PalmPact: Everything a Girl Needs… Attached to Her Phone

Girls, life is hectic. We’ve all got to get out the door and cross the next thing off our ever-growing to do list, right? FaceCase makes doing that so much easier, because it has everything you need for your crazed life all in the palm of your hand. Already breathing a much-needed sigh of relief?

Your phone, your credit cards, your license and lipstick! Yup, that’s pretty much the short list of daily must haves. FaceCase is a small, lightweight compact that attaches to the back of your smartphone. It contains your makeup essentials along with a mirror and it has a slot for your ID, credit cards and cash. Can you say genius? FaceCase comes in two color palettes – trust us, you’ll want them both, and is available in either Rose Gold or Black. Everything in the kits is meant to be multipurpose, lipsticks that double as blush, highlighter that give lips extra sparkle and so on!

But what makes this brand even better – it’s always cruelty-free. No animal testing ever! And it donates 10% of its proceeds to PETA in an effort to get other makeup makers to follow suit. Did we mention its packaging is compostable and recyclable? Talk about a win-win! Be a love and give FaceCase for Valentine’s Day! It’s a gift to animals, the planet, your precious time and your beautiful face!
