Editor's Review

Dirtysweet is described as a "medium bronze." It's a light-medium, golden brown with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. It had nice color payoff with a soft, smooth texture that felt a little dry and thinner compared to most of the brand's more metallic eyeshadows. It wore well for eight hours before fading. LORAC Smokey Topaz (LE, ) is darker. Tarte No Champagne, No Gain (LE, ) is darker. MAC English Gilt (LE, $21.00) is more shimmery, brighter. Tarte Dare to Be Gold (LE, ) is less shimmery, darker. Too Faced Nutmeg (LE, $16.00) is lighter. Kat Von D Nephilim (LE, ) is darker. Hourglass Exposure #3 (P, ) is cooler. MAC Natural Vigor #2 (LE, $21.00) is lighter, cooler. Hourglass Exposure #3 (P, ) is cooler. Hourglass Obscura #3 (P, ) is brighter, warmer. Giorgio Armani Cold Copper (09) (P, $38.00) is darker, cooler. Dior Golden Flower #4 (LE, ) is darker. MAC Tempting (P, $16.00) is less shimmery, darker, warmer. Urban Decay Chase (P, $18.00) is darker, warmer. Makeup Geek Bleached Blonde (P, $5.99) is less shimmery, darker, warmer.

Dirtysweet is such a wonderful lid colour for me. I have about 5 or 6 of the listed dupes and while they're all nice shadows, none of them is quite as nice on me as Dirtysweet. It's a pretty light bronzed gold shade with a glow-y finish. I know that the Naked Smoky palette wasn't very well received but it's a palette I really love using and this colour - which I love on the mobile lid with some dark liner for an easy but flattering look - makes me glad I purchased the palette.
