Sorry I haven’t posted in a while but I had a busy schedule with uni assignments and what not. So I wanted to come back from my week break with a review of the Maybelline Baby Skin, Instant Pore Eraser.
I bought this about a week and a half ago and wanted to give myself a good few days to try and test this product to see what my true feelings where about it.
I love the name of this product as it goes with the concept of the product making your skin like a babys. This really appeals to me as I think it has slight pun to the product making it a little bit more fun. And we all love a bit of fun!
First ill talk about the packaging on this primer, i really like the cute look on the product with the baby blue and bright pink. I think it really sells what it is, going with the ‘baby’ theme. I also like the nib of the product as the hole the product comes out of is the right size for the amount of product that would be put on the skin. I have found some primers in the past the opening for the product is too big and this means that too much comes out at a time, wasting most of the product.
Now for the real talk! The product itself, which of course is the reason why we buy this and not for the name or the packaging!
When I first used this I thought the texture of the product was a little bit strange as it is like a gel and I have never used a gel primer before. However I got over this and actually quiet liked the fact it was a gel as I think it makes it feel a little bit cooling when applied to the skin. Once rubbed in the primer turns to almost a powder as you set it in, much like the Benefit Porefessional. Which is definitely a positive of this primer.
Strange title I know but I didn’t know what else to call it. The only thing im not a huge fan of is how long the primer actually make your make up last on your face. The overall look of the primer with the base face products on top is fine it certainly make your pores look less like craters in the face. However, with normal primers they usually make your make up last longer during the day. I didn’t find this with this primer, I would get half way through the day and feel the need to top up on parts of my make up that I wouldn’t normally when wearing other primers.
Overall I would buy this product again if it was for more of a no make-up kind of look but for a full face of make-up I think a better primer is needed due to it not lasting as long as some do.
If you have any questions dont hesitate to ask!
