    Coastal Scents Brush Shampoo Cleanser Review

    Coastal Scents Brush Shampoo

    It is important to keep your makeup brushes/tools clean at all times. Washing your brushes at least once per week is a great way of maintaining them and it prevents you from getting breakouts. The Coastal Scents brush shampoo cleanses all traces of makeup and impurities from the brush leaving it clean and fresh for next use. I have been using this brush cleaner for quite a while and it sure does stand up to its claims. I have also tried the Olive Oil and Baby Shampoo method of washing my brushes but often times my brushes are very oily and too much of sheen, even when I use the Olive Oil sparingly, this method does help with cleaning my brushes but I hate the after effect.

    Coastal Scents Brush Shampoo Review

    The Coastal Scents brush shampoo is gentle on the brushes and it lathers, conditions and cleanse the bristle and fibers. I like to maintain my brushes by cleaning them once a week. This helps to prolong the life and performances of my brushes while giving me a flawless application each time I use it.


    1.     Apply a small amount of brush shampoo onto wet bristles
    2.     Massage brush against the palm of hands under running lukewarm water
    3.     Rinse thoroughly to remove soapy residue
    4.     Squeeze bristles gently to remove excess water
    5.     Reshape
    6.     Lay flat to dry


    ·         cleanses all traces of makeup and impurities from brush
    ·         small amount required


    ·         the bottle is not compressible
    ·         the liquid is difficult to dispense


    I would definitely repurchase this brush cleaner since it cleanses my brushes very good without leaving traces of makeup and impurities. I found the bottle is not compressible and the liquid was hard to dispense from the bottle I ended up having to unscrew the bottle cap to get the liquid out. The liquid is of silicone texture and it lathers… I hope they add a pump to the bottle or redesign it for easy dispensation.

    Coastal Scents 22-Piece Brush Set
    I was drawn to this 22-piece brush set from Coastal Scents by the ample amount of eye brushes included in the set. Even though I was having second thoughts about buying this brush set, it turns out that I eventually bought it and yes, I’m loving it.

    Looks like a clutch when closed
    The Coastal Scents 22-piece brush set is a complete set of makeup brushes. The brushes cater to different needs from applying foundation to powder and eyeshadows. The brushes are super soft and of good quality.
    Brush Roll open dimension 24.5″(L) x 9.5″(W) x 0.50″ (H)
    The brush roll is of a matte black faux leather material with the Coastal Scents logo imprinted in the middle of the closing flap. The flap folds up three times and has two magnetic snap buttons to keep it close. When you open the first flap you will notice a little zipper pocket that can be used to store small items. Upon unfolding the flaps one can notice a nylon type of material that separates, holds, protects and cover each brush.

    Coastal Scent Makeup Brush names, types and uses

    1. Fan Brush – made with synthetic hair 
    This brush is used for sweeping/dusting loose eyeshadow that fell out while applying, it can be also used to apply a light application of blush and bronzer. This brush does come in handy sometimes but it’s not often used like the foundation brush.
    2. Powder Brush – made with synthetic hair
    It’s very soft and tends to give light coverage of powder but this is not something that I would use to regularly to apply powder to my face. I would prefer to use a fluffier powder brush to apply powder and use this brush to blend foundation all over my face.
    3. Flat Buffer Brush – synthetic hair
    This brush is great for blending out an application of foundation.
    4. Angle Blush Brush – natural brush made of goat hair
    This brush is super soft and its use to apply blush to the face.
    5. Round Powder Brush – Synthetic
    This brush looks similar to a dual fiber brush, it has white brushes which can be difficult to clean but with a little olive oil and baby shampoo that will do the trick.
    6. Foundation Brush – Fiber Hair
    This is used to apply foundation but you might want to use the flat buffer brush also to get a perfect blend.
    7. Large Shadow – Pony hair

    10. Doe Foot Blender – Pony Hair
    This is a fuller angled brush that can be used for blending, shading and contouring. It allows you to apply an even application from lash line to brow bone. It can also be used for mineral concealer around the eye and highlighting the brow.

    I’m so glad I bought these brushes, it is everything that I’m looking for in a brush set. The quality is amazing and the price is reasonable. I haven’t experienced much shedding with the brushes, the only brush that was shedding is the fan brush. The only downfall with this brush is identifying them since they are not labeled on the brush handles.

    Would you buy these brushes? Do you already own them? What was your experience like using these brushes?
