Haha, i like!

Changed Haircut? Swapped Glasses for Contacts? No Problem!

Grow or shave off beard and mustaches, use makeup or dye you hair, wear or remove glasses or contact lenses - Blink! will let you in to your PC no matter what.

BUT in their documentation....

When you register the face, or log in, keep a calm expression on the face because emotional face expressions (such as laughter, closed eyes or hair covering the face) can make it rather difficult for the software to recognize your face and can even make it impossible.

What's more, recognition can be hindered by the light reflected from the glasses. Therefore we recommend you to take off glasses when your register the face or log in.

Finally, changes in the appearance can influence the recognition performance. If you think your look has changed a lot, you need to register your face again.

So getting punched in the face will cause issues :) I think software like this just marks points on the face hence make-up etc doesn't matter.

Next would be eye recognition :) they say are as unique as finger prints. However, beware of the finger print reader software for HPs. Having worked for the NHS we disabled them. Having trialled one on my laptop it worked for a month or so then suddenly stopped and was no way to log in.
