Design and technology have developed immensely over the past decade or so. Whether it’s unlocking your iPhone through face recognition or you no longer have to use a key to start your car’s engine, sometimes we take for granted how modern-day innovations have impacted our lives. With brands across the globe battling it out to become a leader within their industry, it makes you wonder what lengths companies will go to in order to pave the way for the future of consumer needs.
With brands now paying close attention to the desires of their consumers, it has never been more important to focus on the likes of sustainability, whilst creating standout products which are going to make your brand an authority within its industry. To look more in-depth at this topic, 1HQ wanted to look at the future of the beauty industry and one of its potential products.
1HQ believe that the future of lipsticks could be about to change for the better and because of this, they have created a lipstick applicator which they believe has the ability to not only keep in line with technological advances, but which also meets consumer needs at the same time.
Many people who use lipstick often struggle to find a colour which suits their skin type, but could this no longer be an issue? 1HQ’s design uses ‘Drop On Demand’ technology which will allow its formulation to flow through small nozzles and proximity sensors, in order to deliver a unique colour which will not only complement the users skin, but their outfit as well.
One of the most appealing factors about this product is that via the use of built-in software, once a unique colour has been created, the user will then be able to save the colour and even create their own patterns and tones.
How a product is made and packaged is becoming more important to a consumer. This lipstick however can be reused, meaning the constant need for packing is erased. Thanks to inkjet technology this lipstick won’t dry out like today’s products, meaning each use will provide the ultimate look.
Usually when a lipstick is coming to the end of its life, it will be disposed of and a new one will be bought in its place. This will no longer be the case with this applicator, as 1HQ envisages that autonomous filling stations will be located in beauty shops and similar venues.
After reading these points alone you can gain an insight into the possibilities for the future of the beauty industry. It’s an exciting prospect for any beauty fan and we want to hear your thoughts. Join in the conversation on social, using #ProductPredictions.
