Quo Luxury Lipstick Wardrobe Review and Swatches
Quo has some wonderful offering for the holidays this year and today I have swatches and review of the pretty Luxury Lipstick Wardrobe ($30 CAD) gift set to share with you! Featuring four matte lipsticks, the set works out to be $7.5 per lipstick, which is a pretty good deal. However, does the formulation match the value, read on to find out.......

Packaging:
The Quo Luxury Lipstick Wardrobe comes in a festive gift-ready box. Inside you will find four 3.9 gram lipsticks each housed in a shiny rose gold tube. The packaging is pretty sleek for a drugstore brand!

Formulation:
With a natural matte finish, the four lipsticks vary quite a bit in terms of their formulation. Raspberry Red is a beautiful bold pink-red and its pigmentation is stellar. The formulation is also very smooth and even. With the rest of the shades, however, it is a completely different story. Creme is a neutral nude and although nudes tend to be sheer, this one was extremely so. The texture also feels very chalky and silicone-y, accentuating every wrinkle and dry patches.

Fig, a flattering soft rose, is comparatively smoother and less patchy than Creme but it is still very sheer. Lastly, Orchid is a pale baby pink. Like Creme, this one is extremely chalky and patchy. The coverage is very uneven as the formulation clings to every wrinkle and line. The wear of Rasberry Red is good but the rest are not really worth noting given how incredibly sheer they are to begin with. Overall this set was a dud for me. Raspberry Red is a great shade but if you have to buy the whole set just for one good color, it's not worth the investment.
