You told us the first beauty product you'd buy if you won the Euromillions

What would you splash out on?

WE’VE ALL DONE it, or perhaps, are currently doing it. There’s nothing more enjoyably than passively doing your job while actively imagining what you’d buy if you won the Euromillions.


After siphoning some of to charity and buying a hosue for myself (hypothetical, of course, as I have yet to win the lottery and will probably never own a gaff), my mind turns to the material – specifically, beauty products and tools.

While I’m all for investing in key pieces, I’m also someone who likes their money to go further. Essence is a budget beauty brand that takes up most of my makeup bag, and anything rarely costs more than a fiver. What’s not to love?

However, that’s not to say I don’t dream of buying every single product from the likes of Drunk Elephant – their Glycolic Night Serum will set you back £76. If you need me I’ll be crying about capitalism.


So, what would your first big beauty buy be? Here’s what DailyEdge.ie readers told me …

One of those ridiculous Christian Louboutin nail varnishes, just for the LOLs.”

The Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation, some YSL lipstick and Tarte Shape Tape concealer.”

That’s a fairly reasonable shopping basket, if you ask me.

La Mer.”

Probably the most well-known bougie beauty brand – the eye cream is highly rated. At €180, it would want to be.
