      Disadvantages

      Thanks for Reading :)

      I am a bit of plucker! I seem to be a tad addicted to plucking my eyebrows, as I am never 100 % happy with the shape and look, so when I heard some friends recommend the Soap & Glory Arch de Triumph Brow Shaper, I was very much interested in trying this and hoping it could help make my eyebrows look more stylish yet natural at the same time!.



      ==PRICE==


      I purchased the Soap & Glory Brow Shaper from my local Boots store for around £7.50. The price is somewhat reasonable for this type of product, plus with a brand like Soap & Glory I new that the quality will be of a high standard as I have tried many other quality products from this range.



      ==MY EXPERIENCE==


      The pencil shade of colour is a medium brown colour and because of this is perfect for matching the colour of my eyebrows, however this would be a problem if someone with black dark hair or blonde hair purchased this. I don't think they have different pencil brow colours available in the range, which is a shame and I am not sure why this is.


      I found that the eyebrow pencil to be very easy to grip onto and remain steady during application, my eyebrows looked more defined and neat after using it. I was often afraid that using such a product would make me look a bit tacky, however that was far from true, instead it made my eyebrows look quite natural and I was very pleased with the end result.


      A great plus about this eye brow shaper is that is comes with three stencils to aid you in making perfect shaped eyebrows, I used these a few times and after a while I didn't need them anymore as I began to get to used using the pencil without them due to having mastered my desired eyebrow shape.


      To use this pencil I first plucked my eyebrows into the shape of one of the stencils, the stencil gave a clear outline and shape to help guide me. I then applied a bit of highlighter just below my brows and then using the pencil I filled in the gaps and gently spreading the colour in with my brows and finish it off with a bit more highlighter pencil to give a nice finished look.


      I have been very happy with the finished look that this eyebrow shaper gives, the pencil holds quality colour that really gives off a great natural look that really lets the natural beauty of your face shine through.


      ==VERDICT==


      Overall I would recommend this to all women with medium brown coloured eye brows, as it is a great little handy tool in aiding the adjustment of shape and providing definition of the eyebrows, and with Soap & Glory you know you going to quality for the money.


      Therefore my overall rating for this product is a 10/10.

        Disadvantages

        An eyebrow pencil which lifts the brows and gives them shape

        I wear a lot of make up but I don't really do much with my eyebrows. I know a lot of my friends and a huge number of celebrities colour in their eyebrows but as mine are dark in colour, I've never really bothered. I thought it was time that I gave it a try and so I bought the Arc h De Triumph by Soap & Glory.

        What does the product do?
        The product has been designed in order to shape and lift the eyebrows to leave with beautiful brows in an instant which also draws attention to your eyes by colouring and highlighting. The product comes with an instruction booklet to show you how to apply the product professionally.

        How do you use the product?
        The booklet shows you how to mark out where the beginning and the end of your brow should be and also where the arch should be. You are then instructed to join the marks together using light and feathery strokes using the coloured side of the pencil. You then use the other side of the pencil to draw on the brow bone which will act as a highlighter to light and accentuate the shape of your eyebrows.

        Packaging and Price
        The product looks like the average eye brow pencil except this one is double ended. Half the pencil is a brown colour and the other half is a pink colour. The product name is written along the length of it. Both sides are protected by a clear cap. The product will cost you around £8 per pencil and it can be bought from stores such as Boots and also from a range of online websites.

        Application and Performance
        The brown side of the pencil is quite hard the first time that you use and also just before you use it each time. I tend to warm the nib between my fingers before started. It is easy to draw the pencil onto the eyebrow and the colour comes off well. I love the colour because it looks so natural, even though my eyebrows are a lot darker than the colour of the pencil itself. You can't really see that your wearing it. It seems to just shade in the background which makes your eyebrows look fuller rather than making you look like you've drawn your eyebrows on which is a look that I don't like. It is gentle on the skin and it doesn't pull or drag my skin as you apply it. You do need to sharpen this pencil so you need to make sure that you haven't got any little bits left on it that may scratch you skin.

