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.

Crumbly Mess, awesome customer service!

When I opened up my tiny Cargo tin, it exploded in my face like a tiny glitterbomb. In the product's defense, my chest and floor were covered in what was really a lovely color of eyeshadow.

not a fan

I'm honestly not sure if I would like this or not. The packaging is awful. You can't open it without spilling it all over the place & it's not easy to get off things once it's on them. The color I got is very dark for me so I just don't like this at all.

I'm over this eyeshadow
Sampled

I received a sample of Yukon two months in a row. The first month, it was broken. Replacement was broken. Finally got a second replacement. Then got the exact same thing in my June box. I really don't understand how a single shadow from a palette constitutes a "full-sized" product; it's not available on its own and I don't know what the value of this item is. Just lots of drama and poor packaging on that front.
As for the product, I really wanted to like it but it went on almost muddy looking and I experienced a decent amount of fallout from the glitter. This eyeshadow has just been a lot of hoopla over an underperforming and unexciting product.

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.

Beyond disappointed
Sampled

This is my third month doing the 2 full size product upgrade. Last month I received a Cargo eyeshadow single in Yukon that was marketed as this Summer in the City Eye Shadow palette. The eye shadow single is no where near the value of the complete palette, so I don't get how Birchbox can get away with saying this is my full sized product.

And then, I saw I was getting the palette again, and hoped that Birchbox had realized their error and finally sent me the palette as one of my full-size products. Nope. I got another Cargo eye shadow single. In Yukon. Again. I feel beyond cheated.

Oh, and both times were a powdering eye shadow disaster in my box.

Time to cancel my subscription.

A small Tin of broken eyeshadow..
Sampled

I really wished I received the pallet. Especially paying for the upgrade. I received a cool shade of purple but it was broken up into dust. I tried fixing it but just broke again when I opened it at a later time. Still haven't had the time to apply the powder but I do like the deep purple.

Good product but disappointed

I cannot accurately review the colors I was given a color that doesn't belong to this palette as a "full size item" although I do think that the texture was good and it went on well I definitely would buy costal scents over this!

So what had happened...

I opened this in the car and seriously it went every where it wasn't packaged like shown it was in a tin and I wasn't sure what is was until it spilled all over my car and lap. The packaging was the pits...

Bummed

I think that I would love this product if it had come in one piece. It was cracked and fell right out of the cute little tin. :(

Broken . . .

Always a bummer when you open a brand new, full-size eye-shadow and it flies everywhere. Because it is broken. And crumbled. Not the best experience. That being said, it looked lovely. On my hands. I love Cargo blushes and lip stuffs. I think, though, my love will have to contain itself to these parameters. Because this just became a weird clean-up project!
