If you caught this weekend's E! Weekend News broadcasts on E! Channel, then you saw how easy Quo Cooling Gel Shadow Pencils ($14 CAN) are to apply and how pretty the finish looked on our model Marina. It took makeup artist Aniko Farkas just a minute to stroke the shimmery gel shadow tip across Marina's lids and blend it out with a fingertip. A little waterproof mascara, and done. Youthful in its simplicity and, although not a new concept, fun because of the on-contact cooling sensation, especially in hot weather.
Available in seven pretty shades -- 9o° (a sepia tone), Snowdrift (pearlescent purple), Glacier (sand), Cool Breeze (pebble brown), Ice Cap (cappucino brown), Tundra (smokey grey) and Arctic Blue (grey blue) -- the gel shadow is water based, formulated with natural cucumber and chamomile, and crease resistant.
Yep, they're crayons for the grown-up girl.
Canadian brand Quo cosmetics is available at Shoppers Drug Mart.
