If you're a beauty guru and religiously follow makeup trends throughout the year, you know that 2016 was one of the biggest years yet for beauty product launches, including some of the most bizarre beauty products of 2016. (Yes, beauty was just as weird as everything else that hapepned over the last year, folks.) Even though some beauty brands basically ruled over the beauty world with their new launches — like Kylie Cosmetics' multiple lip kits and palettes and Glossier's serums and highlighters — there have been some crazier beauty products and tools that have also left quite a mark on 2016.
While some of these products will definitely make you stop and scratch your head, many of them are weird in the most wonderful way. Who knows, you just might find a new favorite product! From crazy rainbow highlighters that went viral on social media to dead foot skin removal kits (ew), these products may sound totally crazy, but are actually pretty effective and innovative. Don't be turned off by the way they look or what they're called — you can't judge a book by its cover, after all.
If you're in need of gift ideas, consider any of the below items — they're sure to please any beauty guru in your life.
1. Oops My Lip Tint
With up to 12 hours of wear time, this lipstick is proof that smudge-free makeup does exist! You just apply the product to your lip, let it set, and peel it off — voila! A natural looking lip tint that will last you all day long.
2. Juverest Wrinkle Sleep Pillow
Designed by a certified plastic surgeon, this pillow minimizes facial contact with a pillow surface in order to prevent wrinkles on your face. It might look uncomfortable and strange, but it's actually very soft and super inventive.
3. Tony Moly Timeless Ferment Snail Lip Treatment
This lip treatment is made with snails that were fed gold tea — yes, you read that right — and it helps moisturize, return elasticity to the skin, and heal dryness over time.
4. Dermaplaning Tool
Have annoying peach fuzz on your face? This small tool resembles an in-office dermaplaning treatment to remove dead skin cells and unwanted fine facial hair.
5. Tony Moly Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch
Place this vitamin C-infused lip patch on your lips to leave your lips renewed and smooth.
6. Bitter Lace Beauty Rainbow Highlighter
This crazy rainbow highlighter became so popular this year, some people were auctioning off the product for more than $1,000. Even though you currently can't purchase the rainbow highlighter from the Bitter Lace Beauty Easy shop, the company's Instagram account says a restock is coming soon.
7. Baby Foot
Baby Foot's main ingredient is fruit acid, which is a more gentle acid that helps remove dead skin cells that build up over time on your feet. With an easy-to-use three-step process, your feet will feel as smooth as a baby's foot after one week.
8. Super Aqua Cell Renew Snail Sleeping Mask
Wear this snail skin mask over night to relieve skin stress and help improve your skin's elasticity.
