I’m so thrilled about a new eye palette – always. A limited edition? Even better. When it comes to beauty products, a great eye palette like this new release from Cargo Cosmetics is a must.
Why? It lasts forever and there are endless options (and no, I probably won’t be daring enough for the turquoise matte “manly” shade – you figured, right?). This limited-edition palette is simply gorgeous – it’s called the Land Down Under eye palette and it includes 12 long lasting, shades. Can I let you in on a secret? These are labeled as “summer”, but I really find most of them will look amazing into the fall, so there’s no need to toss it or not consider it for now. (I mean, I’m not one of those who only wears certain hues for certain seasons. As a working mom on the go, I use whatever colors in whatever palettes I can find on my counter!)
Bonus points, too, for the dual-ended brush and black eye liner that comes with it. At $34, that’s a pretty great price for all of those goodies. Don’t you think?
You should apply shadow to the lid, crease, brown bone and outer corner. And if you’re more daring than I am, you can mix and layer colors. I tend to generally use a light shade to cover my whole lid, and a pop of color on my lid. Take a leap with your colors (I’m listening to my own advice here!) because you never know which color you might really fall in love with. Like an Australian holiday, eh?
You can find this palette and Cargo Cosmetics at CargoCosmetics.com or Ulta.com.
