VIVO cosmetics week - part 3!

Hi guys! Hope you're enjoying our VIVO week as much as we are. Today we will be looking at the VIVO baked blush in Rouge Shimmer, shade 4. This retails for approx £4 for 8g in selected Tesco stores.

The first thing you notice about this baked blush is it really is baked! It looks very similar to some high end products we have used before like Laura Geller. There is a lovely shine to the colour which hints at the highlighter being mixed into the product. Like similar products, you cannot really tell how much product is in there until you start using it, so not sure how long this would last.

The product has a good consistency, indicating it will stay on the face well once applied. We really liked this colour, and although it looks quite dark in the compact, you can see from the swatch that the colour is much lighter and more 'english rose'.

We applied the blush to the apples of the cheeks in light sweeping motions with a big blusher brush. This brought colour to the part of the face where the sun would hit, giving a lovely natural glow, perfect for this time of year.

This product is so lovely to use, and the final effect of the blush is one we were really happy with. Often blushes can produce a clown like affect that does not look natural and you would not feel comfortable wearing in public. This had a brilliant finish and we are looking forward to adding it to our daily make up routine.

With this product, the VIVO brand is really punching above its weight...and its price tag.

Join us next time as we look at adding colour to the eyes!

Stay Beautiful!
