Cargo Venice Enchantment Palette

The Cargo Venice Enchantment palette gives neutral lovers a fresh take on everyday shades.  Filled with "tapestry shades" as Cargo describes them, this palette packs a punch with a variety of stunning colors.  They can be played up for vibrancy or worn in more neutral combinations for versatile daytime looks.  I have nothing bad to say about any individual shade because these ALL apply and wear beautifully and are true to color!  Let's take a closer look.

At first glance, I gravitated toward Magic, Carnival, Rialto and Lido.  Magic makes a beautiful all over lid color and Carnival and Rialto are my favorite for warming up the crease and adding definition in the outer corner.  Lido is stunning on the lower lashline.  It's eye-catching but not too bright.  Canal and Gilded, the lightest shades on the left, are great for inner corner highlighting as well as adding brightness on the center of the lid.

The right side of the palette is a combination of everyday shades as well as some unique colors I've been loving such as Lagoon and Mask.  Mask, although not matte, looks beautiful as a transition shade and I love the look of Lagoon on the lower lashline to add a bit of interest.  For a neutral everyday brown, Gondola will be your go-to and Palazzo, the deepest shade, is great for transitioning to a night look or using as a liner.  Last but certainly not least is Murano.  This shade has a lot more red in it than most browns typically included in palettes, so I love this one for enhancing warmth.  This is not a shade I would personally wear on its own, because it does have a lot of red in it, but it's perfect alongside the other shades in this versatile palette.

Overall, a gorgeous palette that's not your typical "nude" palette, but will certainly appeal to both neutral lovers as well as those who want more warm, unique shades in their collection.  As with other Cargo palettes, you also get a dual ended brush as well as a black liner which are perfect for on-the-go and travel.  I also love the packaging design of this palette - sleek, simple and still the durable, user-friendly design I've come to love from Cargo.  Best of all, this palette is now on sale (at the time of this post) so hurry and grab it, you won't be sorry!
