i bought this because i loved the colors. in the morning i dont have alot of time to get ready so when i bought this it was great its everything i need all in one cute pink box. there are sooo many color combos and if you are new to the whole make up thing is fool proof all the products are labeled 1 threw 3 you just pick what color and apply where its says. the eyeshadow is very pigmented and is so soft to use blends well and it is great for day time or night wear. if your looking for a pallet that gives you everything you need this is the one for you. i use this at least three times a week =)
I received this palette from Cargo as an advance PR sample. I am amazed by this palette. I have never tried Cargo Eyeshadows before but i was pleasantly surprised. This kit contains three cream shadow bases, five outer corner colors and five ‘pops’ of color, all in a pretty pink palette, perfect for spring. The colors go very well with each other and the combinations are endless. I've been pretty much stuck in a rut with my make up since i don't have much time in the morning to pick out different color and combos. But this kit totally does that for me.
There are three eyeshadow bases: Sheer Nude, Shimmering Shell and Soft Beige. They are pretty runny compared to a lot of other bases i've used before. They spread easily and you really don't need a lot. I put a bit more than i should once and it sort of balled up. The bases also alter the color and hue of the shadow a little bit so you can play around with that. These bases are not my bases of choice but they still do what they're suppose to do - make your eyeshadow stay put.
The vibrant shades are absolutely gorgeous. They're super pigmented and have great color payoff. They go on super smooth, even without the base. They do have a little bit of fall out but that doesn't bother me. The colors are fun. I think it's a great palette to invest in since you get a lot of product and you get to sample colors you usually don't get for a cheaper price. The "pop" colors are a little less pigmented but still works great.
My favourite part about it is that you can really mix and match the colors to create different looks. I also find that although the colors are a bit intimidating, you can still create some really neutral/office appropriate looks with it. The only thing that i would change with this palette is including a black eyeshadow. I use a darker/black eyeshadow to create dimensions almost always. Including a black eyeshadow will be great for toning down these shades or even creating a more dramatic look.
Overall, i love this product. I've been using it almost everyday since i received it. You also get a lot of product for the price, I won't be running out any time soon.
