The unicorn trend is in full swing for spring. There have been horn-inspired makeup brushes and multi-colored highlighters, but the latest product takes the beauty trend to a whole new level. FCTRY'S Unicorn Snot Lip Gloss is just as magical as you'd imagine. I'm talking glitter, color, and shine like you've never seen before. Swatches of Unicorn Snot Lip Gloss will prove that you need these mystical items in your makeup bag.
You might have already seen FCTRY's Unicorn Snot Body Glitter, since the product has been around since 2014. Now they're breaking into the cosmetics world and expanding the line in the most magical way possible — with five shades of Unicorn Snot Lip Gloss. The makeup items come in pink, purple, yellow, green, and silver, and are available on the FCTRY website right now. But as cool as the item is, the lip gloss almost never made it to the site.
"We actually just started with the name. I just really wanted to make something called Unicorn Snot. And I knew it was going to be glittery and gooey, " Jason Feinberg, founder of FCTRY tells Bustle via email. "At first, I actually was looking into making a glitter glue just because I couldn't think of what other goo to use and the project just stalled for a while because, well, glitter glue was just kind of hard to get excited about."
I never thought rubbing Unicorn Snot all over my lips would be this much fun. The colors go on smooth and have a serious shine to them, and the cotton candy scent didn't hurt either. Honestly, I thought that having glitter all over my lips would be uncomfortable, but it wasn't at all! It was just like any other gloss, but with way more shine to it. Here's how the purple shade looks on my lips.
The amount of glitter depends on how much of the product you put on. I did two layers, and it was noticeable but not too shocking. Although Unicorn Snot comes in five different colors, the shade is barely noticeable on the lips. The color of the glitter does change with every product, but you'll get a sheer, glossy finish. The thicker the swatch, the more color you'll get.
If these swatches are getting your excited, you'll be happy to know that you can shop them right now. All five shades are available separately for $7.99 each or in a bundle for $27.99 on the FCTRY website. Oh, and one more thing — even more Unicorn Snot products are on the way.
"Last year Unicorn Snot blew up and we literally couldn't make enough of it. It was crazy — and really fun. So now we've begun expanding the line line but we're doing it really carefully. We want to maintain the fun and quirkiness that makes it special. Unicorn Snot lip gloss is the first new item in the range," Feinberg says. "We plan on coming out with a few new Unicorn Snot items next year. I don't want to give away too much but the idea is to stick to glittery goo, and it turns out there's plenty of fun stuff that fits into that category."
To be completely honest, this product is well worth the $7.99. Not only does it give a little bit of unconventional shimmer to the lips, but it also is so much fun to put on. Whether you're looking to give this as a quirky gift or actually use it in your everyday life, you really can't go wrong. I can't wait to see what the brand thinks up next!
