* I was sent these products for review purposes: all opinions are my own *
Hey everyone welcome back to my blog! Today I have a review of some Esqido products which were kindly sent to me by their PR team.
They specialise in false lashes, however they’re now branching out into the world of eyeliners. We have a lot to get through so let’s get started!
Faux Mink and Synthetic eyelashes are a synthetic type of lash created to mimic real mink lashes but they are cruelty free and vegan friendly. They are a great option as they are becoming more and more realistic looking as formulation and creation technology improves. Esqido Lashes say “We took this concept of eyelash extensions, and turned it into a strip based lash anyone could apply anywhere, easily” – read more HERE
Their lashes have been seen on Victoria’s Secret stars, Candice Swanepoel and Adriana Lima, aswell as Rihanna, Gigi Hadid, Olivia Culpo and YouTube sensations Jaclyn Hill and Shani Grimmond.
GIN & TONIC LASHES
Esqido site states that “ESQIDO’s Unisyn™ lashes are handcrafted with our harmonic blend of ultra-fine fibres, joined together by a remarkably soft and flexible cotton band. It redefines the meaning of a perfect union; weightless, beautiful, and natural looking.” – read more HERE
…boyyyyy are they correct.
The Gin and Tonic lashes are definitely the best false eyelashes I’ve ever worn. They are natural looking, so don’t appear to fake, however they also really add beauty to your eyes to feel feminine and beautiful.
They are medium in volume and they’re made from ultra fine synthetic fibres with a handcrafted cotton band. The best part about these lashes? They’re reusable! If you find your lashes being coated in sticky, dried up glue, try rubbing small amounts of make up remover onto the hand until they’re clean and ready to use again. With proper care, they should last you a long time!
To apply, ensure you’re being gentle and don’t tug on the lashes to take them out of the packaging. Most lashes need trimming on my eyes personally to get a natural fit that sits well on my lids. Apply the glue to the band and waft the lash for a couple of seconds for the glue to become tacky, then press the lash onto the base of your real lashes and hold until stuck.
COMPANION EYELASH GLUE
This lash glue offers a strong, sticky hold to your lashes so they will last all day without you having to worry about the corners coming up towards the end of the day. The glue gets very tacky within seconds so there’s no need to wait and waft the lash round for long, just a couple of seconds will do for this one!
This formula will also be great for those with sensitive skin and delicate eyes as it is developed to be latex free, hypoallergenic and paraben free. The brush of the glue makes application easy too!
The glue is white, but dries clear so don’t worry about having to disguise the glue because you can’t see it at all once it dries – this again helps the lashes to appear more natural. You get 0.18 fl oz of product and it expires after one year.
These are so soft and creamy which makes application easy! If you want to smudge out the liner you have to work quickly as they dry fast.
On the packaging of the eyeliners it says not to get into the eyes, so I’m really not sure if you can use them in the waterline so I’ve just lined them on the top to help disguise the lash band.
The website states that these lashes are like a gel liner in terms of formula, but they’re presented as a pencil. I really like how they wind up instead of having to sharpen, it’s much more convenient!
I used the brown liner as an eyebrow pencil too and it worked great! It literally stayed in place all day!
I applied my make up as normal and then added the black liner to the top of my lids and applied the Gin&Tonic eyelashes with the companion glue.
– 11.00 – application
– 20:00 – removal. Everything was still perfect and just the way I applied it! The glue is sensational!