        The highlighter side has a more creamy consistency that the brown part so it does glide easier over the skin. It apply some of the product just beneath my eyebrow on the brow bone and then blend it in using my fingers. It does open the eyes up straight away and it does lift your brow nicely. The product is perfect for day wear as it is very natural looking but it may not be enough for evening wear if you like the done up look. The product is long lasting and it will still be in place when I get home from work. It doesn't run or smudge which is a really good thing because that would look ridiculous! It hasn't irritated my skin in any way and it is easily removed at the end of the day using my usual make up remover.

        Conclusion
        All in all, this is a brilliant product which gives your natural looking eye brows. It helps to add colour to the eyebrow and to give them shape but in a natural way. It is easy to use, gentle on the skin and really enhances both my eyes and my eyebrows. The product will last for a really long time too. I have been converted by this product and I would recommend it to anyone who asks!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Pretty good

        I have mixed feelings about this eyebrow pencil.

        I had seen it recommended somewhere so when I spotted it in Boots I thought I would give it a while despite it being fairly pricey at about £8.

        It consists of one end which is brown to colour & shape your brows and the other end which is a highlighter to apply under your brows for lift. It is quite a chunky pencil which I quite like but for some reason when I sharpen it in my make up pencil sharpener it doesn't seem to sharpen it very sharp! I'm sure it isn't my sharpener as it works fine with everything else, this just seems an odd size or something. Anyway......

        The brown colour is maybe not quite dark enough for my brows and I would have liked it a shade darker, but at the time I bought it it was either only available in the one colour or this was the only colour left. I found it easy to use and found that it worked really well when I first bought it, but since sharpening it since and it always seeming a bit blunt right on the tip it hasn't worked as well. The highlighter is fantastic, it really makes that bit of difference to my eyebrows, though it is tricky to rub in so don't cake too much on!

        I nearly really loved this product, but in order for it to be perfect I would like a choice of colours and also to be able to keep the brown pencil sharp (which may be down to user error!). I will persevere though & buy a new sharpener just in case!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        I use it everyday- it's an essential!

        I love soap and glory and with this product they do not disappoint. I am on my second now, it works well and is incredibly easy to use. The box itself came with instructions and example eyebrow pop out shapes, which did not work so well but I feel may have been more of a novelty.
        The highlighter is great and subtle if blended well, although this can take a little time if in a rush! My eyebrows are incredibly difficult and quite patchy, the pencil is great for this as it seems to smooth them as well as filling the patches!
        The only downside with the pencil is that it is very hard, almost sharp feeling- even after blunting it slightly on my sink- this makes it a little painful when you are trying to achieve a deeper colour/ coverage. However, I do not think that this would be an issue if your eyebrows just need a little shaping help.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Is good enough!

        I was bought this as a Christmas present, as everyone knows I'm a huge fan of the Soap and Glory brand and it was probably one of the few products I didn't already own.

        At first I thought I'd probably never use it, as I never used to do anything to my brows, and if I did try to pencil them, I'd look a bit clown-like and weird. However, I thought as I'd been bought it, it was the perfect time to explore the world of brow shaping using a brand I knew I could trust.

        The first problem I can envisage with this product is that it only appears to be available in one colour, which is not ideal. As we all know, everyone has different brow colours, and everyone strives to achieve a slightly different colour/effect when using a brow pencil.

        Luckily, this pencil, being mid-brown, is the perfect shade for me. The first couple of times I used it I used it sparingly - and it gave my eyebrows more definition while keeping them looking fairly natural, which was perfect. I'm also a fan of the highlighter on the other end of the pencil - it's a good quality shade which blends in well while still making a bit of difference to the underside of your eyebrows, and using it really does brighten up your whole face.

        On to the second problem - it's quite a thick pencil, meaning that sharpening it with an ordinary pencil sharpener is not an option. If you have a sharpener with two sizes, using the bigger size generally works but sometimes even that is not big enough.

