Filling in the eyebrows is a necessity for some, me included and as much as I love my Anastasia Dipbrow Pomade (review here) there's nothing better then a cheap high street product that's there to assist for a quick and easy look on the more 'natural' days. This is where the Soap & Glory Archery Brow Tint and Precision Pencil comes in.
When I think Soap & Glory my mind instantly alludes to there amazing body scrubs and miracle working, moisturisers but the brand also do really good quality make up for a decent price. I have already written one review on a S&G lipstick (here) which wowed me with it's amazing pigmentation and beautiful colour. This eyebrow pencil was no different when it comes to quality. I picked this up on a whim and had read little reviews on it and if I'm honest I wasn't expecting much. It was the Brow Tint that interested me mainly about this product as a felt a more staining formula would be ideal for long-lasting brows. As low as my expectations were, this product exceeded them completely. A double ended stick with the tint on one end and a waxy, crayon-like pencil on the other makes the perfect team for full, precise eyebrows.
The revolutionary idea of this product is that you brush-on the coloured stain to create the fuller, -no-gapped effect and then perfect the shape with the crayon therefore manipulating your brows to achieve the exact look you want. The overall look appears more natural then most but the felt-tip end can be easily builded to create a more harsh contrast. As both ends are really fine there's no need to worry about filling in the brows too thick or over-doing the shape which is always a relieving thought.
Having very dark eyebrows I bought mine in the colour Brownie Points, a slightly too light shade which is where the main negative becomes apparent. The pencil only come in two shades including this and Love is Blonde. This makes it very difficult for a vast variety of people who wish to use this product as there's a high chance that the colours will not match. Something I hope S&G will improve on. Nevertheless, priced at £10 it really is a more affordable alternative to some of the high end brow products which makes it hard to argue with.

All in all, another great product from Soap & Glory, a cosmetics company that is swiftly making itself my almost, go-to brand when it comes to finding good quality products for an affordable price. I can't wait to try out more of their cosmetic items especially there Kick Ass Concealer.
