Budget Brows

Budget/ High Street/ Drugstore Beauty Eyebrow Brow Pencils

Everything is about the brows. 'Brows on Fleek' or so they say... is a 2016 essential and with all of the talks on brows surrounding the infamous Anastasia Brow Wiz and Dip Pomade, both products that are hard and expensive to get hold of, and you also run the risk of getting the wrong shade. It becomes even more important to be able to pick up budget options, that are just as good, easily and on the high street. I've narrowed down a few of my favourites and the one's that I just had to mention. 

First up, Soap & Glory really know what they're doing on the brow front. The Soap & Glory Archery Brow Pencil is my go-to and what I use every day to create my brows, so really I could have just written an entire post about this beauty. Everyone coins this product a dupe for the Anastasia Brow Wiz, and I can see why. It feels so high end. One end features a retractable pencil with no need to sharpen and the other end features a brush to keep your brows in place.

If you're more of a brush and pot brow kinda gal, then Soap & Glory have the other option of their Soap & Glory Archery DIY Brow Bar*. I used to always use the HD Brows kit, so I really can appreciate how good this kit is. It has EVERYTHING you could need. A small brush to comb your brows into place, a clear wax to keep them in place, two shades of brow powder and a highlight to use along the brow bone. This is perfect for travelling, though do be careful as mine smashed on the way to me. I'm still using it even though it's crushed, I just can't bare throwing it away as I really do love it, but I may just have to part with the cash and get a new one... It really is worth it. 

The KIKO Shape and Shimmer Eyebrow and Highlighter Pencil* is such a nifty idea. Much like with the Soap & Glory DIY Brow Bar, this product features a brow bone highlight and a brow pencil. They are both retractable, easy to apply and super creamy. I love the texture of these and the packaging just doesn't feel like it comes from the high street. 

Onto possibly the most budget product of the post, and the one that actually surprised me the most. I'm going to say it, I really didn't think that I would like the Barry M Brow Wow Eyebrow Pencils* but I really really do. At £3.99, you really can't go wrong with these as a back up in your collection. These are great if you want to make sure your brows stay in place all day long as the pencil is super waxy and works as a filler and wax at the same time. I mix a couple of the shades to get the look I want and I think this makes my brows look more realistic when pencilled in. These are perfect if you're just getting into make up and want to try it out. 

I can't go out without my brows, I keep them super natural but these are the products that I use to help me get there and they're pocket friendly, so I really can't complain... I'm nearly out of my favourite Soap & Glory Archery Brow Pencil in Hot Chocolate so I'm thinking it's probably time to pick up another, and pick up a DIY Brow Bar that isn't smashed to smithereens... The things you do for your brows, eh. 

What are your favourite products to use on your brows?
