What it is: Quo‘s Minerals Matter eyeshadow quad, in Downtown Brown. Just as a heads-up, keep in mind that the shadows on the SDM/Quo site are way off.
Mica, ethylhexyl palmate, zinc stearate, kaolin, phenoxyethanol, sodium dehydroacetate, tocopherol, ascorbyl palmitate. May contain mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxides, CI 75470, CI 77288, CI 77007, CI 77742, CI77510.
A touch warmer/more bronze than I wanted them to be, but overall it’s a great daytime neutrals quad. Starting in the top left and moving clockwise, there’s a nice hilight colour (it’s like an apricot-champage,) a bronzey medium brown, a darker brown with reddish undertones, and another (more sheer) medium brown.The verdict? If you’re looking for a neturals quad, you’re in Canada, and you’re happy with netural-warm shadows, this is a great buy at $16 per quad (if I remember correctly.) Quo goes on sale often, too! You can’t create anything super-dramatic with this, obviously, but it’s gorgeous and definitely suitable for office wear.
