    "Beautylish is one of the best beauty apps out there. I can see reviews of the product and if I like it, I can order right from the app. The visuals are beautiful. I had an issue with a mascara I purchased and their customer service was wonderful, my item was replaced easily with out effort or hassle. They also offer flex pay so you can pay in installments"

    "It's like Pinterest, but in app form hahah. I learned some tips on here, but honestly, i think you can't contain all fashion advice in one app. It's still useful for women but I don't find much use for beauty apps tbh."


Gone are days of going to the Sephora store to actually swatch all the shades of makeup! L' Oreal has really stepped up its game! Did you know that through their beauty app, you can virtually test on their make-up products? The L'Oreal Makeup Genius app works like a video camera app that lets you move your face--smile, smirk, pout--while the makeup look stays on you. Whether you want a tropical summer day makeup look or a deep smoky eye look with that winged eye-liner, you can definitely try them on. Thanks to ever-evolving technology for transforming the beauty industry. We now have virtual hair and makeup apps!

Well, perhaps one of the biggest nightmares of most ladies is splurging on foundation only to get the wrong shade. This is especially true when the shade swatch is too far from the color payoff of the product. And what is even worse is when they spend on high-end makeup products, because they are totally expensive! Anyway, while L' Oreal takes pride in pioneering a make-up app, there are a lot of other useful beauty apps that you can utilize. There are some that will help you score an appointment in your favorite salon so you won't have to fall in line and wait for your turn. There are also apps that will give you the best natural skincare products that suit your skin type. And if you are on a tight budget, there are even makeup tutorial apps that let you explore your creativity!

    "A lot of in-app purchases means one doesn't get the app one might expect. It works well enough, but it has rather complicated controls. It can give you a good idea of what some makeup can do. "
