If you're a true child of the '90s, odds are you're still low-key obsessed with unicorns. No shame; I am, too. Which is why I — and the rest of the internet — are FREAKING THE HELL OUT over a set of rainbow unicorn makeup brushes.

This is the Ultimate Unicorn Brush kit.

Made by indie brand Unicorn Lashes, the 10-piece rainbow pastel makeup brushes have blown up in an absolutely MASSIVE way on Instagram.

Featuring synthetic rainbow bristles and pearlescent unicorn horn handles, these gorgeous brushes have gone viral — and they haven't even been released yet.

According to the brand's Facebook page, there are already 25,000 people on the waiting list for this set.


*screams, faints*

They even come in a cute gem-shaped case!

The 10-piece brush set will be available online ONLY for £45 (around $56 USD), and drops sometime in early October. Unicorn Lashes is a small indie brand, and it's been pretty overwhelmed by all the attention and pre-orders!

But of course, there's already been ~unicorn drama~ unfolding online. First, scammers posted FAKE eBay listing for nonexistent brush sets...

Then, a much BIGGER beauty brand posted a photo of their own, yet-to-be-released unicorn brushes.

These candy-colored brushes are from Tarte Cosmetics. Some people are saying that the resemblance to the now-famous Unicorn Lashes brush set is a little too real.

And, look. Unicorn horns aren't a new or unique idea — I'm amazed it took *this* long for unicorn brushes to become a thing. But big brands getting "inspired" by smaller ones is nothing new in beauty — it would certainly be unfortunate if that was the case here.

Posting about the similarities, Unicorn Lashes' founder simply said "The brushes will do the talking."

That's about the classiest response you can have, tbh.

If you want to be the first to get your hands on these unicorn brushes, there are a few ways you can do it:

You can like the Unicorn Lashes Facebook page, where updates on the release will be posted. You can also sign up to be alerted by email via Facebook, or you can get on the waiting list by heading to the brand's site.

Until these brushes launch, I'll be over here like...
