Review: Shadow Switch Makeup Brush Cleaner by Beauty Essentials

I was recently sent a super cute product which I’ve been wanting to review for a while; the Shadow Switch Make-up Brush Cleaner by Beauty Essentials. Cleaning your make-up brushes is generally a very time consuming task, I usually have to give myself at least 2 hours to do mine. I’m always looking for beauty products which make my life a little bit easier, so I was very keen to try Shadow Switch.


The products description on Amazon:

  • Removes make up from your brushes quickly and effectively
  • Eliminates the need to switch brushes to use a different colour of make up powders!
  • Prevents makeup powders transferring when using the same brush
  • The quickest, most hygienic and reliable way to preserve your makeup brushes

So, I guess you’re wondering… does the product live up to it’s expectations and do as advertised? Indeed it does! Shadow Switch is very easy to use, all you need to do to clean a brush is simply open up the tin and you can take away any left over makeup on your brush by brushing it against the cleaner. It’s perfect especially if you’re applying eye makeup, such as eye shadow, as I generally use more than one colour and I don’t like it when it all gets mixed up together.


To keep your Shadow Switch clean, it will need to be washed with soap and then left to dry afterwards. Having only one product to clean and not hundreds of different brushes saves so much time. The product is not intended for cream products, as this will clog up the sponge.

I am impressed with Shadow Switch as I believe it to be a game changer, especially because it’s definitely a quick and fuss free tool for cleaning your brushes. I think it’s especially surprising because Beauty Essentials are new to the UK and this is the first product they have released here, so I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what they have in store for us in the future.

The Shadow Switch from Beauty Essentials really is a beauty essential. Shadow Switch is available on Amazon for £5.99 which in my opinion is affordable, as brush cleaners can be expensive. This is the ideal product for any of us who love our make-up products, so I would suggest giving it a try.
