We thought we'd seen it all when it came to beauty trends - feather brows, yellow blush, glitter tears - but this one has really taken us by surprise. Apparently, LED eyelashes are now a thing that you can put on your face.

According to Mashable, these beauties are called F.Lashes. They're interactive, illuminated false eyelashes that appear to change their display animations depending on how you move.

Here is F.Lashes co-creator Tien Pham, who is a designer for tech company Arduino, showing the lashes off on Friday:

According to Pham, the lashes are powered by a teeny-tiny watch battery that lasts about four hours, Mashable reports. They come in pink, red, blue, light blue, white, yellow, and green, and can be applied using regular eyelash glue.

They are controlled by a small Arduino controller that attaches to the back of your head using hair clips. As Pham explains in the video, the LED eyelashes can be put into "dance mode" or "sparkle mode."

According to Pham, the F.Lashes aren't too annoying to wear. "The [F.Lashes] light is NOT blinding," he wrote on his Facebook page. "In fact, I often can't tell I have them turned on. I have to cup my hand over my eye to see the light. You might see a bit of light when you're in a dark room, but it's not much."

Does anyone else think they look like something Katniss Everdeen would wear to a Hunger Games opening ceremony?

While F.Lashes aren't being sold to the masses quite yet, they were shown at the Maker Faire 2017 Editor's Choice, and will be available to the public sometime in July via a Kickstarter campaign.

So what do you think? Will you be wearing LED lights on your eyeballs anytime soon?
