Hey guys! My blog has come out of retirement to share something pretty cool that I had a chance to try out. No, it's not nail polish or make up - but it IS related!
I was approached by GE Lighting to give my bathroom a lighting makeover. I didn't think I needed one, I mean, I certainly had lighting in my bathroom. I knew that nothing is quite as good as natural light, and since I don't have a window in my bathroom, I am definitely reliant on my over the sink lighting. When ever I tried to take a swatch pic in my bathroom on a cloudy day or after the sun is down, I would notice that my skintone looked off. So maybe I DID need a lighting makeover! Boy did I!
Here's some before pics of my bathroom - nothing fancy going on here:
Now check out the AFTER pics with the new GE Reveal bulbs:
Both pics are taken with my iPhone and both with just 2 bulbs. WOW I really couldn't and still can't get over the differences! I've lived in this place for over 3 years, and this was the first time that I realized that my bathroom wasn't cream colored! Seriously.
Ok. Now here's the big reveal....this one BLEW me away when I saw the side by side pics.
Here's a swatch pic of OPIs Warf! Warf! Warf! and a Zoya Carter accent nail, before and after my GE Reveal lighting makeover - both pics are taken in the same location, minutes apart from each other, on the same day:
WOW! The pics really speak for themselves. It's really no wonder that my makeup looked off whenever I left my home - my skintone is completely different with my old lighting!
Here's some official info about the bulbs, right from GE themselves:
GE Lighting releases Groundbreaking New LED light-bulb as part of the GE reveal® Brand
This fall 2013, GE Lighting released a groundbreaking LED light bulb as part of the GE reveal® brand, engineered to have the same familiar size and shape of an incandescent bulb but deliver big energy and cost savings. By January 2014, traditional incandescent light bulbs will no longer be manufactured in the United States due to their energy inefficiency and changing energy regulations. The new GE reveal® LED is a great alternative to incandescent bulbs, in addition to various other energy-efficient light bulbs that GE already currently offers.
The new reveal® LED bulbs provide the same benefits of all GE reveal® light bulbs including:
*filtering out dull yellow rays of most bulbs, enhancing the colors and patterns within your home
*providing crisp white light that brings out colors, making whites appear whiter,
reds redder, and allows patterns throughout your home to pop
*filling rooms with enhanced, vivid surrounding light
The new GE reveal® LED light bulbs also are the best energy-efficient light bulbs available, lasting more than a decade based on three hours of use each day. They are offered in 40- and 60-watt replacements, as well as a popular BR-30 shape for recessed fixture down-lighting.
