Product Regret #2

Although I usually refrain from using makeup from Daiso (except perhaps eyelash curlers and false eyelashes) I have, in the past (due to encouragement from the media) bought makeup from Daiso.

This is a product that I regret, not because it didn’t work, but because the product was not the correct shade.

This is the product; an eyebrow pencil.

The product. It does seem dark enough to work.

Notice how my eyebrows look grey. It actually looks worse in person.

What’s good about it:

It is a stiff eyebrow pen that is good for filling the eyebrows. The spoolie is helpful.

Why I didn’t like it:

The colour and that’s basically my only problem. I personally don’t think I’d buy and regularly use makeup from a place that everything is sold at MYR 5.30, however, this is absolutely your discretion.

 

Additional notes:

At MYR 5 (when I bought it) it didn’t seem like it would be that much of a disappointment since I did use it for a competition in the past. I have spoken about this particular competition and I have never really elaborated on it. It was a competition hosted by Colours Cosmetics Malaysia whereby the requirement was to do an eye look using the hand as a canvas. I was given a bunch of makeup products as gift for entering the competition and I have mentioned some of these products in my posts here, here, and here. I will attach a picture of the look I did below. So I guess, that MYR 5 spent on the eyebrow pen wasn’t wasted.

Completed

Yes, I cut up strip false eyelash and glued it down in parts one by one. The eyebrow pen was used at the tail end of the eyebrow to give it an ombre, faded out look.
