I have to say, I was pretty excited to try the MatchCo app.
By utilizing the camera on your smartphone, MatchCo takes images of your skin on both sides of you wrist, your cheeks, and your forehead.
It’s definitely easy to use, and the idea of having a fully customized foundation, complete with your name on the bottle sounds pretty awesome and revolutionary.
You must be makeup-free to do the scans, and you will also need to calibrate your phone before scanning. It’s super easy and the voice walks you through each step.
Once you’ve finished your scans, it gives you the option to purchase for $49, plus shipping (free if you choose Priority Mail – that’s a quick turnaround!)
If your foundation arrives, and for some reason it’s not a perfect match (mine was not – I believe it’s due to the redness in my cheeks – don’t worry, you can return it within 30 days and try again.
I think this is a great way to purchase foundation if you don’t have too much redness in your face – that seems to throw everything off balance. But for pale, even, less red skin tones, I believe you will be pleased. If not, there’s nothing to lose!
