Clinique Makeup Brush Cleanser Review


Clinique Makeup Brush Cleanser ($13) Thoroughly cleanses brushes, removing makeup residue build-up. Keeps brush hairs in optimal condition. Monthly cleansing is recommended to ensure the highest level of hygiene, help brushes last longer.

My Thoughts:

I have been using the Clinique Makeup Brush Cleanser for years. Why? Because the bottle is huge and always lasts me at least a year. For $13 you get an awesome brush cleanser. Not only is the bottle huge (it’s 8 oz), it also does a wonderful job doing quick cleaning of brushes in between washings. I love that it’s a spray bottle. You won’t have to worry about spilling or using too much. You’ll definitely get your money’s worth. The brush cleanser has never caused any breakouts (that I know of) and it leaves my brushes feeling soft and not dried out. There is no funky smell, and it’s very gentle.  I highly recommend Clinique’s Makeup Brush Cleanser. No matter how many different brush cleansers I try, I find myself always coming back to Clinique’s.


Foundation Brush Review


It is very important to pick a good foundation brush, because it is the key to a flawless face. Foundation brushes should be flat, firm, and made of synthetic bristles. I feel the 2 best foundation brushes are Lancome Foundation Brush #2 and Chanel Foundation Brush #16. Both provide a natural, flawless, streak less application. Both these brushes are very sturdy, and the bristles can handle a good washing.

Even though these brushes are on the pricey side, they are a good investment. You will not have to buy another foundation brush for years. By years, I mean 20. The best way to buy these brushes is to buy them in a set instead of individually.

Lancome Holiday Travel Brush Set–Face costs $55 (valued at $125). The foundation brush alone is valued at $33. So you will be getting an additional 3 brushes for $22. The set includes:

  • Powder Brush #1 (valued at $45)
  • Highlighting Brush #3 (valued at $26.50)
  • Foundation Brush #2 (valued at $33)
  • Concealer Brush #8 (valued at $25)

Chanel Professional Makeup Brush Set costs $120. The foundation brush is worth $40. So you will be getting 3 brushes for $80. The set includes:

  • Shadow/linear Brush #4 (valued at $27)
  • Eyeshadow #2 (valued at $29)
  • Foundation #16 (valued at $40)
  • Blush #7 (valued at $46)

Both the Lancome and Chanel foundation brushes work equally well. I personally chose Lancome, because I am not going to shell out extra money for the “Chanel” logo.
