Headlight Decals. The New Thing In Car Fashion!

If you think you've seen it all, then maybe you ain't seen nothing yet.

Is that car wearing eyelashes, or am I seeing things? That was my reaction the first time I noticed a car with what seemed at the time almost impossible to fathom. But lately, it is very easy to see, not just one, but as many as three car or SUV adorned with vehicle type eyelashes as I drive down the roads of my small Georgia cities.

The first image to the right is the image I took of a car that was parked in my neighborhood Wal-Mart. The car/minivan is adorn with a curly-type pink eyelash sticker. It's hard not to steal a look, and even a shot at this parked beauty.

Who came up with such a thing as dressing up a car or any vehicle whatsoever in eyelashes anyway? Don't they have better things to do? To be honest, my initial thought about the vehicle headlight eyelashes was, "Have we really become that vain in our outlook of life and what's important as to now go to the extent of dressing up the exterior of our cars to make them look like cartoon characters like, Lightning McQueen and Sally, of the Disney Pixar movie, Cars.

Now, even they, Lightning McQueen and the gang, didn't have eyelashes, mouth that moves, maybe, but not eyelashes. And parents, do you find yourself having to explain to your toddlers why cars like Lightning McQueen talk and do all those tricks? Well, your job just got even more complicated! Try explaining to your kids why cars now have to wear these headlight eyelashes.

Headlight Eyelashes, Really? Yes, Really!

I know I come off in my introduction as bashing these new headlight decals, but the truth is, on second thought, I do really dig these headlight eyelashes on cars. New cars, that is. It has this happy go appeal to it. Makes you want to love and hug the car that's wearing it.

What I don't get is why any man in their right mind would drive around in a car that's wearing these decals. Imagine a guy in a pink car with eyelashes. Maybe it just me. But if you're going to use these decals on your vehicle, here are a few things you need to note:

Car Headlight Eyelashes, What Are They?

These are small to large size eyelashes made exclusively for your vehicles; cars, SUV's and Trucks. Headlight eyelashes are made of high quality PVC (Polyvinyl chloride), a stronger, softer, but more flexible type plastic that's used in clothing and upholstery.

These Headlight Eyelashes come in a 3D style, and a regular sticker-type style. Both of these styles are sold in pairs. The 3D car eyelashes and come installed with pre-attached 3M automotive trim tape backing. The 3M Automotive tape supposedly, will not damage the paint of your vehicle and makes it easy to attach to your vehicle.

The 3D Headlight Eyelashes are designed to stay on your vehicle at normal driving speeds, which means there's a possibility they'll come off if vehicle is driven at high speed. There have been customers complaints of decals coming off in heavy rain, and even of scratches on vehicles cause by the lashes flicking back and forth at high speed/ high wind.

Headlight Eyelashes can be found in the following colors: black, yellow, green, and purple. You can buy them flat and shape or curl them yourself, or buy the pre-curled ones. They can even be cut to your desired length.

Dos and Don'ts of Headlight Eyelashes Decals

Dos
Don'ts
Do use the original, authentic onces. These came curled, and they won't damage your car.
Don't use the fake, floppy ones. These are usually the ones that are accompanied with instuctions on how to curl the eyelashes. They tend to beat against your vehicle while in motion and can cause scratches and possibly dents.
Do use the ones that matches or compliment your car color.
Don't just pick any color. Pick one that appeals to the eye. Pink Eyelashes decals don't look good on a tan or hunter green car*.
Do use them on new or fairly used cars.
Don't apply eyelashes decals on old damaged, wobbly headlights. It gives the appearance of a car under the influence* lol.
*Just my opinions. Not a written down law.

How Can I Tell The Real Car Eye-lashes/Eye-liners from The Fake?

Be aware that most of the decals out there are clones of the original. It is common to see decals of the same look or type that are more expensive than others, and vice versa. Thus, the saying, "What you pay is what you get". So, how can you tell?

  • If what you're buying is a lot cheaper than the other guy's. That may be an indication that you're not getting the real thing.
  • The original vehicles eye-lashes are designed to last. They are made with durable polypropylene). And, they are pre-curled, so you're not required to curl these yourself.
  • The real vehicles eye-lashes and eye-liners tends to weight a little more, and cost a lot more than the fakes. So, if you're buying from a brick-and-mortar store with different style or price, beware!.

So, be sure you buy yours from a credible source like eBay or from your neighborhood auto parts dealers. That way you can always go back for a quick refund or replacement if things didn't work as you expected.

Deck Your Car With Eye-lashes/Eye-liners!

And so, it seems that headlight eyelashes are gaining popularity, and are here to stay. More and more vehicle owners are opting to decorate their cars, SUV and Trucks with these decals and other vehicle decals, such as, diamond and crystal eyeliners and stick-on lips. What would they think of next, vehicle mustache or diaper.

I think they are a riot but my husband would have a fit if I tried to put them on one of our vehicles. Why can't a woman's car have a little pizzaz? Nice hub Comfort, good choice of topic.

Voted up, useful, and interesting.

@tillsontitan - Yes. It doesn't hurt to dress those baby up if we choose to. After all, we probably spend the most time in them outside of our home.

Thanks for your great input. Quite appreciated.
