I think TikTok may now outdo YouTube as the best place to see the latest beauty products in action. Just scroll through the feed and you’ll find all the hair, makeup and skincare trends. The videos are short and have great music, so it’s lots of fun!
In a single session of scrolling, I found tons of things I want, like this matte liquid lipstick that’s super pigmented, and this CC cream that won Allure’s Readers’ Choice Award last year. Oh, and this Instant Age Rewind concealer is in my Amazon shopping cart right now. Check out my full list of 37 Amazon beauty products that TikTok made me buy. You’re sure to want one or two. Or 20.
