Finally another review! Firstly though I want to apologize for the yellow background, I thought it would be neat but it just looks.... bright.
Today I'm reviewing Quo Jumbo Lipgloss Stick in Currant. For those of you in Canada, Quo is the Shopper's Drug Mart cosmetics line available in stores. Though this pencil is a bit expensive for drug store (like all Quo items) the quality on this is great. It costs around $12 CND. It's moisturizing, highly pigmented, non-sticky, easy to apply and wears better than the average gloss. It also has a subtle staining effect so if you happen to eat something and it gets rubbed off a hint of colour is still there.
The colour on this is lovely for autumn, a deep berry plum thats just a little vampy. The nice thing about this though is it's easy to sheer out so you only get a touch of colour instead of the full built up affect.
This has quite a strong scent, but I personally love it. It's black current and sweet, but does diffuse after about five minutes from application.
I also enjoy how easy this is to apply with the pencil packaging and how because it's slim it travels well (the cap is sturdy, it's not going to slide off on you! That is always my issue, or I've shoved it on too hard and it's started to crack. This does neither.) The only downsides to this is that you have to sharpen it and therefore waste product. I really wish this had a twist bottom so when it gets down you could just twist up more. It does sharpen without fuss though which is good, because it doesn't look like it would go well. This is due to the shiny sleek plastic finish on the outside of the stick. It looks much more high end than it is, which is a nice bonus.
