Review: Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil in Dark Brunette

I haven’t done many before & after photos on here yet (I’ll remedy that soon!), but if you’ve checked out my review of Hourglass Immaculate, you might have noticed that my eyebrows don’t exactly exist.

Review: Givenchy Le Rouge Lipstick

That should tell you pretty much everything you need to know, right? Well, just in case you need more information on them (beyond the fact that I’m in love), I guess I”ll go ahead and write the rest of the review.
