Maybelline Baby Skin Review

Sunday, 23 February 2014

Before I start with the review - I was thinking while typing the header and naming my photos....the name “Baby Skin”’s a little creepy as a product name?? No...just me? Anyhow, onto the review.

I picked this up as soon as I could get my hands on it, again another product I had to get from the UK as Malta can sometimes be 6 months behind with products, which can be frustrating when you’re a makeup addict like myself (and probably you too if you’re reading this!).

This has been a staple product for the last month in my collection. I’ve been loving the baby lips products, so I had high hopes for the product, there was even hushed rumours that it’s a dupe for Benefits Porefessional! I’ve been wanting to try Porefessional, but couldn’t bring myself to part with the money so I can’t comment if it’s a dupe or not. But this product is probably my new favourite primer.

You only need a small amount (pea-sized) and it applies clear and blends easily into the skin, creating a smooth and fine coverage of the skin, it’s actually quite a pleasant product just to use on your skin alone as it mattifys the skin. I find that my make up sits a lot better when I use this before hand, hence why it’s been a staple since I’ve got my hands on it.

It’s not often I change primers, I tend to find one I like and stick with it. I’d previously been using Seventeen Primer which has been doing the job, but I think I prefer this.

Have you tried Baby skin and Porefessional? Let me know how they compare...

  1. Great review! I was thinking of trying this when I first saw it, but haven't got round to it just yet. What are the benefits of using a primer compared to not using one with make up would you say? As I've never been rather keen on primers as I never knew the benefits :)

    1. Hi Mary :)

      I like using a primer as it preps my skin for make up, it create a smooth an even base and will mattify the skin. It also keeps my make up in place longer. Sometimes without a primer I feel my make up just slides of by mid day. Eye primers are good as well, they will keep your eyeshadow on for longer and stay crease proof.

      Hope this helps :) xx
