Mink, Silk & Faux Mink Lashes- What's the difference?

What are the best lashes today!

While a good mascara is priceless, there’s no denying that a set of false lashes is downright transformational. Nowadays, there are plenty of ways to enhance your lashes without relying on mascara to do the trick.

There are synthetic and natural lashes, as well as a wide range of different sizes and styles. For instance, while you may want to go full-on glam for a night out with the girls, you may prefer a more deceptively “natural” look for your cousin’s wedding.

Once saved for only special events, false lashes are now becoming a part of our daily makeup routine. They can transform your entire look in an instant - giving you bold, beautiful eyes for any occasion.

With so many varieties, styles, and types , you are sure to find your perfect pair of lashes !

Mink Lashes:

Mink lashes have become very popular. They’re mink fur that’s been shaved off a mink’s body (either right before or directly after the animal is killed on a fur farm) that are then glued in strands to a human’s eyelashes for a “fuller and thicker” look. The downside? Real mink lashes are NEVER cruelty free !

Usually used on older clients or those going for an extremely natural look. The allure of extensions made from mink hair is that they have a natural quality to them that you cannot get from synthetic material. Real Mink lashes come from the Mink tail, usually coming from either the Siberian Mink or the Chinese Mink. With Mink lashes, you'll get a light, fluffy, soft natural look.

Faux Mink:

Faux mink lashes are the most popular used today. These man made, poly-fiber lashes come in a variety of lengths, diameters and curls, have good flexibility and remain somewhat natural looking depending on the length. They're designed to imitate real mink fur, but lash lovers love this lash type because the curl is permanent and they're low maintenance. No need to curl or put mascara on these types of lashes. The Faux Mink lashes are a little more bold, slightly glossier than the Silk and Mink. Because of their variety of size and length they're great for customizing different looks for each client.

Simply put, Faux Mink is premium type of synthetic lash that was intended to mimic the quality and fineness of real Mink Lashes. It's a vegan friendly option that is made from plastic fibers, although the technology has improved over the years to make them look more natural than before.

Many mink eyelash wearers choose the mink material because of how wispy and fluffy they are. This is why Mishell Cosmetics created our luxury faux mink lashes, which are completely VEGAN and cruelty free. They have designed with multi - layers of synthetic materials, making them the fluffiest eyelash you'll ever experience! These are super high quality products that are comfortable to wear, and trust us - they do not look like false eyelashes. You'll wow your friends with these lashes and will look absolutely amazing!


These are the mid-weight type of lash extensions, and are finer and more flexible than the synthetic type which makes their retention slightly better. Like synthetic lashes, silk come in a variety of curls and lengths. These types of lashes also hold their curl but the curl tends to be less uniform then synthetic lashes, making them better for clients looking for a more natural look. Silk lashes tend to be thicker than any other type of extensions and also have that rick black color.

First thing's first, while some brands market their silk lashes as 100% silk lashes, they are a synthetic based silk fiber, not from actual natural silk, as real silk comes from the cocoon of the silkworm which means it is quite a soft material and won't be able to hold its shape and curl.

Cheaper versions of synthetic lashes can be uncomfortable to wear if they are made poorly. For cheaper synthetic eyelashes, you usually can only get about 2-3 wears of them before they start getting grimy or start falling apart. There are some lashes that are made with synthetic fibers that can be more comfortable to wear, but will cost a little bit more.

Our Luxury silk lashes are actually made with a soft synthetic silk material. This material mimics the feeling of silk and are extremely comfortable and easy to wear. Plus, they are vegan and cruelty-free! Our synthetic best fake eyelashes last between 20-25 wears with proper care and cleaning. They are also super affordable! How can you beat that?
