If there’s one thing my readers should know about me, it’s that I’m brutally honest.

Last month, I ordered the Slays For Days Palette from Swiitch Beauty. If you don’t know, Swiitch Beauty was founded by Rabia Ghoor. She is a South African entrepreneur who left high school in Grade 10 to persue a career in the beauty industry with her own startup named Swiitch Beauty. I love the fact that she is so young and started her own business. More power to you girl!
Swiitch Beauty offers a selection of products which you can find here and I have to say that the selection is quite impressive. I opted for the Slays For Days Palette which offers 35 intensely pigmented, buttery, warm toned shadows. It retails for R350 and I happened to get mine with free shipping.
First off, when the package arrived it was so securely wrapped which meant so much to me because it ensured that the palette didn’t arrive broken and that all the shadows were in tact when they came to me. The packaging of the box is absolutely stunning, with rose gold lettering on the front of the box. Another important note is that this palette is cruelty free. A while ago, Love, Kaylyn wrote a blog post with all the details which you can find here I absolutely love her blog and her aesthetic is to die for!
A question that seems to be on everyone’s lips is where exactly Swiitch Beauty’s products are manufactured. I personally have no idea, but there has been some talk about people spotting the products without the brand logo from China. I personally do not mind, as long as they are cruelty free and no animals are harmed in the process!
One thing I have to say is that I love the variety of colours in the palette. I love warm tones and I am contemplating purchasing the Unicorn Sauce palette. However, during my tutorial (if you watched the YouTube video above), I complained about the smell of the packaging. This to me was a bit of a problem, as the smell was so strong it gave me a headache.
I don’t know how to pin down the scent but it was obviously so potent that it left me with a wofting headache. I’m going to try to leave it out of it’s packaging so that the scent disappears though.
With regards to swatches, some of the shades did not swatch nicely but on my eye they blended really well and the shimmer shades were very intense even without using a make-up applicator brush.
In my video, I spoke about the correspondence and how quickly the palette arrived so if you want more information on that then please watch the video.
This is the finished look I created with the palette which I am extremely pleased with:
I did recreate this look in the video so please go and watch it to see how I created this look.
Overall, I’d rate this palette an 8/10 just because I didn’t like the fact that the palette left me with a headache and I do feel that the price is a bit expensive so I don’t know if I agree with the price. In terms of pigmentation and blending I loved this palette so much! Would you like one of these palettes? I’m thinking of doing a giveaway!
