Faux mink lashes are synthetic lashes, they are made from synthetic fibers just like silk lashes. Often both are the same, in many cases faux mink lashes and silk lashes are made from the same PBT synthetic plastic fiber and the name is interchangeable from silk to faux mink. The biggest confusion is mink lashes and faux mink lashes, they are not the same. "Mink Lashes" are made from real mink fur and "Faux mink" lashes were made to mimic mink lashes with a synthetic fiber which makes them more affordable.
Mink lashes are the most desired false lashes and have become the most popular lashes worldwide. Recently, faux mink lashes have surfaced to give a more affordable version of mink lashes and for people who do not want real mink fur.
So, Faux mink lashes are not real "Mink lashes". Faux mink is just another name for synthetic false lashes.
