Quo brings Renaissance Flare for Spring 2010!

Quo is such a fun line so I delighted to see that their spring collection was out when I stopped by Shoppers yesterday.  You will still get my regular "new and notable at Shoppers" post, but I thought this collection was so cute (and extensive) that it deserved a post of it's own!
Renaissance Eye Quad - $20 - The colourful, metallic cases are very reminiscent of MAC's Royal Assets Holiday 2007 collection (if you don't remember it, go here to see a pic).  There are four quads:  Da Vinci - shades of brown and tan, Angelico - silvery greens and purples, Michelangelo - beautiful blues and Raphael - lively pinks and purples.  The pigmentation is great and I don't find Quo eyeshadows at all flakey - so for the price, you really can't beat these quads!
All-Over Colour Stick - $15 - multi-purpose makeup stick that can be used to add colour to the face, cheeks, eyes and lips.  It has a colour stick on one end and a brush for blending on the other.  Comes in 3 colours:  Charm - subtle pink blush, Jinx -  playful bronze and Venus - shimmery-brown.
Jumbo Lip-Gloss Stick - $12 - I love a lipgloss stick!  I find them so much easier to apply precisely and much less sticky.  This one is lightweight yet creamy and contains plant-derived ingredients.  It's also mineral oil and paraben free.  In 6 shades:  pink petal - translucent pink, nectar - coral, lavish - cherry red,  daiquiri - burgundy, currant - plum red and ginger twist - burnt peach.
Sheer Lipliner - $12 - In 6 colours: bloom - rose, mulberry - terra cotta, brandy - warm brown, bitter sweet - crimson red, delicious - deep burgundy and amber twist - copper brown.
Jumbo Eyeshadow Pencil - $12 - You know how much I love sparkle and these make it so easy to add it! I usually find with powder sparkle eyeshadows and loose pigments that the sprakle ends up eyewhere but the oil gel form that these are cuts out the fallout.  I'm also happy to know that all the ingredients are plant-derived and contain no preservatives.  They come in 6 colours:  crystal - silver, onyx - intense black, opal - smoky blue, peridot - jewel green, rose quartz - soft pink and amber - subtle bronze.

Pump Up the Volume Mascara - $14 - the black and brown ones will now be part of the regular line, the turquoise and amethyst was or may not remain, which would be a shame because I am in love with the turquoise!

What are you lusting for in the Quo spring line?  I'm thinking I need the turquoise mascara, the nectar gloss stick so I can keep up with the orange colour trend, the peridot eyeshadow pencil because I love to glitter and all of the quads - for starters of course!

  1. Just saw these last night too, they look so fun. Quo is doing a good job huh?

  2. I know, super cute right? Did you pick up anything?

    Best, Lisamarie

  3. I was totally reminded of the MAC holiday palettes when I saw that pic. I will have to go check this out, the turquoise and amethyst mascaras sound like something I might want to pick up!

  4. It's so nice that you guys understand stuff like that - I pointed the resemblance out to my husband and he looked at me like I was deranged or something! ;-)

    Best, Lisamarie

  5. Ha, I was just going to say that the palettes look eerily reminiscent of one of the MAC Holiday collections XD
