If the eyes are the windows of the soul, the brows are the curtains. Well groomed brows can make you look younger, fresher, more fashion-forward, and all the good adjectives. But not everyone is born with great brows plus as we get older, the hairs there can tend to thin. No biggie though when you have great brow tools. One of my favorite brow tools Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil (I love it because the pencil comes in a wedge shape that mimics the way brow hairs come in making it easier to apply and there’s a spooly to blend and brush hairs in place on the other end) now comes in more shades making the lineup a total of nine!
So I’ve raved about Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil when it first came out and had used it extensively thereafter. Then Anastsia Dipbrow Pomade came out and I was on that bandwagon and still am. This is not to take away Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil and its awesomeness. I just have beauty ADD. Plus as a beauty blogger it is in my genetic code to try all the things and write about them. Plus it’s great to have options. What kind of beauty blogger would I be if I only told you about one kind of brow grooming tool?
I hit the press launch for the new Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil shades and got matched to Dark Brunette (which was the shade I was using before, so great match…lol) but I also left with Auburn and Warm Blonde because sometimes I like to bleach my brows and play with brow colors.
Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil Shades:
Platinum Blonde: lightest cool blonde/platinum
Blonde: light to medium neutral blonde
Warm Blonde: dark blonde/strawberry blonde
Auburn: medium to deep red tones
Soft Brunette: light to medium cool brown
Warm Brunette: warm medium brown
Dark Brunette: deep brown with warm undertones
Ash: gray/dark brown with cool undertones
Natural Black: darkest brown to black
If you’re having a hard time figuring out which shade to go with, in general you’d go for one that’s slightly lighter than your hair color. Of course there’s many exceptions to the rule (for instance some people have blonde hair and dark brows and the contrast looks amazing on them) but you want something that is harmonious with your hair and skin color. This is why it’s great that Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil is sold at Sephora because you can try before you buy.

Bottom line: In the world of brow products in pencil form, Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil sits high on my list. Worth a try especially now that it comes in even more shades.
