One of my all time favourite drugstore brow products is the Soap and Glory Archery Brow Tint and Pencil, and I also really love the Soap and Glory Archery Brow Filling Pencil and Brush so my interest is instantly piqued by a new addition to their Archery range. The Soap and Glory Archery Brow Sculpting Crayon and Setting Gel £10 is available in three different shades; Blonde Ambition, Brown and Out as well as Dark Chocolate, and I bought the Dark Chocolate shade as it’s the darkest of the three.
The Soap and Glory Archery Brow Sculpting Crayon comes with two ends, one end is an angled brow pencil for precise brow filling and sculpting, and the other is a tinted brow setting gel to keep your brow hairs in place. Soap and Glory recommend using the flat side of the pencil first to fill in and shade the brows, and then follow with the thinner edge to create the perfect arch. Once you’ve filled your brows completely, finish with the tinted brow gel to keep your brow hairs locked in place.
I ordered my Soap and Glory Archery Brow Sculpting Crayon and Setting Gel online from the Boots website, and as you can see in the photo above the pencil side has almost a white coating. Normally a white coating such as this only appears on older brow pencils, but I ordered mine online and it arrived like that? It works absolutely fine as you can see in the swatches above, but a brand new product shouldn’t really have a coating like that. The Dark Chocolate shade is a slightly warm toned, dark brown which does match my brows but it’s a touch too warm so I prefer to use a cooler toned brow gel over the top just to mute the warmth a little as I don’t like my brows to look too reddy toned when my hair is a very dark, almost black brown colour.
The pencil is easy to use, and it’s pretty firm which should mean the pencil keeps it shape without losing its precise edges quickly. I’ve had mine for 7 weeks now, and it still looks relatively new shape wise. I like that I can draw really small, fine hair-like strokes or thick more defined strokes depending which edge of the crayon I use and because the formula isn’t too soft, it doesn’t smudge or transfer either. The only criticism would be the shade range as it’s not particularly inclusive as they’re all warm toned shades, and they don’t go light or dark enough but I’m really enjoying using this pencil when I want to quickly fill my brows. When I want more precision, and have a little more time I prefer to use the Archery Brow Filling micro brow pencil.
