Once an unlikely source of beauty inspiration, the supermarket aisles are fast becoming a go-to destination to stock up on hardworking skincare and make-up.
Here's one to add to your shopping list this week: Aldi has just launched a new sun-drenched make-up range, Summer Beauty, featuring a Vitamin Primer, Microfilling Eyebrow Pen, Clear Brow Gel and Translucent Setting Powder, to launch later this month.
What is the new Aldi Lacura Summer range all about?
The new Lacura range speaks to to the latest craze for natural no-make-up make-up–think natural-looking skin, fluffy eyebrows and a lit-from-within glow; a trend that's racked up 564.1M views on TikTok (and counting) thanks to early adopters like Zoë Kravitz, Kendall Jenner and glazed donut OG, Hailey Bieber.
As an advocate of soft make-up come summer, I put all five of the new formulas through their paces to see if they can compete with their luxury counterparts.
What happened when I tried the new Summer Beauty range?
There are 5 products in the range which I used to create a complete no make-up make-up look:
Lacura Vitamin Primer, £5.99
Enriched with a host of skin-loving ingredients– nourishing vitamin C, B, E and shea butter, to name a few– this primer gave my tired skin an instant boost and left it with a glow-y sheen before I applied my make-up.
Lacura CC+ Cream 50, £3.99
A firm favourite among Lacura fans, this CC+ cream is back by popular demand. The reason for the hype? A long list of talents, including concealing blemishes, hydrating your skin and providing UVA/UVB protection with factor 50–all in all making it a winner for summer skin.
In a CC cream, I always look for a lightweight but long-lasting finish. And for £3.99, I was really impressed with this formula. Though it didn't feel as glow-enhancing as some of my other favourites (like the Rare Beauty Tinted Moisturiser, for instance), it did minimise the shadows under my eyes whilst still feeling hydrating on my ever dehydrated complexion.
Lacura Microfilling Eyebrow Pen, £2.99
Available in four shades, this clever micro tip helped me create ultra fine, but fluffy brows with ease lending the look of pro micro blading but for less than your morning cappuccino. Win.
Lacura Clear Brow Gel, £2.99
I use a clear brow gel pretty much daily to keep my unruly brows in check. Standard gels will set you back around £20, and I have to say this might even be as good as some of the more luxury gels.
The brow gel kept my brows in check for hours; it didn't leave any residue on the brows and they didn't lose their shape after a day in the office.
Lacura Translucent Setting Powder, £4.99
I'm a big fan of the OG translucent setting powder but for £30 it ain't cheap. This formula, albeit not quite on the superstar status of the original, did help keep my make-up from creasing on a particularly warm day.
The Summer Beauty is available to buy from 28th July, in-store and online.
