Daiso eyebrow pencil dark brown swatch review

Saw some videos sharing about how good Daiso make up was so I decided to buy some back to give it a test. Eyebrow products are the only one I dare to try for now haha.

Amount of product

A brand new pencil has around 2+ cm of product available, quite decent.


Sturdy plastic - at one end, you get a twist-up product while on the other, it is the spoolie. Unlike some other brands, the plastic remained intact and even after using for some time.

The spoolie is not the softest but good enough to blend out.

Colour payoff is pretty good, even for the light brown one (not pictured).

No problem covering my black/dark brows.

Ease of use

Daiso eyebrow pencil dark brown swatch review tip

Contrary to what was promised on the packaging (triangle tip), the tip is not angled, but rather, flat. Took a few uses to shape it into the right shape.
Nonetheless, automatic brown pencil/crayon is very convenient to carry around and use. There is no need to sharpen. Quite easy to draw a pair of nice, sharp brows with it.

Colour options

There are 2 different options available - dark brown and light brown. The colours are quite warm in general; great for people with darker natural eyebrows. 


I tried the dark brown one and the colour is a little too brown for my black hair but seems to fit quite nicely with brown hair. Its intensity can look harsh on face hence a light hand is very important. Putting less of the product and blending it out works too. If you want an extremely neat and clean pair of brows, this pencil may not do the best job. However, I still find it good enough to do my daily brows with.

How it looks on mine:

I wouldn't say Daiso eyebrow pencil is smudge-proof but it does not smudge easily. Not very waterproof.

Lasting power 

Generally, eyebrow products last pretty well on me. This product mainly stayed on my brows till the end of the day, but it can fade out along the outline. Not the one with the best-lasting power but still pretty decent and acceptable.

Daiso eyebrow pencil dark brown swatch review

The CP value of this Daiso eyebrow pencil is high. This isn't in the top of my list of eyebrow products but I don't mind repurchasing/using it again. As you know, this is my second try (tried the light brown eyebrow pencil previously and the colour suited me better).

Don't have to go out of the way to buy this but if you happen to see it/don't mind trying/needed a cheap and decent eyebrow pencil or for whatever reason, this can be one of your considerations. I prefer light brown > dark brown as I feel my brows are too 'intense' whenever I use dark brown. The colour payoff is too good.
