Unpopular opinions incoming
If you’re considered the ‘beauty person’ in your friend group, you’ll be well acquainted with the question, “is [insert popular product here] actually good? ”. Blame it on TikTok, clever marketing, or both, but a lot of us have become skeptics when it comes to viral beauty products .
