As a beauty blogger, I’m quite surprised with myself for not ever giving false lashes a real chance. I’ve tried them twice and they were uncomfortable. I watched so many YouTube tutorials and could never get the hang of it. So when Esqido contacted me to do a review on a pair of their false lashes, I had to really think about it. They were really nice to send over tutorials and give me the chance to try them out even after I told them about my struggle with using them. If they had faith in me, then I had to give it a chance! And boy am I glad I did… I’m loving these Esqido lashes!
Esqido sells professional grade mink lashes. They’re handcrafted from the softest and finest mink hair, and are so natural looking. Combined with the curls of each hair, these ultra fine lashes give your eyes a natural lift. Since I don’t really wear false lashes, I wasn’t sure which pair to pick because they have a TON. The great thing about Esqido is that they have an online lash quiz which will help narrow down the choices for you based on your eye shape and what look you want to achieve. One of the options that I ended up choosing was Illumina. These mink lashes are specially designed with their multi-curl process for an extreme amount of volume while still looking natural. Subtly criss-crossed with a gradient of lashes towards the outer corners, this style gives you voluminous, sultry eyes without looking over the top.
With the pair of false lashes, Esqido also included their Companion Eyelash Glue. Their lash glue is white but turns invisible once applied so you won’t see it. It’s formulated specially to work with mink lashes and is latex-free. When you twist off the cap and pull out the application wand, you’ll notice it’s a thin tip wand – perfect for getting just the right amount of glue on your lashes.
I watched many tutorials before getting started with these lashes. No one really tells you that you can trim your lashes.. so no wonder false lashes always bothered me. The first thing I did was line up the pair of lashes to my eye and cut off the extra part that doesn’t fit. I applied the eyelash glue across the band and waited about 20-30 seconds for the glue to dry and get tacky. I then applied it on top of my natural lashes and held it into place for a few seconds to ensure it stuck on.
At first I felt kind of over the top. My eyes felt a bit heavy, but that quickly went away after I got used to wearing the lashes. The only thing I need to remember is that I should apply a bit of mascara on my natural lashes before applying Esqido’s lashes. My natural lashes are dirty blonde and very noticeable against the black lashes. I applied them another day and put one coat of mascara on first, which made a huge difference!
Esqido’s wide selection of false lashes range from $28-32 USD each.
They’re a bit on the pricier side for false lashes, but the quality is really good and the packaging for the mink lashes and companion lash glue is so pretty (I’m a sucker for good packaging)! Have you guys tried these lashes before? If not, what do you think?
