Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser: this makeup primer leaves skin baby smooth with a silky, natural matte finish. A "woke up like this" look.
Rated 3.72 out of 5 stars
I noticed a difference on my pores immediately! They look blurred and much less noticeable. I have a patch of pores that I am always self conscious about and this worked wonders! Would definitely recommend to anyone, quality product for a good price.
This primer was horrible. I have oily, acne-prone skin and bought this primer because I thought it would make my makeup look better and I saw people raving about it. It did not do anything for my pores and made my skin look oilier than it is! Not only that but I kept getting huge breakouts after using it, my assumption is that the oil in the product clogged my pores. It was very disappointing because as someone who has been struggling with acne for years, it is a HUGE inconvenience when makeup breaks me out. DO NOT RECOMMEND.

I've been looking for a dupe for my Smashbox primer and oh my, my! The texture, the look, the blurring and smoothing effect are all the same. It's a beautiful primer, and it helps my foundation lay smoothly around my nose instead of creasing or breaking apart. AND ITS SO CHEAP! The only con to it is I don't see how it's "hydrating".

I'm on my 6th tube of Maybelline Baby Skin instant pore eraser. This does EXACTLY what it says it will do, minimize pores to almost nothing, within seconds! No other product even comes close to this level of effectiveness. It does nothing else but minimize pores, but it does that perfectly!

This made my pores look super huge, especially on my nose. It's thick to the point that it made my skin feel greasy rather than primed. Just didn't absorb well with my young skin. I'm sure it's wonderful if you have more mature skin, but if you're younger like me, I wouldn't recommend this.

I bought this product a while ago at a different store and when it ran out I turn to Ulta for it and I absolutely love this product. I can see why it's called baby skin because that's absolutely how it makes your skin feel. It's supposed to be a pore reducer but I bought it to use it for my wrinkles and fine lines and it does well on those also. I will continue to use this product as long as it is available!

It's slippery, never sets and as a result, makeup doesn't set. It's just awful. My make up slips around. It's NOTHING like porefessional. At all.
Definitely not a dupe.
I kept trying this product over and over again, thinking that the reviews are really good. Maybe I was missing something…
But no. I've been wearing makeup since I was 12 and now I'm forty, so I know when a product is no good.
Consider the source when taking reviews into consideration.

Best primer there is. I had recommended absolutely anyone and I constantly rave about it to my friends!
Cc from South Carolina
This type of product just feels so outdated. It is very slippery. I feel like makeup just slides around on top of it. I don't even think this makes my skin look more smooth. I think my makeup wipes off easily when I wear this
vyno from nyc
this is sooo good, not exaggerating. i have dry skin that's textured in some areas (especially my nose). immediately when i applied it, my skin felt so nice. i use the maybelline fit me foundation and combined with baby skin, my skin looks insanely good. it genuinely looks like my foundation is my skin. compared to my foundation with no primer, with primer i noticed that all the texture on my nose was gone, WHICH never happens. my foundation looked incredibly smooth and there was no cake. HIGHLY recommend!!!!! especially since it's under $10, im not disappointed!!
Ginny from NY
This deserves 5 stars hands down! I am a person with dry and very textured skin. One of the main issues I have is my very enlarged pores, for a couple months my pores keep getting worse, making me self conscious about my appearance. I've been trying to use makeup so my skin could look a little better then it is naturally. Without this primer it's very clear I have enlarged pores. But with using this primer on my textured skin under my makeup, it's amazing!! This primer makes me feel more confident with makeup!! Would definitely recommend to anyone!!!

Birdiegirl from Woodstown, NJ
It did help erase pores but by end of day 2 had major breakouts in the areas I applied (I limited where I applied to large pore area so I knew it was this product)
Kay from CA
looks great on bare skin i put this on if i dont have time for makeup and it makes my pores shrink and adds an intense blur to my skin. its also wonderful under makeup. should be way more HYPED.
Laurine from Asheboro, NC
I use a small amount and glide it over my face. It makes my face so soft and smooth!
aud from usa
I love it! smooths out skin is transparent. it's not matte which I like about it - I actually prefer it to porefessional. in order for a flawless base I apply a moisturizer, this primer on my t-zone, and my favourite setting powder over top. works so well for the price.
Boo from Ohio
I purchased this mote do for ju fine lines than I did gir my pores. I absolutely love it! it makes my skin so soft and works great under my foundation.
Jj from Iowa
The only way I found a great use for this is mixing it with a crushed powder blush and a moisturizer to make a cream blush
Gaby from Pasadena
Did not like it, made me break out really bad
Chow from Seattle, WA
I've been using this primer for awhile, I go for more of a dewy look and it's a great price. It has a almost slippery texture to it. I would say it has more of a medium heavy factor. So if you don't like anything heavy on your face try lightly putting on some or find a lighter primer.
Lauren N from Los Angeles, CA
I bought this because I heard it was a dupe for the benefit porefessional. First off, it is not. Porefessional goes on matte and fills pores. This goes on thick and not matte and makes your skin feel awful. On top of that, it makes my make up separate. I've used it with tinted moisturizer, light coverage foundation and full coverage foundation and it didn't work with any. There are so many amazing affordable drugstore primers and this is not one of them.
Helen from Seattle, WA
My main use for this product is to smooth my skin on days when I'm not wearing makeup. Just as it advertises, it instantly fills in pores, even my icepick acne scars. It looks semi-matte, which is my preferred finish. However, it's not the best as a primer under makeup. Because it's slippery and doesn't actually dry down, it causes foundation on top of it to easily move around and streak during the day, especially around my nose which I sometimes rub by accident. For a more tacky primer that doesn't move, I prefer The Ordinary's Silicone Primer. I am still giving this Maybelline Baby Skin five stars though, because I enjoy it and have a good use for it.
Jessica from California
Definitely would recommend this product. In my opinion it works better then the benefit porefessional primer.

This product is great to wear without makeup all year.
Christine from Iowa
I had heard this was a dupe for one of my favorite primers from The Balm. As this was a more affordable and readily available product at the time, I gave it a shot. I would not say it is an exact dupe for The Balm primer, but it was affordable and I liked the finish/results. I will continue to use it. I have tried primers that I like more - and primers that I like less - than this one.

So I am late to the primer party but I think I am here to stay. I was so pleasantly surprised by how much better my makeup looks now that I am using it. It goes on smooth and minimizes my pores. My makeup goes on better and lasts longer. I recommend this if you're not already using it. It really helps!
