Traveling in New York for Fashion Week just got a whole lot more fun. Thanks to Glamour and Conde Nast, 50 cabs will be donning technology that allows its passengers to purchase luxury beauty products from the taxi television screens. Just download an app and swipe your smart phone over a tag to purchase.

The screens will also display exclusive programming from Glamour with makeup demonstrations by Lancome and Yves Saint Laurent makeup artists.

Starting this Thursday, the cabs will congregate in the fashion week hot spots – Lincoln Center and the Meatpacking District to provide free rides throughout the city.

Only downside we can see is you don’t have the option to shut off the screens. Is convenient lipstick shopping worth the extra noise or will your Louboutin’s be your new means of transportation?
