Today I'm bringing you the Quo Luxury Lipstick Wardrobe.

This set contains four full-sized matte lipsticks.

The lipsticks come in a beautiful red and gold embossed box, and are housed in a rose gold tube.  And bonus, the lipsticks *click* when they're closed all the way - which is always a plus for me (Nothing worse than a lipstick that doesn't close firmly, then loses the cap in your purse).

First up is 'Orchid', a somewhat neutral baby pink, with a hint of lilac.  I thought this one would look too stark on my skintone, but I ended up really liking it!

'Crème' is an orange-toned nude beige colour.  This one took a few layers to show up - at first I couldn't tell if it was actually on my lips or not.  The formula for 'Crème' was a bit finicky for my lips, because it would cling to any chapped spots, and create patches.

'Fig' is your everyday very wearable colour - a clay mauve.  It was definitely a winner.

'Raspberry Red' is a great name for this final colour.  It reminds me of the inside of a raspberry jelly donut!  The pigmentation on this one was the best of the bunch - it's a one swiper!

I really like this set!  I think it's very well-rounded as far as wearable colours.  You have three pretty neutral colours, and a pop of red for the festive season.  The pigmentation on 'Orchid', 'Crème', and 'Fig' were a tad bit lacking (they needed a few layers to really show up), but if you're willing to put in a bit of work, the results are lovely.  And the price is right too!  Four full-sized matte lipsticks for $30, which breaks down to $7.50 per lipstick - great value.

I think the Quo Luxury Lipstick Wardrobe is a great gift option for the beauty lover in your life.  I'd be very happy to receive this as a gift.

You can find the Quo Luxury Lipstick Wardrobe for $30.00 CAD at Shoppers Drug Mart.
