I own this in Beige Betty. I wanted this kit for a long time because I figured it would be great for travel (which it is). I didn't buy it from Urban Decay because the price was way too unreasonable. This kit is not worth the $30 so if your eying it, I would find it for cheaper on Ebay. Thats where I bought mine and I only paid about $15. For only $15, I think its worth it. The powder in this is more natural looking than most brow powders, but I don't think it stays for long enough. I use a brow pencil (MAC Lingering: refer to my review) and I keep the UD Brow Box in my purse for touch-ups. The wax that comes with this kit is good because it doesn't leave my brows looking glued down to my face. The brush is nice to have if you don't have another brush to use, but its not the greatest at packing the color into the brows. The tweezers work well but since they are tiny, they are slightly difficult to use although they are nice to have in there just in case.The packaging is kinda cute, but it appears frail as if it would break if I dropped it. I wouldn't repurchase this, but its a nice kit to have handy. I'm also glad it doesn't take up much room in my purse.

Update in Dec 2013: I reach for this little box all the time. Know why? The tweezers. They're great, just small and sharp enough to catch the little hairs that are just starting to appear. The mirror is handy too. Having brow colour in the same set is now just a bonus :-)This is a great little set. The brow colours come with a light and dark option in the same set, there's lots of wax, the mirror is larger than I expected, and the little tweezers is great. This tweezers is actually easier to use than my big one! I've got no excuse for having unkempt brows now.My only gripe is that I bought this sight unseen because Urban Decay isn't sold where I live, and the one I ended up with isn't quite dark enough for me. I have very fair skin and mid-brown hair, but although Beige Betty sounded perfect it's really a bit too light and the paler colour is invisible on me. The Brown Sugar set would probably have been a better choice for me.

I looked forward to buying this for over a year because I really just didn't want to shell out $30 for a brow kit, or even $20 on sale. So I finally bought it on ebay from a respected seller, more on that later, for a little under that...Over the last year or so I have tried many brow pencils (not natural looking enough), Clinique's powder cake in 'wheat' (wrong color for me and no wax), the e.l.f. brow powder in 'light' (alright but made in China and also lame wax) and the NYX kit in 'auburn/red'( a little too magenta tinged, but points for being made in Taiwan instead of China). So my search brought me finally to UD's brow box in gingersnap. i love this color, and I love the wax. i don't love those tweezers, though, and can't see how anyone can use them. But my MAIN beef is this brow box is $30 and made in China. (again I bought it on ebay so if it's fake and not made there i will change me review) But back to that China sticker on the bottom. Puhleeze. i am so sick of these 'high end' make up companies trying to sneak this by us (cough cough smashbox cough). For example, say UD's products are 25% US, 75% imported. maybe 30% from Germany, 15% France, 20% Italy and 10% China - they charge the same exorbitant mark up for them all. So why would any of us want to buy something from China that cost so little to produce plus with shady health/human issues to boot for so much money? Really, if they need to charge that much for a small plastic product, it better be made in the U.S. or in Europe or any other country that has decent standards for it's people and it's products, like Japan. And if it is made in China it better be a deal so at least I'm only insensitive and shallow, but not broke too.I am still using this though, and i will tell you why. These are by far the most natural colors for fair, freckly skin i have found yet. Also I hate returning things. So 2 lippies for the powders and wax, - 1 for China, - 1 for the tweezers, -1 for the price. Oh,BTW i tossed the tweezers and put the spoolie that came in my NYX kit into this instead. it fits perfectly and i use it with the wax so my brush stays clean. Woo hoo.

I got mine in Beige Betty... had to eBay it because we don't have UD in Australian stores... Anyways, I mix the two shades together, and it makes my brows look so natural like I was born with them. The wax I don't really use because it goes funky on the skin underneath after a while... but the performance of the powder totally overwighted that little flaw. The tweezer is tiny but really good, and the little brow brush saved my day because I couldn't find my eyeliner brush anywhere... so it doubled as my eyeliner brush too! Aww, come back to Australia please, Urban Decay!

I love love love this. I have dark brown/black hair and naturally black sparse brows. It's difficult to find a product that doesn't give a groucho-effect... but this in Beige Betty is perfect! It's kind of like MAC's Coquette shadow but a little less gray. It really helps that there's two colors to tone it down a bit. The packaging is cute but I wish it wasn't quite as thick. Not a huge deal but it is a little clunky. Still, it's worth repurchasing!

I love this product! I've used drugstore products and high end shadows and pencils. This one is by far my favorite. I am constantly playing with my hair color so I love the two shades to play with and tje wax is a great bonus. I've never used it before but I really lime it!!! It lasts all day and the packaging is compact and easy to travel with.

This is a must have! I use this on a daily basis. It's great if you want a natural looking brow but if you want a dramatic look for a night out this works well too. I love the wax that comes with it because it makes my brows look much neater. The tweezers work really well as does the angle brush that comes with it. It's everything you need to care for your brows in a tiny little box you can take anywhere. On top of that, the packaging is ADORABLE! HG!

This is my HG of eyebrow products! I was introduced to this by a makeup guru who used it and was intrigued so I went to Sephora and purchased the one that seemed best for my coloring. A definite dip into the pocket book but I have just loved it! The brush and powder are excellent for shaping the brow and the wax sets it perfectly. Although it took me a very long time to learn that the eyebrows make or break the eye frame, once I did I am very particular about mine. At mid age my brows have some thinning and this kit works to make my brow line look natural and full. There are two colors in this kit and I sometimes use the darker for a more dramatic effect. Simply put, this is one of those products that I love and find necessary to use every day - speaks volumes for the value of it!

This is such a handy kit, I have it in Gingersanp; great for red heads. I was surprised to find that the tweezers in my kit actually worked; they aren't perfect but they do work. I have had this kit for a year and have barely made a dent in the color and wax; it doesn't take much to get the look I want. I think this is well worth the money and I will repurchase when I eventually run out.

The price of this is fairly expensive, £15ish, but it seems like it'd last a LONG time so it's worth it imo. Before this, I never did anything to my brows except shape them. Now I can't imagine NOT filling them in! It makes me look so much more polished and better. I have dyed dark brunette hair and light brown eyebrows so it really makes a difference matching my brows to my hair.The packaging is absolutely adorable and admittedly one of the main reasons I bought it, the flip lid houses a mirror, two shades of powder, a pair of tweezers and a little applicator brush. In the bottom of the box is a tray of wax which clicks in and out. I tend to dab the brush into both shades of powder to get a mix of both, and use the brush to apply it by swiping it sideways across my eyebrow, it took me a couple of tries to get used to doing it but now i've realised that swiping motions to kinda spread the powder along the eyebrow are best, it's easy to do fast. I do short motions rather than one long stroke, kinda like painting.The tweezers are okay but seem kinda blunt, I probably wouldn't use them as my main set but they're alright for when you realise there's just one or two stray hairs as you're doing your makeup in the morning.The wax seems alright but I think tends to clog the pores round my eyebrows and has given me one or two spots since I've been using it. I dont like to use the brush (I prefer to keep it dry for the powder) so it's probably because I'm using fingers, which are too big to follow just the brow line perfectly. The wax doesn't seem necessary anyway, the powder tends to stay very well on its own.The box, while cute, isn't very portable, so you can't just chuck it in your daily makeup bag, but then again not many people need to carry around an eyebrow kit. It's more of a dressing table kinda product!In conclusion, it's an awesome product that I can't imagine living without now!
