Not all brow (opens in new tab)products are created equal - as proved by the MoonKong microblading brow pen, which is just about breaking the internet.

Microblading, or brow tattooing, has become the semipermanent solution for beefing up sad, sparse brows.  But getting that professional service isn't exactly an option right now, which is why even die-hard microblading fans are switching to brow pens to get their fix. 

With just a few flicks of a wrist, a brow pen creates hair-like strokes for fuller, perfectly-defined arches (microblading vibes minus painful incisions). Sure, the illusion only lasts until the next time you wash your face but it's a shortcut to upping your Zoom beauty game. Hallelujah. 

And the product that Amazon can't sell enough of? MoonKong's Eyebrow Tattoo Pen (opens in new tab).  Not only will it only cost you $13 but shoppers are calling it the "next best thing to microblading".

What sets this microblading brow pen apart from the rest is the four brush tip. More of a marker, it adds depth, colour and definition with the finest, hair-mimicking strokes.  Unlike brow pencils which create soft, bendable lines, MoonKong's formula is made of temporary waterproof ink to ensure it stays put all day without smudging or sweating off. 

But don't just take our word for it. "I have tried eyebrow powders, fibers, pencils, tint, dye, you name it... I wish I had found this long ago," said one shopper. The effects really do look like hair! It’s also waterproof... no smudging, no running! 100% recommend this product."

In other words, it doesn't disappoint.
