Hi girls, I realised that I haven't spoken about my eye make-up routine other than my favourite lash brands, so I wanted to let you know I have recently been using the Cargo Essentials Eye Shadow Palette*. I was kindly sent the palette to try and if you are looking for a natural, wearable palette you've come to the right place. I find it very rare when 99% of eyeshadow colours are used in a palette, especially when I always leave 60% of colours untouched. I have had an odd history with palettes in the past and I'll be honest - bright green or purple shades do not touch my eyelids. I have seen millions of tutorials where the shades look lovely but on me personally, I am very simple when it comes to my eyeshadow colours. I was amazed when I opened up this Cargo palette because the shades are so incredibly wearable and right up my street.
After doing my research on the kit, I was impressed to find out that the shades are actually inspired by urban architecture. The 12 shades really do have you covered, my most used shades are definitely Hub and Brownstone, they are perfect for creating a soft smokey eye. I am not too keen on using Industry but if you are looking for a deep blue shade, the pigmentation is fabulous and really easy to blend. Besides from 12 shades, the kit also includes a dual ended brush and a black kohl eye liner. I love that this kit includes an eyeliner, it is definitely a nice surprise and it fits perfectly in the palette. Have you tried any of the Cargo range before? I would love to know what you think of the shades! What colours do you usually use in a palette? ♥
