Getting the perfect false lash extensions can get very confusing. Questions often arise on which type of eyelash extensions can be the best suitable. Here’s a little outline on synthetic lashes and mink lashes and how they are different to help you choose your next set of seamless eyelash extensions.
Mink eyelashes are known to be the most natural looking lashes and are ideally light weight too. If you are looking for a more natural and seamless look, mink eyelashes are your ultimate go-to. Since we are cruelty-free, we never use real mink fur. We use faux mink fur which are man-made and are made to imitate the real fur. They are silky, soft and fine in texture.
Faux mink lashes are extremely popular due to their natural look; they look like your own lashes. They are great if your own lashes are weak and thin and can last very long if they are well taken care of. Faux mink lashes are customizable as well as designed to accentuate already beautiful lashes which also becomes the reason they are on the pricier side.
Synthetic lashes are easy to find and apply all by yourself. These are generally the first false eyelashes women tend to try. They are easy to find in your local drugstore and provide a very dramatic look, a bit on the faker side. Synthetic lashes are cheaper and affordable but on the downside, they don’t look as natural as they are glossier than natural eyelashes.
Synthetic lashes come in typically broader lashes as well as have a thicker curl than mink eyelashes. They hold their curl extremely well due to their firmness. They are also heavier than mink lashes which makes them the lesser preferred option.
Synthetic lashes are very budget friendly; they can be bought for $5 while mink lashes can go up to $20 – $25. Synthetic lashes may not last as long as mink lashes would since they aren’t natural and are made of polished acrylic material they are made up of. Most importantly, synthetic lashes are meant for a one-time use whereas mink lashes can be used multiple times and still keep its natural look and shape.
