In 2014, French cosmetic company, L'Oreal launched the Makeup Genius app, which uses augmented reality technology to allow users to "virtually" apply L'Oreal make-up products to a digital image of themselves. This allows users to see how different shades and mixes would look on them. Once consumers make a choice, the app directs them to online marketplaces to complete the purchase. L'Oreal Makeup Genius app also recommends to consumers products that can suit their needs and personalities.

The app also augments the time-saving and convenience factor of online shopping.
- The app collects user data to offer a personalized shopping experience to consumers by means of suggesting products that match their tastes, and sending alerts about new product launches.
