TESTING VIRAL TIKTOK MAKEUP + SKINCARE…not good hun 💜🖤 The Welsh Twins
J: Hi, everyone, I’m James Welsh. R: And I’m Robert Welsh. J: And this is your weekly reminder that we are not the same person. I’m not that, and not whatever that is. R: I have allorr-gies. J: Yeah, okay.
R: [Unintelligible] J: What? Okay, ready? R: Yeah, I’m always ready. J: Three, two, one. Okay, ready? R: Yeah, I’m always, yeah. J: Okay, cool. R: Let’s do this. J: Alright, come on. [Super unenthusiastic clap] R: Is the lighting okay? J: I look really pale compared to you.
I look like pale, red, and splotchy. R: That’s because I’m wearing Makeup. J: Oh yeah true. True, true, true, true, true. J: So listen, to what we’re doing today. R: I will. J: Yeah. You already know but today, you know, we like 5-minute crafts.
.. Well, we don’t like them, but we enjoy testing them. R: We like Jackie. J: We like Jackie… well, give or take, Jackie. R: I like Jackie. J: I wouldn’t invite her out on a night out. R: Well… J: I mean, if she heard me inviting people, I would invite her out and be like, oh, did you, did you want to.
.. R: You’d invite her and she’d be like, no I’m fine. J: Yeah. And I’d be like this while I was inviting her, so she’d say, no. R: Yeah. Did you want too… J: Did you want to come out, for drinks? TikTok.
R: Yes. J: We are both on it. R: We are on TikTok. J: We’re trying to do it. But there’s so many products that go vi-er-eral on TikTok, and you and me have both said in our own channels, that we feel like TikTok is a place where people often over exaggerate the effects of products.
.. R: They do. J: …like the, you know, like, oh my God, this product’s amazing. Look at this new thing that been around for Centuries. R: Here’s the thing with TikTok, everyone’s trying to make that one thing that goes viral.
So they’re like, if you do this, then watch this. And it’s like, why are you doing that basic as f*ck? J: Why are you shouting at me? R: Whoops. J: Is it dog hair? R: It’s a hair. And then there’s… have you seen this product? Like with the Kat Von D foundation, everyone was putting it on going.
.. [Gasps of disbelief] …and it’s like, have you never used foundation in your f*cking life? Get out. J: Get out. I know. Within skincare as well, there’s a lot of things, like a lot of misinformation, like peeling gels, like, oh my God, my skin’s coming off, and it’s like we have told you over and over again, it’s not your skin.
And it just seems to be this overhyping of products. But, today our assistant has got us some of the most viral, or just things that she’s come across on TikTok to test out and see if they’re really worth any hype at all, whatsoever.
R: And Jackie helped. J: I mean, she was there. [She wasn’t there] J: Yeah, she had her blue eye shadow… R: And red eyebrows. J: Yeah. R: Aww, Jackie. J: Jackie. With her underwear that’s turned into a boob-tube.
R: Yeah! J: Oh, Jackie. R: Jackie. J: So, should we? R: Yeah! Should we just talk about our merc-con-dise? T-shirts, hoodies, erm… J: Face mask. R: Face mask. J: Another hoody. R: A zip through hoody.
J: Yeah. R: Could be yours. J: Could be yours. Check the merchandise carousel down below. We also have a website, but I think you just get redirected to it anyway. R: Just click on the carousel. J: Click on the carousel if you want something, you don’t have to though.
R: No, oh no. J: You can just get a plain white T-shirt and draw this on with a Sharpie and we’ll be happy. R: We will sue you though. [Joking but not joking laughter] J: Sell our sh*t on Etsy and we’ll come for you.
R: Start making fake merchandise on RedBubble. J: Oh my God. R: This is the only place, the thing below is the only place you can buy our merchandise. Nowhere else. J: We do not sell on RedBubble whatsoever.
R: No. Or anywhere else other than down below. Tea Spring, right? J: Tea Spring, yeah. Okay. Three, two, one, now. J: Oh! R: What? J: I love these. R: Why did you just scream at me. “Testing this Korean exfoliating towel, that TikTok made me buy.
