Hourglass Arch Sculpting Brow Pencil

Hourglass has been getting a lot of love in the blogging world and I'm no exception to the rule. I bought the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil on a whim from Space NK a few months atop and I've been hooked ever since. The unique formula is a sort of waxy powder which not only adds colour the brows it also tames them and smooths them down.

I run the brush end through my brows, then the pencil part and then brush through again with the wand end to soften. I'm left with naturally filled in tamed brows. I'll be honest as my brows are actually my eyebrows and I don't really fill them in an awful lot as all I need to do is give them a bit of shape in the front and the ends. It has a unique triangular shape to the pencil which means you can sculpt your brows with broad strokes by using the flat edge, as well as mimic fine hairs by using the pointed edge.

Like with all Hourglass products this comes in at a not so cool £26 but I can see myself repurchasing this in the future. I have the shade soft brunette which is nice but I needed somenthing a touch darker as I feel it can be a little ashy on my brows sometimes! In all this is the best brow pencil I've ever used, it smooths tames and shapes beautifully while leaving a natural barely there filled in finish.

  4. my eyebrows look pretty much non existent in some lights as they are so light and so thin and so i'm a little worried about whether i should try filling in my eyebrows in case i suddenly look so different. however, this product just looks so exciting and wonderful that i couldn't pass up on trying it out! maybe then i can make my eyebrows look a little bit more noticeable... ;) X

  9. You've just got amazing brows to start with. I wish I had more of a natural arch to mine, as I don't see products like this working for me, looks amazing on you though!

  27. I've been eyeing up a few of these waxy pencil type things and I think you may have just helped me decide which one to get. Like you, my brows are big and so I treat them like my babies, they deserve a little treat, even though you're quite right about £26 being not so cool. I do think there's a cheaper one by new CID which I may have a play with and do a bit of a comparison :)
    Hope you're well?

  31. I purchased this last week on recommendation at Sephora and I'm completely hooked. My brows have never looked so good and I'll never use another brow pencil or powder other than this one.
