Packaging

Dual-cap; on one side you get the product and on the other, you get a soft bristle brush. Plastic is quite sturdy. I like the idea that the caps are of different sizes and one of them is transparent. Hence, it is very easy to identify different ends.

The spoolie is not too hard, it works for its purpose.

The pencil comes in a slanted tip for easy application on brows. 

The picture shows the pencil after prolonged usage (P.s. Totally slipped my mind to take photos before trying out this product).




Colour options

To what I can recall, there are two colour options; light brown and dark brown. I picked the dark brown colour than because my hair was a darker shade of brown last year. (It is black now). On top of that, I had a difficult time using pencils of light brown in shade; took me tremendous effort to shade my brows.





Colour payoff

Colour payoff is decent and pigmented enough. Just a little of this product is enough to finish the look.




Application/On brows

Application is quite straight forward and it is effortless to draw with this Daiso eyebrow pencil. I would say it is rather easy to shape your eyebrows using this pencil. The product came out very full with every stroke.




Swatch/Effect

The colour payoff for just one application.


Compared to many other eyebrow pencils, this Daiso Eyebrow Glamorous Handy Pencil gives a very good colour payoff in just one stroke, perhaps a tad too much. It is very hard to achieve the soft brows look despite using a light hand.

No matter how gentle/light I tried to control my application, my brows look too harsh. 
You can't really tell here but it can be a bit harsh and this was done with a very light hand and a lot of blending.




Lasting power

Quite poor actually. It will feather out at the end of the day, leaving my eyebrows looking out of shape. Transfers/smudges easily too.




Water-resistant

Quite ok.




Overall

Enough said I don't like it. I really enjoyed the previous one though. Not all Daiso eyebrow pencils are created equal haha. Check out the other one I reviewed recently. Though pigmented, the effect looks too harsh. Most of the time I feel I look like crayon shin chan (with smudgy eyebrows lol). It is too easy to go wrong with this product. 
Would not recommend giving this product a try.