        I'm nearly down to the end of this pencil now, which is unusual for me as I tend to lose/get bored of these type of makeup products. At around £7 it is quite expensive, and if you're looking for a dramatic, bold, look, this pencil isn't quite strong enough for that, but for giving a bit of definition it's perfect.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A great easy to use product for professional looking results.

        I picked this up in Boots despite the price tag (around £8) as I truly believe that the brows are the frame to your face and can make such a difference to how you look overall if they look professionally shaped and coloured. However, I have very dark eyebrows that I find quite hard to tame into a sophisticated looking shape so when I saw this duel eye crayon with professional step by step brow shaping tips included, I thought I would give it a go.

        This thick crayon is divided into two elements, one end is the brow shaper (in a dark brown (taupe) shade) and the other end is the highlighter. The crayon is nice and chunky which allows for easy grip whilst using. The pencils are covered by see through plastic lids and the nibs on the crayon are nice and thick although less so on the taupe end than the highlighter end but this again makes for easy and precise use.

        The packaging is cardboard and the crayon itself comes in a retangular tube which is attached to quite a large square card. One might think that this is excessive packaging but the reason behind this is the detailed step by step professional tips written on the reverse of the card as to how to obtain the perfect brow shape. The front of the card shows a photo of a perfectly enhanced eyebrow to give you an idea of what you are aiming for perhaps?

        I won't tell you how they say to perfect the shape of the brow verbatium, suffice to say that the first steps entail using a pencil to ascertain where the inside point of your brows should start, where they should end and where the arch should figure between these two points, making three essential points in total.

        These three points should then be joined together with light, feathery strokes of the taupe end of the crayon. Any hairs that remain outside of the three point range should be tweezed away.

        The highlighted end should then be used on the brow bone just under the peak of your arch and smudged to blend so that it does not look too obvious. Soap & Glory say this will help to lift, light, accentuate and shape your brow (all without going under the kinfe)!

        I have yet to follow the professional steps yet but I have used the product on one brow to see how it looks compared to an unmade up brow.

        Personally because my eye brows are so dark and relatively thick anyway I don't need the taupe end to fill in or darken my brow overly but what this does do is get the hairs more uniform and all going the same way and the browline is smoothed down so my eyebrows instantly look more neat and the shape is better defined and any little gaps between hairs are filled. The nib on the taupe end is much smaller than the nib on the end of the highlighter and allows for precise strokes to be used which means my brows don't look too over done or false.

        The nib on the highlighter end is much thicker and allows a good amount of highlighter to be desposited under the brow bone with one stroke. I then smudge and blend this in with one finger. This does a lovely job of highlighting the arched area and does give an instant lift.

        I must say that the results are very good and the difference this makes to the browline and shape of the brow even without following the initial eyebrow shaping tips is really quite professional looking and apparent. I will definintely be adding this to my beauty routine as usually I just brush a little gel onto my brows to keep them in place but especially for nights out I will use both elements of this crayon as I really do feel it makes a worthwhile difference.

        If you have issues with your brows, despite the price tag I would recommend this productt which I suspect will last a long time so worth the cost overall.

        Thanks for reading. x

        Disadvantages

        easy to use, blends well

        If you're anything like me you're a little too dark for a blonde pencil but too fair for a dark one? This pencil is the answer!! It is a two ended wonder - the highlighting end gives a lovely luminescent sheen under the brows ( and can be used anywhere else too!) It can be a little hard but if softened it is easy to apply. The other end is the total wonder though - a soft, easy to apply wax type pencil that blends in with your own natural brow colour to define and tidy up. It's the first and only pencil I've been able to use and not look like I've been drawing with mummy's make-up! The texture is gentle, doesn't pull your skin and is blendable so you don't see a 'line' of pencil, even close up.I would really recommend this product to anyone - and will definately be buying it again when the time comes!

        Arch de Triumph!

