Maybelline Baby Skin is testament to how ‘blurring’ products have improved, even over the last year. It’s a soft, gel texture that you smooth over areas with large pores and it makes them appear smoother and less obvious. It totally works. I tried it over my nose where I think I have larger pores than anywhere else and it did, indeed, minimise their appearance. However, it wasn’t quite so successful on cheeks for some reason.
Maybelline Baby Skin feels very smoothing – it gave my nose an immediate mattifying effect as well as minimising the look of the pores – but if you hate that ‘silicone’ feel of products, steer clear, it is exactly that. It’s also fragrance free, and doesn’t seem to fight with your foundation either, which a lot of these blurring products have done in the past. I’d say this should be in everyone’s make-up bag as a pore perfector and at £7.99 (from January), it’s not too hard on the purse either. Just as a tip, you can use it over your foundation too, if you feel you need a top up during the day.
