I picked up Cinema Secrets Professional Brush Cleaner at The Makeup Show NY with some Cinema Secrets Foundation palettes. I couldn't get a hold of my trusty Ben Nye brush cleaner for spot cleaning (spray cleaner on brush or towel and rub brush back and forth), so I finally pulled this baby out. Oooh yes, my brushes were clean and a bit shiny as if the cleaner had conditioned them! Nice! Quick drying time!
Uh oh... the 'fragrance' is strong =( It was slightly pleasant at first, but then it got sickeningly annoying... like old rubbing alcohol and grandma's vintage drugstore fave. I get past some smells like Revlon's new Colorburst lipsticks, I even LOVE MAC's vanilla signature scent, but this is one I couldn't shake. When I did a test run of the brush over my arm to see if it was dry, the smell transferred to my arm. *Sigh* Small item to note: This didn't clean my goat hair brushes of the old, bad staining from other eyeshadows (a hot pink and blue). Not the brush cleaner's fault.
Overall, fab product if you can stand the smell! Parian Spirit here I come... will I get annoyed with the citrus fragrance?
