Pout Case: The World's First Mobile Beauty Case

Tuesday, January 16, 2018
Today's post is a little different as it's my first makeup post for 2018 and it's also tech focused as I'm going to be reviewing the world's first mobile beauty case...yes, you read that correctly! I was kindly sent this item for review but obviously all of my opinions/photographs/views are my own.

*Pout Case (£15)
I chose the white/pink colour option although there are others to choose from and I have the option for iPhone 7 but again there are other sizes available (only for iPhones though). Let's explain what it is, first of all it is a sturdy plastic phone case but it is bulkier than the others I've tried as the back of the case has a hidden compartment that slides out to reveal three makeup pans which can be filled with a foundation, concealer, eyeshadow, powder, lipstick, lip balm or highlighter!

The case itself fits my iPhone 7 well, it's easy to attach and remove without scratching my phone and it is bulky/heavier than most cases but it's still practical and easy to use. I love the white and metallic pink colour option and it came really nicely presented/packaged.
There are instructions online as to how you remove the compartment and install the makeup pans as they don't come within the case, you have to add them. It was a little bit fiddly adding the makeup pans but once in the case, they are secure and the size of the pans are great (you get a decent amount of product for your money and for the limited space).

I chose three makeup options including a foundation, concealer and eyeshadow which I'll go into shortly but I wanted to mention that while the front facing camera on my iPhone 7 is ok, it isn't detailed enough for me to see if my makeup is fully blended so I think a small mirror within the hidden compartment would be really useful, even if it means that there are only two makeup pans in the case.
For the makeup, I chose the foundation (in the shade 'gentle ivory'), concealer (in the shade 'porcelain') and an eyeshadow (in the shade 'cafe au lait'). The makeup is all made in Germany and is cruelty free which is absolutely fantastic!

I've been using the case and makeup for almost two weeks now and I have a few opinions, some of which are positive and others are a little less so. I'll start with the makeup positives which include the foundation and concealer shades which are definitely pale enough for my ghostly skin and the foundation texture is quite creamy which suits my dry skin.

In terms of the shade range of foundations and concealers, it isn't great, although they are working on more shades and colours. However the range of lipstick shades and eyeshadow shades is just fantastic! I opted for a slightly boring but very practical, everyday eyeshadow shade and I've been using it so much as it's a slightly darker version of my skin tone so it helps to cover discolouration and provides a little definition.
Overall, I have been loving the case as well as the makeup, especially the foundation and eyeshadow (less so when it comes to the concealer as it can highlight dryness a little). I like the design of the case, the idea is fantastic and it would be great for festivals or travelling; however, it might be a little too bulky for some and if you dropped it, I don't want to think about how messy that would be. Additionally, my phone is new (I bought it new in August 2017) but as it heats up, the foundation and concealer starts to melt, maybe because of the waxes within the product? It does actually help the product become creamy and easier to blend but it doesn't look very nice and maybe the heat will compromise the products in the future.

What do you think about this phone case? I know that growing up in the 90's, this would have been a dream product!
