Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser Review
So of course Maybelline wanted to leverage / cash on their hugely popular and successful Baby Lips franchise! And ta-da, here we have two new products that carry forward the ‘baby’ portfolio…with Maybelline Baby Skin. First is the Asian exclusive, Maybelline Baby Skin Pink Transformer and the latter, Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser. While the latter was launched in Europe / USA a while ago, it has recently made its way to South East Asia.
What Maybelline says, “Poreless Smooth Skin Perfection! One second to smooth, poreless skin. Get mistake- proof, poreless smooth skin with Maybelline New York Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer.
- Poreless Smooth Skin Perfection!
- One Second To Smooth, Poreless Skin
- Visibly Pore Blurring Smooth Skin
Maybelline Baby Skin provides a matte finish and leaves the skin fresh, soft and protected. The gel texture in Baby Skin instantly helps to vanish pores and makes the skin feel light. It avoids a shine on the skin and makes the skin feel soft. Bye bye pores!
How to use: Apply alone or under make-up. Take a small amount of Baby Skin Pore Eraser on your finger tips and apply evenly to the required face area. If applying makeup, wait until Baby Skin Pore Eraser is set.
Only for adults! Suitable for all skin types and tones.”
My experience with the product:
The tube is a pretty aquamarine color with pink letters. The cap fastens well and is super travel friendly. Claimed to contain Cherry Extracts, known for their anti oxidant properties, Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser is transparent with a dry, thick consistency. Easy to spread and a little bit spreads over a large area and mattifies the skin really well.
Definitely minimizes pores and delivers reasonably well in that area. Requires judicious use (less quantity) as going overboard can make it feel sticky and skin feel oily.
While packaging doesn’t claim it to be a primer, on the Maybelline website the product is categorized as a primer. I mostly use it in small quantities over my cheek area where my pores are the most prominent. It does have silicone, making it easy to apply make up over it. It doesn’t really claim to make your make up last longer. My skin is combination (dry/normal) so it works well, however I have read reviews where it did not work for oily skins.
- Non sticky
- Smoothens imperfections
- Definitely minimizes pores!
- Easy to apply
- Effective in making make up go on easily, also last longer
- Little bit goes a long way
- Reasonably priced
What May Not Work:
- Not yet in India (to the best of our knowledge)
- Not recommended for oily skin
Price: USD 6.99
Recommendation: Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser is excellent value for money for normal/dry skin. With silicone, it smoothens and mattifies facial skin, and blurs the pores. Used in small quantities, helps make up glide on and stay put. Recommended!
