Mink, Silk And Faux Mink Eyelashes, What’s The Difference?
What Are Mink Lashes?
With all of the different types of lashes available, it can become confusing when trying to narrow down on the differences and which one is right for whom.
Just what are mink lashes anyway? What is the difference between synthetic mink lashes and real fur mink lashes?
Mink lash extensions are the most widespread lash types in the lash industry today, and we are here to help you understand what they really are.
The term ‘mink lash’ refers to eyelash extensions made with a synthetic material called PBT.
This material is a plastic substance that has excellent shape memory, does not deform for a long time after processing, and has excellent heat and chemical resistance.
PBT is used not only in eyelash extensions but in some common household items such as toothbrushes!
SJ Mink Lashes are all made of top-quality Korean PBT. By using the best quality Korean-made PBT fiber, we make sure our lashes are soft, lush, and flexible.
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. Because of their lightweight, silk lashes are good to use on older clients or clients with weak and flimsy natural lashes. Like synthetic lashes, silk comes in a variety of curls and lengths. These types of extensions also hold their curl but the curl tends to be less uniform than 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. Silk eyelash extensions tend to be the least comfortable type of extension and are best used for special occasions.
