Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser

I hate my skin. Well, I hate the texture of my skin - that sounds really weird when I say it like that. I have this 'chicken skin' thing on my jawline (as well as my neck, my arms...) and it makes it really hard for foundation to blend into my skin. Therefore, I need a pretty good primer to allow me to actually wear foundation, and so I'm on the lookout 24/7 for decent, drug-store primers that don't cost the earth. This one, from Maybelline, is pretty great. 

I don't really care about my pores that much, but I did notice a difference on my nose when I used this, so that ticks that box. The best thing about this primer is it's smoothness - it feels just like the higher-end ones with silicon (e.g. Smashbox photo finish) and it makes your skin silky smooth. I love that feeling! The primer itself is completely colourless and is like a clear gel, which rubs into your skin really easily. I find it keeps foundation on for most of the day, and it allows my foundation to blend into my skin really easily!

This is definitely a great primer if you're looking for a cheaper, good-quality product and don't want to fork out on the really expensive ones! 8/10, well done Maybelline.
