Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pink Transformer Review

July 02, 2018

Hi, how are you guys doing? I'm still enjoying my semester break holiday at home with the family even though some of my friends are already planning to go back to Jogja to take care of some things. I hate having to go back to Jogja, honestly. That city has put so much burden on me that I feel like it's the biggest reason why my depression has gotten so much worse for the last few months. My main life goal for the next one year is to graduate from college, I have to graduate soon. And I'm just sad because my high school friends are graduating this August and I will be the only one left who still have to whip my ass to make a thesis. This kind of environment used to motivate me, but in this age? It just brings me down.

So that's a peek into my current life situation. Today's post will be yet another beauty and make-up review of my recent purchase; the Maybelline Baby Skin pink primer. So even after all this time wearing this and that, I don't have a single primer. I never wear my foundation or concealer with a primer because I didn't have one... I really don't know what to buy and where to start. And so I just go down to Maybelline because I remember they have this blue primer thing. I tried it once on my skin and it's so silicon-y and I'm not really sure it's going to work wonder with my T-zone because silicone-like primer tend to make my face super oily. But they run out the tester for the pink one so I couldn't try it out. But still, I bagged it home just because I'm in dire need of a primer. I smell it and it reminds me with that pink packaging day cream from Pond's.

I'm also very intrigued to buy this one because it feels very hydrating against my skin and it has SPF 35. I don't know if it's true or if it actually works but nyeeeaaaahhhhh. At least I do feel hydrated and that's important. I bought this on the counter and it costs me IDR 89.000. It's very cheap for a primer and gives me enough room to try a new one in case this one doesn't work out. I ask my friends for any recommendation because I feel like this 'primer' doesn't act like a primer to my skin aside from hydrating it. Some say I should try the one from Studio Tropik, or Nyx Angel Veil, Emina's newly launched primer, and Make Over. What about you? Do you have any recommendation for me?

Unlike the blue one with its silicone-like texture, this one is a cream. It feels so much more moisturizing on my skin and it doesn't make my T-zone super oily like the blue one does. Although I'm not really sure if this prepares my skin for make-up but it gives a subtle base for the foundation to stick around. Not to mention because it adds a little shimmer and has SPF so it's a bonus point. But I'm down to try new primer in the near future so this one is probably a pass because I don't feel any changes on my make-up longevity.
