Product Description

Best in quality with sophisticated design created exclusively for you



Pigmentation & Color:

There are four colors available - Dark Brown, Brown, Black and Grey. I bought the Dark Brown and Brown ones. Dark Brown is a dark chocolate brown, and Brown is a medium gold brown. These two are quite pigmented - one swipe is all it takes for the color to show, but the intensity is definitely buildable.

Swatches:


On my brows






I'm using the Dark Brown one in my FOTD here.

Texture & Scent:
This eyebrow pencil goes on a little waxy, but thats the way with most auto brow pencils. It does applies smoothly though.

There's a very faint plastic scent for this product, but i can hardly smell it once on!

Packaging:



This eyebrow pencil is typical of your usual "auto" eyebrow pencils - it comes with a twist-up mechanism on one end, and a brow comb on the other end (which is really fantastic btw!).

The lash comb ends:



You get about an inch of product in each tube:



The packaging it came in:



Time Test:
This one lasts more than 8 hours on my lids, but fades quickly in humid weather!

Price & Availability:
This liner is priced at RM5 and is available at most Daiso stores.


My $0.02:

Alot of people love the old Daiso brow pencil, so when Daiso came to my island, i thought i'd pick one up and try! Unfortunately the old packaging is nowhere to be seen and is probably discontinued already, so i thought i'd just give these a try since they are so cheap!

And you know what? I'm really loving it!! :D The Brown one is a little too light for my skintone, but the Dark Brown one is a perfect match for me! :D

Its twist up mechanism is literally idiot proof! And because its an automatic one, you don't ever have to sharpen it :) And oh, the lash comb is great and so convenient! :D

The only complaint i have is the lack of the ingredient list on the packaging. I would want to know what is the pencil made of.

At RM5 each it's really dirt cheap. I don't think i'll be getting the MAC one anytime soon because i could've gotten 13 of these at that price, but i'll let you know how they compare if I do! :D

Needless to say i'll definitely repurchase! :D

  7. Hi Jenn! :-) Wow! what a great find!

    I'm gonna head for my Daiso. And I'm gonna buy grey color too!

    Apparently, grey makes it a very subtle and natural color. Dunno but will try! :-D
