Did you spot the same filter trends we saw this week? 

Here’s our list. Let’s compare.

And while we’re at it, let’s give a round of applause to the creators behind this round of  trending filters 👏🏽🎊

Top trending TikTok filters and effects for the week

Now, let’s get into each of this week’s top filters and effects!

River Crossing Filter 

Gamified effects are a huge opportunity for engagement on TikTok. Sometimes we just can’t resist a good challenge. And this week came in hot with some addicting effects people can’t seem to get enough of. One of them being the River Crossing IQ effect created by @duongtan74.

It’s a fun game where you’ve got two plains of land separated by a river. On one side, there’s a sheep, and on the other, a fox and three balls of cabbage. 

The goal? 

Get the sheep, the fox, and the cabbage all on one side of the river without the sheep getting a chance to munch on the cabbage (don’t worry, the fox isn’t interested in it 🤣). If the sheep gets to the cabbage, well, it’s game over!

Some users have been racking their brains over how to get this done, while others are wondering what all the fuss is about lol.

Here’s a solution video:

Egg on spoon filter

Aka the Egg Balancing Challenge created by @harauff.  

So, you’ve got a virtual spoon in your mouth, and sitting on top is an egg with the most charming little face.

 Your task? 

Tilt your head and do whatever it takes to keep that egg steady on the spoon. As you’re balancing away, your score keeps ticking up—the longer you balance, the higher your score.

There’s been some chatter about hitting a score of 16 being hard to do, but we’ve seen users making it look like a walk in the park! 

Square Moving Filter 

The last trending challenge of the week is the Square Mover created by @byluislorenzo and it’s becoming quite the trend. 

The goal is to get all the colored squares back into their designated sections, moving one by one, all while avoiding any collisions.

It seems straightforward enough, but the real buzz is coming from the ongoing debates about how hard it actually is. 

So, is it hard or not? We’ll let you be the judge.

Random Halloween Makeup Filter 

As we approach that time of the year again, get ready for more spooky filters and effects to start populating your ‘For You’ feed, like the Random Halloween Face filter created by @tetedetamere

It’s a cool randomizer filter that comes up with a bunch of different Halloween makeup styles for you to experiment with.

Whether you’re looking for a more spooky, sweet, or downright eerie look, there’s a style waiting to inspire your Halloween costume this year. 

Check it out!

Strawberry Makeup Filter

Staying on the makeup wave, Hailey Bieber’s new Strawberry Makeup look has been going viral recently. You can watch her video here in case you missed it.

TikTok filter creator Aram (@aramkk5) created the Strawberry Makeup filter to pay homage to Hailey’s new look and it has been picking up some good traction on TikTok this week.
