The Starbucks Unicorn Frappe is not the only mythical beast-inspired product this year. Holographic strobing products inspired by fairies, unicorns, mermaids, and celestial beings are taking over the cosmetic market this spring. We have sampled, swatched, and assessed these magical products for how close they come to how they are advertised. To get a better idea of everyone’s go-to products, we scoured through reviews to compare to our own experiences with the holographic makeup and selected a few trending strobing products you need to try.
Milk’s Makeup Holographic Stick, $28, milkmakeup.com
Milk just released a holographic stick ($28) that comes in two iridescent shades: Golden Peach and Supernova. It is vegan and cruelty-free and packed with skin-friendly ingredients like coconut oil, mango butter, and avocado oil. It received a 4/5 on Sephora out of 299 reviews. The brand claims that it compliments all skin tones but from reading the reviews, it seems that the Supernova shade does not show up on pale skin tones. Other concerned users mentioned that it doesn’t seem to blend well with foundations and instead ends up wiping the foundation off. However, it can be applied to the face and body and the Supernova shade produces a beautiful violet sheen.
