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 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

It has a weird color.

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.

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!

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.

I loved this! It fills in your brows so nicely! Color does not change once it's on your brows like some of the other reviews say? Not sure why it got such low reviews, I really like all of this brands brow products.

Very nice look last long-standing

So not a lot of people know that you are supposed to store eyebrow pens/ any liquid-y makeup pen with a felt tip UPSIDE DOWN so all of the liquid goes to the tip (duh!), which is why you see the 'bad' reviews that they only used the pen once and it 'dried up'. Personally, I bought the pen because I have a scar on my eyebrow from when I was little and so I have accumulated an enormous amount of eyebrow products to try and cover it up. However, the is by far THE BEST one I have used so far. I was a little skeptical of the way the felt tip was designed, but It works great and creates hairlike strokes so you can barely notice it! This product is also buildable so you can make it lighter or darker, depending on your skin tone/hair color/placement on your brow. I bough this in the darkest shade to match my hair (dark brown). I finished the look with an Anastasia Beverly Hills brow gel and the look stayed all day, looking natural and remaining in place! HIGHLY recommend!!

Didn't have the 3D effect. It dried a few days of using it
Shayne from Galveston
It dries out. Color turns a weird greenish color after awhile.

Didn't like how it came out.

Love the pen and the price! The ink does stay on for more than 24 hrs

I've gone through like 6 of these because I'm obsessed with how they make my eyebrows look. DONT LEAVE THE CAP OFF. This item will dry out if you leave the cap off. I don't mind that bc it's sooo cheap but yeah it's nice I use it and obsessed but if it didn't dry out

I bought this for the first time and it sweeps on great. I tried it again the next day and started drying out, I exchanged it for a new one and the same thing happen. It just drys out to soon.

I do not actually use this product for what it is intended for. I find that it is an excellent product to use for fake freckles! I use the lightest color and dot it on randomly around my nose and cheeks and blot it out with my finger and it makes a very realistic, natural looking freckle!!! So cute and is very popular right now!
Azra from Fresno
Very nice and fine texture

I use the essence eyebrow gel, I've had good luck with it, but I saw this in stock and thought "why not?" I like it.. however it doesn't come in a good array of tints. I have the medium brown eyebrow gel, but the medium brown in this makes my eyebrows look too fakely done and I didn't like it. I exchanged it for the step down in color, but it isn't so much a brown as it is an auburn. I can blend it in and can use the gel along with it, but it's not the best. It's a great idea and addition to their line, but it still needs work done to it.
Hannah from Michigan
For only a couple dollars and this is my new go to eyebrow product!! It really doesn't rub off until I take my make up off at the end of the day and the color is super natural. Definitely recommend using a light hand but that's the same with any liquid eyebrow stuff. Highly recommend!

Besides the color, there's nothing about this product that I like. It isn't precise in its application. The ink skips. And after about 3 uses, it started to dry out. I'm glad it didn't cost a lot of money because I had to trash it.
Peggy from Detroit
I bought one of these, and used it one brow. It looked great! But when I tried to use it on my other brow, the product was completely dried up. I thought maybe I got a dud so i bought another. The 2nd one didn't even do one brow. Most useless product ever.

The pen shape is nice but the tip is hard to use. The 3 tips don't make fine lines like eyebrows because to get the color out you have to press it to hard. I'll stick to my powder brows if that's how it's gonna be.
