Okay, weird title of the post aside… How is everyone?! I’ve had a busy, busy week & have just managed to get myself some blogging time. I’ve ate out 3 days in a row & I feel kind of sick. I think it’s time to start eating healthy from tomorrow. So, on Friday night I met up with one of my friends for dinner & then decided to dye her hair darker. As you do, I went to Tesco with her & managed to walk out with £20 worth of shopping. I grabbed myself some VIVO cosmetics which I’m gonna share with you now!
Initially, I was just going to try the eye shaddows as they were on offer (two for £2!) but I couldn’t resist their cheek products & bronzers. Trying to limit myself as much as I could, I walked away with 5 little bits 🙂
Eye Shaddow £1.50
Baked Blush £4
The eye shadows are SUPER pigmented but also at the same time, they are very soft. Not sure if that’s actually a good thing. However, I can’t wait to try these out alone on my eyes & smoked out. I’m sure they’ll look great & with some Urban Decay Primer Potion, they won’t budge. The blush is a pretty pink which is something I’d be able to wear for a flush of colour on a daily basis. One of my favourite blushes is ELF’s Candid Coral but I’ve hit the pan on it so this will definitely replace it.
Mink looks VERY similar to my Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Illusoire so if anyone is out for a dupe, this is fraction of the price. Overall, I am happy with these products.
Baked Bronze £5
I then picked up two of their Baked Bronzers. You get a heck of a lot of product for the price you pay. The dome shaped finish means you get EXTRA product into the packaging which I’m not gonna complain about 🙂 I’ve worn Shade 3 aka ‘Healthy Glow’ for the past two days as a highlight & I have been loving it. You do need to give it a few strokes onto your face for it to show (I like a lot of highlight on my cheeks) but depends for what kind of look you go for.
I only got Sun Kissed as I thought it would look great on a tan but can’t see myself wearing it much on a normal day? However, I’m still happy with the colour & finish as a whole for the products.
I don’t think I’d travel with these as the packaging is a bit naff. I’m not a fan of clear plastic packaging… I LOVE packaging, these don’t do it for me in that respect. However, if you’re after some quick beauty fixes without breaking the bank, VIVO is definitely a brand to check out at your local Tesco.
Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend 🙂
