Review | VIVO Beauty Balm in Light

Hey beauties, today I shall be reviewing the VIVO Beauty Balm…   What it claims “Inspired by Asian BB Creams, designed to give a great coverage while also concealing and priming the skin, the new Beauty Balm is a formula that delivers more than just a standard foundation. While most foundations can be slippery and somewhat oily on the skins surface, the Beauty Balm is designed to leave a softer, silkier feel that doesn’t feel like foundation.

Packaging The packaging is your basic liner, with a sharpener attached to the lid. Now I’m not a fan of it. Once you sharpen them,…

I already had the primer in Sheer from a previous purchase and really liked it, so I thought I’d give another shade a go, to see how it compared. Packaging Pretty basic, nothing too flash.
