Alright, I said I would do it. My review of the ESQIDO Companion Lash Glue.

The specifications of the lash glue are as follows:

  • RELIABLE – Strong, all day hold lash glue.
  • GENTLE FORMULA – Latex-free & Formaldehyde-free, suitable even for sensitive eyes.
  • DRIES CLEAR & QUICK DRYING – Gets tacky in seconds, and dries invisible! No waiting around!
  • EASY TO APPLY – Wand applicator with precision brush tip – Apply the perfect amount every time.
  • FOR ALL LASHES – The best professional grade adhesive for mink or any strip false / fake eyelashes.

Now, my personal opinion is one that can be taken for what it’s worth. I do not claim to be a professional makeup guru but I do know what I like, especially after using other products to compare. The ESQIDO Companion Lash Glue is my favorite lash glue I have tried. I scoured through other reviews of this lash glue hearing nothing but amazing things about it. I ordered and was excited to try it for myself only to be blown away by the results of my usage. The first day, application was a breeze as I applied it in the technique described here. I stuck on my mink lashes from Dollar Lash Club and went about my day. I worked out and sweat like a pig. Yes, I will admit it, but hey, it just means I worked HARD right?! Next, I showered. Now normally I would remove my lashes prior to showering but for the sake of this test, I left them on. I cleaned my face in the shower with my scrubber, got out, dried my face with a towel and applied my moisturizer as normal. My lashes were as adhered to my eyelids as if I had not just put them through the wash cycle of a carwash. I was amazed but wanted to push the envelope a tad further and swim in them. I took a dip in my pool. Head underwater, dips and flips, I nearly forgot I was just in the pool to test this glue. After about an hour and a half of water time, my lashes were STILL on my face. The edge had slightly peeled away on the outer corner of one eye but still, with other lash glue, my lashes would not have made it past a sweat. That evening I decided to leave just my lashes on and went to bed. I am not always a gentle sleeper. I toss and turn, go from one pillow to the next, just all over. I woke up the next day and my lashes were still good as new and stuck like I cement them on. Yay! I just applied my makeup for the day and went on my way for the rest of day, my makeup by the end of it, slightly worn but my lashes, still looked perfect. I did use makeup remover and they gently peeled off and was easily cleaned and stored away for the next use but wow, my expectations were far from exceeded. I will definitely recommend this product 10000%.

Lashes for DAYS!

My daily look isn’t complete without an amazing pair of lashes, which I HIGHLY recommend Luxury Mink Lashes from Dollar Lash Club. The Dollar Lash Club has been a beauty lover’s go-to for affordable mink lashes. They have a convenient subscription service that provides a fresh delivery of lashes every month, meaning that is one less item I have to worry about restocking when I am out. If you are not sure you want to go the subscription route just yet, they also have a “Try before you buy” option available as well but I promise you, you will LOVE them as much as I do…I literally am OBSESSED and wear them daily! What’s even better is, using code LVSHANNAN at checkout saves 10% at checkout!

Lashes can be intimidating to put on. I practiced and practiced and I know I am not an “expert” by any means but I have some great tips and tricks to help!

When you get a pair of lashes, sometimes they may be a bit long for your eye shape. A lot of lashes have a short side and a long side. The short side goes towards the inner corner of your eye and the longer side, towards the outer corner. Take the lash and trim with a pair of scissors from the outside corner of the lash band to fit to the size of your eye.

Next, is the application of the lash glue. Lash glue is important as it determines the durability of the hold on your lash line. I have tried so many different types of lash glues but my ultimate favorite is ESQIDO Companion Long- Lasting Lash Glue . It dries clear, latex free and it has held through showering, swimming, working out, you name it…my lashes do not move! I actually plan on doing a separate review for it because it is my favorite! Now for my application tip that was an absolute game-changer when applying my lashes. Instead of taking the lash glue and applying directly to the lash band, apply the glue as you would an eyeliner to your actual eyelid above your lash line. By the time I grab my tweezers to apply my lashes, the glue is ready and tacky (it only takes seconds) and I set them on my glue line, use my tweezers to adjust and clamp them firmly in place, and voila, lashes for days!

Final tip to lash application is to take a small tube object, I personally use one of my thin lip liner pencils, and I take the pencil on its side and roll from my brow down my lid to my lash band. This helps make it look more natural in my opinion.

Adding another coat of mascara after application is complete preference. I personally do not, as I find that it helps make my lashes last longer. I can normally get 20 to 30 wears out of a pair if I take care of them. Then I take my eyeliner and line the top of the lash band to blend.

To remove the lashes, take a Q-tip, and run a gentle makeup remover, such as Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water across the band to dissolve the glue and gently peel off. Just clean up the lashes a little bit more and then place them back in their box for the next wear.
