Today’s review is going to be the NARS Ita Kabuki Brush. This I have to admit is a impulse buy because I went to Sephora to get only a foundation and concealer and ended up buying a lot more. It is not my fault that US Sephora’s stock so many great products that I wanted to try. Wish the Sephora in Chennai stocks up all of these nice brands with a not so marked up prices. So how did the NARS Ita Kabuki Brush fare out for me?

How Did The NARS Ita Kabuki Brush Work For Me?

The NARS Ita Kabuki Brush comes in a black cardboard packaging which I threw out when I came from the US. The brush has a flat rubberized handle like you see in almost all of the NARS product. The handle is quite thick and sturdy but my only complain with all NARS packaging is the rubberized part becomes dirty with makeup. The bristles on this brush are all natural and it is quite soft. I have read reviews on the Sephora website saying some of them shed badly but fortunately mine doesn’t. For the hefty price tag, I think NARS should be consistent with their brush quality.

The NARS Ita Kabuki Brush is sleek and compact also easy to carry around in the makeup bag. The natural bristles picks up the right amount of product and applies it with ease. If you are someone who likes soft, barely there contour then this is not for you because it chisels the cheekbones like no other and is quite appropriate for that strong contouring looks. I like the way the handle is made the flat shape gives more control for contouring the cheeks without it spreading too much on the cheeks making it look muddy. You also need to get the hang of this brush. The first time I used it the contour was too strong for my liking like a line on my cheek not a very cute look. So I first lightly bronze up my face and then use the NARS Ita Brush to chisel out my cheeks for a more defined look.

Overall, if you are looking for a good contouring brush then the NARS Ita Kabuki Brush is one I would absolutely recommend! But if you are on a budget then I would recommend you to try the Real Techniques Contour Brush, Real Techniques 301 Flat Contour Brush, ELF Contouring Brush, ELF Beautifully Precise Multi Blender Massager as they are the best and affordable dupes for the NARS Ita Kabuki Brush.
