False eyelashes are a great way to take your makeup to a whole new level.
We have all tried so many eyelash products, trying to achieve fuller, longer lashes and most recently Xlash has released a serum that promises to achieve this naturally. But until I manage to try that out, my favourite quick fix has to be falsies. I have been wearing them for a while now and have done a lot of experimenting with different brands, styles, and looks. I love lashes because they really do amplify any makeup look you are trying to achieve. My favorite kinds of lashes are natural styles– I never really want anyone to know I’m wearing them. I find myself wondering how I ever lived without them! That’s also how I feel about these Esqido mink lashes, what was I doing before these? And yes, you heard me right, they’re mink. Those little adorable creatures that look like ferrets… well who knew their fur makes for amazing lashes? Esqido did. Oh and don’t worry, the minks are well treated. The strands come from the natural shedding cycle of the minks, and then are sterilized and ready to go!
I chose to review two of the most popular Esqido lash styles, the ‘BFF’ and the ‘Little Black Lash’.
The ‘Little Black Lash’ is your perfect every day lash.
They look SO natural! The length is just perfect to actually make a difference when you look in the mirror, but nobody talking to you would notice they aren’t yours. I am absolutely obsessed with them for that reason. They go with any makeup look, and I can even wear them on days I don’t wear much makeup and they just add that little extra something to where I still feel put together.
The ‘BFF’ lash is your going out lash.
They’ve got sass and they’ve got length, but not TOO much! I chose them because I wanted a lash for getting dolled up- but I still didn’t want that look where the first thing you notice is big ol’ lashes. They’re just enough to give me a little extra glam, while still being a more natural style. I LOVE these lashes girls.
I can’t talk well enough about these lashes. When I first discovered the world of false eyelashes, I used Ardell and Andrea lashes from Sallys. They are disposable lashes, meaning you use them a handful of times and then throw them away. They’re around $4 per pair and I still definitely use them, but mink lashes are a different animal (get it, different animal?) Their website says they can be worn up to 25 times with proper care, although I’m pretty sure I’m getting really close to having worn them 25 times and they show no sign of being worn out any time soon. My favorite feature of these lashes has to be the cotton band. Compared to my disposable lashes, my Esqido mink lashes are actually faster and easier to put on because the cotton band makes it so easy to apply the glue. If I am in a hurry at all, I go with my Esqido lashes because I know they’ll go on quickly, and correctly. Yes they are more pricy than the disposable alternative, but for the quality and ease, I can’t help but say they’re worth it! I am now a mink lash fanatic!
To apply my lashes, I use DUO eyelash adhesive (clear), a disposable eyelash wand, and scissors to trim them to the right length for my eyes!
What do you think? Have you ever used mink lashes before, or even false eyelashes in general? What are your favorites? I’d love to hear!
