Overall.. they are good brushes. I would recommend staying away from the powder brush. Unless your going for a hairy look that day! ;) it just sheds lots.. I LOVEE the eye makeup brushes and concealor brushes. Even the bronzing brush (alothough it sheds a bit too but not as much and is big and fluffy for an all over look). The eyeliner brush is great! I have a couple as i use one for my brows and 2 others for eye lineing. Reasonable price and Shoppers will put them on sale for 40% sometimes. BONUS! not many brushes go on sale. ohh and quo sharpener was WONDERFUL! and CHEAPPP!!!!

I bought a set of these as my first set of brushes, I probably have about ten total. They were great for a starter set, but I'm really ready to move on from them at this point. I find they shed really terribly...sometimes my boyfriend will come up to me and pick big thick bristles off my neck or shoulders (from the powder brush). It's not great, honestly. If you can get these on sale some of them are ok, I do actually really like the bronzer brush and will probably keep using it. Other than that...ehh, kinda expensive and be prepared to be picking stray hairs off yourself from all the shedding. Not my best purchase, and I don't think I would go back to this brand.

better than Sephora brushes. And cheaper too. Will buy it again.

I've been using Quo brushes for ages, as a cheaper alternative to mac. I really like them, and I notice now that they have a ton of selection compared to before. They arent as good as mac, but for half the price, they are amazingly soft and have held up for a good 5 years and counting. My only complaint is that the blush brushes pick up TOO much product however now that I notice more selection, I am going to try out a few others that look finer on the top (like the skunk brush).

Recently bought the Quo Professional Bronzer Brush, but was disappointed by the quality.
Yes the brush is full, soft yet firm/dense, great for medium to full coverage of powder, exactly what I was looking for.
BUT when I cleaned it, lots of lint came out. There was dye that kept being washed out. And there was a weird smell on it even after several rinses of soap.
I did not try it on my face, and refunded it.
For $45CDN +tax, I expected more even if it's made in China.
It would have been a great brush if the manufacturing of it was better.

Quo sells many great brushes. Some of them need some cleaning up and tweeking and some of them are just plain PERFECT. The brushes differ a lot. There are quite a few brushes with sheddings, etc. I am, however, very lucky because none of my brushes have ever shed on me, and I can easily say I have more or less then 3/4 of their brush collection. They have every brush you can think of.
One thing they need improvement on is their eyeshadow brush. Quo just needs one basic eyeshadow brush to complete their collection.

Got a foundation brush and it consistently gives me streaky finishes. I'm not pleased with it. It's my least favorite brush. I think quo brushes are overpriced and overrated. Only get them if there's a sale, and even then you're better off getting studio line brushes from elf online even with shipping factored in.

It really surprises me how many people like these brushes. They're okay if you don't wear makeup often and just want something for when you do (which was me a few years ago when I got them) , but if you are looking for high quality brushes these are not.
I have the powder and blush brush and some eyeshadow brushes. They all bleed dye like crazy even though they have been washed many times. The only one that doesn't is the liner brush which I think is synthetic.
The brushes do feel soft on the back of my hand but when I use them on my face I sometimes find them quite irritating. After I'm finished I always have to pick the hairs off my face that fell out. Lately I have found that the handles are getting loose on the eye brushes too.
I still use these brushes every day but not because I really want to. Still saving up for some really nice brushes. Don't waste your money on these, guys. They just aren't worth it.

I would never pay full price for these brushes, and even at 40% off, I feel that they are still overpriced!
I can find much better quality brushes online or in other stores for a fraction of what these cost! If you're able to get your hands on Ecotools brushes or Lacross (Sally Hansen) definitely go for those!

I have all the QUO brushes and alot of MAC as well and I totally agree on the quality :) I usually wait till they go on sale which makes it even better!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Hazel
these brushes are a great alternative to MAC. they aren't super cheap in price but still cheaper than MAC by about 25% and just as good. I have a mixture of MAC and QUO brushes and they all work the same. Quo is a great company. Lucky for me it's a canadian brand. Unfortunately, it's only available in canada so not everyone can benefit from their great products, especially the brushes.

