Quo giveaway

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

It's Monday and I have an exciting Quo giveaway for you! I got some awesome goodies on Saturday and bought some extras to give away to you guys.

Available to win are 3 items from Quo 2010 Holiday collection and 1 item from their regular line.

Quo is the home makeup brand of Shoppers Drug Mart. I am impressed with their great brushes (regular and pro lines) and the Holiday collections every year. This is your chance to win some cool Canadian stuff :)

First prize:
- Quo Master brush set, valued CAD60
- Quo Diamond and Ice palette, CAD25.

Second prize:
- Quo 4-pc brush set, CAD35
- Quo Diamonds Are Forever palette, CAD20.

Please see individual pictures below for the contents. Click to enlarge.

Quo Master brush set comes with:
- Blush brush
- Foundation brush
- Crease Blender brush
- Definer Shadow brush
- Liner/ Brow brush, and
- Large Concealer brush.
Also includes a purple studded custom-designed bag.

Quo Diamond and Ice palette has:
- 12 eyeshadows (12 x 1gr)
- 3 blushes (3 x 2gr)
- 2 pressed powders (2 x 4gr) - on the top tray
- 12 lip glosses (12 x 0.7gr)
- 4 applicators - on the pull-out tray at the bottom.

The eyeshadows are more pigmented than they appear here, due to the flash. Trust me :)

Quo regular 4-pc brush set includes:
- Blush brush
- All Over Shadow brush
- Liner/ Brow brush, and
- Lip brush.

This is the only full-sized brush set that Quo has together with the individual brushes on regular display.

Quo Diamonds Are Forever palette has:
- 6 eyeshadows (6 x 1.4gr), and
- 2 blushes (2 x 3gr).

The colours, again, are prettier IRL, especially the blushes :)

  1. I live in outside of toronto (about 45 mins), and I love the quo palettes that they make every year, and my fav thing by far is their lip tint. I own a few!
    my email is and I tweeted your giveaway:!/emlangille/status/42243802957750272

  2. GTA! I only have the Quo stippling brush but unfortunately I don't use foundation anymore so I haven't been using the stippling brush at all lately. But other than that, I would love to try some of their other brushes and makeup!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. I am blogging from Hong Kong and we don't have Quo here :( so I can't say what Quo products are my favourites.

    It's unbelievable but I've never tried Quo brushes before. I've only tried a cream eyeliner (weasn't very good) & a few at-home spa items like their eye masks and facial gloves. I reeeally love their eye pencil sharpener though. It's affordable, sturdy, and comes with a large & small sharpener :D

    I retweeted the giveaway too: :)

  18. Hello! Thank you for the giveaway :D
    My name is Kim and I live in the GTA. I currently only own one Quo brush; which is the eye defining brush. I have to say that I don't use it too often because it feels quite scratchy on my lids; how unfortunate. However, I would LOVE to try out new Quo brushes!

    Thank you, again! I love your weekly sales posts! <3

  19. Hi, I am a new follower from Calgary. I have never tried Quo before but they look like quality products.

  20. Hi! I am a follower living in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba (at the moment). I have a smudger brush from Quo and I like it very much. And I look forward to your weekly flyer posts!

  21. Whoa! I actually picked up some Quo mineral eyeshadow for the first time a couple of weeks ago - The peacock Minerals Matter Eye Quad to be exact. I looooove the colours (the reason why I had to get it in the first place)

    I'm Peggy, Right now I'm living way up in Northwestern Ontario :) Think in between Thunder Bay and Winnipeg on the Minnesota border. It really is middle of nowhere, with absolutely awful frigid winters. But it gets all kinds of pretty in the summer, so that kinda makes it worthwhile.

  26. Hi, I retwitted your post!/Sparkled_Beauty/status/42623925464739840
    I'm from just outside Toronto. I love Quo and my favorite one is the purple Christmas palette, I use it almost everyday

  27. Toronto born and raised :)
    You know what? I haven't tried anything else from the line, other than a gloss that was way too glittery for me, a primer and concealer duo they had a few years back, and two brushes, that I hardly use! Maybe I should try buying a few new things eventually...cause I feel like I'm missing out when I read your posts XD

  28. Hiya :)

    I'm Kristina, and I'm from San Diego, but my parents are originally from Philippines. I have not used any Quo brands, but I hear amazing things from Michelle Phan. I always wanted to try it.
