Last week, I was contacted by the lovely team at A la carte London for a personal make up session. As a self confessed make-up lover, I jumped at the chance as I was really intrigued by the brand, and it is always fun to experience something new. 

A la carte cosmetics is a bespoke brand  based in Knightsbridge.  Founded in 1973 by two cosmetic chemists, Lynne and Christina, who were determined to expand the range of colours and choice, that was not offered by the big cosmetic brands.  With their  new innovative products; they wanted to give women the chance to try products, in private. Before ultimately making the leap to purchase

 As a woman of colour, I am constantly frustrated by the lack of choice offered by big brands, so it was great to see that a brand was out their to help with my make up woes. As soon as I arrived at the quaint store, I was greeted by the lovely staff as well as the abundant range from the brand.  My make up artist Stephanie, was at hand to do my make up. She was lovely and really took the time to talk me through the products and give me tips.

A la carte cosmetics  are known for their ‘Bespoke Your Beauty’ service. This service allows customers to create their own foundation, lipstick, gloss, powder and shadow! I got to experience this service as I had my own foundation mixed to suit my skintone, and skin type. The good thing about this service is that if you run out , the store keeps a record of your personal foundation so you can always get a new bottle. How good is that?

I went for a subtle day time look with a brown smokey eye and bold lip. This look isn't dissimilar to what I normally do. However, this look was neater, more defined and most importantly natural looking. The foundation looked amazing, and it didn't feel heavy or cakey. I will have to play around with for a couple of weeks, but I am pretty sure I will re-purchase again.

 I'd like to thank everyone at A la carte cosmetics for allowing me to try out their products. I was also gifted with a goody-bag of make up (which will be reviewed separately).

Have you ever heard of A la carte cosmetics?
