My HG foundation. I'm shade number 4 and it matches me perfectly. It's yellow based which is perfect for my skin tone. It gives me a dewy glow and stays on all day. It can transfer but only if you touch for face. I've already bought a second bottle as it was on sale at Shoppers. Because Quo is an exclusive brand with Shoppers you can't find it anywhere else. It is expensive for a drug store brand, 27.00 for one bottle. Sometimes it will be on sale for 14.00. I love the packaging it has a pump! I also love that the bottle is see through so you can see when you're running low. Definitely recommend this product and will repurchase

The only con is the price.
After a skin snafu after over aggressive retinol treatment I had dry rough skin. Every foundation accentuated that, except this one. As previous reviewers said, it's yellow based, and moisturizing.

It saved my skin, looks dewey, doesn't break me out, and I recommended it to a friend with genetically very dry skin, and she is a convert as well. In the summer it's a bit too moisturizing for me now, but I will never forget how it saved my skin.

For what it's worth, July 1st it's on for extra points and and bout 14$ from the 27$ as they may be changing the packaging. I'm buying a backup!

Love that this line of foundation is completely Yellow based. I brought both the 001 and 002 and mix the two together to get the perfect shade. Was on sale at a discount so getting two for the price of one was great! However, at full price of ~$30 for a drugstore brand would be abit much imo.

Finish: the finish is great however if you have dry skin like me, you should definitely mix with some moisturizer as it does cling to dry patches. I don't even powder afterwards as its pretty matte.

Application is easy. i just used my finger tips and it applies easily.

Coverage: medium coverage for sure.

Summary: I think i would use this in the winter with some added moisturizer and by itself in the summer as i think the consistency is light enough for my dry skin. If you can get it at a discount and you have yellow undertone, this is a no brainer.

This is a nice foundation, especially at a discount price. All shades are yellow-based.
Pros: moisturising, has vitamins E and A. Lightweight. Didn't break me out so far. The packaging is practical and chic.
Cons: may clog and emphasize pores.

This is a new foundation to Quo's re-vamped cosmetics line-up. It is available in 6 shades, but the shades do not have a name, just labelled 001 (lightest) all the way up to 006. As far as I know, these will be the only shades available and they have neutral to yellow undertones. The shades range from a fair to a medium golden. There are none that would match anyone with a darker skintone or very fair skintone.

I really don't know how to rate this...there are no advertisements or statements made about the formula, except a little blurb I read on a beauty blog claiming that this foundation is for "flawless coverage that stays in place all day long. Paraben and fragrance free and is suitable for most skin types."

I have combo-oily skin and this foundation was fantastic on my skin. It is very creamy, and almost feels like a moisturizer upon application. It blends easily and dries to a matte finish. The upside is that it takes some time to dry, thus giving you extra time to blend/apply. The downside is that since it does take a few mintues for it to dry, it feels tacky to the touch and makes application of other products, like eyeshadow to the lids a bit of a nightmare. Any fallout, and it will stick to your freshly applied foundation. Applying powder prior to allowing the foundation to fully dry will give you a cakey mess.

The coverage is medium, and is buildable---but only if you let it fully dry and then go back and apply a second layer. Setting with powder is not necessary, as I've gone without and it still stayed in place all day long, but with a slight sheen on my t-zone after 5 hours. I would recommend a powder if you plan on using other powder products on top (blush, highlighter etc), but if you prefer not to, just be sure that it is completely dry first before applying any powder, as it will get cakey.

The packaging is quite impressive for a drugstore foundation. It is in a sleek cylindrical plastic tube, with a twist cap, that unlocks a pump. As you twist the cap, the pump rises up from within the cap. I do like that the plastic bottle and locking cap makes for easier travel, but it still a bit bulky.

The con is the price. It is $27 CDN and that is hefty for a drugstore foundation if you ask me. I would recommend waiting for a sale, as Quo cosmetics go on sale frequently, and sometimes up to 40% as well bonus SDM points (10X, 15X, 30X etc).
