Products:
Quo Beauty Liquid Foundation n N1 Porcelain some out very liquidy from the bottle but make for an easy spreadability and dries down to a satin-matte finish and is self-setting with no to little transfer when something like your phone touches your skin. Despite having dry skin it manages to balance the dry matte texture while not sucking the life out of the look of the nation of any dry spots on my skin. It even plays nicely over an acne dry spot I had. 

The Miracle Cover Concealer in N1 Porcelain is a satin finish concealer with a creamy texture. This one is also self-setting formula which is ideal when your layering product or in my case to wear on its own to brighten my dark under-eye area. it also feathers out beautifully into my skin making it a much more ideal concealer formula for me. Also because it self setting it does not migrate into my eye under eye lines throughout the day.

Lipstick in Buttered Up is a satin cream texture lipstick formula with a smooth texture on the lips.

Colour:
Quo Beauty Liquid Foundation is a warm fair nude with a satin-matte finish. Too dark for me.
Quo Beauty Miracle Cover Concealer in N1 Porcelain is a with a satin-matte finish. Also too dark for me but closer than that foundation.
Quo Beauty Lipstick in Buttered Up is a pink rose with a satin/cream finish.

Wear:
The Quo Beauty Liquid Foundation is a self-setting foundation that I can get 16 wear without powder on my dry skin but 12 hours without anything I do see it starting to break down slightly. with a primer and powder, it looks flawless even working in the summer heat. ;P

The Quo Beauty Miracle Cover Concealer has very similar properties to the foundation and keeps its lasting power and not migrate up on the skin to 8 hours without setting with my fine under eye lines. That pretty good for me!

The Quo Beauty Lipstick in Buttered Up lasts up to 6 hours without eating.

Packaging:
Although I do think the rebranding of Quo Beauty was done to attract teens and younger adults. I actually think their core products were designed with simplicity in mind that I found reminisce with Korean Beauty brands as well as the funner packing as well.

The Quo Beauty Liquid Foundation is a basic satin texture squeeze bottle with a nozzle. I love it because it's simple and foundational.

Both foundation and concealer need a stronger makeup remover of makeup balm to break down.

The Quo Beauty Miracle Cover Concealer is a basic doe-foot applicator with a squeeze tube packaging to get all of the product out.

Quo Beauty Lipstick in Buttered Up VS PAT McGRATH LABS Mini MatteTrance™ Lipstick in Fever Dream.
Quo Beauty Lipstick is tiny and for the amount of product you get in a tube at 1.6 g of product for $10CAN compared to the PAT McGRATH LABS Mini MatteTrance™ Lipstick Trio at  0.042 oz/ 1.24 mL for $11CAN. I think these are WAY overpriced for a drugstore line considering the size compared to a prestige labelling. Now, these are customer colour packing for the lipstick but even compared to other drugstore brand bullet lipstick these are still WAY overpriced for the amount of product you get.
Sure I like this shade and will use it but it's the one product out of this rebranding that although the line can be slightly overpriced, this close to 5X the price compare to the amount you get from other drugstore lipsticks.

Angry dried out a pimple on my jaw from wearing a mask for 9 hour days. it actually doesn't look too bad considering how dry the skin was and RED under the foundation. Yes, I'm way to pale for this shade!

Daylight & Flash swatch: Quo Beauty Miracle Cover Concealer in N1 Porcelain VS Urban Decay  Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in Fair.
Quo Beauty Miracle Cover Concealer in N1 Porcelain is a softer matte on the skin compared to the Urban Decay  Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer in Fair. N1 Porcelain is a shade darker on my skin as it dries down after an hour compare to the Urband Decay Fair. This UD Fair concealer is my daily concealer to wear without makeup and honestly the Quo Beauty better formula for my fine undereye lines but it just too dark to wear on its own for me.

Mixed to Match:
Quo Beauty Liquid Foundation in N1 Porcelain mixed with Illumasqua Skin Base in white.

Flash swatch: Quo Beauty Liquid Foundation in N1 Porcelain mixed with Illumasqua Skin Base in white.
Quo Beauty Liquid Foundation in N1 Porcelain was mixed in a 1:1 ratio of with Illumasqua Skin Base in white to make a foundation mat for me. Normally I do this with brand s I like but that's A LOT of white foundation to add to a self-setting formula as the Illumasqua Skin Base creates a more creamy formula that needs to bet set with a powder. sure this is a workaround but I'd rather no have to change the formula I like to have to wear this one.
   
Verdict & Warnings:
The Quo Beauty Liquid Foundation & Miracle Cover Concealer are STELLAR products. Most high-end brands wish their products worked this well. These ones are formulated in Korea and it both covers but doesn't migrate ad it sets on its own while not being actually dry on the skin. LOVE THESE FORMULAS. BUT shade range for both are abysmal, there are only 10 shades for both products. N1 is the light shade but it falls into the light skin tone range rather than fair. There are also only 2 deeper skin tones and I would not call them deep either. That said their displays have double the amount of spots needed to fill these 10 shades, that I hope they are going to fill them up with more shades.

That said if the concealer which is light then the N1 foundation but is still too dark once fully dried down on my skin it would have been a daily concealer for me to my under eyes because it doesn't need setting and doesn't migrate through the day.

I suspect both the Foundation and concealer is made by the same lab in Korea. ;)

The Quo Beauty Lipstick is a major red flag for me. The product is good but the amount of product for the price at the drugstore level is WAY too expensive. You pat $11CAN for 1 mini lipstick from Pat McGrath Labs. Yes, its cute and small size is purse-friendly but it would say it's worth $5 for the amount of product and the custom colour packing and that I feel is generous.
