OK so after using it for 1 day I say that this Quo primer performs similarly to the smashbox photofinish. The texture feels slightly more greasy than the smashbox one but still didnt make my face oily or anything. I am going out for dinner with Jamie now and I re-did my face and used the primer again. I think I will buy another bottle before I go home, to stock pile you know.

Is this the one you are refering to? What is Active C? You have to be careful which anthelious you purchase because some are greasier than others. I purchased the face and body one, not realizing it, and it turned out to be quite greasy as well. You must make sure you get one for the face only and the non-greasy formula. Despite the greasiness, I still use mine because nothing protects skin like mexoryl and I don't want wrinkles. lol
Vitamin C is an anti-aging gel-ish cream. I've been using it for years. It's expensive but lasts a long time (one tube last me a good 6 months at least).

So far I am pleased with the primer, but only a few hours have elapsed. I will have a better report in the end of the day.
The Quo primer costed CAN $ 20; compared to US$ 36 for the smashbox primer...
I'd say mine is normal, but it did used to be a little on the dry side til I found marcelle. Got any update on the primer yet LOL

Got any update on the primer yet LOL I'm actually loving it. It hold my MU like a charm. I can't see any difference between this primer and the smashbox primer, except for a little difference in the texture. I will buy 1 or 2 more bottles before I go back home since primer is something I use everyday anyways!
I dont have much from Quo but from the brands you mentioned some things I immediatly thought of..
Annabelle... their loose pigments, e/s trios, eyeliners called smoothliners are as good as UDs 24/7 pencils, and their eye kohl in the color HALO is the exact same as Benefit Highbrow but it cost me $5!
Marcelle... I havent tried much from this brand but their SINGLE eyeshadows are something awesome, the duos suck, but the singles still rock, Ive been using them for years and love them.
And actually Quo makes some of my favorite fake eyelashes

I'm sure one of us canucks could CP you Quo products.

Quo is featured on the Shoppers Drugmart web site, but not sold online anywhere.
So I went back to Shoppers today to get a backup of the primer and guess what, it was all gone!!!! I was pretty bummed. But then, I hear Jamie calling me and saying "Hunny is this what you arev looking for"? It turns out that they had a little side display with the primer and they had just a couple more for sale. Phew! I grabbed one.
Also got a Quo concealer and a few vichy and Biotherm products. Lovely!
