Here’s the thing: we love unicorns! And if there’s one thing we love more than unicorns, that is unicorn-inspired beauty products. Lime Crime’s new unicorn hair dye, which could help anyone easily get unicorn pastel hair, just jumped on our unicorn-themed beauty product list, which includes, among others, Tarte’s unicorn-inspired summer 2017 makeup collection, as well as Christian Louboutin’s Loubichrome nail polishes.
Unicorns are actually already one of Lime Crime’s biggest inspirations too, as proven by the brand’s long-lasting unicorn lipsticks (which are one of the beauty industry’s most copied and sold items), but we are more than excited about these brand new products anyways.
When it comes to hair dye, Lime Crime is surely the place to go, especially if one is looking for an ultra eccentric hair color to dye her life. While Pravana is launching a color-changing hair dye, now, after decades and decades of bold and bright shades, Lime Crime has just gone further into the magical world of hair dyes creating a specific dye that, according to the label’s website, will “turn you into a real life unicorn”.
About to drop extremely soon at limecrime.com, Lime Crime’s unicorn hair dye promises a full coverage (which is no small feat, when it comes to bold hair dyes) and a 100% cruelty-free, vegan formula, which is also one of the label’s trademarks. “Unicorn Hair is a vegan, semi-permanent hair dye that conditions without damaging for a bold temporary hair color that gracefully fades,’ states the official note on the website.
Although there is no official release date yet (you can find it neither on the website nor on the brand’s social media accounts), we do know each Lime Crime unicorn hair dye retails at $16, and that Lime Crime’s unicorn makeover consists of a grand total of 13 different shades.
According to Lime Crime, the brand took three years to develop the hair dye’s shades and formulas, so we are not that surprised to see how gorgeously pigmented and magical each color looks. As for the different shades, Lime Crime’s unicorn hair dyes include Pony and Strawberry Jam, namely a vibrant purple and a Lolita-approved red accordingly, a grunge-inspired green called Jello, a baby pink dubbed Bunny, three different shades of blues called Dirty Mermaid, Blue Smoke and Anime, a Gargoyle dusty purple, a fiery Leeloo red, a soft Salad green, a Nineties-inspired Neon Peach, and two light purples named Chocolate Cherry and Sext.
Each shade will look gorgeously unique either when applied alone or along with another (or more than one) dye, and we bet many Instagram beauty gurus are already planning new, colorful and bold looks to try out as soon as the hair dyes finally become available to be purchased online and in stores.

Unicorns are real and their magical superpowers are now available as makeup products thanks to Tarte Cosmetics, which has just introduced its own dreamy unicorn makeup collection for spring and summer 2017 that will make you believe in yourself for sure. Entitled “Believe in Yourself’, Tarte’s unicorn-inspired makeup collection is set to debut on TarteCosmetics.com and Sephora starting from March 15th, with price tags ranging from $30 up to $40.
After teasing us on Instagram for months, Tarte has finally revealed both the collection’s products and the launching date, which is sooner than we expected. Given the fact that, as anything that is unicorn-made, it will surely sell out in a matter of seconds, we recommend getting ready to act fast as soon as March 14th is over. Besides being relatively affordable and utterly colorful, Tarte’s Believe in Yourself 2017 makeup collection is an all-round one, meaning that one could get a lot of high-quality products all at once.
Tarte’s new magical range of unicorn makeup products includes everything from brushes to cheek palettes, which are made of vegan and cruelty-free materials. Here is what you are about to find on Tarte’s website in roughly a couple of days.
Tarte Magic Wands Brush Set ($39.00)
This set of makeup brushes is probably the most anticipated one, as it features five different, yet equally gorgeous, unicorn brushes. There you get the Green Blending Eye Shadow Brush, the Blue Shading Eye Shadow Brush, which will help you define your smokey eyes; the Magenta Contour Brush for the perfect contouring; the Pink Powder Brush and the Purple Liquid Foundation Brush, which will make applying foundation or powder consistently easier. For a set of five brushes, we could fairly state it is pretty affordable, too!
Tarte Make Believe in Yourself Eye & Cheek Palette ($40.00)
Tarte’s Make Believe in Yourself palette combines magical unicorn-inspired vibes with one of this spring’s makeup trends, namely strobing. Kaleidoscopic and shimmery indeed, the palette could be used on both the cheeks and eyes, with its pigments specifically made to last all night long.
It includes a grand total of ten different shades, which range from a matte dusty pink to shimmery browns, meaning that the palette is not only suitable for almost any skin tone, but also makes it possible to play with an abounding variety of styles that easily transition from more formal to informal occasions.
Tarte Spellbound Glow Rainbow Highlighter ($30.00)
Spring is synonymous with glow, and this rainbow-inspired highlighter is basically what we have been waiting for all winter long. Plus, the packaging is amazing and a must-have for those who love to collect makeup!

