VIVO Colour Block Palette - Enchanted: Reviewed
The Colour Block is a new release from Vivo Cosmetics and comes in two forms: The Enchanted palette, which has a lovely mix of colours from brights to neutrals and the Unprotected palette which has colours extremely similar to MUA's Undressed.
I picked Enchanted up while in Tesco the other day. It is normally £3.99, but at the moment it is on sale for just £3. I saw the Unprotected palette there too, it looks gorgeous but I have so many neutrals I couldn't get it. It pained me so much to leave it there, I may go back and get it even though its SO similar to the Undressed by MUA.
The palette has such a lovely mix of colours which are perfect for Autumn/Winter. My favourite is the lovely teal shadow. I had a little play and came up with a look using this colour which you can see above. I wasn't feeling particularly brave so used it as an accent colour with brown the main. I am currently thinking of ways to use the gorgeous burgundy colour with out looking ill or like I have been punched in the eye!
The shadows are a mix of shimmer and matte. They are quite pigmented and blend nicely, very good quality for £3.99. They last really well with or with out a primer on my non-oily lids.
I definitely recommend getting this palette. Its great if you want to experiment with colour but still has the neutrals in there.
You can purchase this palette from Tesco stores or directly from Vivos website here.
Are you a coloured shadow lover? Or are you more for the neutrals? Do you have any ideas on how I could use the burgundy colour?
