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.

I love love this product. I have very thin sparse brows and this stays on all day! I do wish they had some other colors to chose from.

With all the neg comments I found no problems with this. I really like it. Had to learn a few tricks to get the look I wanted. Never use it straight out of the tube. That first amount will lump on. Use a soft touch. Brush your brows before and after. I really like this item.
I would purchase this again

Don't waste your money.
Angie from North Carolina
Tip too large. Doesn't produce fine hair like lines.
This is an amazing product
Anns from Charleston
It has an amazing color and pigment!
I might buy this again
Cheryl from Noho, CA
It great for the price
Goes on like a marker, NOT micro anything.
Page Girls from Bend, OR
I bought this for my thinning eyebrows. I liked the idea of thing hair-like definition. That's not what you get with this product. It's more thick marker lines.
Quite good gel pen
adie from Atlanta, GA
This is the first time I have bought a gel for the brows. It is quite good, but I still think I prefer a pencil
with a spoolie on the other side.
NO. Not enough dip between "teeth" of brow stroke applicator
Tiger from Atl ga
Okay, was really excited about the anti smudge and transfer factor. The teeth for lack of a better explanation, are too thick, it very easily blurs together which is fine if you want a blockier more filled in brow but to simulate hairs with strokes you cant have a product that has thick teeth too close together, it ends up being a lot of work to end up feathering out and blurring leaving you with block brows for 4x the effort
Krisss from Vestal NY
Works good at filling in brows and where you don't have brows. Bought a way more expensive version by benefit and it was terrible, so I was reluctant to try this concept again. Glad I did for the price it's a good product.
Nubia from Atlanta
I have very fine brows and this product was very easy to use. I was able to use it all day without touching up, which is fabulous.
Still on the fence
Desiree R from Los Angeles
First and second use, the pen dries out quickly. Mid application the strokes became one thick line. I am going to story the pen differently and see if that makes a difference.
Heather from MN
I first bought this product last fall (shade brunette) and I loved it! Color match was accurate, it was easy to apply, and it lasted all day. Just recently the color from that first pen was running low and turned a reddish-auburn color on my skin so I went out to buy another one. The second application of the new pen also turned that same red color! Very frustrating.
Drys out really quick
Betsy from Idaho
The first swipe I tried on my hand to see how it would look, I got one more swipe to my brows before it was dry and had to go back under its cap for a bit. Not super convenient for doing two eyebrows in a quick timeline.
I would buy again
Holly from Denton, Texas
Very easy to use and natural looking.
I wasted money on this
Kathy from Tulsa
I was very disappointed. Waste of money
Love this product! The color looks good with my skin tone.

Just wished it had a blending brush on the other end.
I would buy this product again
Nia from Virginia
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
Sandy from Arizona
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
Angel from Sparks, Nevada
Easy to use, easily shapes brows.
