DFS stores in 16 international cities – including Hong Kong and Macau – will be featuring Meitu Magic Mirrors for the next year.
The connected device allows customers to see their desired makeup style applied directly to their face, just as if they were standing in front of a mirror. An AI algorithm is used to make personalised recommendations based on customers’ facial features. Photos taken by the device can be shared on social media.
The Meitu Magic Mirrors will be installed in 22 stores, in cities including Macau, Singapore, Indonesia, Japan, Australia, the UAE and the US.
According to reports, the effect is true-to-life and product colours and textures are accurately displayed. It is designed to drastically lower the time shoppers spend trying out products, while preventing sanitary concerns that can arise when sampling items in a public venue.
Previously, the Meitu Magic Mirror has been used to promote Lancome, Nars Cosmetics, Make Up Forever, Sephora, and Dolce & Gabbana.
Meitu is a Chinese AI-driven photo/video editing and sharing company that also produces smartphones.
