I've just had my poor excuse for eyebrows tattooed in with a fine line feather stroke effect. Filled in all the gaps, looks brilliant and only top up with a little pencil if I'm after a more dramatic look but it's not necessary daily. Well worth it.
I've tried dozens. I have very sparse but dark brows and do have a problem with redness in products, also with them rubbing off.
The only way I have found to stop rubbing off is to use the felt pens (GOSH) or Barry M, but they look unnatural on their own so I use other products and a bit of marker pen over the top for staying power. At the moment I am using the darkest Browzings with the darkest Barry M felt pen.
The darkest GOSH felt pen is too red but I tried a lighter one called Wheat in combo with Browzing and that was fine until I started getting eczema from it.
Rimmel do a black-brown eyebrow pencil, not too red. I also like Bobbi Brown powder pencil in mahogany but it is really messy to sharpen.
I have the Benefit 'Brows a go go' kit which is basically Brow Zings with some extra bits. I absolutely love it. It's dead easy to do and you can mix both colours to get the shade you want. Still looks perfect at the end of the day too.
I got it for my 21st birthday and I've used it every day since, and I'd say it's not even a quarter gone and I'm 24 this year
