Maybelline Baby Skin Primer Review

14 January 2014

Remember Maybelline's Baby Lips? With all the hype around the launch of them they're hard to forget. Well this little tube here is its new sister. Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser is a 'lightweight primer which smooths skin and makes it appear poreless'

The formula is like a silicone gel, very similar to Smash Box's Photo Finish Primer the idea of the product is to smooth out the skin and hide any large pores that are visible and it can be used both under and over makeup.

I really like gel primers, so obviously I got along quite well with this one. I found that as soon as you spread it over the skin it blurred out imperfections and left skin feeling super soft. However, i'm not quite sure that it instantly erased my pores. My skin did look better and my pores were less visible but not quite erased, not quite like Benefits Porefessonal- but for the price difference, I highly recommend this one! 

I tried this out on Saturday morning before my dreaded nine hour long shift at work and my makeup lasted all day! Over all i'm really impressed with this primer, it left skin looking and feeling great and my makeup lasted all day. If thats what your looking for in a primer and like gel formulas, this is the one for you! It retails at £7.99 and I got mine from Boots.

Have you tried this yet?

      Oh thank you! :)

  2. I wasn't sure whether or not to try this! I've never really used primer before and I'm a huge maybelline fan so I might try it! I need it for my pores too :) x
