In 2014 Fabletics branched out into the UK, Germany, and France. Later that year, they branched out again to Canada. By January 2015, Fabletics had shipped out a million purchases.

Slyce Ushers In A Revolution

Co-Founders Erika Racicot and Cameron Chell of the Toronto based Slyce are all set to dominate online retailing. With the acquisition of the Tel-Aviv Pounce, they are set to roll out a stand alone app as well as a feature for established brands to include in their own apps that will revolutionize the way people shop and purchase online.

Pounce is a feature that allows consumers to scan photos in marketing flyers or circulars with their camera phone to retrieve detailed information. The feature also allows them to enter their purchase information once and make purchases from multiple stores. Slyce is an image recognition feature that also uses the camera on a phone to scan an image, but it can scan the actual product itself and then provide detailed product and purchasing information from online retailers.

Features like this are already in use by Amazon, but the Amazon apps are limited in their ability to search based on the need for product packaging for recognition. This cuts out a huge segment of online sales because of the number of consumer products that don’t require packaging in the first place, like cars or clothing items. Amazon argues that the feature is most useful for price comparison when people are already looking to purchase an item in a physical store, and therefore have the product in its packaging right in front of them.

But imagine you are walking down the street or sitting in a restaurant and see someone with a great bag, briefcase or fantastic pair of shoes. Rather than awkwardly approaching them and relying on their memory to determine where and when the item was purchased, now you can surreptitiously just snap a pic and let Slyce find the product for you. Slyce works on an extremely sophisticated algorithm that allows it to scan very minute features that help it narrow down the specific product by searching through a multitude of item pictures most retailers already have stored online.

Slyce first works to determine very broadly what it is looking at, such as a dress, a boat or a golf club. If it determines it is looking at a golf club, it can then begin to narrow down the exact club it is looking at based on a vast number of features. First, it will of course determine whether it is looking at a putter, a driver or a wedge, but then it can narrow it down even further based on minute features unique to that particular club. It will then scan millions of pictures online to come up with not only an exact match, but the other closest available matches in case the product is out of stock, on back order or unavailable.

Smart Beauty Products Shopping Tips For Women: Is Lime Crime For You?

These days, everyone’s digging around especially online to find beauty products that work. Honestly, I’m not too ambitious when searching for quality beauty cosmetics. Well, it’s expected because most men aren’t. Women are quite the contrast, especially when shopping for makeup. I’ve put together a novice-proof guide to help women shop for quality cosmetics online.

Lately, I’ve realized that a plethora of holistic beauty products has surfaced. Sadly, it’s fooled the masses. Studies have revealed that some are simply the byproducts of organic ingredients. That said, someone who’s interested in organic cosmetics should go for those that are 100% potent. In comparison, some women prefer synthetic produce which are widely popular and often cheaper. Nonetheless, it largely depends on the brand and what’s in it. The first rule of buying beauty products is knowing which type is most suitable. There are several considerations to take into account, such as the budget, skin type, and other factors. I’ve tried both synthetic and organic beauty products. I’ve even ditched the synthetic ones entirely and went green for a while. I’ll admit, it was a pocket-draining experience for me at first, but after much research and trial, I found products that complemented my budget. Favorably, it complemented my skin as well. I fully support women doing the same, but instead of taking the trial and error approach, which is overwhelmingly expensive. I suggest that women research about the best products before investing. It’s the easiest recourse and reduce their out-of-pocket cost. In fact, it’s a smarter shopping idea.

I honestly think that every woman has a skin care routine. Sadly, some aren’t conscious of it, which contributes to a hectic shopping especially when buying beauty products. Those using synthetic beauty cosmetics are naturally eager to continue. The million dollar question is whether it’s doing justice to her skin or character. Although consistency is an encouraged routine, it’s only beneficial if it’s generating positive feedback. Understanding the benefits of using holistic and synthetic beauty products is absolutely crucial. As such, consumer education is the key. The label of a woman’s favorite skin care product or makeup line is the dictionary to learn about what’s been absorbed into the bloodstream. Women unknowingly consent to poison the skin every day. With education, she stands a better chance of making an informed decision before the purchase.

Another concern a woman should openly acknowledge when buying beauty products is her skin type. Everyone’s skin reacts differently to foreign elements. As such, the potency of a beauty product should be taken into account. It’s all-important to acknowledge any form of a skin condition or allergies before using beauty products. 100% organic brands rarely activate an allergic reaction. Unfortunately, the branding alone isn’t enough to justify the claims. Every eco-minded woman should take the time to research organic beauty cosmetics carefully before using it too. I’ve come across numerous cases of sad, beauty product investments gone painfully wrong.

Nowadays, some women continue to support their traditional makeup routine. In contrast, others convert to using fancier varieties like Lime Crime on dollskill. It’s a cosmetic brand started by the talented Russian-born makeup artist Doe Deere. She launched her sensational line of beauty products back in 2004. It’s since generated a throng of fairy-tale fans worldwide. With Lime Crime, imperfections become perks and largely those who wear it, feel unapologetically unique. Based in Los Angeles, Doe, and her team continue to release cheerier, cruelty-free, true-to-color cosmetics without regrets. Interestingly, she started her empire with a small investment and a vision. Today she’s empowering women to become confident and embrace their true identity with Lime Crime beauty products.
