Try & Shop Lipsticks Straight from your Phone with New Free App!

Ladies, how many times have you browsed online for make up, in particular lipstick, found what looks like a fab shade but either haven't purchased purely for the fact that you aren't sure if it will actually suit you or even worse, you have purchased it only to realise that it looks absolutely horrific on you!! Well now you can try before you by online from top brands such as Bobbi Brown, Charlotte Tilbury, Clinque, YSL and more and all with the help of a simple and free app!
Think if the time you will save, trying on loads of different shades in store when you can do it all on your phone and buy at the click of a button.. Genius!

Makeupplus' COUNTER, by Meitu which launches today provides an opportunity to try on and shop lip products straight from any smartphone. By combining Meitu’s Artificial Intelligence-based facial recognition with Augmented Reality technology, millions of MakeupPlus users can realistically simulate the beauty counter lip colour try-on experience through their smartphone camera, without the mess or trip to the department store. The app’s leading technology accurately applies lip products to the user’s lips in real time, rendering unique finishes such as matte, cream, bitten, glossy, metallic and shimmer.

A pioneer in mobile beauty and selfie experiences since 2008, Meitu’s apps are used by more than 450 million monthly active users worldwide, generating more than 6 billion photos and videos each month. Its flagship augmented reality virtual try-on app, MakeupPlus, uses patented facial recognition and machine learning algorithms to map each user's unique facial features, offering the most precise and natural virtual makeup application for each user’s unique skin tone and facial structure. With the addition of COUNTER to MakeupPlus, the app has emerged as the leading digital ecosystem for beauty – encompassing virtual try-on, AR filters, content exploration, trend spotting, makeup tutorials and m-commerce.
