Yep, you totes can dry clean your makeup brushes – your eyes hadow brushes at least. If you're familiar with the Color Switch by Vera Mona, you know what I mean. If you're all dry clean my brushes – wha??, then take a look at the super-quick video clip below.

This is the brand new Sephora Color Switch by Vera Mona ($23 at sephora.ca and $18 USd at sephora.com), which consists of an airy firm plastic sponge in a tin. That's it. When you're applying eye shadow and you can't be bothered to switch brushes, you need this Color Switch thingie. As per the video below, just swipe the brush bristles against the surface of the sponge, and whoa – it removes the powder colour so you can dip the same brush into another shade right away. Genius.
If you want a format different from this sponge-in-a-tin set-up, Color Switch by Vera Mona offers lots of options you'll want to check out.
Of course this doesn't replace actually washing makeup brushes properly with soap or shampoo regularly – the sponge won't remove the bacteria and oil (ick) it picks up when it comes into contact with skin.
Is this not one of the coolest tools you've ever seen? Do you already have a Sephora Color Switch? Or are you already familiar with Color Switch by Vera Mona? Or maybe you have the Sigma Beauty brush-cleaning mat?
