|Putting Aldi's make up through its paces|
Those of you who read my blog will know that as much as I enjoy buying sparkly baubles and all things glam I do have a fairly well developed thrifty side which has largely been honed by being self employed and often not knowing where the next pay cheque will come from (for posts on how I save money at BB Towers takes a look here)I'm not a value brand snob in any sense and my make up bag positively heaves with inexpensive booty from the likes of Barry M and Beauty UK but I have to admit Ive never really ventured into the world of Supermarket make up.
All this changed recently when I found myself drawn to the "Lacura" range of make up in the new Aldi store which has opened up in West Kirby.
I'm not sure if it was the rather lovely packaging (which looks anything but budget) but I decided to chuck a concealer pen and a powder compact into my basket and give them a whirl.
Here's a quick vlog about what I thought of the quality and performance of the make up.

And for those of you who can't view videos here is the photo version.
|The Lacura Concealer Pen by Aldi|
|A great little product for skin brightening.|
Its a light to medium coverage so perfect for some skin brightening and for under your eyes. I wouldn't use this if I was looking particularly tired or had a big spot but for a general concealer it was really rather good.
|Light to medium coverage so no good for skin emergency's but performs well as a general concealer|
|Impressive results for under a fiver!|
|The Lacura Powder Compact-a rather expensive looking item for the price of a cup of coffee|
|The compact has a mirror and sponge inside|
|A nice finish which isn't"talcy"|
|Perfect to keep in your drawer at work or in the car for when you need to powder your nose.|
Strangely I was telling my friend Lena about this the other day (I know I'm a riveting companion aren't I) and she confessed that her favourite perfume was by Aldi, I had a sniff and it was indeed yummy. So need a make up fix or run out of perfume and its ages until payday-head to Aldi, it doesn't just sell cheese and pate!
