Roasted garlic bread, extra cheese (toasted), no tomatoes or onions but make it rain with all the sauces; I am very particular when it comes to my Subway order because I know EXACTLY what I want!
Now, imagine the same experience, but with your beauty and wellness products. The concept of custom makeup and skincare is not unheard of but yet to pick up its pace, at least in India.
If you follow popular YouTube stars such as Safiya Nygaard, Jeffree Star or even small-time YouTubers, you might have seen their *custom makeup* experience on their channels and honestly, it looks mesmerizing AF. From the inception to its execution- I can only imagine how it must feel to hold the baby product you just made!
Watch the experience below:
As the name suggests, you get a one of a kind custom-experience where every product that is made catering to your needs, be it a lipstick, nail polish, a moisturizer or even shampoo!
For example, if it’s a makeup product, say a lipstick or a nail paint, you’ll be shown a plethora of options such as multiple colour options, finishes (glitter, matte?), fragrances and essential oils to choose from. You can also choose your own component, with a unique name. You are also given a card with exact measurements of the products used so that you can get it made again.
But for products such as foundation or a facial moisturizer, you need to be physically present so that your skin type, allergies, skin tone, undertones, etc, can be analyzed by the experts and an in-house dermatologist using advanced technology so that they find you the best fit!
- One of a kind product
- You have a say in everything, from the first ingredient to the last one
- Adorable packaging
- Makes up for a great gift
- Not many options are available when it comes to the variety, such as nail polishes, blush or other forms of makeup (In India)
- Expensive (but you are paying for the experience, right?)
- Not all brands are available in all parts of the country
So, if you are looking for that one-of-a-kind experience with custom products, theses are the brands that should be on your radar!
