Threads Brow Pencil + False Lashes
There are many things that are altered after you've been blogging for a while, such as needing everything to be rose gold or marble, scoping out the Boots website and press releases every week for whats new and the importance of eyebrows...no, sadly that isn't sarcasm. Brows are a pretty big deal in the blogging and beauty communities in general and having your brows on point is a true accomplishment.

I'm always searching for new and interesting brow gels, powders and pencils, most of which have relatively disappointing; however as the sheeple (a combination of sheep and people, get it?...) that I am when it comes to beauty products, I am on an endless quest to find the one. I have so many brow pencils, from a range of brands, some of which I love and use constantly and others are hard, scratchy and pull out my brows as I use them which is kind of the opposite of what you want a brow pencil to do.

As obsessed with all things to do with brows as I am, I was excited when this package from Threads arrived. Threads is a relatively new brow and lash brand to be stocked in Harvey Nichols (it's exclusive to the Knightsbridge store) and I was kindly sent a few products to try.

*Threads Waterproof Long Lasting Eyebrow Pencil (£15, Coffee): The pencil contains some fantastic ingredients such as shea butter and cocoa butter. It claims to be sweatproof and waterproof and while I haven't fully tested the waterproof claims - I can say that it is so long lasting! The shade I have is Coffee which is a slightly warm toned coffee bean shade, which matches my hair quite well now but as my hair fades and is dyed again, it might not in the future. The pencil isn't too creamy or too hard and it applies easily without being harsh or stark; it blends out well with the spoolie on the pencil which is a handy addition. The only downside is that there are only two shades to choose from, both of which are dark. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.

*Threads False Lashes (£9 each): I only really wear false lashes for very special occasions and for my halloween looks and I definitely think the Angel Eyes Lashes will be perfect for so many halloween or fancy dress looks as they are so full and voluminous. However the Be-Bop Lashes look like they will be more suitable for everyday wear as they are less full and although I do have to cut lashes down to size, these are easy to apply. The lashes are 100% handmade and re-useable. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.

Overall, I'm really impressed with the brow pencil as it is definitely the longest lasting brow pencil I've tried and the Be-Bop lashes are fantastic and easy to apply even for someone who doesn't wear lashes that often. If you don't like the look of these lashes then they have such a wide range of lashes on their website as well as eyeliners.

Have you tried anything from Threads?
