For the challenge, women apply lipstick while saying, "What do you mean how do I drink water after applying lipstick? I just drink it normally." They then turn on a big-mouth face filter and drink the water.

People immediately got really creative with the challenge and started trying it out with food as well.

User @jingyun then uploaded a video of her applying lipstick and putting a whole spoonful of food in her mouth over Pikotaro's song "Pen Pineapple Apple Pen." The video went particularly viral on the app, gaining more than 301,000 likes.

It then turned into a spinoff challenge called "Eating After Applying Lipstick," and women all over China joined in.
