Questions & Answers for MAKE UP FOR EVER Instant Brush Cleanser

Can I use this on a brush to get color off from a certain color eyeshadow and then use it again in a few minutes?
I am trying to add to my make up collection but right now I only have 1 brush for eyeshadow. Can I use this brush cleaner to take off the dark eyeshadow and then move to the lighter color afterward?

Absolutely! That's exactly what I use mine for and it works perfectly. You only need one spray and you can take the darkest, creamiest color off, even glitter. Do not hesitate. I've tried pharmacy quality and it is night and day. It's worth it. I spray the product on a paper towel and rub the brush in.

I actually just use a few eye brushes myself and use a lot of different eyeshadows for my eyes. Just clean it per usual and let it dry for a few minutes. This cleaner dries very quickly anyway

sensitive skin?
I'm obviously not putting this directly on my skin, but I am applying it on brushes that DO go on my skin... Consequently, I need to be careful about what's in my brush cleanser too. I know that mint-oil extract can be an irritant. Is it very potent in this product? Does it linger on the brushes, and have any of you suffered any irritation as a result?

Please let me know! There are very few quick brush cleansers out there that are truly fragrance free (both synthetic and fragrant plant extracts)...

The product is very fast drying! I find i can instantly use the brush again, as long as i have wiped off the moisture on a napkin or tissue

I'm allergic to some ingredients, but this brush cleanser has not irritated my skin at all. I have expensive make up brushes and this product cleanses great. I'll keep buying it.
Hope that helps you.

My skin is super sensitive and i've had no trouble using this. Although I usually clean my brushes after using them in the morning so they have a whole day to air out before I use them again the next morning, this might be something to consider as an extra precaution instead of cleaning them right before using.

This can be used to clean beauty blenders, however it will be a little more difficult as opposed to a bar soap cleanser and water.
