New Core 2017 Products from Quo Cosmetics!

Quo Cosmetics has been continuously upping their game with their seasonal launches and now they’ve recentlyย also come out with some new core 2017 products!

New Core 2017 Products from Quo Cosmetics!This year, Quo has launched 6 new product lines that range from face primer to a new line of liquid lipsticks. Here are some of those products that you will be seeing in Shoppers Drug Mart now! Let’s start with the primer. Nourish & Prime Hydrating Primer ($24 / 28 ml) instantly hydrates your skin. It applies easily and absorbs quickly into your skin and can be worn under makeup or on its own for a boost of hydration. And to set your makeup, there is the new Makeup Setting Spray ($19 / 50 ml). It’s a weightless, fine mist setting spray that absorbs quickly and gives your skin a matte finish. It works on all skin types and prevents your makeup from transferring and fading.

New Core 2017 Products from Quo Cosmetics!Quo Concealer Palette

Quo is also launching a Concealer Palette ($19). There’s only one concealing palette but it holds a variety of tones that can be mixed to target all skin tones. It’s a multi-use palette that can conceal dark circles, imperfections and blemishes, as well as to highlight and contour your features. The palette has a creamy formula that provides medium coverage that’s easy to blend.

New Core 2017 Products from Quo Cosmetics!Clockwise from Top Left: Matte Bronzer in Light Tan, Radial Blur Translucent Powder, and Lip Velour in Diva

There’s a new set of two Matte Bronzer’s ($19 / 10 g) that come in ‘Light Tan’ and ‘Medium Tan’ that are launching in stores. They not only give your skin a matte finish but natural results as well. Then finish off your face with the Radial Blur Translucent Powder ($18 / 12.2 g). It’s a lightweight, ultra-fine and silky powder that captures and softens light that reflects onto the skin and minimizes your pores. It’s a universal shade that goes on invisible and offers sheer, semi-matte coverage. Lastly, there isย the new Lip Velour ($14 / 7 ml) collection that comes in 6 new and fun shades. They apply like a glossy liquid, then set to a creamy matte finish. The liquid lipstick also comes with a deluxe lip brush that provides flawless coverage.

So which products are my favourite? I love the Lip Velour in Diva, which is a medium brownish pink. I found that it actually has a semi-matte finish that has a nice shine and it feels really comfy on the lips. I love the Concealer Palette because the top left shade is the perfect shade for concealing my under eyes and carving out my eyebrows. It is VERY creamy and feels almost liquidy because it warms up very quickly when you dab your finger in any of the shades. My only issue is that there needs to be at least another concealing palette for people with darker skin tones because the darkest shade in the palette works as a contour shade on me and that’s not dark enough to cover a wide range of skin tones. I also really enjoy the Radial Blur Translucent Powder because it’s not one of those powders that’s tough to collect evenly on your brush. It sets my foundation and concealer nicely and doesn’t make me look dry. You can check out the rest of the new core productsย in stores now and at ShoppersDrugMart.ca!

Holiday Gift Sets from Quo Cosmetics!

12 Days of Christmas Series, Holiday Gift Guide, Quo Cosmetics, Review
Holiday Gift Sets from Quo Cosmetics!

The time of year is upon us where the radio stations start to play holiday music and Christmas gifts and decorations are flooding the malls and stores. I’ve officially started watching Hallmark Christmas movies (one of my favourite things to do at this time of year), so I think it’s appropriate to talk about holiday gift sets! I like planning ahead when it comes to holiday shopping and knowing who is offering the best value for my money. These holiday gift sets from Quo Cosmetics offer value and amazing options for any girl on your list who loves to be spoiled.

Holiday Gift Sets from Quo Cosmetics!Faking the perfect holiday glow is effortlessly easy with the Quo Soft Focus Highlighting Palette ($30.00 / Available now at Shoppers Drug Mart), which contains 3 highlighting powders. The palette also comes with two deluxe size brushes; one angled and one domed.

Holiday Gift Sets from Quo Cosmetics!

