Unfortunately for Brits everywhere, a lot of these ‘unicorn brushes’ are sold overseas, which means that you have to track them down online, fork out for the full set and then pay extortionate shipping fees on top.
Until Primark steps up with its propensity for producing budget versions of popular products.
The high street store has taken pity on unicorn fans everywhere, creating its very own set of four magical make-up brushes.
Think turquoise spiralled handles, ombre lilac bristles, and a whole lot of whimsy and sparkle.

At the moment, somewhat tragically, these bad boys are only available in Ireland, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal and America.
But Primark has confirmed that these dreamy brushes will be coming to the UK, although with a slight colour twist: the turquoise is being swapped out for a soft lilac.
Which suits us just fine, to be honest. Turquoise is more mermaid-esque than unicorn, after all.
Currently, a release date has not been confirmed, although the high street store has done its best to reassure Brits that those brushes (all to be priced under a tenner) will be hitting shelves very, very soon.
We recommend limbering up now, so you can outstrip everyone in the rush to the tills…
