New year, new eyebrows! The brand new Urban Decay Street Style Brows collection is out and it’s a pretty sweet set of products available in seven different shades.
The idea behind the Urban Decay Street Style eyebrow grooming collection is four products that give us the benefits of six. These eyebrow specific products Volumize (Brow Endowed), Build (Double Down Brow), Define (Brow Blade) and Finish (Brow Finish).
Here’s a rundown of the shades that are in the Urban Decay Street Style Brow collection: Taupe Trap (taupe, for everyone), Gingersnap (auburn, for redheads), Brown Sugar (soft medium brown), Cafe Kitty (warm medium brown), Brunette Betty (warm brown), Neutral Nana (neutral and not pictured here) and Dark Drapes (dark brown).
Urban Decay Brow Endowed is a dual-sided Brow Primer and Brow Color. The brow primer is described by Urban Decay as a brow hairspray to give your brow hairs some “oomph!” The color can be used after you’ve filled in your brows to add some color back.
I always start my eyebrow product application (see a tutorial here) by using a thin pencil to underline the lower part of my brows which I then blend in with a spoolie. I love the soft definition, which is what you get with the Urban Decay Brow Blade Ink Stain + Waterproof Pencil. You use the ink stain to fill in the gaps where you need to.
If you’re looking for a solid brow powder, I do like Urban Decay Double Down Brow. it’s described as being a brow putty and gives more depth than the average powder. It’s waterproof, so your brows won’t budge!
The Urban Decay Brow Finish comes in two shades – Ozone, which is clear and Midnight Cowboy, a shimmery champagne. What a fun idea for brows!
To create these brows I used all of the products in the Taupe Trap set. I do love a good taupe brow!
I set my brows with Midnight Cowboy Brow Finish- what a fun look!
As I used these products, I found myself wishing that the Brow Blade was two separate products. Though I like them both, I do like brow pencils with a spoolie at the opposite end, as with ColourPop’s Dope Taupe. What I usually do is apply the brow pencil and then blend it in my brows with the spoolie. Yes, there is a spoolie in the Double Down Brow palette, but the convenience factor of the spoolie with a pencil is my preference. Another small issue is that coordinating the caps on Brow Blade can be a bit confusing, so I only remove one cap at a time.
My Final Thoughts: Urban Decay Street Style Brow products are designed to up your eyebrow game. I love that we’re seeing a return to natural, non-sculpted brows and these products help make that happen. I honestly wouldn’t call any of these holy grail must haves, but I do like the Brow Blade, Brow Endowed and Midnight Cowboy Brow Finish.
