Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Review

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

I have been eagerly anticipating Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser since September but the good news is that the wait is over and come January which is mere days away this baby (excuse the pun) will launch. The good news is that Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser really does live up to my exceptions and that it is not all that pricey - £7.99/22ml.


Of course Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser will draw comparisons to Benefit's Porefessional - they are both light almost serum like silica based products that create a soft, matte, velvet like finish and help blur imperfections such as fine lines and enlarged pores. However unlike the Porefessional this does not separate on my skin - after a few hours Benefit's version somewhat bobbles and flakes off my skin. Rather I like Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser to Smashbox's Photo Finish Foundation Primer.

Truthfully for the price (£7.99) this is almost impossible to beat and I predict upon its launch it will be an instant hit and quickly become a staple product for a good few. Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser is a clear silky gel that can be applied on bare skin to perfect the natural skin, as a primer for foundation and applied on top of make-up to mattify the skin and fill in pores/fine lines should you wish. In all aspects it does create a matte base, blurs problem areas and helps aid oil control. It does not cling to dry areas rather it softens them and helps any product applied over the top glide on, it also prolongs the wear of products applied on top if used as a primer. When used on naked skin as a stand alone product it creates a natural, soft almost photo-shopped effect - in other words your skin but better. 

In terms of minimising pores it does as good a job as any other silicone based primer out there - yes it disguises them and does so with the use of silica to smooth over the skins suffer and fills them in somewhat.
No it doesn't work miracles but every little helps but those who have experienced problems with the likes of Benefit Porefessional should steer clear as it contains similar ingredients and will arise the same problems. 
As a regular user of silicone based primers I can happily say that this is one of the best I have used and given the price point of Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser it knocks the other counterparts out of the water. When this launches you simply have to try it out!

  3. This looks sooo good! I've never tried the Benefit Porefessional before and in fact, I don't really own any decent face primers at the moment. I think this one will definitely be worth trying and it's so cleaver that it resembles the Porefessional quite a bit but is much more reasonably priced! xx

  5. Really looking forward to trying this out- I was tempted to go for the Porefessional but will go for this cheaper option as I'm noticing my pores more and need a nice primer to sort all of that out!

  17. Of the primers I've tried, benefits porefessional and smashbox photofinish have been the best. This seems like a great alternative, especially since they can be pretty pricey. I can't wait to try this out!

  31. I'm often tempted to try out other primers but I'm always slightly scared to move away from my Clinique Redness Solutions one because I suffer with quite bad redness that's a bit of a mare to cover. So I'm not sure about using a primer that doesn't have a green tint :(

  32. I love the Smashbox primer so can't wait to try this! Had no idea it was even launching so I'm excited! Xx

  33. I need someone to tell me why all the best makeupey things launch in the UK! This will never make it to the US, I bet. :( Same with the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation that everyone raves about. I wish they'd do dual coast launches across the board so us American's could try this. It looks amazing and definitely sounds like something I'd buy.
