Sweets for Your iPhone: Case-Mate Drip Ice Cream Cone Case Review

“Without ice cream, there would be darkness and chaos.”
Don Kardong

Summer can be summed up in six ways: bikinis, wedge sandals, oversized sunglasses, cutoff denim shorts, the beach, and…ice cream. While I equate pints of Ben & Jerry’s AmeriCone Dream and Chocolate Therapy to bad breakups; to me, a dripping ice cream cone is like an unofficial summer mascot. So, when Case-Mate gave me the opportunity to select a new outfit for my iPhone, I zoned in on the new Sweets Trio – ultimately bypassing the ultra-adorable Delight Cupcake Case and Swirl Lollipop Case in favor of the Drip Ice Cream Cone Case.

I have owned a number of Case-Mate cases over the past few months; and from personal experience, I have found that they are always consistent in relation to bulkiness. While the Drip Ice Cream Cone Case features 3-D cutouts illustrating sprinkles (the cutest detail ever!), the ice cream, and the cone itself; the case in its entirety remains slim and sophisticated, protecting your phone without making it feel hefty. Plus, the textured silicone provides for a tighter, easier grip (so there are less accidental drops).

Online, I feel that the colors appear slightly lighter than they do in real life. In reality, the case itself is more of a mint/turquoise hue; and the ice cream is a deeper pink color. While I love sorbet/pastel colors, I actually prefer the deeper shades, as they pair so perfectly with denim for the summer – and add such a fun pop of personality to your phone!

♥ Summer-perfect shades and a playful design that fully make the season a little sweeter! ♥
♥ Form fitting, flexible silicone shell that protects your iPhone at all times (even covering corners); while allowing access to all ports and functions when in use. ♥
♥ Impact resistant. ♥
♥ Raised silicone pieces that make grip stronger; whilst creating a yummy 3-D effect. ♥

The absolute perfect accessory for the boardwalk! The Case-Mate Drip Ice Cream Cone Case totally earns summer’s seal of approval!

Gorgeous. One of the sweetest I have ever seen. Yes, no bulky is one of the most important factors in choosing a phone case for sure.
