Soap and Glory Archery Brow Pencil

Sleek's brow kit has been my go to since discovering brow products however recently I decided that I needed a change. I am one of those who tend to stick to the same products yet always want to try new ones however, never actually venture out. Being the lazy person that I am, I ordered Soap and Glory's Archery brow pencil from Boots online. The shop 5 minutes down the road just seemed too far that day obviously! Here are my thoughts:





First of all the shade that I purchased is 'Blondshell' which I thought would be way too light, however with the only other shade option being 'Hot Chocolate' I knew it would be too dark. The lack of a colour range is really the only downside I have for this product. The pencil is so pigmented with makes applying it so quick and easy. This particular shade can actually be built up into a slighter dark colour if I press a little harder with the pencil which is great as my hair is currently in a 'cannot make up its mind' state while my blonde is growing out.

The brush is also great as if you go a little too heavy with the pencil, which I always do when I am half asleep doing my makeup in the morning, you just have to brush through your brows and straight away have a more natural look. Using my previous powder I more often than not ended up going over the top with bold brows but this pencil does not allow me too do this which is great.. No more looking at photos and immediately feeling regret. Finally the fact that the pencil is retractable is also a bonus as there is no need to sharpen which is easier for us lazy girls!

For £8 this is such a great product, I am definitely converted.






What do you like to use on your brows?

  3. I really want to try this out as it sounds like an amazing product to have, but the colour range is awful and I couldn't get away with either of the shades unfortunately x

  5. I prefer he soap and glory archery with the felt tip as I don't think the wax works with my brows! I really rate the soap and glory beauty products though :)

  6. I'll need to give this a try. Recently I received Benefit Gimme Brow and I was a little disappointed with it, I've always like pencil brow so maybe this will suit me better.

  12. I recently have been converted to this pencil as well! It's easier for me to get a more natural brow than with a powder product. I really do need a shade between the blonde and brunette one though! xx
