NARS Ita Brush #21

[ Edited ]

So the other day I watched Jaclyn Hill's updated contouring video, first of hers I've ever watched and wondered why I haven't subscribed before! Anyway, she uses the NARS #21 brush, wondering if anyone has used it or knows of an alternative square kabuki brush, the reviews I've been reading says this one is scratchy. But she makes contouring look so easy!

This one looks similar but I've never used their products before:

If I remember correctly, she uses TheBalm's Loumanizer religiously. That stuff will seriously give you the JLo glow! haha

Lauren Curtis uses this brush too... I remember she was describing it in one of her videos, probably on contouring... sure is expensive, though! Sephora seems to have... well I won't call it a dupe, but similar style brushes (that are actually most similar to the illamasqua contour/square strip brush). Sorry I don't have any name specs. Its late heh

Between reading it was scratchy and shedding like crazy, I decided to go for its cheaper alternative, Itahake. Now that I think about it, it might have been a spin-off of the Ita!

I tried the Jaclyn Hill method to contour my forehead and I can't get it down the way she did with the brush. I guess I wasn't used to the shape, but I'll be practicing :smileyhappy:

This looks really good!! Do you have to order Everyday Minerals online??

I haven't seen the line sold anywhere else. Besides, they're always giving out extra freebies, so it's probably best to order from their site :smileyhappy:

I think so, I haven't seen it anywhere before. I did get some samples from them last week, but I haven't used them yet. They have pretty good reviews though. I think I am going to try the bronzer and get one of those cute brush rolls.

Re: NARS Ita Brush #21

I love how she explained the heart shape because that makes it so much easier to remember. I was already using bronzer on my forehead the way she showed, I just don't dramatically contour because I'm afraid of it being to harsh. I will try once I have this brush though!

Re: NARS Ita Brush #21

If you like this one I'm sold :smileywink: Just from the photos it looks so much softer. My skin is so sensitive, no way am I taking a scratchy brush to it! I thought the same thing when I saw the name lol.

It's definitely soft; it reminds me of something Real Techniques would have put out :smileyhappy: PS, did you check out Retailmenot for the latest coupon code on Everyday Minerals?! LOL

I saw EM has a Yachiyo brush too! I wonder how it compares to NARS :smileyhappy:

Re: NARS Ita Brush #21

Oh I WISH Real Techniques had one of these, my favorites! I will check out Retailmenot lol. I always do before I make any online purchase :smileyvery-happy:

Btw, did you try the Real Techniques' Limited Edition brush set? I found the bristles on the medium sized one to be really scratchy. That's the only disappointment I have with their line so far.

Her face looks great the whole contouring and everything looks perfect
