Up until now, I had only ever tried Cargo lipsticks, which, while the formula is absolutely perfect, I just don’t tend to reach for them as often as some other brands, which is a shame really because they’re very underrated in the makeup world. The Cargo Around the World palette however, I reach for a lot more often than I could have even imagined I would.
The cardboard packaging seems to be pretty common nowadays, I’m not a massive fan as sometimes it can feel a little cheap, but I’m the kind of girl that’s all about what’s on the inside, right? In this case that’s just too true, the shades are a mixture of warm and cool toned creamy-beige neutrals with just a few greys thrown in for good measure, if you’re looking for something that can create a variety of natural or subtle looks then this palette will take you a very long way!
The shadows formula is beautifully creamy and smooth, I genuinely believed that these were more of a cream based formula than powder in the beginning! There is a slight amount of fall out from certain cheaper brush brands but stick with some Real Techniques, MAC, BDellium Tools etc, and I can almost guarantee that it’ll hold the way you expect it to.
The palette itself cost me a grand total of £8.99 in my local(ish) TK Maxx but is easily found online for around £15 if you have no luck in your local store, which is an absolute steal for the quality you’re getting. (The palette does seem to have been discontinued on the Cargo website hence no link straight to the point.)
