[REVIEW] THE FACE SHOP Brow Lasting Ink Pen in shade 01 Light Brown

THE FACE SHOP Brow Lasting Ink Pen in shade 01 Light Brown Review:

I once went on an eyebrow product shopping spree, since I had realized I had one and didn’t really know how to draw my eyebrows! I decided to try many different products from a mascara to a pencil to a stamp and finally, a.. pen? With all these not-so-common products Korea has to offer- like an eyebrow peel off tint for example, I don’t know why this surprised me so much.

Now, I don’t know about you, but for me, eyebrows are definitely not an easy business. When I realized I could just use a marker to get the job done, I felt like there’s finally hope! I can make my right eyebrow look just like my left one in just one move! Needless to say, I didn’t bother checking the products claims, ingredients or.. basically anything except for a photo of it, before purchasing it. There was no shade light enough for my eyebrows but that didn’t matter. Knowing how easy to use an actual marker is, all I wanted was this product on my eyebrows! :3

Fade-proof, super long-lasting formula. The liquid ink delivers budge-proof color that lasts all day. The chunny marker ensures precise, effortless application.

  • For all-day eyebrow colour, use product as an overnight eyebrow stain.
  • Apply product after cleansing and drying your face.
  • Make sure your eyebrows are free of any skincare product or oil.
  • Draw your desired eyebrow shape and go to bed.
  • For best results, leave on for 6 to 8 hours before washing your face.
  • For use as an eyebrow liner, apply before skincare and makeup products to prevent the felt tip from clogging.
  • If clogging occurs, wipe the tip with a clean tissue.

From the packaging perspective, this pen is very convenient. It’s shaped just like an actual marker but it’s a bit shorter and thicker than most of them. The applicator is also a bit thicker than preferred; to put it out blatantly, it’s impossible to draw little details with this marker.

It’s great if you want to fill your eyebrows or just make that straight line that’s missing (and yes I’m talking about my uneven eyebrows). I personally don’t mind this thickness (I clearly like it), but I understand why anyone that’d want to reshape their eyebrows wouldn’t find this particular product convenient.

When you use it, it feels like it’s about to run out but also manages to let out the formula flawlessly… I don’t know how that’s possible. As you use it, the product comes out just like actual ink. It’s a bit liquid and thin- until it oxidizes in a couple of seconds.

I expected it to not last on my brows for more than a minute but I was extremely satisfied to find out that it’s COMPLETELY smudge proof and waterproof. It’s also very long lasting as it stays intact for at least 8 hours (my record, I haven’t tried wearing it for longer than that).

Can this get any better? Apparently, The Face Shop also recommends it for a full 24-hour usage, meaning that you can wear it before you sleep and wake up eyebrow-ready for the day. I don’t personally think that’s necessary but.. Why not?

Today was the first time I read this product’s claims, only to write this review. I was incredibly surprised to see that all of the claims were true! To make things short, this product is amazing and for a person like me- who’s always rushing, extremely helpful.

This pen will really be a game changer for everyone that wants to spend less time on their makeup everyday and doesn’t like re-applying. It’s very easy to carry around (even though it’s not needed) and also budget friendly. I don’t think I’ll repurchase this one until I try the other tint pens the face shop has, but I’d really recommend it to everyone, from makeup rookies to makeup gurus!
