Mink vs. Synthetic: The Eyelash Deathmatch Week 4: FINAL REVIEW Esqido Lashes

Well, thirty days is up, and I have a lot to share! For those of you who don’t know, I have been testing Esqido Unforgettable Lashes for 30 days straight!


Some things to note

  • I have very sensitive eyes! I cannot even bear to wear contacts. Even typing the word contacts has made my eyes water. These lashes have a cotton band, which they claim is much less irritating. Better for people who have allergies and sensitive eyes/ skin. I also used Esqido’s Latex Free Lash Companion Glue
  • I wore the lashes for a minimum of six hours per day, with the exception of one day, which I wore them for three hours before I ugly cried them off.
  • If you are planning on purchasing a pair of lashes and would like to support my blog, there is an affiliate link at the bottom of this post. No other links are affiliate links, and this post is not sponsored.

Cost 10/10: I put this first because I feel like this is the first factor people consider when they look at mink lashes. This pair cost 32 USD, so that breaks down to about 1.07 (before taxes/shipping), and less, because I’m positive my pair would make it another thirty uses.

Wearability 9/10: The only thing that made these uncomfortable for me was the inner corner part of the band that seemed harder than the rest. I assume it was there to help the lashes blend in more, but my eyes are really sensitive, so I trimmed mine off.  After that, I had no issues with irritation or pokiness. I only had a problem with the lashes pulling up twice and both instances were reasonable. I had removed makeup beforehand without washing the remover off, so I feel the glue had trouble adhering. The second time I ugly cried for about an hour. The lashes are light, and undetectable. The only time I was ever aware of them on my eyes is right after I applied them, and when people asked me about them. Funny how you don’t notice something until someone calls your attention to it.The difference between a cotton band and a plastic one is barely noticeable at first, but after 4 or 5 hours it is very apparent how much more comfortable these are.

Sustainability 10/10: I don’t even really have a lot to say here because I think the photos speak for themselves. If you want to keep the lashes for the amount of time they say you can- just follow the care instructions and you’ll be golden. Mine still look amazing, the band is still strong and the lashes aren’t bent or angled crazily. While I’m looking forward to being lazy and not wearing makeup every day, I will definitely keep wearing this pair when I wear makeup

Aesthetics: 10/10: They’re beautiful dude. My most received compliment was that they look so natural and pretty. They don’t drown out simple neutral eye makeup, but they also hold their own in a smoky eye. Their website has sets that have less volume than this pair, and more volume, so I can see it being easy to find a pair that works for each eye shape. I believe there is a quiz on their site that can help recommend a pair for you.

All in all, I’m kind of shocked that these lashes have held up. When a cosmetics brand makes a claim, I’m super skeptical about it. Everything this brand advertises is true. I am also very surprised that these lashes are not more popular. I would, and will, be purchasing these lashes myself in the future because I know for a fact that they hold up and because I prefer a more natural looking eyelash.

I will be pitting these lashes against another pair of lashes that are not mink to see which really is more cost-effective. I would prefer a pair similar in style, preferably a popular set from an easily accessible place like the drugstore, so if you have any suggestions, please let me know!
