We Want All Of These Unicorn-Inspired Makeup Brushes

The jury is still out as to whether unicorns exist. (We, for the record, are believers.) But unicorn makeup brushes? Those are about to become very, very real, my friends. And among a sea of basic, black, utilitarian beauty tools, they are just as magical-looking as one might imagine.

Dreamed up by U.K.-based Unicorn Lashes, which specialises in falsies, the set of 10 brushes has our 8-year-old selves (and grown-up selves) swooning at the design. Opalescent handles are twisted into horn-like points, rainbow pastel bristles look like puffy clouds of cotton candy, and a little unicorn head is etched into the silver ferrule.
Even better? No unicorns — or other animals — were used in making the vegan brushes. The bristles are made of synthetic taklon, a super-soft fibre that feels luxurious against the skin. The Ultimate Unicorn Kit will cost about £40 and include brushes for applying powder, blush, concealer, brow product, highlighter, contour, and foundation, plus three eyeshadow brushes — all housed in a unicorn-adorned bag.

The collection is slated for release sometime next month. And thankfully, pre-order is available on the site now. Because just like unicorns themselves, supplies of these fanciful brushes will vanish fast.
