Glass reviews Code8 Arch Realist Brow Defining Pencil

IN THE time of Covid where wearing masks has become the new norm, the eyes in turn have become the main attraction. As the eyes do the talking, there is no better time than now to preen your brows and take them to the next level of precision and expression. Luckily, London-born brand Code8 has got us sorted with their latest product: Arch Realist Brown Defining Pencil.

Co-founders Nadine Ayache and Sophia Chikovani explain that Code8 is not simply just a beauty brand, but one that strives to spread positivity on self-image and self-worth to all women. Impressed with the brand’s mission, I was certainly excited to try the product.

As someone who has dark brown eyebrows, I opted for the Arch Realist Brow Defining Pencil in shade Dark. However, the product is also available in shade Medium and Light. The pencil is encased in black sleek packaging with gold accents, and is double-ended, complete with a brush, which made styling easy.

After brushing through my brows, I began to fill them with light pencil strokes, following my brow hair’s natural direction. I was immediately impressed with the precision of the pencil and the pigment of the colour which seamlessly blended with my own brow colour.

My brows were left looking much fuller yet still natural, as well as super neat and tidy – like I had just had them done! The pencil truly does define the shape of the eyebrows and accentuates the arch.

The brush is again useful in smoothing out any harsher lines. The product is easily blended throughout the brow due to its soft texture, thus allowing for easy application.

What I also loved about the Arch Realist Brown Defining Pencil was that it not only achieves success in the aesthetic of the eyebrow, but it also contains rich ingredients that nourish the brows. Some key ingredients used are shea butter, jojoba oil and Vitamin E, enabling both a long-lasting effect and ensuring your brows are looked after in the long-term. And on top of that, the product is also paraben-free and vegan-friendly.
