By Chayanti Mukherjee,
These days I love Makeup Academy products. They have such an amazing product list with a great price range. I have been searching for a good peach concealer but when I noticed this yellow concealer I bought it instantly. I have never tried a color concealer before but it really works well for me. Lets come to the review…..
What MUA Claims:
Individual color correcting creams suitable for a multitude of complexions.
Yellow: Brighten and conceal areas with purple tones with this soft and bendable yellow cream.
Price: INR 300/- for 3.4 g
The concealer comes with four colors, Yellow, Green, Peach, lilac. I have the shade Yellow.
My Experience with MUA Yellow Pro-Base Prime and Conceal Concealer:
MUA Pro-Base Prime and Conceal yellow Concealer comes in a small round white plastic packaging with a clear lid. Lid is a flip flop cap which is hard to open at times. This lightweight product is very handy and easy to carry but you need to careful at the time of use. It does not come with any applicator. I don’t like to put my finger in a jar type container. All the product details are given on the back of the container.
Shades and Coverage:
This product is a primer + concealer. So when you use this product on your face, you don’t need any primer. I like to pat this on my uneven areas of the face, under eye area, on pimple spots and you’ve got 2 jobs done in one go. I need to apply foundation over it otherwise its yellow tone doesn’t mix well. I use it as a base and then cover up any area that needs more coverage with my normal concealer or foundation.
This is a subtle yellow toned concealer. This product states that it reduces redness or purple tone of your face. It can also reduce unsightly blemishes. It provides medium coverage, which is good for daily use. I like medium natural looking coverage over full coverage. The yellow shade helps to 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 uneven tone. The result after using this product is a flawless and even toned skin.
A compact powder is needed to set it all perfectly. When you use a color concealer you should know the proper technique to use them. Otherwise it may make you look yellow. So hide the yellow tone with your regular foundation. After you complete your look, it gives a flawless glow to your skin.
Texture and Quality:
It has an extremely smooth and buttery texture. It blends like a dream and it takes only few minutes to settle on my skin properly. It feels very light on the skin and it brightens up the area you apply it on. It doesn’t feel sticky and is a non oily product. It suits on my oily skin fairly. I like to swipe a small amount of product on my uneven area using my stippling brush and it blends very quickly and doesn’t settle into fine lines. Also not looks cakey at all.
It absorbs onto my skin well. It also works great as an eyeshadow primer and makes the makeup last longer. You only need a very small amount which means that the 3.4g of product will stay for long. It has great moisturizing effects for its super creamy texture. I think it would work well for dry skin too. It provides a decent staying power considering its price, it stays on my oily skin for 4 -4.5 hrs. It makes my skin look healthy and soft.
Only drawback of this product is that it can’t properly cover the dark under eye circles and dark spots. Also sometimes if you apply more of this product, it has a chance to make your skin look yellow. I have an olive skin tone so it goes very well with my skin but if you are dusky then it is hard to blend properly. For its very creamy texture it always needs to be settled with powder otherwise it doesn’t stay long and makes my face oily. For dry skin I recommend using a good moisturizer underneath this.
Overall I love this product as a great base and it gives a radiant complexion. It does a great job at reducing any redness and I really recommend it as a base product. In my opinion it is a superb multifunctional daily use product.

Would I Repurchase MUA Yellow Pro-Base Prime and Conceal Concealer?
Yes definitely. Though it can’t provide full coverage, I still love this product. I actually don’t need high coverage for daily use. For me this product is value for money.
Would I Recommend MUA Yellow Pro-Base Prime and Conceal Concealer?
It is an amazing base product which gives you a bright glowing face. If you are searching for a full coverage concealer then you may skip this one. But if you are satisfied with light to medium coverage then I think you should try this at least once. Obviously it is a pocket friendly product.
