With all the lockdowns and hygienic concerns about COVID-19, this innovative application makes it easy for customers to choose the right eyebrow ahead of an appointment. “We hope that the Benefit Brow Try-On experience will give our customers the opportunity to see our products and services on their own face while removing one of the final barriers to buying or booking an appointment online,” says Toto Haba, Global Senior Vice President Digital at Benefit Cosmetics in his media release.

Cyber ââfrom LOOK LABS
Cyber ââis the first fragrance encoded in a non-fungible token artwork that accompanies its unisex perfume. âIt’s a combination of my love for fragrances and the search for new, bolder fragrances that are not available on the market,â says Jordan Katzarov, founder of LOOK LABS. âThe main inspiration behind it was the Blade Runner film and what the future beauty product should look like. The centuries-old process of perfume making may coexist in today’s world and with the evolution of the metaverse â. This inspired the founders to use the name âCyberâ and its colors. Each NFT comes with a redeemable physical collector’s edition of the unisex perfume for an additional fee.
The essential part of the fragrance is in fact its fragrance. The top, heart and base notes combine three different wood notes, sandalwood, cedarwood and ambergris. “The idea behind the fragrance is to give you this pulse of energy, but also to slowly neutralize it and relax,” says Jordan. “We believe in the future that fragrances will evolve, they will have even more scientific uses, as they are anti-anxiety and soothing and support general well-being.”
In collaboration with a traditional perfumery boutique in Grasse, France, LOOK LABS focused on different aspects, especially sustainability. The bottle is refillable and not a disposable item.
âTo turn it on, you have to press the power button on the label, the text Cyber ââand Earth and the recyclable symbols light up in bright red. The message we want to send is to dispose of them properly and to have a better “cyber” future together. “

You can’t carry your dermatologist around with you, but pretty much you can with the Neutrogena Skin Scanner! Powered by a camera and app, the scanner measures pores, fine lines, and moisture levels to create a skin score, which is then used to understand your skin’s health and track your progress over time . It processes over 100,000 skin pixels to identify 2,000 facial attributes like dark spots, wrinkles, and others.

It checks in regularly to make sure you have your weekly progress photos and are sticking to your routine.
The app is also an integral part of Neutrogena Mask iD, the personalized face masks from Neutrogena, which are individually adapted in shape and ingredients.

This choice allowed viewers to curate content in a unique way based on their personal tastes, opinions and preferences, âsays Grace Choi, founder of Mink. âMink brings this aspect of individuality and makes the user in the driver’s seat a beauty. Users turn to these images for inspiration. Mink enables them to choose, control and create exactly what they want from their content. “

Load a sheet of mink makeup in the tray and press Submit to print. The makeup sheets are developed in collaboration with cosmetic brands to ensure product quality and performance. After the print is complete, the makeup is essentially ready to be applied. “It can print 16.7 million colors and is so precise that you can see even the finest hair,” adds Grace Choi. âThe cosmetic-grade ink is deposited on Mink’s proprietary make-up sheets and instantly becomes wearable make-up.â To apply, simply slide your finger or brush over the sheet and apply it to the appropriate areas of the face.
It is recommended to use the makeup sheets within 2 weeks of printing. Like regular makeup, soap, water, makeup remover can be used to remove printed makeup.
