What in the TikTok, y’all? Apparently beauty influencers are using lube as makeup primer now.
According to StyleCaster, not just one, not just two, but multiple beauty influencers on TikTok have filmed themselves mixing their lube — yes, that kind of lube — with their foundation for that extra, sex-drenched glow.
You know, for when you need that go from day to orgy-at-night look.
For when you need that lady in the streets, Slimer also in the streets look.
For when you’ve always wanted to not just work at Jiffy Lube, but be Jiffy Lube too.

Why would someone want to do this? you may be wondering. And the answer is no clue. Unless they’re trying to turn their faces into a human slip and slide, recreating that wrestling scene from Old School, or gearing up to shove themselves inside something dark and cavernous to escape reality (wait, is that possible because?), there’s absolutely no reason for this fuckery.
While using lube on the face isn’t going to kill anybody, it sure as hell isn’t good for the skin.
Dermatologist Blair Murphy-Rose of the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York, who is also a clinical instructor of dermatology at Weill Cornell Medical College, says:
“First and foremost, not all lubricants are the same and what may work fine as a facial makeup primer for one person could be irritating or breakout-inducing for others. Some are oil-based and can clog pores. Others, like those with concentrated glycerin, can leave a sticky residue that may attract bacteria and debris, promoting acne.”
What’s more, there are plenty of products out there that are made to be used on the face and can help achieve the same look (unless you want to be human Jiffy Lube; can’t help you there).

I don’t know if we as a society aren’t providing people with enough intellectually stimulating activities or if pandemic fatigue has wormed its way into the part of the brain responsible for decision-making, but either way, they’re out here using sex goo on their faces for no good reason at all and somebody teach these people how to play Parcheesi or something instead.
Anything to help them better occupy their time.
