If you thought one-stop beauty shopping was as easy as it could possibly get when Sephora opened its doors, you were wrong. U*Tique, a beauty vending machine debuting at Fred Segal in Santa Monica, CA, is making shopping for a new lipstick infinitely easier and incredibly more exciting than ever before. Just select your desired product from it’s touch screen, swipe your credit card, and off you go.
Featuring brands such as Bliss, Lancome, Chantecaille, C.O. Bigelow, Lancaster, and Lipstick Queen, you can stock up on all your favorites completely hassle free without annoying salesperson chatter or infuriating lines at a register. And with an edited selection of fifty frequently updated must-have-right-now products from iconic labels as well as up-and-comers, you no longer have to worry about spending your money on anything less than the best.
Don’t fret, though, the lack of a salesperson doesn’t translate to a lack of helpful information. Rather, the touch screen allows you to read all about the products and U*Tique will even give you free samples! Doesn’t get much better than that.
