Brand Spotlight | Urban Decay


One of my favourite brands ever is Urban Decay. I love their counters, their palettes, their packaging and I have yet to discover a product from them that I don't love. Today I want to talk to you guys about some eye and lip products from their latest collection. 



First up is the Urban Decay Brow Beater. There is rumours out there in the make up world that this product is an exact dupe for the Anastasia Brow Wiz. This I cannot confirm as I have only used the Urban Decay one but they do look exactly alike and I have every faith in Urban Decay being just as good. I guess I am just throwing that information in to show you guys just how highly this product is rated.

So one end of the Urban Decay Brow Beater is a retractable eyebrow pencil and the other end has a little spoolie. The purple packaging is to die for and it is just so slim, compact and lightweight. The Brow Beater is ideal for creating that perfect arched brow that we all crave or if you already have full eyebrows it is ideal for filling in sparse areas.

What I love most about this product is the consistency of the pencil. It is almost slightly gel like so there is no dragging of the pencil or harsh lines in your brows. My advise would be to use gentle strokes and work towards either a natural or more dramatic look. The beauty of the Brow Beater is that you are totally in control of the finished result.


Once you have that perfect brow created you obviously want to make sure it stays in place all day right? That's where the Urban Decay Brow Tamer comes in. The Brow Tamer is basically a light weight formula that you apply to your shaded in brows to hold them in place, add colour or both.

If you are lucky enough to have been blessed with natural full eyebrows then this product can be used alone to add a more control and a dense look to the brows. What I love about it is the brush size. It isn't too big or too small. The Brow Tamer is also brill for brushing through the brows to make sure your shader product is evenly applied. 

The Urban Decay Brow Tamer is available in five different shades so there is one to suit every brow!

I am using the Brow Beater and Brow Tamer in all photos featured in this blog post.


I love lipstick. I love a really good lipstick and the new Urban Decay Matte Revolution lipsticks tick all the boxes for me. I have the shades 1993, Bittersweet and Tilt and they are just phenomenal. Despite being matte they are incredibly smooth to apply and not at all drying on the lips. The longevity of them is so impressive. They are the ones I reach for most mornings. The only issue I have with them is trying do decide which one to wear.

Channel your inner Kylie Jenner with 'Matte 1993'. It is a stunning medium brown shade that is perfect for Autumn Winter. I was a little nervous the first day I wore it because it completely took me out of my lipstick comfort zone but I really liked it and I got lots of compliments on it.



'Matte Tilt' is a bright and bold orange which is so gorgeous with a brown smokey eye and a strong contour. 





My favourite Matte Revolution lipstick out of the three I own is 'Matte Bittersweet'. This is a bright purple that speaks for itself. Whenever I wear this I keep my eye makeup quite minimal. It looks incredible with a small amount of liner and big lashes. This will be my signature look for the Winter months. 




Have any of you guys tried these products? If so, let me know what you thought of them.
I love to hear from ye.

Urban Decay can be purchased in all Debenhams stores or online HERE.

Have a great Sunday and a fabulous week.
