You know it’s time to kiss goodbye to the last vestiges of summer when the new autumn makeup looks arrive… but I’ve got a feeling that when you take a look at what Quo has in store for autumn you’ll be welcoming the changing of the seasons with open arms!
The limited-edition Quo fall collection for 2018, sold exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart, is the very definition of fired up, with smoky and cool, neutral tones and seductive textures. It’s a beautifully edited collection that has something for everyone, whether you like to dabble in dark tones, or you’re fully committed to an autumnal colourway.
To me, the collection harnesses the girl on-the-go, with a range of shades that can effortlessly take you from day to night. Let’s dive in and see what’s in store in each department: face, eyes and lips!
The fall collection includes two Quo Face Palettes in Sweet Magnolia ($18) and Dragon Bite ($18). I LOVE highlighters- they give the illusion of an eternal summer glow- so I was pleasantly surprised to see Quo include two highlighters in each palette. The face palettes also come with one shade of luminous blush and bronzer. With a price tag of $18 a palette, you get lots of bang for your buck.
The Quo Brush Set with Magnetic Stand is one of my favorite products from this collection. The brushes have season appropriate, gorgeous bronze-coloured handles and magnetic ends! I have so many pouches to store brushes in already so this feature is a great change. Plus, the magnetic stand prevents makeup debris and germs from transferring between the brushes and also helps the brushes retain their original shapes.
The brush set retails for $55 and includes a powder brush, blush brush, foundation brush, all over eyeshadow brush and concealer brush.
Using the blush brush, I love to apply the bronzer under my cheekbones and swipe upward towards the hairline, followed by blush on the center of my cheekbones and finished with highlighter just above the cheekbones. The highlighters in both palettes are super pigmented and work for many skin tones
The eyeshadow palettes- Lunar Rainbow & Fire Clay feature a range of matte eyeshadow shades that
are not just velvety soft, but also buildable, depending on the look you want to achieve
The best part is that each shade is so unique and complex, from the taupe to matte elderberry. Did I mention that you get 12 eyeshadow pans in each palette for only $20?! Both of these eyeshadow palettes are on par with other high-end counterparts in terms of both the sturdy, beautiful packaging and the quality shades.
One of my favourite things about this time of the year is mixing up my beauty bag with injections of colour, and of course, there’s no better way to do so than with some new lip shades.
Once again, Quo nails the ultra pigmented formula, with all three shades applying like magic with just one layer. The three shades: Seduce, Date Night and Addict are all statement-making lipsticks. These matte lipsticks never feel dry and last from day to night. I wore “Addict” on several occasions already and I’ve received compliments. They retail at $14.
Since I always get asked what nail polish I’m wearing, I thought I would tell you up front. I love the shade “Namastay Healthy” from the Quo by ORLY Collection.
..and that’s what Quo has in store for this fall season. I’m curious to know which products you are most excited about. What are your favourite fall makeup looks? Please share below in the comments.
