So I messed up recently.
In my eagerness to reorder the Soap & Glory Eyes Box in Boots’ half price sale, I failed to realise that I wasn’t receiving my beloved tint and crayon, and was instead receiving a mascara and crayon. In similar packaging. With similar names. Genius.
Once I restarted my heart from the initial panic of being stuck with something I didn’t want, I figured I was pretty excited to try the Archery 2-in-1 in Brownie Points out.
I absolutely love the packaging; it’s pretty damn nifty, but it does have a design flaw in that the twist mechanism on the crayon end is so hard to avoid when actually applying it. Try harder Soap & Glory.
The pencil is shaped so that it keeps a fine point for filling in smaller areas and a broader base for covering lots of ground at once, which is very similar to how Benefit designed their Goof-Proof Brow Pencil, but I really prefer the formula of this as it’s much less waxy.
Unfortunately that does mean you have to work a bit harder to get it to show up; the swatch above required going over multiple times and as with any brow pencil, drawing in individual hairs is a no go. But the end result is softer, far more natural looking and rather flattering.
The real star of the show however is the brow gel. Never have I experienced hold like this! The product is so quick to apply but makes you look so much more put together instantly. I have never been a fan of brow gels but I feel naked without this product now.
I struggle creating natural looking tails on my brows with this product because I have very few hairs there and that’s why I probably wouldn’t buy this product again. But the start of my brows look amazingly full, yet almost completely natural.
If only Soap & Glory would have paired the gel with the tint, they would have created the perfect brow product.
But they didn’t. So nevermind.
