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.

The shade is really nice, but I thought I would receive the whole pallet, that's why I joined Birchbox plus. Oh well.

Didn't get what's pictured. Product broken.

the picture of this product is a compact with multiple colors. I received two tins of one color each, but they were both the same color - and one was shattered into a fine, crummy powder that spilled EVERYWHERE. The non-broken tin is still breaking up and messy to apply. If I'd ever spend $35 on eye shadow, I want it to not be a powdery mess that is a disaster in my purse. I did like the color (again - that I got two of) but it's hard to control the application on my makeup brush when there is color spilling everywhere in my bathroom.

Fall out

I received this shadow in a neutral brown shade. It was okay. Texture is nice, the shade seems common, and it did crease after several hours. The main complaint I had with this shadow is the amount of fall out I experienced.

bummer

I was so exited to see the pallete in my box description so this single eye shadow was a disappointment. The color was fine but I have many that are similar.

Reapply as needed

I found this shadow went on really nice, but it would wear out after half a day.

Ehh

Received this as part of the $20/2 full size products Birchbox add-on, and was expecting an actual palette as depicted in the photo of my monthly samples. Cargo regularly goes on sale (and I can choose what color I want), so I don't believe this item had much value. However, the eyeshadow color I got was a neutral/slightly rose gold which I'll use. The shadow has a fair amount of fall out and you definitely need to use a primer.

Full size sample

This was my second batch of full size products in my Birchbox. I was a little disappointed that this was advertised as a pallet of colors but when it came in the mail it was just one color. Sort of risky to send everyone the same color!

Love the texture

This was a really nice sample to receive in my BB. Creamy and shimmery. The color is nice, too. Not a huge fan of the tin packaging but still a nice shadow single.

Meh

I feel like I have so many semi shimmery semi brown semi grey eyeshadows. I think I would have liked this better if it was a more interesting color. I feel like the pigment is really light. It's nice, just maybe a little boring.

Product is okay

The color is very neutral. Which is fine. I guess I wonder why I was sent two samples in the same color? It goes on nice - but its staying power is disappointing. I felt like it left creases after a few hours.
