I was on the hunt for my beloved Nars Sheer Glow foundation at Sephora to use with my store credit but it was no where to be found. While shopping around, I stumbled upon this beauty. I immediately was intrigued because of how soft the brush was. It is honestly the softest brush I have ever felt... like ever! I decided for $48, I should try it out. First off, I just wanted to say that I already love this brush so so much.
This foundation brush works well with my Nars Sheer Glow foundation very very well. It applies my foundation evenly without any streaks. It gives my foundation a similar airbrushed look that my beauty blender does. What is really good about this brush is that I don't have to replace it every few months like the beauty blender. It really packs on the foundation so I don't feel like I have to use as much product. The brush also has a great weight to it. I feel like I have a better handle on makeup application.
I used the beauty blender solid cleanser to clean the brush. I must say that it took a few times for it to get completely clean. I cleaned the brush after I applied my makeup that morning. This foundation brush is not the easiest to clean but the beauty blender cleanser cleaned it very well. Also, it didn't shed when I cleaned it. I have heard the the Marc Jacobs logo will fade over time and that is already annoying to know lol. I hope it doesn't but I know with most brushes, the logos do fade away. This happened with all of my MAC brushes.
I thought this brush was going to be similar to the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush but no... this is so much better. It's bigger than the expert face brush and it is more dense! The expert face brush applies so streaky. I just stopped using it all together.
|see the major size difference?|
All in all, I would say this brush has been perfect for my liquid foundation. I love the way it applies and the brush itself is so luxurious. I really really really wanted to get the Marc Jacobs Bronzer Brush but for $78 I can't get myself to buy it. It's a big fluffy brush that I would love to have but in the near future. For now, I'll stick to my Face II brush. I was going to get the Face I brush but this one had better reviews. The face II brush is primarily used for liquid foundation, which is the reason why I bought it.
Let me know how you like it :)
