NARS Ita Kabuki Brush & FOTD

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

Let me introduce the newest member in my brush family, the coolest Ita Kabuki brush from NARS :)

I've been wanting to get this brush for awhile and finally got it this week. I always wonder how the brush like this works and after seeing the demonstration on a NARS video and couple Youtubers talked about it I finally gave in. Here is the description from their site--

Modern concept and function unite with traditional Japanese culture, creating unique and versatile brush designs. Featuring super black goat hair known for its softness and strength, Kabuki Artisan brushes are designed for a variety of uses including color application, blending, contouring and highlighting.Super black goat hair in a small, flat, and angular design ideal for blending and contouring.

This brush is so soft and fluffy, easy to place the color and buff at the same time. I wasn't sure it will be user friendly since the handle is so different than the regular kabuki brush but after trying it for the first time, I was completely sold and become a big fan of their Kabuki Artisan series. I use it for contour and highlight, it goes right under the cheek bones and undereye and temple areas. I feel like I'm drawing Chinese calligraphy on the face every time I use it :) such a cool brush I have to say. I will recommend this to people who are serious about contouring and highlighting.

It comes in a pretty black box, so nicely packed.

Use it with my Laguna bronzer

I thought Kabuki brush is short, round, and fluffy.

It's true about the Casino. You could end up looking muddy.

hey, just discovered your blog... i am interested in the NARS ita, is it flat if you look at it from top down?

@Anna: yes it's flat, it looks like rectangle so there is enough surface to buff the powder. It's a interesting blush and works well at the same time :)

I really like that NARS brush! It's so cute!
Did you get it online?

Oriks BB cream is kinda grayish, not so pale. You shouldn't worry about the color of BB cream too much, they would blends into your skin tone after 10 minutes. If you worry it's too pale, just put some darker color powder to tone it down.

ooo i want i want!!!! thanks for the review!

Thanks for reviewing that brush, sounds very interesting, I've seen that in the shops but never thought it'll work well. I'll go and have a search on the brush video too and check it out. I'm a very serious contourer hehe :)
