The eagerly-anticipated Cosmetics à la Carte pop-up makeup studio has launched at the Knightsbridge clinic of eminent cosmetic Doctor Rita Rakus.  Clients of the luxurious Knightsbridge clinic, a stone’s throw away from super shopping destination Harrods, can treat themselves to a makeup consultation, custom-blended foundation or Dr Rakus’ own collection of lip products.

Known as “The London Lip Queen,” Dr Rakus has over 15 years of aesthetic experience, and provides the highest levels of expertise in non-surgical rejuvenation.  The  Lip Queen’s many skills includes the expert reduction of wrinkles and lip enhancement using injectables.

“I have worked with so many women over the years to get exactly what they want from their lip treatment and it’s a pleasure to be known as The London Lip Queen.  The lips really are the heart of the face and give women their confidence to feel young and sexy.”

Dr Rakus’ capsule collection of lip products has been developed by Cosmetics à la Carte specifically for the Doctor with her clients in mind.

“The Lip Primer is perfect to help fill in the fine lines on the lips to provide a nice plumper base for colour, and it also prevents lipstick bleeds and feathering.  A slick of the Candy Lipstain designed by Dannii Minogue gives a shine and SPF protection to help prevent damage to the delicate skin from UV.”

“Classic red lipstick never goes out of fashion. I know my clients are pleased with their look when they feel confident enough to wear a bright bold colour such as ‘Dr Rita.’ I feel so pleased to see my clients leave the clinic happy and smiling, and what better way to accentuate this than with a gorgeous lip colour?” says Dr Rakus.

Plump and Prime – £18.00, smoothes fine lines, adds volume, helps lip colour stay in place for longer and helps prevent ‘feathering.’  Built in moisturisers and peptides makes it a daily skincare treat for lips.  “Maxi-Lip™’”peptides boost collagen synthesis and help moisturise lips, making them firmer, smoother and better defined.  Beeswax forms a flexible, waterproof cushion, while Vitamin E keeps lips in tip top condition.  Kaolin powders create a neutral, soothing canvas so lipstick stays put and colour true.

“Dr Rita” Lipstick – £18.00, the equivalent of the LBD (little black dress), every woman should have a red lipstick in her makeup bag.  Dr Rita is a fabulous scarlet shade in a perfect velvet formula, which gives a cushion of moisturizing, rich, lush pigment for comfort and long lasting wear in a single sweep application.

“Candy” Lip stain – £18.00, Candy is an infinitely wearable, glossy, pretty pink lip stain designed by Dannii Minogue.  With SPF, it will protect lips from UV rays and the environment.
