Makeup’s Leap Forward: Color Changeable Cosmetic Implants

by Jami Summers on April 1, 2014 · 12 comments

When I named Bionic Beauty, I never imagined there would be actual “bionic” makeup!  Women have applied makeup in a similar fashion for hundreds of years using brushes, fingers, sponges, cotton, and natural fibers.  Since 1930 women have had the option of permanent makeup – a tattoo that is applied to your face, eyes, or lips – but the process never grabbed mainstream attention until the 1980s.  The drawback of tattoo makeup is the lack of changeability.

Makeup needs a game-changer!  Turns out, it is here. Now.
Pax Color Change Cosmetic Implants - color changing permanent makeup

Blue Sun Research Group has developed Pax Cosmetic Implants. My best friend and research director at Blue Sun Research Group, Dr. Kate Jones, sent me an overview of their new permanent makeup cosmetic implants.

Pax implants are placed under the facial dermis during a quick, outpatient procedure and allow a woman to alter makeup colors on her cheeks, eyelids, and lips through a wireless interface. Basically you can change your makeup look from smokey eye with a nude lip to old Hollywood glamor in just a few minutes!

Pax, short for G-23 Paxilon Hydrochlorate, uses micro-dermal transduction of bio-luminescent liquid crystals to produce color visible on the skin’s surface. Currently there are 147 doctors in the United States authorized to perform Pax Cosmetic Implants; but the amount of doctors performing the procedure should be widespread by late October 2013.

To top it all off, this summer you’ll be able to change color on-the-go, with the Pax smart phone apps!

Will you be visiting your doctor to get the new Pax Cosmetic Implants?  And how often do you think you’d change your makeup through the day?

And after this leap forward, what’s next in the world of makeup?

Stay bionic y’all,

Pax Cosmetic Implant side effects can include: redness, itching, swelling and discomfort at the implantation site(s); permanent or random color changes of the skin; personality changes such as aggression, akathesia, and insomnia; abnormal growth of the first bicuspids; excessive hunger; swelling of the pituitary gland, adrenal gland, and ears; and restless leg syndrome (RLS).

Hmm.. This definitely sounds intriguing but one of the main things that I love about beauty is the aspect of me putting on makeup, by myself. It’s like a ritual, and it relaxes me and just makes me feel happy! Despite my wonky eyeliner at times and the overwhelming blush, I don’t think I’ll be trading in the joy and fun I get out of makeup anytime soon.

Wow – this looks awesome. I would be a bit scared to have the implants put in but I’m pretty lazy, so I like the idea of being able to change make up colours that easily!

Hi Angela,
While I agree that changing colors would be wonderful, I would also be pretty terrified of having implants like this. Little nano-bots in my face? No thanks. :) Thankfully, it was just my creation of an April Fools. Woot!
Cheers,
Jami

This sounds a bit out there but I guess being the in the age where sci-fi is turning into reality, this is totally believable (though I can’t get my head around it yet). If these implants do become a norm, I think it would suck because playing with physical makeup is so much fun!

I was reading in disbelief until I noticed the date on it. I am sure though that some people would try it if given the chance.

I was a little scared for a moment until I read the comments and realized this was an April fool’s joke.

Hi Coya,
Welcome to Bionic Beauty! Actually I kind of scared myself coming up with this whole idea. Can you imagine how amazingly creepy something like this would be? Zoinks. :-)
