I didn't expect to be getting gifty again quite so soon, but as it turns out Quo is killing it this year with a sizeable collection of holiday options. If you're not computing what Quo is, you're clearly not from around here (aka Canada.) Shoppers Drug Mart is the OG beauty hub for most Canadian beauty fans, with Quo being the in house brand. They've been known to do some fun seasonal collections and have done it again this year. Want a closer look? You know what to do...

Sometimes you only need the littlest of gift, and sometimes it's better if that gift is also hangable. Quo has you covered. They have a few little-bittle-gitables that double as ornaments including the Quo Lip Gloss Ornament that features a cute little raspberry colored gloss with a very nicely pigmented formula and the Quo Airbrush Sponge. Don't sleep on these sponges! If you spot them, grab a bunch because they are super squishy (but no too squishy) and perfect at a fraction of the price of those other ones (you know the ones...)

If ever there was a time for a little metallic lip action, it's the holidays. The Quo Metallic Lip Set includes three liquid lipsticks with a metallic finish. There's a rosy pink, rosy copper, and chocolate plum that all wear quite well. The formula dries down to an almost matte feel, but never gets to a fully flat finish. The give that the formula has makes these super comfortable, but they do begin to break down rather easily once you eat or drink.

Just a hop and skip from metallic town is the always holiday appropriate glitterville. Eyes are treated to some glitzy fun with the Quo Metallic Eyeshadow Set. The set includes a soft golden metallic shade packed with gold glitter, a rose gold metallic with subtle matching glitter, and a charcoal metallic packed with silver glitter. I was skeptical of these, as the bases on the lighter shades are a little sheer, but once these dry... They look incredible! I'll be using them as toppers, but they can also be used over the lid for a gorgeous wash of shimmer and glitter.

No holiday beauty collection is truly complete without a little brush set action, and Quo is bringing it with the Quo Cosmic Brush Set. With glitter and rose gold represented it's true thing of beauty. The brushes have the aforementioned rose gold and super soft bristles. They have half-length handles (aka they're travel size) and include multi-purpose all-over, angled eye contour. crease, and concealer brushes. The best part though? The makeup bag. It's a black based multi-coloured glitter fabric that is just stunning. I kind of want to use it as a little evening clutch...

Last up, the Quo Sweet Cheeks Blush Set. With three dual-shade blushes, this trio is a very cute giftable. The blushes are all matte with a silky feeling (if not a touch powdery) formula that apply beautifully on skin. They're nicely pigmented and give a really natural looking flush of colour. The shades include Baby Blush (pale pink and rosy-nude), Coral Crush (soft peach and pink-coral), Lady Lush (tan-beige and dusty red-berry).

Overall, some really cute and very useable gifting options from Quo. You never really know how gift set products are going to fare, so I was really impressed with these formulas. As you may know, you can now shop SDM online, so it's extra easy to shop these holiday bits.  What do you think? Are you into holiday gift sets for your own stash or for gifting? Found any you love this year?
