So many brands have brow felt tip pens, and the GOSH Brow Hair Stroke 24h Semi Tattoo Ink Liner is one that launched relatively recently within Superdrug.
I have had a really mixed experience when trying brow felt tips, as so many either look bright red in the brows or they look green.
In the last few months, brands have made it clear you need to apply the brow felt tips on bare skin, with no skincare underneath as it can cause the felt tip to change colour.

The directions for using the GOSH Brow Hair Stroke 24h Semi Tattoo Ink Liner, is to clean the brows properly before using the pen by removing any makeup, oils, skincare or anything else.
You then need to let the area dry fully, before applying the pen. Once the area is dry, apply your GOSH Brow Hair Stroke 24h Semi Tattoo Ink Liner in short strokes in the cleaned eyebrows.
This pen has the typical forked design that the other brow felt tips have, but this GOSH version is slightly different. Normally the pens have the fork tips at the same length, but the nib of this pen is angled, which I think would actually be more effective and it looks so natural.
There's a really helpful video on the GOSH website, showing the pen in use, and it really does create microbladed like strokes.
The GOSH Brow Hair Stroke 24h Semi Tattoo Ink Liner is £8.99 and only comes in three shades; 001 Brown, 002 Grey Brown and 003 Dark Brown, and the three shades all look like variations of browns so there's not the best shade rage.
I don't know why, but brow felt tips tend to all be quite dark, so if you have blonde hair, I think you'd struggle to find a shade match. If you are interested in trying these brow pens, they're available via Superdrug right now.
