1. We claim the ornamental design for a textured device for cleaning cosmetic brushes, as shown and described.


FIG. 1 is a top plan view of a textured device for cleaning cosmetic brushes, the texture being arrayed in a planar manner; and,

FIG. 2 is a representative fragmentary cross-sectional view of the textured device for cleaning cosmetic brushes of FIG. 1 taken along line 2-2 of FIG. 1.

The broken lines are portions of the textured device for cleaning cosmetic brushes that form no part of the claimed design.
