2. Pretty in my Pocket
Scouring the internet all night to find out if that pricey cleanser you’ve been eyeing up has a bad rap? Nobody’s got time for that! With Pretty in my Pocket (PRIMP), you can scan any product and read its reviews by beauty bloggers or other users of PRIMP. Then feel free to get your beauty groove on by browsing hundreds of looks created by experts and shopping the exact products they used. The most beautiful part? PRIMP-ing yourself will land you Perks from a list of brands that you can redeem in store or online.
In addition to letting you shop beauty, this app nudges you when your favorite products are on sale. Need I say more?
4. Think Dirty
Get the dirty deets on toxic ingredients that might be lurking in your cosmetics. Simply scan a product to see its score on the Dirty Meter, then school yourself on those hard-to-pronounce ingredient names.
Stay in your pajamas and binge-watch your series of choice while an expert fulfills your beauty requests in the comfort of your own home (brow wax on the couch, anyone?). A Beauty Squad will even come to your hotel room or office. Schedule an appointment as little as one hour in advance.
6. L'Oreal Makeup Genius
Not sure if a rosy-brown lippie would look as flattering on you as it does on Kylie Jenner? No biggie. L’Oreal’s Makeup Genius App allows you to test red carpet makeup looks and actual L’Oreal products on yourself so that you can address your every beauty qualm.
Sure, good things come to those who wait, but who has time to wait an hour for a hair appointment? *Cricket chirps* Exactly, no one. Which is why Priv may be your new BFF. You name it—mani, massage, personal training—Priv’s got it. Services are brought directly to you whenever, wherever.
