Thanks to the rise of both virtual and augmented reality, there are now dozens of apps that allow for makeup try-on experiences. Coty is now setting itself apart by launching what it calls "the first full look live mobile-web try on experience," which works directly within a mobile browser, with no app downloads required.
The try-on experience has been launched exclusively with Walmart and shows off five of COVERGIRL's looks from its Spring 2018 collection: the Perfectly Matte Lip, the Smoky Eye, No Makeup Makeup, Doe-Eyed and the Bold Brow. After finding a desired look, the unique mobile experience also gives consumers the chance to instantly shop the featured products from Walmart.
To support the Spring collection and the launch of this shoppable makeup try-on experience, select influencers from the COVERGIRL Collective will be recreating the augmented reality looks with real products on YouTube.
