    Didn't really see any difference, however, it added a nice touch of moisture. Otherwise, not really worth another buy.

    Comments about Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer:

    I use this as a primer under my Bare Minerals Ready foundation. I think it is just wonderful. NARS primer for oily skin is usually the best one for my skin (oily T zone), but it's so pricey that I was only using it for special occasions. This Baby Skin is PERFECT for daily use. I think I may even like it better, but I haven't tried it with liquid foundation yet because I am so in love with the coverage and longevity I get from pairing it with the Bare Minerals. My makeup stays on for hours and hours with this, and looks 10x better (so smooth, not cakey!) than when I don't use it.

    My pores aren't all that large, so I can't attest to it making pores look smaller. But it really does smooth everything out and gives me a nice canvas that really holds onto my Bare Minerals (which usually disappears after a couple of hours).

    I haven't had any breakouts since using it so I am happy that it doesn't clog my pores and irritate my skin. It does help my Bare Minerals foundation to more effectively cover a blemish that is healing (using the concealer brush).

    I was surprised at how small the tube is, but ultimately I am okay with that because you barely need any and it fits better in a makeup bag.

    Some reviews are saying it's very heavy feeling, I personally don't think so. I only use about the size of an M&M (smaller actually) for my entire face. I start where my skin is oiliest and blend out from there. Maybe that's why I don't think it's heavy, because I am just using a small dab.

    For less than a third of the price of the NARS, I really think it's worth a shot.

      Comments about Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer:

      I heard a lot about this product on YT abd IG...I have enlarged pores on my cheeks..I use a pea-sized amount in those areas in a circular motion in both directions. I saw a change immediately!!! I have been trying to conceal those annoying things forever!! I dont use this as a primer..doesnt do the job in that area...I have combination skin and live in the south..Milk of magnesium and my Makeup Forever HD primer work best in warm humid weather that makes me look oily...they Keep my face matte..I used this primer on my cheeks and EVERYTHING came together perfectly. I noticed the difference without makeup, when i put it on it was even better...for the price and results, you can't beat it...

          Comments about Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer:

          I really don't understand how some people are raving about this product! I love maybelline, so when I saw and heard about the baby skin primer, I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. It is AWFUL! I've used several primers, and expected this to act in the same way, as a base for foundation, but it did nothing like that. I have dry sensitive skin, and I could tell from just squeezing some out that it was not the consistency I expected. It is very oily, and going on it actually does make your skin feel smooth and slightly minamizes pores, but it all just get's worse from there. Before I even started applying foundation, it was already "peeling" and coming off in areas when I was applying it. As soon as it started to sink in and dry after applying it, any time I touched it, it would start flaking off and peeling. Then when I tried to apply foundation, it got even worse. Right away when I started applying foundation, anywhere I was rubbing the foundation, the primer would peel/flake. I finally accomplished the very difficult task of applying the foundation, only to find that my foundation wasn't even sticking in some areas so I had some parts of my face that had foundation, and then others that were missing patches because it wouldn't adhere to my skin. And then once again, anywhere I touched my face even slightly, the foundation would just wipe off. I finally just took all of my makeup off and started over. On top of it all, it caused me to break out. Maybelline is one of my favorite brands, but they really dropped the ball on this one.

            i have normal skin and this product made me an oil grease ball! i can't stand it! a lot of people compared this to the benefit professional and it doesn't come close! the best use for this is to apply it under your concealer if you problems with it creasing. won't repurchase.

              Comments about Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer:

              This product was a waste of money. The texture when you put it on is great. However, the smell is horrible and I find it not to work. I apply this before putting my foundation on and throughout the day my foundation would rub off (which I never have a problem with) and leaves it looking cakey even with applying a moisturizer beforehand.I saw no blurring of my pores as it claims and it was just another add on to my routine. Also, after using it, it caused me to break out.

              Comments about Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer:

              I brought this primer because it was cheap and all the rage on makeupaddiction on reddit. While I've only tried like 2 other primers this is definitely the best so far.I like it because I have flakey acne-prone skin and this helped reduce the appearance of both. It made my skin feel super soft!!! It may have all been in my head, but it seemed to mattify my skin to a nice degree. I'd warn you if you have sensitive skin however, I hear silicone causes breakouts. The only con I personally experienced is that it didn't last all that long.

                This did NOT work! I thought everything was going great until about a week after using it when I noticed larger pores and a red irritation on the areas I used it on! I had to give it to my mom but it works great for her!

                  Does absolutely nothing other than oil you up with silicones and makes you look messy. Fells like glycerin on skin, gross.
