Quo Blue Lagoon Mineral Eye Duo


Shoppers Drug Mart was having a 20x the points sale this past Saturday!
Well, of course being me... I have been waiting for this sale to get some
necessities, as well as some things I have been wanting to try :)

I have been looking for a natural blue/aqua pressed eyeshadow for the
longest time! It's really quite hard and I stumbled across the Quo Minerals
line at Shoppers the week before. I was shocked because I didn't even
know that they had a mineral makeup line! I was glancing at the eyeshadows
and I saw this beautiful shade of blue and gold, glittery dark olive green.
Then I read, 'Mineral Eyeshadow' and fell in love! =p

The case is quite sturdy and there is no way this will pop open in your
purse or anywhere, for that matter. You can open 1 or 2 of the eyeshadows
at the same time, because they both have their own compartments, along
with a handy little mirror (it's actually quite good and not blurry).

It comes with a double ended sponge applicator, which has a rounded side
and a slightly pointed tip side for lining the eyes :) I'm a fan of sponge
applicators and I use them all the time, so nothing negative to say about them :)

The eyeshadows themselves are quite pigmented and I'm really loving this
shade of blue! very pretty. I took a few photos because it can look slightly
different according to the light :)

This retails for $20, but there was a 15% off sale on Quo eye products.
I paid $17 and Quo will always be having sales, so look out for them!

Ingredients: Ethylhexl Palmitate, Zinc Stearate, Kaolin, Sodium Dehydroacetate,
Tocopherol, Phenoxyethanol, Ascorbyl Palmitate

*Notice the 'PRODUCT OF USA', on the back of the packaging.
I thought Quo was a Canadian brand! I'm confused -.-

I'm very subtle with makeup, so I will mainly be using these to line
my eyes... I can't say much about the staying power, just because I
rarely ever wear eyeshadow all over my lid. I like to buy eyeshadows
because I have the option of using them anyway I want :)

and I have been looking for a toilet odour eliminator for when I use
public washrooms >> haha very random but I found the Just a Drop
at Shoppers and decided to try it out :) no one likes to use a stinky restroom >>

  6. Mimi: hmm it works alright, I would like to have
    the citrus version of this instead though...
    The Eucalyptus doesn't smell as nice and minty as
    I thought it would ><
