I am always on the hunt for beauty brands that span both low and high end. Most of us just cannot afford to buy high end all the time and where possible its great to get a cheaper alternative esp when the cheaper product is better. This isn’t always the case i know, but there are many YouTube videos about dupe products. I love watching them. Let me know if you have any great dupes for expensive products id love to hear about them.
I am road testing a few of Tesco’s cosmetics range called Vivo, i pick up a couple of items each time i am in doing my food shopping. They are really good value and have quite sleek packaging for a low end beauty item. So i picked up their Ultimate Brow and Eye Kit, two Eye Liners and a Baked Shimmer Palette with 4 eye-shadows and a blush.
The Baked Shimmer Palette in Chocolate Box is so nice and will be perfect for the spring. I thought the colours were rich and pigmented. I have been using this for about a week now, the eyeshadows wear really well and with a primer last all day. The blush is nice and fresh looking if used lightly. It gives you that glowing look without being sparkly. I really recommend this palette
You will have to excuse my dry skin, winter kills my hands – but i really wanted to swatch the colours for you. Sorry i forgot to swatch the blush!
I have only used the eyebrow kit once & it was good,the colour range is good i use the darkest shade as have dark brows, but i want to use it a little more before i give you my opinion, same with the eyeliners. They seem really creamy and glide on with no pulling of the skin. Colours are deep and if you set them with a shadow stay on well.
Prices for each product are
1. Ultimate Baked Shimmer Palette in Chocolate Box £6
2. Ultimate Brow and Eye Kit £5
3. Eyeliners £1.50