        I am a big fan of soap and glory so was very happy when I recieved many of their items for christmas. One of the items I recieved was the Arc deTriumph. I had wanted this for a while, but it does cost around £8 and for an eyebrow pencil I thought this was too much for me just to go out and buy one to try it, so was very happy to recieve it.

        All soap and Glory products are exclusive to Boots. As I have said it costs around £8, though at christmas they did a set containing this item, along with the trick or treatment, some false lashes, sexy mother pucker and a make up bag. This set originally cost £20, so if you can get it in the half price sale at the moment for £10, then you are getting a much better deal than buying it on its own.

        The Arch de Triumph is double ended, one end with the eyebrow pencil and the other with has the highlighter. There are clear lids on either end so you can detect which one you are using, though it is easy to tell this just be looking at. This is because the eyebrow pencil end has a brown colooured end and the highlighter has a pearly pink end.

        I have naturally quite dark eyebrows, very close to black and to look at the eyebrow pencil just looks like a normal brown colour and that it wouldn't be dark enough. However, I was pleased to see that when used it did come out much darker than you would have expected it to, which may not be so good if you have naturally light eyebrows.
        The eyebrow pencil itself is rounded off into a point, meaning it is easier to use for precision, whereas the highlighter has a much rounder, flatter surface for blending. They eyebrow pencil, at first, was a little difficult to use as it was very hard and didn't blend well with my eyebrows. I found that I had to keep going over my eyebrows in order to achieve a decent look, though, with daily use this became a lot easier to do. I think that the difficulty at first may have just been because it was new and after I used it once or twice it became softer and in such it became easier to blend and to use.

        The highlighter was a very different story to the eyebrow pencil, it was extremley soft and came out very easily. As I have previously mentioned, this end was much larger and so covered a larger area than the eyebrow pencil, meaning I didn't have to keep going over it.
        This was very creamy to use and on the skin looked a pearly white colour, just as you'd expect a highlighter to look. I did find that this did need blending a little though as it was very obvious and white underneath my eyebrow. I simply used a small make up brush in order to do this and this looks much better than if I had just left it.

        Overall I was very pleased with the look, it had added definition to my eyebrows and highlighting the underneath of my eyebrow made my eyes look larger and more awake, as well as being able to frame the brow, which gave it a cleaner shape in order to fame my face.
        The eyebrow pencil was dark, however it did match my eyebrows so in no way did it stand out and look ridiculous and in no way did it make my eyebrows look big and fat like ugly slugs! There is often a tester out in Boots for this, so I would test the colour of the eyebrow pencil first as I am pretty sure they only sell it in one colour and you'll be stuck with it if it doesn't match.

        The Arch de Triumph itself is very comfortable to use and fits in my hand easily, I think this may be due to the fact that it is slightly fatter / bigger than other eyebrow pencils, meaning I had more control over what I was doing. The eyebrow pencil is also a littler shorter than some others, meaning that it should easily fit into most make up bags.

        This item, should you buy it on its own, also comes with 'eyebrow templates' which are basically templates of different eyebrow shapes to show you how to achieve this / what shapes eyebrows you could have. I personally didn't use this as I am happy with the shape of my eyebrows, though this may be useful for those of you wou want to reshape or just start again with your eyebrows.

        I will definitley continue to use this item as I really like the finished look, it is able to define my eyebrows and the highlighter definitley allows the shape of my eyebrows to look cleaner and shaper. This is something I would definitley reccomend, but I think it is most suited to those of you that have darker eyebrows as I think it would look to dark and out of place on lighter eyebrows.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A really good product - recommended :)

          Arch de Triumph

          I received a boots gift card for my birthday and this is one of the things I got. I have been looking at getting this for a while but was unsure about it, but Im glad that I got it. I LOVE the soap and glory brand, they make great products such as the flake away scrub and the packaging is also super cute and kind of retro too.

          *About the product*
          This product is a double ended 'two step shaping and high lightening crayon for instantly beautiful brows'. On one end it has a medium brown pencil and on the other it has a pearly shimmery pink/cream colour.

