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.
