Similar to a microblade, it encompasses a slanted tip with a number of prongs to depart extremely practical strokes that appear to be actual eyebrow hairs. The principle distinction? The ink is not stingingly tattooed below the pores and skin’s floor, and it prices only some bucks, making it a fairly candy different to microblading for needle-phobes on a finances.
There was just one downside: When Tattoo Studio Forehead Tint Pen launched shortly after Yong’s video, most of the a whole bunch of 1000’s of keen viewers who do not stay in Singapore had been out of luck.

And simply in case you have not seen Yong’s video but — sure, it completely seems definitely worth the wait.
Though it takes Yong three tries earlier than she’s glad along with her method and placement, the outcomes are very convincing. The hair-like strokes appear to be precisely that: hair. And the pen would not bleed the best way it did when she swatches them on the again of her hand at the start of the video. She even proves it may be used extra like an everyday forehead pencil when swipes it horizontally within the fuller ends of her brows, the place she would not want as a lot definition.
Maybelline New York guarantees smudge-free, 24-hour put on, however shortly after making use of it, Yong gave her brows a fairly agency finger-rub solely to search out that it did, in actual fact, smudge. Hopefully, it is extra transfer-resistant after being given extra of an opportunity to dry, as a result of the outcomes really are remarkably practical.
Yong additionally notes that this is not the primary forked forehead pen. Etude Home, for instance, affords an identical product, which is sweet information for these of you who can not deal with the considered ready till June for Maybelline’s model. However for those who can maintain it collectively, you will have the chance to select from 4 shades — Blonde, Smooth Brown, Medium Brown, and Deep Brown (completely different shades than those Yong mentions within the video) — when it hits shops for about $10 subsequent month.
