So, I was contacted by PS Beauty about the launch of their new website which helps you to find, review and rate beauty products specifically matched to your needs. Hooray!
The 'find your perfect foundation' was so impressive. Rather than asking quite general questions about skin type and hair type etc (like a certain beauty box does ahem) they were really specific. It included things like whether your skin is pink or yellow toned and the heaviness of coverage you prefer. It also allows you to tick off a load of products you have tried, so that you won't be recommended something you have already used. There were so many things I haven't tried on there, I started making a mental list of all of the foundations I was going to buy next. My recommendations seemed spot on and I had already heard lots of good things about them.
Once you create an account you can rate and review all those products you have tried, and also see what other things people think. I always go by recommendations especially on the more high end expensive products, but it is always nice to discover new, perhaps cheaper, things that I haven't even thought to give a go (like Maybelline Fit Me which I now love).
There are a few other sections which are being put together too. An inspirations page, with pictures and ideas for new make up and hair, and check in products that you've used. Each product has a link to where you can buy it as well.
The recommendations will stay on your account page when you log in so you can go back to them.
The idea is 'beauty simplified' and it definitely is. Not everybody has time to trawl through reviews and blogs looking for what they are after, and most of us don't have the money to waste on products that aren't good. To try the site out for yourself go here and sign up (it's free).
30 day snap coming soon!
