When it comes to the choosing the best false eyelashes, it really comes down to the choice between two of the most popular types of strip eyelashes, half (accent) lashes or individual flares – silk lashes and mink. Each has its own loyal fan base, but can you spot the difference between silk lashes and their genuine counterparts in order to justify the difference in price tag?
Silk lashes are abundantly popular. Up until the arrival of affordable mink lashes, they were worn even by celebrities strutting their stuff on the red carpet, and soccer moms toting toddlers to the field every day. They are affordable and can look quite natural when properly applied although they are slightly shinier than faux mink or human hair eyelashes, due to their satin glossy finish. They’re incredibly rich in black color, affording the wearer not only thicker eyelashes, but also a lack of need for mascara entirely thanks to their dark hue. Perfectly tailored for any eye shape thanks to their precision manufacture, they can nicely accent everything from wild makeup styles for blue eyes to natural beige shadow topping brown eyes. Silk lashes also boast an impressive light weight (compared to other faux materials), making them comfortable to wear all day, every day. They’re also known for both their softness and feathery texture.
Genuine mink lashes are, however, the utmost in luxury. They are harvested from live animals through a gentle brushing process and are always more expensive than synthetic offerings. This of course is due to their source. Unique in appearance, they are without a doubt the most natural looking false eyelashes available on the market today. This is because they boast unique natural variances that are virtually impossible to achieve with synthetics, and tapered tips that perfectly imitate the shape of a human eyelash. This difference is one of the most noticeable features of authentic mink eyelashes by Minki Lashes.
