Cargo Limited Edition Emerald City Collection + a Giveaway!

Press Sample

You may remember my previous reviews of the Cargo Emerald City Eye Shadow Palette which, incidentally, will be on my best palettes of 2017 and the Cargo Emerald City Swimmables Eye Pencil Kit. The limited edition collection was inspired by the lush forests, unique architecture and cool coffee culture of Seattle, a city close to my heart. Today I have more of the collection for you!

First up the Cargo Emerald City 6-Piece Travel Gel Lip Kit ($25). This kit contains all 6 of their best-selling gel colors in one travel-friendly sized set. These lightweight gel lipsticks glide on the lips and have a mega-moisturizing formula for a perfectly hydrated pout. I love the shiny finish and how comfortable they are to wear. I also love lipstick sets because I get to try lots of shades at a great price, regular price for the full size is $20 which makes this kit a terrific deal!

Shades include:

  • Barbados- pretty coral
  • Manhattan- nude
  • Bora Bora- warm pink
  • Venice- brown berry
  • Sicily- red
  • Jamaica- deep wine

I usually don’t like deeper lipstick shades on myself, but I am surprised and delighted that I can wear them all!

Emerald City Blockbuster Palette ($39) – this collection of 44 eye shadows features matte and shimmer finishes in a wide range of neutrals, pops of colors and smoky shades. As with the Emerald City Eye Shadow Palette, the colors are rich with great color payoff and they are long-lasting. The texture is great and they are easily blended. For those that need inspiration, the palette comes with a step-by-step guide.

The packaging is nice, an emerald green background with gold ornaments. The top of the palette is padded and quite sturdy. There is a big full-size mirror but no brush. Cargo is such an underrated brand, this is a great palette at a great price. Don’t open your wallet just yet…because I’m giving the Cargo Emerald City Blockbuster Palette away!
