College Beauty Awards: TikTok Faves

TikTok is the ultimate source for trending Gen Z beauty recommendations. The only problem? With oversaturated For You Pages and ads, it’s tough to know which items are actually worth the hype. The Her Campus College Beauty Awards testers sampled viral beauty products from a range of popular brands to figure out what’s actually worth the investment. As a result, meet the CBA TikTok faves, comprised of the top eight best viral beauty products of 2022. 

This range of favorites covers all the bases from scent to makeup to skin care, even down to beauty appliances. The CBA testers unanimously agree that the following products deserve the online attention they are garnering. The CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser actually deep cleans your skin, the Peter Thomas Roth Instant FirmX Eye Temporary Eye Tightener actually masks the look of fine lines and under eye bags, and the Glossier You Perfume actually smells as good as everyone says it does. 

Try these top eight TikTok beauty products of 2022, and just be sure to tag us in your TikTok haul.

Peter Thomas Roth Instant FirmX Eye Temporary Eye Tightener

Starting off strong, the Peter Thomas Roth Instant FirmX Eye Temporary Eye Tightener is definitely worth the online hype. Eboni, Kyra, and Dorilyn are shocked by how effectively a pea-sized amount of this product tightens their undereyes and masks the look of fine lines or bags. $38.

CeraVe Renewing SA (Salicylic Acid) Cleanser

The perfect daily cleanser, the CeraVe Renewing SA Cleanser is gentle yet cleans deeply. This formula is great for sensitive skin and will leave your face feeling soft and nourished. $11.

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey

The Clinique Almost Lipstick in the Black Honey shade had its TikTok moment, and for good reason. The moisturizing, lightweight product applies like a balm but looks like an elevated lipstick. Its color is buildable and flattering on all skin tones. Eboni says this was one of her favorite products she tested! $22.

Charlotte Tillbury Hollywood Flawless Filter

The CBA testers confirm the Charlotte Tillbury Hollywood Flawless Filter lives up to expectations. Julianna, Eboni, and Kyra love the healthy glow it gives their complexions. This product perfectly layers under foundation or can be worn alone for a luminous dew. $60.

Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patch Original

The Hero Cosmetics Mighty Patches effectively target pimples and look virtually invisible as they get the job done. This budget-friendly TikTok favorite is definitely worth adding to your skin care routine. $13.

Facetory Skin care Mini Fridge

The beauty product you didn’t know you needed until right now, this Facetory Skin Care Mini Fridge is a game-changer. Elevate your entire skin care routine by cooling products in this convenient fridge before use. We recommend using the Facetory fridge for sheet masks, facial gels, and even tools like jade rollers. Bonus points: It comes in three adorable colors to match your space. $120.

Tower 28 Shine On Lip Jelly

The CBA testers love the Tower 28 Shine On Lip Jelly for its moisturizing feel and pigmented color payoff. Dorilyn, Julianna, and Maeve praise this formula’s long-lasting staying power and nourishing feel, which isn’t sticky like most glosses. $25.

Glossier You Perfume

The Glossier You Perfume deserves its internet fame! The formula interacts with your natural body chemistry to find the perfect scent for you, hence the name. Dorilyn describes this perfume as a fresh, creamy, comforting scent. Zoë says she always get compliments when wearing it. $94.
