The first time I ever wore false eyelashes was on the day of my year 10 prom, and I fell in love with them immediately. I honestly couldn’t get over what a difference they made to my overall look, and how much they opened up my eyes – I was hooked from day one. From that day, I really wanted to wear a set of lashes every single time I left my house, but I found them so awkward to apply and they began to feel uncomfortable if worn for more than a couple of hours. I settled for wearing lashes only when it was a special occasion or if I was going ‘out out’, but these were always the cheap scratchy types you can get from the ‘drugstore’. I tried many different brands, but I had never found a pair that lasted all night and didn’t irritate my eyes, that was until I was introduced to these gorgeous ESQIDO lashes.
When the lovely Brenda, got in touch about trying out ESQIDO false eyelashes, I jumped at the chance. She suggested that I should try out the Unforgettable lashes*, as she believed they’d suit me the best, and I completely agreed with her. I’ve got a habit of buying lashes have a LOT of volume, but this in turn backfires on me and makes my eyes look completely tiny and swamped by the lashes. These ESQIDO lashes are the complete opposite, and they really open my eyes up – which is a huge bonus for me (especially with a lazy eye!) They’re described on the ESQIDO website to only be level 2 on the volume scale (it goes up to 5), but I think these are more than enough for me! They’re really natural and elegant and I love how they increase in length and thickness across the lash band towards the end, which results in a subtle yet beautiful winged out effect.
These Unforgettable ESQIDO lashes are so natural looking it’s actually quite unbelieveable – they look and feel just like real eyelashes, which is why I think I love them so much. The band is handcrafted and is made from cotton, which makes them extremely comfortable to wear. I haven’t experienced any scratchiness and they haven’t made my eyes itch at all from wearing them. I don’t even feel the need to rip these off as soon as I get through the door after a night out, as they’re so incredibly comfortable, and that’s really saying something coming from me.
Previously all of the lashes I have tried have been synthetic and I think that is why they were uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time, or became scratchy on my lash line. These ESQIDO lashes are very different from anything I’ve tried before, as they’re not synthetic at all, but actually made from Mink hairs. I was really glad, and interested to read that all of ESQIDO’s lashes are actually handcrafted from the softest and finest ethically sourced, naturally shed mink hairs. Unfortunately though, this does mean that they aren’t suitable for you Vegans out there.
I absolutely love the packaging for these lashes too – I mean rose gold and fresh white – what is there not to like!? The box also has a magnetic close, which I really like as it means I can safely store the lashes away for my next use, instead of losing them like I normally do, or trying to stuff them back into a flimsy cardboard packaging.
The Unforgettable Lashes retail for $32, which roughly works out to about £20. Although these are obviously more pricey than the usual eyelashes that you’ll come across, I honestly think they’re worth every penny. Unlike synthetic eyelashes you can actually wear these up to 25 times, working out at less than a pound a time, which I personally think is great value. One thing I would mention however, is that these lashes don’t actually include any glue. That wasn’t an issue for me at all as I already have loads, but I thought it was worth noting.
I’ve worn these lashes about 4 times now, including last weekend when I wore them for nearly 10 hours, and they didn’t budge or irritate me throughout the whole time! You can see the picture below that I posted on Instagram of me wearing the lashes out last week. Unfortunately it’s not the best picture (Sorry I’m camera shy!), but hopefully you can see what a difference they make, and I’ll be able to get a better one for you guys next time I wear these beautiful lashes.
If you couldn’t already tell, I’m a huge fan of these lashes, and I’ve already got my eye on a couple of other pairs that I’m going to buy after pay day (hurry up!!). I think they look absolutely gorgeous on, and they’re 100% the most comfortable lashes I’ve ever worn, and have definitely become my all time favourite lashes. It’s a bold claim, but it’s definitely true! Reading this post back, I can see how this would definitely look like this post is sponsored, considering how much I’m raving about these lashes – but it’s honestly not. I was sent these lashes from ESQIDO, but as always my reviews are 100% honest, and if I didn’t like them, I would definitely let you guys know about it!