          It also comes with 'professional step by step brow shaping tips', which I first thought would be inside the card board it comes in or something, but it is just the short paragraph and diagram on the back - which I guess would be useful to someone who is unfamiliar to make up or something.

          *My opinion on the product*
          Firstly I love the packaging, I like all of the soap and glory product packaging, but this one is really cute! It is in the classic pink, cram and black of the other soap and glory products and the actual pencil looks super cute too.

          Before I bought it, I though the pencil would be like a normal eyeliner in size - slim and small, but is a big and chunky which I like as it is easy to control and it makes it look even cuter.

          I have quite dark eyebrows and I thought that the brow shaper end would be too light, but it is not, but I think it may be too dark for people with light brown hair. Also they don't make them in other shades, for people with black/light/red hair colours.

          The brow shaper is easy to use and it is easy to control and it makes filling in brows quick and effortless. And if you are unsure about what to do or how to get the right shape the instructions are on the back but for people who have used products like this before, I don't find it to be very useful.

          The high lighter is on the other end of the crayon, so it still as the same packaging as the other end. It is a light shimmery pinky white, which I do find it be a bit too light for my skin and if I don't blend it, it just looks really strange as there is just a random pink/white line under my brows. So I think it would be better if the highlighter was made more subtle - but other than that it is a really good product.

          I bought this with my giftcard and it was £7.50 which I think is a tiny bit too expensive for the product. It is available at boots and online but I don't think it is sold anywhere else.

          Conclusions
          Good points
          *Good brow shaper as it fills in, evens out and defines my brows
          *Easy to use, apply and blend if needed
          *The highlighter is also easy to use - but just remember to blend it as it will look very odd otherwise!
          *Very very cute packaging
          *Chunky crayon easy to control
          *Made in the UK and their products are not tested on animals
          *Good brand
          *Shaping tips on the back

          Bad points
          *A tiny bit too expensive for what it actually is - but it does work well
          *High lighter really needs blending - I think it would be better if the high lighter was made to be more subtle
          *Only one brow shaper shade - none for black/red/lighter hair colours

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Great For Thickening Sparse Eyebrows.....Or Drawing Non Existent Ones Back On!

          Arch De Triumph 2 in 1 Brow shaper and highlighter is yet another genius product from my new favourite brand Soap and Glory!!

          So, everyone knows perfectly groomed and shaped eyebrows can change both the look and shape of your entire face! and whilst some of us my be blessed with thick and full eyebrows that can simply be plucked or waxed into whatever shape or style your heart desires, not all of us are that lucky :( My eyebrows are sparse and fair and given that i dye my naturally fair hair dark brown and use so much mascara i look like spiders are resting on my eyelids.... my eyebrows are barely visible!

          I had been looking for an eyebrow crayon for some time but i never purchased out of fear of looking like a tranny :/ But, when i saw this two step shading and highlighting crayon included in a 3 4 2 offer in my local boots i thought why not goive it a go, after all Soap and Glory have never let me down before and im glad to report thay have yet to do so!!

          The product comes with a selection of 3 eyebrow stencils in different shapes to aid you in creating the perfect brow... I however didnt find these useful as they didn't really match my current eyebrow shape and had i plucked my eyebrows into the shape they recommended i would have ended up looking like an alien! Which given i had just bought an eyebrow pencil wouldnt have been the end of the world , but still i would like some natural hair left!

          So this is how i used the product step by step.

          Step1: Pluck eyebrows into desired shape (using given stencils if you feel they are the look you are goin for, if like me they were just too high then pluck as normal )

          Step 2: colour a little highlighter underneath the brows.

          Step 3: Gently fill in eyebrows where needed, smudging as you go but making sure you dont colour over the highlighter or go too far away from your natural brows. (I find it easier to colour a little bit then step back from the mirror to check your not going into drag queen territory before continuing)

          Step 4: Gently smudge highlighter under the eyebrows to give that bright eyed look. And there you have it perfectly groomed eyebrows!!

