Marc Jacobs Omega Bronze + Brush

As a very pale person, bronzer becomes an essential part of ones daily makeup routine.  The goal in mind is to not look like a cast member of the Jersey Shore or a Kardashian, but rather find a happy center where Casper does not become a common adjective used to describe you.  The only issue lies in finding the perfect bronzer for a pale cool-tone skin tone.  Most bronzers are either too dark or too red-toned; intended for the tanner goddess who has a lovely toasty tan.  I unfortunately, have the raw pizza dough effect so most bronzers make me look dirty or orange.  Far from the inner sun-kissed glow.  The Marc Jacobs Omega Bronz and Brush are both luxurious products that carve themselves into your beauty regimen.

Prior to this product, I’d laugh at the concept of using bronzer.  To be honest, quite justified, a person as fair as I am rarely finds a bronzer that provides a natural affect during the fall and winter months.   This however, has become a game changer.  Rather than using as a contouring bronzer, I love using this to add color to my complexion in the easy E/3 Method.  I also like using this on my collar bone  or on my shoulders.

The compact itself is on the larger side with a large mirror and sleek black and silver design.  It applies matte and has no shimmer or iridescence.   Each application leaves your skin looking airbrushed.  As a finely milled product the powder feels incredibly soft and by no means drying.

MARC JACOBS Bronzer Brush No 12 retails @ $78.00

To create a sun kissed bronze look, I’d recommend using a large powder brush.

Marc Jacobs created the No 12 brush to accompany and enhance the effects of the Omega bronzer.  By all means the man is a genius.  This brush is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.  It is a very large, super soft brush that is born to do what it was designed to do.

At such a hefty price, this brush by no means feels cheap or inexpensive.  At the end of the day, you don’t feel as though you’ve been robbed, or that you spent money simply for the brand.  Both the bronzer and brush are both sleek and beautiful.  The brush size is large enough and soft enough to evenly distribute and blend out the finely milled bronzer throughout the face without being blotchy or streaky.  If you are looking for a contouring bronzer brush, move along ladies.  I would recommend using the Nars Ita brush instead.  Due to it’s large size and soft bristles this brush work for applying setting powders, foundation in powder form, or bronzers.

      Another great alternative is the Too Faced Milk Chocolate Solelei. The results are identical, and I believe the Too Faced bronzer is more affordable. I personally just couldn’t get over the scent.

      Thanks for dropping by!
