Has anyone tried Lacura makeup at Aldi? Just interested in what it's like.

Its not bad ive tried the foundation which is v good quality for its price and the reddy coloured lipstick is fab.

Apparently the concealers are v good similar to a top brand.

The moisturisers are good too,ive not tried eye shadow or mascara from there though.

Yes, it's very good. I have tried the foundation, the eye shadow and the mascara. You really can't tell the difference between them and the dearer stuff.

I've had lipstick, mascara, nail colour and eye shadow.

Don't bother with the mascara, it's crap.

Lipstick and nail colour absolutely fine, actually pretty good.

Eye shadow one of the best I've ever owned.

I don't use the moisturisers but have a hand cream with urea in it which is excellent (that might have been one of their special purchases though).

Yes - I have two of the powder compacts - darker for summer and lighter for winter. They are lovely and the compacts are excellent quality. I also like their moisturiser and their hairspray is as good as Elnett but a fraction of the cost.

I was lookig at the foundation in the translucent shade as i am pale. Just wanted some thoughts etc. Can't argue with the prices that's for sure.

I have the concealer, it's very good actually.

yes - the concealer is marvo, not as thick as Touche Eclat but that's good as i find TE a bit paste-like.

Nail polishes last forever.

Eye cream better than my Estee Lauder one, I've used for the past few years.

Lipstick good but taste waxy, for me.

Their Lacura SPF 50 sun cream is excellent.....makes my skin glow!

The mascara isn't very good.

concealer and powder are both great (although i don't agree that the concealer matches up to it's pricier counterpart) as are the face and body moisturisers.

the powder is fantastic, lasts for ages and comes in a nice silver compact with mirror, the lipgloss is also great

I like the eyeshadow.

After the hype I bought the concealer for a friend who was running out of her YSL. She reported back that it was too pale, a bit thick and the applicator tip fell off after a few days. So I'm not going to bother. I've bought the face suncream in factor 50 - but not used yet - great price though and figured you can't go wrong with suncream.

I've been using the moisturisers for about a year, they seem really good. I also have the concealer which is grand. The mascara tends to melt all over my face though...
