Fashioned with fur brushed off animals, the fad for real mink eyelashes has taking UK salon markets off their feet. Brought up in early 1920s and popularized by famous Hollywood celebrities like Jennifer Lopez, Heidi Klum, Jersey Shore fame Snooki and Kim Kardashian, these mink eyelashes are all set to dapple their reign among Brits. After its huge success in the US, the company has come up with amazing options in lashes to entertain more customers. While prior sets of mink lashes were priced up to 5000 euros, but after seeing the elevated craze among frugal fashionistas, it now costs just 125 Euros.
"Among mainstream customers, these lashes are extremely popular, as they bestow them with more glamorous yet natural look without taking off superfluous time off their look. One can apply them within two hours", daily mail quoted Janette Vince, of Designer Lashes London, as saying.
Though Vince reassured that the mink lashes don't require killing of the animals for their making, collecting fur rigorously by hand could also leave these furry animals in a cold spot. Don't you think? Earlier this year, after courting some serious controversies from PETA, Jersey Shore, Snooki had to take off five pairs of authentic milk eyelashes from her website.
Seeking the same concept as Designer lashes, Away Spa at the W Hotel in London's Leicester square is also in a mood of inducing more beauty-driven market by offering its customers mink eyelash treatment. However, rather than preferring the natural version, they make use of synthetic fur as it allows better curling of the lashes. "They produce better curls. Plus, we aren't supporting any cruelty on animals!" its London-based eyelash extension artist Ruthie Belle told the website.
Whilst a palette contains 12 series of lashes and comes with a reasonable price tag of 9.95 Euros, a boxed set is available for 44.95 Euros only. You can pick up your own box of mink lashes from Eye lashes Direct's official website. So, don't wait and let your eyes speak a thousand words more with this ultra-fashionable lashes!
