Review: Quo Total Face Perfection Primer

7 Jun

Whoo, it’s been a while since I posted up a review post… thankfully I haven’t forgotten the format of these posts. Hooray for remembering but here we go!

Review: Quo is a Canadian brand for those who are unaware and is only available at Shoppers Drug Mart. A primer is used before foundation to set a adhering base and to smooth out skin tone. Some primers are used to enhance the skin such as making it radient or colour correcting. This primer is only meant for keeping foundation on longer and even if I wore this on its own it really does have no effect. When I use this primer I notice that my base makeup stays on longer than without the primer give or take a few hours. It is a clear gel-like consistency and feels very smooth to the touch making it hard to determine which part of your face that you forgot to rub the primer into. Half a pump is enough for a full face also including the neck. I know that this will last a while before I have to go buy a new one. A pretty decent primer that doesn’t break me out like Smashbox Photofinish did.

Cost: $21.00 CDN only available at Shoppers Drug Mart. (*tip: for those buying wait until they have sales which is very often)

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this product for those who are in Canada or live in Canada as it is a Canada exclusive product (how many times did I have to write Canada?). But there are other cheaper alternatives (Rimmel Fix&Perfect Primer) out on the market and this step isn’t really needed if you don’t need your makeup to last throughout the entire day.
