Fab Friends: Esqido Eyelash Glue & BFF Lashes

[Products were sent by PR. Opinions are my own. No affiliate links.]

I'll be honest: I'm still pretty rubbish at putting false lashes on. It's getting slightly easier, only because I know what I did last time that absolutely didn't work. But I wear them so rarely, that I don't invest much effort in really figuring the damned things out. Slowly, but surely, maybe?

I did acquire something that does make the previously finicky glue application so much easierESQIDO eyelash glue. It has a thin brush tip (like most glitter eyeliners) that is really easy to use. I swipe the side of the brush against the band to create a thin layer, wait for a few seconds, then voila! Ready to go. It's latex-free, and at $10.00, definitely worth it. Adhesion is good, dry time is quick, and it's so easy to control vs the glop tip of the glue I've used previously. Seriously: game changer.

I tried the glue with the BFF lashes ($35), which Esqido rates 3/5 for volume. ESQIDO false eyelashes always look beautiful, with great curve and a natural texture (I've tried several: here, and here), and these are no exception. 
BFF Lashes.

The volume on BFF is reasonable, but they have great length. Because they're a sparser lash, I do find that I have to be extra careful to prevent shedding (I lost a few hairs while I was trimming and applying them), but they are light and comfortable to wear. I can see why this one is a fan favorite: they provide just enough oomph and length, but still don't draw too much attention. Still, they provide enough definition that I could skip mascara and eyeliner - in the below FOTD photos, I'm just wearing eyeshadow and the BFF lashes on eyes, and I curled my natural lashes into the BFF hairs so that they fit in.

Love the length on these.

I really love the length on these, and that's their best feature. If you're looking for volume or a unique pattern, Esqido has plenty of other options. For flirty, eye-opening length, BFF has you set.
