10 Holographic Beauty Gifts for Your Unicorn-Obsessed Friend

As much as people hate on the unicorn trend, we're always down to support an insanely gorgeous iridescent highlighter or a galactic lipgloss. The holiday season is here, and if you know anyone who is still on the holographic beauty trend train, you've stumbled upon the right gift guide. Just because the cold, crisp air is coming in strong doesn't mean that we can't glow all winter long.
