Brow maintenance is basically the bane of my existence. It’s the longest part of my beauty routine. I usually use a fine pencil to create “hairs” and try to get my brows to appear as natural as possible. It’s really never occurred to me to do anything differently. Recently I got the opportunity to try out the new Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil ($32.00 // Sephora) which features a thicker, triangular-shaped, slanted pencil and spoolie.
Nine shades are available and I have two to share today in Soft Brunette and Warm Blonde (which is the one that matched me the best).
At first I was intimidated by this new form of pencil. The tube itself was definitely thicker than what I’m used to gripping and it took me a minute to place the new shape of the pencil how I needed it. One I got that down application was easy. The color of the pencil transferred easily to my skin and the thick, slanted shape cut my brow application time in half. In the end I was left with the full brow look I like and quickly. The pencil lasted all day on my skin until I washed it off in the evening and I didn’t even have to top it with a brow gel since the wax in the pencil held the hairs well enough.
The swatches below are done dry, on bare skin (no primers):
In the look below I’m using the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Warm Blonde on my brows. I posted a preview earlier on my Instagram, so make sure to follow along there if you like sneak peeks 😉
What do you use to fill in your brows?
The Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil retails for $32.00 and it’s available at Sephora and hourglasscosmetics.com.

I love the slant brush on this wand. I have to see if they have a suitable auburn shade for me

Warm brown looks great on you. I would need something ashier and lighter. Is it just me or does the brunette look lighter?

def lighter and ashier!
I am loving the HourGlass products too, love the shade you are using it’s perfect!

This color matches so well with your skin tone and hair color – absolutely gorgeous!
How strong (or long-lasting shall I say) is the tip anyways? Because I’ve tried a bunch of eye sculpting pencils but they dull out.
Thank you! I’ve only used it a few times but I think if you’re conscious of using both sides (the tip and the slant) it should keep shape fairly well. If you go at it and just use the tip part it will definitely dull down.
I have been thinking of trying the Hourglass brow products. I’m in the market for something new.

By the names of the colors I wouldn’t expect the Soft Blonde to be so perfect on you.
