Hi all makeup and beauty lovers! It has only been one and half year since I have started doing and learning makeup. Until last month, I needed no concealer or rather I did not dare to buy it.

My Experience with MUA Pro-Base Conceal & Brighten Kit Natural- Medium Rose:
I have medium to whitish skin tone with yellow under base. Since, I have the jaundice type of skin tone, I thought pinkish shades will better balance my skin out and I was right! Although I do not have any acne spots, I do have dark circles around my eyes and dark patch around my mouth. Now, let’s see how this concealer and highlighter kit suited me.
This kit has three shades, to the right; there is a pinkish natural shade with tad shimmers in it. In the middle, there is a light neutral shade without shimmers and in the left; there is a shade which is little bit darker than the middle shade, also without shimmers.
The left two shades are for concealing and the right shade is for highlighting (as it has shimmers in it). For my skin, I use the far left shade to cover my spots and circles and then I mix the middle and left shade to cover the areas seamlessly. After, doing my base makeup, I apply the highlighter right on the area just bellow my eyes and above my eye brows and other areas like on my nose bridge and my temple.
The texture is very creamy and in the right consistency. It is not patchy or dry, in fact, it blends easily and seamlessly. It never makes my skin oily or greasy and stays all the time. I do have some issues with makeup products with shimmers, but, this highlighter has very mild shimmers which does not bother me at all.
I am very much satisfied with the application on my dark circle eyes area, but it failed to amaze me while applying it on my dark patch around my mouth. It somehow creates an ashy look which is not at all acceptable! I used this concealer on one of my family member to cover chicken pox, and it may sound weird that this kit covered the spots better than MAC concealer palette!
Overall, I think this concealer and highlight kit is very much useful and easy to use for beginners like me.
