Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser

Hey guys, so today I’m going to be doing a short review on the Maybelline Instant Pore Eraser, which seems to be really popular. I’m not sure whether I like this product or not but here I’ll give you reasons why and then you can decide whether you like it or not, keep in mind you can also go into a store try it on and see for yourself.

Firstly it comes packaged in a quirky blue tube and it costs £7.99 for a 22ml sized bottle, this is a reasonably price product as higher end primers cost between twenty and thirty pounds. The formula itself is like a creamy gel and its silicone based, you can wear it before or even after you apply your foundation. This product is made to blur out the appearance of pores and fine lines on your face, personally I think this does a good job of doing it as the fine lines and pores on my face are less visible. You could even wear the Maybelline Instant Pore Eraser on its own as it is made to give you an even canvas.

I usually apply my foundation before, this means I am unable to buff it into my face as it would defeat the purpose of it erasing my pores. To apply my foundation I take my time and dab it onto my face, it does make my face feel oilier due to this and I feel as though my make-up doesn’t last very long either.

If you are to wear this on its own then that is perfectly fine however underneath make-up I don’t think it really works very well. Do you need this? If you have a lot of pores and fine lines then it would make that slight difference however for mainly a primers use then personally I don’t think it’s that good because your make up won’t last as long, your face will feel greasy and I think you can get better primers that will do a better job.
