Make Up And Hair (MUAH) - Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser
Today's featured product is not new but surprisingly, it's still popular in the drugstore. That's actually one reason why I bought it - to see what's the real deal.
Quick fun fact - this is the first ever primer I've purchased. I was not into them so much because I thought of them only as an extra step in my makeup routine. However, things changed after watching so many Youtube beauty videos and seeing how these bases made a huge difference to the appearance of their skin. Some of the good ones available in the market can even improve a foundation's lasting power and coverage. Astonishing.
I thought of trying a drugstore brand first before traversing to the "high-end" side of the makeup street. So yes, here's a very familiar and cute tube you can find in any Maybelline counter.
299 php for 22 ml
It's called Baby Skin Pore Eraser, a silicone-based primer that claims to give a flawless and poreless face.
What I love about it
- nice everyday primer for the price
- a little amount goes a long way - just concentrate on the center of the face
- very lightweight
- my skin can still breathe with it on
- no troubles spreading the product on the face
- makes the skin softer
- no weird scent
- blurs out fine lines
- nice tube packaging - you can easily control the amount of product
- makes my BB/CC cream less sticky
- makes the skin look a little matte
There's always a BUT
- you need to wait for it to set before applying foundation because if not, the two will just mix
- it doesn't work as a pore eraser completely, I'd say below average
- it cannot blur medium to large pores
- it does not minimize the appearance of bumps and dark spots
- there's no brightening effect
- the fact that it contains silicone could be an issue for some, luckily, I'm not sensitive to that so no breakout
- it does not make the foundation to last longer
- no oil-control
Overall, I don't really see any significant difference "when applying it" versus "when I don't have it underneath". In my opinion, people with lesser skin/pore issues would appreciate it more.
The pore-erasing effect is very subtle and minimal but good thing, it works on fine lines. For me, it's more of a blurring primer so I guess, it's still good to use if you just want to use a primer to make the skin smooth prior makeup application for easier blending.
When I apply a tad bit amount on my brows, they're so much effortless to groom and fill-in (that's when I use a brow crayon/pencil). Try it!
