When grabbing your food shop it’s well known know that Aldi dupes are amazing, some people love them, some hate them. Personally I understand that it’s ripping off hard work but as someone that’s cruelty free it does give me access to some things I wouldn’t be able to purchase and from buying dupes in general the higer end ones are worth the money but these open up the market to all.
Before Christmas Aldi released a host of make up products in the Lacura range including bronzer, blush and glow palettes which I purchases and I also saw mascara but didn’t grab it.
As you can see from the packaging it is quite obvious of the high end brands these products are dupes for. So how do they compare? The packaging is similar and actually feels pretty solid and good quality with the exception of the Aloha Bronzer but I find the benefit cardboard packaging not very great, the Aloha Bronzer even comes with a brush like the benefit Hoola one but the brush in this doesn’t perform great.
I don’t have the originals of these products except for Hoola but I’ve been reaching for all three of these since I purchased them. The colours are so wearable and so much better quality than I was expecting.
I don’t own any Charlotte Tilbury products so was pleased to see this Aldi Dupe. The packaging is similar and the product is a great quality, as I said above I’ve not tried the original but the dupe is one I can’t stop reaching for. It’s so easy to wear for everyday and just warms the face and adds a gorgeous glow. I can see why people swooned so much over Charlotte Tilbury one is it’s anywhere like this Aldi Dupe.
The Aloha Bronzer was one I was really excited to try as I love hoola as and easy to use bronzer but can’t repurchase due to Benefit not being cruelty free. The product is similar in colour to the Benefit one and has amazing pigment, I was most impressed with how easily it actually blended out as well. The brush for me isn’t good and I find just adds way to much product and doesn’t blend well but using my Spectrum A04 brush it applies like a dream. You can see some of our review of Hoola here.
Lastly I grabbed the Aldi Dupe of orgasm blush, when Nars announced they were selling in China I was gutted, since going cruelty free they were my high end go to so when I saw the Aldi Dupe it went straight into my bag. Again I don’t have the original of this but the Aldi version is a gorgeous glowy peachy pink and has amazing pigmentation. It blends onto the cheeks giving a gorgeous glow to the cheeks and looks really natural.
Here you can see the swatched of the Aldi Dupes, Aloha Bronzer is a gorgeous matte neutral brown. The Lacura blush is a peachy pink shimmer and the Shape and Glow has a slight shimmer bronzer and a gorgeous highlighter. As you can see from above all the products are really pigmented and great easy to wear every day colours. I find myself reaching for all of these in my every day make up and they’ve become a part of my every day make up routine. I’ll definitely be buying more of the make up if I see it in Aldi. I do wish Aldi wouldn’t introduce these amazing dupes like the pixi glow tonic then take them away when we realised they’re amazing, if they release these Aldi dupes again I can’t recommend them enough.
