Until recently, I had only ever used the eyeshadow palettes by Makeup Academy. The other week all make up was on 3 for 2 at Superdrug and I was looking for a cheap and reliable primer that wouldn’t break the bank! So I bought three MUA Primers to try, here I discuss with you what I thought about them!
1. MUA Pro-Base Eye Primer – £2.50 Superdrug
This eye primer is amazing. I wanted something that I could apply lightly to my eyelids under my eyeshadow to make it pop without having to be too heavy with my concealer, and it does the job! It is a lightweight formulation that is totally buildable and it doesn’t crease giving me the perfect base for all sorts of different eyeshadow. Well worth the price!
2. MUA Pro-Base Primer – £4.00 MUAstore.co.uk
I was a little disappointed with this one, it was a little watery for my liking. I like to feel a primer and this one just feels like an extremely light moisturiser. I don’t think it made a difference to my foundation in terms filling in the lines on my face making me look flawless but I feel like as it dries to a lovely matte finish, it helped to combat some of the oil I normally have to blot throughout the day. I won’t be buying it again, but if you want something light this primer this is definitely one for you!
3. MUA Undress Your Skin Flawless Primer -£5.00 Superdrug
This is my favourite of all three. It’s a clear liquid, thicker than the Pro Base Primer and it leaves your skin velvety smooth. I’m using it everyday at the moment, applying it after my mattifying moisturiser. With this my foundation does look flawless because it helps to fill in all my imperfections. I find that when I wear this, the oil that has sometimes come back to haunt me throughout the day is nowhere near as bad as when I don’t use this primer. It’s great value for money and a little bit goes a long way. I mainly apply this to my chin, nose and forehead wiping any leftover product around the rest of my face!
Have you tried any primers from MUA? Can you recommend any other products by them for me to try?
