Quo Lip Gloss – Beauty Review

 

 

Hey everyone! I don’t know about where you live but the weather is getting very nice and ‘Spring’ like and I’m loving it! What about you?

Today, I am going to talk to you about Quo Cosmetics Lip Gloss which I just acquired last week.  If you’ve read my posts before you’d know that I’m not a big fan of lip gloss but when I saw the cute packaging, I somehow convinced myself to get it to do a review on.

Keep reading to see my thoughts on this bad boy!

This is at CAD$12.00 at Shoppers Drug Mart/Pharmaprix. QUO Cosmetics product line is sold exclusively at these locations.

Quo Lip Temptation in Pink Flamingo (candy pink). It’s available in 15 pretty colors. they look like squeeze tubes but it actually has the typical foam applicator.

The gloss is very pigmented and I was surprised as to how opaque it was. I like the look of glossy pink lips. It looks natural but I dislike the tacky and sticky feeling on my lips. The gloss is very sticky in consistency and I guess some f you might like sticky glosses because they are much more pigmented.

It’s a version of the look that is much more wearable for everyday. I would say that it keeps the intensity of the pigment for about an hour. So in terms of long wearing, I would say it’s average wear.

It does not have any glitter but some of these glosses do. I find they did not look too shimmery on and just looked more glossy instead. I always smell my lip products and this lip gloss smells delightful (depending on personal preference), I would say very much like cake batter or the creamy coconut sweet scents. I’m not a hug fan of scented lip products.

My overall verdict: I would not repurchase again. I really like the cute packaging and the applicator. I find the formula to be a little too sticky and pricey for a drugstore brand. This product received a “meh” from me.

Hardy Candy Fierce Effects Eyeshadow

 

Beauty products just pop up every single day. With Holidays approaching just few months from now, the Beauty market is flooding with lovely gift sets and palettes. Since it’s Hard Candy‘s 24th Anniversary, I couldn’t pass on these single pretty eyeshadow pots which I had my eyes on since it was released.

In case you are new to Hard Candy beauty products, allow me to briefly explain that this brand is exclusive only to Walmart. So, if you’re interested to try them, visit your nearest Walmart Beauty section.

I picked up the New Fierce Effects Eyeshadow in 899 Lost & Found. Available in five intense color at Walmart on Hard Candy online. A Hot Pink and Blackened Purple. Apparently, these are supposed to be a dupe for L’Oreal Infallible Eyeshadows. 

Packaging wise, these are lovely. They’re sturdy, easy to open, easy to close, stay closed, and have a classic, simple look to them.

Texture is great. The loose powder is soft and creamy, easily picked up on a sponge-tip or brush.

On color swatch you can see the beautiful pearly shimmer on both the shadows. It feels smooth to touch and highly pigmented. But just like some shimmery formula, I noticed some sparkle fall out but the good point is that blends beautifully. Color pay-off is amazing. These things are seriously pigmented. On top of a primer, they pop even more. You can sheer them out or pack them on.

Go see it in person !!! Photos will never do it justice!

Overall, wonderful eyeshadows, the price is amazing. I can’t recommend these enough!

Thank you for taking the time to read.
