Over the last year, Makeup Revolution has taken the beauty world by storm. Their constant stream of new releases, in particular dupes of higher end products are raved about by bloggers and bargain lovers alike. Their range has gone from strength to strength adding three brackets of makeup brushes and even releasing a range of hair and skin care products. However, I have to admit, when I first picked up Makeup Revolution’s Anti Bacterial Brush Cleaner, I wasn’t exactly bowled over with it and it sat on my desk rather neglected after my first attempt at using it. Although the spray is formulated to sterilize and disinfect, which should prolong the life of your brushes, my first mistake was trying to use this on my large foundation brush. It didn’t seem to make a dent on the inner bristles or leave it refreshed and I went back to using my silicone brush cleaner which for larger brushes is a complete must have.
I now realise that my first thoughts on Makeup Revolution’s Anti Bacterial Brush Cleaner were not entirely correct. After splashing out and treating myself to Urban Decay’s new Naked Smokey palette, I wanted to try recreate some of the gorgeous smokey eye looks I’d seen online. While normally I use my Crown Brush Deluxe Duo Fibre Crease* brush or the Real Techniques eye brush set, I had completely forgot about how mudded colours can become after using a darker, smokier shade in particular on your brushes used for base colours. This is where Makeup Revolution’s Anti Bacterial Brush Cleaner really has its chance to shine. While swapping colours, or even just after applying spray the brush cleaner directly onto the bristles and wipe. Within a few swipes on a bit of tissue (or if you’re me, the back of your hand..) and your brush is clean and fresh ready for your next use. If you use a lipbrush, it’s also fabulous for avoiding the dreaded colour seeping. Since this little discovery, I’ve been using the Anti Bacterial Brush Cleaner day in day out and it’s become a staple part of my makeup routine.
Despite my initial qualms with the product which were mostly user error, I feel at the £5.00 price tag, this product offers fantastic value for money. Makeup Revolution’s Anti Bacterial Brush Cleaner is available online and in Superdrug stores.Have you tried Makeup Revolution’s Brush Cleaner yet?
