I wearily write this blog post, finally feeling confident that I am used to the drugs from my tonsil surgery enough that I can write words and actually make sense to my readers.
First of all, thank you to everyone who has sent their well wishes on social media, I really appreciate it. I seem to be getting worse day by day, but my doctor said that was normal. It's nearly impossible to eat anything, so by the end of this recovery, I might not even need a contour kit to thin my face. Here's hoping .... (I digress...)
Quo has launched two limited edition contour palettes and a contour brush. The palettes are priced at $18.00 and the brush is $16.00. And of course, Quo does go on sale so there is always a chance of getting it cheaper! I chose the medium palette, as funny enough, the highlight shade in the light palette is actually darker, and the contour color was a bit too warm. I found the medium palette to be perfect, with both a matte highlight and cool contour shade. These powders are not as silky as I would like, but they still work very well. As a highlight, I prefer something that has a lot more impact, but I find myself using the lighter powder to set my undereye area. While not as soft to the touch as I would like, the powders blend well, and the colors are great for my super light skin tone.
Onto the brush. I absolutely love the width and the length of the bristles of this brush. The length of the handle is wonderful, and I have really enjoyed using it. It does have a few bristles here and there that stick out a little more than the others, and to be honest it's definitely not my softest brush. It is by no means uncomfortable to use, and just for the perfect shape of it, I say this brush it totally worth it. I have had zero problem with shedding from this brush, however the first time I washed it, I was surprised at how much black dye came from the bristles. It was intense, so definitely make sure you give this a good cleaning before putting it on your face!
The palette is by no means the silkiest, but I have gotten a lot of use out of it, and I love that it only had two colors. 99% of people don't need 6-8 color options in their contour palette, and the only negative thing I could say is the pigment isn't a rich as I would have liked. But that isn't excatly a bad thing when we are talking about contour. The colors are buildable and blendable and for $18.00 I think they are totally worth it.
As mentioned before, these items are limited edition, so if you want to get your frugal contour on, get to a Shoppers Drug Mart ASAP!
That's it folks, I hope you enjoyed this post. I really miss making videos, as soon as I can speak again and I am feeling okay I will be back on schedule!
