Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser



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. 
Have you tried Maybelline Baby Skin?

  1. It's definitely a lot cheaper than Benefit but reviews seem to be a bit mixed.. I'm glad it's working for you and I'm so excited to see what my skin thinks of it :o). Xx

  14. I've heard mixed reviews on this but I really want to try it! Must suit some but not others I suppose! What skin type do you have? I have really dry skin so hopefully the greasy-ness won't effect me much? Great post! :)

  15. Ahhhh I've been so tempted by this I first saw it! I have the smash box primer so it would be amazing to find something so cheap that's similar! I think you have swayed me xx
