Soap and Glory Archery Brow Putty Dip Pot & Brush, £10 | Boots
The Soap and Glory Archery Brow Putty is an exciting new addition to Soap and Glory’s makeup range. A couple of years ago, the original Soap and Glory Archery, took the makeup community by storm with how easy it was to fill in your eyebrows (read my review here). Now, the Archery family welcomes the Brow Putty, and I’m sure this will cause as much buzz as its older sibling did.
The Soap and Glory Archery Brow Putty Dip Pot and Brush is a dual-ended stick with an angled brush on one end and a dipping pot of tinted putty on the other end. There are three shades in the range – Love is Blonde, Brownie Points and Dark Chocolate – and although I have the shade Brownie Points, I think Dark Chocolate would have been a better match for my eyebrows.
Much like the coveted Anastasia Dip Brow Pomade, the putty fills and tame your brows, however the S&G version has the added bonus of a convenient built-in brush. If you’re looking for something which will fill your brows in naturally, making them look soft, subtle and almost diffused, I think the Soap and Glory Archery Brow Putty is worth checking.
I will confess to using and abusing of my favourite method for perfectly filling in my eyebrows, but when I am wearing very little makeup, I feel like I need to tone down my eyebrows. They are naturally dark, but I have gaps which need a quick touch up, and the Soap and Glory Brow Putty is perfect for that!
The putty itself is not at all creamy; I found it quite hard to get enough product on my brush, so I had to keep dipping the brush back in after a couple of swipes to get more product. I don’t think I would choose this if I were going for a perfectly polished eyebrow look, but for everyday it’s quick, it’s easy, it’s convenient and it’s affordable. Maybe the shade Dark Chocolate would have given me more intensity.
The brush is pretty good. I didn’t even feel tempted to reach for my Japonesque Angled Brow Brush as I felt the S&G brush did an amazing job!
Now onto my favourite thing about the Soap and Glory Archery Brow Putty: it is extremely long-lasting! My eyebrows resisted an entire day with my 9-month-old son, who’s obsessed with touching my face; I even bathed him and got water splashed all over my face, but my brows didn’t budge. I had a little swatch on my hand, and despite much scrubbing, it stayed there until I removed it with a makeup wipe.
Overall, I liked the Soap and Glory Archery Brow Putty for its convenient, easy and subtle way of filling in my eyebrows. If you’re looking for a long-lasting, smudge-proof and water-proof affordable brow product, this will definitely sort you out.
