Maybelline Baby Skin

Who else was excited to see the launch of Maybelline Baby Skin? I always find it really hard to find good primers at reasonable prices so I was super excited to try Baby Skin out as soon as I could get my hands on it...


Until recently I used the Smashbox Photo Finish Primer which some people hate because of its sticky, silicone-y feel, and others love due to the velvety smooth texture that it leaves after application.



Well if you like Smashbox Photo Finish Primer, then you'll love this. It is pretty much an exact dupe with the same clear gel-like consistency but for under a third of the price! (It's £7.99 at the moment but if you buy one you can get the second half price!)

I would say that this is probably aimed more at normal to oily skin because it leaves quite a matte texture. However, I have normal to dry skin and love a dewy finish. Why then would I use this product I hear you asking me? The reason I love it is because it keeps everything in place, minimizes pores and provides a flawless finish. But to make my skin look dewy I'll often add a cream blush or highlighter so that I "glow" in the right places (no-one wants a shiny forehead or chin right?).

So for a high street primer that won't break the bank, I'd recommend giving Baby Skin a go!

  2. I've heard a lot about this, sounds intriguing! I need a more matte one for everyday as I have been using the Laura Mercier radiance one, but it feels like a 'special occasion' primer, if there ever was one! Lovely review ... *runs off to Boots* ...

    1. Yeah I would say it's definitely more of a matte finish. I've been dying to try the Laura Mercier one, is it good? Awww thank you! x
