Urban Decay Brow Beater Review

Hey Beauties!

If there is one part of makeup that i love more than contouring it has to be brows! Brows can completely make or break your look as brows frame your face. They are a lot more important than you might think.
I always say a good brow product is a lifesaver be it a powder, a pencil or a cream just so long as it does a good job or grooming your brows.
Urban Decay Brow Beater Review
I have been loving Brow Beater which was part of their Autumn 2015 Collection, this pencil has changed everything for me simply because the pencil itself is so fine unlike regular eyebrow pencils. If you know me you’ll know im not big fan of powders or creams because i think they can be a bit much but with a pencil i find this to be the most natural of them all.
I was really impressed by the waterproof formula you couldn’t ask for more as i find that brows and blush are 2 of the things that tend to disappear easily but with this waterproof formula you dont need to worry about your eyebrows disappearing throughout the day. In saying that Brow Beater would be perfect for those of you with oily skin because the oils in your skin won’t break this down as much as a normal pencil.
Urban Decay Brow Beater Review
One side contains the product itself a microfine pencil that goes on rather easily i wouldn’t say it was a creamy pencil by any sorts but it isn’t as hard as say the Shu Uemura pencils. I love the idea of this pencil being microfine this way instead of just filling in your brows with  a colour you can actually draw small brow hairs simulating a natural 3D brow rather than a flat block colour.
Urban Decay Brow Beater Review
The other side contains a eyebrow brush which can be used to brush through your brows to shape then and groom them into the position you want. I find as i’m doing my brows when you are creating the little hair just taking the brush though the brow softens the colour making the pencil blend with the natural colour of your brows.
Urban Decay Brow Beater Review
When i first saw the colour was called “Warm Brown” i’ll be honest with you i didn’t expect much as normally warm tones in brow pencils tend to make them look a bit fake and drawn on but with this pencil i didn’t really have that problem because the colour isn’t as overly warm as you might think. Overall the warm brown shade seems to have worked in my favour as i have warm tones in my hair so it matches quite well to the overall hair colour.

  • I honestly never though that I would have to talk about this on here.

DON'T USE MAGIC ERASERS TO REMOVE YOUR FAKE TAN!! I saw this "tip" on twitter and researched into a little more and found tweet after tweet from people who had tried this and effectively gave themselves chemical burns! 
Household cleaning products are not meant for the skin they often contain harsh ingredients that will strip away and remove things.

I feel like we need to be really careful on who you listen to when on social media. Just because someone says something it doesn't mean it's a good idea and it certainly doesn't mean that you should try something that dangerous!

  • I know it might be tempting to follow a lot of these create your own DIY skincare routine or DIY face masks but in truth it's easier and more effective to just use properly formulated skincare product.

Trying to be all natural by using food as skin care doesn't work it's not effective and its unsafe I used to believe the whole DIY thing that was until I learned more about skincare and realised it was just better to eat the food instead of putting on my face 🤣

A lot of the ingredients that people say you can use on your face aren't actually safe for the face I once saw a DIY face mask recipe that called for cinnamon, nutmeg, honey and lemon to be mixed together and applied to the face. This recipe will literally burn your face off cinnamon and nutmeg are known irritants so is Lemon which contain a high level of ascorbic acid which will irritate the skin if left on for long periods of time not to mention the fact it's photosensitising so can lead to burns if you step out into the sun.

Not to mention you have no idea of the efficacy you literally have no way of knowing if these products will work or if you're essentially just making mud pies like you did as a child 🤣 you have no idea of the possible reactions either that's why it's just safer and more effective to use actual skincare products because at least you have some sort of idea how they are going to work and if you will get reactions .

  • I see this more and more these days! Celebrities and influencers saying "this cured my skin it's amazing" but then don't talk about the fact that they get monthly facials and use acids and retinol on a daily basis. Yeah I totally believe you it's down to that crappy physical scrub you used once 🙄😒 What's worse is when I see celebs/influencers promoting supplementation that isn't even proven to work! Supplementation is literally useless unless you are deficient. No your hair won't grow to super lenghts because you a gummy once a day.

Don't get me started on these "fit teas" that are essentially expensive laxatives .

  • I get asked if oily skin should moisturise a lot and I'm here to tell you it's a resounding  YES!

I know the idea of making your skin oily again doesn't sound like fun but hear me out. Stripping your skin won't do you any good our skin needs to contain oil it's essential for skin health.

By taking care of our skin and using a light moisturiser say in a gel form for example will actually help to cut down on the excess oil as your skin won't be trying to protect itself when you strip the oil away.. Its really interesting when you realise a majority of oily skin types are really dehydrated so we need to look for moisturisers that are light in texture and contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, glycerin etc. I personally love the @cliniqueuk Hydrating Jelly it's a great serum/moisturiser for oily skin.

  • (Originally uploaded to Live)

Check out the 2nd episode of weekly skincare routine video! i will hopefully be making these every Saturday at 8pm UK time! make sure to keep an eye out.
  • I hate to say it but skincare is not a quick fix you can't use a product 3 times and expect miraculous results.

I see a lot of people using products sporadically and then getting annoyed when they don't see any results even though it's only been about 4 weeks of use.

While hyaluronic acid serums will show results right away you will look plump and hydrated, HA is generally an exception to the rule.

A majority of actives will take time to show results. Take retinol for example you might see a small improvement early on but it can take upto 6 months for you to notice a profound difference.

You need to be consistent in your use just because something doesn't work right away it doesn't mean it's useless, we also have to manage our expectations as well sometimes we hope for too much and are let down by the results. 
Skincare can only do so much so it's important to have realistic expectations.

It might not look like much is happening to start with but you need to keep going you need to push past the idea of "this isn't working" 
Think to yourself why do you think it's not working? Are you using it often enough? Are you using enough product? What are your expectations? .
