Vivo Cosmetics has landed, people! Well, it has landed in my local Tesco and I was so spoilt for choice that I left the store with swatches all over my hands and arms but only three items in my bag. If you read my previous post on the Vivo Cosmetics Trio Eyeshadow Palette then you'll know that the brand is relatively new to the market and was created by the brains behind the Superdrug MUA range which is all priced at £1. The Tesco version isn't as cheap as that and all the products are different prices but they are still pretty good quality so I can see myself spending more time browsing the section next time.
Like a kid in a sweet shop, or those Pic n Mix thingys that we have in the U.K, I wasn't too sure what to go for because there is just so much to choose from. There are baked eyeshadow and blush palettes, trio eyeshadow palettes, lipsticks, lip glosses, single eyeshadows, bronzers, blushers, highlighters and so on but I settled on one of the baked blushers, a blush and highlighting duo as well as one single eyeshadow - How good am I!? I'm trying a new thing of "Do I really need it?" before I put things in to my basket and although I probably don't need 2 new blushers, the blogging part of my brain jumped in and said that I did because I had to report back to you lot. What can I say, I'm a slave to beauty.
Instead of doing one bulk review on what I bought, I decided to split them up so I can break each product down and show you what it looks like without overdosing on photos.
This is the Baked Blush in Peaches & Cream:
The packaging is pretty standard and definitely better quality than the MUA range from Superdrug so I guess that is wear our extra pounds and pennies have gone. The back of the packaging lists all the ingredients and a quick overview of the product, ya'know just in case someone doesn't quite know what to do with a blush.
Peaches & Cream reminds me of Stereo Rose by MAC which was a limited edition MSF last year and has been much loved in my collection but this is definitely a lighter version and doesn't swatch as pink as the MAC version. It also appears to be very similar in colour to the Natio Powder Blush in Peach Glow which I featured on here a few months ago. There is a very subtle pearlised finish to the blush which gives a nice glow when applied and looks way better when worn than it does in the swatch above.
