Real vs. Fake Mink Lashes - How to tell the difference?

Mink Lashes are all the rave. 3D mink lashes have become a favorite for instagram baddies, soccer moms and corporate boss babes alike.  With the popularity of these lashes, we have to be very careful of fraud and ensuring that we are truly buying luxury mink lashes and not a cheap counterfeit.


One way to know if your mink lashes are real is the price.  Real mink lashes cannot be purchased for $2.00 or even $5.00.  Any lash that is advertising as real mink for a bottom dollar price is likely not real mink lashes but instead a cheap imposter.  A second way to tell the difference is the burn test.  In a safe space, preferably outside with nothing flammable around.  You can light a match to real mink and it will smell like hair burning, but if you light a match to fake mink it will smell like plastic burning and melt in to itself.  This is evidence that it is NOT real mink. 

Because we shutter to think of you placing a match to a beautiful pair of luxury hand made mink lashes we recommend you purchase your real mink lashes from 24K Sugar Beauty.  We take special care in sourcing quality luxury mink lashes while offering them at a more affordable price than bigger retailers.

We hope this article is helpful to you no matter where you choose to purchase your luxury mink lashes.   Have you unknowingly purchases faux mink lashes?
