New! Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pen


I will admit it, I am usually awful at brow pencils. I tend to find them too heavy and they overpower my eyebrows leaving me looking like I have stage makeup on. I has the chance to try the new Hourglass Arch Brow sculpting pen a mixture of a pencil,  powder and wax all in one. There was hope this might finally be the pencil for me.

First thing I noticed was the unusual triangle shape which made it much easier to work with and sculpt a shape into my eyebrows. The formula itself is fantastic, its very buildable and was easy to fill in my eyebrows and create definition without losing the natural look.

As you can see below my eyebrows have lots of light blonde and are fairly thin. So light they tend to dissappear in photos and heck daylight. The bottom look my “after” shows how great this pencil is for defining my brows but still mainting a natural shade. On top of being easy to use I love that this stays put all day, no disappearing eyebrows!

If you’re looking for a new brow pencil you have to check out the Arch Brow Sculpting Pen, you won’t be disappointed.
