Starting with the base, I decided to try out the Glow Recipe pore tightening toner and the Watermelon Glow Dew drops. These products were actually a birthday gift from Sephora, and although they come in travel sizes, I was still able to get a good idea of their effectiveness. The full-size Watermelon Glow pore tightening toner retails at $34, while the Watermelon Glow Dew drops are priced at $35.
I must admit that I have been loving these products and have seen a noticeable difference in my skin. Not only does it give my skin a beautiful glow, but it also enhances the overall effect of my makeup. I would definitely consider investing in the larger versions of these products once I run out.
If you’re unsure about whether these products will work for you, I would recommend starting with a smaller size or value size. This way, you can test it out on your skin and see how it performs.
Moving on to the eye makeup, I decided to try out the highly popular high-end product, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam eyeshadow palette. This palette has been all the rage on TikTok, and I wanted to see if it lived up to the hype. It is priced at $45, so it is definitely on the pricier side.
I have to say, I was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the eyeshadows in this palette. The pigmentation is amazing, and the shadows blend like a dream. The color selection is versatile, making it suitable for both natural and more dramatic looks. The only downside is the price, but if you’re a makeup enthusiast and can afford it, I would definitely recommend giving it a try.
On the drugstore side, I decided to try the Maybelline The Falsies Lash Lift mascara. This mascara is quite affordable, priced at around $10. There were so many positive reviews about this mascara on TikTok, so I had high expectations.
I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed with this mascara. While it did add volume and length to my lashes, it also clumped and smudged throughout the day. If you’re on a budget and looking for a drugstore mascara, I would recommend giving it a try, but keep in mind that it may not be as long-lasting as some high-end alternatives.
For my face products, I decided to try out the cult-favorite high-end brand, Fenty Beauty. I opted for the Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation, priced at $35, and the Match Stix Matte Skinstick for contouring, priced at $25.
The Pro Filt’r foundation is incredibly popular on TikTok, and I can understand why. The coverage is buildable, and it leaves a beautiful matte finish. It also lasts throughout the day without oxidizing or creasing. However, I would recommend moisturizing well before applying this foundation, as it can emphasize dry patches.
The Match Stix Matte Skinstick is also a winner in my book. The formula is creamy and easy to blend, and the shade range is impressive. Whether you’re looking for a natural contour or a more chise
Of it goes a long way. I have to admit, it does give a nice, hydrated feel to my skin, but I’m not sure if it’s worth the steep price tag.
Moving on to the next product, the Fenty Beauty Pro Filt’r Soft Matte Longwear Foundation. Now, this is a TikTok viral product that I had to try out for myself. I’ve seen so many rave reviews about it, claiming it to be the best foundation for a flawless finish. And I have to say, it does live up to the hype.
The coverage is amazing and it blends effortlessly into my skin. It gives me a smooth, airbrushed look that lasts throughout the day. However, for someone like me who prefers a more natural makeup look, I find that this foundation can look a bit heavy if applied too much. So, a little goes a long way with this one.
Moving on to the eyes, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Eyeshadow Palette is another high-end product that has gained popularity on TikTok. The shades in this palette are absolutely stunning. I love the warm tones and the pigmentation is incredible. The shadows blend easily and create a beautiful, sunset-inspired eye look. However, the price of this palette is quite steep, and there are definitely more affordable drugstore options that can give similar results.
Now, let’s talk about brows. The Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow+ Volumizing Eyebrow Gel is a holy grail product for many on TikTok. It’s supposed to give you fuller, more defined brows in a matter of seconds. And while I do like the convenience and ease of use, I find that it can get a bit clumpy if I’m not careful with the application. Overall, it’s a good product, but there are definitely drugstore alternatives that can give similar results.
Moving on to cheeks, the NARS Orgasm Blush is a cult favorite that I had to include in this TikTok viral makeup look. It’s a beautiful peachy-pink shade with a hint of shimmer that gives the cheeks a natural, flushed look. The pigmentation is amazing and it blends effortlessly into the skin. However, the price of this blush is quite high, and there are definitely more affordable options out there that can give a similar effect.
Finally, let’s talk about lips. The Kylie Cosmetics Lip Kit in the shade “Candy K” is a TikTok viral product that I had high hopes for. The color is a gorgeous nude shade that complements a variety of skin tones. The formula is comfortable and long-lasting, and I love the matte finish. However, the price of this lip kit is quite expensive, and there are definitely more affordable options on the market that can give a similar look.
While some of these high-end products definitely live up to the hype, I can’t help but feel that there are more affordable drugstore options that can give similar results. Makeup can be a personal preference, and what works for one person may not work for another. It’s important to test out products and find what works best for your skin type and preferences. So, while I appreciate the quality and performance of these high-end products, I believe that there are more budget-friendly alternatives that can give a similar, if not the same, effect.
