Daiso Eyebrow Gel

I love high-end (and some luxury) products, but I also like some affordable and very cheap ones. By very cheap, I mean Daiso-cheap makeup. For some reason, I always find myself buying eyebrow products from them.

Daiso is a 100-yen shop, similar to a dollar store, that has a lot homeware, kitchenware, stationery, bath, and makeup items. Their products are usually priced at PhP88. Some go as low as PhP22 and high as PhP288. Daiso has a lot of makeup that you can do a full face with. Though not all are “Made in Japan,” which I prefer from them. I try not to be picky, but I need to careful with what I put on my face because it’s difficult and more expensive to deal with skin irritation and breakouts.

Daiso Eyebrow Gel, 4mL, PhP88

This is the only available eyebrow gel in Daiso Glorietta branch, but I have seen black and clear in other branches.

(Sorry about the quality of the photos. They were actually out of focus, which I should have checked with my glasses on. :/ I tried not to make them painful to look at.)

Looks so phallic 😆

The wand is similar to a mascara’s. I was worried to use it at first because I might put on too much. I prefer a small wand similar to Essence Make Me Brow Eyebrow Gel Mascara and Benefit Gimme Brow Volumizing Fiber Gel. So I apply lightly and carefully to also not go beyond the brows.

The gel does have a brown tint that looks a bit orange on my skin. I find I still need to fill in sparse areas of my brows. When I put on more to fill in, which meant more product application, my eyebrows felt they were glued. They felt so stiff each time I raised my brows. Fortunately, my brows were undamaged after I removed it because it was really difficult to take it off. 😥 Longevity is good though since it kept my eyebrows in place without losing color for many hours.

For the hold and the very cheap price of Php88, I can recommend this, as long as you don’t put on too much. But its orange-brown finish might not work for everyone. The clear gel might be the best option for the hold.
