My VIVO Cosmetics Haul

Hi all and welcome to the first installment on my brand spanking new Make Up Blog! *woohoo* 
Today I finally managed to find a Tesco store relatively close to me that stocks the Vivo range of cosmetics.  

I have known about Vivo for some time and have been very keen to try their stuff, especially their baked blushers, baked bronzers and eyeshadows, but I have never been able to find a Tesco within a 30 mile radius that stocks it.  

Last weekend when I was doing a bridal make up trial the bride asked me if I could apply false eyelashes for her and I agreed. When she presented me with a box of Vivo lashes I couldn't hide my excitement and it was her that told me that her local Tesco (about 20 minutes from me) stocks Vivo!! 

I decided to wait until today to go and check the stock out and when I got there I had a real "kid in a candy store" moment.  There were baked blushers and baked bronzers, eyeshadow galore, lipstick & glosses, false eyelashes, mascaras, eyeliners, BB Cream (gutted they didn't have any in my shade!), and more besides.  

15 minutes and just over £30.00 later I now have quite a nice Vivo collection to be getting on with.  

I have done a video today of my haul (click link to view).  I have also taken several photographs, but will save them until I do my actual review but, in the meantime, here is a photo of my little collection:

I purchased the following: 
  • Baked Blush - Shade 1, Peaches & Cream
  • Baked Bronze - Shade 3, Healthy Glow
  • Diamond Sparkle Lip Gloss - Shade 1, Candy Floss 
  • Diamond Sparkle Lip Gloss - Shade 2, Summer Fruits 
  • Diamond Sparkle Lip Gloss - Shade 3, Sheer Spice 
  • Volume Mascara - Brown/Black
  • Lengthening Mascara - Black 
  • Trio Eyeshadow Palette - Be-Dazzled 
  • Ultimate Brow & Eye Kit 
  • Baked Shimmer Palette - Paparazzi 
  • Baked Shimmer Palette - Chocolate Box 

Some of the products seemed a little pricey for what they are and if it were my "daily use" brand I'm not sure I would want to be paying some of the prices.  However, if these products live up to the reputation that goes along with the Vivo/fbBeauty name then perhaps I can widen my make up allowance each month to include a couple of Vivo products...

I can't wait to get to use the products and will probably have a play with some of them over the weekend.  I will of course let you all know how I get on.  

Until next time, stay beautiful.
