Whether you’re browsing in a department store or a discount store, use this app to access more than 280,000 reviews of every conceivable kind of cosmetic product—makeup, shampoo, conditioners, hair dryers, moisturizers, sunscreens, nail polish, and more. Never buy a dud again.

Hair Cast
Free for Android
Enter your hair type, and this app will use GPS data to provide a daily “forecast” about how the weather will affect your hair. It will warn you of humidity or wind that could ruin a blowout, or rain that could dampen an updo. You’ll also receive a tip for styling your particular hair type in whatever the day’s weather is, so you won’t get stuck wearing a hat … again.

Marie Claire Beauty Genius
$1.99 for iPhone
This app features instructional videos on how to re-create celebrity hairstyles, runway makeup, and the season’s hottest beauty looks, along with general makeup and hair tricks. The app also features a new Wedding Looks section.

Free for iPhone and Android
Preloaded with MAC Cosmetics products and colors, users fill in blank makeup templates to create custom cosmetic looks. The face templates can be customized by style and shape, and the completed charts can be saved and emailed to friends. The Pro version allows professional artists to save and re-edit charts, as well as do more detailed application.

Whether you need to order products on the fly or just figure out whether that pricey shampoo is worth trying, there’s an app that can make you wonder, How did I ever live without this? Life is beautiful, and you can be, too.
