Holographic lip gloss has an unfairly bad reputation. It’s not that we don’t understand where it comes from, though. Even the word “holographic” sparks instant flashes of unfortunate makeup and outfit choices of the ’80s and ’90s.

But lately, holographic makeup has undergone a makeover of sorts, emerging on the other side as, well, kind of chic? It’s no longer just available in the frosted, icy hues that haunt our nightmares. These days, holographic lip gloss, especially, is available in an endless variety of shades and levels of glitter. Whether you’re new to the trend or are a daring expert in the art of holographic lips, there really is something for everyone.

Like, even Dior and Christian Louboutin have hopped on board, so don’t you think that you should, too?

Below we’ve rounded up 15 of our favorite holographic lip glosses that are still totally wearable.
