Hello 2015! Hello with a good start about this Nars Ita brush that has changed my contouring look. This post will be short and sweet because it’s just a brush. But I really wanted to dedicate a post to this brush because it is quite an amazing brush and has changed the way I contour. So many raves about it from so many YouTube gurus and it deserves it, guess what, I will rave about it some more. Let me start off by saying that it is quite pricey, and I ended up making the decision to get it because on boxing day NARS had a 20% sale at Holt Renfrew and I totally went for it, it was the last one so I was so happy I got my hands on it. It retails for $60 CAD prices may vary. It is so sharp yet fluffy at the same time. There are many round brushes that are stiff and fluffy but I do believe that those straight brushes do not give you the precise contour that is desired. There is also the straight Sonia Kashuk brush that came in the purple set, but it does not blend it out well, I would have to use another brush to blend. You need a straight bottom line for your contour to be effective. It also needs to be blended upwards so that it is precise towards the bottom. This brush does JUST that; it creates a straight bottom line and by moving it upwards in waving motion it will create that blended effect. I must say that it did shed a little in the beginning, and I was very surprised, but it is all good one. From how amazing this brush is, I only use it for fancy nights out and heavier makeup days because it gives me that extra lifted effect and I like to feel the difference. If this brush is too pricey, which it is, my next beautiful alternative that has less of a smaller price different is the MAC 168 Large Angled Contour Brush, which retails for $42 CAD prices may vary.
What is your favourite brush to contour with? I will definitely show you who I use this in a coming video.
