Maybelline Baby Skin Review

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last year Maybelline finally released the famed Baby Lips lip balms here in the UK, and this month they broadened the range by adding a primer-type product. The Baby Skin Instant pore eraser has been hotly anticipated and has been one that I have been desperate to pick up, so let’s see how it fairs.

Claims…

  • Smooth and pore-less skin.
  • More refined.
  • Can be worn with or without primer.

I am having a really bad skin day today so I wasn’t going to take pictures of moi, so instead I have used my hand!

First Impressions…

  • I really like the bottle design because it fits in perfectly with the childlike theme of the general baby range and I quiet like the pale blue and pink contrast.
  • BUT….I really don’t like the tiny narrow pipe at the bottle top. It reminds me of a spot cream, and doesn’t seem fitting for this product time.
  • It’s a gel like consistency, and reminds me of the Smashbox primer because that is a similar colourless gel too. I didn’t like the Smashbox one but this one feels a lot smoother and not as sticky as that one did.

Review…

  • This blends easily and it slips over the skin easily. It’s not sticky or greasy and it did do a pretty good job of immediately smoothed and evened out my pores and skin colouring.
  • My make-up sat perfectly on it and my foundation lasted all day.

Verdict- This is a really good high-street primer and I am pleasantly surprised by this product. It’s not my favourite, I love the L’Oreal studio fix primer because it is luxuriously thick and thickens out the skin beautifully, and this definitely lacks the thickness. This is a lot cheaper than that one, and is definitely worth the money. I am definitely going to be using this, and who knows, on good skin days then maybe I will wear it alone!! 4/5.

Have you tried this?
