Carlashes: What Every Outrageous Female Stereotype Needs

You have a pink Barbie convertible, pink Swarovski crystal-ed velour tracksuit, and requisite tiny yapping dog. You’re a walking female stereotype. So what’s your life missing? Well, carlashes, of course.

If you’ve found yourself on the Car’s Section of, maybe, you’re loving cars. The odds are also good that you’ve formed a relationship with a car at some point; perhaps you even gave it a name.

Do you remember ‘Cars,’ an animated comedy film, produced by Pixar?! This animated movie proved what most of us have known since we were children: the front end of a car looks like a face.

So, now when you’re an adult, don’t you wanna to add some bling and make your car even sexier? You can now add eyelashes to your car’s headlights (as seen above). A company called Turbo Style Products has come up with the idea and called them CarLashes — yes, that’s right, fake eyelashes for your car.

CarLashes can be cut to fit nearly any vehicle and are simply attached to the vehicle using 3M automotive grade adhesive. The manufacturer recommends that you affix the lashes to the glass of the headlight or the underside of the hood, but claims the adhesive tape will not react with or damage the vehicle’s paint.

This aftermarket glamification is apparently available for $24.95, but that’s not all! If ridiculous eyelashes aren’t enough, you can add “Crystal Eyeliner” for an additional $19.95. That clear, rhinestone-style bling appears to attaches directly to the paint. Like you, we’re astonished and horrified.

Check out the CarLashes with their optional Crystal Eyeliner in action in the video below.

“Well, carlashes, of course. Some baby genius has gone out and created applique eye lashes and “crystal eyeliner” for your car’s headlights. Because your car should be a parody of a feminine woman, just like you,” she added.

Carlashes’ e-commerce site has apparently endured some intermittent downtime due to elevated traffic levels, likely from a combination of genuinely interested window shoppers and people like us, who simply had to see it to believe it.

Antuan Goodwin at the Australian CNET’s wrote: ” CarLashes are sort of silly, a whole lot goofy, and will probably rip off the first time the lashed vehicle is taken through an automated car wash.”

“But in a world where Truck Nutz and Miata Teeth are allowed to exist, who are we to judge when someone wants to have a little fun with his or her ride?” he added. [Car Lashes via Auto Blog and The Frisky]
