It has a big impact on business, it has a big impact on the way you interface with consumers, but you have to have the full support of the executive committee and of the CEO.. It’s a question of investment; it’s a question of talent; and digital is hot right now – it’s precious, there’s a lot of turnover – so you have to recruit them, retain them, make them dream about your company. That’s really important.” said Lubomira Rochet, L’Oréal’s chief digital officer. (Telegraph)

Review from a happy user on the iTunes Store

“Such a fun app! It allows you to try on different makeup looks for day or night, and once you find the perfect look it gives you all the product info. I also used it in-store to scan a product and test out the lip color via the app before I purchased it!“ (September 22, 2015)
