Hi guys! Today I have an exciting and different post for you. Esqido was nice enough to allow me to select a pair of their lashes to try out. Esqido’s lashes are handcrafted and use naturally shed mink hairs. The band is made of cotton for comfort so that you can wear their lashes all day. They also sent me their Companion Eyelash Glue which is latex-free.
I chose the Esqido Oh So Sweet Lashes as they looked really fluttery and not too over-the-top (I’m a total false lash novice). For those who are unsure of what kind of lashes they might want, Esqido has a really neat quiz on their website to help you narrow down your choices.
The brush on the Companion Eyelash Glue is quite small and precise so it was very easy to get the right amount on the lash band. It became tacky quite quickly which was nice as I have found some glues take forever and I’m impatient. It took me a few attempts to get the placement right as I don’t wear false lashes very often, but even so, the lashes were really easy to take off and re-apply. I have no doubt that these would survive multiple wears if worn properly.

Once I got the hang of application the combination of the Esqido Oh So Sweet Lashes and the Eyelash Companion Glue were really easy to use. I found that they became more comfortable as I got used to them. Given that I’m a total novice with false lashes they did feel a bit foreign at first but I definitely got used to them. I did have to trim one of them on the inside to make it fit more comfortably but that was really easy to do. I absolutely love the way the Esqido Oh So Sweet Lashes look on. Something about them just pulls my otherwise pretty simple makeup look together more than normal. I’m looking forward to getting more wear out of these and ordering more in the future.
If you’re interested in trying them out you can find their lashes on their website: Esqido Mink Lashes! Their shipping rates to Canada are quite reasonable, they have a $5 flat rate option (probably one of the best flat rates I’ve seen) or they offer free shipping over $75. I should also mention, once these shipped to me I had them within a few days which was pretty impressive as well.
