Total Minks Lashes


Total Minks Lashes review and photos


Total Minks Lashes - Prickly Minks

Ever since I can remember (well about 5 years to be exact) I have worn false lashes. For a good proportion of that time I had eyelash extensions which are individual lashes glued onto each natural lash to create thickness and length. I loved having these done, they meant I could be up and out the door in next to no time - a major plus point for a new mum at the time.
 
Last year I decided to have them taken off to give my lashes a break. This was all well and good but I was left with (what I thought) short stubby lashes! Of course my lashes had always looked this way, but I'd been so used to seeing them full and long that it was a total shock to the system. I immediately went out and bought some false lashes to curb my lash withdrawal and since then have enjoyed playing around with different styles and makes.
 
I recently ventured down the mink lash route to see if they were worthy of the £24.99 price tag. They are made from cruelty free mink fur which gives them a super soft and fluttery appearance. Of course they are many different styles to choose from ranging from natural to more dramatic. I opted for something in between 'The Prickly Minks'.
 
What warrants their  hefty price tag (apart from being mink) this that they can be worn up to 25 times. This I think stems from the rather thick lash brand which gives them more structure and durability.
The band looks like it would make application more difficult but I in fact found them much easier to apply as they're not flimsy and sit on the lash line with ease. The thicker band also means they keep their shape for longer - I've worn mine 6 times now and they still look as good as the day I got them. They feel comfortable on the eyes and feel so light that I almost forget I'm wearing them! I found that even these semi dramatic ones I have look natural on, and the individual tapered hairs give a beautiful fluttery appearance.  
 
If you're an avid lash wearer I can definitely recommend giving Mink lashes a go. The initial pay out is worth it in the long run as I find that with cheaper lashes ( that still coat £5+ each) only last 3-4 uses before they look liked they've been chewed by a dog!
 
What are your favourite lashes to wear? Have used tried Mink ones before?

    1. They are more expensive than regular lashes but i think they're worth it, especially if like me you wear lashes every day, and go through them like i do! ;P
      I understand they're not in everyones budget though. x

  3. I've heard of the wonders of mink eyelashes.
    They look so lovely and natural on you. I get that the price is a bit steep but I think the quality reflects the price.
    I've been looking into 'velour lashes' but I might have to browse at these lashes too!

    Great review, have a lovely day ♥
