First thing’s first, while some brands market their 3D silk lashes as 100% silk lashes. They are a synthetic based silk fibre, not actually real silk. As real silk is quite a soft material and won’t be able to hold its shape and curl. Depending on whether this is important to you, you’ll want to do some research to find out what kind of synthetic fibre the lash brand is actually using.
“Silk” lashes are a newer type of lashes that have come out in recent years. That’s finer and more natural-looking than the traditional faux mink lashes. Although sometimes, it seems the terms are used interchangeably and look wise, they could be quite similar.
Are they reusable?
Yup! 3D Silk lashes can be reused multiple wears with proper care. While we can’t promise a number, the general rule of thumb (with any falsies), is to always dab some makeup remover and run it along with the lash band until the glue dissolves. Then continue to remove any remnants of the glue to keep them going strong.
What’s the difference between 3D silk lashes vs faux mink lashes?
It depends on the lash band. The main difference depends on the brand and its construction process. You’ll notice with some silk lashes that they may have higher and a more noticeable sheen. Other than that, they are fairly comparable in terms of look and feel, it depends on personal preference.
More importantly, if you want to add volume to your lashes while looking natural. We recommend finding the right style, length, and pattern that fits your unique eye type, as there may only be minor differences between Silk vs Faux Mink lashes.
