Mink eyelashes have become more and more popular in the recent years, with celebrity endorsements and cheap prices. They give the illusion of longer fuller lashes, but is it worth our vanity to abuse and torture these animals?

There is no way to get cruelty-free mink fur, the poor animals will have to be kept on a fur  farm in individual cages, as mink are solitary animals and can be aggressive. As anyone who has looked into the mink fur industry will know, mink are killed when their winter coats come in, so the fur taken for lashes would be taken just before or after the death of the mink.

Mink lashes are an unnecessary product, there are plenty of other cruelty-free ways to feed our vanity.
