Vivo eyeshadow trio

So I'm pretty sure you will all know about the new make up brand 'Vivo' by now, it's being doing it's rounds on Blogger and it totally deserves recognition! If you didn't know, it's a new affordable make up brand that's hit the shelves in Tesco! I could've picked up everything, because it all looks pretty amazing. But for right now I just picked up an eyeshadow trio in 'Innocence'.

On first impressions I really liked the packaging and I thought it was a great little neutral trio that would be ideal for travel, but in the back of my mind I was thinking 'oh but I bet the pigmentation is pants, or it's really chalky' so of course, like a pro blogger ;) I swatched a few in store and they were really pigmented! I snapped up 2 of them - my Mum isn't into make up at all, but she's asked for a few little bits for Christmas so I thought this would be great for her, as well as myself ;)

Here are the swatches, and you can see that they're well pigmented, and they're actually very creamy. All three shades are shimmery but not glittery which I like. Great little trio of eyeshadows on days you don't know what to wear or you don't want to be rummaging through solo eyeshadows or numerous palettes. The compliment each other perfectly and would suit any skin tones.

I just did a really, really quick and simple look this morning with it before I went off to work, so that I could let you guys know about how well they blend, wear etc...

I used the second shade all over the lid and along the lower lashline, the third shade in the crease and outer v and the first shade on the inner third/tear duct. Super quick and super easy.

On my eyelids, the eyeshadows lasted really well. They were still there at the end of the day (9.00pm) without any creasing and minimal fading - without a primer. Overall, really impressed with this range and I have my eye on some of the baked blushes!

You can find this eyeshadow trio in Tesco stores for a tiiiiny £2.50. Have you had a chance to try Vivo yet? What did you think?
