Still out shopping for Christmas gifts? Have you had a chance to check out the Quo Cosmetic holiday collection yet? There are two sets that look like they’d make great gifts for makeup lovers.
The Quo Eye Shadow Contour Set and the Quo Soft Focus Highlighting Palette are both about gently highlighting and shaping your features.
Let’s start with the Quo Eye Shadow Contour Set. This set has a large palette with 6 mostly light neutral shadows, and 2 eye brushes.
The exterior packaging is very subtle and gorgeous. It’s mostly glossy black plastic, with a grey floral design that is only visible at certain angles.
I do find the circular packaging to be awkward though. I much prefer rectangular packaging for storage purposes.
Inside, the palette features light neutral-based matte shadows that work together to create a flawless no-makeup look.
Swatched, the pigmentation is actually quite impressive. The shadows are soft and well pigmented. Yes, they are light, but they aren’t patchy or dry.
The Quo Soft Focus Highlighting Palette also comes in a set with a palette and two brushes. These are shorter travel sized brushes, but are a good size for contouring and highlighting.
The exterior packaging features the same subtle patterning, and inside there are 3 shimmery shades.
When swatching, it’s easy to see these are very light, but very light grabbing. There is a subtle difference between the three, but again, it’s quite subtle.
Everything about these sets is subtle and light. They’re a nice contrast to heavy and dark contouring products that were all the rage last year. These offer a very delicate and almost refined way to shape your face.
