Mink vs. Synthetic: The False Lash DeathMatch! Week 2!

Okay, so I have a lot to say this week. Lets just say that I (and my lashes) have been through the wringer!

For those of you who missed it, I am wearing a set of Esqido lashes (the Unforgettable lash) for 30 days or until they are no longer wearable. Then I will be comparing them to a similar synthetic set. A link to week one is at the bottom of this post.

My friend Kelly’s birthday was this weekend, and to celebrate we went to a drag show. I figured, drag queens know whats up; let me hunt down some of them and ask their opinions.

Well, I hunted them down… after a lot of really strong drinks.

I had a lot of very well dressed queens literally petting my eyelashes. Lets just say they were impressed. They stayed impressed even after I spilled some of their glitter all over the floor. I know, it was blasphemy. It wasn’t my best moment.

I was super responsible and took the cute little box the lashes come in, makeup remover, and tweezers just in case I wanted to take them off before I got home. Instead at the end of the night I unceremoniously ripped them off of my face.

The aftermath: Other than being put away backwards, they still look great. Phew. If I said I didn’t apologize to them when I found them in my purse the next morning I would be lying.

Jägermeister. Never again.

Removal is much easier now! I let the makeup remover sit on my lashes for about 3 minutes. Lashes slide right off.

Day 12

I did go in and clean the lashes after I removed them on this day. So little lash glue is needed, it actually takes a few days of build up before you can clean  off the glue with some makeup remover and tweezers.

SO FRESH.

Still looking pretty amazing after 14 applications, 13 removals, and 1 very violent, regrettable removal. I am seriously impressed.

Nearly 100 hours of wear

That brings our cost per use to $2.28 USD so far. Skip your Starbucks, Ladies and Gents. They’re worth it.

Steady wearing T-shirts because I spend all my money on makeup instead of clothes. Check out them lashes tho.

Example #18798473 why I’m terrible at selfies. I just cant help but make stupid faces.

What do you guys think so far? How much longer do you think these babies will hold up? Any other tests you think I should run? Let me know in the comments!

Here is week one if you missed it!
