Hey everyone! Over the past year or so I’ve been wearing false lashes a bit more often. While I’m no lash aficionado, I’ve become a lot more comfortable using them for special occasions like weddings, and believe me I’ve been to a ton of weddings recently! I literally just got rid of my last pair of E.L.F. lashes when I was contacted by Esqido Mink Lashes days later, letting me know about their brand and product. Timing couldn’t have been better considering I was looking to get a new pair and a new lash glue to boot (my dark tinted DUO glue was not cutting it)! So needless to say, I was thrilled they reached out to me and honored to work with them on this blog post!
*Disclosure* Before I continue, I want to disclose that I received these lashes and the Companion Lash Glue free from Esqido to review, all opinions are my own! I won’t get paid for anything you click or purchase through this post though, all links are here for your convenience only 🙂
Browsing their website I was immediately impressed. They have a wide selection of styles to choose from, from natural to more dramatic. I also really liked that they had a guide to help you pick out a pair based on your eye shape, your experience applying lashes, your style in general etc.
They kindly allowed me to pick out the lashes I wanted to try, so I chose a more natural style I’d be more likely to wear sometime soon. The pair I picked is one of their mink styles, Little Black Lash ($28.00), though they also have synthetic lashes as well. Though I love bold lashes for evening, I felt comfortable wearing these to a daytime birthday party since they aren’t super dramatic!
I was impressed with the nice packaging. Everything came in sleek white boxes sealed in a plastic pouch. The lashes themselves were in a magnetically enclosed white case that opens from the front. It also comes with directions on how to apply and care for the lashes. You can tell these are high quality and effort went into them.
The back of the box also shows the style and the volume rating:
Their Companion Lash Glue ($10.00),which kinda reminds me of a tube of lip gloss, has a really pretty rose gold handle and frosted tube. Definitely a step up from what I used to use! I was impressed overall with the rose gold detailing and their packaging overall.
I found their lash glue super easy to apply. It’s a thin brush applicator so plenty of control and no mess which I can totally appreciate. Like most white lash glue it dries clear- another relief. I used to use a dark tinted lash glue so any mistakes or globs were easier to see. No thanks, I’m sticking to the white glue from now on! And no more squeeze tubes for me!
It was really easy to lay the Esqido falsies on my lashes and maneuver into place, which was so not the case with my last pair from a different brand. To be fair, not sure if my last pair was just older and used too many times or if I’m just better at putting them on now, but it’s something I noticed immediately.
Here are my lashes before applying Esqido lashes:
And after applying the Esqido Lashes:
As you can see, this particular style is great for daytime if you’re looking for a little extra on your lashes. If you’re a little intimidated by falsies or don’t use them a ton, I highly recommend going with this style. I definitely love more dramatic lashes for evening so I would love to try one of their other styles as well!
They felt relatively comfortable, I wouldn’t say I couldn’t feel them at all, I definitely feel false lashes no matter what, but they felt secure and didn’t seem like they were going anywhere. If you ever felt your false lashes pop off around the inner corner or felt insecure they weren’t going to stay in place (been there, not cool!), these were thankfully NOT like that! I didn’t have to question that at all. Plus I think you’ll be able use these multiple times given you take care of them properly.
One thing to consider is price. As you might have seen, these are a little more expensive (most lashes on the site were close to $30), so you’d have to decide if that’s something you’re willing to spend. I’d say given the luxury feel and packaging, the price point does seem to make sense. The lashes definitely seem sturdy and well made, and for me definitely a treat!
Again, not getting paid for anything you click on or buy through my page, but if you’re interested in this brand, definitely check out their website Esqido Lashes and don’t forget to check out their Companion Lash Glue as well!
Thanks again to Esqido for allowing me to try these!
How do you feel about false lashes? Do you wear them frequently or save them for special occasions? Have you tried this brand before?
