The New Eyebrow Favorite

I quite recently converted to the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil after being a big fan of the Anastasia Brow Wiz. However, I then started using the Anastasia Brow Wiz again + fell back in love. When I was in Boots a month or so again I spotted the Soap & Glory Archery 2-in-1 Brow Filling Pencil & Brush, which I had read was similar + it does look incredibly similar in terms of packaging + the size of the thin nib + brush. This is a lot cheaper than the Anastasia pencil (£8 vs £15.50) so I thought I would give it a go.

First of all, mine is slightly broken. The pencil part actually falls out if I turn it upside down so I do have to be a bit careful, but I'm sure mine is just a bit faulty. My Anastasia pencil is actually broken too, when I take the lid off the brush end, the whole brush comes off with it. But that's not really enough to put me off.

The Anastasia Brow Wiz comes in nine shades, whereas the Soap & Glory only comes in two which is a shame. But! If either shade suits you then this is actually a great alternative. The blonde shade is slightly lighter than my Anastasia one in 'Taupe' but that works fine for me. In terms of application + lasting power, it really is pretty much identical to the Anastasia Brow Wiz. It's got that great little waxy nib which is perfect for creating a natural looking brow + drawing in fake eyebrow hairs. This is by far the best eyebrow pencil I have found in the drugstore + I have been using it everyday since I got it.

  1. I love The Anastasia Brow Wiz so much but it is always great to have a cheaper alternative! Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day xx

  2. I need to check these out and see if there is a decent shade for me out of the two, they sound really good. It's nice to hear the high street has a decent brow pencil available.

  3. This sounds incredible and I definitely want to try Anastasia's offerings as well!

  4. I haven't tried the Brow Wiz. I almost did but then I went for the DipBrow. I like a really dramatic brow xx

  5. I had the Brow Wiz on my WL for ages and I decided to first try the Archery since I've heard they're quite similar dupes. The one problem I have with the Archery is that I think I'll use it up super fast as there's not a lot of product in it. I'll still probably end up buying the Anastasia one, just to see what the hype is all about :)

  6. I've been seeing this around, it does indeed look very similar to the Anastasia one! Unfortunately, neither is available here! Grrr!

  7. I have the Anastasia Brow Wiz and love it - I do however need to try going the Soap and Glory eyebrow pencil a try once my Brow Wiz is all used up x
