If you want cheap and cheerful cosmetics that still manage to pack a punch in terms of pigmentation and quality, you won’t go far wrong with VIVO Cosmetics. Today I’ll be having a look at their Pearl and Matte Shadows. I’ve got Shades Goddess, Golden Leaf and Rich Chocolate to review.
All three shades are very pigmented, but have that slightly greasy feeling you can find with some cheaper shadows. This does mean however that they are very easy to blend and aren’t chalky. I find the best way to work with this type of shadow is to pack it on with a dense brush or even you’re finger and then use a fluffy brush to blend it out.
A quick note on the matte shade, the texture is slightly drier than the pearl shades, but if you use a soft fluffy brush to apply and blend it, it applies beautifully.
For £1.50 I don’t think you can go wrong with these, and with all the great high-street eyeshadows being released of late, I’m far more likely to be itching to get myself to Superdrug, Boots or Tesco than Debenhams or John Lewis.
How beautiful are those shades? I really love all of these shades together, they make for a lovely earth toned smoky eye! There’s a lot of great combinations to be had with VIVO’s eyeshadows, and when you can get three shades for £4.50 you can’t lose!
