Beauty Review: The Truth About Esqido Mink False Eyelashes

Beauty Review: The Truth About Esqido Mink False Eyelashes

Esqido Mink Eyelashes

Let’s talk about lashes.

The history of fake eyelashes can be quite creepy. Did you know that in the 1890s some women had to use needles to put their lashes in place? So yes, if you’re into mink false eyelashes and you don’t completely agree that beauty is pain, you’re quite lucky you weren’t born in those times. It’s ironic how women had to deal with such kind of torture in the past while in today’s generation, it’s one of the biggest trends in the beauty community. 

Being physically beautiful is a process. Having your hair bleached could mean completely damaging it or putting on cosmetic products might cause skin irritation or allergies. Going to your eyelash salon and getting an eyelash perm regularly could be mean being happy with your lashes or losing them completely. As for me, I’m still having doubts about eyelash perming and eyelash extensions so I’ll choose false lashes for now.  

Here’s my review of Esqido Mink False Eyelashes, my before and after photo and the truth about beauty lashes:

 

They’re Real Fluffy

 

Esqido makes mink lashes so it’s not surprising that they’re extremely soft and fluffy. I chose Esqido Nimbus falsies, they’re almost full volume yet they don’t feel too heavy. Normally, I would choose the normal and natural looking lashes because I’ve tried some lashes in the past and I wasn’t really happy using them. They were too heavy and would constantly strip off. When I saw the Nimbus lashes, among other different options, I decided I should give it a go. I’ve been wearing them ever since.

My Nimbus lashes are great to wear for special events. As you can see, even from afar they’re really noticeable and beautifully dramatic, completing my whole look. 

 

They’re Easy To Wear (Good for Beginners Too)

 

When I learned how to do makeup, I was discouraged to use falsies. Perhaps putting lashes on was the biggest challenge for me, next to having perfectly identical winged eyeliner. I learned through practice. My Esqido Nimbus lashes are easy to wear since they’re soft and flexible. With my lashes and a nude liquid lipstick or even just a little bit of Korean lip tint, I’m good to go.  

It’s also easy to remove them so your natural lashes are safe. They’re not too sticky at all.  

 

They Are Paired With Brush-On Lash Glue

 

A brush-on glue is what every girl needs. I’ve tried glue in tubes and using them was such a pain in the neck. It became troublesome when I already used half of the tube. I’m finally saying goodbye to glue spills. Thanks to the smart people who thought of brush-on applicators for making our lives easier.

I don’t know with other girls but I always run out of lash glue. It’s partly not my fault because most false lashes I bought before had small glue tubes. It’s actually one of my frustrations. It can be frustrating especially when you’re ready to put on your lashes and you suddenly realized that you run out of lash glue. 

FYI: The lash adhesive is sold separately.

They Come in Different Styles

 

I chose a pair of Nimbus lashes and I got the exact style that I really wanted. Thanks to Esqido’s lash guide, it’s easy to choose your style based on your eye shape and lifestyle. The lash guide is helpful for first-time false eyelashes users. When I tried the lash guide and was asked about my lifestyle, I also made a quick evaluation of my fashion style and the events I attend to in order to help me choose a pair. I was honestly overwhelmed by different lash styles and would love to get more pairs.

They’re Truly Reusable

 

Of course, most falsies can be reused but sometimes you just don’t feel like reusing them for hygienic purposes. I used my Esqido Nimbus lashes a couple of times and they still look alright. If you’re scared that you might find mites living in your lash extensions (a woman found mites in lash extensions), maybe a good pair of falsies that you can easily remove and sanitize is what you need, unless if you know basic eyelash extension care.

 

The Packaging Will Blow Your Mind

 

I appreciate good packaging. The whole packaging is an important factor to make me buy a certain product. Esqido’s packaging will truly blow your mind. It looks simple yet classic, something that you can put inside your makeup bag and you know it doesn’t mess up.

They Ship Fast

I’m living in the Philippines and usually, when you order products from foreign countries, you have to wait for months to get your package. Luckily, I only waited for ten days I guess, not that bad. Also, the shipping fee is free for orders over $75. 

Esqido Lash Glue

 

The lash glue packaging is quite sophisticated. It’s also easy to use and remove. The fact that it’s a brush-on glue is good news because it means faster and easier application. Also, no spills. It’s easy to remove and dries fast. From my experience, I put on my Esqido Nimbus lashes for almost 12 hours and they were still in place so yes, the lash adhesive is a good one.

