Wary of trying a new makeup look? Test before you buy with L’Oréal Paris Canada’s Makeup Genius app. The free app, available for Apple and Android phones, uses facial mapping technology to apply different looks using L’Oréal products. And we have to say: the technology is spot on. The lipstick fills in your actual lips, and the eyeliner flicks along the eye like you put it there yourself. The hardest part is keeping a relaxed “resting face” while the app matches the products to the contours of your face. (We’re more inclined to ooh and ahh over the new looks.)

In the end though, we settled on “SO GOOOOD”.