          Soap and Glory: Arch De Triumph is available from Boots for £7.50 but i usually purchase as a part of the three for two offer which boots seems to offer every other week, and lucky for you is offering online right now on this product!!!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Overall an excellen product that shades and holds brows all day long- love it!

            I bought this after being sucked in by the packaging of a few other Soap and Glory items. With it's pale pink and brownish black pencil, this product is comparable to an Anastasia eyebrown pencil I've seen in America. I used this for the first time last week and am extremely impressed. I used the pencil side first to shade my eyebrows and fill in sparse spots and I have to say the pencil did a good job. I have black hair but what I really like about this product is that the colour is not a pure harsh black and so provides a really natural looking colour not as harsh as some other plain black eyebrow pencils. I noticed straight away that this meant my eyebrows were groomed but it looked like they were naturally that way it honestly didn't look like I had just filled them. Also, the pencil side has a slightly waxy texture which means you grooom your brows as you go and this pencil was absoloutely fantastic in holding my brows in place all day which means no more brow gel! The highlighter side however, is not that great. It's nice for a very subtle effect if you use just a touch of it but it's also a little chalky in consistency and so say if you have dry eye area skin, this highlighter would basically highlight it! Not a great effect! I skip the highlighter side as it's useless for me, but I am really loving the pencil side, excellent colour pay off, really good waxy consistency with a natural colour which all work to give one great result with just one pencil! However, I've noticed that the pencil side also contains small particles of glitter- now this isn't a major problem as we are in glorious weather and a little shimmer doesn't hurt- however, come winter I'm sure I'd look very silly with small glitter particles through my brows, so I may need to keep this especially for summer use. I've had no problems with sharpening this pencil altough you do need to use a good sharp large sharpener to achieve a sharp point again. Overall I'd have to say Soap and Glory have hit the nail on the head with this one, and if just for a natural summer look, I'd happily re-purchase!

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            I got this and loved it instantly, I wore it out on New Years Eve and felt very glam, and I got loads of compliments about my new shapely brows! But after a couple of uses, the pencil got blunt, and I tried to sharpen it, but the pencil all crumbled and it was rendered useless. I have tried allsorts of different sharpeners, including sharp knives, but it's pointless...literally. Now I can only use the highlighter side. I won't be buying another one, it's not worth all that money to be used 3 times, maximum.

            Great for creating and enhancing strong, defined eyebrows

            As we know, full, strong, groomed eyebrows are back. That's great, however, thanks to the last 10 years of tweezed-within-an-inch-of-their-life brow look that was oh so popular, mine, whilst still being fairly thick, are considerably more sparse than I would like. No amount of promising I won't rip them all out again will persuade my lost eyebrow hairs to make an appearance. Enter...Soap and Glory Arch De Triumph!

            It is a double ended pencil, the brown end being an eyebrow pencil, and the pink a highlighter, two products essential for getting that really strong and groomed brow look.

            The eyebrow pencil is fantastic. If you are lacking in the brow department, you can just draw them in, and if you already have fairly thick eyebrows, this helps to make them look a little thicker, and more defined. It's a really great shade, it won't look to dark on those with fair hair, but is dark enough to define people who have dark hair's brows. It's quite hard, so it's difficult to go overboard with it (never a good look), but it goes on well, and is easy to control where you are drawing.

            The highlighter is lovely, it's a very shimmery (not glittery thank god) pinky white colour, and if you put in just under your brows, it defines them even more. It goes on really easily, so you won't have to press hard at all on that delicate eye area. I can't think of a skintone this wouldn't suit, it's not too strong so won't look too much. I also like to use this to highlight other areas of my face, namely cheekbones, inner eyes, and upper lip, try and blunt the pencil a little first though for the cheekbones.

            It costs around £6 or £7 I think (I got mine in a giftset, so check with stockists!), but it will last for a long time. Brows are so important, they can make or break a look, and having the right brow shape can really make your face look so much better! This product is great for defining those brows, so I would definitely recommend it.

