product test drive....Cargo Eye Shimmer Collection
i have a weakness for tiny bottles and sparkly eyeshadow. this was a no-brainer, because it's both.
Cargo's Eye Shimmer Collection is six pretty shades (sparkling white, champagne rose, vibrant tangerine, shimmering lilac, aquamarine blue, and coppered green )that are versatile and portable. i purchased the set for "coppered green", which is a fabulous iridescent shade that makes me look like a modern day mermaid.
they are sheer, but they are very pretty worn alone. because i like to cocktail my products, they also wear really well on top of other shadows. they also make excellent browbone highlighters.
the tiny bottles have a sponge applicator wand inside.
like other sparkly shadows, you will get fallout (when the shadow/glitter gets under your eyes and on your cheeks). however, the shimmer is so fine that it's pretty enough to leave. it adds to the glow. the way this is packaged, i usually end up with the shimmer on my eyes and cheeks and fingers (just from taking the wand out of the bottle).
there is also a liquid shadow set available with 6 shades. the applicator and bottles are the same. i just preferred the colors and shimmer in this set.
the set is $25 at sephora...highly recommended for a shimmery new spring look or to vamp up some of your older shadows!
