Review || Soap and Glory Archery Brow Tint and Precicsion Shaping Pencil


Soap and Glory Archery Eyebrow pencil


Soap and Glory Archery eyebrow pencil

Soap and Glory Archery in Brownie Points. £10.00
Top - Natural Brow
Middle - Brow Tint
Bottom - Pencil

Finding the right eyebrow product is down to personal choice. Some prefer a powder, a wax or pencil to fill in and define their eyebrows. Soap and Glory Archery is a pencil on one end and a felt tip pen on the other.  
The pencil end is firm, a little dry but not too waxy allowing you to fill in and define your brows in either a natural or dramatic manner. I find the after the first couple of strokes the colour appears, I think you need to warm it up slightly or it tends to drag on the skin. As a pencil goes this is OK, not the best one I've used but certainly not the worst. The rounded end doesn't give you the precision that some others pencil's do but that's where the Brow Tint  comes in.....

On the opposite end is the brow tint, a fine nib felt tip pen that delivers just the right amount of colour. Some people have said that they find the nib to be dry making it hard for the product to come out, I haven't found this so I'm unsure whether they have a fault one or not. The brow tint allows you to achieve a very natural shape. The pen mimic's hairs in a feather like stoke creating a very natural brow that can be built up for a more bold look. I like to use this end for drawing in the start of my brows as the lines appear less harsh and more natural.

Using the two ends together you can easily achieve the perfect brow whether it be light and natural or more bold and dramatic. The colour I have is brownie points which is the darkest of the two shades they have to offer. I find it to be a perfect match for my brows, edging on more of the achy side of brown.
When using Soap and Glory's Archery I find my brows keep their colour and shape all day without the need to touch up. The colour doesn't smudge or transfer and well worth the £10.00 in my opinion,.. even if it's just for the brow tint alone!
What products to you use for filling in your brows, have you tried this yet?

  1. I love the sound of this! I've not tried any Soap and Glory make up before but this might have to be one of the first things I try.

  4. The tint looks amazing, so natural. From looking at the pencil, it does look like it would be a bit thick, particularly at the skinny end of the brow, but the result is really good. I've only recently branching into S&G makeup but have been impressed with the items I've tried. I'm using a brow powder at the moment (which I've had for 3 years and is still going strong), I'm forcing myself to try and use things up before buying anything new, but I think this will be the next brow product to try! xxx

  5. I have this and have had it for a while but I'm still too scared to give filling in my brows a try! I've never actually done it before, even though I really need to after over plucking and one pesky brow that decided to go a bit bald, but I really need to be brave and give it a try soon. I'm just a bit concerned about making a mess of it and it looking silly x

    1. You should do it! Use the end with the pen first. Use it lightly and built them up slowly. I'm sure they'll look fab. Remember practise makes perfect. :) xx
