Whilst I was in Tesco, super late at night picking up paper I saw the new Vivo stand with quite a few new products on and I was drawn to this palette. It was £3.00 and you get 12 shadows. I need another neutral palette like I need a hole in the head. But I thought this would be great for travelling as its compact and really slim.
The colours are really intense and pigmented. Not what you would expect for the price. They are a little powdery but nothing you cant tap off. As you can see from the back of the palette all the shades are named which is nice as often lesser expensive brands tend to number their colours and I don’t like that. I like them to have names.
For £3.00 you get a lovely range of colours and finishes. There are 3 matte colours and the rest have an almost frost finish to them, they’re really pretty. I found they blended well if you take your time and work them – but you get a lovely finish and many of these shades can create a smokey eye. As I said the colours are really pigmented.

I think my favourite colours from this Unprotected Palette are Engage and Adore – but they are all nice. Its great to see a Drugstore palette with matte shades. I’m really impressed with the quality of the shadows. They are quite creamy and rich, you get 8.4g of product for £3 which is really great value.
Vivo have a really good range of products int their collection, I already love using their Brow palette and their baked blushes. Their range is available in larger Tesco Stores and online at vivocosmetics.co.uk if you have’t already you should check them out they are always doing great deals.
