Review, Swatch and Tutorial: Effortless Holiday Look with Quo Beauty*


I've been using Quo Cosmetics since I was first wearing makeup, I still remember my first purchase from this brand, it was a cream bronzer, blush and highlight palette and I loved it so much. Fast forward now to 2020, they have relaunched their entire collection, repackaged it and reformulated it as well. I was recently sent their collection to try out and since it's been a hot minute from my last makeup tutorial I thought why not take the opportunity now! I have these beauties swatched below and I will also list out what products I've used to create the looks below.

Here is a classic before and after shot of my face - left, super tired panda circle eyed mom and right, my "effortless" clean-ed up look! To create this, I used the:
- Quo - Brow Defining Gel 
- Quo - Sheer Lip Paint (Poised)
- Quo - Pump Up The Volume Maxi-Volume (Black) 
- Quo - Golden Glow Primer 
- Quo - Skin Perfector (Golden Hour)
- Quo - Blush (Rose Water)
- Quo - Featherweight Cream Blush (Angelic)
- Quo - Cosmic Cream Shadow (Dark Matter)
- Quo - Liquid Precision Marker (Jet Black)
The only product that I used that isn't Quo is the foundation, concealer, lashes and Brow pencil (as one wasn't provided)
I am truly in LOVE with the reformulated, and repackaged products - they are so girly and in touch with current trends and honestly priced at a drugstore price point also makes this very affordable. I wish I could tell you I liked one thing over another, but for the lip/cream products below I truly LOVE THEM ALL. The Featherweight Cream Blush is a great dupe for this higher end competitor product out there in the market now, and the Sheer Lip Paints are weightless on the lips and feel so comfortable. The lipsticks glide on effortlessly, are pigmented and lasts me a few hours (until I eat or drink).
Below are the face and eye products that were used to create the look as well. The liquid liner is black and opaque, pigmented and can do a thin or thick line equally. The Cosmic Cream Shadow blends out like a dream and stays put all day and also layers wtihout getting caught and patchy. The Skin perfector powder is a beautiful diffused highlighter and the Golden Glow Primer is DEWY. It is like a liquid highlight so use with caution, I would not just use this directly on its own as a primer as you will end up looking like edward cullen when the sun hits - haha! I actually mixed this with my foundation and it was perfect! Lastly, the Blushes are buttery and pigmented as you can see the swatches are only one swipe. 
I decided to include swatches fo the three lipsticks for you below (oh and yes I did go darker, say goodbye to the blonde balayage hair). I used a lipbalm under the lipstick to give it a bit of shine and I really have to say its beautiful. You can see how truly pigmented they are and it only took one swipe.
Which products are you looking forward to? Have you tried anything from Quo yet? 

Until next time, XO - M.

  2. I picked up their coloured mascara in purple and was really let down. I am excited to try the rest of their stuff because everyone is saying such good things about them. I really want the cheek products

  4. If there are still any artists creating beautiful objects of art, I suspect, like any good news in the newspapers, they are not getting the headlines. cbd bath bomb portland
