If you’ve not heard of the brand ‘dirty works’ before, they’re best known for their bath and body products due to their retro packaging, quirky product names and delightful scents! I’ve used their products for a couple of years now and have always been impressed with their quality and the fact they’re so affordable. With this being said, I was very excited to hear that they’re now dipping their toes into the beauty world and have released a whole makeup collection to sit alongside their skincare, bath and body products.
I was recently sent the new products to try and was totally amazed by how many items are in the range – there’s everything you can think of from palettes to brow kits, lipsticks and glosses. This is quite unheard of when a brand first launches a completely new type of product but I personally think it’s great that they’ve done such a variety as it means there’ll be something to suit most people’s needs and if you want a whole face of makeup for an affordable price, Dirty Works have got you covered!
I’m not going to review every single product individually as this post would never end if I did but I’ve popped the name of each product and the price below so you can get an idea of what’s available. I’ve also tried to show them as best as I can in the imagery – as you can see, they’re all really well packaged with a quirky retro theme just like Dirty Works other products.
So, here’s the products which are now available to buy at Sainsbury’s and online at www.dirtyworksbeauty.com.
Back to Basics Eyeshadow Palette (£8)
Smokey Eye Kit (£7)
Blush and Glow Palette (£7)
Luxe Lip Crayons (£6)
Wow Brows Eyebrow Kit (£7)
Pucker Up Nude and Coral Lip Glosses (£4 each)
Bye! Bye! Dark Circles Concealer (£5)
Hello Sunshine Bronzer (£5)
Off Duty Nail Polish Trio (£5)
As you can see, the most expensive item is only £8 and that’s for a whole eyeshadow palette with 11 shades. It also has shimmery finishes as well as mattes so it’s perfect for taking your makeup look from day to night. The same applies for the smokey eye kit and blush and glow palette – they’re all insane value for money considering you get multiple products in each of them. They’re also fab little kits to pop in your handbag as they’re so lightweight.
Some of my favourite items from the range would have to be the eyebrow kit, bronzing powder and the lipsticks and glosses. The eyebrow kit is perfect for natural looking brows as the shades are quite ashy rather than orange which helps to create a really natural looking brow. The powders are also really pigmented and the addition of the tweezers, brushes and brow gel makes it a great all in one brow kit. For £7, it’s hard to find fault! The bronzer is great too as it’s huge meaning it’s fab for swirling a big fluffy brush into and dusting all over the face to create a sun kissed glow. It’s slightly too orange toned to use as a contour powder but it’s great for adding some colour to the skin and the light reflecting particles in it add a nice glow to the skin. The lip pencils and glosses are also really pigmented, as you can see from my swatches. One light swipe is all you need for them to be fully opaque and the shades are perfect for Autumn!
Overall I’d say the Dirty Looks beauty range is amazing value for money. Not only will it look super pretty displayed on your dressing table thanks to the cute packaging but it also won’t break the bank. I’d say this is the perfect range for those of you who are maybe just getting into wearing makeup and want to experiment with different products. If you have a sister, niece or daughter who is just getting into makeup – then these would make the perfect start kit. Christmas gift, sorted.
