I've tried both and they're really about the same , If they made me choose, I'd pick the UD one just because the case is cute hahaha!
Heads and shoulders above Benefit's kit. UD's colors last me all day long and looks much more natural. The last time I used the Benefit kit, it disappeared almost immediately.
The Urban Decay model is about the same size, but only has one application brush, where Benefit's case has two (one brush that is two-sided). The tweezer set in the Benefit box is of better quality - the quality of the UB set is made of those very sharp-on-the-end tweezers that snip hair off or cut/pinch at you instead of working. It is very easy to use the Benefit mini-tweezers, and you can do a quick check and find the strays quickly and discreetly while you are out, socially. What I DO like about the UD brow kit is that they offer two shades of powder, which makes it far easier to accomplish a softer/more realistic brow. I purchased the medium brown of Benefit's line, having nearly black eyebrows, and when I apply the powder, and then the PIGMENTED wax, my brows look dark and almost harsh. Urban Decay manages to allow you a more subtle, real, clean look - just make sure you take care of your stray hairs in a separate grooming session.
If you've never used a brow grooming kit before, I would go for the UD model, because it makes it easier to find your correct shade through experimenting. Benefit's box can be slightly less expensive, and the box is easier to use and less bulky (and the tweezer works better), but if you end up with cartoonish eyebrows, what does it matter what the case looks like?

I used the benefit kit once I borrowed it from my sister n it was alright. I like the urban decay kit better cause it doesn't feel as cackey. I like the fact that the wax on the urban decay kit is clear its easier to shape out ur eyebrows without worrying about going outside the lines. it makes adding the color easier.

Benefit's kit has one pigmented wax, one pigmented powder, tweezers, and a brush. UD's has two powders, a clear wax, tweezers, and a brush. With UD's kit you have more color options. You can mix the two powders to create the perfect shade for you. Benefit only has three colors available and you only get one color per kit.
