Color measurement for:


In cosmetics, choosing a foundation with the best possible skin tone match can be a daunting task. Nix color sensors are empowering customers by giving them the scientific proof they are buying the perfect shade.

The perfect addition for your industry

Capture the precise skin tone of a customer and automatically find the best matching foundation, coverup, concealer, etc. from your brand’s makeup library. The Nix devices have the ability to measure 10,000s of individual shades, meaning your product offering could be endless. Once your customer has found their best color match, the Nix apps can recommend complimentary cosmetics (lipstick, eye shadow, etc.) to give your customer the perfect look for their particular complexion. The Nix devices can be used in the hands of a beauty expert in-store OR at a self-serve kiosk OR as a take-home kit (using the ultra-affordable Nix Mini 2).
