I Live to Shine


NOTD: Quo Perfectly Polished

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

Another Limited Edition shade from Quo by Orly is up today, as it might be gone before you know it. This is Perfectly Polished :)

A purple base, packed with gold shimmer, it is a gorgeous shade. Not a duochrome by nature, but because the shimmers are very strong, at certain angles, Perfectly Polished looks more gold than purple.

During swatching, my mind kept questioning like I had seen this colour before. Then I realized it was my beloved Lise Watier Violet Dore, also Limited Edition. The base of Violet Dore is just a tad cooler with more blue undertone, but the gold shimmers are unmistakably similar.

Sorry to tell you about a LE dupe of a LE since it would be gone soon, just like its predecessor, but at least you still have a bit of time to grab Perfectly Polished, if you missed out on Violet Dore.

Pigmentation is also good, here I used two coats. The shimmers are very fine, so removal was easy, no scrubbing.

Needless to say, I fell in love with Perfectly Polished, for the exact same reason I did with Violet Dore. And it has warm tone, I already got a backup of it :)

See the shimmers? Told you they are intense! I always have a special love toward colours like this. Perfectly Polished should belong to the core collection, I'm telling you.

Hope you all had a relaxing weekend. Squirt and I decided to check out the soon-to-be-closed Zellers. The sales were 60 - 70% off most products. Wished we had a house to shop for, as household items were really cheap. Makeup was trashed into bins, messy and tested. Got some toy sets for Squirt and shape wear for me, glamorous huh? :)

Also found some boots on clearance at Walmart for like $9 (reg. $35). If you still need a pair, check there. Have a good start of the week!


  1. Very pretty! Reminds me of Orly Oui
