Have you ever been interested in trying a new lip color but you really don't want to buy it unless you can try it on? I have discovered the COOLEST thing... my favorite lippy is available to try online!
Y'all. I am a HUGE fan of long lasting liquid lipsticks. I use them on myself and my clients. They go on like a gloss, and stay (mostly) all day with minimal touchups.
So here's the sitch: I was helping my mom pick out a new lip color for a birthday party she was going to the other day, and in my lipstick collection I have several of the L'Oreal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Lip Colors (because they're AWESOME) but... I didn't think we found the *perfect* shade for her.
If only there was a way to try on colors I don't have? I thought to myself.
Fast forward to today when I was cruising Amazon for more L'Oreal Infallible lip colors... and stumbled upon a TRY NOW link and decided to check it out. Here's a step-by-step look at how it works!
On Amazon, underneath the picture of the Lip Color you'll see a "TRY NOW" button.
Click it, baby!
On the next screen you can choose a model or upload your own photo. Because I really wanted to put this try on to the test, I uploaded a selfie.
I wanted to see how close the color simulation came to the real thing. It has to be a true-to-color try on for it to be helpful, right? I own "Everlasting Caramel" (love it) so I put it on my lips, took a photo of it, and clicked that color on the Amazon try on.
The verdict? Pretty gosh darn close! Not a perfect match - after all, it is a simulated color on a digital image that was taken in different lighting on a different day, but I'd say it's certainly close enough to give me a GREAT & more importantly ACCURATE idea of how this color would look on me.
Color me Impressed! (side note: that would make a great lipstick name, don't you think? lol)
I'm hooked. Now I had to try on shades I would NEVER choose for myself. And this is where it gets interesting. I found a few I LOVED. These were my favorites:
Rose Tattoo try on HERE
- freakin amazing nude
Cherry Noir try on HERE
- well hello there amazing purply color!
Berry Chic try on HERE
- pop of pink without being obnoxious
Coral Constant try on HERE
-ahhh delicate coral pink. LOVE
I'm sure there are other cool try-on simulators out there, I just found this one to be SO convenient and pretty accurate... which color would YOU try?
