Summer Colour Burst Trend with Cosmetics a la Carte!

Hey beauties, I will be posting a look with these awesome creamy eyeshadows soon. But for now I just want to quickly share a few of the Cosmetics a la Carte beauty products I have found that are fantastic for this summer trend: the colour pop! Cosmetics a la Carte has an array of popping, bright colours for eyes, lips and cheeks! These four particularly stood out to me. The Outliner, Eyeliner & Shadow in Blazon [a shimmery warm red] and Dragonfly [very much on trend shimmery emerald green]. The texture of them is very creamy, so they do move and they are perfect for that lived in grungy/smudgy look. 

And for lips I really like the Matte Velvet Lipstick in Tomato [a true tomato red], I'm not sure why but I love the name! I'm a huge fan of Cosmetics a la Carte lipsticks, they are beautifully pigmented, last well and don't feel dry on the lips. The Neon Lip Lacquer in Bubblegum is a very sheer pink with light shimmer, I actually thought it would be pigmented and quite bright, but it's not literally a neon although it does look pretty pink in the tube. But if you are scared of brights and like a touch of sheer colour than you'll like these, the Neon comes in three other shades. These lip-glosses also come in Shimmer and Cream, which are more pigmentation.



  1. Love your blog! What camera do you use?

    1. Hey Sondra,
      thank you lovely! The camera I use is actually giving me headache lately, it has something wrong with the flash, so sometimes I have to take like 20 images to choose a few good ones, and I'm not always happy with the colours etc. I do need a more professional camera, but for now the tiny Sony Cyber-shot will do. :)

  2. OMG! So many Lip colors! I can't wait to see your review of the lipsticks!
