Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil

aka the eyebrow god, aka my daily saviour. Okay, so I'm being dramatic - but it takes me a good twenty minutes to get my brows from nothing to something every day and so I want an eyebrow product that I can fall in love with so I don't resent it every morning. I've tried a lot - Anastasia Brow Dip? Too much effort and I need to wash the brush every day. Rimmel Eyebrow Pencils? Way way too dark. Other eyebrow pencils? Red based, for some reason. I've tried a lot, but always go back to a firm staple - Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil.


Now let me start by saying that, whatever your eyebrow needs - there's almost definitely an archery pencil for you. Putty? You betcha. Pencils, crayons, tints - all in all, there's something to fit all needs, but the one that I opt for is the pencil - skinny pencil on one end, plain spoolie on the other. Now, there's a lot of similar things on the market to be fair, and at £8 this isn't cheap - but for me it's worth it. Finally a shade of blonde that doesn't look ginger and completely different to my hair when I start to build it up! Finally a pencil I don't have to continuously sharpen in order to get those instagram brow clean lines! 

I never got the point of a spoolie but I have to say as I've gotten older my brows seem to appear to be more and more unruly in the morning and so I quite often brush them through before and after doing my brows, and it's nice to know I'm getting rid of my old, gross one every few weeks when I get a new product because I'm definitely too lazy to remember to swap it out otherwise, so that's a nice addition - but the real star of the show (and you'd hope so, really) is the brow pencil.


This is the blonde shade that all of us natural blondes have been looking for - dark enough to really make a difference without giving you a ginger sharpie brow the minute that you start to build it up. Sharp, thin pencil in order to create perfect hairstrokes, easy to twist up so I don't have to dig through everything to find where I left my bloody sharpener - all in all, it might be the mega lazy girl in me talking but I really like this - the cleanliness, the ease, the all-in-one factor; it's easy and pleasant to use and to me, that makes it worth all of the £8.

Now, it has it's downfalls - I find to really keep it in place I need to use a brow gel on the top, and the pencil is prone to snapping as it gets closer to the bottom; but for me, personally, it's definitely the best on the market right now.
