Allure names Pearl as one of "Crowdfunded Beauty Innovations You Need to Know"
Crowdfunding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have become popular ways for small businesses to get funding for, well, pretty much anything. But for every pillow infused with divine energy (pass) there is a chic compact that doubles as a travel charger (yes, please). Here are our favorites.
This sleek compact mirror lives a double life as a USB charger with enough juice to charge an iPhone up to two times. Honestly, this product is so simple yet so clever, we can't believe we didn't already have one. And apparently we weren't the only ones to think this: The Pearl was successfully funded on Kickstarter and Indiegogo. It's now available in red, gold, and silver shades at hypershop.com. Bottom line: This is the perfect marriage of beauty and brains.
