Kristina says:

"I’ve been using Cosmetics A La Carte ever since I first tried out their bespoke cruelty-free skincare & makeup products. Luxurious packaging, highest quality ingredients & fantastic colour selection. Best of all that most of their products are vegan and formulated & produced in London. I’ve tried many different brands but this remains my firm favourite."
