Why Us?

In a word - actually in two words;

» Quality & Honesty

Two things you have always gotten and will always get from Eyelash Lab. 

1. Quality

As you can see, competitors' lashes can be uneven and inconsistent in curls.  Eyelash Lab's lashes are produced with highest quality control and they all have even and consistent curls.

2. Honesty

We don't import Mink lashes and we don't market mink-like synthetic lashes as mink lashes.  Honesty and integrity are two values we consider extremely important at Eyelash Lab.

Truth about "Mink" Lashes

The truth about so-called "Mink" lashes may surprise you.  We want to dispel any myths regarding these mink lashes, once and for all.  Please read carefully.

  • Overwhelming majority of "Mink" lashes in the market today is NOT mink hair.
  • The name "Mink" lashes was created as a marketing trick used by a few manufacturers and unsuspecting importers/marketers. 
  • Most "Mink" lashes in the marketplace are nothing more than 0.10mm thick synthetic lashes that are coated.

Don't get us wrong.  There are REAL mink hair lashes out there, but they are not practical because of these reasons.

  • They are prohibitively expensive.  A small case (just about the size of our bulk lash) would have to retail at about $150.  
  • Because they are real animal hair, it's very hard to control them.  It's practically impossible to have same curls and length among the lashes.
  • Look at the picture of real mink hair on the left - they are thoroughly uneven in curls and length.

So, with that, here is how you can tell if your "mink" lashes are real mink hair or specially treated synthetic hair.

  • First, just as in the picture, real mink hair lashes are uneven in curls and length.
  • Second, you can burn a few strands of mink hair.  If they're real, they should smell like "fried squid" or something to that effect.  If you smell funky chemicals coming off, then you've got problems.

Finally, most of the "mink" lashes come from China. 

We import only from South Korean manufacturer that first developed lashes for lash extension process as we know today.  They briefly produced real mink hair lashes years ago and stopped soon after because they realized the minks (source of raw material) were put under enormous cruelty.

And therein lies our two biggest problems with mink lashes - issues with animal cruelty and marketing under false pretenses.  We take them very seriously and will NEVER import real mink lashes, nor market synthetic fiber lashes as "mink" lashes.

Honesty and straight-forwardedness are two of the most important values at Eyelash Lab

Basic Lash Information

There are some very basic information about different lashes you need to know.

  • What kind of curl do you want?
  • Which thickness do you prefer?
  • How long do you want your lash to be?

First, there are three major types of curls.  There is some confusion about naming of these different curl types, but we at Eyelash Lab use curl names that are given by the manufacturers themselves.

  • J curl: the most common curl type
  • C curl: gaining popularity, for customers who want more pronounced look
  • O curl: sometimes called "D" curls by other companies
  • For those who are familiar with other curl names, please look at the chart below.

 

 

I curls and L curls are very rarely used, if ever and JC curls and CO curls are relatively new developments.  You can see the thickness difference on the above chart.

  • 0.07mm thick: most closely resembles natural thickness of human lash (not frequently used)
  • 0.10mm thick: resembles thickness of human hair
  • 0.15mm thick: most popular and frequently used
  • 0.20mm thick: best selling thickness in the past year or so
  • 0.25mm thick: can weigh down on certain clients, ideal for ethnic clients with thick hair
  • 0.30mm thick: noticeably heavy on the eyelids

J, C, O curls and 0.15mm, 0.20mm, 0.25mm thick lashes are available at Eyelash Lab.  (Other curl and thickness lashes may be custom-ordered.  Contact us for more information.)
