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.

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

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.

Love this shadow!

I've used Cargo blush in the past, and I was very satisfied...the shadow didn't disappoint either! Great texture, staying power and vibrant pigment.

Nice silky powder but crumbles easily

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.

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.

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.

Nice shadow but got it last month

This was a nice shadow. Nice color and like the tin it comes in although the lid is a little difficult to take off. The tin for this brands blush is the same but it doesn't seem to stick like the eyeshadow. What happened Birchbox? My last 2 boxes have been disappointing and you sent me the same upgraded full size item 2 months in a row!