We have all bought something just because it looks cool. In some cases we were ultimately disappointed with the product, but in others we found a magical product in incredible packaging that we were in love with. The Christian Louboutin Loubichrome nail polishes are definitely the latter.
Christian Louboutin‘s unicorn nail polishes will retail at $30 a piece and currently exist in three shades of impeccably stunning chrome. The colors are limited edition, and whether you are looking forward to the highly pigmented color or the application process and holding the iridescent chrome ‘unicorn horn’ top, the look is undeniably amazing.
The bottle itself is cut with a multifaceted appearance and the carton the nail polish comes in has a combination of all three shades in the collection, probably to motivate you to purchase the other colors because you will have a visual reminder of what you are missing.
The Christian Louboutin Loubichrome nail polish is picking up the unicorn inspired beauty product trend from 2016 and magically continuing it in 2017 for anyone who wants products that match their imagination. Interestingly, the ‘unicorn horn’ cap was actually created off the body of a calligraphy ink pen that was used for inspiration.
The limited edition Christin Louboutin Louichrome collection has 3 mini bottles in different incredibly bright and pigmented shades with a super high shine gloss. The brush inside is a triangular one, designed to pick up and deposit color much easier and in just one coat for the full bright effect.
Thanks to this, the mini bottles of polish will last longer as you are required to use less for the full vibrant look. The application will be smoother and without air bubbles, and you can get away with a single coat, but the recommendation is for two coats to be applied.
Additional inspiration comes from specchio, “a laminated leather with a mirror-like quality, loved by Christian Louboutin for its ability to capture light and take on a new direction’ according to the Christian Louboutin website.
The Christian Louboutin Loubichrome I is a luminescent neon yellow. The Loubichrome II is a deep burnished red with a bit of a surprise orange tint. The Loubichrome III has a vibrant violet magenta color within the clear multifaceted bottle.
Currently the shades are available on the Christian Louboutin website, also online at Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue, Selfridges, Net-a-Porter and Neiman Marcus. The bottles are so amazing to look at and really stand out when compared to the typical silver or gold Louboutin nail polish bottle. Each color within this trip is infused with the ideal amount of light reflection thanks to the pearlescent reflectors mixed thoroughly into the nail polish.
The Christian Louboutin Loubichrome nail polishes are made without the addition of Formaldehyde, Tolulene or DBP. They are also gluten free!

Too Faced Cosmetics is an incredible brand with magnificent makeup, and the holographic lipstick dubbed Unicorn Tears is a mystical dream color. The periwinkle blue lipstick goes on with an iridescent lavender sheen with hints of baby blue sparkle. This is an unexpected miracle color that looks good on so many different skin tones and that is evident just scrolling through twitter mentions of the lipstick color.
The color has been shown all over the Internet, especially by those who managed to snag one, and on so many different skin tones that it is nearly bewildering to see. And the Too Faced Unicorn Tears lipstick looks exciting and hydrating and holographic on each person.
Anything with a reference to unicorns in the name is expected to be magical or at the very least, moderately impressive. The Too Faced Unicorn Tears lipstick is magical, ethereal, as expected from the name, everything that is amazing is this lipstick. The holographic nature of this lipstick means that light is caught and reflected interestingly making the colors look blended differently based on your vantage point.
The color is iridescent, and so the color is much different on lips and skin than it is fresh out of the tube. The Too Faced Unicorn Tears color is listed as an iridescent shimmer on the Too Faced Cosmetics website and was unexpectedly popular, even by their standards. The color sold out last year, and after being restocked, is again sold out. It is beautiful and the creamy, with the color going on rich and smooth with a single swipe application.
The application of the Too Faced Unicorn Tears lipstick can be done alone, or over another color, adding a bit more depth to the iridescent effect and creating a new look that might further flatter your skin tone. The color is strong, both in the tube and on skin, and can be a bit much on the powerful unicorn side of things thanks to the brightness of the lilac and periwinkle blue shades, as well as the amount of shimmer packed into the color.
For those who want to try the color, but are a bit intimidated, consider layering with another color to create one you are more comfortable with. The Too Faced Unicorn Tears lipstick is the party version of what Ruby Woo is for the flattering red: it can work on everyone with minor adjustments when needed.
For some, wearing just a bit less, for others, layering on a bit more can make the difference in the strength of the color against the skin. The color is sheer with a single swipe, but definitely noticeable thanks to the pigment in the hydrating color. Adding in more layers just makes it brighter, more sparkly, more unicorn-esque.

