There's a new selfie app in town. It's called Meitu, and it's all about turning your profile photos into over-the-top anime cels.

On the surface, Meitu is all about smoothing your skin and making your hair look silky, brightening the dark circles under your eyes and making you look a little less haggard. But that's a facade for the app's real purpose, which is to collect your data to sell to advertisers.

Last week, a Chinese photo-editing app called Meitu blessed the world with its "Hand-Drawn" feature, which allows users to transform anyone they'd like into a soft, rosy-cheeked sweetie. It's the perfect tool to undermine your worst enemies, turning them into soft puddles of cuteness, or elevate your idols to a level of beauty previously unknown to mankind.
