Bargain Buy: Vivo Shimmer Block Blusher and Shimmer Block Bronzer

I love blushers and bronzers and I probably own far too many of them :) The newest additions to my little collection are from a very affordable brand -Vivo. If you shop in Tesco, you are probably familiar with their makeup range. The Shimmer Block Bronzer* and Shimmer Block Blusher* cost  only £3.99 each, but I am pleasantly  surprised with their quality.

The Shimmer Block Blusher reminds me of Nars Orgasm, but is is much more pigmented and lasts longer on my cheeks (6h+). It is a gorgeous peachy shade with a lot of shimmer (no glitter-don't worry) and you can mix all the colours together, or use each one individually. Overall, it is absolutely beautiful!

The Shimmer Block Bronzer is equally nice and adds a natural looking glow to my face. It is very subtle and it would look lovely on pale and medium skin tones.

Both formulas are easy to blend, with minimal fallout and add a healthy glow to dull skin. If you have clear skin, you will love them, but if your pores are enlarged, or you suffer from breakouts, the shimmer will exaggerate it.

Vivo Shimmer Block Blusher and Shimmer Block Bronzer are available from www.vivocosmetics.co.uk and Tesco stores.
