Last night I made a little trip to the massive new Tesco that has opened in the town I live in – I disguised my visit by acting as my mum’s right hand woman whilst food shopping, but what I really wanted to do was check out the full Vivo make up range!
This palette drew my eye instantly – the Vivo Trio Eyeshadow Palette in Be-Dazzled. I’m a complete sucker for pink and black as a combo, and this palette was no exception!
The back of the palette gives out some instructions for the application of the eyshadow – personally, I would never follow these instructions. They suggest working the dark grey shade all the way up to the brow bone – urgh! This wasn’t the best of first impressions – how about the shadows themselves?
I do absolutely love the colour selection – and at £2.50 too, who could complain? The palette also comes with a double-ended sponge tip applicator, which I wouldn’t use but could come in handy in an emergency!
Once I’d swatched the shadows, I was impressed! The colours showed up lovely and bold on the skin without any form of primer, and once they were on, they didn’t budge! My only criticism is that they were slightly too much ‘in place’; it made them quite difficult to blend.
Nevertheless, the quality is more than expected for the price and I am really glad I bought this palette. I did pick up a few other Vivo items too – keep your eyes peeled for reviews coming soon!
Have you tried any of the Vivo make up line? What do you think to it?
