Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser primer- review


I was reading a glossy magazine and when I turned over one of the pages I saw this little sample of the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser which is their version of a primer. I've only ever really tried one other sample of a primer and that was a Clinique one, but I didn't find that one very impressive. However I was curious as to how this one would perform, so I gave it a whirl. As soon as I opened the sachet I realised that it was a silicone based primer that appeared to be translucent, which is good if you want to wear it without any makeup on top of it. Another good point is that I couldn't smell any obvious fragrance that would put people off, so that's a nice bonus. I found that it applied really smoothly over my skin and glided on without any hesitation. The time it took to sink into my skin was very fast which I liked. I decided to apply it only to one side of my face so that you could see the difference between the two sides. On the left I had no product on, on the right I had the primer on.


Left side (bare in mind I was in front of a mirror while I was taking this).



Right side

I hope that you can tell that my pores in the second photo are significantly reduced and also most of the redness that's usually there is toned down quite a bit, whilst in the first photo my pores are easily visible and the area surrounding them is very red. In terms of the staying power, I've been wearing this all day and it's now well into the evening and my skin still feels smooth and the right side of my face still looks better than the left side of my face! hahaha.

I really hope you enjoyed this review and I shall see you soon xxx

    1. Yeah it's worth a try, it works really well for a drugstore primer, also if you like this one more than the Benefit one you would save a lot off money. x

    1. That's good that you can tell from the photos that the product worked. I was worried people might not be able to tell as I don't have a very advanced camera, so I'm glad the photo comparison worked. x

  8. Ahh, I like that Maybelline have come out of a dupe for Benefit Pore-Fessional. It looks so-far-so-good and I hope it does itself justice against the oh-so-famous Benefit alternative!
    Lovely post! <3