” R: I had one of these. “I tell you, I started rubbing and instantly skin started peeling off…” R: Wow. “My God, I felt like a shedding reptile. I could make a mini me from the amount of skin that came off but oh my God look how smooth!” J: So smooth.
So I love those. I never quite got that peeling because I exfoliate anyway. But they’re, they’re very good. If you do, if you got all that like chicken… Look, I’ve got chicken-y skin on the back of my arms.
I need to get them again. I’ll just keep these ones. Is that okay? R: I would peel like that, for sure. J: Should we do the back of our arms? R: I’m wearing, I’m wearing long sleeves. J: Robert has a shirt with diamonte flames.
R: Maybe you do this one. J: Okay, I’ll do this one. R: I didn’t… J: Show them your diamonte flames. R: …I didn’t lie last week. J: Thank you. R: I’ll do my hand or something. A: There’s two, who wants the pink one? J: Pink please.
R: Oh good, okay. J: Thank you. R: ARGH! J: Okay, so, we ripped open the packaging. These do kind of like shrink up when you’re not using them. R: Roiyht. J: I don’t know if they’re inside out and we have to turn them the right way though? Get the video back up and see if she had the label inside, or outside.
R: It does look really effective, right? J: It does, and I know these are like a thing, they’re like a thing. R: Oh, awesome. I’m going to do my hand, cause I feel like… J: So look, this is, this is a spot.
J: Oh, nice cold water. R: It was probably warm, but we took forever to set up. J: Yeah, true. They smell like egg and cress. Well, just cress actually. R: Oh it does! J: Like cress potatoes. R: How curious.
J: Remember when we used to grow cress out of an egg? R: Yeah. R: I want my skin to peel like it does in that… J: Me too. R: Oh, it really does… is it, it is cressy. It smells like urrrrb. J: Smells like h’urrrbs.
R: Oh no that’s my hairs getting all caught up. J: I mean, there’s like little like bits but I don’t think, I think it’s just like maybe fluff or dust. R: To be fair, I did exfoliate this morning in the shower.
J: I exfoliate every day in the shower. R: Either way, these are really, really nice. J: They’re just nice. They’re just nicely like, they feel really… R: They do enurrrf smell James. J: Smells liked schoo-el.
R: Schoo-h’wel J: I mean, I like these regard… No, irregardless. No, regardless. R: Pacific. J: Pacifically like these, irregardlessly. I mean, maybe after a long day and, you know, it’s the morning, h’yere, and we’ve just showered and, but I really, really, really like these anyway.
R: How do you find these? Amazon? J: Yeah, they’re on Amazon. R: Just on Amazon. J: We’ll link them… no, we won’t let them down, I can’t be bothered to link them down below. R: We’re not doing that.
A: I will. J: Yeah, you link them down below. R: Thanks, Jackie. J: All products will be linked down below in the description box. R: Check them down, check them down. J: No, it’s the Neogen… R: Stop spoiling it.
“I saw this on TikTok forever ago, and it’s finally back in stock. I had to get it. I have super big pores so dirt always gets into them. This mousse is supposed to help get all the gunk and dirt out and tighten your pores.
I was literally shocked by what was coming out already.” R: What? “I had barely even applied it and eww, look at that. You just rub the product in until it’s gone. And holy hell, look at all that crap.
” R: What is this? “You just want to wash and pat your face and you’re done. My skin is already looking so much brighter, smoother, and all the gunk is gone.” J: Let me show you something. ‘Definitely give them a 10/10.
” R: She had sh*t all over her hands. What happened? J: No, no, no, no, no. R: It worked for her. I believe it! No. Oh, my hands are really smooth. J: Did you see the black stuff coming off? R: I, I saw black things coming off, allegedly, in my opinion.
J: So this is what I was talking about. This is what is usually called a peeling gel, both in Japan and Korea. Most of Asia have them, and then there slowly making their way over here. R: Huda Beauty does her thingy one.
