Frequently Asked Questions

About our Gel Eyeliner Pencil

Is this eyeliner safe for sensitive eyes?

Our eyeliner is formulated to be hypoallergenic. The product has undergone health and safety testing. All ingredients utilized in the formulation have been verified as safe and compliant with the highest cosmetic regulatory standards. However, it’s essential to remember that everyone’s skin can react differently to cosmetics. We advise performing a patch test on a small area of your skin before using it on your eyelids to ensure compatibility. If you’re someone who is more prone to irritations, we advise seeking guidance from a medical professional prior to use.

What is the best way to remove the eyeliner?

Use some makeup remover on a cotton pad and hold it against the eye for a few seconds. Gently wipe downwards and repeat until the liner has been fully removed. If you are not wearing lash extensions, an oil based makeup remover will remove it easier.

How long does the Esqido Gel Eyeliner last?

The Esqido Gel Eyeliner lasts up to 1 year after opening.

How do I apply the eyeliner?

To apply the eyeliner, first clean your eyelids with eye makeup remover or your facial cleansers, to ensure you're applying on a clean surface. Then, take the Esqido Gel Eyeliner and draw a thin line across your lash line, to achieve your desired look.

Can I use it to create a smokey liner effect?

Absolutely! Right after applying the liner, take a small pencil brush or a q-tip and smudge the top of the liner to create a haze effect. You must do this before the liner sets and dries completely.

How do I get the eyeliner to stay on my waterline?

Please make sure to dry the surface of any tears or water before applying the liner. A waterproof product is formulated to repel water, which is why the liner does not stick to a wet surface.

How do I use the built-in sharpener?

The built in sharpener is located at the base of the pencil, just below the twist mechanism. Give it a firm tug to pull it out. Take care when sharpening the product, as too much force can crumble the soft gel. We recommend dispensing just enough product to sharpen, rotating only one side of the component slowly and gently. Clean the sharpener before replacing the cap, to avoid product jamming in the sharpener.

I've made my eyeliner too thick! How do I fix this?

The liner needs a few minutes to set completely, so you can easily correct or sharpen lines with a q-tip.

Can you use this eyeliner with false lashes or lash extensions?

Yes! You may use the liner with falsies or lash extensions. However, be gentle when removing the liner. Our recommendation is to use a q-tip dipped in an oil-free makeup remover and running it along the liner until it comes off.

Will it work for oily eyelids?

We’ve formulated the liner to be smudge and water resistant on most skin types. However, it does require proper application and setting time to achieve optimal performance. (include best application practice). It will smudge easily before it sets. The liner needs to set for a few minutes after applying for it to be water resistant. The liner does best on clean, dry skin. We recommend that you don’t apply anything emollient on the eyes under the liner. If you have oily lids, we recommend cleaning the surface with micellar water or an oil-free makeup remover and letting dry before applying the liner.

Can I use the eyeliner with my contact lenses?

Our eyeliner has been tested with contact lenses and is generally safe for use. However, please be aware that individual experiences may differ. Please note the eyeliner will smudge easily before it sets. The liner needs to set for a few minutes after applying on a dry clean surface for it to be water resistant. We recommend that you don’t apply anything emollient on the eyes under the liner. If you have any concerns about using makeup with your contact lenses, please consult an eye care professional prior to use.


About our Unisyn™ false eyelashes


What makes your false lashes so unique?

Loved my Pro Makeup artists around the world and seen on celebrities such as Rihanna, Gigi Hadid, and other Victoria Secret angels, Esqido lashes are loved by many as some of the top falsies on the market!

They're easy to apply, incredibly natural looking, and can be worn up to 20+ times with proper care!

They are hypoallergenic and made free from any kind of dyes, leaving a natural black-brown finish. Each individual strand is ultra-soft, lightweight and stay beautifully curled. The result - the most naturally alluring and luxurious lashes you will ever experience.

How do I apply false eyelashes?

Handle your Esqido false lashes with extra care. Never tug on the individual strands.

Start by gently pulling on the two ends of the band until it's detached from the clear tray. Then, look downwards at a mirror, and position the lashes on your eyes, just above your natural lash line.

Note the width of your eyes, and trim the false lashes from the outside corner to match. After trimming, apply a thin, even strip of glue along the band of the lashes, then allow the glue to settle for a few seconds.

After the glue starts to get tacky, look downwards at a mirror again, and carefully position the lashes at the base of your natural lash line, pushing it down as close as possible, for the most natural look.

Once you're happy with the placement of the lashes, leave the lashes on and wait for the glue to try. That's it!

How do I remove false eyelashes?

We recommend not using alcohol based cleaners on your false lashes as it may weaken the band.

Using a cotton swab, dab some oil-free makeup remover along the band of the false lashes, and wait a few seconds for the glue to start dissolving.

Then, start to gently push the lashes down, without handling by the individual strands, avoid pulling or ripping the lashes off.

Once the lashes are removed, dab a cotton swab in oil-free makeup remover and gently rub off remnants of glue from the lash band. Do not rub the individual strands of fur.

Once the glue has been removed from the band, place your lashes in a clean, dry place, or place them back into your lash box to avoid dust and dirt.
