Makeup Academy Pro-Base Prime & Conceal : Review , Swatch

August 14, 2014

Hi girls,

Hope you are having a great time. I am extremely sorry for being so irregular. I am not keeping well .. Viral Attack! sad But I thought no matter what I am going to do a post today. Today I am going to talk about a product which I have been loving completely and it is MUA Pro-Base Prime & Conceal . If you have been following my blog then you have already seen me using this in my smokey grey eye makeup tutorial and declaring it as my fav in July favorites post.

Price : £.1.50 ( Rs.150 ) laugh
Quantity : 3.4 gm




What  MUA claims?

Rid yourself of redness once and for all!

Our Prime & Conceal colour corrector is a yellow tone to counteract that redness around your eyes and will also tone down blemishes. Apply to your eyelids to give yourself a clean slate to create those amazing eye looks!

Everyone suffers from that annoying blemish that pops up at exactly the wrong time, no matter what you do that redness just shines through – not anymore! Using your F3 Concealer Brush dab Prime & Conceal over the area and blend around it, then apply your foundation. There you go! Your flawless complexion has returned!







It comes in a small plastic pan which has a transparent lid with product’s name and brand engraved on it. It clicks as you open or close the lid. The container is light weight, easy to carry but not durable. I find it very fragile so I have to be very careful while using it.  But if we look at the price, I think the packaging is pretty decent.


My Experience

Ok ! I can’t wait to say this.. I AM in LOVE with this PRODUCT. This is a subtle yellow toned ‘primer + concealer’ as claimed by Makeup academy which has an extremely smooth and buttery texture. Because of the creamy consistency, it provides light to medium coverage. The yellow hue it imparts, helps combat the redness on the face and hides the dark circles to some extent. So if you have really dark under eye circles, this might not be the one for you. It doesn’t completely cover blemishes and acne but just tones down the discoloration. I use it over my foundation/CC/BB cream as otherwise it tames away the yellow tone a little while blending the foundation. I use it as a base and then cover up any blemish that needs more coverage, with my normal concealer.

Now, Let me tell you why I like it so much. First reason for the love I have for this product is because it feels very light on the skin and it just brightens up the area you apply it on. I love how it melts onto my skin without creasing or setting into the fine lines. It blends like a dream and seeps into the skin in no time. It doesn’t feel sticky and it doesn’t break me out at all, so ladies if you have oily skin like me .. trust me you are going to love it. I like to sweep a small amount of it all over my face using my stippling brush and I apply a little extra where I need more ( to be specific, under my eyes and acne spots) . I focus the application more at my cheekbones, forehead, chin and nose to highlight the area. There have been times when I just use this over my moisturizer, set it with my face powder and my face GLOWS *yess* I use it over my dark circles  and my eyes look wide awake laugh . It works great as a base for eyeshadows and makes the makeup last longer. The color should be good for most Indian skin tones. With this product on my face, I get that beautiful healthy glow and I look more fresh, even if I just woke up five minutes back.

It works great for oily skin like mine and I think it would also work well for those of you who have dry skin. It acts as a great base product and gives you radiant complexion by which the effort needed for the rest of the makeup is reduced to a great extent. In my opinion it is a superb multifunctional product which super easy and quick to use , just dip in your brush into the product and swirl it all over.

Check out the swatches down below, and see how great this product blends into my skin, without leaving any unsightly yellow tones!

How to Use :

  • Apply your favorite foundation on a well moisturized face.
  • Dab and blend away MUA pro-base prime and conceal all over your face.
  • Set it in place with a face powder .










Overall Verdict

It is an amazing base product which gives you a bright glowing face in a matter of seconds. For me this product is value for money. I recommend using a good moisturizer underneath this. I think you should try this atleast once smile I will again say.. I LOVE IT.

So girls, what do you think ? Ever tried it ? Will you pick it up ? Don’t forget to leave your wonderful comments smile

Love  *kiss*

  • Reply Sunny August 15, 2014 at 12:35 pm

    Hey Purva, this sounds like quite a multi-tasker! I personally prefer something peachy for the undereye area, but I could probably use this for other imperfections!

    • Reply planetbeauties August 17, 2014 at 4:55 pm

      Hey sunny ,
      I have been wanting to try peachy toned concealer too but yellow works quite well for the redness around my eyes. I have been loving this one so much smile
