Thought it was great, and then...loved the product. went on easily, looked natural, i loved it walking out the door. later that day i look in the mirror and this product tinted my skin GREEN. yes GREEN! like the old green ink of a tattoo that's been on your skin for about 30 years. it looked ridiculous because the green bled outside of the brow area into the surrounding skin. i couldn't even get it off with regular soap! i had to use a soap with soap with hand sanitizer to get it off my face. did maybelline not TEST this product before releasing it??? the thing is, i read other reviews about the green tint and didn't believe it. well i'm a believer now!

Product turned my skin greenI bought this product three hours ago at the store. It looked like a good eyebrow product and I was excited to try it and as it opened the package and tried it out on my hand first before my eyebrows I made a few small strokes on my hand to see how well it applies. After applying the brow tent on my hand I took a cotton ball to wipe it off and there was a green tint on my hand where the brow tent was. Thankfully I used this product on my hand before I tried using it on my eyebrows. I work in the military and CAN’T be going to work with green eyebrows. Maybelline should pull this off the shelf and evaluate their formula! Waste of money... don’t recommend.

Turns your eyebrows green!!I was really excited about this product when I first put it on. I haven't been able to find the eyebrow chalk powder at any store, so I thought it should be time to branch out and find a new product. I bought the deep brown tint pen and it made my eyebrows look natural, dark and full. Imagine my surprise when I got to work and my coworker commented on my green eyebrows. I looked in the mirror and everywhere the pen hit my skin, it had turned green. Even after extensive scrubbing there still is a green hue on my skin! Stay away from this product, unless you are in the market for green eyebrows. I am extremely disappointed that I wasted my money on this product and that it was such a fail

Go Back To The Drawing Board MaybellineBought the #355 Soft Brown Tattoo Eyebrow Pen - Has potential to be a great product - but it definitely needs tweaking. Bought it, tried it right in my car, just a few strokes - was liking it. So, a few days later - tried it - and there was so much ink/product in the pen that it just 'flowed' onto my brows - and I looked like a clown. (Have you ever bought a magic marker, and you had to push down the tip a few times to prime it - to get the color to release and flow to the top). With this product, of course, you don't 'prime it' - but it seemed like it was 'over primed' so to speak - and it just flowed.........................

Green stain!I bought this today, after watching a comparison video of this and a “$40 version” (to be fair I should’ve checked reviews first but it was a bit of an impulse buy while I popped into superdrug).
Excited to try it, it initially worked okay, a bit marker-y but not bad, showed the lines okay. Until I went to buff it out with my finger on the inner end, then it left a green stain on my skin! (Photos attached). Not a great look. I then drew a fake eyebrow on my wrist to practise the hair strokes and went to remove it, leaving a green stain that won’t come off! Such a shame, this product had so much potential.

Perfect! (Just make waterproof version stat!)I am obsessed with my eyebrows since childhood because I have so few hairs that people often assume I overplucked horribly. I was a makeup artist based in NYC for 20 years, and I have used everything, tried everything. No brow product has ever made my brows look real, full and natural! It wears very well, and I find it very easy to control the output of color. I would have given 5 stars if it was as “bullet proof” as we say in the industry as say, Wonderbrow. Having said that, the wear IS extremely good overall. I have been using a $25 brow product so yay Maybelline!, you have given me a fab bargain!!!!

Worked great after one use but dried out...I bought the pen the other day because I saw it on pinterest. Since, I have sparse eyebrows I'm always searching for the best options to fill in my brows where they look natural. I loved this pen when I first opened and used it. The next day I went to use it and I noticed the felt tip was dry. As with felt tip eyeliners I messed about with it to get the liquid to wet the tip and only a little came out. I knew this would be a problem when I first opened it and saw the felt tip. All in all I like the product but some changes need to be made to keep the felt tip wet with product otherwise it's just a waste of money.

I’ve never used a brow product like this before so it was very intriguing to me. I received the shade medium brown, but it seemed to be a light brown. However, the lighter shade compared to my natural brows makes it very easy to fill in the front end of my brows. The color does last a long time on my brows. I like that you are essentially creating 3 brow hairs in one stroke, but sometimes if the pen is not angled correctly, the three lines will end up making a blob of color. Overall, this is a great brow pen for people who are just starting out in makeup and would like to start filling in their brows. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
