Step aside freckle tattoos! Your time is OVER feather eyebrows! Swedish designer Tien Pham has invented what he hopes will be the NEXT BIG THING in drag beauty products: Interactive LED eyelashes that stick to your eyelids with regular eyelash glue.
From Oddity Central:
Called F.Lashes, these eye-catching accessories come in pink, red, blue, light blue, white, yellow and green, and feature different lighting modes, like follow, where the lights follow the movements of your head, dance mode, where they just blink at short intervals when you move your body, and sparkle, with the LEDs lighting up individually to create a sparkle effect.
Lashes attach to your eyes with eyelash glue, and are connected to a tiny battery at the back of the user’s head, with barely visible wires. A switch on the battery lets you turn the lashes on/off, and change the lighting effects. Apparently, wearing these LED’s right above your eyes is not uncomfortable at all. Pham says he often forgets he has them on, and can only see the light they emit if he cups his hand above them. You might see some light in dark environments, but not much. Battery life is reportedly around 4 hours.
Pham says he will be launching a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to make them a reality in July. Sign up for a newsletter on Flashes.se, to be notified when the campaign finally launches, so you can pre-order your own LED eyelashes. No word on the price yet, but the designer said “I am going to keep the price as low as possible because I really just want people to have these.”
What do you think? Will you be wearing light-up eyelashes? Or is this doomed to failure? We know some girls will prefer to stick with the basics from lashpilot.com