What I Don’t Like About Esqido Lashes

They’re not playing when it’s mentioned on the description box that some lashes are medium to full volume. They can be heavy, but no too much. Like I said, I’ve tried other lashes that are too heavy you would feel really uncomfortable. Esqido lashes are tolerable. 

 

 

Months before I got my package, I’ve checked some studio lashes near me thinking it would save time putting on lashes when needed, but somehow I managed to get through the day with my falsies, giving me more options and styles to choose from. Maybe there are other good false eyelashes brands out there, but for now, I’ll stick to Esqido lashes.

So yes, women, also men, do some weird and painful things for beauty and it’s perfectly fine.

Lifestyle Changes For Good Skin

Lifestyle Changes For Good Skin

Good skin doesn’t simply come from good topical applications. It comes from a lifestyle that makes the right choices and health decisions.

Lots of things affect our skin, the sun, the food we eat, our hormones, our mental state and the list goes on. We’ll look at the major lifestyle changes you need to make for healthy skin.

  1. Cut out cigarettes

Smoking causes wrinkles. It can speed up the aging process in the skin.  Nicotine is a potent vasoconstrictor, it contracts blood vessels leading to a decrease in blood supply and nutrients to the skin. These changes are likely to be seen after a decade of smoking.

  1. Sleep well

For every hour of sleep lost, the psychological stress in a person increases by 14%. And with a lack of sleep, the body starts to release a stress hormone, called glucocorticoid. This alters the skin cells and can exacerbate acne or precipitate it. For those who has skin problem, lack of sleep can worsen their condition but you can visit Facing Acne to check for remedies on your problem. Aim for at least seven hours of sleep and if you have difficulty sleeping, lower the temperature to 65F. Lower temperatures are proven to enable sleep.

  1. Eat a balanced diet.

Refined sugars and fats tend to increase the blood sugar levels rapidly which in turn boost the production of insulin. Insulin increases the sebum and oil production in our pores. So try and get more whole grains and cereals that gradually increase the sugar level in the blood. Eat fruits and vegetables, rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and enzymes that boost collagen production, make the skin more elastic and neutralize free radicals in the skin.

  1. Exercise regularly

A regular workout has many benefits, but the best of them all is that it increases blood flow to all parts of the body, including your skin. With increased blood flow to the skin, it carries away many harmful toxins and brings nutrients to the skin. Thus, flushing out debris and cleansing the system. Exercise has also proven to reduce stress levels which in turn will reduce the glucocorticoid production in the body.

  1. Stay out of the Sun

The sun is responsible for the production of Vitamin D in the skin but it’s important to remember that ultraviolet light can be harmful. Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet light damages the skin and causes it to age by a process called photoaging. Ultraviolet A light can also genetically modify cells making them cancerous. So stay out of the sun and if outside wear your sunscreen with SPF +30. Reapply every two hours if you’re outside continuously.

  1. Hydrate

There’s a lot of debate as to how much water is required per day. But it’s not just your skin but your body that needs to be hydrated. 70% of our body is made of water and water is required for many functions including flushing out toxins and filtering blood. It has been shown that as much as two cups of water boost blood flow throughout the body.

  1. Keep your hair out of your face.

While bangs and flicks might be cute, sometimes hair products can cause you to break out. The chemicals in pomade, gels, shampoos and hair sprays may be hair friendly but not skin friendly. These chemicals tend to block the pores causing a skin reaction and breakouts. You may want to rethink your hair products if your hair is always in your face, otherwise, try and keep your hair away from your face.

  1. Hygiene

Good hygiene is paramount for good skin. This involves changing your pillow weekly, cleaning your cell phone,

exfoliating and cleansing your own skin and removing makeup before bed. All these are extremely important in preventing infections, keeping your pores clean and open and staving off acne. Pillows, cell phones, and makeup can harbor dead skin cells and bacteria for a long time. These then become breeding grounds for infections.

A few lifestyle changes can go a long way when it comes to healthy glowing skin. In addition, to these, you can reduce alcohol, take supplements and use fewer chemicals to maintain youthful skin.

These simple changes can affect the way your skin looks and feels without needing too many products. Try them out for glowing skin and see if it makes a difference.
