Whats the Difference between Mink lashes and Regular Lashes?

It’s very easy to get confused with all the 3d mink, mink fur, faux mink and then you hear silk lashes and you’re like…huh?  Well we wrote this article to break it down to you and what the different types of false eyelashes and how they differ from each other.

Mink and Silk lashes are the most commonly used. 3d Mink lashes are the recent craze because they look the most natural, they are softer, last longer, more comfortable and have beautiful styles. Silk lashes are also very popular. Both are natural looking, the main difference between lashes comes down to their firmness, are they real fur, faux fur or are they synthetic.

Mink lashes are handmade with real mink fur,  they have a natural quality to them that you cannot get from synthetic lashes .  Real Mink lashes come from Minks usually  from either the Siberian Mink or the Chinese Mink. The hair is attained when the minks shed.  Mink hair also has the best layering effects for the 3D look, which makes them very pretty.

Mink tends to be more superior are more comfortable than all other lashes. The downside of mink is they are usually more expensive then synthetic or silk lashes.  Mink lashes have been the favorite among celebrities and Makeup artists because of the qualities and “look”.

Silk lashes are very popular. They are similar to mink with the many styles and 3D effects. They are not made from silk, they are made from a PBT fiber. They are better quality than regular synthetic lashes but not as good as quality as mink lashes….. but very close. The main difference is the silk lashes lay slightly differently and not as “fuzzy” as mink, they are also more shinier than mink which some people may prefer. Silk lashes tend to be a little more thinner as well.  They last long up to 20 wears with good care. Silk lashes are more affordable but still more expensive than regular synthetic lashes.


There’s been a lot of confusion with the newest “Faux mink eyelashes“. Simply put, they are not real mink lashes. They are synthetic lashes created to mimic real mink lashes. The Faux Mink lashes are a little more bold and slightly glossier than the Silk and Mink lashes. Faux mink, like all other synthetic lashes tend not to be as comfortable as mink or silk mainly because the band is more stiff.  Faux Mink lashes are usually for the people who like how real mink lashes look but they don’t want real fur mink.
