Review & Usage

Marc Jacobs The Conceal Full Cover Correcting Brush No. 14 is a very expertly-designed angled concealer brush. It is flat on one side (with longer bristles) and angled or tapered on the other (with shorter bristles). The bristles are made of antibacterial synthetic hairs and are densely-packed and soft. The black lacquered handle is slightly heavier than most concealer brushes but still offers a good control during application.

The side profile of the brush actually resembles the tip of the finger. You can use the “slanted” side to place your concealer into the small areas such as the inner corner of the eye as well as around the nose. It is also great for covering blemishes due to the tapered shape. The “flat” side can be used to apply and buff out the concealer on a broad area to a streak-free, airbrushed-like finish.

This brush can also be used to apply cream shadows on the eyelid as well. It does a wonderful job at spreading the cream texture evenly all over the lid. The tip of the brush is also perfect for applying colors onto the crease with precision.

The synthetic fibres are easy to clean, do not shed, and retain their shape well. The printed Marc Jacobs lettering on the handle looks nice but I suspect that it will wear off over time. I would have preferred it engraved but then it may not look as classy.

  1. Your close-ups are absolutely stunning again. The brush definitely looks classy as fuck. I probably don’t need-need it though, so I’m trying not to be swayed by it’s gorgeousness.

      Thanks, Melissa! :) I wasn’t a big fan of Marc Jacobs packaging in the beginning but somewhere along the way I fell in love with it! Now I think it’s really classy! :)

      I think it’s too big for a smudge brush… unless you’re talking about smudging the color all over the lid then that could work! :)

    This is probably not a good time to admit I very seldom use a concealer brush! Very often I use the tip of my Wayne Goss foundation brush for that, although I really should be less lazy! I know that MAC 217 functions well as a concealer brush. Since I own it, maybe I should start from there!

      Is there ANYTHING at all that MAC 217 cannot do?! LOL! Seriously, whatever job, you name it. 217 delivers! ;D

      Every makeup lover needs to own that brush!! I have 3. LOL.

    This looks similar in shape to one of the sides of the Naked 3 brush or so I’m told which is also good for cream shadow and concealer!

      Yeah, I wish they were more accessible to the rest of the world, too. Even in the US, you can only buy their products from Sephora and Marc Jacobs website (as far as I know).
