After seeing this new primer from Maybelline popping up everywhere recently, I couldn’t help but pick it up and see what all the fuss was about. At a reasonable £7.99 it was worth a try.
Maybelline claims that this primer will erase pores with or without foundation, for baby-soft feeling – poreless-looking skin. Let’s have a look…
I actually really like the packaging for the product; it definitely suits the name ‘baby’ skin. The light green tube allows you to easily squeeze enough products out to use, it’s hygienic, handy and lightweight.
The product itself is a fragrance free transparent gel, it glides onto the skin effortlessly, however as you rub it in it does feel a little greasy. When completely rubbed in I thought the primer left my skin feeling beautiful and silky.
I don’t agree with the claim that this leaves your skin looking poreless, with or without make-up. For me this didn’t really hide them without makeup at all, however when my makeup was applied I thought the difference was amazing.
In a nutshell?
I have really enjoyed using this primer, in terms of staying power I think there are definitely some better primers on the market, but I think for the price it has done a really great job at reducing the appearance of pores and overall I have really enjoyed using the product, I’d definitely recommend for anyone with slight pore problems and think it would work really great with dry to normal skin.
