I’ve been trying to sort out my make up brush collection recently by streamlining the brushes that I have, clearing the ones that I don’t use and making room for newer, better brushes. This was a complete spur of the moment, ridiculous purchase that I instantly regretted until I got it home and started using it. I now consider the Marc Jacobs The Bronzer Brush #12 to be worth its weight in gold and worth every cent of its $78 price tag.
Now I know that you should never judge a book by its cover and the same goes for beauty products and their packaging but with Marc Jacobs, I’m drawn to it like a magpie. Even the boxes scream luxury. Black and glossy with matte white sides and silver lettering, it looks expensive and makes you appreciate that the quality of the product will be second to none. That excitement when you open the box and see the goodies inside, I was inner squealing in delight when I first took a peak at the massive fluffy brush head.
I only hope that my photographs do this brush justice. The brush itself is quite big, approximately 8 inches in length and the brush head itself is enormous. The bristles are densely packed but still soft and fluffy. It reminds me of a kabuki crossed with a duo fibre brush. The synthethic hairs are antibacterial and wash as well as any of my other brushes.
For product use, with the size of the brush head, the Marc Jacobs O!Mega Bronzing Powder is obviously a perfect fit. The Marc Jacobs The Bronzer Brush #12 picks up powder products so well and diffuses them across your face. I do tend to save this brush for bronzer as it is covering a larger area of my face and it is also amazing for my MAC MSF as it distributes the product perfectly. I also love just how beautifully it blends the product out, leaving a soft flush of colour that can be built up and no harsh edges.
At the moment, Marc Jacobs Beauty is exclusive to Sephora with no signs of it hitting the UK. At $78 which is around £50 for a bronzer brush, its not the cheapest but for the quality and the amount I have already used it, it has practically paid for itself. Treat yourself to the Marc Jacobs The Bronzer Brush #12 from Sephora.
