Are you obsessing over shimmery gold and silver eyeshadows for the holidays? I am too! This weekend I was at Sephora and Nordstrom trying to decide what I wanted. Then of course the shades I wanted were not in stock and I wasn’t about to order it online…. I wanted it right then and there. Then I stopped at Ulta and found Cargo’s Ulta exclusive City of Lights set. Check please!
I am loving the value with this set. Compared to the single eyeshadows I was about to pick up at Nordstrom, I got a lot more bang for my buck with this Cargo City of Lights set. Plus the eyeshadow and lipgloss quads are full sized. The cost of an individual Cargo quad is almost as much as this entire set.
Cost aside, I am loving the shades in this set as well. These are all very holiday party worthy shades. The Paris eyeshadow quad has gorgeous shimmering gold, silver, pewter and bronze eyeshadows… all well pigmented and pack a punch when applied wet. The Tijuana lipgloss quad has a nice range of shades; a sheer light pearly peach, a creamy dusty rose, a shimmering burgundy and a shimmering pink. Then there’s the silver… the Silver Boogie Nights eye pencil adds a little bit of sparkle to your eyes and the Face and Body Sparkle pen help take care of the rest.
Wouldn’t this set make a great gift? I took matters into my own hands and didn’t wait.
