Product Review – MAC Brush Cleanser/HOW To Clean Your Brushes

Whenever I think of Beauty, I think of MAC. Whenever I run out of any beauty product or I need a new beauty tool, I always think of going to a MAC counter first before I think of other cosmetic brands. Guess MAC Cosmetics has become a worldwide beauty name and every girl, regardless of her race wants a piece of them.

I won’t say I am obsessed with MAC or any other cosmetic brand for that matter. I only buy what I need, when I need it. I won’t go out and buy five different shades of red lipsticks for example. Not that sort of girl or blogger.


I got this MAC brush cleanser awhile and I have used about half of it now so I can give an unbiased product review.


  • This cleanser does the job. It cleans my brushes so well, they look and feel brand new.
  • It is well packaged.


  • It is quite expensive at £11 for a bottle but then again it is a MAC product.

Now while snooping about on the internet as always, I discovered many people do not actually know the importance of cleaning their makeup brushes (some people confessed they have never had their makeup brushes cleaned, yikes) and many people have no idea how to clean their brushes properly so I will try to break it down:

It is EXTREMELY important to clean your makeup brushes. I clean mine every month and I will advise you do so too. Cleaning your makeup brushes keeps them clean and free from bacteria and other germs which may be harmful to your skin, causing spots and skin conditions. Cleaning your brushes regularly also wipes off the residue from the many colours applied on the brushes, leaving your brushes looking brand new.

When using the MAC Brush Cleanser, you do not have to go tugging at the brush bristles to get the dirt and colours off, this product cleans the brushes easily and quickly. Here are the steps to follow when cleaning your makeup brushes:

  1. Put some of the cleanser on tissue, make sure the tissue is damp but not soaked.
  2. Gently wipe your brushes using downstrokes.
  3. Change the tissue if necessary and repeat step 1.
  4. Keep wiping until there is no more residue or makeup on the tissue.

I love the MAC Brush Cleanser, it leaves my make up brushes looking brand new. I will use it again. However, there are many brush cleansers out there that may be more affordable and may do the work as well.

Have you tried this product before? What are your thoughts?

  1. I love this and I use it too. Will be picking up another one on duty free when I am travelling next Wednesday. I buy those MAC products on duty free, saves me a lot of money.
    I do clean my brushes once a week, that’s just me though. My skin is sensitive. I discovered cleaning my brushes regularly helps loads.
    Have a great weekend Stella.

    • Aha once a week? That is very good. I do not apply makeup everyday so I can get away with washing mine once a month. Guess it depends on how often you use them. Hope you are off to a nice location. Enjoy.

  2. I’m REALLY rubbish at washing my brushes. SO rubbish that I didn’t even know that you could get a solution for cleaning them. That said, I barely wear makeup so I think I could probably get away with it. 🙂
