Hello Lovelies, 

In today post I'm doing a comparaison on two very talked product: Benefit POREfessional Primer and Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser. Some people said they are not dupe and I think they are king of are. 


Packaging

I do prefer the Benefit packaging, it has this 50's pin up style. In the other side, I'm not really a fan but I rarely love any of Maybelline packaging. The letters are too big, kind of cheap looking. The thing I don't like for both is the end of the bottle. I forget to picture it both is big and because of that I always take too much product even if I'm careful and you can't put it back in the bottle. But from what I've seen on the Internet Maybelline primer have two kind of cap a thiner and this I got. I would have prefer the thiner one.

Cover the pores?


To be honest, I've never really care about my pores showing until the POREfessional came out and since then you can find a thousand product how to make them disapear. But do they really? I highly doubt it. As much I love these primer, they don't do anything for my pores. But I love them as primers because they make my makeup last longer. But this is my opinion, some people said it worked for them, just not for me. So if I had to choose only one of these, it will be the Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser because it almost does the exact same thing as the Benefit POREfessional but at one third of the price. At the end of the day, they are both silicone primer. 

I have notice one thing with primers, I found that they worked better when you use them with same brand product. For example, my NARS primer ( I have a blank on which one) I tought I hate it when I first tried it and then again when I went to purchase my Pure Radiant Tinted moisturizer at the counter, the lady gave me a little sample and my opinion change. It was better than I tought.

Consistency


You can see that the consistency is not the same. The Maybelline one is transparent and Benefit quit beige. On the packaging they said that you could wear it alone but for me it's not an option because it leave a white cast on my face and I don't want to go out looking crazy. I don't like to wear it and then go directly apply my foundation. I need to wear something in between. My MAC Fix +. It helps smoothen my skin. On the other hand, you can wear the Pore Eraser with or without makeup with any problem because like I said, it's transparent. It's also more ''silky''. Both of these product are a bit drying  (this come from someone with oily skin) and they are not heavy at all.

  1. I haven't tried either of these products. I am abit wary of the whole pore control thing. Feel like its just a marketing ploy. This was a great informative comparison though! I may look into the PoreFessional now!
