Oh, brows. Some, like mine, resemble a caterpillar-esque growth exuding above my eye socket. Others deal with a single straight line that just n e v e r grows in. Debatably being the most high maintenance area on our bodies, we pluck, tweeze, wax, and shave (precariously) to keep them in tip top shape.
If you're anything like me, the common mishap is a
On the whole, I can't complain about my brows too much. Despite lacking in the length department, they maintain a pretty satisfactory appearance on the whole. Nevertheless, a sweep of pencil here and there maintains a tip-top shape appearance.
And this is where I mention the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette. The double ended sword contains a spoolie on one end and a triangular shaped, quite thick, pencil on the other--encased in some serious luxe packaging, might I add.
Because of the triangular shape, the pencil allows for a quick draw with the skinny side to add some length, or a few marks with the thicker side to add some fullness. As for the texture, the waxy pencil mends a brow gel like fashion with a tint, meaning that your brows will have some staying power (as in all. day), but with a natural, non-crunchy feel. Then, consider how this same texture transfers to the application. Not too soft, and not too hard, it means that, first, you won't end up with brows up to your temples, but, second, won't have to exert a body builder-esque force just to get some brows on.
Stating the obvious here, but there are three ladies who initiated an Hourglass brow purchase: Anna, Kate, and Estée (quelle surprise). Coincidental, in fact, that all of the aforementioned ladies raved about the same thing when it came to this pencil: the color match. Despite all having completely different hair colors (and mine varying from the rest, as well), despite the shade we all picked up, the color match was spot on. Seeing as I usually have to add a few lonely strokes (as in not enclosed by my usual brow hairs) on the ends, meaning that the color is
So maybe you're a tadpole brow gal, a yarn's thickness, or a bushy betty. Whatever you are, you could use some filling in, but now you know where to look....
