VIVO Cosmetics - Eyes Of Gold

Hey loves... so today I finally sat down and had a play with the goodies kindly given to us bloggers at 'TOWIB' event on Saturday 15th Oct.



I have heard a lot about these products from reading other blog post, so I was super excited to finally be able to try them out myself, since currently they ARE NOT available in any of my local Tescos - no bueno!!!

Packaging wise, its very simple but I like it... I didnt think the colour intensity would be too great, BUT! boy am I shocked and proven wrong!!! they glide on sooooo smoothly and actually the Gold had a slight creamy texture... I absolutely love these shadows!!! VIVO if your reading this, feel free to send me some free shadows in any other color!!! lol (a girl can dream...gta be cheeky once in a while too)

I was slightly dubious about the mascara, I am a huuuuuge fan of my L'Oreal Telescopic, so in trying VIVO Black Lengthening Mascara I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised AGAIN! at how good it was... there are no clumps, my lashes feel elongated and fanned out... exactly the look that I love!

Now let me tell you about the VIVO Sunkissed Bronze (shade 1)!!! wooooo ladies this is the ish!!! I LOVE IT!!! its great for using as a highlight on the cheek bones, and I also dabbed a bit (using my fingers) on my cupids bow and just on the lower lip line to make my full lips look fuller... I love me some full lucious lips!!! I am telling you this is most defo going to be a FAVOURITE among many!!! and will not leave my makeup kit!!! I just cant wait until I can actually go to my local Tesco to stock up on some more!!! (VIVO can I make it any clearer how much I NEED you guys to be in Tescos Old Kent Road!!???)

As for the VIVO Black Kohl, I have to say that I will from now on be getting these instead of my usual Rimmel Kohl Pencil... the VIVO Black Kohl is so creamy, super blendable, and does not tug at the delicate skin on the eyelid AT ALL... usually when you apply a pencil over an eyeshadow, you need to really go over it before you get good colour intensity, well not with the VIVO Black Kohl!!! it just glides on perfectly!!! absolutely love it!!

The eyeshadows where perfect, I used the Goddess Pearl all over my eyelid, in the inner corners and under the lower lash line... I also used it on the brow bone... I have to mention that almost 2hrs after application, there is no sign of creasing... usually without an actual primer, my eyeshadows tend to crease BADLY!! ... on this ocasion, all I used before applying the eyeshadows was my Barbara Daly eyeshadow stick (which i find is pretty good at making other eyeshadows stay, even though its not actually a primer) ... the Rich Chocolate shade was perfect to put on the crease, I also blended this well and again no creasing!! since its a MATTE chocolate brown, I used it to fill in my eyebrows, and it did a pretty good job.

In conclusion, I WOULD MOST DEFINATELY recommend VIVO Cosmetics... I just wish they where accessible to all LIKE RIGHT NOW!! I really want to get a hold of the other eyeshadows, as well as the lashes, and the liquid highlighter which comes in a big tube for only £5.00!! I guess I just have to be patient and wait!!

below are a few pics of my entire look... as well as a pic of the other products I used to create my Eyes of Gold look... this will also form part of my entry to the VIVO competition...
