This isn’t a review, just wanted to share some new makeup I recently got, with you guys. Vivo is a Nigerian Makeup brand and I was sent a few of their products to try out. You can read my initial thoughts after the pictures.
|L-R: Mineral Powder Foundation ‘Sunlit’ NGN3000 | Pressed Pigments ‘Palette 05’ NGN5,500 | Invisible Blotting Powder NGN3000| Safari Mineral Bronzer ‘Congo’ NGN4,000|
|Lip Lock NGN2,500|
|Liquid Lipsticks – NGN3,000|
So far, my favourite products are the foundation stick, the gel liner & the liquid lipsticks.
|Stick Foundation – NGN3,500|
I’m actually impressed that they managed to correctly match me to their foundation and all I did was provide my shade in MAC’s Studio Fix Fluid foundation. It’s a stick foundation and I’m still trying out different application techniques on it. I tried out the Real Techniques ‘Expert Face Brush’ all through last week, and this week I’m using a damp beauty blender. Day 3 of using the beautyblender and I think I prefer it. The right application technique makes a HUGE difference in how a product performs on your face in terms of blending and staying-power.
|Gel Liner – NGN3,000|
My second-favourite product, the gel liner, has the most divine texture.. so far. I say this, because you know gel liners tend to get dry after a short while, so the test is to see how long this maintains it’s nice creamy texture. In terms of intensity, it isn’t the blackest-black gel liner in my stash, but I still reach for it because I LOVE the texture.
With the liquid lipsticks, I have only tried out ‘Haute Cocoa’ and one thing you should note is it isn’t matte. I have become so used to all these liquid lipsticks being matte, that I assumed these were matte as well, but they aren’t, which I must say, was a pleasant surprise. You can already tell from my swatches that they are super-pigmented.
I may possibly have a full review up on some of these products, but if you would like to browse more products from Vivo makeup or possibly purchase something, I have provided all the information you need below