            A Fantastic way to get eye cathcingly defined eyebrows!

            I don't know how my eye brows survived before this!!!! Absolutely fantastic, its the quick and easy way to have your eyebrows looking groomed, highlighted and sexy!!
            I like to keep my eyebrows groomed although I have to admit I can be quite lazy about it. This eyebrow pencil is therefore great for me!
            One end is the eyebrow pencil , the other a highlighting pencil.
            Using the eyebrow pencil end first to define and shade the natural brow, its quick and easy to use. I normally hate eyebrow pencils as its difficult to find a good shade for my eyebrows and often they can look too 'drawn on'. However the shade for this pencil is great, not too dark and is very subtle. I like the fact it is a really wide pencil rather than the thinner alternatives which means its easier to sweep over your brows and you are less likely to get an actual 'line' where you have drawn.

            The higlighter end you use to gently pencil in under the line of your brow to give you definition and create a fantastic arch. It really does work. Its a subtle shade, although there is emphasis on the word gentle - I found if you draw it on too hard you will get a visible white line. although nothing that a little finger blending won't fix.

            All in all a handy, easy way to have your eyebrows looking fabulous in no time!

            Soap & Glory Arch de Triumph Brow Shaper x0

            Oh Woop! Dooyoo have finally got round to accepting one of my product suggestions :)
            So as you may have noticed it's another Soap & Glory product review to add to the millions (okay I like to exaggerate!) I have already written. So we women all know that it is your eyebrows that give your face shape and overall definition but they are probably one thing we dont actually pay that much attention to. Im a tweezer addict and if I have to admit it my eyebrows are practically none existent just a little line and everyone always tells me I should let them grow out a little bit. However I hate looking like I havent plucked my brows and I needed a quick fix to make then look slightly bigger without having to wait, as I am very impatient. And thats where this product came in my friend bought me this for my brithday as she was so sick of my tiny brows hehe. Now Ive never used anything like this before so I thought Id end up looking really stupid but now after using it everyday since Im starting to wonder how I ever lived without it!!

            What Is It?
            Arch De Triumph is a doublesided eyebrow pencil. One side is your eyebrow pencil and the other is a highlighter but now you also get brow stencils with the kit, and they just make the whole process SOOO much easier!

            Who Is It Designed For?:
            Well it is specifically designed for people like me who have maybe just gone slightly over the top when plucking their eyebrows and want them back!

            How Do You Use It?
            There is two ways that you can use this pencil.
            1. With the stencil:
            You simply pick a stencil from the set (whichever one you feel will look best on your face) attach it to the brow and begin to draw lines with the pencil, following the natural shape of your brows so they dont look to fake and drawn on.

            2. With the stencil:
            This way is the same as the one above but instead of having a certain shape to draw you are doing it freehand which in many ways is A LOT harder!

            The Highlighter:
            All you do with this is simply put a tiny bit underneath your brows and this will make then stand out a lot more and leave your face looking a lot more definined.

            This product is pretty simply to use once you know how, I would say have a few practice goes first just in case you leave the house looking like a child's painting (: hehe

            Overall Opinion::
            Foe those women out there that just love looking like they have spent hours on their make-up when they have infact spent about five minutes then this product is the one for you!! I like the fact that there is now a stencil kit included within this packet because that just makes the whole application process a whole lot easier and makes certain that both those brows match in size and shape, something which is harder to achieve wwhen your doing it freehand! Its easy to use and actually looks natural because unlike a few eyebrow products Ive tested the pencil isnt to heavy but just gives you a nice finish. The highlighter is amazing as well, I was wondering what on earth it could possbily do to make them look any nicer but it just helps to finish the overall look and gives a nice "matte" look.
            In conclusion this product is amazing, I highly recommend, this will definatley become a must have beauty item.

            You can get this product online at boots.com for £7.50 so well worth the money in my opinion & should you have an advantage card you can collect 28 points with this purchase!!
