Last year I got a little bit obsessed with my eyebrows. You may have read my post about eyebrow microblading where I finally bit the bullet and got my eyebrows professionally tattooed. Since then my eyebrows have faded a little bit and I have been looking for ways to revive that “just microbladed” look. Enter the L’Oreal brow artist micro tattoo!
This new product is inspired by the art of microblading. Basically it helps you create a natural looking brow that looks freshly microbladed, with none of the commitment!
The way the pen is shaped allows you to mimic the hair-like strokes that you would expect from getting your eyebrows microbladed. The formula is said to last 24 hours and won’t smudge, bleed or slip off your brows.
How Do I Use It?
After applying my foundation I go to fill in my eyebrows with the pen. (I don’t put any foundation on my eyebrows and keep them clean!) To get the “microbladed look” I use the trident shaped tip to very gently draw hair like strokes along my brow line. The shape of the nib makes it extremely easy to apply and allows for maximum precision. You can use the flatter side of the nib for bolder application on places like your eyebrow tails.
I opted for the shade “brunette” but it’s available to buy in multiple shades. From “blonde” to “ebony” -meaning everyone should be able to find a shade to suit them!
I am really pleased with the results I got when using the pen. As you can see from above, I would use a slightly lighter, more precise hand to get more defined strokes which I would use to fill in the front of my eyebrows where my tattoo has faded slightly. I would then use the flat side of the nib to fill in towards the mid and ends of my eyebrows for a more blocky definition.
It was great at covering more sparse areas of my brows and they’re right when they say it doesn’t budge. It lasted all day long and I had to scrub extra hard with my cleanser at the end of the day to make sure I had got all of the makeup off! Overall a great option If you like the look of microblading but aren’t willing to make the commitment just yet! You can find them for £9.99 at Boots.
