Our prayers have been answered!

Washing makeup brushes is one of the many things in life that is a.) goddamn annoying, but b.) absolutely essential. They get up close and personal to our face on a daily basis, which means they gradually build up with oil, dirt and old makeup.

Even if your makeup brushes appear clean on the outside, don’t be fooled! They very quickly get contaminated with bacteria, which can wreak havoc on your skin. Gross.

So, if you have a ton of makeup brushes and you’re stressing at the thought of cancelling after work plans in favour of setting a side a good few hours to wash everything from your angled buffer to your mini pointed contour (yawn), don’t worry because we got this covered.

The Lilumia 2 is a high-tech beauty appliance that acts as a washing machine for our makeup brushes (halleluiah) and cleans up to 12 brushes at a time, leaving them soft and silky.

All you need to do is fill the machine with cleanser or soapy water, plug it in and let it work its magic. Gone are the days of tirelessly scrubbing and rinsing over the sink resulting in an aching back and a sad looking mani.

With a device like this, you’ll have more time doing the things you love; whether that be sippin’ on cocktails after work or watching back to back episodes of Stranger Things on Netflix. Winning.
