How did V-Luxe by i ENVY get its start?

V-luxe by i-ENVY initially launched in 2015 with 9 skus of human hair collection. For the first time in the eyelash market, this collection offered tapered-end technology that differentiated the brand from other eyelash brands. After the successful launch of the first year, V-luxe launched a mink-inspired human hair collection which provided a mink effect with fluffiness from human hair. Aside from the innovative new technology, V-luxe by i-ENVY gradually established a “premium, high-quality” brand image by offering slide cases to store reusable eyelashes and high-quality eyelashes handcrafted by artisans.

What inspired the Extended – Faux Mink 05 and the Real Mink 03 Lashes?

Extended Faux mink 05 (VE05) was inspired by the desire for a fuller eye look with minimal eye makeup. The idea is to achieve a natural vibe while still creating a special and eye-catching appearance. We designed VE05 with the intention of allowing consumers to enjoy this look. Our Extended Real Mink VEM03, on the other hand, is a very classic and natural design that works well for anyone. It's perfect for those who are new to mink eye looks or for those who prefer a timeless design.

What material are the faux lashes made from?

Extended clusters are made of premium PBT silk fibers which makes the fibers soft and strong with natural glossy effect.

What is the best way to apply the lashes?

First, apply a light coat of Bond near the root of natural lashes. Next, use the Extended Applicator to pick up clusters and place them underneath the base of natural lashes, slightly away from the waterline. Lastly, apply a thin coat of Seal under the clusters to eliminate any sticky residue and secure the clusters!

What pro tips can you give us about the Extended – Applicator, Bond & Seal, and Overnighter?

Extended Applicator is especially great for squeezing the clusters with natural lashes, to achieve a more secure hold. After usage, wipe off any residues on the applicator with alcohol or remover to prolong its usage. And the key to using Extended Bond & Seal is to apply just the optimal amount. Remember that a little goes a long way! Lastly, Extended Overnighter is a great option for extending the wear up to 10 days. Just apply a thin line under the clusters and re-apply additionally as needed! 

How long will the lashes last?

With the Extended Bond & Seal, Extended clusters can be reused up to 3 times and with the use of Extended Overnighter, clusters can last up to 10 days. 

Are either the faux lashes or the real mink lashes compatible with mascara or is it necessary?

The faux mink or the real mink clusters are all you need for a flawless extension effect, and mascara is not necessary. To preserve the fluffiness of the mink clusters, mascara usage is not recommended.

 What’s the best way to remove the faux lashes?

Extended Remover provides the best formula to remove all Bond & Seal, Overnighter residues and maintain optimal condition of the lash clusters. Just saturate a cotton pad with the remover, place over the eyes for 10 seconds, and gently wipe and remove the clusters, Bond & Seal, and Overnighter.

Is the Extended Remover for all skin types?

Our Extended-Remover is for all skin types. It provides a gentle, easy, non-damaging removal of Extended clusters and eye makeup. 

Are the faux lashes reusable and for how many uses?

With gentle care, clusters are reusable up to 3 times. To reuse Extended clusters, place used clusters on a paper towel and coat with Extended remover or oil-free makeup remover. Then, let it sit for 10 seconds. Saturate a cotton swab with remover and gently wipe away BOND & SEAL residue from the clusters.

What’s the best way to clean these lashes?

Gently wipe the lashes with Extended Remover to get rid of any sticky residues and leave them to dry. With gentle care, the clusters are reusable.

What should we NOT do with these lashes?  

To minimize eye irritation, do not apply the clusters to contact the waterline. Also, to prevent loss of natural eyelashes do not rip out the clusters when removing. Instead, use Extended Remover for proper cluster removal.
