I loooooove Soap & Glory brow archery, couldn't recommend it more. First 'pencil' product I've tried as I always thought I'd be better with powder.
Comes with a pencil side + a fine line side, both stay on all day without fail. Also heard it's a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hills brow pencils (can't remember the name) - tried the ABH dipbrow + it's far too much hard work for me to bother with regularly.
Can't comment on colour selection just yet as I've only used the light brown colour that came with a soap & glory set I was given for Xmas but definitely go into boots + have a look
MUA brand, in Superdrug. They do a little palette in two shades, one is fair/brown, the other is darker. The fairer one is what I use, it's ace. Has a little thingy of wax to tame the brows as well as the colours & highlighter, and cheap as chips.
I couldn't get the L'oreal brow mascara - they oly had the lightest colour left -in both boots and superdrug.
So I bought a MUA Brow Define. It's way too dark for me. Plus so much comes of the brush at a time it's impossible to control. luckily it was cheap. As allthreeways says - a pair of black caterpillars.
Also picked up a powder kit by Collection That was a palette of three shades of powder with a clear brush on gel. That wasn't too bad - and I got a not too bad result.
Ended up going to the salon and got them tinted. Much, much better effect in the end.
Thanks for all the suggestions.
I think it is one of those areas that are so different for everyone - and it's tricky to find just the right product for complexion, volume and shape of brows.
You can get gimme brow in a darker shade My eyebrows are dark and ive used this. Ive also got benefit brow zings which always gets good reviews. Would you not get yours tinted? Although mine are darkish I still get them tinted and when they are first done it looks better than any filler-in.
