Speed Review: Dirty Works Get Glowing Shimmer Puff

I'm not normally into talcs and powders with my favourite formula being oils but when the press release for this pretty puff from Dirty Works landed in my inbox, my attention was captured.
The packaging is perfect, unashamedly girlie and simply screaming out for a vintage style dressing table. When I removed the puff from the cardboard tub, I was surprised at the lack of powder underneath- it turns out that the shimmer is ingrained within the puff itself. Pretty clever as it certainly helps to contain any mess. I really enjoyed the glamourous old-style ritual of applying the powder with the puff and loved the delicate, feminine scent. I had originally imagined the powder to be pale and irridiscent so I was surprised that it's gold and very glittery- definitely best kept for showing off a deep summer tan or for christmas party season. Personally, it verges a little too far on the glittery side for me but it would make a cute gift for a young teen. I didn't find the effects particularly long-lasting, even when I applied on top of thoroughly moisturised skin but for £5.99, you can't go wrong.
