Vivo Ultimate Base Concealer Kit

The Vivo Ultimate Base Concealer Kit is a kit that is supposed to help you create flawless skin.  It comes in just one shade, contains two "creamy" concealers, one setting powder and a liquid highlighter. The packaging is really simple, but works really well. You have four products in one so the size is actually really nice.

I'm not a huge fan of this, and I'm not surprised to be quite honest. I have never really gotten on with 'creamy concealers'  but I thought this one might change the bad experiences I've had with them. 
It comes in one colour,which isn't the best. It work for me, and I would say I'm about an NC/NW15-20 in MAC but if you are paler or of a darker skin tone, this isn't going to work very well for you. They are both similar in colour but each has a slightly different tone to it, pink and yellow. 

They offer little to no coverage, and even when I managed to build something on my skin it didn't last very long at all. The texture is far from the creamy concealer I was expecting, and is actually very tacky and hard to work with. It doesn't blend easily, and it leaves a horrid feeling on the skin even with powder over the top.

The setting powder is fine. I don’t think you can go wrong with a simple setting powder but I don’t use it because I don’t use the palette at all.

The one redeeming thing in this palette is the gorgeous highlighter that comes with it. It’s a small size, in a cute little black tube, with a doe foot applicator. It’s a beautiful white highlighter with a pinky/peachy iridescent sheen to it. I love it! I chuck this in my bag, and it helps me keep that nice glowy look everyone is after.

Overall I wouldn't recommend the Vivo Cosmetics Ultimate Base Concealer Kit.  It is cheap (you can purchase it here) but it's not worth that. I would recommend trying something like the Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer (from £18)  if you want something like that, but I am going to stick with the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19) for blemishes and something like the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer for under my eyes (£5.99)

Do excuse the terrible pictures here. I had so many technology fails that this is probably about the best I could do.
