You guys! I’m seriously excited about what I just heard about on Twitter. Makeupalley now has their reviews database easily searchable via product barcode scan. I’m so excited, I found myself testing it out on stuff in my bathroom at 1:00 am! The makeup lover and nerd in me are both ecstatic, because it works.
Do you ever find yourself in the drugstore (or any store) looking at beauty products and wondering if you should drop your cash on them? Have you ever actually grabbed your smartphone and googled that item before you put it in your basket? I sure have! Weeding through reviews is tedious enough, but doing it in a store is too time consuming when you just want a fast answer – does it suck? DOES THIS $12 THING SUCK OR NOT?
Well, get a load of THIS! Download Makeupalley’s app to your smartphone, open it, and look for the little barcode icon:
Ok do you see it? Now tap on it and something that looks like a camera screen will appear on your phone. Scan the barcode of your Item of Scrutiny by holding it between the guidelines on your screen, and THEN:
Are you freaking kidding me?!?! Easy access to all of Makeupalley’s product reviews at my fingertips?! The feature works so well, too! Just scan and there’s the review page; click on any review to see it in its entirety. This site’s wealth of reviews is amazing, too. If it’s not there, it’s really new or hella obscure.
LIFE. CHANGING. I shall buy crappy products no more!
