vivo ultimate brow & eye kit

Vivo Ultimate Brow and Eye Kit: tesco (£5)* 

Vivo Ultimate Brow and Eye Kit contains three different shades of matte brown shadows, a small brow gel and a double ended eyeshadow/slanted applicator. I threw away the brush as I never use them, but it does come with a angled slanted brush which is perfect for filling in eyebrows. On me this kit is a touch to light, I have super dark eye brows and I really like them to be really defined and dark brown. The dark brown is just a tad to pale and ashy, and the middle shade is too warm. I feel it would probably suit light brown-blonde brows more than mine which are leading on the black-brown side.

Dont get me wrong I do think its a decent little kit. Its just not the right shade for me, The shadows are smooth and easy to use, they come off quite pigmented as well. Great if you wanted some basic shadows for neutral eyes, Its so hard to find decent matte eye shadows in drugstores. The gem of the kit to me is the little brow gel. This is really handy and is perfect size to put in your makeup bag to tidy up straggly brows!

I think if you are fairer brow-ed this would be a great kit for you, But its not for me. The shade range is good just doesn't really cater for darker haired ladies like myself. Would be good if they brought out another shade range maybe mid brown to black. Other brow kits more suitable for darker hair that I've personally tried is the HD brows palette in Vamp & the E.L.F studio brow kit.
I typically use MAC Espresso Eyeshadow and a Sigma E65 to fill my eyebrows in. For a more detailed post on my eyebrows follow the link here


  1. This looks great for a fiver! I'm still trying to work out how to use my HD Brows palette.. I think I'll stick to Brow Zings!

  2. Out of all the Vivo items I've seen this is one I'd really like to try. I have the ELF one but I find it's a bit dark for me x

  3. This looks great, but I don't think it is an alternative to my HD brows kit yet!

    As for the gel, I would not be able to live without my Benefit Speed Brow brow gel - you should try it! x

  4. I might have to buy this, really want to try out an eyebrow kit but without spending a lot of money! x

  5. This sounds really good, my brows are quite light so I'd love to check this out x

  6. i've got super dark brown hair but my eyebrows are quite an ashy brown colour so I think the last colour might work for me:) may just have to go and take a look at this!xx

  7. I really like wht I've read about Vivo products so far, budget make up brands seem to be upping their standards a lot! I've never tried a brow palette so think something like this or E.L.F's one would probably be a good place to start xx

  8. this looks amazing for just £5, I never thought to look in tesco for makeup before, might have to try this out :) xo

  9. good price but it would be way too light for me too x

  10. This is perfect for me for right now as I've been looking for a cheap alternative to my (sadly running out) Browzings by benefit. I just need to get my hands on it! Thanks :)

  11. I prefer to use the leftover gel on my mac jetblack liner brush - with dark brown brows just a little bit looks good and the gel ties it together.
    The tones are nice, I think I would use them on my eyelids though.

  12. I like the fact that it has a cute little brow gel in it!

  13. I think this would be such a good palette for my blonde eyebrows, £5 is such a good price, thankyou for this review!

  14. i have the hd brow kit and barely use it, i just dont do anything with my brows so this probably isnt for me :s
