Fashion and Technology: The Looker iPhone Case Review

Photo Source: Mobile Togs

If you're anything like me, then even the thought of leaving your phone at home causes you to have a mild panic attack and impulsively reach for your iPhone. Despite my extreme attachment disorder concerning my phone and my love for getting dressed up, I surprisingly have never been too concerned with what case my phone is "wearing." So when I was given the opportunity to review a new high function case for on the go fashionistas, I figured anything that would make my baby phone even more amazing was worth testing out.

The first thing I noticed about this case (besides the massive mirror of course) was how soft the material and how comfortable the case subsequently felt in my hand. The second thing I noticed was how much other people seemed to notice my case.

The Good: Never has a phone case gotten as much attention from friends, family, and strangers like the Looker case. Everywhere I go people are constantly remarking on how "cool" it is that I have a mirror and a place to keep my metro card. To be honest, I never knew what I was missing in a phone case until I tried The Looker Case from Mobile Togs out. It seems so simple and intuitive to have a realmirror on a phone case however this is the first case to actually do so. Through out my days of running around at work and the city at night, I'm constantly checking myself out to make sure everything is still as it should be and never have any issues finding my metrocard for the subway.

The Bad: My case got dirty fast! I'm talking by day three it looked like my phone had been rolling around the new york city streets bottom of a landfill. Okay so maybe that was an exaggeration but my phone case almost instantly had a dirty grayish-black color that did not go away. That was a huge bummer for me because although I love the case, I don't like walking around with an iPhone case that looks dirty. Which brings me to my second gripe, I wish the cases came in more colors and with more designs or the option to customize your case. I choose the orange Tangerine case partially because I like the color and partially because there were limited overall choices. I think in the future if they come out with a black case I would try that as I'm assuming the darker colors would have less issues with starting to look "dingy" or "dirty".

Overall I really like the case and at the price of $19.99 I feel like its a good investment to make on a case that is really high functioning (can you say "selfies" and OOTD photos for instagram and twitter are sooo much better with a built in mirror) and comfortable to hold.

Comment below and let me know what you think about this case, will you be trying it out?!

  1. This case sounds awesome, I really want to get one. I had never heard of it before but it seems like it would be perfect for me!!

  2. Hi there!

    Thanks for the review! I wanted to add a quick note that we've always had a black case.

    As far as getting dirty goes, it goes both ways. I've used every color of case and the only time I noticed the case getting noticeably dirty was when I used my Tangerine Tango case in Mexico. But we did some serious traveling and were in and out of "dirty" areas. Maybe there's just more dirt in the city?

    Also, a quick way to clean up your case is to put it on the top rack of your dishwasher - mirror & all! :) Having a dish-washing detergent that has Oxyclean in it helps, too. I wouldn't wash it with dishes though. You'll be surprised how new it looks when it's done!

    Lastly, we actually are in the process of rolling out:
    * The Designer - A completely customizable case giving customers the option to have printing on the mirror! Check out

    * The Looker, being for fashionistas and anyone on the go, keeps on track with Pantone trends. We'll be rolling out our Spring & Summer colored cases soon!

  3. This case is so cool! I tried those mirrored screen protectors or whatever but ended up hating them. Bummer about the dirt problem though. My case current case is the same way and I don't like that about it either.
