Cargo Cosmetics Emerald City Swimmables Eye Pencil Set!

Cargo Cosmetics has released their new limited edition Fall/Holiday 2017 Collection called Emerald City, featuring the city and culture of Seattle. In addition to the Emerald City Eyeshadow Palette (review tomorrow), the collection also includes the Emerald City Swimmable Eye Pencil Set. This 4-pc. set is inspired by the forests and beaches of Seattle and the surrounding area.

Cargo’s Swimmable Eye Pencils are among the best on the market for being smudge-proof and water resistant. They boast an ultra-creamy formula that glides on effortlessly for precise lining. They are highly pigmented and stay put through sun, sweat, swim and tears!

Truth be told, it’s been a hot minute (actually more like years) since I’ve purchased an eyeliner. This may have something to do with it.

However, when I saw this Emerald City set, the colors and the fabulous price of only $25 for FOUR FULL -SIZED EYE PENCILS got me. I picked up the set immediately.

The set includes:

  • Black Sea – a deep matte black
  • Pebble Beach -a rich matte brown
  • Shelly Beach – a stunning shimmery deep green
  • Dorado Beach – a shimmery gold

Shelly Beach is the standout for me.  It’s a shimmery deep teal green, next would be Dorado Beach, a pretty, shimmery gold. It’s always nice to have a dark brown eye pencil–it is softer than a harsh black on older eyes. Black Sea is your typical matte black. I wish brands would stop putting a black liner in EVERY set. Let’s face it, most of us have plenty of black liners, I myself had 5,492 at last count.

Those of you with older eyes, remember if you shy away from brighter eyeshadows, a colored eyeliner is a great and inexpensive way to jazz up your look. Just make sure you choose a smudge-proof brand like Cargo.

Bottom Line: I have LOTS of eyeliners, but I’m still glad I picked up this set. I will use all the colors. Even though I may have duplicates, the Cargo Eye Pencils stay on and don’t smudge so I will use them more. This set will also make a great gift for a fabulous price!

    Cargo is a new cosmetic brand? Good to know. I’m always looking for good cosmetics

  13. I have not heard about this brand. Maybe because I am not a frequent user of make up. The colors look really vibrant though. I will ask my daughter, maybe she has a few of these items already.
