Canada (Birthday) Haul!

My birthday was last month and I am now the ripe, old age of 23.  My boyfriend surprised me with a package filled with makeup that is only available in Canada.

Some time in August I went clubbing and brought my favorite lipgloss with me, which was Quo lipgloss in Pout.  It fell out of my pocket on the dance floor unbeknownst to me and I was so upset that I told my boyfriend I was going to buy 6 more of them when I returned to Montreal.  He promptly went out the next day and bought me 6 more lipglosses.....

Quo released a palette either to promote women's health awareness or to help fund raise for it.  The palette includes 6 eyeshadows and 2 blushes.

I haven't had the best luck with Lise Watier products so far (probably because I have only tested their eyeshadows) but my boyfriend decided to take a stab and get me this beauty.  This is a lovely shimmery charcoal liquid liner, similar to Makeup Forever and Urban Decay's versions.

Here are some items from Quo's Fall 2011 Collection: A blush duo and an eyeshadow duo.

This is Plum's the word, one of the four duos that was available.  I featured this as well as the Lise Watier liner in my latest FOTD.

This blush palette is one of two that was available in the collection, and did not survive the journey from Quebec to California as well as I would have liked.

I hope this was entertaining for those of you that don't have access to Canadian makeup.  I wonder, would anybody be interested in doing a swap or a giveaway?  I'm heading to Montreal this Christmas and I can pick up some stuff.  Let me know!


  1. Your boyfriend is SUCH a sweetie! Very thoughtful. Great post, and happy birthday! I just turned 23 too.
