I am somehow who is luckily blessed with a fairly good set of brows. But I still find they can use a little bit of help. Since I’m blonde haired, quite a few fair hairs also pop up in my brows, leaving what looks like gaps and sparse areas where they are in fact not. A little bit of added color in my brows is therefore a must. Some of my favorite products to do that are by Soap & Glory. I already reviewed the Soap & Glory Archery Brow Pencil last year. But when I accidentally picked up the wrong pencil, I decided to give that a review as well.
Soap & Glory Archery Brow Tint & Precision Shaping Pencil Love is Blonde
I’ve been using this product for months now (I think 5+ months easily). In fact, I have nearly run out and I have to say I love this equally as much as the original Archery Brow Pencil. It is slightly more expensive then the pencil version. But at £10.00 it is still half the price of an Anastasia brow product that is similar in what it does. In short, this is a great drugstore dupe, be it that it is available in far fewer shades. Luckily for me, Love is Blonde fits my brows perfectly.
The pencil comes in a simple box that has the name of the product and some instructions on the back. I have no clue how much product you get in this, but what is unique about this product is that it contains both a pencil and a sort of paint brush product that allows you to create a neat bold brow. The only downside is that it doesn’t come with a spooly on the end, meaning you always have to keep a separate one on hand if you wish to brush through your brows.
As you can see this product is a double-ended twist up pencil on one end and a brush on liquid on the other. The brush tip is very small and fine and great for precision work and drawing on hairs as individual brush strokes. The pencil is a bit thicker than the original Archery Brow Pencil’s, but I find that with product, I use the pencil more for filling in than creating a shape. You can of course use the products together as instructed or one or the other if you feel like a more natural brow.
The color of this is spot on. The left swatch is the brow tint. On the right you can see the pencil. The colors go together nicely, aren’t too dark, nor too warm. Especially the brow tint has a cooler undertone which is always a plus when it comes to brow products. I have no need for a red looking brow.

As you can see in the top left picture, my naked brows aren’t that light or sparse. I have quite a dark brow for someone so fair, which is a blessing in disguise. The only thing I do is fill them in a give them a bit more shape. For which I find this product an excellent companion. The tint instantly makes my brow look more defined and gives a more natural look. For a bolder look, I add the pencil on top. Just the pencil gives a softer look, which is why I apply that more toward the tail and beginning of the brow. I finish it off with some brow gel to comb through the hairs and give a more natural finish.
Yes, the Soap & Glory Archery Brow Tint & Pencil is a product that I absolutely love. Do I love it more than just a pencil? Not per se. I sometimes feel that for a daily look, just a pencil will be enough. It doesn’t run out very quickly, gives a good shape and it is easy to vary your brow look with this. If you are looking for a good dupe for the Anastasia Brow Wiz, then Soap & Glory is definitely worth a browse.
