Budget Brow Pencils

Rimmel, Soap and Glory and Eylure Eyebrow Pencils

Ah, the age old topic of brows. The amount of different products made for them can be overwhelming to say the least, but I've selected some that are relatively easy to use, have good pay-off and all cost under £10.

First up is Rimmel's Professional Eyebrow Pencil in Dark Brown. It's the cheapest of the bunch at £2.99 and was the first eyebrow pencil I bought back when I realised eyebrows actually make a difference to your entire face. This one is quite easy to be heavy handed with, and it takes a lot of finessing to make sure you don't get the drawn-on Scouse brow look. However it does the job and fills in brows and gives them definition for an amazing price. The brush on the lid is a bit redundant and doesn't do much more than scratch your face, so if you go for this pencil I'd recommend picking up a spoolie that does a much better job at blending out.

Secondly is by far and away my favourite of the bunch - Soap & Glory's Archery Filling Pencil and Brush that you can pick up for £8. I have the shade Hot Chocolate, which is a perfect brown that isn't too dark for brunette hair. It's so easy to apply and looks completely natural. There's no sharpening involved so no product waste, and the spoolie at the end is great quality. It also comes with a click-on lid for both ends, so there's no chance of fluff finding its way onto the brush.

Finally is Eylure's Shape and Shade Eyebrow Pencil and Tamer in Dark to Medium Brunette. Like the Rimmel pencil, I find it can be easy to overdo it so you've got to have a light hand. It's more of a natural brown than the Rimmel pencil and comes with a useful spoolie on the end. It did come with a lid but unfortunately this fell off pretty soon after purchasing, so as you can see the brush is full of all the dregs of my makeup bag (nice). This pencil costs £5.39 and is well worth the money.

Have you tried any of these pencils? What's your favourite budget eyebrow product?

  1. I really want to try the soap and glory one but whenever I go into the shops my shade is never there, I'll find it one day!

  2. I haven't used an eyebrow pencil in such a long time as I use eyeshadow to fill in my brows. But the S&G one looks so good, I need to check it out in Boots soon!

    1. I used eyeshadow for ages before I found the S&G pencil, but it gives you a much more defined line without it looking drawn on :) x
