Quick Change Brush Cleaner
Clean and Go!
This brush cleaner is perfect for that quick spruce up of your brushes in between a more thorough regular wash. Also great for if you're using several colours in one go. I love doing a smokey eye and it is invaluable for changing between colours without needing a different eye brush for each colour. Just spritz onto a tissue, wipe brush gently across and go, go, go! The only reason I haven't given it a full five stars is because it is fairly perfumed. I like the smell and am very fortunate that I don't have sensitive skin. However I can imagine that some people might prefer it without fragrance.
I ordered this and found that there is just too much fragrance in it. I don't want anything with fragrance anywhere near my eyes! It should be offered without the fragrance, or taken out completely.
Too busy to shampoo your brushes? Try this!
Absolutely love this brush cleaner. A time-saver and wonderful if you're too busy to keep up with shampooing brushes on a regular basis. Also makes makeup application easier and colors more true to their original tones. Before giving this product a try, I would just swipe the same brushes into the next blush, eyeshadow color, etc. Who knows how many layers of color were actually blended on, not to mention it became problematic when going from a glitter color to a matte. This product is the solution. Just spray a little onto a paper towel, wipe your brush back and forth across it until the color quits appearing on the towel, let the brush dry for 20-30 seconds, then you're ready for your next color. (This can tingle on sensitive eyes, so I'd recommend letting the brush dry even longer and more completely for those with delicate skin.) That simple and easy. Don't know how I managed without this before and now my makeup colors go on more accurately since there aren't old layers of color lurking underneath. This product deserves five stars and more. Definitely one of my favorite BE products out there and a must-have in my makeup bag.
I use this product every time I do my makeup. I don't switch colors often because I own so many brushes but I do use it to clean them between conditioning treatments. This is also a must for my collection. All you have to do it spray into a paper towel and wipe your brushes clean.
This product smells soooooooooooo good I wish they made a perfume of the smell =P
I bought this in 07 and I still have some!!! I hope they didn't change the formula or smell and if they did change the formula, I hope it's even better...will repurchase more when I'm completely out.
Easy to Use
I bought this because I don't have that many brushes and I wanted to be able to keep my colors separate. I like it a lot. I think it does a great job of pulling all of the colors out of the brush. It doesn't dry as fast as I would have liked it to, but I normally use only one or two colors during the day so I just clean them when I'm done and they're ready for next time. Must easier than shampooing them every day!
Today was my first day using this product. My first reaction was "I'm not loving the smell" It doesn't smell horrible, but personally i'm not fond of it, and your brush continues to smell like the spray after it has dried. I bought this mainly for my eye shadow application, I have the Precision brush that I use for my eyes and I like to use two to three colors. I applied the first color and then cleaned the brush, but when I went to apply the second color it still seemed that my brush was wet. I'm not sure if its just because its such a small tightly bristled brush or if I used to much of the product. Overall so far I give it three stars because it does remove the color between applications but i'm not crazy about the smell or the fact that my brush remained damp. Maybe I should just buy a separate brush for every color I have! HAHAHA.... my husband would die. :)
The best thing ever for your brushes!
Before I used this cleaner I would either clean my brushes on a dry piece of tissue or not clean them at all making multiple color shadow combos difficult to say the least. Then one day I was at a Bare Essentials store and I asked my favorite sales guy what I could use to clean my brushes that wouldn't leave them wet all day.. you know for eyeshadow color changes etc. He told me about this product and showed me how to use it. The first time I used it I was hooked! I use it to clean my brush before I put on my foundation everyday. I also use it for cleaning my eyeshadow brushes in between color changes. As an added bonus it smells awesome... I think the scent would be a fabulous perfume! :o)
I thought I would love this product, but I really don't. It seems to leave an oily residue on my brushes, making it impossible to use it for changing colors. I do however use it when I am DONE applying my makeup to keep them clean and conditioned between washings (which I do once a week). For on the spot color changes I find it easier to used use my fingertips to flick the color off the bristles.
Great for eyeshadow
I use this product most often when I'm doing a layered look in eyeshadow using multiple shades and colors, such as green/gold or green/purple. Colors should be defined and blended, not smudged and mixed. This product ensures the first color is completely off your brush before you start with the next. It works wonderfully and dries fast. Highly recommend it to anyone who uses more than one color eyeshadow at a time!
