Quo Fall 2014 - Eyeshadow Palettes

QUO is one of those brands that I've always seen but aside from their makeup brushes, never tried out any of their makeup products. I guess I'm a person of habit and don't stray far from brands I'm accustomed to. 

Well recently I got the chance to try out some of QUO's fall and holiday collection and I'm happy to report I'm pleasantly surprised at the products. Today's post is on the QUO's Fall 2014 eyeshadow palettes* in Fairytale and Nightingale.

Fairytale

Nightingale
First up, lets talk about the packaging. The one thing that stood out to me was the large mirror these palettes come with. The mirror take up the entire width of the palette, great for when you're travelling with these palettes! 

Fairytale for me is more of a day time palette. It has a good selection of colours from pinks, taupes, golds, and darker shades to take your look to nighttime. I played around with this palette last week and pigmentation is great! I will note that the pink shade (2nd to the right) was a bit chalky to work with. But I can't remember the last time I wore pink eyeshadow so for me this isn't really much of an issue. 

Nightingale as the name mentions, I think is more nighttime appropriate. My favourite shade is the the gunmetal grey/blue with shimmer in it (3rd from the left). I know I'm going to use it loads during the upcoming holiday parties and festivities. Pigmentation on all shades is great, aside from the matte light purple (1st on the right). This one really was the sore looser in my opinion from this palette. 

I think these are great palettes for anyone that's getting into makeup as they give a good selection of shades that can be used for both day and night. 

They're part of the Quo Fall 2014 collection so I'm not sure how much longer they'll be in stores. Each costs $18. 

What are some of your favourite eyeshadow palettes?
