VIVO Pearl eyeshadow: Golden Leaf and Dusky Pink

(You may have seen this post over on Clouds and Cuticle Oil when I did a guest post for her. I thought I would post it on here too so that those of you that don't read her blog can still see how fab Vivo's eyeshadows are. And if that applies to you....why are you not following her blog!? It's fab!)

Vivo for Tesco is a makeup brand that I quite frankly adore! My main blog ethos is affordable luxuries, and everyday things that make you smile. These eye shadows from Vivo cost a small sum of £1.50 (Crazy I know!) So being the makeup lover I am, I obviously bought two!
A green shade called 'Golden Leaf' and a pinky/nude shade called 'Dusky Pink'.
Firstly the packaging. The case open and locks securely which is a must as I'm always worried I will smash the eyeshadow pan. The packaging is fuss, no hassle and easy to view the colour!

The pigmentation of them is truly fab! You can see from the swatches just how pigmented they are and how beautiful the colours are. My favourite out of the two has to be the green. It is a very shimmery colour, that glistens stunningly when you catch it in the sunlight! It also has very subtle purple undertones to it...overall I just think It's a really nice colour that would look amazing on a green smoky eye.

Onto the pink.I bought this shade as it's such a beautiful, ballet like pink! I have been wearing this shade in allot of places on my lid, playing about with colours like this is such fun and you can create some really beautiful looks if you just play around with them. I also wore this colour on my cheeks once as a blush and it worked really nicely as it blends really well.

Overall I would really recommend Vivo's pearl eye shadows. For the price, you may expect them to not be that great quality, but you would be ever so wrong in thinking so!
