The New Year is full of exciting new ventures, with collections and projects being announced left, right and centre – and while Bey’s planning to write and star in a movie on South African legend Saartjie Baartman, her stylist Ty Hunter is becoming a techy, launching a new phone case that promises perfect selfies.

Except the device he’s ‘invented’ isn’t all that new apparently, with the case being extremely similar (and designed for the exact same thing) as the popular “LuMee” case by Allan Shoemake.

“The Ty-Lite runs on its own battery so it doesn’t affect the phone’s battery life, and each charge usually lasts between two weeks and one month depending upon consumer usage.”

Available for $79.99 (versus LuMee’s $49.95-$59) the stylist’s product is available to buy via the Ty-Lite website. But before you shop, tell us what you think to the whole “Ty-Lite”/”LuMee” debate, and whether you’d rather purchase your selfie-perfecting phone case from the celebrity stylist who plays right hand man to Queen Bey’s wardrobe.
