Most Helpful Positive Review New go-to brow product
I've only recently gotten into using eyebrow products, probably about a year or so ago. My eye brows are extremely light blonde compared to my strawberry blonde hair which is why I began experimenting with making my brows more noticeable. I have tried several Liners, pens, highlighters, etc and I always think I've found something that basically works but... Like... Takes a lot of work to make work.
This took me only once or twice to perfect a clean looking shape/line and it blends sooooo amazingly with my real eyebrow hair. Like, this is the one. I do use an actual brush after about 10 seconds of drawing my initial shape/defining line/lines to make the color blend out to more my hair coloring.
But this is so so so so easy to use. I have recommended this is a bunch of people already because women in my life have noticed I have eyebrows now lol. And they don't look ratchet (yay)!!
However, unless you don't wash your face, I would not consider this to be 48 hour stay. It's not that much of a staining sort of effect BUT it doesn't budge all day/night until I wash it off which is a total relief. Stays clean and neat and yes, honestly recommend this leaps and bounds more than other types/brands I've used.
I use it daily and it's my favorite this far. I can't imagine anything being less high maintenance and looking as good as this does.
Most Helpful Critical Review No room for mistakes!
My first time using this L'Oreal Micro Ink Pen, I discovered the "ink" part real quick. You see, I have MS and my hands sometimes shake, applying makeup is often a challenge for me. I never leave the house without my face on though, it's my 'war paint', that helps me tackle the world. My eyebrows are bushy but fair (grey!) I often fill them in to make them more noticeable. I'm familiar with using my fingertips or tissue to rub off mistakes but that wasn't the case with this micro ink pen. I had to completely remove every trace of makeup on my eyebrow and start over again. I've never had this problem before.
On days when I was successful with applying the micro ink pen on the first try, I had a lot of compliments. I've recommended it to several friends already.
Would I purchase it again? No. Just because the days when I messed up, it took so much time to re-do and made me late for appointments.

Just wished it had a blending brush on the other end.
I would buy this product again

I never wrote a review before about any skin care or make up but this ink pen i loved it it shows my eyebrows soo natural look and that's what I was looking for. I have my left eyebrow has no enough hair and it is not growing back but with this pen it solved my problem and the price is reasonable.
blotchy.... wasted $.
oldprune from California
Pen tip gets dry and ink won't come out. When it does after inverting and shaking it draw partial lines - some too thin and some too thick!
I will go back to traditional pencil.
Probably would not purchase again.
Benny from Oklahoma
Releases plenty of product but does not give much control in how much is released at a time.
I would buy this product again

This is my 3rd purchase of this product. I have purchased several others but really like this one.
Decent gel product for eyebrows
Adrienne from Atlanta
This is my first time using a gel pen for my brows
It is OK but I'm not sure whether I would buy it again. The pencil is easier to use I think
BrandiJ from New Mexico
This is junk. After the first few uses it no longer draws the lines. Just like using a marker. It's not what I expected at ALL!
Decent quality for a decent price
Bargain Hunter Blondie from KY
I was looking for a micro blading eyebrow pen that was a decent price, and was good quality, which is exactly what this is. Probably won't buy again because it wasn't giving me the natural hair-like effect that I was going for but overall good product for the price.
Works like a marker

Easy to use, easily shapes brows.
MJK1 from Chicago Burbs
I really like the product but feel like it dried out pretty quick. It was great for the first couple weeks, but then left less and less product. While not expensive, I can buy a good pencil for the same price that lasts longer. So I'm kind of so/so if I'd purchase again.
Just what I needed

My brows are turning gray in places. I had earlier purchased a pencil to fill in where the color had been lost. The pencil didn't work. This pen is perfect.
Love this Product
Jay from North Carolina
It's a brow pen, it works.
I am still learning to use it well but it definitely works!
Redwine from GA
This product helps define and create hair in those sparse places that develop as we age. Being a redhead, have have to learn how much pressure to apply for the perfect color, but overall most people would be able to use it well the first time. I will definitely purchase again.
Didn't like the effect.
Jude from Warner Robins, GA
Tried it once and won't use it again.
blotchy and difficult to control

Terrible. I will be returning this.

You can define each brow hair or use this to darken or neaten altogether. Its easy to correct if you make a mistake
My new favorite
Liz from Chicago, IL
I love it! I honestly don't use the jagged edge. I just use it like an eyeliner pen tip. I have natural very dark brown eyebrow hairs though the hair on my head is more of a medium brown, if not slight darker than that. I've always have had issues with products looking too dark, bold, harsh, or obvious that I'm wearing a brow product. This one is great for an enhanced eyebrow look or even just a small touch up in a bald spot. Its very buildable. Just let it dry for like 5 secs and then you can go over it again. I would go in person to see the product because the pictures aren't the best.

It's Beautiful. It makes my eyebrows full. Love it.

The color does not come out evenly from the brush - only comes out in a big blotch and from one end of the brush, not at the tip at all so its not an even application. I then have to try to smooth out the blotch and spread it evenly over the entire brow. I've tried numerous times. So disappointed.
Fades away easily and not detailed enough
Stephanie from Daly City
When I ordered this, I looked at the reviews hoping it would convince me this was a good product. However, it's a flimsy applicator and the definition from the started edges did not give me the hair strike lines we all wish to achieve for our brows. I continue my search for the brow product I wish for.
Nicole from West Hartford
I use this product along with the abh dip brow gel and my eyebrows looks so natural yet filled in! I can't live without this product
This product helped to fill in my thin brows.

My hair is medium brown and the blonde color looks most natural.

Still experimenting with application
It gets better with practice
Nicole from FL
I have light blonde hair and always struggle to find an eyebrow product that isn't too dark or too orange colored. Apply with a light hand, let fully dry (it will look too dark), then brush with a spoolie until it's light enough. make sure to really press the cap closed so it doesn't dry out.
Don't like this product at all.
SM20 from MN
I thought it would glide on and look more hair like, but instead went on like splotchy ink. The pen was harder to control than the cream type brow color I typically use. I will give this one away and go back to my usual product.
