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.

Very chalky and crumbly
Sampled

I'm a huge fan of cargo cosmetics so I was disappointed when after having received this eye shadow sample, not once, but twice, both times it was broken up and crumbly. This leads me to believe that it wasn't an issue in shipping but that the product is simply like that. I tried to get the color to build on my lid but with not much luck.

Not what I received
Sampled

I didn't receive the full palette as it states on the web-site. I received 3 shades and no black eye pencil. But, the colors are beautiful. Very silky feeling during and after application. Wish I would have received the full palette.

Gorgeous color
Sampled

I don't wear a lot of eye shadow, but this is a gorgeous, rich color. The packaging is a bit weird. The first one Birchbox sent me arrived crumbled, so they replaced it. I'd definitely recommend this brand if you like eyeshadow, but I think I'd prefer the palettes to the single shadows.

The idea was nice

I'm biased in that I'm not a big fan of many shimmery shades. It felt like more shimmer than color. I received a full size in a previous box and I can barely distinguish between the two despite being two different "colors."

Tough Customer
Sampled

It is hard for me to review eye shadows because even with primers, most don't last long. Normally it is a few hours and then crease city. I only got the one color, not the palette, but that is okay since it didn't stay just as most shadows do on my eyes.

Crumbles easily
Sampled

I received my first full size cargo eye shadow completely crumbled and useless, when i received my replacement intact I found the product easily breaks which makes application tricky.

Nice silky powder but crumbles easily
Sampled

Color palette is nice and the formula is nice on, but mine came completely crumbled so I was disappointed and unlikely to purchase over competitors.

received full size Yukon color in my last 2 birchbox

I didn't love the silvery Yukon color the first time I received it as a full size upgrade and I don't like it any more the second time around. The picture implies that you get the full pallet as a full size product upgrade but that's not the case. The full size color is a good size but getting the same boring color twice is not cool.

Not really full size, but pretty
Sampled

I got the beta fullsize version as well, but only got a small tin. While I really like it and use it, I don't really feel like one small tin is worth the $10 extra I paid. I'm gonna have to rethink the beta add-on, but I'll wait a month or two.

Well... It's eyeshadow

And it does what eyeshadow does. No more, no less. It's not great eyeshadow and therefore I wouldn't pay a lot for it. It's also not terrible eyeshadow. It's just... middle of the road.
