VIVO Cosmetics is a fairly new range available from selected Tesco stores. I was given the opportunity to try a variety of their products a while ago and never got to let everyone know my thoughts! Unfortunately I cannot pick up VIVO products from my local Tesco store, but if I could, I would have tried the whole range by now. I have included swatches with my reviews below but as they are on paper they aren't 100% accurate.
Baked Blush £4 in 'Peaches & Cream': I was recommended this by Zoe (London Lipgloss) after whinging about the discontinued MAC Stereo Rose Mineralize Skinfinish. I can't compare the two for you, but after looking at swatches I can see a definite resemblance. This baked blush has brilliant colour pay-off.
Baked Blush £4 in 'Rosy': This shade looks great on paler skin tones, but I have to be light handed with the brush! It's a very pretty shade, and I really like the simple packaging.
Blush & Highlighter Duo £2.39 in 'Sweet Peach': I have been using this one the most recently, and I prefer this finish to the Baked Blushers. I do find they don't last all day on my skin, but for £2.39 I'm not too worried about it. This colour is just perfect with NARS Laguna bronzer. It's a must have. The highlighter isn't the best, so bare that in mind when purchasing this.
Blush & Highlighter Duo £2.39 in 'Sugar Candy': Here is the other shade I received that is comparible to 'Pixie Pink' by Sleek, but with a little less pay off. It's a great shade for bringing some life to a tired face and will be perfect for the summer months.
Lipstick £1.99 in 'Barely There': The swatch for this product doesn't give it any justice. I much prefer this lipstick to any of the MAC neutrals I have, as it doesn't apply too much product and sits perfect on my lips. I find MAC lipsticks can look quite thick and can highlight chapped lips, but this just give a lovely wash of colour. I would 100% recommend this!
Lipstick £1.99 in 'Sugar Pink': I haven't used this lipstick as much as 'Barely There' as it has a less natural and wearable finish. This would be the perfect lipstick for a night out, or a special occasion. This consistency is great on this and it has good staying power for the £1.99 price tag.
Shimmer & Shine Lipgloss £1.99 in 'Frosted Pink': This is one of the only products from VIVO I haven't been pleased with. This lipgloss is a lovely colour but is far too sticky and thick to look flattering. I prefer tinted lip balms and Sleek pout polishes.
Ultimate Under Eye Concealer £3.39 in 'Light 1': This is the most fabulous under eye concealer is you have dry skin. It adds radiance at a fraction of the price of YSL Touche Eclat. In fact, I sometimes reach for this over the Touche Eclat. I would recommend this to everyone, and just wish I could get hold of a back up!
Trio Eyeshadow Palette £4 in 'Graphite Glamour': I hardly ever wear dark eyeshadows as I don't believe they compliment my pale skintone, so I must admit that this has been barely used. However, the eyeshadows are very pigmented and aren't chalky at all. I would be interested in trying a more wearable palette by VIVO, though this will be great for nights out.
Overall, I really love VIVO's blushers, lipsticks, and their concealer. If I was able to buy VIVO near me I would definitely be picking up more blushers! I am really impressed with the quality of VIVO Cosmetics, especially their lipsticks- I was in shock when finding out they were on £1.99.