Skincare is the most important step in having a radiant complexion. Although makeup can do a lot, the basis of a youthful, fresh look is always in taking proper care of the skin. The rich heiress Paris Hilton grew up with this advice. That is the main reason why the gorgeous blonde is now launching a line of products that will accompany you on the way to perfect skin. Dubbed ProD.N.A, the collection features four items.
“From a very young age, my mother taught me the importance of taking care of my skin. I have been obsessed with finding the best products on the market to help me look and feel young, so after years of searching I decided to create a line that can offer the absolute best results.”- said Paris in the press release.
In the brand new ProD.N.A. range, you’ll find a Dual Action Cleansing Gel, Advanced Recovery Serum, Lift & Firm Eye Cream and Face & Decolletage Cream. The ingredient list includes hyaluronic acid, aloe vera, Kakadu plum, caviar lime and more. The most intriguing part is the new complex she created with the help of scientists and chemists.
According to the brand, Hilton worked with world-renowned scientists to create the special complex, the whole line is based on. The site states: “GenoMatrix‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√´¬¨¬¢, a revolutionary formulation of powerful enzymes derived from marine microalgae and other natural, active ingredients. This proprietary concentration penetrates deep within the layers of skin and supports the body’s natural DNA repair mechanism to counteract the effects of aging from the inside out’. In other words, the products act on the level of the DNA in the cells, preventing damage. The powerful enzymes are a part of all four releases.
The popular fashionista is an icon from the ’00s, heiress of the well-known Hilton hotels, DJ, singer, influencer, and so much more. This is not her first dip in the beauty world. Paris already owns a makeup line and a collection of over 20 fragrances. She recently debuted her first skincare product, a rose water spray called Unicorn Mist.
The ProD.N.A. collection is now available on parishiltonskincare.com. Most of you will find the range a bit over the regular budget, but Hilton’s line sounds quite promising, at least from what we know so far. Paris made sure to include a luxury packaging, unique formula and according to her- instant results. Prices start at $29 for the cleansing gel and go up to $115 for the recovery serum. The brand still hasn’t released any information on whether they are working on other products at the moment.

This year is already so much more diverse than 2017 in any possible way. The times when some ladies felt left out of the fashion and beauty worlds are slowly coming to an end. It’s already becoming a responsibility for beauty companies to introduce more shades for different skin tones. Another beloved makeup brand heard the screams of their fans. Tarte Cosmetics announced they will be expanding their shade range.
“For Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation, 10 of the new 15 shades are in the tan to deep which brings our total to 17 tan to deep shades out of 40. For creaseless concealer, 9 of the new 16 shades are tan to deep making 13 of our 30 shades within this range. We believe actions speak louder than words. Instead of talking about it, we wanted to quickly take action and get to work on more shades. We are excited to share that our shape tape matte & hydrating foundations, shape tape concealer & Rainforest of the Sea Water foundations will get shade extensions this year.”- Tarte told Bustle.
It seems that the popular label will start by introducing new shades for four of their best-selling products. If the Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Foundation is the one you swear by, the chances are you will now be able to find the ideal shade for you. It was available in 25, so Tarte decided to add 15 more. There will be five different undertones: golden, sand, neutral, beige and honey.
When it comes to concealers, the label’s Creaseless one is more than iconic. It’s the ultimate favorite of numerous makeup addicts and popular bloggers. You’ll be happy to hear that they’ve added 16 shades, which makes a total of 30. The cult Shape Tape concealer will now have a whopping range of 30 shades.
All of these products were first released in 2013, so it was about time Tarte’s best-sellers to be more inclusive. Recently there was a lot of backlash regarding the launch of their Shape Tape foundation which introduced a very limited shade range. The brand issued an apology and is now making things better with this huge upgrade.
The brand didn’t waste any time on teasers or campaigns. They simply dropped all the additions online. Tarte’s extended ranges are released for sale on the brand’s website. You can head to tartecosmetics.com to find your ideal shade. Most of the new releases are in the medium and dark shade ranges. We sure hope they will do the same thing with the rest of their products.
