There’s no better time to experiment with fun beauty looks in every colour of the rainbow than in Pride Month. Quo Beauty has you covered with their first-ever Pride Collection, launched with a little help from the Queen of drag, Canada’s Drag Race winner Priyanka. The collection includes waterproof eyeliners, an eyeshadow palette and nail polishes that come in playful names like Strut, Inspire, Fierce and Celebrate to spark your confidence. Ten percent of all sales up to $20 000 will go toward supporting the LGBTQ2S+ community with a donation to Pflag Canada.
Priyanka’s loving the collection and looking forward to seeing what looks Canadians will come up with. “I love creating new looks, and celebrating Pride lends itself to getting creative,” says Priyanka. “The range of bold colours in this collection really spoke to me, and I can’t wait to see what Canadians will do with it.”

If you see the collection in the aisles of your local Shopper’s Drug Mart, you might notice that the colours are bolder than anything you’ve seen from the brand. “With over 50 products, the Quo Beauty™ Pride Collection is one of the most colourful and playful collections in our history,” says Kelly Jessop, Vice President, Category Management, Shoppers Drug Mart. “It’s about inclusivity, acceptance, and the celebration of self love with a line that sparks creativity and is easily accessible to our customers.”
If you’re wondering, the line is vegan, cruelty-free and PETA-certified with high-performance brushes made with 100 percent synthetic fibres. The collection is available in-store until supplies last, so you may want to scoop them up while you can. You can also find them online at Shoppersdrugmart.ca and Pharmaprix.ca.
