I was recently contacted by ESQIDO false lashes, a company that specializes in mink false eyelashes to see if I wanted to try a few pairs out for review. Although I don't wear false lashes on an everyday basis, I have been intrigued by mink ones for a while now since they are often described as extremely luxurious and apparently all the rage in Hollywood.
At first, I admit I was concerned about what exactly the lashes are made of but was relieved to find out that all of ESQIDO's lashes use ethically sourced fur. The fur is collected from the natural shedding/molting cycles of mink animals and then sterilized to ensure that they are hypoallergenic and suitable for wear. The fur is then individually hand-crafted, one strand at a time to create the perfect set of lashes.
I decided on the following two lash designs: Oh So Sweet (top photo) and Lashlorette (bottom photo). They both look quite similar but Lashlorette features slightly longer lashes with more obvious criss-crossing.
Given the density of these lashes, you'd think they'd be pretty uncomfortable but that's actually not the case. The soft cotton band is flexible and light, so it was easy to position on application. The quality means you can also get up to 25 wears with proper care, which makes the price ($45.99) a lot easier to swallow.
If you're in the market for some fancy false lashes, I absolutely recommend ESQIDO. Their designs range from more natural to super voluminous, so there really is something for everyone. I can't wait to wear these on my next night out!
