Hate or Rate: Urban Beauty United Brushes

Hi girlies, so as you can probably tell I've been slightly behind on posts recently. I'm so sorry, but I've been really busy, however today I have an exciting new brand that I've discovered and have a little review for you all!

Urban Beauty United or UBU are a brush brand available in many countries such as England, India, Italy, Austrailia, Spain, Brazil and Finland! As well as 16 other countries! In the Uk however they are only available at selected Tesco's and Asda's. I picked mine up at my local Asda's for just £6 for the 3 piece Smoke Screens set.

This set contains 3 eye brushes, which are meant to give you the smokey eyed look, and they did not disappoint. You recieve an eye defining brush, similar to Mac's 266, a tapered blending brush, and a domed smudged brush, which is by far my favourite! Each brush uses synthetic bristles which are great when it comes to cleaning your brushes as they are in my opinion easier to clean. They each pick up a good amount of product too.

Not only are the brushes extremely affordable and easy to work with but they are also attractive in appearance. This is the main selling point of this brand. Everything's high in colour. The white handles, black barrels and purple bristles are appealing and look sleek, and edgy. I like the colour of the bristles as you can see whether your brushes are clean or not. Throughout the whole collection UBU use many different colours on their brushes, such as pink, orange and red.

I highly recommend these brushes, especially if your on a budget or not wanting to pay as much as the higher end charges. I hope you've enjoyed this, and please follow me on twitter @EmmayBelle and bloglovin' ! Bye! X


  1. I might have to purchase these as I can't afford MAC at the moment! x

  2. I've not heard of Urban Beauty United but they sound really good :) Raspberrykiss xo

  3. Would definitely recommend them! I have many Mac brushes and as much as I love Mac, and wouldn't stop purchasing it, these brushes are great quality for the price!
