This Hack Gives You “Permanent” Lip Liner

  • The Maybelline Tattoo Brow Tint is going viral on Tiktok for giving people a “permanent” lip liner.
  • The hack has gone viral, with people claiming their results lasted up to three days.
  • An editor put the hack to the test.

I’ll gladly admit that I spend far too much time on TikTok. My favorite community I want to belong to? BeautyTok. If you’re wondering why, it’s because I can find incredible beauty product recommendations and even hacks like the one I’m about to share with you without even trying. The trick in question is one where people use a drugstore peel-off brow gel as a lip liner, essentially giving themselves a no-touch lip liner look.

When I saw creator Iris Beilin write about the hack (in a video that has since gone viral with over three million views), as a lipstick lover—and later lipliner hoarder—I had to try it immediately. The product used in the video is the Maybelline Tattoo Brow Easy Peel Off Tint ($15). Beilin used the shade of dark brown, but I opted for medium brown for a slightly more natural look.


The product comes in a small tube and opens to reveal a brush applicator for applying the tint. The consistency seemed a bit thick, but with the results Beilin got — and given that I was using it for something it wasn’t intended for at all — I was willing to look past that.


Just like Beilin, I applied the product directly to my clean lips like I would a regular lipstick. While doing this I found the brush a bit difficult to work with as it was much more pliable than real lipstick which made it easier to get out of the lines of my lips. I also felt that the first layer I applied was too thin, so I applied an extra layer of the product to my bottom lip to see if it would make a difference.


After applying the tint and waiting 10 minutes as recommended, I peeled the tint off. This is where I noticed that my upper lip – where I applied a thinner layer of product – didn’t come off as smoothly as my lower lip, where I applied an extra layer. Ultimately, however, this did not detract from the finished look, since both lips ended up having a similar color yield.

All in all I really liked this hack. After removing the scrub I rubbed my lips and the tint stayed in place so I can definitely wear it on days when I need my lip look to stay in place. The only thing I would do differently next time is fill in my lips a bit more with the tint so the result looks more like a gradient and less like a single line around my lips. I will say the medium brown color looks extremely natural so there wasn’t a strong contrast when I was applying other lip products I loved so you should try this hack consider a slightly lighter shade to give you a more “everyday use” Results. I will definitely use this hack again, especially for late nights or days when I just need my lipstick to last.
