Shadow Switch Dry Brush Cleaner

Calling all makeup lovers, you’ll want to get your hands on this cool beauty tool after reading my post. OK now that I have set the bench mark, lets get straight in to it. So beauty essentials has launched an amazing new beauty tool called Shadow Switch dry brush cleaner. And I’ve been lucky enough to test it out before beauty essentials launch in Sephora, eeek.




What’s Shadow Switch

So Shadow Switch is a dry brush cleaner tool that enables us beauty lovers to switch between different colours and shades using the same brush. OK let’s put that into perspective, we all lead busy lifestyles and I’m always looking for products that are quick and easy to use. Firstly using Shadow Switch means that you don’t have to use multiple brushes, and secondly you don’t have to wash out your brushes after every makeup application.

How does it work

So I put it to the test by firstly applying my contour, once I finished I just got my brush and rotated over the black sponge until the colour disappeared, I then used the same brush to apply my highlighter. There was absolutely no transfer of colours and with such a busy lifestyle it’s ideal for me because it made my makeup application quicker.

I have to admit when I tested Shadow Switch, I was pretty impressed. It’s one of those products that I didn’t realise I needed until I used it. Talk about tapping into our hidden needs.

Final Thoughts

After using Shadow Switch, I would say that there’s 3 main benefits;

  • You can use the same brush to apply different colours and shades.
  • You don’t have to wash your makeup brushes after every colour application
  • It’s quick and easy to use

The great thing about Shadow Switch is that it’s flexible, you can use it to dry clean your makeup brushes for most makeup applications. Of course this means that the sponge will need to be washed out every so often, which can be easily done by washing it under warm water and fragrance free soap. Just let it dry overnight before using it again.

I loved using Shadow Switch and think it’s a great beauty tool. It will be available to buy from Sephora online in the UK from November 2016.
