I tried a popular budget setting powder but it was such a fail… people say it's my fault and they might be right | The Sun

A BEAUTY fan has shared an honest review of a popular supermarket setting powder, which left her with major flashback in photos.

Make-up enthusiast Marf Mae (@marfymae), from the UK, suffered the blunder whilst out with her pals in Australia who took snaps of her.

Although in person the beauty enthusiast looked fabulous, the reality was slightly different in the photos taken with flashlight.

There, Marf quickly came to discover that the product she had applied earlier – NYX Professional Make-up Studio Finishing Powder – left her with white under-eyes.

Mortified, she desperately attempted to rub it off – but sadly, with no luck.

''It looks like you've got sunscreen under your eyes,'' joked one of her friends in the background.

But soon, people on TikTok shared their guesses as to why the flop had taken place – and they all insisted it had been Marf's fault.

One explained in detail: ''Tip for the girlies, this is a finishing powder NOT SETTING.

''It’s meant to have flashback because you should only apply a thin layer where you want a blurring effect in your pictures, so do not bake or set your face with this!''

Someone else agreed, writing: ''The difference between a setting powder and an hd finishing powder is huge and important.''
