Vivo Eyeshadow Trio - Green with Envy


I recently picked up this Vivo Trio whilst doing my weekly food shop (hurrah for sneaky supermarket make-up shopping!) and wanted to do a review on it!

I'm a sucker for green eyeshadows! So when I swatched these instore this was swiftly popped in my basket!

The packaging is basic; black, fairly study and wipe clean. There are little 'peep-holes' so you can see the colours without opening the packaging which is handy!

The shadows themselves are great quality. The shades are pigmented and smooth to apply. They are also not too soft in the pan and I haven't experienced much fall-out with these either. I also love the selection of colours; a soft sage green, a darker leafy green and a blackened dark green.

I personally haven't followed in instructions given on the packaging as to the placement of the colours (which suggests using the sage green on your brow bone?!?!). I can see what they've tried to do...but it doesn't really work...

Anywhoo apart from that I really like this trio and can see many different combinations on my eyes!

Here is a quick look I did yesterday. I basically used the lightest green all over the lid and a teeny bit of the dark green on the outer corner..nothing too fancy for a Sunday afternoon! :)

You can pick these up in Tesco, priced at just £2.50.

Quick Bright FOTN

Hello all!

So believe it or not I'm off out to play darts with Darren...I'm just a beginner but he bought some lovely pink darts for Christmas so we are off out for a few games! Here is a few pictures that I quickly snapped of my make up!

I dug out my un-used Sleek Curaçao palette and the bright blue and purple immediately stood out! It looks much more vivid in person!

Have a great weekend! :)

Monday Manicure

I've been slacking on the blog front...I have so many ideas but no time to write them and no daylight to take half-decent pictures! I want to do my top products of 2011 next, so keep your eyes peeled for that!

Anywhoo, I'm here today with my Monday Manicure, this will be a sporadic feature on my blog. I tend to paint my nails on a Sunday night ready for work on Monday so I thought I'd share them with you!

This Monday I'm wearing Nails Inc Oxford Circus - a light pink cream with Deborah Lipmann's Candy Shop - a milky pink with multi coloured and multi sized glitter over the top. It's so inappropriate for the workplace but it makes me happy when I look at it!

Here's a close-up using my trusty iPhone camera! Slightly blurry but you can see all the lovely glittery bits!

It kinda reminds me of those donuts that Homer Simpson loves...

What's your Monday manicure?
