Product Review: MAC Brush Cleanser

At a Glance:
Price: RM39 / US$11
Weight: 235ml / 7.9 US Fl. Oz.
Made in: Canada
Ingredients: N/A

Product Description:

This one product will clean, disinfect and condition the brush fibers so that brushes will last longer. It is convenient to use and is specifically designed to extend the life of high quality brushes. Brush Cleanser leaves your brushes smelling fresh and clean, and helps shorten their drying time.

Actual Product Pic:

Haha, ok, i realise that you can't see the actual product in the bottle, so here's another alternate view! :D

Texture & Scent:
This brush cleanser is very runny (just like water)! It smells like nail polish remover if you take a wiff straight out from the bottle, but it smelly remarkably different on your cleansed brushes! :D


This brush cleanser comes in a flip top squeezable bottle.

I personally HATE the cap because it leaks product like crazy everytime you dispense some!! IMHO a tapered tip ala eye drops / contact lens solution would be a better design!

Time Test:
It takes under a minute to clean my small eye / lip brushes and slightly longer for the bigger face brushes.

Price & Availability:
This product is priced at RM39 / US$11, which i think is alright, though i tend to go through the bottles quickly!! :S

I clean my eye / lip brushes after every use, and my face brushes once a week. I know some people also spritz some of this on their eye shadow brushes and clean off any eyeshadow residue on a piece of tissue paper between applications.

I'll show you a simple guide on cleaning your brushes with this product. It's really easy!! These are my dirty eye brushes:

If there's some residue left on the tissue, repeat the steps above again until the swipe on the tissue runs clear! :)

My $0.02:
This brush cleanser is so easy to use!! It gives me a peace of mind cuz it disinfects the brushes as well! I cannot imagine brushing all those germs / bacteria all over my face every time i apply make up! Yuck!! :S The price is alright, though i have no idea why i go through the bottles so quickly as i only use a small amount every time! :S

In a Nutshell:

An idiot-proof brush cleanser that cleanses, disinfects and scent your brushes perfectly! :)

Likes: Easy to use!!, Cleanses, disinfects and scents brushes in one easy step!
Gripes: The lousy dispenser
Repurchase: Yes!

5 Stars ! Holy Grail Stuff!!

  1. Oh hey that's a kaya container :p

    I like this one, albeit it being a tad expensive compared to Elianto's brush cleaner. Does the job, dries the bristles quickly but doesn't damage 'em. Good stuff :)

  2. Hahaha, you have such keen eyes!! yes, it's ye olde kaya container! lol!

    Yeah, i love how effective this brush cleanser is! :D

  3. aiyak~ i didn't buy when i went to MAC (finally) just now to get the long awaited MAC187 :P

    so it's only rm39 aye? Good. Might try it next time.

    I usually wash my brushes with Tsubaki and condition them. They all smell like Tsubaki now! LOL

  4. Congrats on acquiring your new toy Plue! hehe!

    I used to wash my brushes with shampoo too, until i bought the MAC cleanser! :D

  5. You have many brushes! Perhaps that's why the stuff depletes so fast even though you don't use much each time. Muahahaha!

    Ok, jokes aside. I am amazed by your collection, now that you feature them. It's a stand alone store! =) WOW!

  6. hmmm... you may be right though!! those damn face brushes do suck up darn alot of product! haha!!

    oh nooooo... it's a looooong way from being a store!! *hopes the hubs didn't hear you! lol!! XD* like most MAC girls there's always room for more! heeee! :D
