The Pros and Cons of Faux Mink, Silk, and 100% Siberian Mink Lashes

August 30, 2018


When considering eyelash extensions, it is important to consider which type you wish to use. There are three types of eyelash extensions offered at Lash It @ Delucia Holistics : synthetic silk eyelash extensions, 100% Siberian mink eyelash extensions, and Faux Mink eyelash extensions. Size ranges are from 6mm to 17mm, but most people will find 10-12mm is the sweet spot.  


Faux Mink Eyelash Extensions 


Faux mink extensions are designed to resemble the qualities and look for real mink as closely as possible but they come in a range of different volumes. Because of that, they offer fluttery, lightweight lashes at a fraction of the price. Since they are synthetic, they don’t lose their curl when they get wet. 


Faux mink are a heavier material, so if you wish for lashes more than a third longer than your own lashes then silk or real siberian mink are a better option - choosing the right eyelash extension salon is a must to preserve your lash health. 


Silk Eyelash Extensions 


Silk extensions are a great middle ground between faux mink and real mink lashes. Silk lashes are thicker at the bottom, darker, and glossier and very soft and light -, which makes them great for adding volume and drama. Silk is the better option if you want lots of volume but find the faux mink not soft enough or too heavy. 


These lashes, - come in at a middling price range and are a really good option . 


100% Siberian Mink Eyelash Extensions 


Real mink extensions are very lightweight, come in all the curl patterns, and offer a very natural look due to their volume. They are a good choice for those with naturally thin or brittle lashes because they are the thinnest option. They are the most luxurious option but are often mixed with silk to create more volume. Used alone you can add maximum length safe in the knowledge nobody will be able to prove you are wearing extensions.  


 However they are not a good choice for people allergic to mink or who are vegan. These lashes are cruelty free the mink have the life of old riley with regular hand grooming to collect the lashes – which are then dyed and permed.
