Ever since I discovered the gorgeous seasonal collections from Quo, I’m excited to see not just what products they release, but what the packaging looks like. Although I actually only have one product that shows it, the Quo Spring 2015 Collection does not disappoint with my favourite packaging so far–a brocade over pink design. The Quo Spring 2015 Collection includes several eyeshadow and face palettes, along with lipsticks and a brush set not included in this post. However I did receive a few products from the collection to try out, and I’ll be sharing my thoughts on those today!
Quo Spring 2015 Collection Quo Brow Palette* has the gorgeous packaging I mentioned, but the contents are quite familiar. If you recall the Quo Fall 2014 Collection, this exact brow palette was included then, although it had different packaging. Since I already reviewed the product and the shades are too light for my brows, I didn’t test it again, but you can check out my first review for swatches and thoughts.
Quo Spring 2015 Collection also includes a limited edition mascara, the Quo Dynamic Duo Mascara*, which is quite unusual because it has a built in comb. I found the mascara itself was fairly natural although it did lengthen.
The Quo Dynamic Duo Mascara formula is a bit dry, and after three coats I still didn’t really find it clumpy so I don’t think the comb was necessary, although it is a good concept, I kinda prefer that the mascara didn’t need it. I had no issues with the wear of the mascara, but as you can tell from the above photo (where I applied it to the left eye only) there’s nothing really exciting about it either.
I love the Quo by Orly collaboration and the Quo Spring 2015 Collection is filled with some really unique glitter toppers or Art Scene polishes, including Quo by Orly Contemporary* and Quo by Orly Pop* which I tried out.
Despite being part of the Quo Spring 2015 Collection, Quo by Orly Contemporary is pretty perfect for Halloween, with lots of tiny white glitter, slightly larger black hexes, even larger orange hexes, and black bars. I applied one coat of Quo by Orly Contemporary over OPI Aloha from OPI and the glitter coverage was really good with the exception of the black bars. I’m actually not a fan of bar glitter, so that worked for me!
Quo by Orly Pop contains little black, yellow and red matte glitter, with larger blue hexes and black bars. The shade reminds me of both comic books, and OPI To Be Or Not To Beagle. I applied one coat of Quo by Orly Pop on top of OPI This Color’s Making Waves. Again, the glitter coverage is good but I could do without the bar glitter, but these aren’t the only two shades in the Quo Spring 2015 Collection that have bar glitter, so maybe it is an upcoming trend.
Although I don’t have the most exciting bits of the Quo Spring 2015 Collection to share with you (EYESHADOWS, LIPSTICKS!), the packaging is gorgeous and I would definitely check it out in store. Have any of these pieces caught your attention?
