Urban Decay Brow Blade Swatches: My Thoughts

As you can see from my pics, the liquid ink formula ran a bit and emphasized the little lines on my skin. This wouldn’t be as much of an issue in the brow area, but I personally prefer a slightly less runny formula. 

Note: I did apply quite a bit to get good color swatches.  In practice, I would use much finer and more precise lines.

Also, Brown Sugar isn’t quite as pigmented as I hoped it would be. For me, it was the worst performer of the bunch.  

That being said, these these dried down quickly.  They also have awesome staying power. I rubbed the swatches just a couple of minutes later, and with the exception of Brown Sugar, very little of the pigment wiped away. It also stayed put during the four hours until I took a shower.

The Urban Decay Brow Blade swatches dried down super quickly, and this is after rubbing them just a couple of minutes later. They all stayed really well, except for Brown Betty.

Urban Decay Brow Blade Swatches: The Verdict

Would I buy these? Yes, IF I didn’t just buy Kat Von D’s 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade. KVD’s pomade doesn’t run into my lines, but the application isn’t quite as precise. The staying power is also amazing though, and I don’t feel like I need both, even considering the brow pencil on the other end.

Overall, these are a great addition to Urban Decay’s collection.  If you love liquid ink brow products, this is definitely something to check out. They also added several other brand new brow products to their lineup: Brow Endowed (a volumizing, tinted brow primer), Brow Finish (a clear, waterproof gel), Double Down Brow (brow powder duos) and a Brow Microblade Stencil Kit.