Good Selection of brushes. All of them are pretty good for their price range. Especially love their blush, bronzer, liner and smudger brushes. Won't go anywhere without them!

I got the Quo angled brush on 40% off recently and absolutely love it! I use it for gel-liners and it applies a fantastic thin line to my eyelid. I've tried other angled brushes from HE brands such as MAC and Stila and have just not got the same results as I have with this brush. I think it's because the bristles to this brush is on the stiffer side and comes together to a thin edge. The brush is sturdy with a solid handle. I'm sure it'll last a long time if it is well taken care of.

Quo brushes are great for a starter but you learn that these brushes aren't the highest quality. I have almost every Quo brush form the regular line (grey handle) and a few Quo Professional brushes (black handle). The bristles are quite soft but i have issues with the manufacturing. With a number of brushes, the powder and blush brush in particular, sheds like crazy. Sheds when i'm applying and when i'm shampooing. A couple of brushes have had the handles come off completely and had to superglue it back on. I'm definitely not satisfied with the quality of the regular Quo brush line. I just recently got the Quo Professional brushes but haven't had much use yet so i'll update later. It would've gotten 2 stars, but because of the price and some brushes are great, i gave it a 3 (especially since i got them 20% or 40% off).

I've always had a bit of a problem with Quo brushes. Some brushes, I should add. I've found they shed too much. I've purchased a few only because of the price and availability. I was happy to find today on a trip to SDM that they have now added a line of Professional brushes. They appear to be a much better quality. They also are quite a bit more expensive. Luckily, today was one of their 40% off sales, and they included the pro brushes in this sale. I picked up 3 today. Haven't used them on product yet, but just by fooling around and inspecting them here at home so far, they seem top notch. Very comparable to my MAC and MUFE brushes.Love the black handles too. Looks much more high end than the gray ones. Nice going Shoppers!

I have the quo flat top kabuki, and i just have to say one thing....
I wanted this brush for some time now because my old kabuki was getting itchy and when i noticed that this brush was on sale for 40 percent off at shoppers drug mart/pharmaprix, i freaked out because it was originally 22 dollars, and was marked down to only 12.99! I was so excited and bought it right away! Anyways, I felt it, and it was amazing and soooooooo soft, like i felt it a bit and i was hooked! I washed it when I got home and let it dry for a bit, so far it's been amazing. One con is that it smells so bad.
like insanely bad.............
but for the price, it's AMAZING
ps... does anyone know if the quo bronzing brush is comparable to the 187?

I have several of these brushes. For the most part, these brushes are worth it. Prices are reasonable and very good esp when SDM has their 40% off sales on them. There are a few in the bunch that are just *bad* for eg. their fan brush - horrible horrible brush!!! (see my review on that). Overall though, the quality of these brushes may even be above average! I have experienced very little shedding with some of these brushes which is quite impressive. I have a mixture of MAC and Quo brushes. Of course you can't compare the quality of Quo to MAC...but there are some brushes that I would buy from Quo instead of spending a ridiculous amount for one MAC brush. What I really like about Quo brushes are the packaging they come in. It's a thick durable plastic bag! Esp the flat top kabuki (totally cute!). They come in very sturdy plastic ziploc packages and I never trash them. I always keep them for when I travel or any other time I might need it! 2 thumbs way up!

Quo brushes have real good quality. I bought 6 today, and am willing to buy the same products for my sister. I especially like their Kabuki brush, which is so soft and dense. I love them.

Just bought the last Kabuki brush on sale! I've been looking for a good Kabuki for my Smashbox Halo. I love the Ecotools and have all of them, but find them a bit too soft for the Halo. I actually like the little Kabuki that came with the Halo, but it is a bit hard. SO this one is very soft but still firm enough for my Halo! Yay! They hardly ever have this brush in stock and it was 40 per cent off!

I'll keep this short. There are 3 great Quo brushes and they are:
1) Kabuki brush - amazing!!!So Soft, and blends very well!
2) Bronzing brush - a dup. for the Mac 187
3) All over lid, great for lid, crease and highlighting.
Update - I also have the blush brush, it works well but the bristles fall out a lot.
The bronzing brush is too soft for applying foundation so I don't use it often.
But the concealer brush is AWESOME!!!!