.. J: Wishful… Huda Beauty’s Wishful. I’m just going to say it, is a line of copying Asian skincare that’s been around for ages, and she’s like trying to sell it, like she invented the whole thing. R: She’s like.
.. J: Every product is… Yeah, is like just a rehash of a product that’s already been, you know, in Asia anyway. So, this is a peeling gel, and what it does is it contains an ingredient, ingredient called Carbomer.
And what that does is it attaches on to the oils and dirt on your skin and creates these little balls that people are then being like, oh my God, this is dead skin, but it’s not. So what then happens is those little balls then gently exfoliate your skin.
And sometimes they’re formulated with things like Lactic Acid, Salicylic Acid, like exfoliating acids to then give you a little bit more of an exfoliation. However, that is not dead skin. In this particular product, it’s got charcoal in it.
And they don’t say this as a brand themself, Neogen don’t say as a brand themself, but people are like, the charcoal is bringing stuff out of your pores. That’s not how charcoal works. Charcoal kind of works more like Sellotape.
R: People act like charcoal’s a magnet. J: Yeah. Which it’s not, it’s more like cellophane. So it has to attach, actually touch… R: 🎵Cellophane, Mister… R&J: Cellophane. 🎵 R: What’s that from? J: I don’t know.
Did we make that up? R: Chicago? J: Maybe, I don’t know. So it actually has to touch what it’s going to remove, right. It’s not a magnet at all. It’s like clay, you know, it absorbs. R: Roiyht. J: Right.
So this isn’t dead skin. It’s a, it’s a good exfoliating product, peeling gels are good at exfoliating, but it’s very, very gentle. R: Well, aha! Let’s do it. J: So, here it is. We have it here. We’re just going to do a bit on our hand because as I said, we’re just, we just going to try a little bit on our hands because it’s very drying.
I personally don’t like this particular product on my skin. R: And I’ve exfoliated every, I’m not… [Foam noises] J: Foam. [More foam noises] R: It’s more of a, I would say it’s more of a crackle mousse.
Okay, so I can already feel it. J: So that’s the, so you can already see before we’ve even done anything, you’re getting those like Carbomer bits along with the charcoal, making them dark. R: Yeah, I don’t know if you can see.
.. Do you want me to do it on my hand here? J: Yeah. There’s also this thing that a lot of people do, which is called the rubber glove test. And this is where you just do this on a rubber glove so no skin, and you still get those balls.
R: Shut ya mouth! J: It’s just attaching to whatever, excess-ness is on the skin. I find this particular product a little bit drying, I think, because of the mousse-y kind of like… R: Ma-ousse. J: Ma-ousse.
Smells really bad. R: Oh, yeah. But I mean, I didn’t rub hard… Oh, focus, focus, focus. There you go. R: That’s poo. J: That’s the poo from your fingers. R: Yeah. Yeah that’s definitely, I mean, that’s definitely not dead skin.
J: So that’s it basically, they’re a good product but it’s not dead skin. I think everyone’s like, oh my God, it’s peeling my dead skin. It’s not! R: Here’s the thing with TikTok, for some reason because the younger generation are using it, everyone’s finding out information first on TikTok, and it’s like if you just Google stuff, you’ll find out that it’s not.
.. J: Not. Remember Google? R: Listen to our podcast, the latest episode we talk about this. J: Do we? R: Marcus, here. J: Do we talk about that? R: Yeah, we talk about how, how, about crediting people, and.
.. J: Oh yeah, we do. R: How could you forget. J: Go ahead and listen. R: It was my favorite episode. J: T’wasn’t mine. J: Right, let’s look at the next one. R: Yes. “Trying out the Viral Powder Foundation from L’Oreal.
One swipe…” R: Laurel. “…and it covered everything. Should we talk about the color coverage is insane. Look at the difference, wow. Are you kidding me? This is soo good. Wowsie. I’m kinda in love with this.
” R: She’s so beautiful. J: Yeah, Stunning. R: Yeah, she does a lot of the makeups on TikTok. Here’s the thing with powder foundation, yeah, if you use a sponge like that, it’s going to give you full coverage anyway, no matter what.
