Makeup is one of the things we really love in life! If we are not beauty experts or makeup experts, we love to buy makeup and try new trends. We love how you can spend hours just playing around with makeup, and how you can never have enough! So when a few months ago Beauty Essentials sent us an email to ask us if we wanted to try their new product, the Shadow Switch, we obviously said yes! Well in fact Kirsty said yes, as she is the one of us that was the most into makeup at the time.
Beauty Essentials’ Shadow Switch
The product I was kindly sent was their new Shadow Switch, which is a revolutionary beauty tool to dry clean your makeup brushes. When I read this description I was real excited about this! First of all because I’m the laziest person when it comes to cleaning brushes. It takes time, it’s inconvenient and cool gadgets are usually expensive and take up a lot of room. So this was just the perfect tool to add in my makeup collection!
As you can see the Shadow Switch is small and handy. It comes in a square box that I still use and the tool itself is a round tin with a foam pad inside. What I like about this is that it’s flat and the perfect size. You can clean all your brushes in it, from the small eyeshadow brushes to your powder brushes. Another detail that makes this product perfect is that it’s only £5.99. Yes you read that right: £5.99. Now I have your full attention, keep reading to see how this amazing tool works.
How to use it
Using this is as simple as it looks! You just need to swirl your brushes on the foam pad for a few second and voilà! Your brushes are clean. Even if you have to do one brush at a time, it is the quickest way to clean your brushes. On the plus side your brushes stay dry. So if like me you don’t have a lot of brushes and basically only have one brush for applying your eyeshadow it is perfect because you can apply one colour, clean your brush and use it straight away for your second colour.
It’s also super handy when you are travelling. You don’t need to worry about your wet brushes at the bottom of your makeup bag. Because your brushes won’t ever get wet anymore!
Take care of your Shadow Switch
The only thing you will still have to wet is your Shadow Switch. When your Shadow Switch is a bit dirty you need to clean it with some warm water and fragrance free soap. Then leave until it is totally dry. You will also have to replace the foam pad after a while and as it will wear off. However to make your pad last longer you can turn it over before washing it, that way you won’t just wear off one side. But as I said, the product only costs £5.99 so I think we can’t complain…
As you may have gathered, I’m totally impressed and fond of this tool! I really recommend it to anyone that uses makeup brushes. It’s handy, easy to use, cheap and it works. I’ve got nothing to add besides: Why haven’t you bought yours yet? I can guarantee you it will become your best friend! You can buy it from Amazon right here. This product would also be the perfect present for a friend!
