FOTD: Cargo Tahiti

I've been lusting for the Cargo eyeshadow palette in Tahiti for over a year now, but considering I'm not exactly obsessed with powder eyeshadows and had, prior to today, never used a Cargo eyeshadow, I kept passing. Then my local Sephora put Cargo products on 50% clearance to clear out the brand, and I was lucky enough to stop in shortly after they'd posted the sale. $17 for 4 huge shadows in a pretty palette? SOLD! I plan on doing a review of this palette and Vienna as soon as I've tested the latter out, but as a "teaser": pay attention to the application note at the bottom of my FOTD image. It's significant.

Another teaser--swatches! These were applied dry over TFSI.

Also, a quick note, since I think I forgot to mention it here on this blog: I always spritz my MAC Studio Tech foundation with Skindinavia setting spray before applying it. It makes it creamier, easier to apply, and slightly less matte.

  1. I've wanted to try the Clinique Airbrush concealer forever because Lisa Eldridge always raves about you like it?

    1. Love it, but it's not great for dry skin or people who want a lot of coverage.

  2. HOLEE CRAP. I love every single thing about this -- and fingers??? Why are you so damnably talented?
