NARS ITA Brush Dupe

When it comes to makeup brushes I’m really not too fussy. As long as they're relatively soft, easy to work with, and don’t shed all over the shop then I’m happy. That’s not too much to ask right? In my collection I have a mixture of MAC, Eco Tools, Real Techniques, Crown Brush, and a whole host of others but I’ve never really experimented with any luxury brand brushes, I’m talking Dior, Charlotte Tilbury, Marc Jacobs, By Terry, and that’s because I’ve never really had the need, not when I can purchase some pretty perfect dupes from the online market place we all know and love, eBay. 

Being the big fan of contouring that I am, the NARS ITA Kabuki brush was one of the higher end brushes that I would really love to try but, not willing to part with £43.00 for the privilege, I decided to buy a cheaper dupe on eBay (check it out here). The original NARS ITA brush is designed for ‘targeted contouring and creating strong, sculpted cheeks,’ something that seriously appeals to my inner Kimmy K. Now, I haven’t actually tried the original NARS ITA brush so I can’t really draw any comparisons BUT, if this bargain buy of a brush is anything to go by, then it must be pretty damn good. 

This eBay dupe is incredible. The bristles are super soft and the perfect density and shape for creating that precise, sharp contour. The brush itself is a nice weight and it has a large surface area allowing the user to gain a comfortable, strong hold on the handle, which is great for building confidence. When I want to add an effortless contour to my cheekbones, I wouldn’t use anything else. 

So if you are thinking about investing in the NARS ITA Kabuki brush, or any luxury branded beauty brush for that matter, maybe give eBay a go first.

Have you tried the original ITA brush or any dupes?

Take care x


  1. Can't believe that's a dupe?! Great post. X

  2. Ooh what an amazing find! Such a bargain too, gotta love eBay xx

    1. I love eBay too, there is literally dupes for everything out there! x

  3. I have a very similar dupe, except it doesn't say "NARS" on it. I've tested the original ITA Brush at Sephora and it honestly feels exactly the same. I'm so glad that I got the cheap version first because I ended up going back to an angled brush for contour, guess I'm not a big fan of super-sculpted cheeks in the end hehe. X

    1. Well at least you have tried them both :) I won't be purchasing the original now I have this! x

  4. wow...it's only £7:39! You can't go wrong when it's that cheap! I'm definitely going to try this dupe before I go out and purchase the Nars brush!
