Product Review: Estée Lauder Makeup Brush Cleaner

I recently came across this Estée Lauder Makeup Brush Cleaner some weeks and I was eager to try it on my makeup brushes. I aim to clean my makeup brushes once a month, or every 6 weeks. I hardly wear makeup during the week, so I don’t see why I should clean my makeup brushes every week as recommended by the professionals.

I have used MAC Brush Cleanser religiously for years, so when my last bottle ran out, I was happy to try another brand, and Estée Lauder came to mind. One of my beauty resolutions for the year is to try out as many beauty brands as possible, so I am happy I am going ahead with it. I got this bottle from Debenhams, and I am loving it so far.

This professional makeup brush cleaner promises to gently and thoroughly clean, sanitise and condition makeup brushes, both natural and synthetic.

How the brush cleaner works –

Dampen it, then apply Estée Lauder Makeup Brush Cleanser to brush hair. Use your fingers to work into a lather.
Rinse well, then blot excess water with a paper towel and reshape the brush.
Lay brush flat to dry. Place at edge of table or counter with bristles pointing out to air-dry completely. Avoid drying upright, which can cause bristles to spread and handles to crack.


Well I put makeup brush cleaner to test, and here are my thoughts:



  1. It is super affordable. A 235ml bottle goes for £12.
  2. I love the packaging. It comes with a spray head, which makes application easy, and avoids unnecessary spillage.
  3. It cleans the brushes throughly. My makeup brushes, especially the foundation and concealer brushes, were in desperate need of a good clean, and this Estée Lauder makeup brush cleaner fulfilled all its brushes. My brushes looked brand new after a good few sprays of this Estée makeup brush cleaner.
  4. This product is easily accessible at Boots, Debenhams, House of Fraser, Amazon, and Estée

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.
