Why Everyone Should Go Crazy Over “Unicorn Tears” Makeup Primer, According to Two Instababes
Every few months, the internet becomes obsessed AF with a super buzzy beauty item that fills up our feeds. From the Kylie Jenner Lip Kit hysteria to the Huda Beauty Rose Gold Shadow Palette madness, standout beauty products get all the attention. So what has the Instagram beauty scene buzzing RN? The answer is a little product that combines two ultra fun trends (i.e. unicorn tears and the industry’s love of skin serums) into one magical product. Introducing Fársali Unicorn Tears! This epic new serum and primer — from the eco-luxury brand that brought us the Rose Gold Elixir ($35) — has officially cast a spell on internet makeup mavens. Here is why two beauty insiders love it.
While it won’t be available for pre-order until January 2017, mega babes Farah Dhukai and Isabel Bedoya (who got a sneak peek), say it’s worth the wait. They’ve even taken to social media to share their love — and downright obsession — with this fantasy multi-tasker. Here’s why:
This radiance-boosting formula is packed with antioxidant-rich superfruit extracts (acai berry, goji berry, elderberry and blueberry) to protect skin from free radical damage, as well as vitamin C to brighten and even tone. And because it’s oil free, it can be used on all skin types without leaving your complexion looking or feeling greasy. On the contrary, it leaves skin nourished and dewy with a subtle shimmer (like Snapchat’s pretty filter, but IRL).
Farah Dhukai: Farah is a natural beauty enthusiast and pro DIY-er. Her videos for wasabi lip plumper and an oh-so gooey melting Ninja Turtle face mask are legendary. She’s also a legit makeup whiz, churning out some of the fiercest faces on social media. No wonder she has four million followers on Insta alone!
Why She Loves It: Did we mention that this serum is pink and sparkly? Yep, it legit looks like unicorn tears… or what we would imagine them to look like, anyway. Use it as a primer (apply 2-3 drops on your face before applying your foundation), to revive bone-dry cream makeup (mix 2-3 drops to bring new life to highlighters and shadows) or to enhance highlighter. According to Farah, this product works best when you put a few drops on your cheekbones and apply your fave highlighter on top for an otherworldly glimmer.
Isabel Beyoda: 1.5 million beauty junkies follow Isabel Bedoya on IG for her jealousy-inducing makeup looks. Some of our faves? The time she turned herself into a golden goddess for Halloween and her perfectly contoured holiday look.
Why She Loves It: This simple, standout formula applies easily and is completely oil free, which works perfectly for her next-level eye makeup tutorials. It’s safe to say that this skin-enhancing, glow-inducing serum totally lives up to its mystical name. January can’t come soon enough!
