Confession – I had no idea what I was going to blog for today. I’ve got a crap-load of stuff to get through but I didn’t feel like really talking about makeup which regulars might notice is how I usually kick off the week. We all need something pretty to start the week with right? But I’m wallowing in a rut so I was going to take the day off, when the weekend brought a fortuitous blog post idea – Brush Cleaning Tools!
Huh? I can almost hear some of you think. Do you need tools for cleaning your makeup brushes? Isn’t it just soap and water? Well, the trend sort of started out with Sigma who came up with their Spa Brush Glove – basically a silicone glove with raised dots, that was supposed to help you speed up the cleaning process of your brushes. It also cost US$35 (RM115) *choke*
I wasn’t going to spend that sort of money on what was basically a non-slip silicone oven glove (which you can get from any kitchen shop at less than Sigma’s price if you really want a glove for washing your brushes) but I was curious as to how it worked. So one day while at that paradise of all things cheap, cute and tacky i.e. Daiso I picked up something I thought would do the trick.
When I posted about it on Instagram, @Jeninec commented that I could find a dupe of the Brush Egg (another popular brush cleaning tool, it seems!) at Daiso too! So off I went again to Daiso to pick it up and here we are! Let’s talk brush cleaning tools, how it works and why you can easily save on them rather than splurging 😀
