Long live the false lash!

I am not the most daring individual when it comes to wearing false lashes, but every once in a while I find that the extra step of applying a pair of false lashes can enhance the eye in the most beautiful way. I prefer strips of lashes as opposed to individual lashes, and tend to opt for pairs that are designed to add more volume rather than outrageous length. With the shape of my eye I find a lot of the longer lashes hitting my brow bone and they're not so comfortable to wear. I also prefer lashes that get gradually longer towards the outer corner of the eye (MAC #7 lashes and Ardell Demi Wispies have been my go-tos for years, just so you get an idea of my preferences).

Enter my first foray into slightly higher end lashes... ESQIDO mink lashes

I got the Unforgettable pair to try and I have to say that hands down these are the most naturally flattering and comfortable lashes I have tried. They come in a gorgeous box, they are incredibly soft and were so easy to apply. 

I have worn them three times so far (I use the dark Duo lash adhesive and a pair of tweezers to apply them) and they still have plenty of mileage left in them. You can get them online on their official website (shipping is free for US orders, $5 for international) and they have a 60 day return/exchange policy, which is pretty great if you are unsure of which style to pick for your first purchase. I'll stop blabbing now and let the pictures speak for themselves. The pair I got are probably the most natural offering of the bunch but I cannot recommend them enough! I'm eyeing something more dramatic next...

What are your favourite false lashes?


  1. I love Esqido lashes - I discovered them recently as well!

  2. These look gorgeous!! I'm not a big lash person but I do like similar ones to you. Those that get fuller towards the outer lashes, so that they look more natural.


  3. They look great on you, they look quite natural! I never wear fake lashes. I suck at applying them...

  4. These look pretty natural surprisingly.. I am too bad at applying false lashes on me or someone else.. but they really make a huge difference to your look!
