Hi pretty ladies 😉

We’ve gotten an overwhelming response for our review on the Maybelline Pure Mineral BB Aqua gel , which you can read here, so we’d thought we’d do another Maybelline review with the Maybelline Baby Skin Pore Eraser!

I’ve gone through several types of primers and the two important things I look out for within a primer would be to minimize the appearance of my pores and to create a smooth canvas so that my makeup doesn’t fall into the creases / settle into fine lines.

This product can be used both alone or under your makeup! It claims to “create a smooth canvas so that your makeup is able to glide on seamlessly – Skin also stains shine free and even all day” If used alone, the product helps ” blur lines, pores and creases”.


The translucent silicone gel reminds me of the smash box photoready primer / elite primers. It goes on really smooth and blends out really easily.  I prefer this -consistency as opposed to the benefit Porefessional primer as it slides on a lot easier without having to flake off. Its not sticky at all and has absolutely no fragrance.


I apply the product with either a foundation brush or my finger tips  mainly to my T-zone and my cheeks after I’ve finished applying my bb cream / tinted moisturizer and concealer to get a flawless finish. I do love the product as a finishing gel , it keeps my skin looking matte for most of the day. The blurring of the pores looks really natural and there are no visible streaks of the product after blending in.

Before & After

As you can see, the pores have been minimized quite a bit and my skin is still kept looking very natural.
Overall Thoughts

Personally, I find that this product doesn’t show too much of its effects if used under makeup, but does provide a smooth canvas nonetheless. The best way to use this product is through using it on top of makeup, it really creates a flawless finish to your makeup and in a way can act like a dupe for the Laura Mercier Secret Finish.

I do prefer this over my benefit porefessional – the results are more obvious and slightly more long lasting.  I do have to take this out in my bag sometimes depending on the weather for the day and for touching up if there’s a dinner / important errand to run for the day.

Should you have extremely oily skin, I’m not too sure that this product will last long, you would probably have to reapply during the day as I find that my T zone starts to get a little shiny mid day due to the weather despite having Normal- combination skin. So I do wish that the product would have had more lasting power in terms of controlling the oil.

Recommended for
– Anyone looking for a good primer
– normal – oily skin ; to help semi – mattify your look
– Anyone who wants to have a natural airbrushed look to their makeup

Would I repurchase?
Yes! for the price, this product is such a steal 😉 A perfect product to keep in my bag to touch up whilst being on the go.
