First Impressions ~ Cargo Cosmetics Shanghai Nights Eye Palette

Hi Makeup Maniacs!  Not sure if you've noticed that I'm not posting as often as I used to. Well, between family, work, and my YouTube channel, I've been having a difficult time keeping up with the blog.  Although I love completing YouTube vids, my true passion is writing, so I definitely miss posting as often as I used to.

Anywhoo, I wanted to show you something I recently hauled.  (For a video about a Crazy Collective Haul <----------- click that link)  

This is Cargo Cosmetics Shanghai Nights Eye Palette and it's pretty darn badass!  The 12 eyeshadows are just beautiful.  From neutral to cool tones, this palette has everything you need to create some wonderful looks.  

Eyeshadows Swatched without Primer
From Left to Right - Top:  Wai Tai, Skyline, Bund, Lychee, Jin Mao, and Neon
Bottom:  Hu, Street Style, Ginger, Jade, Bar Rouge, and Night Life

I've really enjoyed playing with this palette.  I bought it at Kohls for $39 and I think that is a pretty good price.

Here is a look I created with the colors Neon, Bar Rouge, and Bund (black liner was by Marc Jacobs):

I had tried two of Cargo's face palettes before, but never any of their eyeshadows, so I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into with this purchase.  The formula of these eyeshadows is a little more powdery than I prefer, but overall, I was impressed by the quality.  I do not regret my purchase!

So, on my 5 star scale, with 5 being the best and 1 being the worst, I rate this palette 4 stars!  I took away a star because I felt these shadows could be less powdery and more pigmented.  Otherwise, this palette would get a perfect score.  

I hope you enjoyed my little review of this palette.  Please check out my YouTube channel, Mel's Makeup Mayhem!  It's FREE!!
