What is mink?
Peekaboo Lashes are made up of 100% natural mink fur which has been gently brushed and collected from the natural shedding cycles of the mink animal from free - range farms. They are then sterilised to ensure that they are hypoallergenic and suitable for wear. We would like to make it clear and public that no harm has been done to these beautiful animals. Unlike synthetic lashes, our 100% natural mink fur is free from any chemical processing and dyeing which allows for an extremely soft, lightweight and natural look. The hairs are totally organic and natural - as such, they will have a natural curl and gloss to them.
What is the difference between synthetic and mink false eyelashes?
Genuine mink lashes are the utmost in luxury. The main difference between synthetic and mink lashes is in the quality. Because mink is 100% natural fur, it provides a natural shine, is super lightweight and flexible. In addition, the mink lashes give a feather-like look, can be curled like real human hair and can be worn up to 30 times with proper care. Synthetic eyelashes, although cheaper, are irritating to the eye, fake and unnatural when worn, and can only be used a few times. They also undergo chemical processing and dyeing. Mink eyelashes are considered a premium high end product when compared with synthetic ones.
Why choose Peekaboo Mink Lashes over Eyelash Extensions?
The synthetic mink hair that extensions are made of require costly maintenance and require a professional for application and removal. Application can also take up to 2 hours to apply. In addition, the glue used for eyelash extensions are packed full of chemicals and almost all contain formaldehyde compounds that can cause cancer.
Our mink eyelash strips are made from sterilised organic mink hairs, undergo NO chemical processing or dyeing and only takes a few minutes to apply. Peekaboo Mink Eyelashes are much safer than eyelash extensions!
Are the lashes stackable?
Absolutely! We are aware that some prefer the natural, undetected look while others like a more glamorous full-on affair! As such, our lashes are totally versatile - one set will give you a stunning, natural look while stacking two sets will give you even more glamorous eyes and add even more dimension! All Peekaboo lashes can be mixed and matched.
How long does it take to apply Peekaboo Lashes?
Practice makes perfect! Like anything you do in life, the more you do it the easier it will be. On average, users of false eyelashes take less than 5 minutes to apply the lashes; this includes waiting for the glue to become tacky and for the lash to set on your natural lashes. So from start to finish, applying your Peekaboo Lashes should take you less than 5 minutes!
Is eyelash adhesive included with my purchase?
Eyelash adhesive is not included with your purchase. However, we are in the process of partnering up with our favourite eyelash adhesive brand, so we can provide you the best quality glue.
What glue should I use?
We recommend DUO Striplash Glue, in either Clear or Dark Tone. Clear, as the name implies, dries to an invisible finish while Dark Tone provides a natural, dark line akin to eyeliner. Voted the world’s best glue for strip lashes and a firm favourite of professional makeup artists for decades, DUO is waterproof, long lasting and can be bought from all drugstores. For those sensitive to latex, there is also DUO Brush On Striplash Adhesive (Clear or Dark) which is free of latex as well as formulated with vitamins to promote healthy skin and lashes. The adhesive formula is also safe for contact lens wearers and sensitive eyes.
How many styles of lashes are offered at Peekaboo?
At Peekaboo, we offer a total of 9 custom designed lashes. Each style is designed to achieve a different look and for a different occasion, with some lashes being more dramatic than others, some with more length than others, and so on. In addition, all of our lashes are stackable allowing you to go as natural or as glam as you want! We are also looking to expand into other styles so watch this space.
Who can use false eyelashes?
Everyone and anyone! False lashes are suitable for anyone and are for people of all ages, of all skin tones. Whether it is for work, a night out, dance recital, wedding or anniversary, lashes can be worn by anyone, anytime and anywhere (just not under water!).
What if I am a first time user of false eyelashes?
We suggest first time users follow the detailed explanation on how to apply Peekaboo Lashes. If you are a first time user of false eyelashes, we suggest getting a pair of synthetic lashes to practice. After several applications/practices using the synthetic lashes, you should be a pro and you will be ready to use your Peekaboo Lashes!
What colour are the mink eyelashes?
The mink fur has not been chemically processed or dyed so the colour will be glossy, natural black-brown. Most people that use synthetic lashes are concerned that the darkness of synthetic lashes may be too harsh for their skin tone, but because mink fur is a natural black-brown colour, Peekaboo Lashes are perfect for all eyes!
Can I apply mascara on my Peekaboo Lashes or any sort of product?
Do NOT apply mascara to the actual mink fur as this can ruin the quality of the fur and can limit the number of uses. The reason we do not suggest applying any products on the mink is that they may contain oil that can ruin the shine and quality of the fur. It is, however, okay to apply mascara on your natural lashes before applying your Peekaboo Lashes.
Can I curl my Peekaboo Lashes?
Yes of course! Because Peekaboo Lashes are made of 100% natural mink fur, you can curl the lashes as if they were your own! The best part about using mink fur (aside from how gorgeous it makes you look) is that the curl stays for a very long time and maintains its shape.
How do you clean Peekaboo Lashes?
Mink eyelashes are known for their durability and quality, allowing for up to 30 uses! To ensure you get the most use out of your Peekaboo Lashes it is essential to take care/clean them after each use. Carefully peel off the mink lashes and with a pair of tweezers (or delicately with your fingers), peel off the excess glue, ensuring you keep hold of the band so that the hairs are not pulled off.
Where do I store my Peekaboo Lashes?
To maximise the number of uses for your Peekaboo Lashes we highly recommend placing them in their original casing when you are not wearing them. This will prevent the lashes from collecting dust and bacteria which can ruin the mink fur.
Can I swim with my Peekaboo Lashes?
No, we do not recommend swimming in your Peekaboo Lashes as this can ruin the curl and style of the lash. Mink fur is very delicate and soaking the lashes in water can ruin the design. Make sure you take off your Peekaboo Lashes and store them in the original casing before you go for that swim!
How do I measure and trim Peekaboo Lashes?
Our Peekaboo Lashes come in one standard size, allowing you to trim the lashes to fit your eye shape. Before applying glue and trimming the lash, measure Peekaboo Lashes so that it fits the length of your natural lash line. Always trim from the outer end of the lash and not the inner. Usually we recommend users cut just short of the natural length of the eye as this will provide an easier application and will prevent the band from poking the inner corner of your eyes.
