However, the app comes in handy for salons and body art fans. Or for everyone who wants his or her youngster dreams come true at least on a photo while keeping the real-life body “clean” as nature has made it.

In case you need more glasses online from other brands, check app. It features hundreds of frames from Ray-Ban, Oakley, Burberry, Coach and others. The experience is not that smooth as with Warby Parker’s - you need to adjust your face position to make sure the glasses fit right. But the choice of frames to wear at home is truly diverse.

#4. YourCam for hairstyles try on iOS, Android

There are companies who aimed to launch virtual haircuts and hair recolor app try-ons. Yet, only a few succeeded in bringing mature technology that goes far beyond manual selfie editing but provides real-time experience. Modiface is the one who did.

Youcam apps are powered with Modiface’s real-time 3D facial tracking and face segmentation technology. It allows you to try on makeup, change the color of your hair. With their recent demo in SEC2019 of AR mirror, the hair recoloring experience is the example all brands should follow.

This year Sephora's virtual makeover app goes beyond lipsticks and lip glosses. It also expands to eyeshadows and eyeliners allowing you to augment the full-face makeup virtual try-on. You can virtually try on different looks and makeup outfits by simply swiping the filters. Or browse products based on category, brand, colour or favourites to see it live on your face.

#6. L'Oreal make up tool for virtual cosmetics try on 

Virtual makeovers can’t be mentioned without L’Oreal since it's the #1 brand that transforms the beauty AR experience. Of all the makeup tools and apps powered with AR and AI, its Makeup Genius app beats all competitors in features and performance. L’Oreal also offers super diverse virtual try-on features via its site allowing consumers to try on hair colors and cosmetics before the purchase.

#7. Plum Perfect for personalized makeovers


Another makeup try on from Plum Perfect deserves special attention due to its fantastic personalization approach to makeup try-ons.

At a click of a button, you can get your unique makeup look and see products that suit your facial features and skin.

#8. Laura Lively app for necklaces virtual try on iOS

See how necklaces look on you or match with your evening dress. The technology of neck segmentation overlays virtual jewelry on your selfie helping you to shop for the best-fit items. The concept is great but photo-only experience fails to unleash this virtual try-on experience.

#15. Your app iOS + Android?

Enough about other brands’ apps. The idea behind all of them is that e-commerce is changing rapidly. Virtual try-on apps help brands overcome the pain points like product returns or customer engagement.

And while most of the apps listed above are cool in their concept, they still fail to provide a sleek and convenient virtual try on experience. One that happens in real time, not via painful photo editing.
