I’m all about Technic Cosmetics. My first EVER makeup was one of their dinky lil eyeshadow palettes that I smeared all over my eyelids and looked, quite frankly, a mess – but felt great. Technic has definitely had a glow-up since then; boasting super glossy highlight, Pro brushes, palettes, shimmer… and all at crazily affordable prices.
They were fab enough to send me a little package containing two of their Pro brush range (which are bright orange and super sassy) and their solid brush cleanser.
Now, real talk – I’m SO lazy when it comes to cleaning my makeup brushes! I’d rather guiltily spend a few quid online picking up a bumper pack of unbranded brushes than risk ruining my favourite brushes with my haphazard method of ‘whatever shower gel I’m trying to use up at the time’ and a mixing bowl of warm water.
No more! The solid brush cleanser is easy to use (even for layabouts like me) – you just wet your brush (I popped mine into a little glass of warm water), swirl it around on the cleanser – making cute lil bubbles as you do so – and voila!
I put this cleanser to the test with some of my messiest makeup – namely a super orange bronzer that I’m not sure why is still in my makeup bag, and a dark forest green eyeshadow that I want to wear RIGHT NOW but will have to wait til Autumn.
The cleanser has a really light, fresh cucumber fragrance, without being overpowering (I learned my lesson after I washed my brushes in Green Apple washing up liquid and they made my eyes water). Once you’ve swirled your brush on the cleanser and it’s all clean, let it air dry and dab a bit of tissue or paper towel on the cleanser to dry it up again before putting the lid back on.
I can’t even get over how long this will last me – it’s really convenient and saves making a foundation-water flood all over my bathroom floor.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to wash the makeup brushes I’ve been neglecting since 2015. Speak soon!
