Finding a good eyebrow product is hard; we all get brow envy when we see girls on Instagram with perfectly groomed numbers or flicking through your copy of Vogue and being bombarded with Cara's bushy brows. However, there is a fine line between groomed, over-tweezed and out of control caterpillars. For me, I spent the latter part of last year getting a bit carried away with my brows and filling them in too perfectly to the point that they didn't look natural at all. This look may look nice for a night out and I will still occasional whap out my MAC charcoal brown and pack it on with an angled brush, but it was hardly day-time appropriate. It was over the Christmas holidays when I went shopping for a new brow product with my sister (a stong natural brow supporter - but then again she has incredible natural eyebrows) when I remembered the recommendations for the Soap and Glory Archery brow pencil. I had heard good things about the colour range and was actually interested to pick it up as it was duel ended with a pencil on one side and a spooly on the other, something I was in desperate need of. However, when I went into my local Aberdeen Boots I picked up what appeared to be "Brow Archery", and it was only when I went home that I realised I had picked up a different product. Turns out Soap and Glory make two different products with exactly the same name; one being a pencil and brush and the other being a brow tint and pencil.

Turns out, thankfully, this was a very happy mistake. The Soap and Glory Brow Archery Tint and Pencil that I picked up is perfect; the shade "Love is Blonde" is incredibly ashy and matches my light/medium cool-toned hair perfectly. The pencil comes with two products: on one end is a waxy nib, similar to that of the Anastasia Brow Wiz, however my favourite side is actually the brow tint, which I can only describe as liquid liner for your eyebrows. The colour of the wax is a little more neutral while the liquid tint (which is waterproof, might I add, or at least heavy rain proof!!) is very cool-toned and ashy, and also lighter in colour than the wax. I love this product so much due to its versatility; I can use the liquid tint for a 'no-make-up' look or go full on with the wax for a night out of much heavier make-up. However, for everyday I have a super quick two step method that I use. Firstly, I run through my whole brow the the tint evenly, getting the shape right and then giving it a little colour. On top I then very lightly run the wax over the top in small, hair like strokes, starting at the ends of my eyebrow and slowly gradient-ing in so that it matches up with the light colour at the front of the eyebrow. I would love to insert a photo to explain this but my eyebrows are in seriously need of a wax (my sister "stole" my tweezers and took them back to university with her...) and so I would be too ashamed to show them on this blog! I do this technique as I've learned (from experience, unfortunately) that it looks more unnatural if you fill in the front of your brow as dark as the end, and most natural brows tend to gradient in colour from slightly lighter to slightly darker. Soap and Glory are coming out with a new brow palette soon which I am very tempted to try as I love this product so much. The only downfall, I would say, is the shade range which is exceptionally small at only two shades. My shade, "Love Is Blonde", would only suit natural blondes who have darker roots or those who ombre their hair blonde, and the dark chocolate colour would be too light for anyone with very dark or black hair. As for red/auburn/ginger hair, there is no option (yet?).

The Soap and Glory Brow Archery Tint and Pencil retails for £10 at Boots and Superdrug.
