Mink, silk and synthetic lash extensions – what’s the difference?

Synthetic eyelash extensions

These are made from a polished, acrylic material and are the firmest/sturdiest of all. While they come in a wide variety of thicknesses and curls, and can be applied to look very natural, these are most popular with ladies wanting a more dramatic and made-up look. due to the firmness.They are most suitable for those with healthy, dense lashes of their own, and are generally favored by younger clients. If your own lashes are very fine or weak, then we’d recommend silk or mink lashes, as they are slightly lighter.

Silk eyelash extensions:

These are the mid-weight type of lash extensions, and are finer and more flexible than the synthetic type. Because they are softer and more porous, they tend to hold on slightly longer than the synthetic ones. They can be made to look very natural or very glamorous, they are quite dense/thicker than the synthetic lashes. Because they are heavier in weight, they are often a better option for your lashes if your own ones are strong, or thick. Like synthetic lashes, silk come in a variety of curls and lengths, though are a better option for a more natural look, as the curl is not generally as uniform or as pronounced as synthetic. Glamour sets of silk lashes are one of the most popular options for brides, who are looking for lashes that are full and long yet still natural looking.

Mink eyelash extensions:

Creme de le creme of the extension world. Mink lashes are handmade with 100% pure natural mink fur and are the biggest trend with Hollywood Stars. Mink Eyelashes are made of individually selected mink fur hairs that have been harvested by gently brushing live farm animals. Mink eyelashes are not cruel to animals in any way! They are sterilized and Hypo-Allergenic. These lashes are the only lashes used in Hollywood because they last longer than Synthetic, and human hair lashes and look more natural. It takes a longer time to apply a set of mink lashes because, as the fibers are very fine, we tend to apply more.
