    Now this is the kind of Beauty Kitsch that I adore! Completely impractical and painful if used. How insane is this as a kids toy? Which I actually assumed it was as the eyelashes are plastic. But looking at the packaging closer I realize they’re pushing this for females of all ages. No one is too young or too old to get permanent eyelid damage. I wonder if the adhesive is Crazy Glue?

    I also love the positioning of the eyelashes on the packaging –
    off-center and too high up above the eyes.

    I also love the font on ‘Lashes’.

    Can’t quite read the date at the bottom. Is it 1963?

      oh yeah! it does say 1963, eagle eye willis! there are also directions:
      strip off adhesive cover and press firmly against upper part of eye lid. lashes may be trimmed with sharp scissors. to revitalize adhesive touch sticky surface to hot light bulb for several seconds.

    “Safe – Harmless” I doubt. I must get these for the upcoming Halloween. The blood that will most certainly be dripping from my eyes will be an added bonus.