Drunk Elephant Bronzing Drops
That does go a long way, so this has lasted me a really long time. I probably will not be purchasing it again after this Ive actually pair. My moisturizer with the drunk elephant bronzing drops these retail about a 38 dollars. I got these for Christmas and it is currently August, and so it definitely has lasted me quite some time.
I have heard things about the LOreal dupe for this. I heard that its good, I dont, think I would ever purchase this personally with my own money, but I do love the product. I think it does make a big difference on my makeup routine, and it does really help the base like it adds like a nice, glowy bronzy effect. It also is 38 dollars and kind of pricey youre willing to invest it does last.
Being a Broke College Student
I am a fan of them, also Im a broke college student who cant really afford to get really high end products. It does offer this really nice, tanned, glow effect and the last step for prepping my face.
ELF Poreless Primer
Im going to go in with the elf primer Ive. Seen a lot about this on Tick Tock, its called the poreless primer, so I heard its supposed to act like a blurred effect. This retails for ten dollars really really good price. I am happy to say that I really like this primer – I would say it is best for the girls who want more of a matte finish to their makeup and I typically go for glowing.
Morphe Hint Hint Skin Tint
The first product I want to talk about is the Morphe Hint Hint Skin Tint. This product has gained quite a bit of popularity on TikTok, so I decided to give it a try. I must say, I’m a big fan of this. It really adds a nice finish to my skin. I haven’t used many skin tints in the past, but this one gives my skin a flawless illusion. I personally like to rub it in with my fingers, as I feel it helps it melt into my skin better. It makes my skin look like my own and not like a layer of makeup. I have some redness on my skin, and this product does a great job of minimizing it. The price is also reasonable, retailing for $18. I haven’t tried any other skin tints to compare, but I can confidently say that I recommend this one. I believe it will last me a long time, and I’m definitely open to trying other options in the future.
Elf Camo Concealer
Moving on to the next product that has taken TikTok by storm, we have the Elf Camo Concealer. This concealer has been seen all over TikTok and is said to be a dupe for the popular Tarte Shape Tape. Retailing at $7, it’s certainly more affordable. I was quite intrigued by all the buzz, so I decided to give it a go. I must say, I’m quite impressed with this concealer. It provides excellent coverage and does a great job of concealing any imperfections. It blends easily and doesn’t crease throughout the day, which is a huge plus. I can see why it has become a TikTok favorite. If you’re looking for an affordable concealer that gets the job done, I highly recommend the Elf Camo Concealer. It’s definitely worth trying out.
Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation
Next up, we have the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation. This foundation has been a staple for many beauty enthusiasts and has also gained popularity on TikTok. It claims to provide a matte finish while minimizing the appearance of pores. I must say, this foundation lives up to its promises. It gives a smooth and flawless finish to my skin, leaving it looking matte without feeling heavy or cakey. It also does a decent job of blurring out my pores. The shade range is quite extensive, making it easier to find a perfect match. Retailing at around $8, it’s definitely a budget-friendly option. If you’re in need of an affordable foundation that delivers on its claims, the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation is worth considering.
NYX Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil
For the brows, I decided to try the NYX Professional Makeup Micro Brow Pencil. Brows are a crucial part of any makeup look, and having the right brow product is essential. This pencil has been recommended to me by TikTok, so I had high hopes. Fortunately, it did not disappoint. The pencil has a fine tip, allowing for precise application and mimicking natural brow hairs. It fills in sparse areas effortlessly and creates a defined shape. The formula is long-lasting and doesn’t smudge throughout the day. Retailing at around
Concealer: A dupe for tarte shape tape
I recently tried the tarte shape tape concealer and ended up loving it. So when I discovered that there was a dupe for it, I was thrilled. The concealer I’m currently using is not only affordable, but it also brightens up my under eyes without looking unnatural. It does a great job of hiding any under eye bags that I may have. I highly recommend it.
Rare Beauty blush: A long-lasting favorite
The next product I want to talk about is the Rare Beauty blush, which retails for around $23. I have been wearing this blush in different shades and I absolutely love it. As you can see, I have already scraped the pan because I have used it so much. Initially, a tiny dot was enough to achieve the desired effect. I love how natural this blush looks on my skin. Considering that it has lasted me for several months, I think the price is worth it.
Elf monochromatic multi stick: An affordable alternative
For those who don’t want to splurge on the Rare Beauty blush, I suggest trying the elf monochromatic multi stick. It only costs $5 and is a great alternative. I have been using it more often recently because I’m running out of the Rare Beauty blush. It gives a similar effect and is definitely worth the price.
Please note that all the products and shades I mentioned in this article will be linked below for your convenience.

The great thing about makeup is that there are options available for every budget. So don’t be afraid to explore both high-end and drugstore products to find your perfect match. Happy experimenting!
