What's The Fuss About Mink Eyelashes?

Mink eyelashes are probably the most costly and luxurious looking of all false eyelashes on the market today. Although available as eyelash extensions, they are normally found as strip lashes that are applied as when required.

False eyelashes have been around since 1916, when D. W. Griffith had a wig maker weave human hair through gauze and then glued to the eyeline of actress Seena Owen in the film Intolerance. False lashes were pretty much ignored until the 60s, when they came back into fashion. Then they tended to be manufactured from synthetic substances. Mink false eyelashes (the eyelashes are false, not the mink!) are more recent and preferred by celebrities who do not always wish to have permanent implants.

They are made from selected mink fur hairs that are simply brushed from live mink by hand. They are not subjected to chemicals or dyes and thus keep their rich velvety appearance. For example, their lush appearance is why the likes of Heidi Klum, Jennifer Lopez and Oprah Winfrey wear them. Just to be clear, that's not to say that these celebs endorse them as such, but just that they have been seen wearing them. So I'll leave it up to you to decide!

When caring for your mink eyelashes, think of them like a mink coat! Never sleep in them or bring them into contact with water. Remove them carefully and then store properly when you do not need them and they will last for anywhere up to 25 applications.

Your lashes will cost anywhere between $100 to $300 for a reasonable set and come as complete strips, bejewelled or in small clusters. You can also get individual lashes for eyelash extensions if you prefer this option, but of course you will need to have these professionally applied - never try this yourself.

Beware when looking for mink eyelashes if you find cheap ones, as these are likely to be fakes. Look for high quality strip lashes that guaranteed to be 100% natural mink fur and you won't be frustrated with your choice.
