Cargo Havana Nights Palette & Swimmables Shadow Sticks

Cargo Havana Nights Eyeshadow Palette & Swimmables Longwear Shadow Sticks

Press Sample

 Let’s go on a journey. We’ll travel past the southern-most part of the United States to the complicated, yet beautiful island of Cuba. We’ll make our way to the capital city of Havana. Here, we’ll drive along the Malecon, the city’s ocean-front boulevard, in our 1950s convertible till we find ourselves at La Habana Vieja. As we marvel at the colorful, pastel buildings along this street, we’ll know why it inspired the Limited-Edition Cargo Havana Nights Palette, $34.

Cargo Havana Nights Palette

Cargo Havana Nights Limited Edition Shadow Palette Packaging

Cargo makes some incredible, cruelty-free products. I love their blushes and lip glosses.  Up until now, however, I have yet to try their eyeshadows. I don’t know what took me so long.

The Cargo Havana Nights Palette is truly stunning. Although I do have some issues with the packaging design – it’s a little bulky, the mirror could be larger, the brush easier to access, and the magnetic closure more secure – the shadows more than make up for these shortcomings.

The palette features twelve shadows arranged in 3 quads and 6 duos to provide easy day and night inspiration. But of course, you can mix and match them as you see fit.

I can’t get enough of the Cargo Havana Nights Palette. The colors are fun and well-suited for this time of year. I like that I can create a soft pinky look or punch up the color with a bright aqua blue. Plus, they perform amazingly well, even in the hot summer heat.

I put them to the ultimate test at an outdoor party and on an all-day road trip. They held their own, even when I felt myself melting in humid air. There was no creasing, transferring, fading or fallout. And bonus, the shadows also pair exceptionally well with the Cargo Swimmables Longwear Shadow Sticks.

As much as I adore the Cargo Havana Nights Palette, I’m swooning over the Swimmables Sticks. They help take my Havana Nights looks to the next level.

Available in eight shades, the Swimmables Longwear Eye Shadow Sticks, $20/each, feature a lightweight, crease-proof, water-resistant formula. They glide on with ease and last until I’m ready to take them off.

Cargo was kind enough to send me three shades to try (two of the sticks were in the same shade):

I like to pair Paradise Bay with Malecon from the Cargo Havana Nights Palette to really intensify the shimmer/aqua eye. And since I’ve been on an olive/army green kick for the past few months, I can’t get enough of Palm Bay. Not only do I want more Swimmables Longwear Shadow Sticks, but I know I will be using them long beyond summer.
