CARGO Essentials Palette ~ Review + Swatches

I have new gorgeous palette to share with you. It is "Essentials" Palette by CARGO Cosmetics. I Have never tried anything form CARGO, wonder why I always walked past by their counter at Khol's. I actually stopped there one time, but I couldn't decide what I wanted so I just simply left.  Bad move Monica.

CARGO need more HYPE people! Their makeup line is seriously good! Definitely I will be getting more form their line. I saw three more palettes that I really really want ~ Venice, Shanghai, Northern Lights. But well knowing my luck they are not available any more ;( I swear I want to cry!~
Anyways let me show you the palette that is available for purchase on Cargo website other retailers carrying CARGO line.
Essentials Palette was launched in 2015 in Spring / Summer Collection. It is inspired by my beautiful city ~ New York City. It comes in very sturdy cardboard packaging with magnetic closure. On the lid you can see gorgeous skyline of  city that never sleeps~ NYC. It actually looks like a Spring on the cover tho. The trees and they way it is presented.
Inside, once you open you are welcomed by 12 beautiful neutral shadows, double ended brush and eye pencil.

You can see variety of finishes: mattes and shimmers. They are your prefect every day shades. You can also create a nighttime look as well ;).

first row we have:
* Uptown ~ Ivory with shimmers . Can work great as your inner and brown bone highlight.
* District ~  rose (shimmer).
* City Hall ~  Nude beige (matte) very sheer.
* Urban ~ very very light grey with beige undertones (matte)
* Rush Hour ~ brown, almost orangy nude. (matte)
* Plaza ~ very similar to Urban. Plaza is darker (matte)

Second row;
* Downtown ~ black (matte)
* Industry ~ grey (shimmer)
* Metro ~ light copper brown (shimmer)
* Brownstone ~ chocolate brown (satin)
* Hub ~ taupe-brown (shimmer)
* Facade ~ black with blue undertones (matte)

The quality of shadows is good. I find myself more reaching for satin, shimmery shades then mattes. My favorites will be : District, Rush Hour, Metro, Brownstone and Hub.
Over primer they wear long time, don't crease. I don't get much fallout either.
They do blend nicely and over all this palette is great!
I think if you are a  New Yorker or love NYC get this palette ;) I love NYC, I been living her for past 8 years and I enjoy every second of it ;)

palette  available at Cargo Website and Ulta.
Price: $34

  2. Widziałam te palety Cargo na stronie sklepu House of Beauty za jakieś 180 zł ;)

  3. Cargo has only recently become available in Australia, so we haven't tried anyting from the brand yet! Their shadows look amazing though and we've heard great reviews. This palette looks like the perfect staple palette to have in your collection. We may have to put this on our llist of things to try!
