CELEBRATING MY FIRST CANADIAN SPRING WITH QUO COSMETICS' LIMITED EDITION SPRING 2019 COLLECTION!



Hi there, my darlings! Ah Spring! After a brutal first winter in Canada, I can honestly say that I have never been so glad for Spring to finally arrive. Even being a utterly nocturnal creature, I missed the sun! Everything is finally, finally coming out from the constant gloom (and random storms), the ice is melting and new possibilities are in the air! What better way, then, to celebrate my very first Spring season in Canada than by sharing the brand-spankin-new, limited edition Spring 2019 collection from Shoppers Drug Mart's in-house brand, Quo Cosmetics. Take a peek!


LUXE BUFFING BRUSH ($15.00 CAD at SDM)

Build coverage and buff away imperfections with the Quo Luxe Buffing Brush. Ideal for using with liquid, cream and powder foundations, it achieves a natural-looking finish with less product absorption. The rose gold hardware and soft-touch handle add a professional touch. The brush is also perfect for swirling on powder for a streak-free finish.



This brush is not only abosltely beautiful and totally on trend for the season with the rose gold handle but so soft yet densely packed. When I say densely packed, the bristles are super thin and plentiful. You know how some brushes just go in every direction? Not this one! The brush is just solid while still remaining pliant and gentle on the skin so that it's up to any face makeup task. Very impressed!




FACE PALETTE($20.00 CAD at SDM)

Quo face palettes are your all-in-one soluion to the latest looks, from dramatic contours to a soft, natural glow. Each palette contains one contour powder and three highlighters to create a custom glow for spring.


Available in 2 shade collections, Sand Dune and Badlands (shown below).


Ah so gorgeous! If you know me, you know how much I love a good highlighter! And these are fabulous, especially with the range of color of the three highlighter shades. Yes, they are all shades of pink and gold but different enough that they allow for customizable looks depending on which ones you use and blend together. The contour shade also may just work for my skin tone--it's just dark enough without being too much for a believable contour. Overall, a pretty perfect palette for the season!




EYE SHADOW PALETTE($18.00 CAD at SDM)

Each palette contains four perfectly paired eye shadows and one double-sided mini eye shadow brush. Desert Rose includes one pink, one green and two sand-toned shades to create a cool neutral look with a pop of cactus green. Desert Sun includes one shimmery golden hue and three matching nude and brown shades. Mix and match these eye shadow palettes for the perfect collection of spring colours.


Available in 2 quartets, Desert Rose and Desert Sun (shown below).


First of all...I love this palette! All four shades are shimmers (yes!) and all four are infinitely wearable, ranging from the subtle, barely there shimmer of the first shade to the richly pigmented depth of the last. Totally nailed the name and the theme! You can truly mix and match to your heart's content with this quartet--I'm particularly in love with the bright, yellow gold and the rich coppery shade.




CACTUS SPONGE($10.00 CAD at SDM)

Blending your makeup has never been this fun, thanks to the two-piece Quo Cactus Sponge. Designed as small and precise, it is perfect for everyday use with concealer, powders and liquid foundations.



Props for the cuteness factor! Isn't this just adorable? Now, I'll never give up my Beauty Blender, but I appreciate the affordable option with this little sponge. I'll probably use this little thing for nail art!





CREAM LIP STAIN($10.00 CAD at SDM)

A creamy lip stain to finish your spring makeup look. This formula starts as a gloss, finishes as a stain, and delivers the same high-pigment payoff of a lipstick. Mariposa is a soft pink shade and Apache is a the perfect nude colour.


Available in 2 shades, Apache and Mariposa (shown below).


Spring lipstick shades are inevitably just a tad too light for my liking--I'm a Fall shade kinda girl! This one too is pretty but probably not one I would reach for. I do like the formula and the stain finish--I do hope they come out with more shades!




So there you have it, my darlings! Quo Cosmetics products are found exclusively through Shoppers Drug Mart all across Canada! Grab those last-minute gifts HERE while you still can!
