doesn't do anything

I bought this spray because it is affordable and has a lot of good reviews, but unfortunately it doesn't seem to do much for me. I have oily skin and my make up seems to last the same amount of time with or without the spray.

does the job but not great

I'd recommend this cleaner if you use a lot of make up and don't have the time to clean your brushes daily. It is definitely better than not cleaning your brushes at all. But it doesn't get all the make up off.

pretty good for the price

I only use my brushes for powder and this shampoo does get powder off my brushes pretty easily. I'm not sure if it'd do as good a job with foundation. The only annoying thing is the bottle - it is really hard to squeeze product out.

Not convinced although beautiful shimmer

I am struggling to like this product - I got the apricot colour and it comes out quite orange. It’s very pigmented so when I use my fingers to highlight its sometimes hard to blend. I prefer a looser powder to highlight so unsure I would buy this product again.

It's okay

I don't love the brush on this mascara. I prefer a comb type. Also didn't realise it's waterproof until I tried to wash it off. Good coverage of the lashes but not my favourite mascara.

Don’t waste your time

I wouldn’t waste your time on this brush cleaner. I gave it the benefit of the doubt and tried it a couple times before I reviewed. It’s really disspointing and doesn’t clean one bit of makeup off my brushes at all. I tried it on my brushes multiple times with wet cloth, dry cloth and both didn’t take any makeup off the brushes. I’ve tried the designer brand one on adore and it’s cheap and amazing...

So smooth and silky!

This makes my face so smooth... it's like silky and feels so fresh! I used the pad that's included a few times but found that it would pick up the foundation I had put on my face so instead of using the pad, I just swipe the powder with a brush. I love that the turning lid thing inside, allows you to easily control the amount that comes through the holes. It's such a great product and I highly rec...

Good for travel only

I was a little disappointing with this brush cleaner. I use the ELF brushes and they're great.This didnt clean well at all I had to use so much of the product. Probably would only ever use it as a travel brush cleaner in between uses because its so tiny. Smells good but doesn't make up for it not actually cleaning well. I recommend getting the DESIGNED BRANDS brush cleaner if you're looking for a ...

Disappointing

I dont really like the idea of spending a fortune to clean my makeup brushes so ive been trying a few of the cheaper alternatives lately. This one didn't work at all cleaning wise. Was a small bottle too. The smell was a lot nicer than most cleansers but it hardly took any of the makeup off the brush.

Doesn't clean well

Probably will not purchase again - didn't clean my brushes very well. Was a really small amount of product too.

Unsure/Okay product

I expected a lot more from this brush cleaner (Even though its cheap) because the ELF brushes are such good quality and price but this was a let down. To start with the bottle is TINY its more of a 'travel' size brush cleaner - I have to say it would be great for travelling if you dont want to take a big bottle of brush cleaner. It doesn't clean very well - I had to use maybe 6-8 sprays just to ge...

Easy to use

Really convenient to use in the pencil form, moderately creamy - a little more waxy than higher end versions, has a secret sharpener in the base although I would never use it - however I found mine would go off after about 6 months. The colour tea rose is a really pale grey lilac and totally unflattering - be warned!

Creamy and fun!

Very creamy formula, with great pigment and payoff, also fun that it is dual ended. However it has a fruity scent and taste!

Love the colour, just wish it lasted

I wanted to try out some liquid shimmer eye shadow before comitting to a Stila stick and loved the colour of this online. I have never used elf products before, and would probably say that I won't be buying it again. While I love the colour and the price tag, there is just no staying power. The shimmer comes off as soon as I put it on. It's a shame. Will try the Stila and see if that works.

Love adding this to my skincare regime

I have the original flavour of this - the dark brown colour, and it smells like brown sugar I think! (Aka delicious) This is a really luxurious step for adding into your skin care routine, even if it's just once a week. It is exfoliating but it is also nourishing as it leaves a balm like feel on the lips. I can't wait to try the other flavours.

Natural finish

I have classic fair, normal type skin, and I have to say the colour match on me was great. The finish is very natural and it's a solid medium coverage. However, I think it can tend to 'move' around a little bit, especially if you are wearing sunglasses or touch your face, so I don't think it sets as well as I would like. Still, a decent affordable option with a creamy feel. PS: I don't use a prime...

Nothing special, yet good value

If you purchase in the correct shade, the gel and powder can be great for your brows. However, the pigment is average and probably harder to use than other products out there.

Great affordable brush

This blends really well, and is generally an excellent quality brush especially for the price. However, I think I have noticed that this tends to 'gunk up' with product a bit more than the higher end version, and thus require more regular cleaning - but I'm not 100% sure on that.
