vivo volume mascara



okay, so this is a pretty alien post for me. i love make up as much as the next girl, but i've never really thought about doing a review. i love reading beauty posts and think that they're great if you want a bit more info before you buy- which is what i'm hoping this post will do for some people! 

this mascara was one of my little stocking fillers from christmas, along with a few of tesco's other make up pieces (nail varnishes of course). i don't know much about vivo, but since using this mascara i'm definitely looking forward to trying some of their other bits.

now i'm not going to try and get all technical, because i wouldn't know how. all i know is that this mascara went on smoothly, has a nice chunky brush which i find the best for me, and lasted all day with no smudging. i had one of those "wow" moments when i first put it on, because my eyelashes felt stupidly fluttery, they alsmost felt false! the mascara isn't heavy at all, (i hate mascaras like that) though i never wear more than two coats so i couldn't say if that could happen with this one.

the decision to actually blog about this came after wearing the mascara to work one day- i had loads of comments about my eyelashes, and one of my colleagues just kept saying "are you sure they aren't false?" that has to be a good result eh.

and so, onto the photos.

one coat & eyeliner:












two coats, no eyeliner: 

so there we have it, my first blog post on make up other than nail varnish. i'd love to know if anyone else has tried any of the vivo range- are there any other pieces that stand out?

  1. Wow this looks so good, really does make it look like your wearing false eyelashes! Although it looks like you have lovely long lashes to begin with!
    I've only tried the matte eyeshadows, which are super soft and lovely, and the lipsticks so far. None of my local Tesco stores stock Vivo :( x
