Ask Lilly Lashes to Stop Selling Mink-Fur Eyelashes

Did you know that if you buy mink lashes, you're buying fur? 

Minks are violently slaughtered and skinned for fur coats and other items – including false eyelashes, like those sold at Lilly Lashes.

Mink Lashes Are Vile

Minks are shy, solitary animals who are fearful of humans and like to forage, climb, and swim in vast habitats. But undercover investigations have revealed that fur farms confine them to cramped wire cages that are often caked with waste. The animals frequently show signs of extreme psychological distress, such as frantic circling and self-mutilation, and suffer from infections, gaping wounds, and other illnesses and injuries that commonly go untreated. Mink farmers commonly use the cheapest killing methods available – including gassing, electrocution, and neck-breaking – before peeling the skin off the minks' bodies. 

False-eyelash companies like Lilly Lashes know that no one wants to buy vile animal fur, so they are making misleading claims about their mink lashes: Lilly Lashes markets some mink-fur lashes as "vegan".

Fur Farms Are Breeding Grounds for Disease

Farms packed with sick, stressed, and injured minks are petri dishes for viruses like the novel coronavirus, which has not only been found on mink farms but has also been transmitted from minks to humans. 

The potential for fur farms to spread viruses is so dangerous that the Dutch Parliament has voted to ban the breeding of minks effective immediately. 

And people want to risk gluing the fur from these animals onto their eyes? Insane. 

What You Can Do

Lilly continue to sell mink-fur lashes, despite knowing that animals used for their fur live and die horribly and that COVID-19 can be transmitted from minks to humans. Hundreds of beauty brands – such as Sarah Jane, Urban Decay, Tarte, Too Faced, and Mayoress Cosmetics – already refuse to sell fur. Please, help animals who are suffering right now by urging Lilly to drop fur lashes immediately!
