Brow Box contains everything you need to get your brows in tip-top shape. There are two sets of brow powder offered: Honey Pot (blonde) and Brown Sugar (dark brown). Each kit comes with a dark and light shade so you can vary the intensity and blend the complementary colors to exactly match your brows. The kit also contains a small pot of wax to set your brows, tame stray hairs, and give them extra definition. Brow Box comes complete with a pair of tiny tweezers and a mini brush to apply the brow powder. The small size of the tweezers and brush make them difficult to use so you’d be better off using your own tools, although they’ll do the trick if you’re in a pinch. On balance, there’s more to like than dislike about Brow Box: The price is fair for the amount you get and the product performs! Consider us sold!

From its unconventional beginnings in 1996 with the debut tagline of "Does Pink Make You Puke?" Urban Decay has been at the forefront of the ongoing trend toward unconventional colors. Their approach to beauty is still rooted in steering clear of the norm, but for those creative, unconventional folks who want the opportunity to express themselves with well-formulated, edgy products, this is the line to look to.

Now representing itself by the decidedly tamer "Beauty with an Edge" slogan, the line still offers several shiny options (which excel by virtue of how well they cling to skin), but the items that really deserve your attention include some of their mascaras, bronzing powder, blush, and brow products. The brush collection is highly recommended and priced on the low end when compared to other department-store lines, and Urban Decay counters (as opposed to Sephora stores, where the line is typically sold) offer helpful literature about how to design a complete makeup look. The colors may be unconventional and more clownish than classy, but their placement advice is right-on.

Shortcomings of this edgy line include the lack of lipsticks and some glittery products that apply terribly. Those who appreciate products that make a statement (though it may not always be one that puts you in your most flattering light) should explore the best of what is offered here, as should those whose makeup concepts occasionally lean toward the adventurous side.

    Not the best
    • I ran out of Bliss Poetic Cosmetics eye brow kit (had it for a long time & 1 of the best) so I tried Urban Decay. The case is too small so it's difficult to use and forget the tweezers and the brush (way too small). The powder is too lose and a bit messy. I hope I can find better brow powder. Not going to purchase again.

    Love Brow Box!
    • I love UD Brow Box! It's an excellent product for shaping, filling, and colouring the brows. The tools are kind of on the small side, as the review states, but I find that the brushes are definitely usable (the tweezers might be okay for small hairs, or if you're in a pinch, but they are definitely not recommended for everyday use---they're a nice perk, but not very functional overall). The powders are wonderfully blendable, natural-looking, and the brow wax sets everything in place. I'm sold!
