Urban Decay did it again!!!!! on March 18, 2014, this BEAUTIFUL palette was released! If you love make up & have an open mind to color, you will LOVE this palette. Let’s talk about packaging – it’s sturdy. It has a magnetic closure, which keeps the palette nice and shut. It comes with a double ended brush & a little sampler of their 4 eyeshadow primers.

There are 10 colors in this palette. Each  of them are highly pigmented. The colors are so bright and you can create many different looks with this palette. I just wish they would have put in a different color instead of the silver. A yellow would be nice or even a neon orange, but something that was BRIGHT and not blehh. Now, there is something I NEED to put out there. Urban Decay makes sure to tell you that FOUR of these colors are NOT safe for the eyes. The colors are Slowburn, Savage, Jilted, & Urban. Not sure why, but I believe it’s because they were not FDA approved yet, BUT that didn’t stop me LOL. For people out there that want to try out this palette, use it at your own discretion. I personally did not have any issues with those colors in specific, BUT I did find that they stained the eyes when removing makeup. OVERALL, I love this palette, fall out was not bad, and color pay off is amazing!

Cargo – Let’s go to Tahiti ;]

Soooo …. Back in my sephora days we once carried CARGO in our store. I’m not going to lie, but I was not that impressed with some of their stuff. Their foundations were awesome but everything else was pretty much .. Meh! The ONE thing that caught my eye was this palette though! There are a few things that you guys will learn about me, & that is the following: I LOVE blue & I am OBSESSED with eyeshadow. When I saw this palette I had to have it. These colors are stunning. The pigmentation is phenomenal and when applied it is true to it’s color. Sadly, you can’t find cargo everywhere, but would I purchase this palette again if I hit pan?! HECK YEAH I would! I honestly, would recommend this palette to anyone, whether it is for your kit or for yourself. These colors look amazing on every skin tone! Bottom line: if you can get your hands on this palette – DO iT!!
