NARS YACHIYO BRUSH


This brush, oh my. I don't think I know enough brush related adjectives to describe the perfection that is the Nars Yachiyo Brush. Crafted in a traditional Japanese method that preserves the kabuki's original character, the soft goat hair fibers are hand wrapped in black wisteria. Not only is this brush the most beautiful brush in my collection, but it is also the most functional and useful I have yet to come across. 

The Yachiyo brush is a member of the Nars Kabuki Artisan Range, a range that has now piqued my interest due to the quality and versatility that this brush offers. The tapered, slightly pointed shape of the brush head makes it precise enough for soft contouring, applying targeted setting powder, and dusting on a natural looking and diffused highlight. While I love that I can pick up one brush and be done with the aforementioned steps of my makeup application, my favorite use of the brush is for applying blush. This brush is unique in that it somehow picks up the right amount of product no matter the pigmentation of the blush itself. I reach for this when I want to pick up more color from my sheerer blushes, but also for when I need a lighter hand when using my more intense blushes, for example, the Nars Blush in 413 Bleeker. (Pictured above) 

The many uses of the Yachiyo justify the price tag so much so that I wouldn't mind having two of these brushes lying around for the sake of not cross contaminating product categories. Let's just say I have already developed quite the little love affair with this guy...

  1. Lost count of how many times I have thought of getting this and held back thanks to that price tag attached with it! May be one day when I decide to get only one thing in a month!! :-)
