Quo Summer 2016 Collection: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
I love summer makeup collections because they always have the cutest and coolest packaging. So today I want to share with you a few awesome new releases from Quo's Summer 2016 Collection. To see some swatches and reviews of these decked-out nautical-themed products, click.......
Quo Summer 2016 Bronzer in "Sunny Days"
Quo Summer 2016 Bronzer in "Sunny Days" ($22 CAD):
Housed in a round plastic compact printed with a gorgeous nautical pattern, the "Sunny Days" bronzer holds a three-tone powder pressed with a wavy pattern. Included is a soft satin taupe, a pale champagne shimmer, and a soft bronze shimmer. All three shades are very soft and powdery; the pigmentation is a bit weak on the satin taupe but the other two shimmers all apply very well.

Quo Summer 2016 Eyeshadow Palette in "High Tide"
Quo Summer 2016 Eyeshadow Palette in "High Tide" ($22 CAD):
This is a very compact eight-shade palette with the same nautical packaging as the bronzer. The shadow pans in the palette are all very long and thin, which makes application a bit tricky.

Included is a satin plum, a dark satin violet plum, a gunmetal metallic, and a dark satin brown. The formulation for these is fairly pigmented and creamy but the eyeshadows are extremely prone to fall-outs. The texture is so soft that small chunks actually fall out when I swipe my finger across the surface.

The other four shades included are all a bit too similar to each other. You get a silvery white shimmer, a creamy satin, a sheer light grey, and a sheer silvery white shimmer. Overall I am not very impressed with this eyeshadow palette but the "Sunny Days" bronzer is great, especially because you get 19 grams of powder!
