Best of Makeup Brush Cleaners: Part I

Baby shampoo and water
Thoroughly cleans the bristles, but takes longer to dry. I don’t like getting water in the ferrule, which is almost unavoidable when you wash with soap and water.
Bare Escentuals i.d. Quick Change Brush Cleaner
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
Smells so good! Great especially for cleaning brushes in between colors and clients on set!
Cinema Secrets Professional Brush Cleaner
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
The best! Worth every penny and worth ordering online if not available near you! Cleans well, leaves bristles feeling great, smells good. Dip bristles in a bowl/jar of cleaner OR pour into a spray bottle for more convenience! 
Face Secrets Make-Up Brush Cleansing Towelettes
♥ ♥ ♥
Very convenient, towelette has perfect texture. Great for quick brush cleaning, but I wish they didn’t dry out so fast!
Face Secrets Professional Makeup Brush Cleaner
I didn’t like how the bristles felt after I used this cleaner. Smell is OK. Wouldn’t buy this one again.
Ulta Professional Brush Cleaner

Cleans well, smells nice, and leaves bristles feeling good. The directions say simply spray on and let dry, but I can’t help but wipe the brush on a paper towel!
