Recently I went shopping and completely forgot that I needed a brow pencil. I got plenty of other stuff (of course) but forgot something to make my brows look less poo.
Cue a little Boots click and collect order and I thought I would try this Soap & Glory Archery 2 in 1 Brow. I’ve tried S&G for brow products in the past and been a massive fan…but I have to say I am pretty disappointed with this one :(.
This pencil has an angled nib and I got mine in a dark ashy brown shade. The idea of an angled nib was something that swayed me towards getting it, but in reality this pencil has such a hard crayon part that you end up being quite harsh on your brows by trying to get some colour out of it.
I have areas of my brows that are quite sparse and don’t have alot of hair, so I don’t fancy being too rough as it might reduce hair growth. When you swatch the pencil on your hand, the crayon is fine, but it’s just too hard for my liking for brows.
THOUGH the thing I do like about this pencil is the sneaky little setting brow gel that’s hiding like a ninja in the bottom part of it.
This brow gel is alot thicker than I thought it would be – it’s a REAL setting gel. You know like the cheap clear mascaras you’d get from Collection 2000? Lol it’s just Collection now isn’t it. WELL, this is the exact opposite of that in that it actually does hold.
I don’t like that when you get some on your skin it stays there and it looks all shiny and glimmery – that’s not a good look. But if you can stand to wipe that off, it’s a good setting gel!
What’s your favourite brow product? 🙂
