        this is a good palette but I feel like it wasn't the right thing for me. I personally wish I didn't I barely use it maybe it's my personal coloring that makes me not like it. I don't know this one I wish I could get rid of.

        be sure these colors are ones you'd like to wear

          Comments about Cargo Online Only The Essentials Eyeshadow Palette:

          I've only had this a few days, but I've used all colors but Downtown (black) and I think I'm ready to give an review.

          The biggest complaint that I've seen about this palette is that the four lightest colors are too similar. Well, I disagree. For a lighter skinned person, these shadows have different uses (for reference, I'm yellow with strong olive undertones and BareMInerals Golden Fair foundation is a little too dark). Today, for a simple no-makeup look to open my eyes, I used Plaza (the darkest light color) in my crease and it looks great. It's barely detectable, but really opens up my eyes. I then threw urban on my eyelid and went out the door.

          Three other shadows that look similar are District, Rush Hour, and Metro. These shadows are the reason I bought this palette, and they can easily be used together or separately to create a green-enhancing eye look. With Downtown, Industry, Brownstone, and Facade, any daytime look can be easily made into a nighttime look.

          For a pale-olive woman, this palette will easily become a staple for my everyday looks as well as travel. Oh, and the packaging is gorgeous!

          These shadows last all day (over primer) and blend easily. The only con that I can think of is the natural bristle brush included (I only use synthetics).

            Comments about Cargo Online Only The Essentials Eyeshadow Palette:

            The textures and pigmentation of the colors are great. I love that this palette has neutrals, and I especially like that the bottom row has colors that would be useful for everyday.

            I just wish that the assortment of colors could have been selected differently, particularly for the top row. 4 of the 6 shades of the top row are very similar (they are light colors: beige, pink, white, and a light taupe). Don't get me wrong, they work as very good base/transition colors, but variation is key; especially when other competing brands are coming up with neutral palettes that showcase the medium and dark colors. I have medium skin (I'm Filipino, so I have some yellow tones and tan), so maybe the lighter shades appear optimally on lighter skin tones.

            Comments about Cargo Online Only The Essentials Eyeshadow Palette:

            I always forget about Cargo and their excellent quality. I am so glad I got this palette, every color is usable, blendable and goes with all the others. I have done several day looks and a smokey eye, getting compliments on both looks. I am going to purchase a backup that's how much I love it.

            Comments about Cargo Online Only The Essentials Eyeshadow Palette:

            This was a palette I was very on the fence about, because I have so many neutral palettes. Most of my neutral palettes are composed of brown and taupe shades... on top of that, a lot are overly shimmery. This palette is a "true" neutral palette (with a few cooler colors included). It only has 3 shimmers, so you can highlight if desired. It also has a true white shade, as well as a black shade, making this palette very basic. This will give you EASY day time looks, but also transfers to night (smokey eye) seamlessly. I LOVE that most of them are matte!

            I think this would be very good travel palette. It holds an eyeliner and brush. I can say that I enjoy Cargo's brushes. They are good, not amazing, but they are a nice edition. I have not even touched the eyeliner though, so I can't say anything about that.

            The only negative thing I would say about this palette: Is I wish there weren't 4 shades (whites and greys) that were close in color. However that is not a deal breaker for me. I will use 2 of the 4 white shades. Which is actually Uptown and Plaza.

            Overall, I would recommend this palette if you are in the hunt of a "true" basics palette, this will do the job. I always grab for this to get a toned-down eye when doing bold lips.

              I think Cargo is one of those underrated gems that I wish more people would give a shot. This palette has wonderful, basic, everyday colors with a variety of finishes, but they blend amazingly well. I easily wear my makeup on a daily basis 12-14 hours and this lasted all day and still looked nice when I got ready to remove it. Well worth the money and better than a lot of other "basics" palettes out there for more money.
