MUA Pro-Base Concealer & Highlight Kit

Hello lovelies, have you all got that Friday feeling yet? I know i do as baby monster is staying at his nanny's tomorrow night so woop woop haha. Yesterday i posted my huge haul & sale picks so i have lots of new things to talk to you guys about, and the first one i had to share was the MUA concealer and highlight kit from the new pro-base range.
"Perfectly blendable camouflage for almost any skin imperfections including blemishes, scars, birthmarks, and under eye circles. Also contains highlighting cream to transform your complexion with luminescent shimmer."

So many of you will already know i have the worst dark circles around my eyes, it's a complete joke. I look like my eyes are being sucked into my skull and someone has give me two black eyes, it really is that ridiculous. So of course concealers are a huge must for me and i think it's one of the best creations around, but i have used quite a few as i haven't really found one that i was in love with and thought it done the job really well. Until now that is, i can not praise this little kit enough, i mean it's amazing. Before i got this i was using my MAC studio finish concealer, but because the woman didn't match me up that well it's a bit too orange for my complexion so i can't use as much as i need to, i know bloody annoying right. So when i saw this little kit i thought i would certainly give it a try as i was also interested in the highlighter as when using the MAC concealer i had to then use another product to highlight. I must admit although i love a lot of MUA products i didn't think it would work that well as my circles are stupidly bad, but because it was in the sale for just £2.50 i thought sod it. 

At first i wasn't completely won over because of the texture of the cream, to me it does feel a little on the oily side and at first i could notice it on my skin. However it really is perfectly blendable like it says, you don't notice any harsh lines, it looks really natural and in my opinion flawless. I picked it up in porcelain- beige as i am very pale and it's a fantastic match for my complexion. Because of this i can use however much i need to completely conceal my dark circles. I use the first cream, which is the medium shade out the three to completely banish my dark circles and then use the middle cream which is the lightest to then highlight just above my cheekbone, a tiny bit on my brow bone and cupids bow, down the side of my nose and again under my eyes. The beauty of this palette to me is that all of the creams are buildable and you can play around with them until you find what works best for you. The only slight teeny tiny problem that i have found with it, is if you rub your eye area some product does come off. But I'm not overly fussed as i hardly ever rub under my eyes anyway. 

 I have used this everyday since i have bought it and I'm very surprised that it can all but get rid of my dark circles and if it can do that it can cover up anything trust me haha. The palette does come in two other shades as well, so you should be able to find one to suite your complexion. As i say at the moment this is in the MUA sale for £2.50 but it's regular price is only £3.50 which is still an amazing price. You can pick up MUA products in selected Superdrug stores or online from their website. Have you picked this little miracle kit up yet? I hope you all have a brilliant weekend, thanks for reading and i shall see you all soon x



  1. I picked this up but not tried it yet... I was wary tbh as my Collection 2000 one I use at the moment is good but not perfect, but the colour of that one is much lighter than this mua one. Will have a play around this weekend though - thanks for the tips!

    1. I really like this one as you can build and mix the colours to your exact liking, let me know how you get along with yours :) x

  2. I hate the women at MAC counters, they could never get concealers or foundation right. For me the concealer was too light and my friends all had the same problem with their foundation!
    Lovely post btw!

    1. I must admit sadly i haven't had that great experiences with the MAC makeup artists apart from one very lovely lady who actually got my foundation spot on x
