Review: Esqido False Lashes in Unforgettable

I’m wearing mink coat on my lashes, yo! Hahaha! Backstory – I hardly wear false lashes. I love the idea of them, especially on my fine and sparse lashes, and I have a few of them in my drawer for special occasions but those occasions are far and few between. Also, my inexperience in false lashes led me to some really crappy ones that were so heavy, I felt sleepy every time I put one on. I then went on to buy Japanese drugstore ones, which aren’t cheap by the way. They’re about RM50 for one pair of lashes, those Dolly Wink ones, but I like them. Not as heavy, and they still looked natural. Then, I read post after post about Esqido lashes, and every time I comment on those reviews, I tell myself I NEED to get a couple to try. They looked so darn good! So imagine my excitement when I was contacted to try their lashes. I was sent Unforgettable (US$32) and Little Black Lash (US$30). I’ve only worn Unforgettable for a wedding dinner the other day (you might have seen my Instagram photo) so let me show you first how it looks, and what I think of it.

 

 

Esqido Unforgettable

 

 

It is not as dramatic as some of the lashes they have to offer, and I appreciate it. It is not too long for me, and I like that it flares out a little at the end. First, let me just tell you, it FEELS like real lashes. Second, it’s LIGHT. I didn’t feel sleepy at all! You know, it wasn’t a power lifting session for my lids. And third, it looks so GOOD on.

Doesn’t it look like I have naturally beautiful lashes? I had to trim 1 cluster of lashes because it was too long, but other than that, they fit very well. These photos were taken right before I went out for the event, in front of my vanity. So, a little poor lighting (which emphasized my pores, dammit!) but you’re supposed to focus on my eyes 🙂

The lashes are supposed to last you quite a few wears (up to 25 times), but that’s where the setback is for me. I don’t think I can wear it more than 10 times. On inexperienced hands like mine, the mink lashes fall off as I tried to remove the lashes. I promise I tried to be as gentle as I could. I didn’t use any oil based eye makeup remover and removed as recommended (you can read it here). I still found it difficult to remove, and the last I checked, I didn’t accidentally use super glue. Anyway, after I got the lashes off, I tried to remove some residue glue on the band. That’s when disaster happened. The lashes started to fall off. I stopped immediately after I realized the beautiful lashes are losing hair! What did I do wrong? Maybe I wasn’t gentle enough? That was enough to spook me out, so I just left it as that. It’s not very dirty anyway, and maybe it’s my OCD tendencies of wanting to make it as clean as possible.

Horror story over.

I still blame my inexperience for this near disaster though. I checked the lashes again (they’re precious to me, as you can tell) and was relieved to find there are no bald spots. Hahaha! I will try the Little Black Lash soon, and I will report again my experience with removing the lashes. Maybe the second time’s better. My friends definitely didn’t have a problem with them! Check out Larie’s review here, and Liz’s review here.

Do you wear false lashes? Mink false lashes at that?

    I read about these recently and they look really nice for special ocassions 🙂 Loving your eye makeup here!

    • Lily

      Thanks Parita. I only used Chanel Ebloui on my eyes. No other eye shadow!

  • They look awesome on you! And your makeup is gorgeous! I didn’t have a problem with taking these off at all-weird for sure.I don’t wear false lashes though-they’re just so much work! I don’t get how some can wear them every day.

    • Lily

      Oh tell me about it! I know some women here who won’t leave their house without false lashes. I mean. .. wha? But you don’t need false lashes Tracy. Your natural lashes are to die for!

  • Wow these are stunningly natural on you! I use the Velour mink lashes. Funny I had the same thing happen when I tried to remove the glue from the band the first time, hairs came off! So I had two uneven lashes, ended up throwing them out as they were noticeably uneven. Now I don’t bother to remove all the glue, I just take off the big chunks 🙂

    • Lily

      Hey Meiko. I’ve heard of Velour lashes too. Yeah I’m not going to bother with removing all the glue. Too much effort and too risky!

  • So pretty!
    They are really great quality. I don’t wear them in my daily looks but find them really great to amp the makeup looks for gigs and small performances. My Esqido lashes are still in great shape. They are so soft yet durable than cheaper lashes. 🙂

    • Lily

      Hi Lena, these are the most comfortable lashes I’ve tried! Well I haven’t tried that many but these are definitely the most natural I’ve seen. I need to work on my application and removal technique though. I obviously suck at it.

  • Oops! I haven’t worn mine over 10 times yet but they’re definitely not shedding…Weird. The Unforgettable set looks so pretty on you! I have it too, but unfortunately my man thinks they’re way too OTT… So I just got three more pairs in the hopes of finding one that my man approves and that I can wear at my wedding.

    • Lily

      Thanks Melissa. Not weird that the lashes fall of but it only means that I truly suck at this falsies game. lol lol

  • Yeah, I don’t try to take off ALL of the glue, just most of it, and I try not to rub too hard. The last pair I had was my favorite but it had criss-cross hairs, and THAT one shed more than usual. I think you look gorgeous! But I don’t wear them except for special occasions, too, lol – too much work.

    • Lily

      Hey Larie, I do think it takes more effort to remove than apply but the effects of these lashes make it worth it 🙂

  • Liz

    You look like TEH HOTNESS!!!

    I put mine away and sort of forgot about them. Oops. 🙂 I haven’t gotten to the point where the hairs fall out but like Larie I haven’t tried to be too meticulous with the glue. I think my favourite is still the Little Black Lash and would happily order them in the future for a grand occasion of some sort.

    • Lily

      Thanks Liz. I have yet to try Little Black Lash. I need to break it out for a Sunday out, I think. It definitely looks much more natural than Unforgettable but this pair just checks all the boxes 🙂

  • GORGEOUS, Lily! These look perfect on you – like your lashes, only better! I love how light these feel on the lids. I completely relate to your sleepy eyed feeling when wearing lashes from other brands. These don’t feel like that at all!

    • Lily

      Oh gosh those false lashes make my lids droop almost immediately. Even Eyelure ones feel heavy on me. I don’t know how I can wear other lashes now that I’ve tried these. Darn!

  • Lily

    Yup these lashes are really good 🙂

  • Hey Lily, I love your look for the wedding dinner!! I completely stopped wearing falsies as I can never get them to lie properly. And you know what? They seem to accentuate my 1-big-1-small eyes! I have the same issues as you removing them too… I seem to break them. LOL! But i wanna see the other pair too!

    • Lily

      You just reminded me that I should really get my act together and put on some makeup, take photos, etc… I will get to it eventually. It’s been so tiring though.
