Testing out Esqido False Lashes

False lashes have always both intrigued and scared me; I’ve always admired them on the various YouTubers and bloggers that I follow but they never worked for me.  I’ve had a pair of Sephora lashes in my drawer for years and attempted to apply them a few times without success. Eventually I gave up and decided to just stick with mascara.

Then last month, Esqido contacted me and offered me a pair of their false eyelashes to try out.  I was a little hesitant at first but figured it was a good way to force me to try them again but hopefully with better results this time around!

I chose their X & O style from their new Unisyn line – which are world’s first true premium synthetic false eyelashes, made with a blend of ultra-fine synthetic fibres for an ultra-natural look. Esqido describes the X & O style as a medium volume lash that is flirty and romantic with subtle ultra-fine, criss-crossed strands.

Esqido also sent me a tube of their ESQIDO Companion eyelash glue.  This glue applies white but dries clear and claims a strong hold all day.  It’s also latex-free, safe for sensitive eyes and dries within seconds.  It has a brush tip applicator, which makes applying it super easy.  I also must admit I’m a fan of the pretty rose gold packaging.

Before application, I did a little bit of homework to help prepare myself.  If you’re new to lash application, I’d recommend watching Mirellabellebeauty’s video, whether you’re using Esqido Lashes or not.  Esqido also has easy-to-follow application steps available on their website.

After following her steps (aside from trimming the lashes – I didn’t feel I needed to), it only took me two tries to apply them, which I was pretty proud of!  The cotton band was easy to line up to my lash line, the glue was a good consistency (not too thick, not too thin) and as claimed, dried quickly (but not too quickly).  Best of all, these literally did not budge all day; that glue practically bonded these to my eyes (in a good way).  While they were applied securely, removal was a cinch.  As per their instructions, I applied oil-free makeup remover along my lash line with a q-tip to dissolve the glue and they removed easily.

While these aren’t something I’d wear everyday, I’ve already wore them on a night out and plan to wear them to some events this Summer, and bring them with me the next time I travel.  I find them pretty without being overly dramatic and really just add that extra something to my eye look.

Overall I was impressed with the quality of both the lashes and lash glue; while I don’t have much to compare these to, these were a million times easier to apply compared to the Sephora set I own (which I could never get to work) and the glue was fantastic.  While I look forward to trying out additional brands of false lashes in the future, Esqido has set the bar high for me and I suspect they’ll be hard to beat.

Have you ever tried Esqido lashes?

    • It’s much easier to do when you find a pair of lashes that works for you – trial and error! I was discouraged after trying a few pairs that Youtubers recommended and I couldn’t get them to work for me.

  1. I have two pairs from this line (Heart & Soul and Gin & Tonic) as well as the lash glue and I agree and they’re amazing! This is the best lash glue I’ve used and it doesn’t leave residue on your eyes for days!
