Have you noticed all the wonderful goodies in the Quo Cosmetics Holiday 2013 Collection at Shoppers Drug Mart lately? Lots of really nice things! I have two things to show to you today and I love them both.
The Quo Emergency Kit Holiday($32 CDN) is the ultimate holiday makeup survival kit! It has all the beauty essentials you need to go from the office to a holiday party.
The Quo Emergency Kit Holiday has 4 eyeshadows, 4 lip gloss colours, 1 blush and the cutest set of mini travel-size brushes I’ve seen! And the navy quilted case is so pretty, and re-useable too.
Swatchy time #1!
The eyeshadows make for a pretty taupe look. You get a shimmery white highlight, a matte purple toned taupe, a shimmery taupe and dark brown. Oh, and don’t forget the coral blush! The eyeshadows are pretty nice quality- nicely pigmented, and blend well too. All together you get a classic look that’s appropriate for any party! I used the little mini brushes to apply the eyeshadows, and they weren’t half bad I have to say!
Now, my favourite part of the Quo Emergency Kit Holiday are the lip gloss colours. One of the shades came with a dent in it, but it was still useable. I smooshed my finger in it to try to make it look better, but that didn’t work HAHA. Silly Tracy. Swatchy Time #2!
Interesting shades, no? And they’re pretty pigmented for glosses, and actually feel like a lipstick to me.
Excuse all the different skin tones, but I had to adjust the colours to be more accurate. You get a pretty rose, a lavender pink, a vampy cherry red, and a caramel that’s a really different shade and my favourite one. They’re really creamy, and apply nicely lasting about 2 1/2 hours before starting to fade. And they don’t feel drying either. Love ‘em!
Another surprise for me was the Quo Shimmer Puff($20 CDN):
The Quo Shimmer Puff is a limited edition shimmer powder housed in a beautiful navy box that you can use to hold jewelry after.
What surprised me about the Quo Shimmer Puff is the actual powder! It’s AMAZING!
Swatchy Time #3
It’s such a pretty shimmer and looks almost wet when applied, leaving a liquid like finish. The shimmer particles are so fine that you can barely detect them. You can use it on your shoulders and decolletage, but boy would this be a seriously pretty cheekbone highlight!
The Quo Emergency Kit and Quo Shimmer Puff from the Quo Cosmetics Holiday 2013 Collection is in stores right now! Check out your local Shoppers Drug Mart for these and the other holiday pretties!
