Matrix Color Lounge app 3VR

*sponsored post

Happy Wednesday, folks! I’m writing this at one in the morning, and I just noticed the coolest thing while moderating a few late-night comments: theNotice passed 20 000 comments this week!

(Yes, really, twenty THOUSAND. For all of you wondering why it’s been three years and I still haven’t managed to switch over to Disqus successfully… well, that’s why. The importer keeps panicking and crying and breaking.)

So, to everyone who’s ever left a comment, thank you. Thank you so, so much. You guys are the bread and butter of theNotice, and I’m so happy to be able to share each and every day with you!

But back to the topic at hand: the new Matrix Color Lounge. You know those makeover websites that you used to be able to go to to put fake blush and blonde wigs on your picture? Well, the Color Lounge is like that, but it’s the next generation of makeover apps.

It uses colour filters to let you try on a new colour on your actual hair, and gives you the option of adding things like highlights, ombré, and colour blocking to your new look, too. I gave the Color Lounge a go to try on grey, violet, and red hair, and I was really happy with my results — it lets you highlight what is and isn’t your hair, and even works on dark hair.

  1. Congrats to that amazing number! :D I always feel like comments should be a much bigger indicator for a blogs relevance. What good are thousands of followers that never comment?

    As a teen I used to dye my hair a purplish pink colour that I really loved and it is my dream hair colour. It was called Rose Red and I could only buy it in the city, two hours away. I love that funky hair colours have caught on now and are readily available. This app looks awesome!

  37. andrea amy, on February 11th, 2016 at 11:20 pm said:

    I'm naturally blonde and I've never wanted to be anything but blonde. I did try to be a strawberry blonde before, and I liked the look, although the colour wouldn't "stick" to my hair. Even though it was a permanent dye, it washed out in less than a week!

    I have always wanted to try auburn, always been brunette.

  77. I've always loved deep blue or deep purple – I've done purple chunks before and loved it, but it was a lot of upkeep. I also love fire engine red – I've done that and it was a lot of upkeep and damaged my hair which I didn't love. I like to change my hair colour a lot though…it's fun!

  78. Angela Mitchell, on February 17th, 2016 at 1:31 pm said:
