When Urban Decay first announced their collaboration with musician Gwen Stefani, I wasn't all that excited. I like Gwen Stefani (especially when she was in No Doubt), and the products looked alright (particularly the packaging), but nothing really caught my attention. Nothing screamed 'BUY ME'. However! Near the end of the recent 21 Days Of Beauty at Ulta (...that's how long this has been sitting on my desk waiting to be blogged about...) all of the Gwen Stefani UD products went on sale (except the eye shadow palette). I considered getting the blush palette (I kind of regret not getting it since the colors are rather pretty), but I ended up purchasing the Brow Box in the color Bathwater Blonde.
I have to say, UD did an excellent job with the packaging for this collection. It's visually interesting and, even though all the products have a slightly different color scheme, they all have same polka dot design so it looks coherent and well thought out.
Overall, I'm really impressed with this Brow Box! I love how it's all-in-one and has almost everything I need for a polished brow look; the only other thing I would want to add is a brow gel and a spoolie brush. $30 is still a lot to spend on a brow kit (this kit is still available at Ulta and on the Urban Decay website, but it's no longer on sale), but honestly, I think I could justify it after seeing how good these Brow Boxes are (plus, other similar kits from other brands retail for about the same price). If you're interested in a brow kit like this, I would recommend checking out the UD ones, either the permanent ones (there are two colors, Brown Sugar and Honey Pot; I wish there was more variety, but you do get two different shades in each Box) or this special edition Gwen Stefani one (even though it's limited edition and has different packaging, it's the same price as the permanent ones), depending on your color needs.
Thanks for reading! <3
