Recreate Discontinued Makeup

It’s heart-breaking to find a colour you love, only to find out it’s been discontinued. But fear not, we can help! Simply send a sample of your favourite to our lab and our colour expert will analyse it. We start from stratch get a match in colour and texture that’s as close as possible to the original. If your discontinued colour is a close match to an existing colour in our range, we will recommend that instead.

What products can you match?

We can match lipstick, gloss, eyeshadow, blusher, bronzer, and of course foundation. We cannot match pencils. 

How much does it cost?

Bespoke development is £260 comprising £100 non-refundable deposit for initial analysis and up to 2 rounds of sampling until we have found the right option, then £160 for one full-sized finished product. Any future repeats of your unique formula are £60.

How long does it take?

The process of analysis and sampling takes approximately 3-4 weeks, longer if feedback is delayed. Once agreed, your unique formula is created and delivered within approximately 48 hours (longer for overseas).

How can I start the process?

Send a sample of your original to our lab at 102 Avro House, Havelock Terrace, London SW8 4AS (please used a signed and tracked service to ensure it reaches us). Your original sample will be returned with your new product, but we will need to use some of the product in the matching process. Please note we cannot recreate a product using a formula, product name or photograph.

How is this different from Bespoke Blending?

Bespoke Blending takes two or more existing colours from our range and mixes them. This creates beautiful results, but does not always produce the most accurate match to an existing colour. Recreating Makeup on the other hand starts from scratch in our lab with individual ingredients, so it can be a lot more precise in both shade and feel.
