As you may already know, this year is all about a natural look while highlighting and enhancing your existing beauty. We’ve all come to love the Urban Decay Naked Palettes, but we may not love the expensive price tag that goes along with it. This season Quo has released 2 of their oh so famous, Back To Basics Palette, the original palette and a new matte version, but with a price everyone can afford. Both Quo Back To Basics Palettes come packaged in a very sleek, black with gold detail, durable cardboard case with full size mirror on the inside lid. It contains 12 pigmented, incredibly soft eyeshadows, 9 of them being extremely neutral and 3 of them giving a little pop of colour to this otherwise very nude palette. From light and barely there nudes and champagnes, to rich and intense browns and smoky tones, each shade will help to amplify your eyes to easily take you from day to night. It also comes with an extremely soft eyeshadow brush for easy application.
Quo Back To Basics
Quo Back To Basics first shade is an extremely pale, beige nude that although is fairly light, it’s the perfect neutral and acts wonderfully as a highlight shade. Second shade is a champagne with a hint of pink and a satin finish. Third shade is a fairly sheer medium beige-brown with a matte finish. Fourth shade is a shimmery bronze brown with almost a redish undertone to it. Firth shade is a dark matte brown that sadly to say, doesn’t have that much colour payoff. Sixth shade is a coppery bronze with almost a frosted metallic finish.
Quo Back To Basics seventh shade is a deep dark bronze with a slight sheen to it. Eighth shade is a dark and deep chocolate brown. Ninth shade is dark pinky brown with a shiner finish. Tenth shade is a rich and dark plum/ chocolate brown with a shiner finish. Eleventh shade is a dark, blueish black with a slight silver shimmer throughout it. Finally, the twelfth shade is gunmetal, blue-grey with a metallic finish.
