I have a love hate relationship with false lashes. I love how luscious lashes can make my eyes look big and beautiful, but I hate how messy it can be to put them on. Especially if I’m applying my own lashes. It’s easy for me to stick them on someone else, but when it comes to doing it myself the struggle is real!
One thing I have discovered is that the glue makes all of the difference on making the process of apply false lashes go smoothly. For years I have been a fan of the DOU lash glue, but I recently discovered a glue that I like even more.
As you probably know, if I’m going to go wear lashes, it has to be ESQIDO. Their mink lashes are my favorite and if cared for properly, they last forever. Not to mention, they look super luxurious and I rack in the compliments when I wear my BFF lashes.
ESQIDO recently reached out to me to let me know about their Companion Eyelash Glue and I was very interested in the product because it’s latex-free. Most lash glues use latex as an adhesive, and it’s very effective at keep lashes in place all day long. But, the ESQIDO Companion Eyelash Glue promises to do the same, without the damaging effects of latex. Their formula is gentle and specifically designed to be used with mink lashes.
Esqido Companion Eyelash Glue Review
I put the ESQIDO Companion lash glue to the test recently and I’m pretty impressed with the product all around.
For starters, the packaging is very elegant. I love the rose gold print on the bottle and how it matches the box that their lashes come inside.
Now, like I mentioned to you before, the glue I have always used comes in a tube, which means I always have to squeeze it onto a mixing palette and then use a cotton swab to apply the glue onto my false lashes.
The cool thing about the ESQIDO Companion Eyelash glue is that I don’t have to go through all that trouble. The eyelash glue comes in a tube with a wand application, similar to lip gloss. All you have to do is brush a layer or two of glue onto the lash band with the precision bristle tip, then give it a few minutes to become tacky before applying the lashes to the base of your lash line. Something I noticed about the glue is that it has a thinner consistency than the glue that I’m used to, so I brushed on few layers. I also made sure to put an extra dab on the outside edges of each lash band to ensure that they stayed in place.
Once I had my lashes in place, I couldn’t see the invisible lash glue. It completely disappeared without leaving any white residue.
Now, for the most important question: does the glue really keep the lashes in place?
The answer is YES!
My lashes didn’t budge the whole night that I wore them to a wedding. They stayed in place, even when I started to sweat from dancing. At the end of the night I was able to remove them with out any trouble and cleaning them was a breeze too.
