Uberchic Beauty UberSwatchers Review

Saturday, 28 January 2017


Happy Saturday everyone!  I hope you all have something fun or relaxing to do this weekend.  I am actually off for a day of fun in Geelong with some friends of ours.  It's meant to be good weather so should be a great day.  Anyway, recently I received Uberchic Beauty's UberSwatchers to try out and share with you guys so let's take a look shall we?


In case you don't know what UberSwatchers are they are polish swatcher toppers for your polish bottles and come in two parts - a hard white top and a flexible outer wrapper.  Now why in the world would you need these?  If you are like me, you may store all of your polishes in drawers and will know the frustration of not being able to see the colours you have without pulling them out.  That is where the UberSwatchers can come in handy.  


As mentioned, the UberSwatchers come with two part - the white top and the flexible wrapper.  They arrive joined together but are simple to separate so that you can paint them with your desired colour.  Putting them back together however is a little more fiddly.  It's not difficult, but definitely fiddly.


The huge pro to these is that you can easily see what polishes are in your drawers which makes it a lot quicker to find what you are looking for.  There are a couple of cons (in my opinion) of this.  If you have a large collection you are going to be in for $$$$ to have UberSwatchers on all of your polishes (you will also be spending a lot of time swatching them all).  The other downside is that these don't actually fit on all polish bottles.  For me personally, I have no issues with seeing the bulk of the colours in my collection as the bottles are larger than the caps.  I do have troubles with rounded stamping bottles with the black caps so I was hoping that the UberSwatchers would fit nicely over them.  Sadly, this is definitely not the case.  As you can see below the UberSwatchers are way too small.




Now while I won't be rushing out to buy the UberSwatchers for my entire polish collection (I have over 2500 polishes) I do like the UberSwatchers for my gel polishes.  Gel polishes are in a black bottle which makes it impossible to see what colour is inside plus the labels on the fronts of the bottles aren't a good colour representation.  The UberSwatchers are a perfect solution for that!

The UberSwatchers are available in a variety of packs from Uberchic Beauty.

  1. Cool idea but very expensive if someone has a big polish collection :/

    1. I think they are a great idea but you are correct. It would be very expensive if you have a big collection. I do love them for my gels so I can see what the colour is actually like. So much easier

  2. I've seen a few people review these now & have to say I'm not massively impressed. They are great for gel polish like you say, however they're so expensive & the fact they don't fit all bottle shapes is a big issue for me.

    1. I agree 100% with you. I have some OCD issues so even if these UberSwatchers were free I still couldn't put them on all of my polishes because they wouldn't fit all the bottles. That would drive me mental. But they are perfect for my gels so I am happy with that :)
