Quo Holiday 2014 Collection: Review and Swatches
I think it's safe to say that the holiday shopping season has officially started, and to help you with your list Quo has released a treasure trove of makeup palettes and stocking stuffers. I have some swatches and reviews of a few picks from the Holiday 2014 Collection, to read more, click.......
Quo Holiday 2014 Collection: Review and Swatches
Christmas Cracker Set
Christmas Cracker Set ($15):
This is a cute play on the traditional Christmas crackers and each cracker is filled an eye shadow duo and a mini lip gloss. Unfortunately the crackers aren't real crackers that actually pop when you pull them; it is more of a paper tube with tied ends that resembles a cracker.
The packaging of the goodies could be a bit better in my opinion because neither the shadow or the lip gloss even has the Quo logo on it. Formulation-wise though, they are comparable to standard Quo products.

Essential Eyes Palette ($15 CAD):
This is a lovely shadow quad featuring some very neutral shades. The shadows come in a very nice gold and black case. There is a pale champagne gold, a satin brown, and two matte nudes. The formulation is decent but I do wish the shadows had a more pigmented and creamier texture.

Quo All About Brows Palette ($20 CAD):
This is a nifty all in one eyebrow kit. It comes with a mini spooly, tweezer, and angled brush. There are two shades of brow powder, one light brown and one medium brown. To help seal in the powder, the set also includes a clear brown wax. Last but not least, the brow kit comes with some nice soft vinyl brow stencils to help guide you in creating the perfect brows.

Love Lip Set ($20 CAD):
An adorable six piece mini gloss set, this makes the perfect little stocking stuffer. The color selection is fairly neutral, with five non-shimmers and one shimmer. The glosses have a very shiny finish; they are quite lightweight and not too sticky.

Walk the Line Eye Liner Set ($20 CAD):
This set features four very creamy pencil liners. They are not twist-ups so they do require sharpening. The color payoff is quite amazing but they do smudge relatively easily.
The set includes a simple black, a brown, a shimmery blue, and a metallic silvery grey.

Overall:
Such a cute and cohesive range from Quo. The black and gold packaging of everything is so festive and ornate. My pick would definitely be the Love Lip Set, the couple of maple honey shades are so gorgeous! There are lots more pieces to the Holiday 2014 collection from Quo so check them out at your local shoppers!
