  1. The shadow colors are just okay. The packaging is nice.

    Cargo’s holiday palettes are great. I really love them and think the price is just right. I use their eyeshadows wet and they go on fantastic!

    If you don’t have your staples yet I think this will a must have for most people.

    I have last years holiday collection from cargo and I love it. This does look similar but I think ill get it anyway.

    I bought the Hands of Hope Palette last year-Didnt care for the shadows at all.Color payoff was not very good & they were all super frosty. =/ Very disappointed

      have you tried them wet? i know some shades have major fallout like the pink with glitter flecks but when i use them wet they really look fantastic.

    I purchased a palette from Cargo (last year) and I only used it once. I didnt use my money wisely :(

    It looks like a great way to try out their products. Cargo’s eyeshadows are $15 if purchased individually.

    Hmmm, this looks too similar to last years Mediterranean Nights palette. Do NOT get me wrong, I loooove my Mediterranean Nights palette, It’s sexy, I just would have preferred if this years CARGO palette looked different. I could do without the blue e/s. The matte shadows look nice but I can’t justify buying this just for those two. Also, the blush isn’t new It was in last years palette, so that’s disappointing.

    That looks really cheap and it looks like it does not have great pigmentation.

    I think this palette is really beautiful. The colors look delicious, and the print on the shadows is gorgeous! Also it’s really inexpensive considering the amount you get. i think i’ll swatch these shadows next time i go to sephora and if the pigmentation is good, i’m picking one up.

    Whenever they emboss something, I’m just a sucker for it!!!

  13. I am soooooo excited for this palette! Last year’s Hands of Hope palette was fabulous.

  14. Perri

    ooo I love that deep blue but the lighter colors don’t do it for me.

  15. Val

    Do you know where can I get Cargo cosmetics online? Thanks.

    I bought the Hands of Hope palette last year and it was a big disappointment. Returned it to Sephora before Christmas and put the money towards something else from my wish list.

  17. Is it just me? Or does this design remind you of Stila’s Holiday Palettes? O.o

    I have the hands of hope palette and i use it sparingly because I say its too pretty to mess up lol! This looks pretty .. too bad Sephora doesn’t carry Cargo anymore .. I guess Ill have to try Ulta.
