If you asked me when I was 18 what my absolute MUST HAVE makeup item was, I would’ve answered pressed powder. That’s actually hilarious considering I had great skin, yet I insisted upon wearing full coverage makeup. Fast forward a few years, I would’ve answered black eyeliner that I rimmed around my entire eye. Five years ago, I would’ve answered under eye concealer. Heck, I’d still answer under eye concealer! But if I could only wear one makeup item at all during my day, my top dog product would be an eyebrow definer.

I have been testing out the Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil for the past couple weeks, and I have to say I am LOVING these pencils for a soft brow look. If you are looking for something with the benefits of a powder, pencil and a wax, then look no further.

There are two ends- one is a triangular shaped tip for precision, and the other end is a brush for softening the lines you create with the tip. I have found these super easy to control during application, and it’s hard to overdo them in color. I never get a harsh brow with this, it’s a super soft and natural look, yet still precise. I’m able to get the definition of a pencil, the fullness of a powder, and the staying power of a wax.

The two shades I tried were Warm Blonde and Soft Brunette. I was surprised to see that a blonde shade worked really well for me. The two shades are almost exactly the same, except for Warm Blonde leans a little warmer and Soft Brunette leans a little cooler. I have been using them both interchangeably, and sometimes I’ll layer the both. In the picture below, I’m just wearing Soft Brunette.

Their Ambient Lighting Powder and Ambient Lighting Blush (review/buy) are other favorites of mine. I’ve also gotten a lot of mileage out of their primer. I can’t wait to check out their holiday offerings this year!

    I’ve only recently realized how much I need help with my brows. They used to be full enough that I didn’t worry about them. Now I wonder if I waited too long. The Hourglass sound wonderful.

    If I had extra cash, I’d buy one of these in auburn in a heartbeat. I love that they have the built-in slant brush and spoolie, and it looks like they actually have a shade that would work for me. Maybe during the Sephora sale

    I’m not even done with my first one of this yet and I already bought a back-up AND have taken 3 people to Sephora to show them. They all bought it. It’s SO GOOD.
