When it comes to bold beauty looks, it’s hard to get more gorgeous than those of the winner of Canada’s Drag Race season two, Icecis Couture. This month, the drag performer has partnered with Quo Beauty to bring colour and confidence to our beauty bags via a limited-edition Quo Beauty Pride Collection — just in time to celebrate Pride Month.
“Pride can be a time to be creative and think outside the makeup bag,” says Icesis. “It’s a time to experiment with graphic looks using liquid liners, get bolder with a lip colour and be dramatic with lashes. It’s a time for self-love and self-expression, and to feel supported when you edge yourself out of your comfort zone.”

The collection, which features 60 new beauty products and accessories, follows the lead of last year’s inaugural Quo Beauty Pride Collection — Shoppers Drug Mart will contribute 10 per cent of sales of the Quo Beauty Pride Collection, up to $20,000, to Pflag Canada to help support the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. The company will make an additional $20,000 corporate donation to further support Pflag Canada, Toronto Pflag and The 519.
The Pride Collection features an array of colourful waterproof eyeliners, eyeshadows, lashes, brow stickers and nail polish. Playful accessories in the collection include a rainbow brush set, bucket hat, sunglasses and more.
The colour cosmetics line is vegan, cruelty-free and PETA-certified, with a focus on minimal packaging, and the makeup brushes are cruelty-free and made with 100 per cent synthetic fibres.
The collection is available now in stores and online, while supplies last.
