What do the Aerie leggings, Ronxs candle lighter and Revlon one-step hair dryer have in common? They’ve become some of TikTok’s trendiest products. You can’t scroll through the platform without seeing the #TikTokMadeMeBuyIt hashtag and I’ve been influenced many times to add every buzzy thing I see into my shopping cart.
During a normal day of scrolling through (as one does), I noticed that my FYP only had eyes for the KVD Beauty Good Apple Skin-Perfecting Foundation Balm. My first thought was, “Is it really that great of a foundation?” But with every infamous swipe of the product across a cheek—and the reaction that followed—I was more and more convinced that I had to try it for myself.
Upon first look, the packaging reminded me of a bronzer or a highlighter. It seemed like there was so little product (versus the full bottles I’m used to), but if the amount of coverage you could get from just one swipe was actually true, it could all make sense.
