Quo Beauty Hydrating Facial Serum Review

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I’m reviewing the Quo Beauty Hydrating Facial Serum – another one of my recent purchases from Shoppers Drug Mart / Pharmaprix. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, so I’m ready to let you know how it measures up. [info in italics taken from the Shoppers website]

Hydrating Facial Serum formulated with hyaluronic acid is just what your skin has been waiting for. The light weight texture & formula helps leave your skin feeling soft and smooth with a velvety finish.

Vitamin C helps to even out the skin tone while helping diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Sodium Hyaluronate (a derivative of Hyaluronic Acid) penetrates deeper layers of the skin to attract and hold moisture which, overtime, works to enhance & replenish skin. Vegan Cruelty Free

Another budget friendly, drugstore brand!

This facial serum is lightweight, non-sticky and sinks into the skin quickly, and adds extra hydration. It contains two of my favourite ingredients – hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. My skin loves anything with vitamin C in it.

It plays nicely with my moisturizer, spf and with makeup too. Also – it has little to no scent! Always a plus in my opinion as I don’t enjoy using over-scented skincare products.

Have you tried this facial serum?

Quo Beauty Breathable Nail Colour Review and Swatching – Tutu and Angel Kisses

Hello, hello! Welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I have a little review and swatching of the Quo Beauty Breathable Nail Colour & Treatment in the shades Tutu and Angel Kisses . I purchased them recently from Shoppers Drug Mart / Pharmaprix [info in italics taken from the Shoppers website].

Let your nails breath while still wearing polish! The healthy solution: Breathable Nail Colour. Help keep the natural physiology of your nails protected, while water-vapor and air can still pass through. For best results and to extend the wear of your manicure, use with Breathable Base & Top.

Features and Benefits: 1. Air and water vapor permeablility features 2. Fast drying 3. Protects against nail discoloration and yellowing 4. Flexible film that helps increase resistance to chipping

Tutu:

The shade Tutu is a soft ballet pink – very soft and pretty. I think that it definitely needs three coats -maybe you can get away with two depending on how evenly you apply – as it can come out streaky.

Quo Breathable Nail Colour & Treatment Tutu – Three Coats (ignore the dry cuticles)

Angel Kisses:

The shade Angel Kisses is a silvery pink shimmer polish. It looks ok with one coat, and perfect with two coats as you can see in my photos.

Both polishes are have a nice shine to them without a topcoat – but I’m sure that you can extend the wear with a good topcoat. I’m very hard on my nails – between all the hand washing, and hand santizer and general wear and tear – nail polish just does not last more than three to four days (maximum) for me regardless of the brand!

Overall, I really like this polish – it doesn’t seem to be as hard on the nails as most. I’ll likely purchase a few more colours for spring / summer.

Have you tried this nail polish?

Quo Blending Sponge Review

Quo Blending Sponge

Hello, hello!

Today I have a little review of the Blending Sponge from Quo – a brand that is carried at Pharmaprix / Shopper’s Drug Mart. I needed to replace both of my makeup sponges, but figured that I would just buy one first to see how I liked it. [info in italics taken from the Shopper’s Drug Mart Beauty Boutique website]

Quo Blending Sponge

Blend your way to a flawless finish with this latex-free sponge. It enables precision application of cream and liquid foundations especially around nose and eye area.

I’ve never tried the official Beauty Blender, so I can’t comment on how the Quo Blending Sponge compares, but I have tried and reviewed sponges from Real Techniques and Crown Brush

The Quo Blending Sponge is very soft, yet bouncy. I’ve mainly been using this blending sponge for concealer – both for my under eye and anywhere I need some extra coverage. I like the pointed end for blending out my Becca Brightening Under Eye concealer.

The price was good too – less than $10 CAD! All in all, I really like this one!
