New and Notable at Shoppers Drug Mart - L'Oréal, Clarins, Quo and Marcelle!

L'Oréal Youth Code is a new skincare line specifically developed for the 30+ year old crowd whose skin displays the signs of today's hectic lifestyle: stress, fatigue and aging.  Developed to boost skin recovery, the patented GenActiv Technology works to reactivate the skin's repair genes to help recoup its youthful qualities of smoothness, vitality and radiance.  It also improves the ability to defend itself from aggressions and to retain much needed moisture.  The GenActiv Technology is paired with Adenosine, which has now been identified as essential to cellular functioning and fundamental part of DNA that can slow down the effects of aging.

  1. I love the brushes. Do they have this store in the US? Or do they have a website?

  2. Afraid that Quo is a Shoppers Drug Mart exclusive - only available in store! You will need to find a Canadian friend to do a custom purchase for you!

    Best, Lisamarie

  3. Shoppers is such a dangerous place for me lately. Love those colorful Quo brushes :)

  4. I totally noticed the Quo brushes in different colours! Some of their brushes are good some are not so good (ie bronzing stippling brush). I am more of a fan of their professional line.

  5. the Quo brushes are not worth the money... unless they're 40% off , the quality is average && the hairs are so sparse

  6. I love Quo brushes!! I also got the smoky shadow palette. Love the last two colours next to the cream shadow!
