Today I have a review of a palette from the Quo Spring 2016 Prismatic Collection.
I played around with the Prismatic Face Palette ‘Moonwalk’.
‘Moonwalk’ is the lighter option of two face palettes, the other being ‘Stardust’. The palette contains a blush, a highlighter, a bronzer, and a mirror.
The packaging is great because it has a big mirror, and doesn’t waste space by having a compartment for a brush, which means more room for product *yay!*. It’s easy to open, and clicks when you close it, so you know that it actually shut (small pet peeve – hard to open palettes, and products that don’t click shut).
I was 50/50 on this palette. The only reason that I’m not totally sold is because some of the colours didn’t work for me – just personal preference. I liked the formula of the powders – they applied very light and didn’t feel heavy on my face. The blush was nicely pigmented, but leaned a bit too red for my skin tone. The shade reminded me of something in the NARS ‘Orgasm’ category. The highlight was a bit to subtle for me, because I love a loud highlight that that says ‘I’M HERE, AND I’M FABULOUS!”. The star of this palette, for me, was the bronzer. It’s very subtle, and most importantly for pale gals like me….it’s not too red or dark. While not amazing for contouring, this bronzer works nicely if you apply it freely with a fluffy bronzer brush, to warm up the face.
You can find the Quo Prismatic Face Palette for $18 at Shoppers Drug Mart.
