Mink lashes are a really luxurious choice of fake lash. When minks used for lash extensions, we have found their staying power isn't always as great as synthetic silks (our favs!) because the shaft of the lash can be somewhat irregular and therefore not adhere to the natural lash as well.
BUT, if you are looking to buy a strip lash for one off occasions, then we think minks are the way to go. They might be a bit more expensive but you can peel off the glue and reuse, (be sure to keep the box they came in so they're kept clean in the mean time).
Minks- and we're talking real mink fur here- will be soft, fluttery and you'll avoid looking like daisy the cow or a drag queen. Which is fine, but it's not for us!
