I found this brush cleaner at Priceline one day, I was searching for something that I could use in between properly cleaning my make up brushes.
This is an alcohol spray, it does have a strong smell to it, so make sure you don't use too much of it at once. I really like to use it with my eyeshadow brushes everyday. Especially as my MAC 217 brush is very well loved, I tend to reach for it whenever I apply my eyeshadow, and if you start to use a couple of colours, they end up becoming muddy. I simply take a tissue, spray once or twice onto the tissue, and swirl my brush around. You will see the make up coming off onto the tissue. Depending on how dirty your brush was (mine had a few days worth of eyeshadow in it) you may need to do it again on a clean area of tissue. You will know when the brush is clean as you won't get any residual make up on the tissue.
The great thing with this brush cleaner is the fact that your brush is dry practically straight away, so you can continue applying your make up, without having to wait overnight for your brushes to dry.
There are a few brands on the market that sell a brush cleaner spray, this one was from Priceline. They sell three different types now, they are:
- Artiste Brush Cleaner 100ml $14 (the one I have)
- Manicare Cosmetic Brush Cleaner 100ml $14.99
- Models Prefer Brush Cleaner 125ml $12.99
They would all do the same thing, I would try out the Models Prefer one for $12.99 as you get more in the bottle!
