Beauty | Soap & Glory: Archery

29.8.14






Hello beauties! It’s that Soap & Glory time again! I’ll be the first to admit I went a bit mad for it in my Boots Haul, and today I’ll be telling you my thoughts on the Archery Brow Tint and Precision Pencil. It's no secret that I love a dark brow and find it hard to get away from my Illamasqua Eyebrow Cake, but sometimes I fancy a more natural look so I picked this up in the colour ‘Love is Blonde’.

If you watched my Boots Haul video you’ll know that I was so excited about trying this – especially the felt tip end. But I have to be honest and say that I was majorly disappointed and I didn’t love it one bit. The pencil end was fine and gave the same result I’d expect from any old High Street pencil, but the felt tip end was just meh. That’s the only way I can describe it. I didn’t find it improved the fullness of my brows whatsoever, even after using a lot of product! I found there was minimal colour pay off and I was seriously gutted.

I’ll be honest and say that it may have been because I picked the blonde colour and maybe it was too light for me. But my brows aren’t all that dark to begin with so I really thought it would just nicely fill them in!


After reading such rave reviews about this product I have to say I am seriously underwhelmed. Unfortunately this product just wasn’t for me and I will no doubt be sticking to my ever-faithful Illamasqua. Have you guys had better results with Archery than me? xo

EDIT: Since I wrote this I believe S&G have released a new version of Archery that I'm yet to try out. Typical!

  1. I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed by this product, I love it! I actually use the darkest shade (I'm not sure of the name) and it's great for a medium brown colour payoff. I think the felt tip end gives a slightly lighter colour payoff than the pencil end. Maybe you'd be better off with the dark shade as, like I said, it isn't really dark. I use the felt tip to define my brows and get the shape then the pencil end to add the fullness and darken them up. I've recently got the new Rimmel brow gel and that's really good and only £3/4. I think the medium shade would be good for you :)

    1. I know is was so gutted about it! I think if I were to invest again I would go for the darker shade as the pay off with the blonde felt tip is just ridiculous! So faint! I'm using a Maybelline Brow Gel at the minute (which also disappointed me!) so I may have to have a look at that RImmel one. Have you blogged it? xx

  2. That's so weird that you didn't like it, I've seen the product mentioned countless times on the popular YouTube channels!!! I've never tried it, but now I guess I'm a bit scared to go near it haha!

  3. I wish that the United States had more Soap and Glory makeup items! I've never tried this item before but I'm curious since I've seen so many highly raved reviews about this brow product. Thanks for your honest opinion :)

    1. I haven't actually used that much S&G make-up items, mostly shower and skin care and after this product I'm not sure I will! Thanks for commenting :) xx

  4. I tried it, and at first I loved it. But I found the felt tip end dried up quite quickly, leaving me with just a pencil that you can buy similar for a lot cheaper. I've recently swapped to a powder rather than pencil and I find the result much more natural, without sacrificing on colour.

    1. I'm completely with you my Illamasqua product is a powder and I find the pay off a-lot better. Such a disappointment for a product that was so raved about! xx
