Snapchat filters, also known as Snapchat Lenses, have been around for quite a long time. Starting from the first ones when Snap was initially introduced - the dog filter, all the way to AI-powered filters, Snap Lenses have surely changed quite a lot.

Some of the filters are so good that people want to activate them on their Teams and Zoom meetings, but some of them are so bad that you might even wonder why they exist on the platform.

In this article, I’ll cover some of the worst filters I’ve encountered on Snapchat, and trust me, there’s a reason they’re labeled as the worst. Let’s get into it!

Where do I find the Snapchat filters?

Finding the Snap filters is quite simple. Follow these steps:

  1. Open Snapchat, and tap on the magnifying glass from the camera home screen.
  2. From there, you’ll be able to access Snapchat’s entire filter gallery and even use the search bar to find the filter you need.

Snapchat’s Worst Filters: The Complete List

If you thought Snapchat creators only develop good-looking filters, you have no idea how wrong you are. Check out the filters listed below:

  1. Retracted Face Lens

This filter makes your face look like… something quite familiar we’re unwilling to discuss. I still find it hard to comprehend whose idea the Retracted Face Lens was.

  1. Bold Makeup Lens

If you’re a TikTok user, you surely remember the Chav Trend. Well, Bold Makeup Lens will bring you right there and even maybe a bit further. A great example of what your makeup is not supposed to look like.

  1. Small Eyes and Lips Lens

If you ever wondered what the ugliest version of yourself would look like, here’s the answer. This might be the worst possible asymmetrical face shape, and since it has no other use, you’ll surely feel good about yourself after you take the Small Eyes and Lips filter off.

  1. Distorted Face Lens

Do you know the feeling when you’ve been out for a couple of drinks, and those couple of drinks turn into a couple more? Well, this filter shows what it feels like to go to bed after all those drinks. You’ll know what I’m talking about when you try the Distorted Face Lens.

I’m not sure if I even need to go into details about NASTY-SQUIDWARD Lens. The always grumpy character we all grew up with, portrayed in the worst possible manner. Consider your childhood ruined.

  1. Squidward Lens

There’s one more Squidward Lens, and if you ever wondered what the human version of him will look like, you can find out quite easily. On top of that, he will have your face. With a very, very, very large nose. Suspiciously large.

  1. Schweini Lens

If you’re one of those people who really want to know what they would look like as pigs (I hope you’re not), look no further. The Schweini Lens will give you pig ears and a pig nose for whatever reason.

  1. Mix Lens

This one is quite something. Check the Mix Lens out if you feel like rocking a bald head accessorized with a unibrow. I have nothing more to say.

Well, that’s a wrap for today. If you don’t feel traumatized enough by some of these filters, make a note to come back in a while to this article to check out the updated version. Snapchat is surely one of the platforms that offers funny things, so use these ugly filters to make fun of your friends, of course!
