If you think putty makeup is fascinating, then jelly-based products are up your alley. The jelly trend isn’t a new concept anymore. But when beauty vlogger Tati Westbrook recently tested out Butter London’s newest blush, people became more interested.
According to StyleCaster, the jelly-like consistency in makeup and skincare products started from Asian beauty. Brands also claim that these items “offer sheer coverage, firming action, and incredible moisture.”
Fast forward to now, jelly highlighters and lipsticks are trending among online beauty gurus. If you want to get on the trend too, shop our makeup and skincare picks below. There are also familiar products that you might’ve used before.
