It’s hard not to have heard of VIVO since there launch back in September, they are a range exclusive to Tescos’ celebrating colour and bringing a catwalk inspired looks to the shelves of our local stores. And if that isn’t thrilling enough then you just need to take a look at the prices, which are sure to have you doing a double take.
For the past month I have been road testing 3 of their products and I have to admit I am impressed. The staying power and pigmentation is much higher than I expected.
Trio Eyeshadow Palette – Green With Envy
With a retail price of just £2.50 these eyeshadow palette’s are amazing – the small box come’s complete with applicator and small mirror. They are available in 5 colours Sugar Plum, Graphite Glamour, Be-Dazzled, Innocence and the beautiful one I tried Green with Envy. The palette takes a journey from a very silvery green via emerald green to a deep dark almost black looking one. All three have a wonderful sparkly glimmering sheen to them which is not completely picked up by my camera.
The swatches above all contain two swipes of eyeshadow using my finger. The colour has great staying power with it lasting well for a whole day – and what do you need to finish of the lovely eye look a great Kohl.Kohl Eye Liner – Green Lagoon
This little beauty has a price of just £1.50, VIVO’s Kohl’s come in a total of 7 colours: black, black glitter, white, blue blazer, medium brown and this little beauty green lagoon, gliding on beautifully without the awful scratchy feeling some Kohl’s give you, the opposite end, gives you a ‘smudger’ (is that the correct word – I’m not sure I know what to actually call it) making it easier to get that lovely smudged look.HighlighterCosting just £5 this fabulous highlighter can be used both under foundation or on it’s own to give an all over glow or to highlight your cheeks and eyebrows. Feeling creamy and soft this cream does exactly what it says on the packet and highlights your skin tone beautifully, helping brighten a tired complexion any day of the week.Those are just 3 of a 27 item range with the highest priced item costing only £6 I shall defiantly be looking out for more down the isles of my local Tesco.

New from Domino’s is the Fourth instalment in their gourmet range the Quattro Formaggio featuring a combination of Greek Feta Cheese, Mozzarella, Bavarian Blue and Gran Moravia Cheese on Domino’s thin cut base with a sun-dried tomato and garlic source.
Tonight courtesy of Domino’s me and Ash dinned in style (aka on the sofa out of a Pizza Box). The mouth watering aroma that came from the box was lovely, as a huge cheese fan the large pieces of feta had me drawn in at once. The other half a not so cheese fan and one to only eat it melted decided to remove the feta from his so I got extra *insert extra drooling*.For a huge cheese fan such as myself this pizza is a dream come true.
Each bite brings a slightly different taste and texture experience as you take in four of the best cheeses from across the globe, even the not so cheesy other half enjoyed his pieces and declared it a pizza win in his eyes, while licking the last few crumbs from his fingers.
Receiving a definite thumbs up from the Bailey – Carroll household the Quattro Formaggio will most definitely grace our doorstep once again.
