Once seen as the wave of the future, mobile apps appear to have become a puddle of sameness for many beauty brands.

While downloads of beauty apps continue on the upswing, a maturing mobile market means consumers are more prone to hit the delete button for those platforms that don’t offer an experience beyond simply buying a product.
