Getting Updated With Few Eyelash Extensions Lingo (Part-2)
We threw light on some of the most common terms used by the eyelash extensions experts when giving you options to decide on the exact style and type that you want. Here we continue the same topic and broaden your eyelash extensions vocabulary further. Read on:
Cashmere eyelash extensions/ Flat eyelash extensions/Ellipse eyelash extensions
In reality, Cashmere is an eyelash extensions brand but people use it when referring to flat or ellipse extensions. They boast of an oval base which offers you a bigger surface area and thus enable a better seal of the extensions to the natural lashes. Because of a stronger seal, these lashes last longer. Due to their shape, the flat and ellipse lashes ooze a thicker vibe while remaining light on weight. On the flip side; they appear extra shiny since the larger surface area reflects more light. Few companies offer its matt version to help avoid the glare.
Mink eyelash extensions
While PETA may carry an agenda with it, real mink eyelash extensions still remain popular. These are most expensive and quite hard to find. A real Siberian mink extension can cost up to $300 or more. They cannot be curled and can be quite allergic as well. This has paved the way for the popularity of synthetic extensions.
Faux Mink eyelash extensions
A prevalent misconception is there among masses that eyelash extensions are made of different types of material. But it is not so. Except for real mink, all are made from a synthetic PBT (Polybutylene Terephthalate) which is nothing but a durable plastic. The various types of lashes are defined mostly by their style and specifications.
Faux mink eyelashes look very close to real mink lashes. They typically taper towards the end for a more natural look and feel. But unlike real mink lashes, they can maintain their curls with cool aplomb.
Now that you are familiar with the common terms, it is far easier to look for the desired taper and finish. Instead of opting for any brand of eyelash extensions, it is better to look into their feel, vibe and curls.
