Mink fur fake eyelashes popularised by A-list celebrities such as Khloe Kardashian and Cardi B are on sale in the UK for as little as £4 a pair, an investigation found.

The probe found dozens of pairs on sale, boasting claims of how they are made “from only the best premium material” making them “super fluffy”.

Paul Healey of Moving Animals, which carried out the research, said: “Shoppers will be horrified to learn that products on sale in the UK are still profiting from the cruel fur industry by selling mink fur products.

“Denmark’s discovery of a mutation of the coronavirus on their mink fur farms should be the final wake-up call for these brands and retailers to stop selling fur altogether.”

Liverpool-based Tatti Lashes says its 3D Luxury Mink Eyelashes have been seen on celebs such as Khloe Kardashian, Ariana Grande, Cardi B and Nicki Minaj.

Falseyeslash.co.uk sells pairs for as little as £3.99, while Beauty Bay sells its Opulence Lite mink lashes, made by US firm Lily’s Lashes, for £20.

The Manchester firm boasts of its fur lash product: “Designed with super fine mink hairs, the lightweight lashes sit seamlessly along the lash-line delivering an effortlessly natural finish.”

Last year Doll Beauty dropped its claim that its eyelashes made from mink hair were cruelty-free after a complaint to the Advertising Standards Authority.

But the firm still sells the £10 lashes.

Lick Lashes claims its £10 mink lashes are “a huge hit amongst many make-up artists around the UK”.

Meanwhile, Denmark is culling mink after a “cluster five” Covid mutation infected 12 people.

Horrific footage has emerged from Denmark, showing mink being stuffed into a mobile gas chamber to be destroyed. Vets in Ireland have also called for a cull.

The Mirror is campaigning with Humane Society International UK to ban the sale of mink.

Tatti Lashes says it is taking “drastic steps” to stop selling mink eyelashes by developing synthetic alternatives.

Falseeyelashes.co.uk said it hopes to be completely mink-free by early 2021.

The other firms did not respond.
