So today I have been testing out the new launch from Maybelline’s ‘baby’ line. The baby skin instant pore eraser.
I love my peach kiss baby lips to death. So I have been really looking forward to getting my hands on this and giving it a try. Now that I have I wanted to share my first impressions with you…
Baby skin is a silicone based primer that claims to instantly erase the appearance of pores. I don’t have overly noticeable pores on my skin so I can’t comment too much on its effectiveness. Which is strangely annoying me!
What I noticed and loved though is how it gives a definite instant soft-focus effect. The smooth finish to the skin which combined with the silky gel texture makes it a dream when it comes to the application of foundation over it.
It can also be worn alone if you don’t really need any coverage. I think it would be great worn with a bit of concealer or tinted moisturiser in the summer for a natural look.
Packaging wise, I’m not gonna lie, not even a white one. The only reason I bought a tube of baby lips was due to its’ ultra cute packaging. I am a sucker for it! Maybelline has followed suit here with cute pastel packaging. The equally cutesy pink font may offend the uber chic but I love it!
At £7.99 for 22ml of product it’s definitely a good price to product ratio. Considering the tiny amount you need per application, it should last ages!
On first impressions, it gets a big thumbs up from me. I can’t find anything negative to say. I’d definitely recommend giving it a try if you are in the market for an affordable primer.I’ll keep you updated.
Available in Boots stores and online now.
