Marketing On TikTok
When TikTok first started off, it was a platform was known predominantly for dancing videos, pranks and funny moments in peoples' lives. TikTok has transformed tremendously over the past year and may be the best platform for brands to market their products.
The newest addition to a brand's social strategy is now TikTok. Users from the ages of 13-40 are constantly on TikTok, and brands utilizing this for free publicity have been able to come out on top. In this blog, Hollywood Branded will show ten brands that have gone viral on TikTok and will provide information on what brands can learn from this.
1. Amazon's Seasum Leggings
Seasum is the brand who created the viral TikTok leggings. The leggings went viral because of the perks these leggings have on a persons' body. The texture of these leggings are honeycomb and supposedly cover cellulite, lift your booty, and hug your hips just right, all thanks to the v-cut in the back. The leggings went viral, due to a multitude of women filming themselves trying on these leggings and candidly sharing their reactions (and sometimes even their significant others' reactions!). If you want your waist and booty to look snatched, follow the TikTok trend and get the leggings, linked here.
2. E.L.F. Cosmetics
E.L.F. Cosmetics has been doing a great job on TikTok this far. They created a hashtag #EyesLipsFace where users can post videos of them using E.L.F. Products. The hashtag has curated over 5 billion views.
More specifically, the E.L.F. Poreless Putty went viral on TikTok because it creates an effortless blurred effect on a persons' face. E.L.F. also created a hashtag (#elfmagicact) for this holy grail product, where people would show themselves before and after using the putty.

4. Ice Roller Face Massage
It's safe to assume that very few people understood the importance of ice rolling until it blew up on TikTok.

Using an ice roller helps de-puff your eyes and face, reduces inflammation, and overall just feels great; it's the perfect caffeine-free wake-up call for the morning! TikTok users are more and more often sharing their favorite Amazon finds in their videos, and ice rollers are consistently at the top of these lists! Get yours now here.
5. The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2% Peeling Solution
Just like a lot of other brands that blew up because of TikTok, The Ordinary was one of those brands that you either knew from the very beginning, or one that you just now learned about. Thanks to social media, however, The Ordinary is now a well-known brand, sold in stores like Sephora and Ulta, and is more often than not sold out in-stores and online. Their peeling solution, along with their other serums and cleansers, are extremely affordable and clean. The peeling solution, made out of AHA and BHA acids, works to fight blemishes, smooth texture and fine lines, and brighten the appearance of your skin, all under ten minutes.

6. Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara
When it comes to mascara, Maybelline has always been a drugstore favorite. From Great Lash to Falsies, Maybelline has had made a fortune with a number of their lash products. Thanks to TikTok, one of their newest ones, the Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara, has found similar success. When this product hit the aisles, a number of TikTok users, both big and small, took the app to give it a review.

It's not only beauty products that have gone viral on the app! In fact, even something so seemingly mundane, such as a kitchen organizer, has hit it big.

9. Dr. Jart Cicapair Color Corrector
According to Sephora, this product is a "green-to-beige color-correcting treatment that corrects redness and protects skin from UV damage and environmental aggressors." This product helps people calm down their inflamed skin, and it can be used as an everyday cover up (bye, bye foundation!)
Make-up artists and skin-care fanatics seem to be a huge fan of this product, and considering that it even works for those who struggle with rosacea, it appears to be pretty darn good at its job!
10. Cat Crack Catnip
For many cat lovers, a good catnip is a must, as this plant is known for producing a sedative effect on (some of) these furry creatures. And while all cats seem to enjoy catnip, the Cat Crack Catnip seems to be the fan-fav for these felines.
