This post is a long overdue review about one of the best eyeshadows palettes I own.
I cannot actually believe it I did not share before the love I have for this little jewel.
Let me introduce the Cargo "Vintage Escape" palette.
I first spotted it last year during the Vogue Fashion Night Out in Debenhams where I notice the Cargo stand.
I recommend you a visit if you can, because you will probably end up asking yourself why you did not buy from this brand before.
Some nice eyeshadows and contour palettes caught my attention but then I eyed this palette and it was love at first sight.
Due to the other 374757 nude palettes I own, I decided not to buy it on the night, applying my rule of " if you are still thinking about it after one week, go and buy it".
Nether less to say, I got it and yes, it was a wise purchase.
It has just got the "wow" factor (you can tell what do I watch every Saturday night don't you?).
Perfect selection of matte and shimmer shades, 12 pans, incredible colour pay off, long lasting effect and nice blendabilty make this palette so valuable.
The double ended brush is not bad at all, the angled side in particular is very accurate and precise.
I use it every other day, probably even more and it's what I use to do my fave smoky eyes look, that you can find here.
The black matte shade, "Black Crow" is one of the darkest and most opaque shadow I own, can be compared to Urban Decay's "Black out"; I quite often use it on the lower lash line on top of the black pencil ( I use normally Avon Super Shock Gel liner).
Hot Cocoa, Autumn and Chestnut are the perfect crease shades, my faveourite ones are Frolic, between a brown and a pewter colour, Rustic, a coppery brown and Crisp, very similar to Mac's Nylon.
Now I have got good news for you: I paid something like 35 quids for this but I spotted it on the Fragrance Direct website for £15 , super bargain and a good idea for a Christmas present if you wish and you can find it here.
I will talk to you very soon,
