Baked to perfection

This month, new makeup brand, VIVO was launched in Tesco stores up and down the country. With a great range of products and really reasonable prices, it would be well worth popping into your local store and having a look!
I'm a huge fan of baked products and anything remotely shimmery so it wasn't surprising when I fell in love with VIVO's offerings.

The packaging seems a bit dated but after the blusher dropping out of my bag, onto the pavement and surviving, it's proved it's robust! I love the galaxy-style pattern on each of the domes which make them look much more expensive-looking than they actually are, for those of you who are more accustomed to high end brands and snazzy designs.

Bronzer £5/Blusher £4 

Bronzed/Shade 2 (12g)

Rosy/Shade 2 (8g)

The pigmentation is fantastic - even more impressive, considering the cheap-as-chips prices, whilst you also seem to get quite a lot of product. I've been using the blusher every day for the last 2 weeks and there's no sign of a dip whatsoever.

Admittedly, if you're not a fan of shimmer then this isn't for you but even so, if you're on a budget, VIVO seems to like the one to watch this year!

Ahh I was waiting for someone to do a Vivo review. I wasn't completely sure whether or not to risk it, but they have some nice eye shadow quad sets I was looking at - might give them a go now :)

@Cherry - Yeah I love them!

@CHARfmb - You definitely should :)

@Michelle - Ahhh that's such a shame! Make sure you pop into a different one if you ever go on any road trips ;)

@The Girl Who Procrastinates - Glad to be of help! Yeah, their baked eyeshadows are really great too! Look out for a mini review on them on here soon :)

I'm re-vamping my makeup (which translates to actually buying some decent make-up for once!). I'll have to check out this evening in our American sized Tesco! Thank you xx

I looked at these a few days ago as i add a highlighter powder onto of my blusher and wanted something that would do both in one. xx

@MacGirl - Trip to Tesco are usually so stressful but definitely worth it if there's makeup involved right?!

@hayley86bright - The blush would probably be great for you then, really shimmery :)
