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.
