This is one of two limited edition ( movie merchandising tie in) for the Star Wars franchise,released in fall /winter 2017 . I got mine for Christmas 2017. Initially, I was wishing that I had received the Dark side palette, but after seeing YouTube reviews I'm happy with the one I have.The palette measures at about seven inches long by about three wide and three quarters of an inch deep. Outer box is shiny black with a metallic gold foil embossing for the light side logo and lettering.There are eight shadows in the palette, and unlike other Cargo palettes,these are not named but numbered with Roman numerals ( reference to movie ?) . Actual palette packaging duplicates the outer box , again giving a shorthand tutorial recommendations as to how to put together a eye look. Stated shelf life is supposedly 12 months. Inner packaging is the texture glitter in black .( I see the tie in thought- starry space hyperdrive etc. but it loses a star from me for that. I don't care for the glitter texture in my hands , I would have preferred a smooth black slightly jelly texture with silver specks imbedded within-easier to keep clean. )As to the shadows they all seem to be warm toned in this palette , unlike the other Cargo palettes in my collection. The shadows all work well together, in 5 matte and 3 lightly satin formats.1. Warm cream/ beige matte2. Warm cream /beige satin possibly a hair darker 3. Warm Terracotta Peach matte 4. Warm mauve satin5. Light terra/peach satin ( approximately two to three steps down in color intensity from #3)6.Brown/Berry/ Burgundy matte7. Medium- Dark Brown matte8. Dark plum brown ( satin ? Micro sparkles) I've enjoyed this palette, every look I've done with it has pleased me . I don't recall any creasing ( didn't use primer) . Yes the color scheme is somewhat limited ( peach/berry/ brown) but I like it ( and am stocking up on warm palettes while they are easily obtainable) . There can be a bit of fallout , but the usual tactics ( tap your brush, do eyes first, use eye shields, powder a bit heavily under eyes and brush away any fallout etc.) apply. I didn't have any major issues with fallout , and I usually do my makeup on Sunday mornings as a passenger on the way to church! The peachy colors are also useable as a coordinating blush. Pan size is 0.07 X 8 ; or 8x 2.25g. The eyeshadow texture is sort of smooth,dry and a bit powdery, but not lacking in pigment. It's between Estée Lauder and Lorac in pigmentation in my opinion.If I ran out and could still find it? Yes , I'd repurchase. I'd recommend this to warm neutral matte palette lovers. If you liked the UD Daydream palette, Heat or Petite Heat, TF Peachy Mattes then this might be one you'll love too . For more variety I'd combo this palette with some metallic shades ( gold, rose gold, copper, bronze, champagne) or maybe a plummy purple or warm pink glitter pigment. Over all I'm very happy with it , as I usually default to mattes lately.

Cargo Getaway Eyeshadow PaletteI found this eyeshadow palette at TJ Maxx for $5. I have several of Cargo’s shadow palettes and they are all great. This includes 12 shadows in plums and gray shades with a couple nuetral shadows thrown in. There are shimmer and mattes in the collection as well. Super pigmented, finely milled and quality shadows that blend easily and last all day with a good base. Love!

The eyeshadows are all super pigmented, buttery, very blendable and not prown to huge amounts of fallout. Plus they are more cool toned and/or neutral. Most eye palettes seem super warm, which is not for me. I love this. The brush is excellent and the eyeliner doesn't suck, it's very blendable and easily smoked out.

I guess I must've been lucky with these, as none of those I've gotten have been dry (I've owned 6 in total: 3 black ones, one grey, one gold, one dark green). I like these because they are very smooth (no puling at my eyelashes) and deposit a lot of color. On me, they last well without smudging, all day. The only thing I dislike is that the pencils need to be sharpened - twist-ups are always more practical IMO.