Even a normal powder is going to do that. How it looks on the skin would be, would be a good test. R: Lore-ral J: Lore-al, dream matte mousse. What was it? R: Infallible? J: Infallible Lor-all. R: Lore-all! “Weak, limp, lifeless.
I’ve found an answer to a higher price…” J: Lore-all Dream Matt Mousse. “…It’s got its mojo back. New Elvie fully restore 5 from…” J: Laurel! R: I’ve been wanting to try this. J: I think this middle one, no? God I need to eat, remind me to eat later.
R: Marcus, cut this out because I don’t want people to know I have wipes on my desk. J: Marcus, don’t cut this out. Everyone knows you have wipes. What are you… what are you trying to hide? So there’s a mirror one side, and then there’s.
.. what? And then there’s the powder, the other side. Why are you laughing at that? R: Sorry. J: What? I didn’t get it. Why? R: I mean, they just come with mirrors. J: Yeah, but it’s, but it’s usually not like this.
R: So I’ve taken one side of my face off. J: It’s all gone. R: The whole face is gone. J: I’m not wearing makeup. I’ve got a bit of blotting powder on. Okay, so L’Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Freshwear Foundation in a powder.
R: Oh, there’s a mirror in here. All right, Laurel. Let’s go Laurel. See, okay, so here’s my issue first up. Don’t do anything yet. When you apply the sponge that much to get that much… I thought…
J: You f*cking… R: I swear I put my thing on silent. You saw me, you saw me put it on silent. J: That’s not even an email, that’s update available. R: No, that’s been on the screen all day. J: Do you need to have email notifications on in general? R: Yes! R: So when you rub it, to get that kind of coverage, you need to really push it into, into the thing, and it kind of crumbles away, which means you kind of like.
.. look, it’s everywhere. It’s all on my phone screen. J: It’s all on my, it’s all on my exclusive merch. R: It’s all on my phone screen. J: Yeah. R: But we’re going to get a good coverage. J: Can I do it now? R: Yeah, let’s do it.
Laurel. J: Wow, I can see every pore. R: It’s not that, it’s actually not that much coverage. J: This is horrible. I mean, you can see on my nose actually. R: I mean, just the way it crumbles when you do that, people need to stop over exaggerate guys.
Just, just be honest. If you don’t like, if the foundation just acts like a normal powder… J: Was that an advert? R: No. A: It was. R&J: Oh, it was? Oh it was? A: It was. R&J: Oh!! R: So that was..
. J: That was an advert. R: And you know, this happened a lot with KVD, the foundation. There were adverts. People are paying for their product to go viral, so people think it’s good. J: Well, this is the thing when you look on TikTok, and this isn’t, you know, accusing the creator of doing anything.
R: No, no, no. J: And obviously not saying she was lying. It looked very good on her skin. A lot of people are saying the products going viral when they’re not. R: Yeah, yeah. Viral… I know. J: That looks horrible.
R: Looks awful. J: Oh my God, it looks like you’re dead and you’ve had a mortician do your makeup. R: Color’s kind of nice. Yeah, it is very like 80’s. Let me just try, I just want to… J: Like I can see every single pore on my nose.
R: Heres… I’m so, you know what, these f*cking foundations acting like they’re amazing, and people acting like their the best thing is really starting to piss me off. And here’s the deal, to get this full coverage, like you can still see.
.. J: I don’t like that. R: Rosiness on my cheek here, I’m going to have to have a really, really… J: Eugh! R: Isn’t it horrible. J: I hate that. R: Here’s the deal, right, If you want to see good reviews, just go to YouTube or like Insta.
.. not even a Reel, because like 60 seconds isn’t enough to really look at a foundation. This stinks. R: It’s got like a fragrance to it, like a rosy… J: It’s got a very traditional female 1920’s rose smell to it.
R: Well, that’s one… look how flat my face looks as well. J: This is worse than Dream Matt Mousse. R: This is worse than Dream… Laurel! You need to stop Hunnn! Although… there, what’s the, what’s the liquid foundation they do? J: Erm, Dream Laurel, Dream Matt.
