The Color of Beauty: Because Appearances Matter

Everyone wants to look good. Self-image has never been more important, nor more profitable. We all know color is a critical factor when selecting cosmetics and skin tone products. In fact, a recent study showed that 78% of women say they would change their foundation if they could find a better color match.

We can help cosmetics retailers deliver an exceptional customer experience using the latest technology. CAPSURE Cosmetic delivers a perfect match with its award winning color technology for reading skin color and recommending matching cosmetics products.
