Easy Peasy Brow Pencil?




Hello everyone!

I'm about to do that cliched apology that all bloggers make when they haven't posted in a while. I'm sorry, I have been away skiing and the Wi-Fi has been all but non-existent- I can only apologize on behalf of the Cairngorm Mountains. #MountainProbs

Today I am reviewing the Soap and Glory Archery 2-IN-1 Brow Filling Pencil & Brush. I don't think many people are aware that there are two Archery brow pencils- the 'Brow Tint and Precision Pencil' and the one I bought, the '2-IN-1 Brow Filling Pencil & Brush'. I certainly wasn't, so when I went to the counter I was completely stumped...Not a great start. 

As a person who had never filled in their brows before I went for the crayon one as a brow tint seemed a bit too intimidating for me- as someone who mocks badly applied eyebrows I couldn't bear the idea of bad looking/messy brows.

I opted for the lightest pencil in Blondeshell because I didn't want them to be too dark (In hindsight I wish I had gone darker). I also went through a cringey moment where I asked the lady at the counter if she thought it was the right colour , she then proceeded to stare at my eyebrows for a good 10 seconds and said "Yes, I... think so dear." . It's safe to say she thought I was the most incapable customer of all time. 




Though I have no previous experience with brows I really think that this is such a good product. People have compared it to the Anastasia Brow Wizz- I don't know if this is a good comparison but there you go haha.

In terms off easiness to use, this is so simple my dog could do it.  The brush does the job really well and the pencil is so smooth and pigmented that it make my eyebrows looks so defined- yet natural. 

The only issue I have with this pencil is that once it's on it only lasts about 6 hours, meaning that I put it on before school and by the time I'm home, my eyebrows have vanished! I think this is due to the fact that the colour is slightly too light for me so I wouldn't let that put you off!

I hope you have enjoyed this post, it wasn't a very informative review so if you have any questions leave them below! Haha x

See you next time..

  3. I didn't know there were two versions, thanks for letting me know. I have the other version and just as I began to like it the crayon broke, which is really annoying. I may pick this one up though because I really liked using the crayon x
