Frequently Asked Questions

The product

What is it?

MATCHCo’s My Perfect Complexion Tinted Hydrating Formula is a completely custom makeup blended to match your unique skin tone. 

Product Size, Price and Use

The 1 ounce bottle typically lasts 6-12 weeks assuming daily use, and can be applied once or several times during the day as desired.

Product Match

MATCHCo’s breakthrough software was tested with hundreds of women of varying skin tones. The software normalizes indoor room light and the characteristics of each iPhone camera to give you a perfect match every time.

Product Application

Warm up 1-2 pumps of your product between your fingertips and blend over your entire face. Rub in the formula as you would your moisturizer. You can layer additional product anywhere you want additional coverage. The ease of application and seamless color matching technology eliminates the need for application with a brush or sponge.

Phone Types and Models

The MATCHCo App works on iPhone models 5s and above (5S, SE, 6, 6 Plus, 6S, 6S Plus, 7 and 7 Plus).  We do not support iPads or the iPod Touch.

Operating System

iOS 9. MATCHCo does not support Android phones at this time but we are planning to support Android phones soon.


How does the MATCHCo App work?

The six step scanning process is simple and takes less than two minutes. Our voice guided app scans and measures your skin tone at five locations on your wrists and face, then calculates your perfect match.

Tips To Nail A Perfect Match

Before you start:
1. Remove makeup from cheeks and forehead.
2. Push back your sleeves and remove all jewelry from your wrist.
3. Pull your hair back from your face.
4. Sit at an indoor table, away from direct sunlight.
5. Place a small stack of white paper on the table.
6. Remove your phone case.
7. Turn your phone over and check the camera lens location.

While you scan:
Tap the phone flat against your skin so that camera lens makes direct contact with the targeted scanning area. The App will guide you all the way. 

Will wearing makeup during the scanning process affect results?

Yes, it’s important that the App measures your unique color - not the color of your makeup.

What other factors can affect the accuracy of your scan?

Wait five minutes before scanning to allow your color to normalize after showering, washing your face, exercising, or coming in from the cold.

Can I scan my face and place an order at any time of day or night?

You can scan any time as long as you are indoors with normal indoor lighting, away from direct sunlight. 

 Why do I need three to five sheets of paper to scan?

The App uses the white paper to make adjustments for your individual phone and lighting conditions. We use a stack of paper to ensure the table surface does not show through and affect the phone camera calibration.

What happens to my skin scans? Where are they saved?

We save your digital scan data within your private account profile and order history. 

How many times a year should I rescan?

We suggest scanning every 2-3 months to ensure your Custom Tinted Hydrating Formula is a perfect color match as your skin tone can change up to 30% per year due to varying levels of sun exposure.
