I dislike Shoppers Drug Mart.
I know, I can't believe that I don't like a drug store either but I find Shoppers to be overpriced and slightly uppity for no apparent reason. I actually stopped shopping there for a while to make a bold statement (ha), but it was cut short because Shoppers was the only drug store near my house.
Needless to say, I slowly joined their ranks again and even began looking at their cosmetics once again. And, I was actually blown away. Not only had they added a few new product lines (Benefit, Smashbox, etc) BUT they had an exclusive brand: Quo Beauty.
Quo Beauty has, of course, been around for a while but I just recently started purchasing it. Here are some of my faves....
Quo Flipstick in Obsession. It's a beautiful pink rosy tone that's very sheer and shimmery. Best part of this lipstick is it's packaging. You twist the bottom of the tube and the lip color actually appears out of the top from behind a silver flap which is brilliant if you are constantly losing lipstick lids. (like me.)
Quo Mineral Matter Blush in Pink Petal. Again, a stunning sheer shimmery pink that is perfect on every skin tone. Plus, the packing is veryyyyy cool. The blush is housed in a polished case and, to gain access to it, you press the side of the container and the blush chutes out. It's very fun.
Quo Spring Goddess Palettes. Each palette comes with four eye shadows, one blush, one lipgloss and a blush brush and they're contained in a cute multicolor box. (With a tassel....ha) There are four different shade selections:
Athena: Violet, teal gold and smoky grey
Aphrodite: Warm bronze and brown tones
Maia: Cool blues and purples
Thea: Grey tones with pink highlights (my favorite!!)
All in all, I'm impressed! Yes, it's a bit more expensive for a drug store brand (palettes: $29, flipstick: $19, blush: $15) but it's worth it. The products are nicely pigmented and very smooth in texture. I highly recommend them...
What do you think? Have you tried this line before?
