Customers can then see a computer-generated image of what they would look like wearing a wide range of foundations, blush, eye products and lipsticks. “Due to the coronavirus, it felt uncomfortable to test cosmetics after someone had used them,” said shopper Cho Yu-lim, 24, as she peered into the full-length mirror, which...

Now a herd of dinosaurs has also been added to this list, each of which uses graphics developed for the...
