    These Are The World's Longest Eyelashes And I'm Openly Weeping


    All right, my curious friends. We all know why we're here, but before I show you the world's longest eyelashes let's take a moment to remind ourselves what average eyelashes look like.

    These luscious lashes belong to You Jianxia of Shanghai, China, and reach a staggering 12.4 centimeters!

    Let's put this into perspective, shall we? Basically 12.4 centimeters (4.9 inches) is longer than a regular Snickers bar, but it's shorter than the average penis.

    I honestly have so many questions. What does blinking feel like? Does she braid them?? Do salons offer eyelash blowout services for her???

    It's not really clear how she was able to grow such long lashes, but I have a few theories. It could be witchcraft, or even some secret miracle grow eyelash concoction. Or honestly, maybe it's Maybelline. I have no idea.


    Anyways, have fun trying not to pay attention to your own eyelashes for the rest of the day!
