Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you, my new favourite lashes.
Seriously, these are AMAZING.
They're by ESQIDO and they're the Unforgettable lashes which give the most beautifully subtle lift to the eyes.
ESQIDO have been on my wishlist for sometime now as I've heard that their mink lashes are used by some of the worlds top makeup artists as well as being loved by many celebrities including Rihanna and the Victoria's Secret Angels who give me serious hair envy whenever I see them strutting their stuff on the catwalk.
However at around $32 a piece, they're not cheap and I always wondered whether they'd be worth the hype. ESQIDO very generously gave me the opportunity to try them out and after using these lashes over the last month and with them still looking brand new now, I'd say they're absolutely worth the price tag and more. These are without a doubt the best lashes I have ever used and that's not something that I would ever say lightly!
ESQIDO false lashes are unique in that they are professional grade mink lashes that have been handcrafted from naturally shed mink hairs. They're naturally fine and have a beautiful curl to them which is what makes them look so natural and incredibly lightweight.
When purchasing lashes, I usually buy those that are on a clear band because I find that they're easy to manipulate and move into place and they're usually much more comfortable than the lashes with the thicker black bands. That's because the black band on a lot of false lashes is made of plastic and it can feel so hard and rigid which not only makes them so annoying to apply but it means that they don't stay on as easily either. When the Unforgettable lashes arrived and I saw that they hand a black band rather than the clear, I automatically assumed that they would be exactly the same but I was so wrong.
The band that the ESQIDO false lashes have is actually handcrafted from a light and soft cotton which makes them very easy to put on and comfortable to wear. You can really tell that as well because you can wear them all day without them irritating you or feeling too heavy.
The great thing about ESQIDO lashes is that they're handcrafted to last. Rather than a lot of synthetic lashes that you'll get a few uses out of at the most, these are built to be reused up to 25 times. When you think about it like that, these lashes are actually incredibly good value for money, at a cost per wear of $1.28!
The packaging of the ESQIDO lashes is simply stunning. They come in a slimline, heavy duty cardboard box with rose gold details that look so luxe and pretty; ESQIDO have really set themselves apart from other lash brands.
Lash adhesive is available separately from ESQIDO, you don't get any inside the box which I actually prefer as I already have my own tube of lash glue anyway so I never use the ones that actually come with false lashes. I use the Duo Lash Adhesive but when I order from ESQIDO in the future, if I've ran out of my lash glue, I'd definitely try the their latex free eyelash glue as after trying their lashes, I trust that it would work well.
Choosing false lashes online is so easy on the ESQIDO website as each lash page is so detailed. They tell you everything that you need to know about each particular style of lash, right down to the length of the lashes and the amount of volume that they're made to give. There's full care instructions on the website too, including removal and cleaning of the lashes, and information as to how to apply them, which is in addition the the booklet that comes inside the lash box with full instructions on. Their site is so interactive too; you can see before and after images of the lashes on a person so that you can see the effect that they give.
I picked the Unforgettable lashes which are designed to look light, elegant and fluttery which they certainly do. They have a gradient effect with the lashes increasing in length and width across the band and they fan out at the edges. This gives them that winged out, fluttery look that is incredibly feminine and flattering on so many eye shapes.
The Unforgettable lashes were easy to remove from the packaging with tweezers and I trimmed them down to fit my lash line with ease. What I liked about the shape of them is that although I needed to trim them down so that they weren't too wide, in doing so, they did not lose their shape or effect. They applied effortlessly and are genuinely the easiest lashes I have ever put on because they hold their shape so well whilst being easy to move into place.
I cannot begin to tell you how comfortable these are to wear. They're so lightweight yet they have so much substance in that they offer lots of length and volume. They made me feel girlie, feminine and, you know what, a little bit sexy! They're so fluttery and pretty and if I had £1 for every compliment I've had while wearing them, I'd be well on my way to buying that Rolex I've been lusting after. Ladies you simply MUST try these lashes.
I took these photographs when I was at an unforgettable event where Faye Tozer performed and I wore this gorgeous dress. I needed to pay careful attention to my makeup to make sure that it really complimented the dress and how special it was and I really think that these lashes helped me to do that as they really lifted my face and opened my eyes. In the next couple of weeks I have another daytime makeup post going up where I'm wearing these lashes and you'll be able to see them on me in even more detail. Honestly girls, they're amazing and I'd urge you to get them!
Esqido false lashes are available direct from their website and they offer FREE shipping to the UK and USA as well as international delivery and they have a fabulous 60 day guarantee.
When you go onto their website, if you're wanting to purchase some lashes, I'd recommend signing up to their mailing list as you'll receive 10% off your first order. I've just done that as I want to place my first order when I've finished up using the Unforgettable lashes. Plus when you create an account with them, they have a loyalty scheme called ESQIDO Rewards whereby you receive points with each pair of lashes you buy which converts to a gift card when you've reached so many points, that you can use to redeem against more lashes. The threshold is so achievable; every pair of lashes is worth 100 points and the points can be redeemed at 300, 500 and 700 points for a $10, $20 or $30 gift card respectively which I think is so fabulous.
They also offer a Referral Program where if you refer a friend to ESQIDO and they sign up, they'll get a $10 credit towards their first purchase and when they have made that purchase, you'll get a $10 credit on your account to spend on ESQIDO lashes for yourself. This is my referral link if you would like to use it but please be aware that I haven't been told or asked to share it from the brand whatsoever, I've just found it online myself when I have signed up so that I can buy my own lashes from them. I don't get any kick back or anything for sharing my referral link other than what everyone else gets in the Referral Program.
I guess I'm just super excited to have discovered the best false lashes ever!
