Trying on makeup? Fun! Returning makeup? Not so much. It seems like most of the time, you have to have a special sense of ESP to figure out what shades may look best on you in the bottle or tube, which, if you don’t guess it right, can be a costly mistake to make. The Plum Perfect app simplifies things by operating as a virtual beauty assistant, using a selfie to suggest shades that will look best with your complexion in less than a minute.
The free service goes on step further with its Girl Seeks Sample feature, the FIRST of its kind to not only use color-matching technology but also offers up samples that you can try for free or as little as $2, with no subscription commitment, so that you can ensure you have the perfect color and product for you before making a purchase. It’s a pretty foolproof way to experiment with new colors and to become introduced to new brands that you’ve never tried before, such as IMAN Cosmetics or the recently launched Jay Manual Beauty line, which is only about one year old on the market. You can also create lists if wishlist items you’d like to have, and request samples that Plum Perfect will work to procure for you. Pretty cool, right? Technology is amazing, and when you combine it with makeup sampling…the pretty possibilities are endless!
The Plum Perfect app requires iOS 8.0 or later., and is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.
