What's The Difference Between Real Mink, Silk, and Faux Mink Lashes?

When it comes to shopping for false eyelashes, it is important to know what you are getting. There are a variety of styles and choosing the one that is best for you is the key to being pleased with your new false eyelashes. Three main types of false lashes that you can choose from are real mink, silk, and faux mink lashes. 

Real Mink Lashes

Real mink lashes are made from the coat of a mink and are gathered during the shedding process, making them cruelty-free. Since these lashes are made out of real mink hair, they look the most natural of any type of lash extensions. They are also very lightweight and are incredibly soft, so they will not irritate your eyes. In terms of appearance, they can range from a very natural look to a more dramatic look, depending on how many are used. 

Silk Lashes

Silk false lashes are made from polyester, but have a different look about them in terms of the way they are arranged on the extension. They are often shorter in nature than other faux mink lashes and have a glossy finish instead of a matte finish. These false eyelashes are often a bit thicker and heavier, so their shorter nature is necessary to ensure they are not heavy on your eyes. 

Faux Mink Lashes

Faux mink lashes are made out of a type of polyester called PBT (polybutylene terephthalate). These faux lashes are made to look much like your natural eyelashes and are very light weight. The have a matte finish that makes them look like natural lashes. Each faux mink lash hair is very fine and thin in nature. Because of their lightweight, they are great for volume lashes where several different lash hairs are required to make the lashes look full and dramatic.
