What TikTok made me buy: Beauty essentials

I’m sure like me you’ve been spending all your time ordering anything and everything you see on TikTok. But do you ever wonder which items are worth the hype? That’s why I’m here to ease your mind and tell you the ones that should make their way to your shopping basket.

NYX shine loud pro pigment lip shine:

A lip-gloss that doesn’t transfer. Don’t worry I was skeptical too, but I have tested the popular product and facts are facts people, she don’t move, it don’t move! it comes in a number of colours, so you’ll be spoilt for choice. So be a believer and go get the lip shine now! hurry! Why are you still here! Go!

Maybelline sky-high waterproof mascara:

Say hello to another affordable product. Is it just me that loved spider lashes but hated the clumps and the mess? I’ve found the perfect mascara, that gives you long and luscious lashes without the clumps. With its thin wand, you have all the control with less product. yes, I know, you’re welcome.

KVD good apple skin-perfecting foundation:

You a fan of a full-coverage foundation? I know I am, and it almost sounded too good to be true but after watching many TikTok videos I just had to get it. Let me tell you coverage is definitely what she’s selling. Trust me it is beautiful. But sadly, if you’re part of the oily skin community this ain’t for you.

Elf putty primer:

Real talk, I have this primer in my makeup bag and it’s the best thing I’ve ever brought! The velvety feel of E.L. F’s putty which is said to help reduce pores and last all day has been widely praised using the viral hashtag #elfMagicAct. It doesn’t disappoint especially if you have oily skin like me and it’s only £8 so you won’t be breaking the bank.

The ordinary peeling solution:

This will have you looking like something out of a horror movie, but I promise you it’ll be worth it. it’s great for acne scars and evening out your skin tone whilst improving skin texture. it’s magic in a small affordable bottle. Retailing at £6.30. But be warned to use this in moderation, do your research and always follow up with SPF.

Pixi DetoxifEYE eye patches:

Here’s an aesthetically pleasing product to add to your wish list. The hydrogel eye patches are a lifesaver for tired eyes, and they come equipped with the cutest spatula to make application easier for you. I’ve already added it to my basket I suggest you do too.
