Daiso’s Eye Brow Coat [$] x KATE Eyebrow Mascara in LB-1 [[Two in one REVIEW]]
Our brows are a very important part of our makeup routine (except that I’m so lazy I usually neglect it and hope that no one notices :3) especially when we dye our hair because most of us don’t dye our eyebrows along with it. One way to get around that is by using eyebrow mascara or eyebrow pencils or even powder.
I am a very very lazy person, so I just use eyebrow mascara.
Today’s review will be on two products! KATE’s Eyebrow Mascara in LB-1 and Daiso’s Eye Brow Coat!
I first got to know about this mascara through POPTEEN’s Kumicky about two years back but could never quite try it out because it wasn’t in Singapore at that time. Thank god we’ve got the brand at Watsons now :3
Also used by many other Japanese models, this mascara is a quick way to mask our brow’s natural colour.
I really like how the tube is so compact so it fits into my makeup case really well and I don’t have to worry about touch-ups and stuff because of my eyebrow coat (I’ll cover that later in this post )
Each tube comes with about 7g of product and retails for 850 Yen (about 13.00 SGD) in Japan. I bought mine on my trip there last year and I haven’t run out yet because I only use a small amount of product each time.
I’m not exactly sure how much it goes for in Singapore but it’s really quite economical compared to say, MAC which is 8g for 15.00 USD which is about 19.00 SGD? And that’s taking the US price though I haven’t quite tried MAC out yet, so I can’t quite compare between the both
This comes in two shades LB-1 (the one shown here) and LB-2 (which I will review in later post -winks-). Now, compared to LB-2, which is a more golden shade, this one works the best for me because my hair colour is closer to Yui Kanno’s colour.
:3 If you have relatively more golden hair, like Kumicky, for example, then LB-2 would probably work better for you.
As you can see, the wand is actually like a standard mascara wand, except that it’s a little shorter for better control. Just two swipes is enough for me to cover my natural brow colour
One thing to note though, the product may actually clump if too much is applied at one shot, so if you plan to use more than one coat of mascara on your brows, make sure you give it some time to dry before applying a second coat.
So Jae, is this the only eyebrow correcting tool in the market?
Nope! We’ve got other products out there like eyebrow powders and pencils!
Is this the only brand that makes eyebrow mascaras?
Definitely not dearie! There are also other brands that make eyebrow mascaras, like Palty for example.
How about eyebrow powders?
Canmake recently released an eyebrow powder dear! Haha, I’ve to try it out actually…
I don’t like to use mascara on my brows…
And that’s alright, love! XD Different people have different methods, I’m just very lazy, so I prefer this mascara <3 You could try using pencils and powders as well!
How should I apply it? :3
I usually just follow my natural brow line… And I kind of flick the ends outwards so it gives the illusion of it being quite thin at the ends? It’s a cheater’s method of making brows look defined.
Now comes Daiso’s Eye Brow Coat.
It’s only two bucks and trust me, it works.
It’s like a nail polish thing that it dries clear so it will keep your mascara/pencil/whatever in place for the whole day. I can totally vouch for it because I’ve tried using it for varying numbers of hours and it’s never once failed me.
This image was from a photo shoot took place under the hot sun. Eight hours later, it didn’t melt at all – that’s what I call staying power!
If there’s bad one thing I have to say about the Daiso Brow Coat? It’ll be that the bottle is actually glass so it may not be a good idea to throw one’s bag about with this in tow. :3
Is it sticky?
Well… It’ll be a little tacky at first, but it will soon dry up to form a layer over your brows so that the colour cannot get rubbed off.
Does it smell? >_<
Hmm. I just took a whiff of it directly out of the bottle and it smelt a little bit like cough syrup :3 But once it dries, there won’t be a scent.
How do I remove it, Jae?!
I usually use my Shu Uemura Cleansing Oil, love! But I’ve also used my Clinique’s Take The Day Odd Eye Makeup Remover on it before and that worked fine as well!
So that’s all I have for you today, darling! Haha, hope this was useful! <3
