Brows rule Instagram, it’s a fact. Every time we see a selfie with the perfect pair of “frames”, we instantly know that it’s going to be regrammed a million times. Sometimes these works of art are so perfect that they don’t even look humanly achievable, but with the right products even a beginner can rock #EyebrowsonFleek, and new Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencils make creating great arches easier than ever.
First of all, the range of colors is impressive! Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencils come in 9 wearable shades:
- Platinum Blonde – for platinum and cool blonde hair
- Blonde – for light to medium neutral blonde hair
- Warm Blonde – for dark/strawberry blonde hair
- Auburn – for medium to deep red hair
- Soft Brunette – for light to medium cool brown hair
- Warm Brunette – for warm medium brown hair
- Dark Brunette – for deep brown hair with warm undertones
- Ash – for gray and dark brown hair with cool undertones
- Natural Black – for darkest brown or black hair
The first thing I noticed about these pencils is the unique triangular tip, which is something I haven’t seen before. That shape is perfect for sculpting with broad strokes using one end, and then drawing the individual hairs with another, which creates a very natural look.
Hourglass also combined powder, pencil, and wax in this formula, so you won’t need any additional products to prep or set your brows. The color is buildable, so it’s easy to create brows that can look either very natural or very bold with just a few extra strokes. That explains why it felt a little stiff at first, but eventually the pigment melted into my skin and stayed on all day without budging.
Swatch reference: My skin tone is between MAC NC15 and NW15 with yellowish hue and neutral undertones. Sometimes I can wear NW20 in the Summer. I thought this would be useful to know, since all screens show colors differently, and I also don’t have a studio setup with consistent lighting. Hope that helps!

All Arch Brow Sculpting Pencils also come with a brush attached to the other end. This convenient packaging design really makes these a one-stop for all of your brow grooming needs.
