Then I went into town on Sunday with mam and headed to the Soap and Glory stand. I'd been to a different Boots last week and forgot they didn't do S&G, so hotfooted it to Jervis to see if they had the Archery 2 in 1 Brow Filling Pencil and Brush. Aka, the best feckin dupe ever for my Brow Wiz.
Here she is. As you know, I tried the other Archery Brow Tint and Pencil from Soap and Glory last year and was impressed with the felt tip end, but not the pencil end. I wanted and needed a smaller pencil. Well slap my ass and call me Sally lads. This Archery is the actual business!
The pencil is nice and small, perfect for those of us who have a tendency to go a bit wild with the brows. It's also harder and waxier than any other drug store pencil out there which means it stays put, won't smudge and looks more natural.
I got the shade Blondeshell and it's a perfect match for my Brow Wiz shade, Taupe. As you can see in the photos below, the pencil ends are identical.
As are the spooly ends. You can see my Anastasia spooly has been well loved and used, keeping my brows nicely groomed.
In terms of swatches, take a look at these. Near identical. Only a fellow makeup junkie will truly understand the pure joy at finding a dupe like this. And a dupe for a Holy Grail product at that.... It's like this was meant to be... Would you listen to me getting all philosophical talking about an eyebrow pencil. But shush, this is good karma in all it's glory. I could have spent the guts of £50 on Cult Beauty and even more on Sephora, but all I spent was €10 on this! And I didn't even spend the actual €10 as I used my Boots points!
I never ever thought I'd be saying this here on the blog, but I can't see myself repurchasing the Brow Wiz again... Not because the Soap and Glory version is better, but because it's more readily available, is a perfect dupe and I will save money not having to bulk up an online order just to buy one thing!
Tell me folks, what are your favourite dupes at the moment?
