iPhone 5 ~ Crystal iPhone 5 Case from Lux Addiction

Crystal iPhone 5 Case from Lux Addiction

This is a very beautiful iPhone case that I got as a gift that came from Lux Addiction. They're also located here in my home town of Los Angeles so production and shipping was about 12 days total. I initially came across these while searching for something on YouTube. YouTube has become my source for all things beautiful. Anyway, I was looking for a particular item when I came across a video showing a case similar to mine.
I'd seen some in the malls but not as glamorous as these on the website.  I had always wanted one but I thought I would get frowned upon as being too glitzy of something so I never bought one.  I was doing some website work for a friend and I wouldn't accept any money for the things I did.  They insisted on buying me something and I thought this case would make a very nice gift.  I sent them the website and the one I'd chosen and before I knew it, it was here!

Now the case is pretty heavy once it's attached to the phone.  I'm very careful with it and I always lay it down facing down, just because the roses protrude out and I don't want them to get smashed.  The crystals are pretty secure, actually they're glued on pretty tight.  The large crystals on the front, on the four corners are what I use to press the case together.  I think they're there for that purpose.

Once the case is snapped completely shut, it is pretty secure on the phone.  I haven't experienced any looseness or it doesn't feel like it's coming apart at all.  The only little annoying thing is that the crystals at the bottom in front of the phone kind of get in the way when i'm trying to type.  The crystals do not lay flat across the front of the phone, the phone is actually set down into the crystal case so you have to get used to typing if you're holding the phone straight up.  Turning the phone sideways makes it so much easier to type.

The actual case is plastic and once all the crystals were applied, it's borderline heavy.  The design I choose has a lot going on and just in case you can't tell, it's almost all pink.  Pink is one of my favorite colors and there were quite a few pinks on the website to choose from.

The details of the work is very exquisite and beautiful, I still haven't put it on my phone yet because I really don't handle my phone as careful as I should.  It came with a very pretty white satin pouch with a drawstring to store the case in.  I'm sure the phone can be stored inside the pouch as well to protect the phone while not in use.... but who doesn't use their phone lol!

Package wise, it came very carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and not one crystal or flower was out of place.  These cases are not cheap, this one cost $79, not sure if shipping was included or not as I said it was a gift.... but I did get to pick out the one I wanted.

All in all, I recommend this company and their beautiful cases for yourself or as a gift for someone special.  I may actually order myself a not-so-elaborate one and just keep this one to stare at because it's so pretty!
