7 can't-miss apps: Fake it for Pokémon Go, Cocoa Swaps, 'Ducky Fuzz' and more

  1. Cocoa Swatches

    It's not news that the beauty industry inexplicably doesn't make enough shades or sample swatches for darker-skinned women. Thanks to beauty blogger Ofunne Amaka , though, makeup buying has gotten a little easier. She's developed an app that, you know, shows what you might actually look like in certain makeup before you buy it ( it makes a difference ...  makeup is expensive .) The app also includes information about the value of products, and how long they'll last. 

    Free: iOS and Android

  2. Ducky Fuzz

    The name makes Ducky Fuzz sound cutesy, which is a little weird considering that the object of the game is to blow up pixie animals. Tap your way through different Whac-A-Mole-esque levels, earn different creatures and keep beating your high score. 

    It might leave you asking, though, where do they go in the winter?

    Free: iOS

  5. Logic Traces

    Logic Traces is sort of like Tetris if it had more logic, numbers and a definite solution. You have to fit lines within certain spaces in a puzzle, and it hooks you fast. The design itself is clean and colorful, which is no surprise coming from the makers of Logic Dots . Also, for anxious gamers or those who simply don't want to be rushed, there's no time limit.  

    Free: iOS and Android
