Back in the early 2000s, false mink eyelashes began taking over red carpet events for their absolute luxe appearance that makeup artists love. Celebrities like Jennifer Lopez (or now bennifer again) have donned the fluffy falsies on the regular, and now in 2021, we are all following suit. From eyelash extensions to magnetic lashes, there is a mink falsie for anyone who wants to glam up their day-to-night look. Ready to find your best fit?
Before we get started on showing you which falsies might work best for you, we're going to answer some of your most asked questions about mink eyelashes.
Faux Mink vs. Real Mink
In short, faux mink is made from synthetic fibers, while real mink eyelashes are made from fallen or brushed mink hair. There are now faux mink eyelashes with advanced technology that look identical and perform better than natural mink eyelashes like Bionic Silk from MoxieLash.
How can you tell if your eyelashes are mink or faux mink?
When you're shopping for falsies, you will see what the material is in the description. If you choose lashes made from mink, the hairs are very delicate and can lose curl, plus damage easily if they get wet. With synthetic mink, the curl will last no matter what and is not easily damaged.
Real Mink Lashes:
- Made from mink hairs
- Glamorous looking
- Full and fluffy
- Mimics the look of human eyelashes
Faux Mink Lashes:
- Made from synthetic lash fibers
- Not all faux mink is created equal
- Mimics the look and feel of mink eyelashes
- Holds curl
3d Faux Mink Eyelashes
One of the biggest draws for mink eyelash wearers is their fluffy, 3d, featherlight volume. The way that the fibers are layered in a crisscrossing pattern gives eyes that soft and fluttery, multidimensional effect. It's the most natural look you'll find—which is why its popularity isn't going anywhere.
Are Mink Eyelashes Expensive?
Genuine and faux mink can cost the exact same depending on their quality. Not every brand is created equal. You'll find drugstores have fake lashes that have a very plastic look. They are usually pretty stiff, and their quality is low. You get what you pay for when it comes to purchasing falsies.
Reusable Magnetic Lashes have a range of high-quality mink and synthetic options that truly rival each other, and the cost is comparable. Plus, since you can wear them again and again (up to 60 wears), it's pretty cost-effective when you break it down.
How Long do Mink Eyelashes Last
It depends on the brand and how well you take care of them. At MoxieLash, our Bionic Silk Eyelashes that mimic the look and feel of mink are our most durable. They are fully weatherproof, wind-proof, and essentially life-proof. You just have to take care of them by removing any magnetic eyeliner from the ten micro-magnets with the All-In-1 Makeup Remover. Then brush out the lash fibers with the Magnetic Applicator. Last, place them back into the box they came in. You can get up to 60 wears from these babies! We're not kidding.
