100% yes to the forthcoming Urban Decay Brow Tamer. I don’t really pay a lot of attention to my brows, but after being very silly and seeing what would happen if I applied hair dye to them I’m temporarily having to look after them a bit better! I thought my brows could do with being a bit darker, but 10 minutes of hair dye was a distinct over estimation.. I would have been better, I think with 10 seconds, as they’re now rather dark! What the darkness has exposed is that one brow is more sparse than the other, and I’d never noticed it before because they’re just normally a bit of a mousy brown. Truly, I’m not really all that bothered, but it’s a good excuse to brush up on brow perfecting skills. Nothing could be simpler than the Urban Decay Brow Tamer – literally a mascara-type brush, small enough to hug the brow, with a very good, non-hardening tinted taming gel inside.
There are five shades (above, bottom to top), Clear, Dark Brown, Natural Brown, Warm Brown and Taupe. Taupe is great for blonde or grey brows. There’s definitely a difference between the brow that’s wearing it and the brow that isn’t in my test – while my brows aren’t unruly exactly, I can feel that there is a ‘hold’ element, and the tint is spot on perfect in terms of adding colour without heaviness.
I’m a bit less excited by the Urban Decay Brow Beater pencils – they seem rather hard, and one of the tips snapped off the first time I used it. But, there’s a brush on the end so you can groom the colour through. I’m not sure really about this type of brow pencil – if you use a felt tip point you can be very precise and accurate, with brow mascaras, it’s a decent sweep of colour in one action, but the pencils, once the very sharp tips have gone can’t do those individual strokes like a felt, or the one sweep like a brow mascara. With the Urban Decay Brow Beater pencils, they just don’t seem soft enough to get a good blend on them anyway, even if you do groom through afterwards with the brush.
However, if you like the look of softness and need specific points of your brows filling in, they come in four shades (from bottom to top): Dark Brown, Netural, Warm Brown, and Taupe.
You can find them for £15.50 HERE.

I saw these in selfridges yesterday (6th august) so if anyone is looking check your UD counter 🙂 xx
thanks so much Adele… I’ve amended the copy x
I never really do anything with my brows but I love UD so maybe those brow tamers would be a good place to start!!
Oooh, I’m looking forward to trying out the brow gels!
I love the idea of the eyebrow tamer, I used to use the UD eyebrow powders and those were fabulous, so I’ll definitely have to give these a try!xx

like the look of these.
Urban Decay do seem a little late to the brow trend! Not that I’m complaining, I’m sure these new products are lovely 🙂
oooh I like the sound of ‘hold’ my eyebrows grow downwards which is very annoying so it’s good to have something that hold them and keeps them looking as though they grow in the right direction!
That eyebrow gel sounds great. ::adds to never-ending make-up list::
I saw these a couple days ago and I’d like to get the Brow Tamer to be able to compare it with Benefit “Gimme Brow”. The fact it has a brow pencil too, is a bonus!! xx
