Makeup Brush Color Removal Sponge | Sephora Color Switch Dupe!?




I had my eye on Sephora's Colour Switch makeup brush cleaner by Vera Moda ($23.00 CAD), but I knew there had to be a cheaper dupe. I checked on Amazon and eBay and there were plenty to be found. I went with one that I found on Amazon for only a few bucks. 👍




If you are not familiar with this product, it's a dry makeup remover sponge that allows you to switch between colours with the same makeup brush. By swiping your brush across the sponge it removes the colour from the brush allowing you to use the same brush dipped into a whole new colour.




The sponge is basically like a rough scouring pad and there are plenty of DIY's if you want to make your own. It's really a simple concept, just wish I had invented it! 💲💲💲 hehe

I didn't see the point in doing a DIY as I paid only about $5 and it included the handy tin.

Mine looks just like Sephora's Colour Switch by Vera Moda. Although I don't own that one, I've seen it in person and it's essentially the same thing.


It works like a charm in between proper brush cleanings and it doesn't damage your brushes. Here, I'm cleaning my Real Techniques blush brush so you can see that it fits brushes both large and small.


Once it gets dirty on the side you are using just flip it over to the other side. Once both sides have been used you can give it a good cleanse with some gentle cleanser and water. I just clean mine when I deep clean my makeup brushes. It cleans up really quickly and easily.


In the photo above I have shown the before and after results after using the cleansing sponge on an eyeshadow brush that had been used. As you can see, it removed most of the colour from the brush but not all of it.

Final Verdict:
I find that this product really comes in handy and I use it daily. I think any makeup enthusiast would appreciate having this in their collection.

Amazon Brush Cleaner price $6 USD
VS.
Color Switch by Vera Mona is $23.00 CAD

  3. Interesting invention! I just use a quick spritz of brush cleaner solution if I want to re-use that brush, but this would be a much drier alternative. Always handy to find a cheaper dupe too!

  8. I don't have this, becuase I think the original price is ridiculous, I rather use my cheap brush spray cleanser, haha. On the other hand buying some dupe from ebay doesn't sound that bad. xx

  9. I didn't even know these existed Amy so thanks a bunch for the information - some days my bench is littered with so many used brushes, and then it takes a while to clean them at night, so something like this is an absolute bonus. How cheeky is that eBay seller for jacking up the price - well done on paying what you did! xxx

    1. I think you would enjoy this product! Silly for the seller to mark the price up so high, they're surely not going to sell anymore! lol xo
