Shades are WAY off, confusing to use


It's a shame because this has such potential. Great idea, but bad execution, not only is it difficult to use, the colors are nowhere near the color in real life, so what's the point? I can't speak for all of the brands, but definitely the MAC shades, which I was most looking forward to just aren't right. Russian Red is not a bright orange shade like in the app. I saw this featured on Rachael Ray today and immediately downloaded it but I was disappointed quickly. Also it seems like the face recognition isn't very good, or maybe it's only for thin lips, I have to make my lips thin for the color to cover my full lips, and sometimes it puts it on my nose.

Hopefully it improves, I didn't expect too much since it was free, I guess it's fun for a few minutes to play around with but definitely don't go buying any makeup based on what you see in the app. Little girls will have fun with it though I'm sure!

Cannot choose your colors...


I downloaded and opened this app. Immediately the camera opened and asked me to pick a shade from the left. There were brand names under the shades. There was no ability change shades within the brands. You could use a color wheel to pick shades. Anyway you pick from the shades they give you and the camera puts it on you. I only tried the lipstick and then deleted it because it's not useful if I can't pick a shade

Very cool app


The color search is super fun to play with, you can lose all track of time just snapping photos of things around you and getting results. The virtual try on was really accurate too, really cool to use while my face is moving and not just on a photo.
