I read so many great reviews here and there on this and was super-excited to try it. I had great brows in my younger days, but as I've aged they seem to be vanishing (or some turning gray). I now have ill-defined, sparse brows (especially the tail area which is pretty much bald on both sides). When using any product, my goal is well-shaped, natural looking brows. I do realize that it's now always going to be somewhat obvious, depending how closely you look, that I fill them in a little bit, and I'm ok with that. However, the scouse brow is NOT for me. So, here are my thoughts about Sugar Arch Arrival

Pros-
--The color Taupe Tom is great. In my opinion it is not taupe at all, its a medium-dark brown gray color (as described on Sugar's site) and it's perfect for my dark brunette brows.

--Smudge-proof and long lasting. This has excellent staying power. You can rub or scratch your eyebrow and the product stays on. No touch-up required throughout the day, lasts from dawn til bedtime on me. Haven't tested it, but I would guess this would be somewhat water resistant as well.

Cons-
--Consistency of the pencil is very hard and chalky. Difficult to get the color to transfer to my skin, therefore I have to press really hard and end up with too much color in one area, and overly dark, thick lines. I can blend the dark lines out somewhat, but then I end up with completely shaded in brows which look really fake. I've not been able to get anything resembling hair-like lines from this pencil. This might be good for heavily colored/shaped brows, but for the natural brow look it just doesn't work for me at all.

--Amount of product. Imo, something is off with the amount of product you get. It's listed as .35g, that's 350mg or .012 oz. My Maybelline Total Temptation brow definer is 150 mg or .0052 oz. So, I should be getting twice as much product with the Sugar. The picture I posted shows both pencils, having each been used about 4 times. While the Sugar pencil is a tiny bit wider (maybe 1 mm) it's clear that the Maybelline is over 1/4" longer than the Sugar. The 1mm width difference in no way makes up for the 1/4" length difference even if they would be an equal amount of product. Then remember, I'm supposed to get 2x as much pencil with Sugar... so where is it? It's not in the actual pencil. Maybe they included the container in the weight, idk, but something is wrong here.

Overall, very disappointed. Does not work for me and will not repurchase again.

I cannot live without this brow pencil! It's currently out of stock and I hope I don't run out. It's so long lasting and the perfect shape to do your brows without making a mess. It's the best brow product I have ever used and I have used them all except tattooing. It comes with the perfect little spoolie brush too.
