VIVO Cosmetics Baked Bronzer in Sunkissed

Since receiving VIVO’s Baked Bronzer at TOWIB, I have been using it for those early mornings when my skin looks a little less ‘pale and interesting’ and more pasty and dull. I heard most people describe this as more of highlighter than a bronzer, but on my skin it imparts a good bit of colour. I’ve been teaming it with some of Too Faced Chocolate Soleil as a contour.
I have been applying it with my MAC 190 and blending it out with my MAC 168, it has a lovely, and easy to blend texture. I’ve found the best way to wear this for me is at the top of my cheekbones, if I wear it on the apples of my cheeks it does tend to accentuate my pores.
O me it’s a gorgeous gold colour, and although it’s quite light I think it has enough warmth that it would work brilliantly as a highlighter for darker skintones, without looking ashy. If you want a pop of colour to pair with this, it looks gorgeous teamed with VIVO’s Baked Blush in Peaches and Cream.
I can see myself using this a lot over the festive season, I think it would look great for nights out with some black liner, and a red lip.
For a mere £5 this is a really versatile, and great quality product, that despite being a bronzer I would use all year round and not just in the summer. It gives a lovely glow to the skin without being obvious or overpowering. If you’ve wanted to try MAC’s Mineralize Skinfinishes but not fancied the price tage that comes with these would be a great product to try.
VIVO Cosmetics is available in selected Tesco Extra stores.
Disclosure: This product was given to me free of charge at TOWIB.
