I tried the viral TikTok powder foundation – it's awful, my face looks better without it | The Sun

A BEAUTY fan has been left disappointed after trying a viral TikTok product which she has branded as "s****"

Kerri Roma Anderson, from Bo'Ness, West Lothian, boasts over 410,000 TikTok followers and regularly shares makeup hauls and tips.

The mum-of-one was excited to try Maybelline's new £11.99 powder foundation which has become a viral sensation on TikTok with beauty influencers.

Maybelline bosses promised their new SuperStay 24 hour product would give customers the "ultimate soft matte look".

In their online description, they added: "Up to 24 hours of medium to full matte coverage. Non stop comfort, weightless feel. Resists sweat, water and transfer. No caking, no patchiness."

But after trying it for herself in shade 40, Kerri insisted she “doesn’t see the hype”

She said: "I’m actually really disappointed. Everyone’s hyping this up but I’m going to be serious.

"I received this today and I was f***ing buzzing.

"I have seen everybody talk about how amazing this is. I thought I have to get this, it’s flawless, it’s fantastic. 

"It’s meant to be this fantastic powder everyone wets their pants about."

Kerri applied the powder foundation to half of her face with a damp beauty blender.

The results were obvious, with her skin looking instantly more matte and even.

However, Kerri said as soon as she stepped into natural lighting there were issues with the natural lighting – and thinks her natural skin looks better.

She told fans on TikTok (@roma_0490): "There’s my side with no makeup on, it’s glowy and a couple of imperfections. There’s the side with it on, it’s matte and lit’s got loads of f***ing s*** on.

"All these influencers in front of their ring lights going 'aww it’s stunning'.

"Let’s just show you this in natural light.

"Here we are in real light. Close up, it doesn’t even out right. It feels thick. It gathers in areas that are dry.

"I personally think the side of my face without makeup looks better.

I"t feels horrible and it wipes off onto your hands and your clothes.

"I just don’t get the hype on this product. I personally call bull**** on everybody who says this is amazing. It’s s****."

She added: "This is just my opinion on it. I used it the way viral TikTok have been using it. It’s probably not the way it’s meant to be used. If it’s used properly then, fabulous.

"People who like powder, it might be great for them.

"I personally think it was really cakey. It wasn’t even. It isn’t the hype that people are saying.

"I challenge any influencer preaching how great this is to turn their ring light off, apply it outside and do a screen close up of your face.

"I’m really disappointed because I wanted it to be good."

And beauty fanatics have hailed Kerri for her brutally honest review after having a similar experience with the product.

One said: "Finally someone has said it! I rushed out and got it and then was so disappointed with it! Great for setting under eyes but that's about it."

A second wrote: "Omg I'm glad I'm not the only one."

A third added: "100% rubbish I’m 45 and it made my skin look awful and dry, glad you’ve been honest with people."

Meanwhile, a fourth said: "YES. It looks great in videos/pictures but in person it's vile. I prepped my skin as always and it was awful and I was stuck with it on a night out."
