With all of the different types of false lashes on the market, it can become a bit overwhelming when trying to narrow down on the differences and which one is right for you. What are mink lashes anyways? And how do they compare to synthetic lashes? Luckily for you, we’re going to break it down and explain the main differences between the two most common types of strip false lashes: Synthetic and Mink.

What are synthetic lashes?

Synthetic lashes are the most common type of false eyelashes, which are made from plastic man-made fibers. The lashes tend to be a lot thicker in comparison to the natural human lash. Are only good to use a few times.

 

What are mink lashes?

Mink lashes are made from real mink fur, which allows for a light, soft, fluffy and ultimately, more natural look, matching to a similar quality of natural human lashes. Due to the high quality of materials and light weight of the lashes, mink lashes are able to be reused over and over!
