Whether you’re heading back to school this fall or just looking to switch out some of your summer cosmetics with deeper, richer shades, the new Quo limited-edition “Back To School” Collection has you covered. The collection features an extensive beauty palette, a lip gloss pair and a makeup brush set.
Quo Art Class Interchangeable Beauty Palette allows you to create the perfect fall look anywhere and at any time thanks to its handy travel palette that can be used on the go. It features 32 eyeshadows, 12 lip glosses and 4 blush shades in 4 perfectly coordinated, interchangeable colour collections; taking the guess work out of which colours go with what and letting you create unlimited possibilities.
Quo Art Class Interchangeable Beauty Palette comes in a glossy, black, hard plastic, flip up lid with a separate slide out compartments that hold an additional 2 colour palettes. It also comes with an interchangeable travel case just large enough to insert one of your favourite colour palettes, allowing you to bring 8 eyeshadows, a blush and 3 lip glosses whenever you’re on the go.
The shadows are buttery smooth, incredibly soft, and apply like a dream, with little to no fall out. The 32 eyeshadows are a mixture between matte and shimmer finishes and range from anything from your pinks and purples to your more natural greys and browns. They are easy to apply, blend out and create multiple looks. These can easily take you from day to night by using the lighter shades in the day and then glamming it up at night with the intense darker shades. When used with an eyelid primer you can expect to get a full 8 hours of wear time that doesn’t crease or smudge.
The blushes are incredibly smooth, soft and creamy and blend beautifully into the skin for a sheer wash of colour. Although not highly pigmented, you can easily build it for more colour without feeling heavy or chalky. It lasts on the cheeks throughout the day, although the colour does tend to fade somewhat after about 5 hours.
The glosses are sheer, but they do provide enough pigmentation for there to be a visible change in lip colour and all deliver high shine and about 3 hours of wear time. It’s non-sticky, non-greasy and pretty hydrating.
Quo Art Class Interchangeable Beauty Palette is an amazing deal, ringing in at only $40 for 48 different products and shades. From the shades I’ve tested, all the eyeshadows are highly pigmented and never crease, the blushes, while although a little sheer, create the perfect “all-natural” look that can be easily buildable. The glosses are wonderful on the days you don’t want too much colour on your lips or don’t want to fuss with a lip liner or mirror. I’m a sucker for anything that makes carrying my makeup in my purse a lot easier and less bulky, thanks to this handy travel palette, I can bring all 3 products in one easy case. The only flaw I see is there’s no place to put a makeup brush, so you still have to carry those separate.
If you’re looking to get your hands on this, you’re going to want to hit up your local Shoppers Drug Mart quickly, as you know it won’t last long; I already lost this to my mom, so I might have to go out and pick up another one for myself!
