Cinema Secrets Makeup Brush Cleaner

“Did I just buy magic in a liquid formula?!”


Clean brushes are a saving grace, and we all have Laura Lee to thank for this Cinema Secrets brush cleaner recommendation. I think we all know how important it is to clean our brushes of old foundation, dirt, and dead skin cells (I presume?), so I don’t think I need to detail why you should be doing this.

In the picture above you will see the travel size, containing 2 oz. of the cleaner. This cost me $8, and as you can tell I used about 1/3 of it to clean 10 brushes.

And when I say clean… I mean CLEAN.

I know, I know. How did I let it get that bad? People, here you see bronzer, foundation, eyeshadows, blush, highlight, the whole nine yards coming off in a matter of strokes!

Now onto the other side of the wash cloth… so yeah, I think you get the point. This stuff means business.

The directions say:

  • fill up the brush tin (which came with the product) about 1/4 of the way
  • for dense brushes, submerge about 10% of the brush and hold it upside down for 5 seconds, allowing the liquid to coat the bristles
  • for smaller eye brushes, submerge about half of the brush really quickly and start wiping onto a paper towel/old wash cloth
  • once you’ve dampened your brush you are to swirl it around on your towel/cloth and you’ll see all the dirt and makeup come off INSTANTLY
    – for really dirty brushes, repeat the process once more until no residue comes off the brush

And that’s it! Viola. Super clean brushes, and it dries almost instantly. I cleaned mine at night and let them sit overnight to dry completely. This restored a lot of my brushes’ original softness/color I forgot they had. I am absolutely thrilled and satisfied with this product, and plan to invest in the value size (32 oz. for $36).

Again, thank you Laura Lee for the genius recommendation!

  1. Thanks for the insightful post. I’m currently still on the hunt for an affordable brush cleaner. I’ve been using the nyx on the spot brush cleaner, but I can’t stand the scent. It’s very strong. Is there a scent to this one?
