I have no idea how this brow pen got such poor reviews because I LOVE IT. I have SPARCE brows. And when I say sparce, I mean practically non existent! They are naturally platinum blonde and literally 3 hairs above each eye. So brow products for me are a MUST to look normal every day. But I struggle big tone with colors and undertones. Most gels, pomades, and powders just look yo artificial and harsh on me. And pencils take forever. But this 3-prong applicator took my 20min brow routine (yes, seriously 20min) to literally 5min!
I purchased the 2nd lightest shade soft brown color because my hair right now is a cool toned ash blonde. The color matches wonderfully and the undertone is also very cool toned which I struggle to find. It lasts ALL DAY as long as you don't sweat all crazy at the gym. It survives normal water like a rain storm but I think the skin oils from a gym workout are what makes it come off. It's super easy for the perfect natural fluffy brow and the price is unreal. It does not cause that weird green tint that other products like the Maybelline pen cause. NEVER STOP MAKING THIS!!
I am occasionally using essence cosmetic products and despite of their basic quality and short lasting I did not suspect that this eyebrow pen will be a whole new (negative) experience. I bought a medium brown eyebrow pen. A few mins after the application it already started to look very artificial (like a tattoo or sth). I decided to go out anyway only to find out - after getting too many suspicious stares from strangers - that my eyebrows are in fact green. Well, at least they matched my backpack. I hope the green color will wash off. Highly NOT recommended and this is the last time I bought sth from essence.

I'm always on the hunt for good eyebrow products. Love the triple point pen- very easy to fill in brows with precision. Color is a good match too. Very happy with this deal.

Things started fine with this product. Until I noticed my eyebrow shape from the pen was literally green. It's only noticeable up close but green, nonetheless

Do not get !! I was so impressed when I first applied it to my brows , then a few hours later I looked in the mirror and seen that my brows were green! Like when fake jewelry turns your skin green, this will turn your brows green

So I have been wanting to try a product like this and I have got to say that I am very disappointed. At first I was excited about the product. I swatched it on my hand and the strokes showed up faint but showed up! I have tried this product a few times before decluttering it and I feel the same way about it every time. It does not show up on my brows. I have tried light strokes and putting a bit more pressure down to hopefully get it to show up but when I do that it just sort of smears around and ends up making my eyebrows look so messy. It does not work as intended so I am just throwing it away. Don't waste your money no matter how cheap it is.

It aarive Thursday, it wasnt sealed. I just got around to using it today, first stroke was good and then its just dried. like no product comes out at all.

I usually love Essence products so I was very excited when I saw this. I do have oily skin but not to an insane degree or anything ... most makeup I can wear just fine, even without primer. But although this pen would show up on my hand fine (I could draw beautiful detailed brows on my hand), it would NOT show up on my face. Not over powder, not over primer, certainly not on its own. Eventually I just trashed it, because I could not use it at all. I am honestly baffled. Not for oily skin, I guess.

I was able to use this once and that one time I really liked it. The color was almost a perfect match and application was super simple. Even stored upside down, it dried up and I wasn't able to use it again.

I bought this product to compare it to Benefits microfilling pen to see if it was a good dupe. My initial reaction to this product (04) was good, the pigment was nice and medium and the application was easy. A few hours into my day I realized that parts of my brows had a greenish tint to them which obviously is different than my hair color. I removed it with micellar water and my skin was stained green as well.

Worn during the day at work as well as going out for an event. One time applied it at 4 in afternoon stayed on through my evening event even with the rest of my makeup was wearing down to the point as it was STILL ON the following morning!

I love this brow pen. Gives me natural brows without too much pigment making them look fake or "sharpie" drawn on. I would buy this product again!! The only reason I did not give 5 stars is that the tip of the pen is a little stiff on the skin.
Hannah from Pennsylvania
The pen itself applies very nicely and gives you a really natural look which I love. I got the blonde color and I've been wearing it the last two days if for some reason after about 30 minutes or an hour my eyebrows start to turn reddish pink. I don't know if it's the pen or the eyebrow gel that I'm using.
Ash from Clayton, NC
I had really high hopes for this pen because I have sparse brows so I thought this would be perfect. It turned this weird green color after a few hours. Wish I had read the reviews before purchasing.

This brow pen last for 2 uses. You get what you pay for.
Kenna from Wichita KS
It is okay but it does have a learning curve and it stained my eyebrow blue after
Jessie J from Black Hills
I figured the tip and product type would make for easy application, but instead, it takes 2-3 times as long to apply as any other brow product I have. Doesn't put down much in terms of color per stroke. Found myself pressing rather hard to get some to come out/stay on. Will be returning, but might give it another chance with a darker shade.
Marian from Norman, Oklahoma
Once I bought it I went home and tried it and once I took it off it stained my eyebrows Green!!!!

The ink in this market dries out very quickly. It works somewhat when it dries to hold brows in place. As far as giving a microblading effect, it does pretty much nothing. There is little to no pigment delivered to the skin. It's just watery.
Dee M from MD
I have sparse brows at the front thick end but the tail end of my brows are fine. This is the fastest product I've use to fill in the front of my brows with a natural look. I bought 3 more right away after trying. Hairlike strokes lasts pretty well dark brown works for my dark brows.

Best eyebrow pen! I'm someone who prefers the pen over pomade or pencil and this is the best one. I've tried all pens and this is the best one. It lasts all day and does not turn your skin blue/green after removing it. Only wish it was waterproof
Sara from Kentucky
It has a weird color.
NikkiGarciaaa from Nevada
I absolutely loved this product. Gave me instant microbladed looking brows without looking like a brow marker. After about 2 hours into my day... my eyebrows were green. Maybe it's from the dyes in the brown but man was I surprised when I removed my face at the end of the day (after being embarrassed of my green brows all day long) and realized the green dye stained my skin! If they reformulate the pigments I will absolutely repurchase this item.
Klipp86 from CA
I LOVE their brow products! I've been a HUGE fan of their brow mousse/gel, whatever it is, for years. U can't beat the price for the quality of the product. It's bar none. I saw this n figured I'd give it a shot. OMG!!!! NO harsh lines, even if I press hard, matches the natural width of my brow hairs which is on the thin side. I use to use the urban decay brow ink pen with the pencil on the other end of it n that SUCKED SO BAD compared to this one. This fills in wherever I need without over doing it n lasts until I wash it off. I'm so obsessed with it. Never going back, until I can patiently grow them back in that is....... yeah I know I'm lying too, it's ok, we all tell that lie to ourselves.

I had never tried an eyebrow pen, but was intrigued by the promise of natural looking, filled in brows and ease of use. The more expensive brand I was going to try was out of stock, and I'm now glad it was. I tried Essence instead and was not disappointed. Not sure why I ever doubt Essence as their mascara is some of the best I've used (and I have tried them all!). I suppose I'm still shocked that their products so consistently outperform the prestige brands. Thanks Essence! Great product. Easy to use. Looks amazing. Will buy again!
A.J. from Virginia
Does exactly what i need it to. I have full brows with sparse areas at the tail end of my brow and it works great. Very natural looking. I am dark brunette, have light olive skin, and use the shade dark brown.
