Maybelline Baby Skin Primer


 Hello Lovelies! 

I hope you all have had a good weekend! Yesterday I hit 900 followers on bloglovin' and may have done a happy dance! Thank you all so much, I always get so excited to see an new face appear on my follower list or a new comment! I love hearing what you guys think of my posts. This year I'm trying to put alot more effort into my blog, my hours have changed at work and it works out that I have alot more mornings free now so it gives me lots more chance to take pictures for my posts! If you live in Ireland or the UK you will know what I'm talking about when I say there is very limited day-light time for photo taking! So if you have any requests for blog posts you would like to see please let me know!

Anyway after that ramble, today's post is showing you one of my infamous lunchtime purchases. I'm such a disaster for buying on my breaks. I really should just leave my purse at home, I think it would be a safer option! The latest impulse buy was the Maybelline Baby Skin. Now we've all heard about the infamous Baby Lips which took the blogging world by storm. I think at this stage everyone owns at least one, I definitely have one or two around the place! But when I seen the new offering from Maybelline I was intrigued! My first thoughts was that it could be a drug store dupe for Benefit's Porefessional with alot friendlier of a price-tag!

Since trying it I am pleased to report back to say this is definitely comparable to the Porefessional. The main difference that I found was that the Porefessional has a little bit of a tint to it where as the Baby Skin is clear. When applying this I smooth it over my forehead, down the centre of my face and a little bit on my chin as I find these to be the areas where my pores are the largest and where my make up wears off the quickest. After application I can straight away see a difference to my skin, it is more even and pores are visibly reduced. You could even get away with just popping abit of this on if you were having a good skin day and it would just even out your skin a little bit without the need for foundation. It is lovely and lightweight on the skin so it doesn't feel like you are putting on a thick primer that is suffocating your pores. 

Throughout the day I find that it helps prolong my make up nicely. My chin is always one of the areas on my face where make up just seems to disappear from but with this applied under my foundation I find myself having to touch up less throughout the day. I really do love the way this feels on my skin, it also controls excess oil that may appear during the day which means less powdering.

For the price I really do recommend you give this a go, it is one of the best primers I have used and one I really do enjoy having in my make up bag. It is available to buy online here. Have you tried the Baby Skin? What are your thoughts?

  3. I've seen some not so happy reviews on the Baby Lips, so I was apprehensive to buy this, but I have fallen head over heels this year for POREfessional, and that this could be a cheaper dupe of POREfessional, I may give this a go! I've been on the lookout for a cheaper primer that could compare to POREfessional :)

  7. I really need to try this primer! I just bought the rimmel one so not quite sure I can justify it but any product that can help with my pores would be amazing!

  8. Pleased to hear its clear, I prefer primers that are thick and clear as they should be more like a glue than trying to be a bb cream or tinted moisturizer or something!
