Unusual Makeup Products Highlight New Trends

Videos about people trying strange and unusual beauty products can be found all around the internet. People love new, freaky products and are willing to spend a considerable amount of money to try them. A few of them may make you wonder, “How did someone come up with this and why did they make it?” Although most are gags, some work surprisingly well and may become a part of some people’s daily routine.


Black Highlighter


Jeffree Star, a Youtube personality, singer, and makeup artist, released a black highlighter by the name of ONYX for his company Jeffree Star Cosmetics late in 2016. Many were skeptical but were willing to try it for curiosity’s sake. Some were hopeful, but many soon found that it just applied a dark streak to the skin and looked overall atrocious.




The beauty blender has been around for many years and is a staple product for most people. A new sponge, known as the Silisponge, was recently trending. It is a silicon makeup applicator that is said to waste as little product as possible. This fact alone drove many to try it and give feedback to potential buyers. Since this product is out of stock so often, some have gone as far as to rip the insert of a bra out and use it as a dupe. Although many have been sold, most still prefer a normal beauty blender to the silicon one.

Makeup Tattoos


For those who like makeup but are not exactly the best at applying it, stick-on makeup seems like a good option. Many people have attempted to use tattoos for eyebrows, lipsticks, eye shadows, and much more. Although these seem like a good idea, they are not the easiest to apply, and a lot of the time they come out distorted and wrong. Unless you are confident about your ability to apply tattoos to your face, this product may not be for you.


Magnetic face mask


Face masks are very popular among makeup lovers. They are great for moisturizing and rejuvenating the skin. The magnetic face mask is a liquid mask that is left to dry and is removed with a magnet covered by a cloth to collect the product. The sensation is strange, but the mask makes the skin smooth and soft to the touch. If you are willing to spend the money, this product is a great experience.
