Just like dance trends, there are many products that go viral on TikTok, appearing everywhere on the “For You” page. 

In fact, over the past few months, we have noticed an increase in makeup and skincare product reviews and recommendations. 

Here’s our list of five popular skincare and makeup products that multiple creators have been raving about on TikTok.

1. NYX Shine Loud Pro Pigment Lip Shine

Pigmented lipstick that doesn’t transfer and comes with a gloss? No wonder people are crazy over the NYX Shine Loud Pro Pigment Lip Shine

Makeup artist Stephanie Valentine first shared the product on TikTok back in December. Soon, the “makeup side” of  TikTok was filled with people reviewing the same product. 

TikTok reviewers found that NYX’s Shine Loud lip shine is mask-proof, food-proof and long-lasting. They described the lipstick as feeling smooth and comfortable on their lips and said that it was so pigmented that one swipe of it on their lips was enough.

However, applying the lipstick without the accompanying gloss left the reviewers’ lips feeling dry and sticky, so you should always use the lipstick and gloss together. 

The product retails for $17.25 on Beauty Bay. 

2. Fenty Beauty Eaze Drop Foundation

Fenty’s newest makeup product, the Eaze Drop Foundation, was released on Mar 26. Since then, makeup enthusiasts have been reviewing and recommending it on TikTok.

As an addition to Fenty’s foundation line, this new product is meant to give your skin a more natural look, perfect for the days you feel like doing a “no-makeup makeup look”.

The Eaze Drop Foundation features Fenty’s signature “long-wear but light” formula and has buildable coverage. 

Reviews say that this foundation leaves you looking dewy. It also minimises the appearances of pores and fine lines with a soft-blur effect. 

Additionally, the compact packaging makes it easy to bring along wherever you go.

This product retails for $45 at Sephora. 

3. Maybelline Sky High Waterproof Mascara

According to many TikTok makeup gurus, the Maybelline Sky High Waterproof Mascara is like “eyelash extensions in a bottle”.

Not only does the comb-like mascara brush allow each lash to be coated individually, but the brush is also bendable, which is perfect for reaching the inner corners of your lashes.

The mascara also comes in two shades: “brownish black” and “very black”.

This CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser helps exfoliate and smooth skin, while effectively removing oil and dirt and sweeping away dead skin cells.

Suitable for acne-prone skin, this cleanser took over both TikTok and YouTube as it helped people soften and smooth their skin without disrupting its protective barrier.

5. The Ordinary Peeling Solution

The Ordinary AHA Peeling Solution is a 10-minute exfoliating facial that uses 30 per cent alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) and 2 per cent beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) to combat blemishes and make the skin texture smoother and more radiant.  

This product went viral on TikTok because of its blood-like colour and consistency, which added an element of fun to TikTokers’ skincare routines.
