Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Review

June 12th, 2014

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

The Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser that everyone in Asia raved about has finally landed in the US!
Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer Review
Packaged in a cute-looking turquoise and pink tube, the Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer utilizes an insta-blur technology with silicone-based ingredients like Dimethicone, Dimethicone Crosspolymer and Silica Silylate to visibly smooth pores away. It can be used alone or under foundation.

The formula was a clear, fragrance-free gel that felt super velvety on the skin. With just the teeniest tiniest dot, it filled in the pores on my cheeks and made them look much less visible. It also smoothed out any dry patches I had and I loved how foundation and concealer seemed to just glide right on without pilling.

A lot of people have compared this to Smashbox’s Photo Finish Primer, even going as far as to saying that it is an exact dupe. While I do see the resemblances in terms of the texture and there are a couple identical ingredients, the Smashbox definitely made my makeup last longer than the Maybelline.

I have also read that certain people broke out from using the product, despite it being non-comedogenic. I always remove my makeup with a cleansing oil followed by a product that exfoliates and never had a problem with it clogging my pores.

Over all, Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser Primer worked great in filling and minimizing the appearance of pores just as promised. Definitely a must-try for those who love silicone-based primers, especially at this price!

Makeup Remover Secret: 5 Reasons To Use Baby Wipes!

November 30th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

Post image for Makeup Remover Secret: 5 Reasons To Use Baby Wipes!

Carmen’s question… I realize this is an icky revelation — but I frequently find myself too pooped at the end of the evening to properly wash my face. Sometimes I go to bed with my makeup still on, and I know that’s not good. I’m considering buying face wipes to at least take some of the grunge off before plunging into bed. But what about just using baby wipes? Aren’t they basically the same thing? They’re certainly cheaper!

The Right Brain’s pampered response:
Yes, Carmen, you can use baby wipes to remove makeup. Here are 5 things to think about before you baby your face:

1. Cost

Wow, what a difference! The cost of an average Baby Wipe = 5.5 cents each. Cost of an average Make Up Remover = 33 cents each

(For baby products we used the average cost of Tushies, Huggies, 7th Generation, and Pampers. For facial wipes we used Almay, Neutrogena, Chorane, and Comodynes facial wipes. Anyway you slice it, “baby” is cheaper.)

2. Cleansing ingredients

All the formulas we looked at (both baby and make up) use mild cleansers – nary a sulfate in sight. However, keep in mind that baby wipes are not built to remove the kind of heavy, waxy buildup you get with lipstick or some waterproof mascaras. (Then again, not everyone wears water proof mascara. Just to be safe, if you plan on removing eye make up, you should check with the manufacturer.) Based on looking at the formulas, it appears that the cleansing power varies by brand. Tushies, for example, appears to be very light cleansing.

3. Quality of the cloth

The texture of facial cloths and baby wipes are similar, but you might find the baby wipes are a bit big for facial use. (As with so many things in life, size does matter.) But that’s ok, folding isn’t against the law. Also, depending on the brand, you might find the baby wipes are too wet for your face.

4. Safe for skin

A hallmark of any good make up (or make up remover) is that it’s proven to be noncomedogenic. In other words, it doesn’t cause comedones, or black heads. We’ve never seen a baby wipe that makes this claim but it’s probably not a big deal. Oils are the types of ingredients that usually cause comedones and the baby wipe formulas we looked at don’t seem to contain a lot of those kind of ingredients.

5. Fragrance

If you use baby wipes to clean your face, you’ll probably find yourself smelling like baby lotion. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing, especially if you’re trying send a subliminal message to your husband/significant other. If you catch our drift. Of course, you can also buy the unscented variety.

If you’re still not convinced you should use baby wipes, you can always buy some Almay Eye Makeup Remover pads here.

I use MAC’s Brush Cleanser and baby shampoo – I prefer baby shampoo for day to day cleaning and then the brush cleanser for more thorough cleansing.

Thanks to Jessica for today’s question!

Fab Finds

March 18th, 2011

Celebrity Makeup News and Blogs:

 

Welcome to my first edition of “Fab Finds”. Fab Finds consists of items that I think are pretty fabulous. It can be people, places, things, whatever I randomly choose that is not makeup or skin care related. If you have found something to be pretty fabulous email me, I’d love to hear about it! It may make my “Fab Finds” list.

1. Adelle 21. Her latest CD is blissful listening to her smooth, seductive voice. She may be only 21, but her voice is beyond her years and a nice relief in the world of bubble gum pop from other artists her age.

2. Chelsea Baby. It seems like lately I’ve been buying several baby gifts and I love these little booties from Chelsea Baby. There are shoes for boys and girls and you can purchase additional snap-on bows for an interchangeable look. Adorable!

3. O’Shaughnessy Wine. OK, maybe I’m a little biased on this one because at my day job we did the interiors of the O’Shaughnessy Winery, but you can’t beat the exquisite taste of this award winning Cabernet Sauvignon.

4. Alex and Ani. Ever since I received one of the necklaces from Alex and Ani I have been in love with the organic, textural pieces of jewelry. Check out the bracelets – they’re size adjustable in a sophisticated way. I can’t wait to add more to my collection.

5. Dior Bagatelle Sunglasses. Ever since I saw these sunglasses on Natalie Portman in the new Miss Dior Chérie commercial I have been obsessed. I must add these retro cat-eye sunglasses to my collection.
