Fix Your Face: Milani Brow Tint Pen

When I bought this a couple of weeks ago and tried it that night, I was super excited to review it, because it was AMAZING.

Then the next morning I used it again so that I could take photos … and it wasn’t quite so amazing anymore.

What I really liked about it the first night was how saturated and inky it was. By the next morning it seemed like it had completely dried out, and I was pissed.

It turns out it wasn’t actually dry, and I figured out that the trick to getting it to work is that you have to set it upside down for a few seconds to get the tint to flow to the tip before you use it. They say to store it horizontally to make it last. And then you have to kind of hold it bottoms up while you’re using it to keep it flowing, which can be awkward.

Anyway, having figured out how to make it work, I do still like it. What I especially like about it is that, since it’s a thin liquid, it actually darkens the hair on my eyebrows, instead of just coloring the skin behind them like most powders (and even pencils) do. I have invisible blond eyebrows, so this is great. It does add color underneath to fill in gaps too, and it’s nice and precise. Plus it lasts all day and then some. I still have eyebrows when I go to bed at night! It costs $6.

So here are before and after photos of my eyebrow, which clearly needs plucking. But you can see the difference using this pen in Natural Taupe. If you have sad, thin, invisible brows like me, this might be a good option for you.



An eyebrow appears! Nice, right? Lately I’ve been supplementing this with NYX Eyebrow Cake Powder in Auburn/Red, since my hair is dyed red. That’s just to get the color right, though. I prefer the effect of the Milani pen.
