Shadow Switch Review

I hope you’re all having a wonderful Sunday.

I few weeks ago I was kindly sent shadow switch from beauty essentials, this little pot has completely changed my makeup routine. I didn’t know how much I needed it until it arrived!

I would like to start by saying thank you to the team at Dee and Co for the opportunity. They are amazing, when they contacted me about doing a collaboration they gave me so much information about the company and the item I would be receiving.

I think every girl needs this in there makeup bag, have you ever had to stop using your favourite brush because it was dirty or needed to change to a completely different colour? Yes me too! But I’m pretty confident in saying you can achieve a smoky eye using just one brush thanks to this!
It comes in a beautiful box, inside you’ll find a tin with a black sponge. The packaging is very lightweight so it’s perfect for travelling. Let’s face it, no one wants to carry hundreds of brushes when they are going away. Up till now I have been travelling with ALOT of brushes more than I probably need, but that’s a thing of the past I can just throw this in there and clean my brushes after using them! The sponge itself has no scent which is one of the first things I checked, I have very sensitive skin proven to breakouts I try to avoid anything that’s heavily scented.

After you use the brush you simply twirl your brush and like magic it comes out clean. I put it to the test using a black shade from my urban decay palette.



As you can see the brush itself doesn’t look 100% clean. But I can guarantee there is no colour pay off if you was to swatch it. When I first heard about this I’ll admit I wasn’t expecting much from it.

One thing I did notice, some brushes will lose bristles with this. I tested over 6 brushes and it only happened with two sigma brushes. I’m not sure why, if it’s the brush itself that’s becoming old I’ve used those things nonstop for the past 4 years. This still wouldn’t stop me from using shadow switch, if I was to wash my brushes after every use you bet it would cause a hell of a lot more damage.     

You can purchase this item from amazon, it will also be coming to Sephora very soon so keep your eyes open. The best thing is it’s so affordable so anyone can pick one up, it retails at £5.99.
The packaging itself will be changing I was sent a picture of the new packaging and i LOVE it just as much. I would definitely recommend this to eyeshadow lovers.

*Disclaimer, I was sent this product in exchange for a review. This does not affect my review in any way its 100% my honest opinion.