.. R: No… J: …Liquid Foundation. R: No. J: I can’t look at that, it’s actually making me feel a bit queasy. R: It’s horrible, isn’t it? J: Can you wipe it off? R: No, but I’ll, I’ll hydrate it. 🎵 Mister Cellophane.
J: Phane. 🎵 R: True Match, that’s it! L’Oreal True Match, It’s a good liquid foundation. As well like, good color match… …brand, if they’re paying to advertise isn’t going to send you the wrong color are they? Anyway.
Okay, let’s move on. Listen, just don’t, just go, when you’re doing research go further than TikTok… J: 15 seconds TikTok reviews. R: 60 second TikTok foundation reviews. It’s not enough time and they’re all sh*t.
R: There hasn’t been one that’s gone like viral, that I liked. J: Yeah, worth the viral-ness. R: Right. God it f*cking stinks. J: Oh, I love her! R: I love her too. And I actually have one of these. “So this is my new favorite liquid lipstick.
It’s the NYX Cosmetic Shine Loud Liquid Lipstick. And let me just literally show you it in action.” R: Like butterrrr. That’s really nice. “Let it dry for 90 seconds. And then when it’s dry you add your topcoat shine.
” “And then… here’s the test. No transfer of color.” R: Yeah! J: She’s just so dewy. R: Yeah. These, these products, I remember when I first started working for MAC, years ago, they had… I don’t work for them anymore.
They had these. It was a color side and like a gloss the other side. So it’s an old concept but this is, it looks a little bit newer in terms of, the textures were horrible back then. So hopefully this is a little.
.. I can smell my face, it f*cking stinks. J: Me too. R: So hopefully these are a lot more nicer. I haven’t tried it, I did buy… It stinks, can you smell it? J: Yeah. And it’s just, it’s horrible to look at.
It looks like old 80’s makeup. Or like you’re a Wax Work and they’ve put some like… sh*t watercolour on you. R: Yeah. I agree. Like the mortician… I feel like, it’s like I died and someone’s been like erm.
.. J: Like, does anyone have any Laurel? R: Anyone got any Laurel in their purse? Okay, let’s try the lips. J: Okay, I’m excited for this. R: Yeah me too. Aww, I’m so excited! You wanna try that one? J: Yeah.
R: Alright. R: What shade have you got? J: I have Shine Loud, Trophy Life. J: You get so much on one. R: Yeah, that’s cause it’s got that little dip in the wand, it like holds the product. J: What’s that called? R: I just call it dip.
Isn’t it called doe-foot? J: It’s a doe-foot applicator. You know what, this is comfortable. R: It doesn’t feel like there’s anything on my lips. J: No. That’s a nice color. R: It is nice, isn’t it? J: Yeah.
You know, you look like Toni Braxton. [‘Un-Break My Heart’ but not sung well] J: You know I got copyright striked once for humming a song. R: Did you? J: Yeah. And I couldn’t work out forever what it was.
R: I would let Toni Braxton copyright me. J: Oh I would. I’d be like, here, have some royalties. R: Yeah, I think it’s getting a bit sticky, so maybe you should just let it dry. R: That’s a nice color on you Jess.
Ja-ess. [Straw Sucking Noise] R: Quick, do that… I don’t know how you do that. J: Hmmm. God, we’re really concentrating. I’m actually have to, having to go back in for a second dip. R: That’s all right.
It’s probably trying to focus on my face. J: Yeah it’s like what color is his face? R: Get out of camera. R: And me. Oh it’s really, it’s really comfortable. J: It feels hydrating even though it’s not.
It feels like just a lip palsum. R: And it’s NYX, so it’s drugstore. Yeah, I like this. J: Is it dry enough to do the test? R: Well, I don’t think… she was showing that the colour wasn’t coming off not the glass.
I think the glass is going to transfer a little bit. J: Right, so did she do the test and then do the glass? R: No, I think gloss is going to, she’s just showing that the color underneath isn’t coming off.
