Cargo Los Angeles

For some reason I never really jumped onto the Cargo Color Palette eyeshadows until very recently. I have had Tahiti for a couple years now and absolutely love it, but I somehow overlooked the rest of them.

Well now I have a few more including Los Angeles and I am kind of kicking myself for not getting them long ago.

Color Palettes are a palette of 4 eyeshadow colors that come in a very sturdy and thick plastic compact with a large mirror. They were created to either be used as they are or as a compliment to their Essential Palette, which is a palette of four neutral eyeshadows.

There are ten of these palettes (Baja, Barcelona, Bermuda, London, Los Angeles, Paris, Shanghai, Tahiti, Toronto and Vienna) and they all include 4 different colors.

Talk about getting into a cool collection…I fear like the Kat Von D palettes, I am going to want to see all of these stacked up nicely in my drawer 😀

The palettes don’t come with names for the eyeshadows, instead they are all assigned a letter from A-D going in reading order, left to right.

A is a pale shimmery blue/green color
B is a medium royal purple shimmer
C is a medium shimmery aqua blue
D is a bone color with a little yellow shimmer

All of these shadows feel really soft and nice applied, they blend very easily. They have a pretty good level of pigmentation in them as well.

I love this combo of colors, it seems totally perfect for wearing in the summertime especially. I can definitely see myself jetting off to Fiji with this compact in my makeup bag, sigh.

A girl can dream. 😉

Availability: Cargo’s website or Ulta (limited selection at Ulta though)

Pricing: $28.00

Have you tried any of these palettes? Which are your favs?
