Drugstore Corrector | MUA Pro-Base

Makeup academy pro basemakeup academy probase prime and conceal swatchesMUA pro base reviewMUA probase prime and conceal reviewThis compact little palette caught my eye when I was looking for a drugstore concealer. The palette has five colours -light peach in the middle, dark peachy brown in top left, next to it is a bluish purple, a shade of pistachio green in bottom left and a yellow in bottom right. The bluish purple, green and yellow look mighty pastely. Let me save you some reading, this is not going to work for anyone over NC30/NW25. The tone of these colours are too light. Except the lightest peach, in the middle, all the colours are noticeable pigmented but still remain sheer-looking. The slippery emollient base blends nicely with fingers. It is possible to build up the colours. The lightest peach is the least pigmented one and is described as a “highlight”. Someone with fair to very pale skin might find use out of this one, didn’t work for me. None of them have any shimmer or any shine, they are all flat and matte.

I would treat it more like a corrector. I have used the yellow to warm up some of my foundations and the light peach to lighten. It works after a lot of blending, but the result is slightly flat and unnatural. I had a ton of fun playing with this, think it’s time to dump it though. It’s not a bad product for £4, just not the right shade, tone for me.
