Maybelline Baby Skin Review Video and Swatches: Porefessional Dupe?

I first saw the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser (longest title ever!) last year on Asian beauty blogs, and couldn't wait for it to hit stateside. I finally saw it about a month ago at CVS and had to try it out. Would it instantly erase pores? Would it be a dupe for my fave primer, Benefit's The Porefessional? Watch the video to find out!

What is it?
  • A clear primer for the face that is an "instant pore eraser" (see swatch above)
  • It is similar to opaque primers, like Smashbox, but is thinner and clear. 
Where can you purchase it?
  • I've seen it in drugstores, Ulta, Bed, Bath & Beyond. 
How much is it? How much product?
  • $6-7 for .67 fl oz of product
  • Relatively inexpensive compared to many facial primers
  • Great for dry skin
  • Wonderful for an even, smooth base to apply makeup
  • Thin consistency
  • Available in drugstores
  • Portable, perfect for travel due to small size
  • Silica-based, so sensitive skin, beware (it broke me out)
  • Felt very greasy but not oily
  • Didn't sink into skin and stayed on the surface (could be pro or con)
  • Pills for some moisturizers/foundations (depends on formula)
  • My pores were very much visible and I saw no difference on my skin, even after trying it for a month using a variety of application techniques.
  • I didn't like it at all, and don't consider this a dupe, but this is just my opinion. Try it and see.
