Cargo Eyeshadow in “Yukon”

When Lawtons Drugs began carrying Cargo Cosmetics, I tried several of their products. But as I mentioned in my previous post, their eyeshadow single in “Yukon” immediately sold out. I have been back a few times with no luck, but finally was able to get my paws on this popular shade. A favourite of Youtubers like Kristen Gehm and GlamLifeGuru among others, would this taupe eyeshadow live up to the hype?

First of all, it is a very pretty colour. A slightly cool-toned, not too brown, not too gray shade without any purple, “Yukon” really is a true taupe. From how it appears in the pan, I really wasn’t expecting it to be as shimmery though. That was a surprise. I got a bit of fall-down and what was under my eye was almost sparkly. On the eye, it definitely has a sheen. It was also slightly on the sheerer side; not quite as pigmented as, say, a MAC shadow. But I found I could build it up, and it did stay on all day with an eyeshadow primer.

Overall I really like it. I can understand why it is a favourite, mainly because taupes are elusive. “Yukon” is a very flattering, natural looking type of shade.

The Cargo singles retail for $19.00 CAD which SEEMS expensive at first, but its huge – you get 3.5g of eyeshadow. By comparison a MAC single is only 1.5g for $18.00. So you will have loads of taupe! 🙂

I haven’t tried any other Cargo eyeshadow shades. Have you? Which would you recommend?

Thanks for stopping by ❤
