Who doesn't love a good eBay deal? But are there some things—like sunglasses, for example—that you're less likely to buy through the online marketplace because you're unable to try them on?

Say hello to the eBay Fashion iPhone App version 1.2. It comes with a new function called "See It On" which allows users to virtually try on sunglasses from the comfort of their own smartphone screen!

All you have to do to get it to work is open the "See It On" app, isolate an image of yourself using your iPhone's front-facing camera, and then choose different styles to try on—including aviators, novelty glasses, fashion styles, giro, wayfarer, and rimless specs. Check it out and let us know how you like it!
