Cleans well, overpowering smell
Cleans my horribly dirty brushes really well, i just squirt the brush and the towel and swirl.
MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN A VENTILATED AREA - like outside - because this really makes me dizzy and feel ill if Im not!
other than that its great :)

Convenient, quick, affordable and strong smell
Artiste is almost always on sale at priceline so you can definitely get it cheaper than $14.95. It's quick and easy to use. I spray the cleanser on a tissue and swirl my brush into it. It gets off all the product and leaves my brushes looking as good as new. It even got my revlon colourstay off.
The smell can be quite strong but in saying that my brushes smell really nice after. Just be sure not to inhale. The scent is an artificial fresh scent with STRONG alcohol undertones but I quite like it (I'm weird that way).
Overall I think it does what it's supposed to do. And because it's a spray it'll last awhile making the value even better.

Great alaochol-based brush cleaner!
Good for spot cleaning eye brushes as you create your eye look & also a disinfectant after I have thoroughly washed my face brushes. Lovely vanilla scent!

I love this product. It's fairly cheap and definitely does its job. The only disadvantage about this brush cleaner is that the smell can get a little overpowering.
But it's definitely worth it. I highly recommend this product!

This Artiste Brush Cleaner is the first I've tried so I'm unsure how it compares to other brush cleaners. It comes in a black plastic and convenient spray bottle. It's easy to and quick to use - simply spray in between uses and wipe off on a clean tissue to remove product build up. It does what is says - cleans my brushes well but I also found the scent a little overpowering. All in all, a pretty decent product.

Does the job!
It works, smell isn't too over powering and it hasn't caused me any irritation. I use this on my makeup brushes between washes at home and at my work.
It's also quick and easy to use, just give the brush a good spray, wipe it a few times on a clean tissue and you are good to go!

Holy grail brush cleanser
I have bought other brush cleansers that disinfect my brushes but DON'T remove the product from them. This brush cleaner does both and smells great at the same time! I always buy it on sale for about $11 so I buy two at a time. Don't think I'll ever need a different brand!

Brilliant product to use inbetween real cleans.
I picked some of this up the day before i went to a fashion show in the city (i was working as a makeup artist).I had literally DOZENS of faces to transform...and a short time to do it all in,so this was a godsend.I felt safe in the knowledge i was cleaning and disinfecting my brushes between girls (i,m a nurse also,so i am crazy OBSESSED with this )and not spreading nasties.It cleaned well (after a dozen "smokey eyes",my brushes were getting a workout...with colours from black to gold and taupes to produce these looks,not to mention nude lips on one girl,firey red the next and only 2 lipbrushes in my kit ).This cleaner worked a treat,i had no colour transfer from dark to light from my brushes to a models face and it kept my brushes soft (one girl couldn,t stop about my soft brushes).A TRUE WINNER

This is actually a pretty good product if you need to clean quickly, probably not so great for full on cleaning, but you shouldn't be using a product for that anyway!
Definitely works well for in between cleans :)

Bought this along with my artiste brushes, I use this weekly to clean my brushes and I'm happy with the results, as others have mentioned the technique is to spray onto paper towel and swipe the brushes until clear, rinse under water, reshape brush and air dry.

Such a great product to quickly clean and keep brushes hygenic. I spray some of this product onto a paper towel and carefully wipe the brushes back and forth until clean. I have no problem with the alcohol-y-like smell.

This is great for a quick clean in between deep cleaning. I don't have time to wash my brushes every day but this stuff works really well and doesn't dry out or damage the bristles. It does have quite a strong scent but I just spray a little onto a tissue and wipe my brushes clean so I never breathe it in. The bottle lasts ages, I use it every day.

Can't cope with the smell
I thought this would be a brilliant product and it could be BUT I HAD to go outside in the fresh air to use it, then still had trouble with what to me was a totally overpowering smell. I sprayed just one brush, cleaned according to directions, let it dry and could still smell what was to me a quite strong and overpowering smell.
I ended up cleaning all my brushes with a good shampoo, rinsing really well and let them dry naturally and completely.
I definitely WON'T be able to use it again, regardless of how good it could be.

Good but pricey
This cleaner works great but it is only just as great as normal cleansing alcohol plus fragrance added without the price tag.

Quick and Easy
I use this on my brushes daily after applying my make up. It's great to use in between washes to keep brushes clean and hygenic. I spray it lightly on my brushes and then wipe them on a tissue, you can see the make up come off! The only thing I don't like is the alcholic smell but once dry the smell is unnoticable.

Good for a quick clean
I love this spray for cleaning my brushes in between the deep cleansing. It does a great job with cleansing, but I still like to wash my brushes properly.
It's really long lasting, which is great and a little goes a long long way.
I'm not a fan of the smell though - it's really strong and slightly unpleasant.
Other than that, I highly recommend this product as it cleans well and the price is great!!!

Good cleaner only inbetween colours if your brush set is limited.

This brush cleaner is really good. I use it mid week to roughly clean my brushes, and it does the job. To properly clean them I use shampoo, but this cleans up a lot of the built up makeup residue in between proper washes.

great product,works brilliiantly
Use this when you are using several colours at once to quickly clean them.You obviously need to actually wash your brushes,but this is quick and easy on the go stuff.

this is a great quick cleaner that is safe to use everyday on brushes but it does smell like cleaning alcohol. it disifects brushes and keeps them nice. i can put up with the smell.

Its a choker
This stuff does work, and does smell nice, but it chokes me. No matter how much i pull my face away when i spray it, it gets right up my throat and in my chest instantly. Its ssooooo strong. I have even started sparying it into a makeup wipe then stroke my brushes on that so they spray doesnt go into the air and it still chokes me. Actually, just last saturday me and 2 other girls were sharing a mirror to do our makeup and i used it on one of my brushes and all 3 of us coughed and choked from it. Cleans brushes very well but is def a choker. I want to change but as i have so many artiste brushes im not sure if another brush cleaner will damage them

Instant clean brushes
I would not personally use this for a deep clean as I believe brushes need to be sanitized through a deep washing of each of the bristles to remove any oily residue and gunk but this brush cleaner is a great way to instantly remove any colour and pigments for the mean time :) Dries quickly and its inexpensive

I love it because you can clean your brushes quickly and frequently (especially if you use alot of dark colours), and you don't have to wait till the next day for your brushes to dry.
The smell isn't too bad, and I found it very economical.
Only drawback is it doesn't deep clean your brushes and you will need to give them a more thorough cleaning monthly or so.

Love this stuff!
Okay, so I know this is basically pretty-smelling isopropyl alcohol, but it does just what I want it to, quickly and cheaply. Just a few sprays on a cotton pad, gently rub your brushes over the wet pad until they're clean, then allow to dry for a minute or two. How easy is that? I've been using mine at least weekly for 6 months or so and I'm about halfway through my bottle. The brush hairs haven't been damaged at all and the fragrance isn't overpowering once it's dried off. I'd highly recommend this as a quick-cleanse product, although you'll still need to deep-clean your brushes every now and then.
