L'Oréal Paris, the number one global beauty brand, elevates beauty discovery and experimentation with the launch of a new augmented reality try-on tool. Powered by ModiFace, the "Try On" tool provides consumers with an innovative way to experience more than 300 of the brand's Blush, Eyeshadow, Eyeliner, Lipstick, Lip Liner and Colorista Semi-Permanent Hair Color shades directly from website – no additional apps needed.

The virtual tryout interface features photo-realistic color simulation, allowing consumers to virtually try-on hundreds of L'Oréal Paris beauty products online in real-time. Leveraging ModiFace's patented facial recognition and augmented reality product simulation technology, it is designed to revolutionize the way people discover, interact and shop for L'Oréal Paris products. By inspiring creativity and experimentation among beauty enthusiasts, the tool allows all people to be their own makeup designer.

"Our consumers are at the heart of all our innovations. We continually strive to create bespoke experiences that add value for them in new ways," says Anne Marie Nelson-Bogle, SVP Marketing at L'Oréal Paris. "With this launch, we are excited to transform the way people can experience beauty with a new tool that offers a convenient, instant and personalized way to test L'Oréal Paris products."

The "Try On" tool is not only easily accessible, but also simple to use with just four steps:

It is currently available across hundreds of L'Oréal Paris makeup shades, all Colorista Semi Permanent Hair Color shades and will soon be available for Feria Hair Color. This launch marks one of the first platform innovations stemming from L'Oréal USA's acquisition of ModiFace in March 2018 and the first-time ModiFace technology has been used across multiple categories by a single brand.
