REVIEW: Soap and Glory Arch de Triumph Brow Crayon


I picked this up as part of my mini Advantage Card points haul last week. As is the custom with Soap and Glory products the packaging is cute and quirky, and this particular product comes complete with 3 eyebrow stencils. I didn’t think a huge amount to these as you had to detach them from the back of the packaging without ripping them (which wasn’t easy) and they were made of fairly flimsy card. In the words of my Nan, they were neither use nor ornament but it was a nice idea.


The product itself is a double ended shaping and highlighting crayon. It only comes in one shade which is a mid-brown hue, so it’s probably useless if you’re incredibly fair or dark. In all honesty I thought it was going to be too dark for me, but I was pleasantly surprised. The brow pencil is quite hard, meaning that to get a decent colour payoff you’d probably end up with bruised eyebrows, but as the colour is quite dark, the lack of payoff is no bad thing (for me at least).


For me though, the highlighter is where this product scores extra brownie points. Instead of being a shiny and glittery, it’s gorgeous and matte, which is exactly what I love in a highlighter. I’ve also used this on my cheekbones and it gives me a kind of glow, rather than the shimmer I’ve grown to dread.


Though this is probably not going to replace the Urban Decay Brow Box as my HG brow product, I’ve fallen in love with the highlighter and it’s pretty handy for chucking in my bag on a night out. Plus, given that it was free (sort of) I can’t really complain too much!





Come on, don't be shy!
