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.

Love this palette!

These are wonderful summer colors and so beautiful. The eyeliner and dual ended brush are an added bonus. Great value for all the beautiful shadows you receive!

Pretty color
Sampled

I received the full size Yukon. Pretty color, subtle all over shade. Not sure how well it blends... will need to work with it some more.

Single Shadow
Sampled

I only received a single shadow in my box so I can't give my opinion on the whole palette, but I do really like the one shadow that I got. I will most likely be purchasing this palette in the future!

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

Totally fun colors
Sampled

Love this! It's a great sample -- just wish there were more of it! Not that it's not a generous amount -- I want this to last and last -- it's really cute and makes awesome sense to have everything you need in one compact. The colors are perfect and long lasting too (I usually use a primer).

Love this eyeshadow
Sampled

This is the perfect eyeshadow--you can put on a single layer for work or for an informal day gathering and it adds a subtle hint of color and then you can layer it on at night to make it look more dramatic. Beautiful.

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.

Dreamy Formulation

Like others, I was confused when I opened my May box and saw the single pan of color (Yukon). The previews were misleading; however, not all is bad. I love, love the consistency of this shadow. It reminds me a lot of Stilla's shadow in kitten, my all time favorite eyeshadow not only due to the color but the creamy-like powder texture. Nothing else comes close within this price-range in my opinion. Yukon is a shimmery (not quite sparkle or metallic) plum/mauve medium grey; which complements my complexion (BB foundation stick in Golden Honey) and near black eyes. I applied to sunscreen coasted lids sans primer, so there was some creasing, but it was easily remedied by gently smoothing my finger over my lids. It reminded me of RMS's eyeshadows in that way. I'm sure performance would have been better with a primer, but I found that with my oily lids the shadow melted into my skin providing a luminescence that I enjoyed. Although I think Yukon is a gorgeous color, it is on the cooler side of the spectrum and with summer arriving soon, I would have preferred a bronze or golden shade.
