A few weeks back I was contacted by ESQIDO and asked if I wanted to try and review a set of their cruelty-free Mink Strip Lashes! Spending just a few minutes putting on a pair of false lashes is the easiest way to give yourself a makeover – look beautiful and feel refreshed without a fuss in under 5 minutes. No need to spend hours doing your hair and makeup. Naturally I was very excited to try them out, I am always interested in trying out new makeup and beauty products especially if they are coming from right here in Canada. Not only are their lashes cruelty-free and offer a natural look and feel, they offer the perfect solution for adding a bit of glam into my everyday routine when I am short on time – which is almost always! Now with just a hint of gloss on my lips, and a classic ponytail I can just add my lashes and I’m ready to go!!! For the five minutes it takes to apply lashes and throw your hair up, it makes all the difference.
The set of lashes I have ben trying out are the Stephanie Lash which are very chic and elegant. Packaged in a fun and flirty reusable white case with gold accents, they are easy to keep clean and protected from damage. This particular ESQIDO lash is an exclusive style designed in collaboration with one of my all time favorite makeup artists, Stephanie Ledda. The style features voluminous v-shaped clusters that give your eyes a beautiful wispy and lash lifting effect. One of the first things I noticed about these lashes, are that they are crafted to a high standard, each hair had been carefully placed and the attention to detail is amazing. I found the mink lashes a lot easier to apply than the synthetic ones, the band is made from cotton so it’s simple and easy to adjust. They are also super comfortable to wear for long periods of time, causing no scratching or irritation to my eyes. For the first time ever I couldn’t even tell I was wearing lashes, it was amazing! The lashes are super soft, and have a beautifully natural curl. Even though I love wearing these in the evening and for special events, If I chose the right style they would be suitable even for everyday wear. I had never tried mink lashes before, and now that I have I can’t see myself ever going back to synthetics, I didn’t know lashes could be so luxurious and natural looking too ! Thank you ESQIDO !!!!

After experimenting with lash extensions this past winter, I definitely fell in love with the glamorous eye-popping look they created but wanted the flexibility and convenience of putting them on and taking them off whenever I wanted. Of course the eyelash extensions looked beautiful at first, but after the first few days they start to fall out and they become sparser as time goes on. With strip lashes you look perfect every time! At the end of the day, false lash strips offer more flexibility, convenience, a wider range of styles and will save you time and money.
