Nevertheless I had high expectations for the well reviewed Hourglass Brow Sculpting Pencil (£26). The formula combines powder, pencil and wax which allows you to create a fuller brows that stays in place. The product has a triangular shape and though I thought it would create too thick a line (I have very sparse brows) I actually found it more precise than your typical pencil as you can use the flat edge for the main area and the pointed tip for more fine strokes.
I think the formula is fantastic, it adheres really well and is the longest lasting brow product I have tried. It has good pigment and applies smoothly, with no drying look or feel and keeps the hairs in place really well. It also has an automatic pencil (so no sharpener required) and contains no sulfates, phthalates, synthetic dyes, fragrance.
It is rather sad therefore that the colour is almost unwearable for me, I bought the shade designed for blondes (my hair is a natural golden blonde) and its too warm with a strong yellow tone that looks unnatural.

I can't tell you how annoying it is to have found such a wonderful formula which is scuppered by the colour.
