Cargo Summer in the City Eye Shadow Palette

This limited edition palette is inspired by the carefree—yet unwaveringly stylish—atmosphere of summers in New York. And much like your strappy nude sandals, it goes with everything in your closet. It’s packed with 12 long-lasting shadows ranging from soft nudes and pastels to bold copper and bronze shades. You can easily create a stunning eye look for any occasion—from fancy rooftop happy hour to laidback barbeque. The dual-ended shadow brush makes for easy application, and the black eye pencil is perfect for adding some sultry edge to your look.

Just got a single shadow

I'm not able to review the actual palette considering I just received a single shadow. The single was good though. I'm not sure i would run out and buy a full palette though. I have quite a bit of eyeshadow already so I just don't need more. It's weird though to advertise the full size product at a palette and then send a broken single shadow...

Arrived Broken

Product arrived broken, but it was easy to press the broken shadow back into place. As a single shadow, the size is actually pretty decent, but paying for a "full size" product and seeing the image of the full palette before I received the box makes it seem like it's not worth paying the extra $20 a month.

Cargo Summer in the City LIMITED!!!!

I was expecting to receive a full size palette, and was very disappointed when I noticed I was only receiving a small tin. I love the color and all, but for the $20 upgrade I expected more.

Pretty shade, but disappointed

This is a lovely shade. However, this was one of my full size products that I paid to upgrade my subscription. Pretty misleading to put the whole pallet up and then send me only one shade...

Great pigment and the colors nice but I was expecting a palette as one of my fill size products not a single eyeshadow. Bit it is pretty!

Full Sized Samples Not Quite So Full Sized.......

I wanted to try Birchbox plus because I love surprises and I definitely love trying higher quality makeup at a discount. I've been so incredibly happy with my regular Birchboxes that I decided to upgrade, but imagine my disappointment when I received 1 Cargo Eyeshadow sample where a full size palette was listed as the product that I would receive. I have some Cargo blush that I received in it's sample size, and this supposedly $34 dollar eyeshadow is almost exactly the same size. When you search Cargo's products, you do not see full size single "eye shadows" sold in individual containers, which made this otherwise good product suddenly leave a bad taste in my mouth. Very disappointed with it because I was looking forward to adding a new palette to my collection and trying out a multitude of different colors: not just one . :/

Beautiful pallette; and liner and brush too!
SampledPurchased

I think this is one of the best items I've bought myself so far. I have fair skin, in my 50's, and I love all of the colors. Maybe one purplish one that might not be the best for me, but the others are great. And I love that it came with a liner pencil and double-ended brush. The liner pencil goes on smoothly - no tugging at the delicate skin around my eyes. Very pleased with this purchase. I used a 20% off offer code too, so well worth it at that price.

Awful Palette

First I just want to say that I love Cargo Cosmetics. I have their blushes, bronzer, and a few other of their palettes so that combined with the wonderful reviews I've read and video reviews I've seen online, I had to get this one too! I own over 40 palettes from drugstore to high end and this compared to all of them is just awful. Do Not waste your money purchasing this one. The shadows are about as bad as you can get in a shadow. They are very powdery, lots of fallout, pigmentation on a scale of 1 - 10 is about a 4. They have almost no staying power even with a primer and they get very muddy when you blend them together. The pinks and nude color didn't even show up on my eyelid when I applied them, and yes I used a primer ;) I can swatch the colors on my forearm and they wear off within minutes. Zero staying power. The liner and brush are amazing though - typical great quality that i'm used to from Cargo. Like I wrote before, I have read and heard wonderful things about this product so I can't help but wonder if maybe I just got a bad one.

Long lasting

This product lasted all day, but i wish it was actually a palette like the description says, and not just a pot of one color. Its not the color I would have chosen.
