Oh hello! Look who it is, just Maybelline churning out a baby lips follow-up act! Whada ya know! It’s fair to say that I have far more than what would be deemed necessary, when it comes to Maybelline baby lips, so obviously the new Maybelline Baby Skin had to join my little baby family. Yeah, that’s weird. I have to say, I had to hit up more than one CVS to find this still in stock – obviously this is hot news on the beauty scene.
So the idea of this product is that it gives you beautiful ‘baby’ skin, as when you apply this, it will minimise pores and create smooth soft looking skin. It’s clear in consistency and very similar to the L’Oreal Miracle Blur, but I’ve got to say I prefer the Maybelline already. Once you apply this it really does minimise pores. It doesn’t get rid of them completely – obvs – (it’s not magic) but it makes a darn great effort at making them appear smaller. It’s also pretty light weight and this has been tested in Florida humidity FYI! This product says that you can use it alone, but honestly my skin isn’t good enough for that, and if yours is – keep that to yourself! This smooths on clear, and makes a great base for foundation or powder, but what I particularly liked, was that it reduced shine. Always a plus in my book.
It also claims to be non- comedogneic and fragrance free – I’m no cosmetic chemist but from a quick scan of the ingredients none of the typical ‘baddy’ ingredients jump out at me. This doesn’t even contain alcohol which a lot of budget buys do!
All in all I like this baby! Is it necessary? Not really. Is it nice – sure! Keep this product for the weekend though- you don’t need to be adding another item into your weekday make-up routine!
