"Augmented Reality (AR), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Facial Recognition Technologies have become extremely popular in the world of online retail cosmetics, especially with so many people around the world currently living and working from home. We knew that our customers, who have come to expect the best in beauty from our exclusive, gold-standard beauty brand, Motives, deserve the opportunity to test out the superior quality products and shades Motives offers from the comfort and safety of their own home. Therefore, it only made sense to partner with Perfect Corp., known to consumers as having the best technology to virtually 'try on' cosmetics anywhere, any time," said Marc Ashley, President and Chief Operating Officer of Market America Worldwide.
By partnering with Perfect Corp., Market America Worldwide | SHOP.COM will offer global online shoppers a convenient way to try on a multitude of premier beauty products through advanced YouCam-powered virtual try-on technology embedded into the Motives online shopping experience. This innovative try-on technology allows customers to virtually browse and experiment with hundreds of lipsticks, eye shadows and palettes safely and confidently from their computer or smart device, creating a hyper-engaged online shopping experience. The Motives interactive website also gives the company's beauty consultants, known as UFOs, the ability to grow their online businesses by better understanding consumer preferences and shopping behaviors.
"The beauty industry is constantly evolving so Motives prides itself for remaining at the forefront of innovation. Our new partnership with Perfect Corp. will allow us to introduce the brand globally like never before. Entering a new era of virtual connection, I'm excited to take our shopping experience to the next level. Not only will this technology benefit our direct consumers but it will also offer our entrepreneur base a new tool to grow their business," said Beauty Mogul, Founder of Motives and Senior Executive Vice President & Co-Founder of Market America Worldwide | SHOP.COM, Loren Ridinger.
"By integrating YouCam AR and AI technologies into the company's Motives websites, we will create an online shopping experience for our UFOs, their customers and all beauty lovers by providing accurate and realistic simulations that can be tested on any skin tone and adapted to different textures, mattes, sheens and glosses with a choice of 400+ shades of lip and eye colors," Ridinger continued.
