answer 1
Yes, I purchased the Urban Decay brush as well, it's a very nice brush 2 But in my opinion the Urban Decay is less dense, really, really soft, but very heavy, it made my hand and arm tired to use it. Now the Marc jacobs brush is more dense, have more hairs which makes it fuller, is very soft to and less weighty... Hope this helps u with your decision.

answer 2
It's denser, softer, heavier, and provides a smoother finish over the Real Techniques brushes.

I have both, but prefer the Marc Jacobs brush because it's fabulous and too soft for words.

I use the Beauty Blender liquid and solid cleansers for all my brushes. It's gentle, smells great, and gets every speck of foundation out of the brush. It also helps to wash at least once a week (or more often).

Hi Slizlarson,

We suggest the Make Up Forever Travel Instant Brush Cleanser which is perfect for synthetic brushes!

The Face II has more of an angled shape. They are meant for different things. The Face I is more meant for liquid foundations. I have both brushes. I'd suggest getting both since they're made for different uses.

Brush No. 1 is a round, domed brush. Brush No. 2 is angled and a little wider. I have and use Brush No. 2 for liquid foundation and it works great.

Is this anything like the UD Optical Blurring brush?
I have this brush and I love it, but I read such good reviews of the Urban Decay Optical Blurring brush that I'm curious how they compare.

I have both the UD brush and the MJ one. I must say, I LOVE the Marc Jacobs brush. I used the UD brush and was constantly having issues with it losing bristles. It also didn't seem to apply my foundation as evenly as the Marc Jacobs one does. I hope this helps!
