I think one of the most enjoyable thing for a makeup enthusiast apart from collecting the smorgasbord of makeup is to collect all kinds of makeup brushes. Whether I know what it does or doesn’t hey so and so talked about and now I need one too (sounds familiar). And once we have our sizable collection in hand and feel all warm and fuzzy inside after we have tried each and every one of them. What joy!! But what is this…..tried each and everyone…..that means now I have to……clean them ALL???!!!! ARGH!!! Someone kill me….kill me now!
|Look at the amount of ish that came out of my contour brush 😛 And I washed it recently|
I have seen a vlogger who was supposed to be an ex-MAC makeup artist saying that she just dips the brushes into the bottle and swirls it around. I found this method very unhygienic….the dirt will remain in the bottle right….Any hoo being at a loss about how to use this best I Googled (nothing beats that right) I came across a few suggestions and tried it out. My stippling brush was in a major need of some good cleaning. I poured a 2-3 drops on the brush and then taking a paper towel I wiped the bristles in one direction.Honestly I was stumped at the result.
|Gonna demo these two brushes for you. One is a smudger from Health N Glow and the other is a liner brush that you get with Maybelline Gel Liner|
The product just kept coming out and with each wipe I could make out the white color of the bristles. I mean it did not even take 5 minutes and I could tell that my brush was clean. Plus within a few minutes more it was dry!!! GADZOOKS!!! 15 minutes top and I’m good to go :O For something that takes me a good 15-20 minutes to do and on top of that an entire day of wait time I was all set in 15. Seeing the results I bought out all my brushes that I have been using frequently and gave them a good cleaning.
|Wet the brush and rubbed it on a paper towel|
I tried it 2 ways – one was to put some drops on the brush and then use the napkin and the other was to put some on the napkin and then use it on the brush. I somehow found the putting on brush system better. Temptalia recommends that you transfer the contents into a spray bottle and then use the product. So you will end up using very little of the product each time.
|Look how clean the brush has become. I can see the color of the bristles 🙂|
Ok I will be forth with and say that I’m writing all this after using it just once (albeit on a couple of my brushes). Some of you might protest but honestly it was a no brainer for me. There is nothing else left that this product could do given what it does and the results I saw. I didn’t feel the need to test it over time and bring it you. The results are in front of you in one application. Price is around Rs. 650/- for 235 ml of product (dont know present rate got it off the net).