J: Oh, okay. [Internal Screaming] J: What? Oh, so there’s gloss on it. R: Yeah, but it’s still glossy. I like this a lot. J: I like this too. It’s very nice. R: Yeah, I do like that. R: Finally a TikTok with no false claims.
J: Listen, I think she’s a very reliable person, that particular user, for her reviews. When I first saw her, she was reviewing one of my favorite skincare brands. R: What was that? J: Glow Recipe. I think I saw her because she did like this glowy routine where she used the Niacinamide Dew Drops.
And the thingy. I think her reviews are very good. I wonder if she’s reviewed Laurel? R: Okay, so let’s take this off… J: And see how… R: Yeah. Here, let’s do an experiment. J: Oh some Mi-cells. R: Use some.
.. Mi-cells, and I’m going to use an oil base. J: Okay. Do you have pads? R: Yeah. J: Oh, look at those cotton rounds. Thank you. R: Thank you. My skin looked so nice before putting that powder on. J: It wasn’t your skin, it was makeup.
[James Throwing Shade] R: Yeah. But you, you don’t be like, oh my God, my makeup skin looks so nice, do you? You say your skin looks nice. J: No, you are, that’s true. R: Thanks, Laurel. J: It’s not coming off easily.
R: For a long-lasting like lip product I think people think it has to be really vibrant and really out there. But it’s nice to have some nudes, that are like long-lasting, you know. J: Yeah, of course.
R: You could definitely eat a whole m’heal. J: Yeah, you actually could J: It’s taking a bit of scrubbing, a bit of effort but I don’t think that’s a bad thing, is it, when it comes to this? R: Laurel.
Laurel. J: Laurel. Okay. My lips look a bit bothered. R: Don’t you f*cking, you f*cking wait. [Nervous Voice] J: Wait, why are you lips going silver? R: Cause I’m beautiful. “Okay, so I just got back from Ulta, and one thing caught my eye, this isn’t like a haul.
Maybe it is but one thing caught my eye Just wait. So you know how freshman year we used to always wear like the Too Faced Lip Injections lipgloss thing, right.” J: Like Lip Venom? “They came out with a maximum plump one.
like maximum like, like big. So I’m going to try it. Okay, I didn’t buy pink, so I’m really confused. Let’s just see what happens. It comes with a warning.” R: Oh no! “Yay.” “It smells like freshman year already, erm.
..” R: Oh, she said freshman year. “I’m just going to put it on. Look at my lips now…” R: That’s not much, that’s fine. “…just look at them and I’ll come back. So I just put it on like two seconds ago, and it’s already burning, So I’m going to come back in like ten minutes.
” “Erm yeah.” J: [Gasps] “Think it worked.” J: Nooo! R: Wow. J: She looks like she had lip injections in the top one. R: She did not have lip injections. J: It looked like, it look it had come up a little bit, like this.
R: Don’t be foolish. Here’s, here’s the deal right… J: I’m ready for this. R: …these are well known. I did, I used a Primark one, because I did a Primark haul, and like a ‘full face of’, and oh my God, it was so painful.
And listen, I’ve used lip plumpers before. I know they sting, I know they’re meant to plump, It’s a bit tingly, It’s a little bit funny. You used to do it in school, when it’ll be funny and everyone would laugh, to see who lasts the longest.
But this one was painful, like excruciating. It was like somebody’s got a match or a lighter and was just burning my lip So, let’s see how this one is. Yeah. It was, it was the most pain… J: I’m excited, I want to do this.
R: Okay, go ahead. J: It smells, it smells like erm… R: Face me a little bit. J: …freshman year. They smell like jelly, it smells like strawberry jelly. R: Oh, it’s got really nice like shimmer to it.
Look at the camera quick, so we can get the before. Thin, horrible lips. Thin, dying lips. J: Irritated, inflamed. R: Painful, probably cut. I used once, I used one once from Laurel! That was really cheap and I got a scar on my lip.
