Quo Eye Shadow Palette in Barely There
Quo Eye Shadow Palettes in Shades of Grey
Although I loved the idea of the Quo Face Contour Palette, the pigmentation wasn’t there and the shades were a little off. The two shades are silky and velvety and fairly easy to work with, but it took a lot of building up to even see the slightest amount of colour. If you’re looking for a sheer wash of colour, or are just starting into highlighting and contouring, you might enjoy this palette? The highlight shade is completely matte, which some might love, but I like my highlight shades to have a little shimmer. This helps make the cheekbones really pop and reflect light. The contour shade is too red tone and too warm, it almost acts as a bronzer. A good contour shade is cooler in tone and is meant to create a shadow and hollow out the cheekbones. This shade it just too bronzy, it might actually be best used as a bronzer to add a little warmth to your complexion. It comes in both Light and Medium for $18 each.
