I've briefly mentioned Soap & Glory Arch De Triumph Eyebrow Shaper & Highlighter in my recent drugstore haul post here. I am not a fan of writing negative reviews, because there are so many more fun things to do and write about, but I just really didn't like this product and for the first time in ages I feel like I wasted some hard-earned cash. I admit it was a spur of a moment decision to get it and the main appeal was that the highlighting end looks similar to Benefit High Brow. My current eyebrow shaper has finished, I like Soap & Glory products, so I thought I'd get on with this one perfectly. 

Sadly, I just didn't get on with this one at all. The brow shaper shade is OK, dark brown and blended with my black brows (I have dark blonde hair so the difference of shades was evening itself out). But the formula is really hard to draw with, the tip dries really quickly and it is not smooth sailing at all. What is more, it has some shimmer in it! I am all about makeup experimenting, but I don't want glittery eyebrows every single day. I honestly thought at the beginning that they made some mistake with my batch and the shimmer was supposed to be in the highlighting end... Then I read some reviews and I know now that it is just how they do it. Bizarre! The highlighting end is a little bit smoother, but still hard to blend in (it just 'sits' on my skin) and it's really white. The crayon looks like it has some pink undertones, but in reality it is white and just doesn't work. I guess Benefit High Brow is the one to try. 

There are other Soap & Glory brow products in the Archery Range, so I am planning to give them a go sometime in the future - have you tried any of those?

  5. I find the colour payoff very poor with this pencil, strange as I love all my other soap and glory makeup! Definitely try the other archery pencils or the DIY brow bar from soap and glory they are great!

  10. Oh no! I had such high hopes for this product when I first started reading your review! I recently tried the Soap and Glory 2 in 1 Brow Archery Brow Tint and Eyebrow pencil ... and although I love the concept and the application, the colour I found was just too cold toned for my skin. I have brown eyebrows yet the brown pencil wasn't very warm at all and made my eyebrows look really dark and obvious against my complexion :{ Ill stick to my Rimmel eyebrow pencil or my Collection Eyebrow kit I think!

    1. The shade of brown was fine for me, it's just the quality of the product which didn't deliver at all! :( X

  11. I have this product and I do agree with you! I never use the eyebrow side - for me it just doesnt work at all. I do use the arch highlighter but I am sure to blend it in with my finger - I find the heat from my finger helps to blend it in. I never use too much either - as you say, the tone is quite white xx

  13. Dak Prescott had a chance to win his first NFL start as Dallas, down 20-19, took over at their own 20-yard line with 1:04 left on the clock. The drive fell short eight plays later as wideout Terrance Williams caught a pass in Giants territory but failed to get out bounds in time. The failed one-minute drill doesn't entirely take away from a promising debut for Prescott, who opened the game with scoring drives of 15, 15, 11 and seven plays before the cheap sale jerseys offense was forced to punt. The first half for Dallas served as confirmation that this year's Cowboys are very wholesale jerseys shop much in new nike nfl jerseys play to duplicate their 2014 selves with Prescott at the helm. Hitting 25 of 45 passes for 227 yards, the rookie -- picked NFL Jerseys 134 spots behind Jared Goff -- helped Dallas control the NFL Jerseys ball for 22-plus minutes of the first half. Prescott found eight separate targets and looked comfortable directing the offense. He'd jerseys store like a handful of those throws back, but the former Mississippi State star did a commendable job going through his progressions, finding holes in the defense and putting the ball where his targets had a chance to make plays. This loss falls more on a wanting Dallas defense that couldn't get the Giants off the field in the second half.
