Okay Internet, it’s time to talk. I know that new trends are fun, and we haven’t all really collectively freaked out about something since that magical Internet day when the llama chase happened and The Dress debate almost destroyed all of our relationships, but it’s time to discuss the rainbow trend that is taking over everything. By now, you’ve seen the rainbow highlighter that, for some reason, made people lose their minds, and you’ve also heard about the crazy lines people in New York City waited on to get their hands on a rainbow bagel. This is just the tip of the brightly colored iceberg. Rainbow is *~on trend~* and no one can stop it… but these crazy rainbow items are getting a little out of control.
I’m not trying to be a party pooper. I love a good rainbow colored item just as much as anyone else. Rainbows remind me of magic and unicorns and happiness, and I think it’s really cool that they’re enjoying a moment in the spotlight. I just don’t want to see rainbow get burnt out too quickly, and I fear that is what’s happening. Remember when we were all obsessed with the ’90s for three straight years? Now I can’t even think about the ’90s without wanting to scream. I liked the ’90s! The Internet ruined it for me. I don’t want the Internet to ruin rainbow for me too.
So, let’s get your rainbow fix cured and out of the way. These 20 crazy rainbow items are proof that this trend needs to be stopped before it gets to be too much. What’s next? A rainbow dyed pet (probably)? A rainbow car? A rainbow pizza?! Honestly, I think that’s too much for even the Internet to handle.
1. Rainbow Eyelashes
My god. The eyes."How have I never noticed them?" "The color…" I breathed. "When you stand in the light… They're amazing…like molten gold…I could paint those eyes…" I reached forward but then mesmerized, I pulled back…I couldn't think about anything while looking at the…"They're beautiful…You're beautiful…" #thesoloqueen #rainbowlashes
I’m not sure how this happened or who has the time to actually do these, but I have to admit they’re cool. Completely over-the-top and crazy? Yeah, but they still look cool.
2. Rainbow Grilled Cheese
Say cheeeseeeeeee 有幾款味道芝士揀 例如榴蓮同香蕉lol 我就揀左 開心首選 (King size $42) 包含左紅色既芝心蕃尋味(蕃茄) 藍色既薰衣草芝戀(薰衣草味) 同綠色既綠葉之選(羅勒香草味) 好多色素haha 多士烘得香脆 蕃茄同薰衣草味都唔係好嚐到 basil 味就較突出 而分別用上4款芝士Mozzarella, cheddar, emmental 同 gruyere 既黃色芝味無窮 芝士味頗香 但有點oily同膩 整體唔係出眾 只可惜 愛情裡有啲關係 就好似芝士拉絲一樣 藕斷絲連 欲斷難斷 折磨你於無形中… 評分: 5.8/10 KALA Toast 卡洛芝士吐司專門店 荃灣荃興徑昌泰大廈shop 4-6
Just when you thought rainbow couldn’t look cooler, it appeared in cheese form. I mean… this is just… it’s a work of art, really. An unnecessary one, but still beautiful.
3. Rainbow Freckles
I’m not going to lie, this is really pretty. Like, stupid pretty. It’s not practical, but I kind of like imagining a world where Hunger Games style makeup is the norm.
4. Rainbow Latte Art
Okay, this rainbow latte art wins for coolest latte art of all time. Hands down.
5. Rainbow Eyebrows
Imagine if we all started doing this to our eyebrows. It would be so colorful everywhere.
6. Rainbow Highlighter
I just wanted to give a little info before Monday comes along and PRISM is released. With this color you can imagine it is quite a bit more work to master this unicorn in a pan. The rainbow goes all the way throughout and it takes a lot of time and care to create… With that being said PRISM will have a slight price increase and cost $22. All our other colors will remain $16 including SUGAR SPUN and MIRROR MIRROR… I hope you guys understand! Thank you for all the love and support of our new products! We appreciate you! #bitterlacebeauty
Who doesn’t remember the day an innocent little rainbow highlighter blew up and caught all sorts of attention? I still don’t quite understand why, because I don’t think it’s practical in any way, but it is quite pretty to look at.
7. Rainbow S’mores
Okay, I have no clue how this girl made this, but I do know that I want it.
If you want to know how to actually make rainbow s’mores, try this recipe from Delish. It’s a Peeps s’mores skillet, and it definitely isn’t just for Easter.
8. Rainbow Nikes
I can’t pretend these rainbow Nikes aren’t everything you’ve ever wanted in a pair of sneakers. I just can’t.
9. Rainbow Waffles
What if your breakfast was shaped like a rainbow with a cloud every morning? Life would be lovely. And it can be, with this recipe.
10. Rainbow Bangs
If you’re not into full-on rainbow hair, you could opt for rainbow bangs… which seems… difficult.
11. Rainbow Bagels
Eat it for the Insta?
12. Rainbow Roots
GET ON IT! #Repost @keuneanz ・・・ RAINBOW ROOTS Have you tried this with our colour craving yet!!?? #hair #model #cut @shearcouture #rainbowhair #rainbowroots #rainbow #hairstyle #hairrainbow #hairdo #haircolour #hairup #haircut #hairdye #hairdresser #hairdressing #hairdressinglife #hairstylist #brighthair #pastelhair #pastelcolor #coloursoftherainbow #love #hairoftheday #hairofanartist #hairfashion #fashion #instagood #instahair #hairofinstagram
Pretty? Sure. Expensive? Definitely.
13. Rainbow Eye Makeup
Oh, sorry. Did you think this would be eye makeup you could wear on a day-to-day basis? Because it’s not. It’s eye makeup you would literally never wear and would only apply to take an Instagram picture.
14. Rainbow Eye Shadow
Day 6 make up challenge. #makeupchallenge #undiscovered_muas #jeffreestarcosmetics #velourliquidlipstick #makeuplooks #colorfulmakeup #rainbowmakeup #anamariaisland #florida #makeuplove #anastasiabeverlyhills #contoured #contourandhighlight #mykie #sssamantha #amazingmakeup #day6 #muas #makeupartistunite #glamlook #selfie #makeuplovin #lovinmylook
This eye shadow, though, is eye makeup you could realistically wear if you want to be unique and cool.
15. Rainbow Cake
Visually appealing, yes, but this has to take SO much work.
16. Rainbow Pancakes
I mean, yeah. Okay. We get it. Rainbows are everywhere.
17. Rainbow Eyeliner
How long do you think this took?
18. Rainbow Hair
I low key love this. What can I say?
19. Rainbow Sushi
Such amazing sushi! Choose health. Choose compassion for animals. Choose to help the environment. Choose vegan.

Okay vegans, that’s ENOUGH.
20. Instagran’s New Logo
No one asked for this, Instagram. NO ONE.
Okay, I’m not going to lie: I went into this post expecting to hate everything and I LOVED EVERYTHING. Bring on the rainbow, guys. I’m ready.
