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.

looks good

Looked great on- felt lightweight, blended well, and matched my skin tone. Problems came the next day, when my skin started to feel oily and break out. Maybe not for those with sensitive skin.

Poor Quality
Purchased

The quality of this eyeshadow palette is really sub-par in my opinion. The shades themselves are beautiful, and the light shimmery shades are not the best, but are usable. The darker shades however have almost no pigmentation, and are difficult to blend. The price point would be good on this palette if the shadows were high quality, unfortunately I can't endorse this particular palette even though I really wanted to like it due to the color selection.

colors are long lasting and nicely neutral
Sampled

The colors go on smoothly and have a good combination of neutral, pretty shades. I didn't get the brush with the sample but it was pretty good at picking up just the right amount with a generic brush.

Crumbly Mess, awesome customer service!
Sampled

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.

LOVE THIS
Purchased

The colors in the pallet are awesome. I am normally more of a matte user, but these are not over the top. I love how pigmented they are!

Love
SampledPurchased

Completely fell head over heels in love with this beautiful palette. Its shadows are all beautiful. The pigmentation on each one are very great and all come with shimmer that give you that summer, or smoky glow. I have not stopped using it since i received it and will be purchasing more of their eye shadows from Cargo. Greatest gift to myself in a box that gave my heart a smile.

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.

Beautiful Neutral Color
Sampled

I received a beautiful natural color of this eyeshadow. I have only used Cargo lipgloss in the past and enjoyed that. This shadow is soft and feathery and gave lasting color payoff!

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.
