Mom, Reinvented: Beautiful Twists on Top Mother’s Day Gifts

Today’s gift guide is pretty straightforward – I’ve picked out some common Mother’s Day gifts and swapped ’em out for some creative ideas from Quo Cosmetics. Available at Shoppers Drug Mart locations across Canada, these affordable ideas are not only reinventions of common mom’s day presents, they’re also ways to help mom refresh her look!

Quo Rosetta Face Powder

Flowers are an old standby for Mother’s Day…but they’re also a little tired. Why not try something fresh like this pearlescent powder that’s embossed with flowers? Combining blush, bronzer, and highlighter in one, a simple swoosh will give mom an easy, healthy glow.

Quo Brush Set Mother's Day

So, truth be told, mom doesn’t really need another new bag in her wardrobe. What she could use is a new set of beauty brushes though! This limited edition set from Quo comes with six high quality, super soft synthetic brushes with custom handles – and a matching clutch to stash ’em while traveling or to wear out on the town.

Quo Deluxe Portfolio

If mom has an artistic streak, it’s certainly tempting to gift her (another) adult colouring book. But there’s more than one way to express her creativity! This multi-faceted palette has 18 eye shadows, 12 lipsticks colours, 3 blush duos, 1 setting veil, 1 soft focus powder, 1 eye primer, and 4 colour correctors to keep mom busy (and beautiful!)

Quo Creamy Lipstick Set

Who needs bling when you’ve got lipsticks housed in shiny silver cases? This Creamy Lipstick Set contains three nourishing lipsticks in a palette that works for every mom – from notice-me red to neutral berry.

Quo Beauty Box

Sure mom could use a phone case to protect her smartphone from shattering – but she probably already has one (or five). Give her another travel-friendly gift idea instead, like this Beauty Box. Perfect for stashing in your purse or luggage, this miniature palette contains a whole lot of wonderful: 20 eye shadows, 3 blushes, 6 lipstick colours, and even 2 applicators!