J: No! R: Yeah. And it shouldn’t do that like it isn’t like a penetrating, do you know… well I don’t know how they do it, it’s awful. Well, I do but you know. How do you feel? One, two, three. J: Fine.
R: Okay. Should we try another one, and you can keep this on your lip for now, and we’ll come back to it? We’ll circle round. Marcus, maybe do a circle here so people know. J: Understand the concept of.
.. R: Circ… round… J: Circles. R: Roundness. J: It’s feeling a little bit tingley now, but… R: Yeah, I mean, that’s life. Life, oh life. J: Oh Iife. R: What am I doing? Why did I just check my emails.
J: Went into your emails. R: Let me just check me out. Okay. J: Do you have a mini washing machine? A: Yeah. [Squeals of Excitment] J: Oh my God. R: Let’s see. So these, I see some of these online, and some look really sh*t but this one looks like quite good.
J: I’m so excited cause there’s stickers. R: Really cute. So I guess we plug that into our mains. Okay yeah, I’ve seen these a lot. Now here’s my thing with washing beauty sponges, or Beauty Blenders, is I feel you have to really work them to get all the.
.. J: Squeeze them. R: …stuff off? Fuff? J: That’s fuffy. R: That’s not what fuff means. Oh, Jackie. [Washing Machine Noise] R: 🎵Un-break my… J: Heart! 🎵 R: Okay, here’s what we’ll do, pour the water in here first.
J: Have you just got like, something we could pour, just in case? R: Pour a little bit in. J: But what if it comes out now? R: We’ll just get more water. No, I think it’s all right. Oh, look, oh, no, no, it’s cool, it’s cool.
J: Ohhhh! R: That, so that… so okay, so it does come out but you can clip that on the side there. J: Perfect. R: All right, all right. So I’m going to put in my Beauty Blender, or do you want to put the detergent.
.. J: We’ll put the detergent in first. R: Here’s my idea James, snip the corner off that, because we don’t need all of that, and then put the rest… J: That’s going to go everywhere. R: No, do it in there, and we can.
.. J: Do you have scissors? R: Yeah, in that coffin. J: My lips are feeling a bit tingly, but… R: Oh, they look really sore. J: That’s the thing, they just look like I’ve been scrubbing. R: Yeah. J: Am I putting the whole capsule in? R: No, I just didn’t want it to go spewy.
J: Okay, cool. R: Hold it up for the viewers. So we have some, I can’t really push it down but we’ve put some in. R: Mmm. J: Mm hmm. R: Mmm. Okay, so we’re going to give you e’clusive footage. J: Look how messy this desk is.
R: I know, it’s awful isn’t it. R: Oh, Marcus, cut that because of my fingernail. Okay, so turn it on. Right, right. J: I expected the actual beauty blender to spin around. R: Let’s, let’s re-situate because I feel like, cause of course, when Beauty Blenders get wet they grow.
Maybe, let’s see how well this does first. Maybe we need more water. R: It’s trying, J: It’s really trying… my patience. R: Tehehehe. J: Ah-ha-ha. R: Okay, let’s erm… R: I personally wouldn’t be impressed.
J: That’s not very impressive, I must say. R: Let’s put some Laurel on it. J: Yeah. J: Do the yellow one. R: Forehead, forehead. R: I could do… wipe it on my forehead, take this sh*t off my face. J: Just check in with my lips real quick.
Nothing. It’s not stinging, it’s not burning. R: Does it hurt? J: No. R: Put some more on. R: No, you need to… I think you need to do more than that. J: You know what it has done, it’s given me a very red outline to my lips.
R: I love how this is like leaking from the battery section. R&J: ARGH! J: Are we going to die if you turn that on? R: Yes. J: Okay. J: Cool, cool, cool. R: Okay, leave it for a piece. Okay, let me go back to here.
Laurel. Okay, I’m dropping it in. J: Oh sh*t [Dropping stuff on the desk] R&J: Awww. R: Good luck. J: Good luck everyone. J: Oh!! That’s better. R: Yeah. R: Don’t you just love iPhone cameras and how shit they are.
