We’ve all you need to channel the unicorn trend this spring…
All things unicorn seem to be on the up recently–Starbucks caused an online frenzy with their newly release Unicorn Frappuccino which then inspired some pretty fabulous Unicorn Frappuccino nail art. However, what you may not have heard of are some delicious-looking but not quite edible beauty products that will leave you with enough sparkle for the season.
Here are our top five unicorn-esque essentials to keep you iridescent this spring.
1Unicorn Snot Glitter Gel
Made lovingly in Brooklyn, the Unicorn Snot Glitter Gel range is the brainchild of a product design studio called FCTRY who are enjoying spreading more unicorn magic everywhere. Their glitters are supposed to make you glow, sparkle and shine to your heart’s content while providing an easy to use application. The gel-based product dries quickly, leaving an even layer of glitter without the sticky residue. The best thing about these beauties? They’re vegan and cruelty-free.

Ciaté has a range of GELOLOGY nail polishes that we’ve been obsessing over for some time. All the polishes in the collection are gorgeously pigmented with colour, giving off strong unicorn/ mermaid vibes with lashings of chrome. Our personal fave is definitely Moondust because of its golden purple hues and jewel-toned effect–it’s honestly so dreamy to look at. If you’re looking for shimmer and shine and a way to jazz up your nail game, definitely give Ciaté’s collection a try.

4Stila Cosmetics Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow
Create an out-of-this-world glow for your eyes with Stila Cosmetics’ range of glossy and super sparkly liquid eye shadows. The enchanting palette comes in a range of gemstone hues that are bound to fit a variety of looks while keeping your eyes looking magical. We’re in love with the Ballet Baby shade which is a sheer baby pink with silver sparkle.

5Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Eyeliner
The glitter liner beauty trend resurfaced late last year and here’s to hoping it doesn’t disappear again anytime soon. A single line of glitter in place of black or coloured eyeliner really adds a different dimension to eye makeup looks. Urban Decay’s Heavy Metal Glitter Liner is a sure favourite of ours because of how defined and bright it is. It’s super pretty, even when layered over black eyeliner. Although we personally love Glamrock, Distortion has real unicorn vibes going on.

Shine and slay effortlessly with Revolution’s Unicorns Unite Palette. You’ll be able to spread your magic by creating bold and bright looks with hues of mystic purple, lush peachy nudes and unicorn-inspired smoky tones. You’re bound to look dreamlike.
