Hello beauties, I'm back with my second and last post of my Soap & Glory Eye QUEENS series. This time I'm going to talk about the Archery 2-in-1 Brow Filling Pencil & Brush

Now I'm no brow master (as much as I long to be!), but I do like to spend a bit of time on my brows. So if there's a brow product out there that can help me become one step closer to gorgeous brows, I'm there! I couldn't help but notice all this talk about the Archery brow pencil, so of course I NEEDED to try it. It's much like the Anastasia Brow Wiz, thanks to the retractable thin pencil on one end and the spooly brush on the other.
I don't know about you, but sometimes my brows have a mind of their own and this is where the all important brush end comes in to play. It effortlessly tames and controls any strays, with minimal effort. It's great for creating your perfect shape and keeping those brows in line! Once you've tidied up your brows, it's time to use the pencil. The pencil is super thin and light, giving you a perfect, precise shape. You can easily create a natural brow with this pencil as it's very thin and soft, but you can also build it up to create a more defined statement look. It's very easy to control, so it's pretty hard to mess your brows up, which is great for us brow beginners out there.
One of the only down points to this product I can think of, is that it only comes in two shades - Hot Chocolate for the brunettes and Blondshell for the fair haired beauties. Now I have light brown hair and dark eyebrows and I still find this Hot Chocalate shade the tiniest bit too dark, I would of loved a little bit of a lighter shade to try. Don't get me wrong, it's a great shade and I will continue to use and probably re purchase, but I do think two shades just isn't enough for all the different hair colours out there!

I really hope you have enjoyed my little series on my new favourite Soap & Glory eye products, that have the potential to maybe even becoming holy grails! You can catch the first part of my Soap & Glory Eye QUEENS series, Supercat Carbin Black Extreme Eyeliner Pen if you haven't already.

August Favourites 2014

It only feels like a week or so ago I was doing my July favourites!
Well this month has been great for trying products. Everything new I have tried I have really, really loved. August is the month where we soak up every last ounce of the sun, before the rain comes back and Autumn arrives. I'm pretty read for Autumn now, it's one of my favourite times of year. Before we get on to Autumn though, here's my last Summer favourites for 2014, August.

This month I finally got myself one of these famous chocolate bar bronzers, Bourjois Délíce de Poudre 52. God knows why it's took me so long! I picked up the darker shade by accident, but I still have been loving this to give me a healthy glow this month. I have a more detailed review of this here.

 My go to lipstick this month has been MAC Chatterbox, it's a fun bright pink/red, kind of like a muted Fuchsia. It's bright and fun without being too much. This has been perfect this month because it's more wearable than a fuchsia but still super girly and perfect for the summer. It's an Amplified Creme, so it's very pigmented and opaque like the mattes, but with a little creaminess and shine, so it's not as drying. It comes out on me as a bright pink/red shade. I think this would be gorgeous on sooo many different skin tones, I can't think of a skin tone this wouldn't look good on!

I have also been all about NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer this month! I originally bought this as an all rounder concealer for blemishes and under the eyes, but I have especially been loving this for under the eyes, it's so brightening and creamy it really makes you look radiant and awake. It's also still amazing for any blemishes you have and it doesn't take much to cover those bad boys up! I have a more detailed review for you here.

I recently watched Gabriella Lindley from Velvetgh0st rave about the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover in a video, and I was like WOW! All you do is dip your finger in the pot, give it a bit of a swirl and voilà, you have a nail varnish free finger nail without all the cotton pad mess and horrid smell! I'm not going to lie, it does take probably more like 4/5 seconds to remove it completely, but still I think that's amazing! It leaves a gorgeous red fruit and vanilla fragrance on your nails, so you won't be stuck with the usual strong potent scent most nail removers leave! It also nourishes your nails thanks to the sweet almond oil goodness, rather than drying and stripping them like other removers.

I couldn't leave it any longer without trying Maybellines' Volum' Express Mascara Falsies. People have been raving about this for years and I thought it's about time I better try it. This seems to be the theme of this months favourites, I've been trying things that I've been hearing abut for years, but haven't felt that sudden erge to get before. The only reason it's took me so long to try this is that I've been happy with the mascaras I've been using, such as Rimmel's Day To Night & Maybelline's Big Eye's, I just haven't felt the need. But I just couldn't consider myself a TRUE beauty blogger, until I finally bought this. I'm planning on writing a full review on this soon, so I'm just going to say I've loved this, it's given me great full long lashes so easily and without all the faff of my previous 2 brush mascaras (that I still love by the way!).

If you haven't already seen, I've recently featured the Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner Pen in my Soap & Glory EYE Queens series. I'm super impressed with this eye-liner, it gives the perfect cat eye look without all of the effort, mess and tension when applying! I love the pen style nib on this eye-liner, it makes applying so easy an precise, it's really been a joy to use whilst I've rekindled my love affair with the winged liner!

What have your go-to products been this Summer?
