Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser!

Maybelline seem to be jumping on the 'baby' range of products, first their Baby Lips and now the most recent edition: Baby Skin. The Baby Skin is supposed to be a primer applied before your foundation to give you a poreless, smooth complexion. Here on the blogosphere I've seen it being dubbed as a 'dupe' for the oh-so-famous Benefit Porefessional. As lovely as Porefessional is, it comes with quite a price tag and for £7.99 I thought it was worth giving this primer a go.

Personally I don't think its that similar to Porefessoinal at all, I think its more like the Smashbox Photofinish primer - another cult favourite. I think the reason it reminds me of the Smashbox version is because its clear in colour. Something about the texture too seems more similar. I think that the Baby Skin is a nice primer, it fills in any large pores and smoothes out the texture of the skin before applying makeup. I do find that you only need a small amount though, if you apply too much the skin becomes slippy and it becomes hard for any makeup to adhere to it. I find that a little certainly goes a long way. Unlike the Smashbox or Benefit version I don't think that the Baby Skin makes a massive difference to how long my makeup lasts. I would say it definitely keeps it looking flawless though out the day instead of looking like an oily mess, but not as long as its high end competitors. However, I do think for its price tag it performs very well, it does what it says on the tin; it smooths out the skin and gives you a poreless complexion! If you've wanted to try a primer I'd definitely say to give this a go before you splash out on something more pricey.
