I recently leaped into the world of mink false eyelashes and it was a life changing experience. Thanks to Esqido False Eyelashes I will forever be obsessed with the quality and craftsmanship that comes with a pair of mink lashes. If you want to read my original review and learn why I fell so hard follow this link.
To sum it up in a few words, Esqido sells a carefully curated collection of cruelty free mink eyelashes. There are 11 showstopping styles – two are brand new! – that are hand made from hairs found through the natural shedding process. Each hair is sewn individually onto the softest cotton band in complex patterns to mimic the way real lashes overlap and mesh together. Each pair of lashes is impeccibly made and go through a lengthy process to ensure they are of the best quality. The way they feel once applied, the way they blend with your natural lashes and the fact that you can wear them up to 25 times makes for an incomparable experience.
Well today I have a couple of new additions to my Esqido collection to share with you, Esqido was kind enough to send over their brand new Companion Eyelash Glue and another pair of lashes in the style BFF.
The Esqido Eyelash Glue retails for $10 USD and is an invisible glue specifically designed for mink lashes but is suitable for every kind of lash. It is formulated without latex and formaldehyde and is made of 45% water so it is perfect for the most sensitive of eyes. It’s gentle scent-free mixture is meant to extend the life of your lashes as well as the length of time you can wear them because it will not cause any sort of irritation.
The glue itself comes in a stunning frosted tube with a rose gold screw cap, similar to a lip gloss tube, inside it has a long wand with a fine brush tip. The brush tip takes the mess right out of using lash glue because it gives you a ton of flexibility and control. Instead of squeezing glue out of a tube you have the ability to simply brush the glue right where you want it. You use less glue in the process while the actual lashes and your hands stay nice and clean.
A little goes a long way with this glue, a thin coat along the band will practically super glue the lashes to your eye for 10 hrs strong. The Companion is the kind of glue where you can’t see it, you can’t feel it and you might just forget all about it because your lashes will stay in place all night and not move an inch. With this glue you will have no problem with your lashes shifting, lifting in the corners or buckling from the lash line. They will not move until you are ready to take them off at the end of the night.
Now onto the lashes, I went into an immense amount of detail on how each lash is made and reviewed the style Oh So Sweet in my last post so make sure to check that out but today we are looking at the style called BFF.
‘BFF’ ($35 USD) is another stunning set of lashes, they are part of the medium volume category just like ‘Oh So Sweet’ but these lashes are a bit more natural so they are perfect for everyday or those special occasions when you want to look glamorous but not too dramatic. The hairs taper from shorter to longer in the centre of the band and they overlap to mimic the look of natural lashes. They give the perfect hint of length and volume to open up your eyes and make you look super sophisticated and glamorous. I love these lashes for adding a bit of glamour to my makeup looks and I can imagine they would be stunning for something like a prom or a wedding.
The BFF lashes and the Companion Eyelash Glue are the ultimate falsie powerhouse. I tested them together on two occasions and was so impressed. I also tried the glue with some of my other lashes and was wowed by the difference it made. All of the lashes were so much easier to apply and they wore longer and better than ever before. I also used a lot less glue that I typically would.
In terms of removal it was super simple, I just took a bit of oil-free makeup remover on a q-tip and ran it along the band while it was still on my eye. I let it sit for a few seconds while the glue dissolved and then the lash just popped off. I then used another q-tip and tweezers to remove the rest of the glue and put them back in their case. I found that if you use a thin layer of glue, it is super easy to remove but if you use too much it will become sticky and a little more difficult to pick off.
Overall, I was thoroughly impressed with both offerings from Esqido, the Companion Eyelash Glue and the BFF lash are complete winners in my book and new must haves.
You can purchase both products from Esqido’s website.
