Aldi's new make up range is inspired by iconic designer brands; It includes primers, a bronzer, a blusher, a mascara and more.

Byline: James Rodger

Last year, Aldi sent shoppers into a frenzy with the release of its Jo Malone-inspired candle and diffuser range.

It was originally released as a Specialbuys collection, with limited stock available.

But the demand grew to such an extent that the budget supermarket added the products to its permanent line - throwing body and room sprays into the mix too.

Not one to miss a trick, Aldi has launched another designer-inspired line.

From November 22, shoppers will be able to buy lookalike Nars, Smashbox, Charlotte Tilbury and Benefit make-up products.

And, with prices ranging from [pounds sterling]2.99 to [pounds sterling]6.99, the items might make lovely stocking fillers come December.

Take a look at the new range below, and see if you can spot the difference between the supermarket versions, and the high end ones.

Aldi's shape and glow kit includes a bronzer and a highlight powder.

It comes in a gold case with a mirror on the inside. It looks almost identical to Charlotte Tilbury's Filmstar Bronze and Glow palette (below).

The designer version is priced at [pounds sterling]49, making Aldi's own-brand bronzer [pounds sterling]43 cheaper.

Lacura Aloha Bronzer, [pounds sterling]5.99

This Aloha bronzer comes in a little pink box, with a brush and a mirror included.

It's the perfect size to pop into your handbag, and will double up as a compact mirror too.

The packaging is very similar to one of Benefit's best-selling products, the Hoola bronzer.

Benefit's bronzer also comes with its own brush and a compact mirror - as well as a [pounds sterling]25 price tag.

Make-up fans on a budget can stay pretty in pink, thanks to this coral blusher in the colour Climax.

It looks very similar to one of the most hyped about blushers in the make-up industry, Orgasm by Nars.

Priced at [pounds sterling]24, Nars describes its best-selling product as "the ultimate authority in blush".

This oil-free formula promises to smoothen out your skin and fill in your pores, to ensure a better base for your foundation.

Priced at [pounds sterling]5.99, it looks very similar to the Photo Finish primer from Smashbox.

Smashbox's primer costs [pounds sterling]23, making Aldi's offering [pounds sterling]17 cheaper.

Lacura Too Legit Mascara, [pounds sterling]5.99

Need a new mascara?

Aldi's offering comes in a metallic purple tube. The wand is slightly angled, making it easier to coat all of your lashes.

Meanwhile, Benefit's They're Real! Mascara comes in similar looking packaging but it's [pounds sterling]15 more expensive, at [pounds sterling]21.50.
