Ingredients: 
Calcium Sodium Borosilicate, Calcium Titanium Borosilicate, Mica, Calcium Aluminum Borosilicate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Zinc Stearate, Alumina, Silica, Aluminum Calcium Sodium Silicate, Dimethicone, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Hexylene Glycol, Ethylhexylglycerin. May Contain/Peut Contenir [+/-]: Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Tin Oxide, Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090), Yellow 10 (CI 47005), Ferric Ferrocyanide (CI 77510).
Product: The formula is a finely milled mica aura pigment with a fine white base to make these shade more intense on bare skin and over other products. The texture is buttery smooth and has a nice grip on bare skin. You only need a light hand to apply as these are very pigmented but still easy to buff out.

I found that these shades in the Unicorns Hi-Lite Palette of Happyland, Frolic, & Daydreamin' is similar to the Mermaids HI-LITE Palette in Seashell and Mermaid regarding having larger shimmer particles in the mix as well as the base colour being slightly sheer.

Colour:
Happyland is a hot mauve pink with a shimmer finish.
Frolic is a pale mint green and gold shimmer finish.
Daydreamin' is a pale lavender with a pale gold/orange shimmer finish.

Wear: The Unicorns Hi-Lite palette I get 6-8 hours per shade on their own. ;)

Packaging: Unicorns Hi-Lite palette is a simple cardboard box compact with a magnetic for closure. The palette is heavy due to the board stock they used and the unnecessary thickness of the palette for the pans inside, but not as heavy as the Make Up For Ever Vol. palettes.

The palette cover is a holographic finish that shifts from purple to hot magenta with green depending on the light, but it stays mostly a purple colour. The letter is also done with a mauve metallic foil and embossed lettering.

Daylight swatches: Happyland, Frolic, & Daydreamin', applied heavy and buffed out.
Flash swatches: Happyland, Frolic, & Daydreamin', applied heavy and buffed out.
Compare:
Lime Crime Unicorns Hi-Lite Palette VS Lime Crime Mermaids HI-LITE Palette, Kat Von D Alchemist Holographic Palette, and Kat Von D Metal Crush eyeshadow in Thunderstruck.  
Daylight swatches: Happyland (LC), Seashell (LC), & KVD {pink} Opal. 
Frolic (LC), Mermaid (LC), & KVD {green} Emerald.
Daydreamin'(LC), Pearl (LC), & KVD Metal Crush Thunderstruck.
Flash swatches: Happyland (LC), Seashell (LC), & KVD {pink} Opal. 
Frolic (LC), Mermaid (LC), & KVD {green} Emerald.
Daydreamin'(LC), Pearl (LC), & KVD Metal Crush Thunderstruck.
Happyland is warmer than Seashell shade in the Mermaids palette and deeper than the KVD {pink} Opal shade. 
Frolic is way greener than the Mermaid shade in the Mermaids palette and deeper than the KVD {green} Emerald shade.
Daydreamin' is cooler and darker than Pearl shade in the Mermaids palette, and deeper than the KVD Metal Crush eyeshadow in Thunderstruck.
Verdict:
I'm not a fan of notable shimmer in my highlighters, but like the shades of Mermaids Hi-Lite palette shades of Seashell and Mermaid, these are meant to be not natural at all on the skin. This palette I would say is for those that love raves makeup, festivals and costumers. They also make interesting glitter eyeshadows as well as a top coat with a glitter glue. But this is not the casual customer item at all and probably really don't need or would use it.
