The word “mascara” has acquired a different meaning in TikTok. Here’s everything you need to know about this secret code word that is going viral on social media.
As the Internet develops, more and more new abbreviations and slang appear on social platforms. For example, “FYP” TikTok is a very popular term on the site, referring to the “Page for You” of the application, which recommends content to users.
However, from time to time another jargon appears on TikTok, which takes old words and gives them a new meaning — the latter of which uses an old cosmetic product.
Right now, users from all over TikTok are talking about “mascara” — a makeup tool designed to lengthen and darken eyelashes.
What is #mascaratrend in TikTok?
Although the mascara itself has been around for literally centuries, the social media site gives this particular term a new meaning.
In TikTok, the word “mascara” refers to someone’s romantic partner, not a small stick with stubble.
Many users use this word to describe their relationship in roundabout ways, like this TikToker who said, “The only mascara I’ve ever really liked ended up hurting my eyelashes very badly, so now I’m too afraid to try any new mascara because I can’t let so that my eyelashes will be damaged again.”

Right now, TikTokers are discussing their past and current relationships using the hashtag #mascaratrend, which at the time of writing boasts more than 25 million posts.
Commentators are running around with a strange comparison between romance and makeup, even coming up with a few humorous jokes to describe their personal lives.
“My mascara is stuck in another tube,” one user joked.
“I had to give up mascara,” said another. “After a while, I couldn’t recognize myself in him.”
Another said that she had “my mascara since I was 14. I’m 24 now. I’ve only tried mascara, but I know there’s nothing like it anywhere else. I even made a smaller version because I like it so much.”
