General Questions


What are Mink Lashes?

Mink lashes are premium false lashes that are lighter and more flexible then conventional synthetic lashes. They are naturally glossy, curled and tapered to perfection and will give you a soft, natural, glamorous look. They are also much easier to apply than regular eyelash extensions. Unlike semi-permanent, eyelash extensions that must be applied by a trained and certified specialist, Play Mink Lashes can be quickly and easily self-applied. Our Play Mink Lashes are carefully handmade from 100% natural mink fur and can be worn up to 25 times. The mink hair is gently brushed from the live mink and sterilized to ensure that they are hypo-allergenic. Play Mink Lashes are cruelty-free and there is no harm done done to the minks. Also, mink hair is free from any sort of chemical processing and dye which allows for an extremely soft, lightweight, and natural look.


What is the difference between synthetic and mink false eyelashes?

The defining difference between mink lashes and synthetic lashes is their superior quality. Mink fur is naturally shiny, flexible to movement, light as a feather, holds a wonderful curl, and can be worn up to 25 times. The result is long, lush lashes that are not only comfortable to wear but also beautifully stunning. Synthetic eyelashes may be less expensive but are often stiff and uncomfortable, look fake and unnatural when worn, and can only be used a few times. Mink eyelashes are considered a premium product when compared to synthetic false lashes.
