We've seen how obsessed people have gotten over highlighters.

Now, the game has stepped up a bit with the demand for a different type of glow. Holographic products are becoming a trend and you can't blame the public for going crazy over products that give off a distinct 3-D shimmer.

This craze is nothing new. Back in the '70s, people were rocking iridescent fashion items from flannel shirts to flared pants. It only makes sense that the holographic look is making a comeback along with other decades favorites like '90s brown lipstick and '80s bold eyeshadow.

Here are some products to achieve that out of this world glow.

#1 Milk Makeup Holographic Stick in Supernova

Made for the low maintenance girl, the Holographic Stick in Supernova gives a subtle purple iridescence that compliments all skin tones with just a few swipes.

And like all Milk Makeup products, it includes nourishing ingredients like mango butter and avocado oil to still maintain the skin's natural glow. Available on Amazon.

#2 MAC Frost Lipstick in On and On

The tendency with holographic lipsticks is to give your lips a shiny but sickly pale finish. This lipstick from MAC's frost lipstick line won't have that problem with its deep purple shade and blue pearl shimmer. Available in SM Makati.

#3 Sigma Beauty Lip Switches

But if you're the mood for a more intense shine, Sigma offers the ultimate holographic lip glosses. The results of these lip switches are so out of this world that it won as Best Lip Effects in Nylon's 2016 Beauty Hit List.

Another great thing about them is how you can wear it just as is or as a lip topper ideally over bold or dark colors. Available online.

#4 Colourpop Super Shock Shadow in Rex

Make your eyes pop with this deep and bold colour by Colourpop. Their Super Shock Shadows are known to be intensely pigmented and are easily applied with just your finger.

This particular shade is a black based shadow with a blue shimmery finish that gives you this badass but ethereal look. Available online.

#5 OPI Nail Polish in Peace & Love

Top off your holographic look by having your nails done with this colour from OPI. This nail polish's sheen can vary from purple to green, giving off that supernatural vibe. Available in Rustan's.
