Cargo Runway Palette

Cargo, Runway, paletteThere was something else that caught my eye on my last trip to Sephora: a new palette from Cargo. The Runway Palette ($49) is a Sephora exclusive. You remember my love for Cargo’s Essential Eye Palettes (still love them) — Runway contains an exclusive new edition in shades of grey. You’ll also get 6 additional unnamed eyeshadows, three blushes (The Big Easy, Rome, and Topeka), and two identical pans of Cargo’s bronzer in Medium.

I found the palette academically interesting. It’s an amazing value if the eyeshadow colors appeal to you (and I think the blush choices are one-size-fits-most). All the powders have a magnificent texture, though the new essential quad is too cool and steely for my tastes. The blue shadow also reminded me somewhat recent Starflash release Strike a Pose. But the palette is quite large, which seems onerous for travel or storage (do you lay it flat on your vanity? Store it upright on a bookshelf?).

Anyway, I think this won’t be the palette for everybody, but it will be an excellent purchase for some.

    >I've been eyeing this palette for awhile (it was online before hitting the stores.) At a quick glance, some of the eyeshadows look like the colors from theBalm's Shady Lady palette. I'm still debating on this but it's very pretty.
