Cleaning Brushes with the James Cooper Makeup Brush Cleaner

HPIM0151James Cooper Makeup Brush Cleaner (150ml) PHP 399.00, Watsons | Sigma Make Me Blush Travel Kit Container $59.00, order here | Variety of brushes shown in the photo

I finally bought myself a makeup brush cleaner! I have always struggled with endless hours of cleaning all my brushes with water & a special concoction of whatever shampoo mixture that would totally clean out all the dirtiness of my brushes (I know I’m not the only one, though) A few days back, I was at Watsons and decided to give in and just give the James Cooper Makeup Brush Cleaner a try. It was quite affordable compared to the other brush cleaners! At 399.00, definitely much cheaper compared to the one from MAC 600++ and Beauty Bar 450. Albeit I’m still gonna try out those brands just to compare.

Okay, you have a dirty brush. What do you do?

I just need 3 things now. A white lint-free towel (whatever color would be okay, obviously), the James Cooper Brush Cleaner, and my dirty brushes!

The instructions on the back of the box says:

"Spray cleaner directly on tissue 3 times, gently stroke brush back and forth over tissue to clean. Repeat if necessary.”

I didn’t follow that, though! What I do is spray the spray directly on the brush (5x) and stroke it back and forth on the towel. With my Sigma F80 (super dense brush) I had to repeat this procedure 5 times to get all the makeup residue out. You would see how the color blots on the towel gets fainter and fainter in the video. With the much less denser brushes however, the brush cleaner gets all the residue out in one cleaning.

Overall, it varies how many times you have to repeat cleaning according to the density of the brush.

Let’s make this a 2 in 1 blog entry and give a review on the James Cooper Makeup Brush Cleaner:

  • 399.00—not bad for a price since it’s considerably cheaper than the other makeup brush cleaners
  • it works—it gets all the makeup residue out 100% and brushes are left all clean
  • 50ml spray bottle—this bottle with last you depending on how frequently you clean your brushes/number of your brushes
  • fresh, clean scent—brushes are left smelling “fresh” and really “clean” (if you know that “clean” smell)
  • available at Watsons—with James Cooper counters, that is

Overall, I highly recommend this brush cleaner to all my fellow makeup artists/enthusiasts. I will be grabbing a bottle of the MAC one as well as the one from Beauty Bar to do comparisons.

As for drying the brushes, my old school way was actually just laying my brushes down on the table on a towel!

But then BRUSH GUARDS WERE MADE!

Since spot-cleaning doesn’t involve water, I let my brushes dry upright with the brush guards on. I think this is perfectly alright as no water would seep through the ferrule in the first place. The Brush Guards allow perfect ventilation, letting the leftover moisture [from the brush cleaner] evaporate after a few hours while still maintaining the shape of the brush! You can get Brush Guards from Make Up Hub by Naturele Collezione! :) (10 pcs 250.00 only)

Now for something more advanced and revolutionary…we have Sigma’s DRY’N SHAPE!

DSC00802DSC00804

If you’ve never heard of the Dry N Shape before…

The revolutionary Dry’n Shape system was specially designed to completely dry and shape your most dense brushes within 4-6 hours, guaranteed!

KEY FEATURES:

  • Applied pressure to the bristles to remove water from each fiber
  • Utilizes a special fabric to allow water evaporation during the drying process
  • Dries and shapes your brushes in as little as 4-6 hours!

Using the Dry’n Shape is my newest FAVORITE way of drying my brushes! Totally amaaaazing!

You can order the Sigma Dry’n Shape here!

I hope you’ll enjoy the video as much as you enjoyed this post!

How exciting it is to be at yet another bazaar for Make Up Hub by Naturele Collezione! I was at the SuperSale Bazaar on July 15, 2012. I wanted to be present in all three days of the event, but my classes in school didn’t make that possible. Nevertheless, I had so much fun on the last day! I met wonderful people, my amazing readers, and even fellow YouTubers!

LuLu Makeup Workshop

The first official makeup workshop of LuLu Makeup (in celebration if its 1st Year Anniversary) was held at Studio SnR last July 14, 2012. I was really glad to see the room full of beautiful ladies who signed up!

Charlene Tan of http://www.yellowyum.blogspot.com and I were the instructors for the day. It was so much fun to teach the day time makeup look—I loved watching all the students learn! Teaching makeup for the second time around is really fun. (My first time was during the LEAP program at De La Salle University) I am in no way a professional makeup artist, but I love sharing the tips and tricks I learned throughout my journey in YouTube as a makeup guru as well as a beauty blogger.

Look at everyone doing their own thing!
