2016 was the year of the magical and mystical when it came to the colors in beauty products. Think delicate mother of pearl with iridescent hues and subtle rainbow pastels that shone out of an AB slick. Beauty products included practically everything from lip glosses, eye palettes, blushers to straightening irons and skincare serums. With some eye shadows even going viral, it appears that this is one trend that may stay around for a while.
To celebrate the best of the magical iridescent beauty products of 2016, we’ve rounded up ten best iridescent beauty products that we love the most.
- Wet ‘n’ Wild Color Icon Rainbow Highlighter – $5
Taking the most gorgeous colors of the rainbow and adding an iridescent twist, this highlight stormed onto Instagram and was an instant hit. Not hard to see why. Why restrict yourself to just one highlighter when you can have several?
In keeping with the iridescent theme, this bright and beautiful makeup brush set looks great just sitting on your bathroom shelf. It seems a shame to use them, but we did.
No reason to go for a manicure when you’ve got this stick on set by Static Nails. Lasts for around 18 days and comes in a choice of three colors, obviously our favourite is the iridescent one.
- BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss Iridescent Topcoat in Hypnotized – $18
Look like a lush alien when you apply this out-of-this-world lip gloss, complete with holographic particles that will hypnotize and bedazzle!
This is what this magical trend is all about, pearly, oil slick colour that reminds you of a magical time on another world. Simply stunning lip cream that drenches the lips in iridescent hues.
Another product that makes you look like you’ve just arrived from some distant galaxy far way. Use it to delicately highlight cheek bones or go for a less subtle look.
This lip shine is ultra moisturising and adds the most magical look to your lips. Tiny little iridescent pearls that catch the light in different ways add to the holographic look of this gloss.
Not only does this flat iron look spectacular, but it gives amazing results too. In fact, you get 89% straighter results which mean much less frizz. It has titanium plates which allows them to heat up quickly and spread the heat more effectively throughout the plates, leading to better results.
- Hot Tools Rainbow Gold Salon Curling Iron/Wand – Extended Barrel – $55
If curls are what you crave, look no further than this curling wand from Hot Tools. You just have to stop staring at the beautiful barrel for long enough to style your hair.
- Lancôme Advanced Genifique Limited Edition Iridescent Bottle – $105
Nope, the serum is not iridescent but look at the bottle! We had to include it and besides, it works wonders on ageing skin.
