ESQIDO Unforgettable Mink False Eyelashes

ESQIDO Unforgettable Mink False Eyelashes* - $32

I've always been slightly obsessed with making my lashes look as long & voluminous as possible. In fact I currently use three different mascaras every single day in order to achieve my preferred look. However sometimes mascara alone just isn't enough. Lash extensions are something that I would never consider as I've heard some real horror stories about the damage they can cause to your own lashes but I'm happy to use something a little more temporary. False lashes are one of the best ways to add some instant glamour to your look. A pair of lashes & some glue are all you need to take your makeup from day to night. I tend to flit between Eylure, Ardell & Kiss lashes as they're all fairly cheap & readily available. I struggle to get more than a couple of uses out of them though as they get caked with glue & mascara and generally become a bit gross. If longevity & comfort are important to you when buying falsies then you definitely need to try a pair of ESQIDO mink eyelashes.

ESQIDO's luxurious false eyelashes are like no other. Most false lashes are made from synthetic fibres which look unnatural whilst feeling heavy & uncomfortable to wear for extended periods of time. They also come with a plastic band which feels irritating & can be harder to blend in with your own lashline. I always have to coat them with mascara to blend them in the rest of my lashes which inevitably shortens their lifespan. ESQIDO use naturally shed mink hairs which are softer & lighter than synthetic fibres. They feel super lightweight & comfortable to wear plus the hairs have a lovely glossy sheen to them. Every strand is ultra fine with tapered ends to give you lashes that blend seamlessly with your own. ESQIDO also use a handcrafted cotton band which is infinitely more flexible, comfortable & easier to apply than a plastic band. I would liken the difference between ESQIDO lashes & synthetic lashes to the difference between a human hair lace front wig & a wig from a fancy dress shop. The quality just speaks for itself.

The lashes I have here are in the Unforgettable style. They have a gradient of increasing length & thickness across the lash band for a subtle yet beautiful winged out effect. They're really natural looking & are an ideal accompaniment to my usual cat flick liner. They make my lashes look really soft & feathery. There's something very sweet & romantic about them so I think they would be perfect for a first date or bridal makeup. I would definitely wear something like these when I get married. The band is quite long so you'll need to trim it down before applying them. I used one coat of L'Oreal Miss Manga mascara on my top lashes, popped some DUO Dark Lash Adhesive along the band & applied the lashes with my tweezers. I found the application process to be a lot easier with these. You don't really need to break the spine first to apply them & they adhered to the inner & outer corners with little effort. The final look is seamless & you don't even have to apply another coat of mascara on top.

Each pair of ESQIDO lashes comes in this utterly gorgeous white & rose gold presentation box. You'll want to hang onto it for storage because ESQIDO lashes can be worn up to 25 times! Although they're much more expensive than drugstore lashes, you can get so many more uses out of them which makes them excellent value for money. Whether you're a total beginner or a lash expert, mink false eyelashes are definitely the way to go. ESQIDO make a range of styles suited for different eye types with a choice of light, medium or full volume so there really is something for everyone in their collection. They even have a little guide on their website to help you find the perfect false lashes for you. If you are at all concerned about customs charges then don't be. Although they are an American brand with prices in USD they actually have a distribution centre here in the UK so your lashes will arrive quickly without any nasty surprises at your door. ESQIDO's mink lashes have to the prettiest & most comfortable I have ever worn. I love absolutely everything about them & I can't see myself going back to synthetic lashes anytime soon.
