Lets face it, Maybelline sure knows how to send the beauty world into a total frenzy. Over the past year there has been a big song and dance over the brands products and its easy to see why. First there was the release of the ultimate under eye concealer and sought after Colour Tattoo's. Then in the Summer, the drugstore brand finally decided to bring the cult product, Maybelline Baby Lips, to British shores. With the hype dying down, it was only a matter of time before another product was thrown into the mix, que the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser.
Hailed as a drugstore equivalent to Benefit's Porefessional and Smashbox's Photo Finish Foundation Primer, I couldn't resist getting my mitts on one (plus im a total sucker for the cute packaging, shameful I know). The Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser does exactly what it says on the tube. The silicone based primer claims to reduce the appearance of pores whilst leaving the skin feeling velvety soft.
Personally I find that Baby Skin does a marvellous job of blurring pores and imperfections. To the touch this primer has a greasy, silicone like texture, that once blended into the skin, leaves a smooth matte like finish. I really would liken this to the Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer over Benefit's Porefessional (a primer that fills in pores rather than covering them).
The Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser is completely inexpensive making it a fab alternative to higher end silicone based primers on the market. At £7.99 this is a product that will be hard to beat.
