my place in geekdom is confirmed

I really have a hard time finding lipstick the right color. And have thrown away too much money on the wrong color.

So I thought - why doesn't someone make an application where you take a photo of yourself with a white piece of paper. Then your true lip color could be converted to HSL or LAB and matched against a database of lipstick colors and voila! The best and right shade would be found.

If only I knew of an online lipstick color database.

The first test results are in though because I used this method last week to pick out a new hair color. This could be used for foundation as well but I haven't a clue how one would figure out the right luminosity.

See? Geekdom, confirmed.
