For those who don’t want to spend the better part of December at the mall searching for the perfect gifts Shoppers Drug Mart always has a great variety with lots of festive pre-packaged sets that are ready to go! For the men out there who dread those pushy crowds and the uncertainty of choosing the right gift for the special woman in your life beauty products and makeup are always a hit!
From your brows to the tip of your nails QUO has released lots of cute goodies that will satisfy your makeup cravings. Nude eye shadow palettes have been all the rage this year and it seems that almost every brand has released their own collection of neutral, flattering hues. QUO’s Back to Basics Nude Palette includes 12 everyday shades from cream, beige, plum, brown, black, champagne, silver, gold, taupe and more to accentuate and sculpt the eyes. The range of matte and shimmer hues provide nice versatility and if you want to go bold simply deepen the crease with the darker hues to create more depth and contrast. The texture of the shadows is very velvety and smooth with good color pay-off and long-wear pigment. You can pick it up at Shoppers for just $25.00.
Quo also offers a range of glam polish and rich, trendy hues to help get your nails holiday ready! I love glitter this time of year so the shade Outrageous has just the right amount of gold bling to put me in the holiday spirit. Wild Child is a deep berry hue that can take you from fall right into winter and looks ravishing when topped with sparkle. The polish retails for $10.00 each.
There seemed to be a lot of attention on eyebrows this year as the terms “brows on fleek” flooded social media and women everywhere perfected their shaping technique. The Brow Wow Palette is decked out in a cute, eye catching design and comes with 3 brow powders ranging from light, medium and dark plus a handy brow cream to help keep those hairs in place. Although these shades are too light for me the pigmentation is pretty good and helps fill in sparse areas nicely. It retails for $20.00.
For lip gloss junkies the Lips All Around set includes 8 mini glosses in a range of neutral lip enhancing shades from pink, berry, mauve and nude. I thought the formula would be quite sheer but some shades have a nice, juicy pop of color that can be layered to medium coverage. They also have a creamy moisturizing texture and make great stocking stuffers if you want to break up the set. It retails for $25.00.
The Cosmetic Cracker Set is a fun gift and who wouldn’t enjoy pulling apart the pretty packaging to see what’s tucked inside! There is still something exciting about revealing a hidden prize and these babies come with a pretty eye shadow and a mini gloss! The pink crackers have a mauve candy scented gloss and a shimmery silver eye shadow while the gold and black has a pink gloss and slightly darker shadow. The set of four retails for $20.00.
Contouring has also been a hot makeup trend this year and the QUO Contouring Craze Palette with two brushes and beautiful packaging is also a great gift! It comes with 2 contour shades and a highlight for shaping and sculpting the face. It retails for $30.00.