From L-R: light champagne, light pinkish pearl, light gold

My Thoughts:

Not only am I impressed by the quality of the highlight powders, but I’m very impressed by the high quality brushes that come with it. They are very soft and the perfect travel size that will take care of any blush, bronze or highlight job you need them to. The powders have a nice shimmer to them that can come off as too much if you don’t apply them lightly. The only real downside is that theย far right and left powders look very similar to each other, except the right powder has a bit more gold. Aside from that, it’s a nice set with awesome brushes, so I think it’s worth picking up as a stocking stuffer for anyone on your list, including yourself ๐Ÿ˜‰

Holiday Gift Sets from Quo Cosmetics!The Quo Luxury Lipstick Wardrobe ($30.00 / Available now at Shoppers Drug Mart) is a set of 4 matte lipsticks in beautiful, rose gold packaging. The lipsticks included are Crรจme, Orchid, Fig and Raspberry Red.

From L-R:ย Crรจme – pale nude beige, Fig – light rosy pink, Orchid – light mauve pink, Raspberry Red – deep berry red

My Thoughts:

I’m obsessed with this lipstick wardrobe and beautiful packaging! The colour range is incredible and I love the creamy matte formula and the lipsticks are mainly medium to full opaque with the light nude shade being semi-sheer in coverage. I really like that they added a berry red to the set instead of a straight up red, which is a little tiring to see in holiday sets, so I’m glad they added it. The lipsticks feel very comfortable and hydratingย because ofย the mango butter that are in them, and the wear time is about aย 4-5 hours, due to their creamy texture.

Holiday Gift Sets from Quo Cosmetics!For all of you who love surprises, Quo Hidden Treasures Cosmetic Crackers ($18.00 / Available now at Shoppers Drug Mart)ย is a set of 3 holiday crackers with hidden makeup goodies inside. Each cracker comes with an eyeshadow duo and complimenting lip gloss.

Top Row: light champagne & dark greyish taupe
Middle Row: light pearl & dark greenish grey
Bottom Row: light ivory & medium golden brown

Holiday Gift Sets from Quo Cosmetics!

From L-R: pale pearly pink (comes with light pearl & greenish grey shadow duo), light pink shimmer (comes with champagne & greyish taupe shadow duo), light rosy pink (comes with ivory & golden brown shadow duo)

My Thoughts:

If you’re having a holiday party with your girlfriends, these crackers are the perfect party favour to pass around. All of the eyeshadows colours are neutral and the glosses are a range of light pinks and peaches, so they will be very complimenting on any skin tone. I love holiday crackers because there’s something about that excitement that leads up to finding out what’s inside. These crackers don’t “pop” but the fun makeup inside offers that “bang”.

***

Overall, I’m very impressed with the gift sets and stocking stuffer options that Quo is offering for the holidays this year. They have tons more other gift sets available that are not to be missed either and the price points are very reasonable!

Quo Brush Up! Brush Set

Quo Cosmetics, Review
Quo Brush Up! Brush Set
I love getting new brushes about as much as I love getting my hands on a new, funky glitter. The excitementย of using a fresh set of brushes thrills me along withย the idea of finding a new favouriteย go-to brush. It’s all about the brush design. I go gaga over a sleek designs and beautiful colours, which is how I felt when I got my hands on Quo Cosmetics Brush Up! Brush Set from their fall 2016 collection.

Quo Brush Up! Brush SetThe limited edition brush set comes with 6 beautifully crafted brushes with custom handles and compliments the Quo Fall 2016 collection quite nicely. The set also comes with a pretty purple makeup bag with a plastic protected interior to help you avoid any damageย or spillsย to the inside. You get pretty much every brush you would need to create a basic look: a powder brush, blush brush, foundation brush, eyeshadow brush, lip brush and eyeliner/brow brush.

Price: $50 / Available now at Shoppers Drug Mart

Quo Brush Up! Brush SetMy Thoughts:

Quo brushes were the first somewhat pricier brushes I started to use personally and as a makeup artist starting out. I found them to be very good quality, with minimal shed and they lasted for quite a long time. This brush set is no different. I can still feel and experience the same quality as I got before, but these brushes look a lot more modern and more eye catching compared to the silver brushes I used to collect from Quo. I’ll admit that this set is a little pricey but the quality does compare to higher end brushes out there.
