VIVO Radiant Boost Highlighter

Today I am doing a quick review of the VIVO Radiant Boost Highlighter... 

 I love the packaging, the product is easy to apply with the brush, however I would recommend dabbing a few dots under the eye, then tapping/smoothing it out with your finger...

the consistency is quite creamy, and has a nice 'pinkish' shade which is great for concealing dark circles as well as giving a nice brightening effect.

I think its a pretty good buy if your on a budget, if I had to give it a mark out of 10, I'd probably give it an 8.

Hope this was helpful if you have been indecisive on whether to get it or not.

sheesh the last couple of days, week actually, has been INTENSE!!! After being picked as a finalist for the TOWIB & VIVO competitiion (which I was totally amazed by!) I have been working hard to get those votes, people have been so amazing and so positive, that I ended up with the winning votes of 370 people!!! UH-MAZING!!!!

the task in case some of you have no idea what I am talking about, was to recreate Karla Powells 'Eyes of Gold' using VIVO products which she demonstrated at the TOWIB event back in October. I got home that night, did my look, never in a million years thinking I would be picked, and submitted what would be my winning entry, which you can see below 

The VIVO products are fantastic for anyone looking for great makeup at a budget! honestly, just because they are affordable, does not mean that VIVO have lacked in product pay off! the eyeshadows are gorgeous to work with, and their Khol pencil is even better than my much loved Rimmel Khol Pencil Liner.

VIVO is currently exclusive to TESCO, I still have not seen them in any of my local ones (so sad boohhooo) but if you come across VIVO in your local tesco, PLEASE PLEASE stop and take notice!!! Their baked bronzer/highlighter shown in the pic, is UH-MAZING! and their matte brown eye shadow which I used in the crease and outer 'V' of my look, was also used to fill in my brows!

Below is what VIVO are sending me in the post as part of my prize! was not expecting the products so that is an added bonus of which I am over the moon!!! (que emociooonnnnn!!!!) I cannot wait to receive them and give the rest of the products a go, will hopefully do a few posts with reviews, and will also do a few reviews based on what I purchase with the gift card at Superdrugs.

Lasty, I would like to say cogratulations to the other 2 finalists, they both had beautiful makeup looks as well!

Saima from did the Twilight inspired halloween look...
Emma from did the Winter Bold Lip look...

I will be running a competition as a sign of appreciation, so watch out for details on my facebook page, as well as Twitter!!

VIVO thank you so much once again!!

Dont forget people, if you are in TESCOS, watch out for VIVO cosmetics!!

VOLUMIZING PRODUCTS - PhytoVolume Actif, John Frieda Luxurious Volume and Garnier Crystal Resist Hairspray

Hey ladies... so I have been testing out a few hair products for the past few days, they are Volumizing products.

I have quite fine hair, and I am forever looking at products that will give me good volume when I blow dry...
For a few years I have been using PhytoVolume Actif, and although I do like it, I wanted to experiment with a different product and see how it would compare.

JOHN FRIEDA COLLECTION - Luxurious Volume (Thermo Protect) 
as far as volume is concerned, I have to give it a 9/10 ... however, the only thing I didnt like was how my hair felt around the roots once dry. It felt a little sticky... but the volume lasted the whole day/night... so overal I have to say i do like it, and would defo recommend it.

GARNIER FRUCTIS STYLE - Crystal Resist Hairspray 
This hair spray is amazing, have to give it a 10/10 I loved how you get just enough product out without it all coming out at once and concentrating on one section as some hairsprays do (i know its the nozzel that sucks) but it also doesnt feel as sticky as some hair sprays do, and doesnt leave residue either. I used this on 2 clients hair to hold their curls, and they both had curls in tact even the next day.

Compared to the John Frieda Volume lotion, this one isnt as good. Even though its more expensive, volume wise it gives probably half as much volume. However, what I do like is that it doesnt feel as sticky as the John Frieda volume lotion. I would still recommend this product, but for half the price you can get better results from the John Frieda Volume Lotion, plus it protects from heat when styling.

I bought the John Frieda Volume Lotion & the Fructis Hairspray from Tescos supermarket.
Phyto products are available in Selfridges, John Lewis, pharmacies, salons and also from, and other online stockists.

Muuaahhh JennJenn.
