False Lash Materials

False lashes can be made out of three different materials: synthetic fibers, mink fur, human hair. 

Synthetic Lashes: Are made out of man-made synthetic-based fibers. Synthetic lashes can be made out of plastic, silk fibers, or a blend of faux-mink and other materials. They are shinier than natural lashes, but they can give you a natural look. Silk lashes are quite common synthetic lashes, and they can be worn 3-8 times, while cheaper synthetic lashes are usually only good for one use as they can cause damage to the eyelid. Silk lashes are more affordable, ranging in price from $10 – $25 US.

Mink lashes: Are made out of mink fur or horse tail hairs. If you are concerned about cruelty-free products, you might want to go the route of the horse tail hairs. When lashes are made of mink fur, the fur is collected by catching minks and collecting the fur while they are in captivity. Mink lashes are not as expensive as human hair lashes, they can range in price from $24 – $42 US. These lashes are more comfortable than synthetic lashes and last longer (between 20 – 30 uses) but not as long as human lashes. 

Human Hair Lashes: Are made of exactly what they say, human hair. They last longer, they are more comfortable, and they blend seamlessly with your natural lashes. Human hair lashes are definitely better quality, but they are pricey. These lashes can be worn the longest and range in price from $60 – $160 US.
