Review: Quo Summer Fantasy Palette – Beautiful

10 Jun

Hello everyone! So finally I get around to review this palette. There are two other variations of this palette the only thing that varies between the palettes are the eyeshadow colors. The other palettes are called Fame and Celebrity.

 (5th swatch in is the blush blended together)

Review: Beautiful really is… pretty (thought I was going to type beautiful didn’t you?). It has pretty shades that are workable for any skintone and the feel of these are sooo soft and silky it’s great. Pigmentation is so-so it’s not the most pigmented product out there but it’s good as you can build up the color as needed. There is no scent from these and lasts for about a regular workday so 6-8 hours. For the eyeshadow best to use primer underneath as it can slip and slide as the shades are just super silky. Overall a pretty great travel palette but I wish instead of two spongetip applicators I would like a brush and maybe an applicator.

Cost: $20CDN exclusively @ Shoppers Drug Mart Limited Release

Would I recommend this product? I would totally recommend this palette and it’s pretty multi-talented and perfect for travelling around.

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.
