NARS YACHIYO KABUKI BRUSH

I recently got my hands on the Nars Yachiyo Kabuki Brush attracted to it by its elegant design and the excellent reviews. As soon as I took my Yachiyo out of its box though I felt a little bit disappointed because it looked quite thin and flat, with triangular shaped sides and a pointy head whereas I had expected a fluffier brush with a tapered dome. So my first impression was of a useful tool for contouring or applying colour with precision in small areas, as in fact illustrated in the product description, but not ideal for a more 'diffused' application of colour. In fact when I first tried to apply a bit of blush on top of my cheeks it ended up looking a bit patchy and streaky to start with. This was before I washed the brush! After washing and drying the brush with a hair drier, it transformed into the fluffy brush I had expected and it did not only apply colour with definition under my cheekbones but it allowed me to blend it and diffuse it effortlessly and seamlessly all over my cheeks as well. So my recommendation is to wash the brush before using it! Moreover the soft bristles pick up a lot of pigment but, after tapping any excess off, they retain just the right amount of product for a perfect application of colour.
