Admit it, you tried the technology detox, and you failed. You love your phone. And why wouldn’t you, it does absolutely everything for you. Your entire life is on that little device from passwords to screenshots of outfits you love. Well, now your phone case is getting in on that multifunctional action too.
Pout Case is the world’s first iPhone makeup case, and brainchild of former investment banker, Nafissa Chodieva. She saw a gap in the market when she found herself heading from the gym to the boardroom with no makeup. Her sister kindly lent her a compact, which she attached to her phone with a hairband and thus the idea was born.
The Case and Makeup
The case itself comes in 4 colours: black and gold, black and pink, white and gold, white and pink. And it’s slim-fit design is made to protect your phone as well as carry your three makeup options.
Just like the case’s multifunctionality, the makeup is designed to do the same thing. The Lipstick comes in 7 shades of red and can double up as a blusher. The Foundation has 4 colour options and can be used for concealing or contouring. The final option, and probably my favourite, is the lip balm which comes in one shade: colourless.
“It made sense in terms of makeup, to keep things simple and multifunctional, for when consistently on the go, you need to keep application quick and convenient without the need to always pull out a make-up bag, along with numerous brushes.” says Nafissa.
I won’t lie, I’m kind of excited about this. Firstly, I spend so much time looking in my bag for my lip balm that having it in a more accessible place is really appealing. Secondly, I travel a lot so having the key essentials in your phone frees up some hand luggage space. Thirdly, I carry around a tonne of stuff on a daily basis (laptop, camera, notebook, water bottle, etc.). Being able to leave the makeup case at home is a winner.
If you’re like me and are quite picky about what you put on your face the makeup line promises to be about quality, easy application and multi-use. The German made products also contain heat sensitive formulas, so they won’t get all melty while you use and hold your phone.
The cost? £30 for the Pout Case – £20 for three makeup refills.
What do you think? Would you trade your current case for one of these?
