Spring is here! *Looks out window and sees snow* Okay maybe not outside, but in my mind it is. I’ve got one of three eyeshadow palettes from Quo’s Prismatic Spring 2016 Collection.
Like I mentioned, ‘Infinity’ is one of three new eyeshadow palettes from Quo. The other two are ‘Colourful Life’, and ‘Intergalactic’. That packaging! The swirls of purple, pink, black, and silver make for a pretty water-marble design. Compared to the other two palettes, the colours in the ‘Infinity’ palette are in the purple/nude family.
I had a really tough time swatching this palette. I usually dip in my finger once, wiggle it a bit, and then apply a swipe to my arm. However, for most of the colours in this palette, I found myself going back in and dipping my finger four to five times, to see any type of colour payoff on my arm and on camera – it was actually a little of frustrating. While the colours are very much my style, they were not pigmented enough to show up on me. The only colours that I thought had a so-so amount of pigment were the dark purple (on the lower-right corner), and the brown (next to the purple) – but even the most pigmented colours were chalky. I think this palette would work for someone who likes a more muted, and not so in-your-face eye look, because when worn, the colours are still there, they just don’t have much of a presence.
You can find the Quo Prismatic Eye Palette at Shoppers Drug Mart for $18 each.
