Lucky number 7, here we go! I've been having so much fun with SummerxSkin's 12 Days of Giveaways. Make sure to click the banner on the side bar (or here) to check out everything that's been featured so far.
QUO, a brand exclusively sold at Shoppers Drug Mart, puts together special holiday kits for makeup lovers. They have quite a variety from lipstick sets, to nail polishes, contour palettes and more.
This year there are two kits that I'm obsessing over. The first one being QUO's Soft Focus Highlighting Palette. Highlighting has been a huge trend this year and we don't see it disappearing anytime soon. If you're new or still unsure what shade suits you best, I recommend diving into a palette like this. The price is great, and it gives you a range of three different types of highlights to play with. Two are on the more shimmery side, while the third is less noticeable.
The second kit that I'm loving is the QUO Luxury Lipstick Wardrobe! As an avid lip wearer (and self-proclaimed lipstick queen), I nearly died when I saw these babies. Not only is the packaging simply stunning (can't go wrong with mixed metal), but the set gives you a beautiful range of colours AND they are highly pigmented. After swatching all four on my arm, it took me forever to get the colour off.
The four shades from left-right are Orchid, Creme, Fig, Raspberry Red. As you can tell, the nude is one that won't really go with my skin tone, but I know that it will look beautiful on someone who is more pale or wears nudes often. The other three I can totally get behind.
Note that I would normally show you how the shades look on my lips; the difference between the arm swatch + when you're actually wearing it can be quite different. However I'm currently going through the wisdom teeth removal process... selfies will have to wait. Sorry!
