My Take on Vivo Color Block Show Me The Money Eye Palette:

Packaging: Vivo color block palette comes in a square plastic palette. It encases 12 shadows alongwith a dual ended sponge tip eye shadow applicator. It has see through transparent cover. The entire information alongwith ingredient list is mentioned at the bottom of the palette. I really wish a mirror was provided with it. I did not like the packaging as I found it to be brittle and shadows are easily prone to damage. Its not at all travel friendly and would consume much of the space during travelling.

Pigmentation: All the shades are richly pigmented. I really didn’t have to swipe the shades more than twice. Matte, pearl and frosty shades are equally pigmented. Even without a primer all the shades show up clearly on my pigmented lids.

Texture & Finish: All the shadows have soft blendable texture, matte shades are velvety soft. Shadows in show me the money palette come with either matte or pearl, frosty finish. To my surprise at last I found a palette in which matte shades are so silky soft and pigmented, these are not at all chalky. Shadows blend nicely within seconds.

Longevity: I have used this palette on many occasions and I have never been disappointed as such. They last on my eyes for 4-5 hours easily. However, intensity of the shades reduces with time. Matte shades are longer staying and did not crease that easily, frosty shades showed minimal creasing after 3 hours without a primer. Shades with pearl finish had incredible staying power.

  • -Few shades are too frosty for my liking.
  • -Only available at Vivo site.
  • -The dual ended foam tip eye shadow applicator provided with it is pretty useless.

Will I repurchase it? Yes I would love to repurchase it. I already have two more palettes from their color block range and I really love using them.

My Overall Recommendation: Are you looking for an affordable palette with wide arrays of shades and combinations? Are you looking for pigmented matte eye shadows with better wear time? If yes, surely check these palettes. They have some awesome shades. One con I found with this palette was presence of few frosty shades in the palette, they are pigmented but I personally do not have preference towards frosty shadows. I would definitely recommend this palette to everyone who loves bright, bold colors.
