Lidl Beauty Products
I feel like the only person in the world who wasn’t aware of the Lidl beauty products
. (I know, where have I been?!) I’m all up for beauty on a budget
, though, especially if the product performs just as well as any other brand! It’s a win-win situation!
After a quick search on Google, I found results coming up for Lidl beauty products
– all raving about how quickly certain lines have sold out and people just can’t get enough of it Lidl’s super affordable beauty products.
The only times I go to Lidl is not to peruse the beauty aisle but to stock up chocolate biscuits and sweets for a cosy weekend in. But now I’ll definitely take more time to browse Lidl’s beauty products, especially as it’s so cheap and affordable!
5 Best Lidl Beauty Products
Cien Lipstick – £2 each
There are currently eight beautiful shades in Lidl’s Cien lipstick range and I was given three shades of these to try out and they are a pleasant surprise! From left to right, these are Light Coral, Vintage Mauve and Spicy Red.
Two out of the three Cien lipsticks I’ve got from Lidl are extremely pigmented, full coverage, provides intense colour and glides over your lips without dragging. It comes out with a subtle sheen and it doesn’t cling to dry skin. I don’t think that I’ve ever encountered a budget lipstick that is so easy to use, it’s hard to believe that it only cost £2!
In all this time of searching for the perfect red lipstick, I think I may have found it and who would’ve thought it’d be a Lidl’s brand. Spicy Red is a gorgeous shade whist Vintage Mauve is a beautiful plum that is dupe of the much raved about MAC Plumful
The only shade I’m not crazy about is Light Coral! The colour itself isn’t bad but the formula isn’t the same as the two red shades; it is a frost lipstick that comes out nude on my lips which doesn’t suit me.
Suddenly Diamonds Eau De Parfum – £3.99
I’ve got to admit, when I heard about this perfume, I wasn’t expecting great things. Only because I’ve bought cheap perfume in the past and the lingering smell can make me feel sick. HOWEVER, I go back on my word as Lidl’s Suddenly Diamonds actually smells nice. If you were to do a perfume test between this one and an expensive one, I swear you wouldn’t be able to tell the difference.
It took Lidl two years to develop this perfume so even though this is at a budget price, the groundwork has been put in to ensure this is still a nice, wearable fragrance. It lasts on your skin for up to six hours and the word on the street is that this is a dupe for Boss Orange
The fragrance notes for Lidl’s Suddenly Diamonds perfume is: Top notes of apples, mid notes orange blossom and jasmine with a subtle base of sandalwood and cinnamon.
Cien Classic Hairspray – 89p
A huge can for only 89p! I know where I’ll be buying my hair sprays from now on. At 89p, this is the ultimate bargain! As I’m not picky with hairsprays – just as long as it doesn’t give that crispy effect! – this can from Lidl will serve me well and will last a while!
If you’re a dancer or a cheerleader like my little sister, you are probably going through cans of hairspray like no tomorrow so head to nearest Lidl and stock up this!
Cien Hand Cream – £1.25
A hydrating hand cream that contains almond oil and shea butter, and you get a huge tube for the price of £1.25! A nice alternative to the big brands and it does it’s job by keeping your hands soft and moisturised. The smell is not too bad, and as pleasant as it is, I find it a tad too strong but the cream itself sinks in to skin fairly quickly and the smell fades along with it.
Cien Liftan Complete Moisturising Cream – approx £2
This offers 24 hour protection, if you can believe it. It’s a good face cream but I’m not sure about the 24 hour claim but I am someone who doesn’t drink enough water, so no matter how optimistic a product sounds, I’m not going to benefit from it until I change my ways.
Liftan Complete contains Q10 to regenerate skin cells, and caffeine which provides your skin an energy boost in the morning. The Vitamin E in the formula helps you prevent premature skin ageing while hyaluronic acid works to plump skin and minimise the appearance of wrinkles.
The jar is made of glass that’s packaged in a lovely pink and white cardboard box, and it feels like it cost more than £2. This contains parabens.
