Quo On the Go Palette Tutorial (All Drugstore)

At Shoppers Drug Mar the carry a brand called Quo. Right now they have the cutest make u kits and Palettes out for the holidays I picked to the On The Go Palette and decided to do an All Drugstore Makeup look with it. The Palette is quite pretty. Its a little shimmery but it has a few very nice browns in it. This palette has three eye shadows, 1 blush,and 3 lipsticks. It also come with a mirror and two little brushes to apply it all. 

This palette cost me 15.00 at shoppers and i think its worth it. 

In this look I used all drugstore products. At the end of this post there will be a list of everything I used. The only thing I used that wasn't drugstore was the brushes which I bought from ELF at 

Here is my Base Face in which I already applied my Foundation, Concealer, Powder and Bronzer. You can see that I Conoured my cheeks a little with the NYC Sunny Bronzer. I don't have the most prominent Cheek bones so i find doing this brings them out a little. Not the most attractive picture :)  but you get the point! Keep checking back for a  post on how to contour your face!

The three eye shadows are a shimmery off white color that is great for a highlight and a base shade. The middle shade is a medium shimmery brown that is very warm. The third is a darker brown that is also shimmery. I used the light as a base, the medium o the middle and outer of my lid and the darker in my crease and as an outer V. 

I lined my upper lid with a brown liner in a very thin line. I also think you could wing the liner out and it would look really nice. I didn't do this. I lined the outer side of my bottom lashes and smudged it with my finger. I topped it with two coats of mascara and i was done with the eyes. 

I applied the blush on the apple of my cheeks and worked towards my temples. I like this blush. Its very soft and complementary for my pale skin.

The lipsticks are just OK to me. There is a light peachy nude color that I used in this look over the nude lip pencil. The middle color is very metallic and I cant find a reason why I would wear it on its own. I may use it under a lip gloss to counter act the shininess. The darker color is quite nice and i can myself using it with a very simple eye. I don't normally wear dark browns but i'm trying to try new looks. 

 I like this look. Its warm and appealing and i think it make my brown eyes pop. 

 I also tried the look with my hair down and a little wavy and my bangs pinned back. I think both looks are nice but i think i like it up better. 

I took a few pics up close so you could see the eyes better.

I look like i have a giant nose in this hahahaha
As you can see these colors blend really well. And the colors are really nice. The only down fall i think is the metallic lipstick in the top middle. I personally wont use it. It's too bold for me. 15.00 bucks for this palette in a good deal. The quality is quite nice and ive been wearing it for 6 1/2 hours and its still going strong. So longevity is good also. I think ill use this palette enough to warrant the 15.00 price. I's a great alternative to higher end palettes. 

Let me know what you think of this look and if you've tried this Palette.