The foundation that I used for this look is the Maybelline Fit Me Matte + Poreless foundation. It blends out really nicely on the skin, giving a natural finish. I love how it has a subtle shimmer to it, which adds a touch of radiance. Considering it’s only five dollars, I think it’s definitely a great buy and I highly recommend it.
Moving on to bronzer, I opted for the elf putty bronzer, which retails for seven dollars. While I do like this bronzer, I must admit that it’s not perfect. It does require a bit of effort to blend properly, and the shade can be a bit tricky to work with. However, after some trial and error, I found that it offers a more natural bronze look, which I personally enjoy. Overall, for its price, I think it’s worth giving it a try.
For my brows, I used the Nyx Thickening Brow Mascara in the shade brunette. Although I made a mistake by choosing a shade that was a bit too dark for me, I still appreciate this product. It holds my brows in place all day long, giving them a sleek and polished look. If you’re looking for a brow mascara that delivers on its promises, I definitely recommend giving this one a go.
Now, let’s talk about my favorite product from this entire video – the Thrive Liquid Lash Mascara. This mascara truly exceeded my expectations. It lengthens and volumizes my lashes, giving them a stunning look. The formula is also long-lasting, so I don’t have to worry about any smudging or flaking throughout the day. If you’re in the market for a high-performing mascara, this one is definitely worth the investment.
Review: Favorite Mascara
Let me tell you about my favorite mascara. This wasn’t recommended to me on TikTok, my mom just randomly bought it. She said, “Here, try this.” And so I did, and we’ve been hooked ever since. This mascara has become our go-to choice. The best part about this product is when you take it off or wash off your mascara, it comes off in tubes. It doesn’t smear down your face or make your eyes black. It’s not a pain to remove at all, just a gentle wash with water and it comes off in tubes. I am truly passionate about this mascara and will continue to use it forever. It retails for $25, which might seem expensive, but it lasts a long time and is definitely worth the price.
Results and Obsession
Are you kidding me? Before, my lashes were just curled, but now, they are so much more. I might be tripping, but ever since I started using this mascara, it feels like my lashes have grown. I don’t know if it’s the mascara, but I’d like to believe it is because I’m betting on it. I’m genuinely obsessed with the results. This mascara has completely transformed my lashes.
Honest Review: NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil
Now, let’s talk about the last eye product I’m using in this TikTok viral makeup look. It’s the NYX jumbo eye pencil, and it retails for six dollars. Honestly, I’ve got to say that I’m not the biggest fan. The tip of the pencil is not very precise, and it’s too big for my liking. It makes it difficult to achieve a precise application, as you can see in the video. The size of the pencil even makes it go down to my lower lash line unintentionally.
TikTok Viral Makeup: An Honest Review of High-End & Drugstore Products
Eyebrows: A Little Bit More Precise, Please!
I wish it was just a little bit more precise or there’s like a sharpener or something am I tripping like. Is there like a sharpener or something? I can use on here if there is, let me know because I would love to keep using this. It just looks kind of bad. I would prefer a pencil instead of like a crayon.
Lips: A Decent Alternative
Moving on to the lips, the last step. I’ve seen this a decent amount, obviously not raved about as much as the Dior lip oil. It is the ELF hydrating core lip shine, retailing for about seven dollars. Basically, me and her are besties, love this product, seven dollars. I’ve had this since my senior year of high school, I’m going into my sophomore year of college. I’ve had it for a minute, I’ve had it for literally a minute and she’s still cooking, she’s still gone, and I use it all the time. Keep in mind, purse with me, I take her everywhere with me. I think it is extremely hydrating, like my lips feel hydrated every time I wear this. It’s so comfortable, not sticky at all. I feel like it’s in between lipstick and lip gloss.
The Finished Look: Natural and Affordable
Here is the finished product. I actually like how a lot of these look. They are more natural, and I do recommend a lot of the products. I think you can probably pretty much find a dupe or an alternative for any of the high-end products.
High-End vs. Drugstore: The Quest for Viral TikTok Makeup
Testing Expensive Products on a Tight Budget
When it comes to makeup, there is a wide range of options available in the market. It can be overwhelming, especially if you have a tight budget. But fear not, for I have taken on the challenge of reviewing both high-end and drugstore products for a full face of TikTok viral makeup, providing an honest assessment of their performance.
An Unexpected Christmas Gift
Normally, I would never consider splurging on high-end makeup products, but luck was on my side when I received a travel-size set of expensive makeup as a Christmas gift. It was like a present from the beauty gods, allowing me the opportunity to try out these coveted viral products without breaking the bank. I couldn’t resist the chance to share my experience with you all, so let’s dive into the world of TikTok viral makeup!

When it comes to makeup, sometimes you stumble upon products that exceed your expectations, while others may disappoint. It’s all about experimenting and finding what works best for you.