J: This is starting to sting a little bit now. R: Good, that’s what we want. R: No, I still wouldn’t be very happy with that. It’s still a bit dirty. Smells good. [Sniff] J: Yes. R: I would wash my brushes in this though.
Because, have you seen those ones where you stick the brush in the thing and it spins it round? J: Oh yeah. R: They, listen, if you have expensive brushes, don’t, don’t do it, cause they can make your brushes spread like this, and ruin them really badly.
Even if you squeeze them like, you know. J: Sure. But I would put my brushes in this because it’s more like a cyclone. J: But more shallow water, right? And kind of… R: Yeah, sure. J: I mean, it’s cute.
I mean, I like it for… what’s… R&J: [Scared Gasps] J: I like it for novelty purposes. R: Yeah, yeah. It’s cute. It’s really cute. J: Yeah, cute. J: Update on lips. Still nothing. It has given me a very red outline to my lips.
R: You know what though, they do look really smooth. Yeah. I think, I think it’s done something, I think because we’ve been watching it, it doesn’t look… I mean, they don’t look like aggressively plump but they do look.
.. like… J: We have the same, we have the same lips. R: Wait, put some, put some of that on. Put some of this on. Quick. And then put on… cause then it might… J: Why are we quicking? R: I don’t know.
Wait, look at me, look at me, look at me. Just get rid of those red edges. J: But I like red edges. R: No, looks like you’ve been eating Ragu. J: But I like Ragu. R: Like Rag-ooool Does it feel it… it looks smoother.
It does. J: It feels… yeah. R: Oh, James, you look like Lady Whistledown. I think they do look… like the tiny… not, not like not like, you know, life change. But I do think they look a tiny bit bigger.
But I think it might also depend how big your lips are anyway. Do you know what I mean? Like if they’re smaller, maybe it does plump them up a lot more dramatically. J: Put your lips in. R: Hey, guys, I discovered this new viral lipgloss.
That’s what they do, like this. J: Yeah, they go like this. R: Sad, lonely, lips. J: That should be the thumbnail. R: Yeah. J: Okay. R: Yeah. J: Right, listen R: You’re so much more confident now you’ve got that lip.
J: I feel like I’m really in charge of myself. Erm, favorite? R: Limp-stimp J: The NYX one? R: The NYX, yeah, this. J: Yeah, I agree with that. Least favorite? Laurel? R: This, this sh*t. I’m sorry, can we all just stop pretending we like things.
Step pretending you like things. Why not do just a normal review? No, this isn’t to the girl, maybe she did really like it but that is a shit powder. And I feel like anyone reviewing it on YouTube will probably be like, this is sh*t.
J: No offense, it is sh*t. R: It is sh*t J: No, no offense, sorry. Sorry if you are Laurel. R: And maybe you do like it, and that’s on you. J:So listen, the takeaway, TikTok, if someone’s saying it’s viral, check it’s viral.
R: Have you seen it before? J: Yeah. Like, do you even care? Also… …I must say this, when it comes to viral on TikTok I think it’s very easy for people and things to go viral. R: This is why, when people get to like.
.. I’ve been on TikTok for two weeks and I have like 65,000 followers. J: Yeah. R: I feel like it’s very easy to get… J: They have a good algorithm, in the sense that everyone can become quite popular on it.
R: I think you can go on and get like a thousand like this. To me, like a million is like a hundred thousand. J: Yeah. Someone actually posted… who was it? There was like a talk about social media and it was comparing like what.
.. there’s almost like a conversion rate between YouTube and TikTok. It’s like 1 million on TikTok, like you said, is something like a hundred thousand on YouTube. R: Yeah. J: It’s kind of like that thing, as far as engagement goes, the type of engagement, it matches up, which I find really interesting, because I think it’s good that you can go onto TikTok and.
.. …easily build an audience. R: And here’s, here’s the deal right, I feel like it’s still, it’s not new, but it’s a platform that can only get bigger and better. So, get, you know what, get on it. Sponsored, we’re sponsored by TikTok.
