I found this article today about one girl's experience getting a full set of real mink extensions (for$500!!!).
I appreciate her honesty, but her information is not all accurate.
If you click on the link and read it just know what real mink lashes are the least curly of all the types of extensions because they naturally only come in B curl or C curl and they tend to relax over time. That means if you get fills, your older extensions may very well look different than your new ones.
If you spend some time on our site you will soon learn that you can apply multiple synthetic lashes to an individual lash using a technique called Russian or 3D volume lashes. I have never heard of using Mink in this way, and I wouldn't recommend it.
My favorite part of the article is this:
To be honest, the mink extensions took some getting used to. The first few times I looked in the mirror, I thought I looked a little ridiculous, like one of those creepy, old-fashioned porcelain dolls. But they grew on me within hours, and I have never gotten so many compliments from strangers in my life. In the spirit of full disclosure, I should also add that my already-complimentary boyfriend has not been able to stop gushing about them, and the last seven days have been filled with random outbursts like, “your eyes look insanely sexy,” and, “those lashes are so damn pretty!”
I am sure to warn all of my first-time clients who have never had extensions before that feeling this way about your lashes is 100% normal. I appreciate this kind of honesty in a review.
