Viral Beauty Products That The Internet Loved In 2021 & So Did We


Who isn’t a fan of trending beauty reels? Social media has tons of knowledgeable beauty influencers who go all out with serving up stunning beauty looks and reviewing highly effective skincare products that inspire us to get our beauty games on point. And so, we all can agree that if there’s a beauty product out there that makes you look good on the ’gram and has reel creators across the globe going gaga over it, well, enough said, just take my money! From fluffy foam foundations to temperature transforming liquid lipsticks, here’s a list of the most viral beauty products of 2021.

12 Viral Beauty Products Of 2021 That We Are Adding To Cart

Signal Tips

Neon nails were all the rage this year and the POPxo Makeup Mini Nail Kit in the variant Hustlin’ sold out countless times to get on the trend. With all the trending neon hues you could possibly desire for nails in this kit, it is definitely worth buying. It offers up neon yellow, acid green, hot pink, vibrant purple, and bright orange polishes in chip-resistant, glossy formulas.

The Skin Warrior

A liquid chemical exfoliator that many have claimed “changed their life” is the Paula’s Choice 2% BHA Skin Perfecting Exfoliant Liquid. The product contains salicylic acid and serves as a gentle skin exfoliator to remove dead skin cells and brighten skin. The reason it’s gone viral is that it works on dull and dry skin types to acne-prone skin, and for anyone who wishes to enjoy radiant skin. 

Fluffy Miracle

You may have noticed a really bizarre makeup product on reels. It looks like a cloud of foam that influencers just pump out on their skin and cut to the next frame, it’s flawless looking skin. Well, we dug out the product! It’s the Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Mousse Makeup. Just shake the bottle, pump out this mousse foundation and apply it to your face. The airy texture melts into skin and offers lightweight, moisturising coverage perfect for those of you who are makeup minimalists.

Wonder Purple

Purple blush was huge this year and for good reason. Who would’ve thought that a dark and unconventional hue like purple actually works well as a blush shade? Turns out purple blush looks absolutely wonderful when applied and it is particularly gorgeous on brown skin tones. Since Rihanna’s Fenty cream blushes aren’t available here, we are totally satisfied with the Nudestix Nudies Matte Blush & Bronzer in the shade Moddies Blu which is equally stunning. 

Paper Weight

Makeup papers? What? The trending makeup product that shocked us all was paper makeup i.e. literal papers that contain blush, bronzer, foundation, highlighter, you get the gist. These makeup papers also double as blotting papers and therefore are perfect for touch-ups and are highly travel friendly. We are in love with the Blush Papers by Dromen & Co to take away shine and touch up your blush in one dab.

Goddess Glow

Body highlighting is in the spotlight this year, and the MyGlamm Manish Malhotra Face & Body Highlighter served as the perfect medium to get that glow from head to toe. Available in three shades, this product checks all the right boxes in terms of highlighting and bronzing the body.

Spiral Deal

The brushes influencers are using to enhance their curls isn’t just any ordinary brush. It is the Denman Classic Styling Brush that has seven vertical rows of wide space bristles on a curved body to help wet brush and twist your curls into form. 

The Oil-Proof Base

If you hate how your face gets shiny after you just applied foundation a few minutes ago, then the Kat Von D Lock-It Tattoo Foundation is going to steal your heart. It offers a complete matte finish and does not transfer on your face mask or handkerchief at all. The reason it is such a viral sensation is that oily skin influencers tried it on and they were amazed how it stayed in place and looked as shine-free as when they put it on even after six to seven hours. Warning: it’s not for dry skin.

Temperature Test

The Ciate London x Christine Quinn Ca$h Fetish Heat Transforming Lip Cream is the hottest new lippies on the block. The viral reel trend on this product shows you how gorgeously the lipstick applies and then the two colour transformations it has on contact with a hot cup of coffee and an ice globe. The colour changes to a darker hue on contact with cold and cooler and brighter when in contact with heat. Just the kind of sorcery we need. 

Roll Up

The Revlon Oil-Absorbing Volcanic Face Roller made all oily skin beauties across the globe squeal with excitement. Made with a built-in volcanic rock, this is an oil blotter in a roller format. The reaction videos to this tool are insane. It shows how you just have to roll the product on your face and it takes out the oil without disturbing your makeup at all. So, if your makeup base gets shiny after a while, simply roll this on and you’re good. It also works as a face massager. This tool is a reusable product that will last you a lifetime.

Powder Principle

For those of you who love powder foundations, the L’Oreal Infallible 24H Fresh Wear, Foundation In A Powder is for you. It offers medium to high coverage and can be used wet and dry. When used dry it covers up dark spots quite easily, and when the sponge is dampened and the product is then applied, the coverage builds to a cream-like consistency. Just wow!

Double Play

The MyGlamm Two Of A Kind Nail Enamel Sets serves up two nail polishes in monochromatic shades so that you have two products to dress your nails in. The colour combos work perfectly well together when trying out nail art designs and can even be singled out and worn for a uniform nail look.

We wonder if you stuck through this entire list without opening a second window to add these products to your cart.
