Product Review: Quo Eiffel Tower Lipstick

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten
Brand: Quo
Name: Eiffel Tower Lipstick
Size: n/a
Price: approx. $15 CAD

Shade Tried: Toulouse

"Capture the romance with these six inspired hues and perfect your pout with one of the season’s hottest shades. The Eiffel Tower Lipstick includes a lip gloss and corresponding liner concealed in the cap. Enriched with Vitamin E and contains moisturizing ingredients to keep your smile radiant." (description from press release)

To Purr About:
- cute idea to include the liner the gloss in one convenient packaging
- the liner and gloss shade both matched almost perfectly to the shade you see
- lip liner went on smoothly and easily
- gloss glided on easily
- gloss wasn't sticky at all
- gloss smelled like chocolate

Claws Out:
- you don't get very much product for the price you pay
- the gloss is applied on with a brush, which I found hard to control
- the gloss is a little liquid-y, which meant that if you didn't blot right away and pressed your lips together, you moved the gloss around your lips easily

Final Comments:
The idea of having a lip liner and lip gloss packaged together to make a "lipstick" is really cute, and I was happy to see that the shade that the liner and gloss left on my lips matched what I saw in the bottle, so you can choose your shade visually. The liner went on really smoothly and the gloss was also quite smooth. The chocolate scent was soooo nice, and my only complaint is that the gloss is a little too much of a liquid and you definitely need to blot, otherwise you'll shift the product around on your lips, creating lighter patches and darker edges. The shade I tried, Toulouse is really pretty - a dark rose shade that wasn't too red, but not too pink either.
