Falling Floral | Quo Cosmetics Fall 2016 Collection | Overview & First ImpressionsWednesday, September 07, 2016
When it comes to makeup; new releases and limited edition collections always cause some sort of frenzy. There is really nothing more exciting than getting your hands on the latest product to hit the shelves. One brand that is always on the ball with the latest and greatest is Quo Cosmetics.
Quo is an exclusive in-house brand only available at Shoppers Drug Mart and Pharmaprix and it is often overlooked for the quality of the products it offers. Every season, Quo comes out with a limited edition collection featuring versions of their most popular products and they are always a big hit.
Each seasonal collection comes in uniquely patterned packaging to celebrate the upcoming season and this year's Fall 2016 collection is no different. Each product is enrobed in a beautiful, deep violet, botanical print, and a glossy finish.
The Fall 2016 Collection features 4 products that each come in various shades as well as a makeup bag and a set of brushes. Let's take a look at each one.
Eye Shadow Palette in Neutral Ground ($18 CAD) - Just as each season, their eyeshadow palette is made of beautiful shades in various finishes. This season the shades lean more warm toned with a few gorgeous coppers and golds. The Quo palettes usually have a variation in quality with some shades performing beautifully while others are dry and less pigmented.
Face Palette in Perfectly Ordinary ($20 CAD) - A staple in Quo's limited edition releases, the face palettes are typically intended for contouring and highlighting the face. This season, the palette features 3 gorgeous powders; a setting powder, a shimmery bronzer, and a beautiful burgundy blush. All 3 are absolutely wonderful with a smooth formula, great pigmentation, and lovely shades.
Raise Your Brows Brow Palette ($12 CAD) - A variation in the brow palette they release every season, it includes a powder duo and a wax to set.
Matte Lipstick in ($14 CAD) - Quo's lip products are always top notch and their new matte lipsticks are no different. This particular shade is a gorgeous vibrant red.
Brush Up! Makeup Brush Set ($50 CAD) - a set of stunning metallic purple brushes and a matching bag. Includes a foundation brush, powder brush, blush brush, shadow brush, lip brush, and liner/brow brush.
The Fall 2016 Collection is yet another fantastic release from Canada's very own Quo Cosmetics. It is full of great staple products in beautiful shades and quality tools. I would definitely suggest picking up a product or two when then release in mid-September.
