I just bought this from beauty bay for $23. It is a fair price consider it's a big palette. I just did a makeup with 4 of them. The pigmentation is fantastic. It's good for my dark brown eyes. The powder is very blend able, can only use fingers to do it. And the big mirror is lovely. This is a good daily wear palette. I also have a Cargo shanghai duo. But they are different. The duo contains a shimmering pink and a a brown. Not the same as any color of the quad. I will repurchase if I am running out of it.

This is my go-to palette for everyday looks. I bought the last one available at my Sephora, and Iím very glad I did.
Just like other reviews said, the only complain about this palette is the pigmentation of the shadows.
One of the good things of these 4 eyeshadows is their staying power when paired with a good base. So far, Iíve used UDPP and TFSI and they look nice after 9 hours at work with no touch ups (I cannot say the same for other shadows Iíve used). Also, each shadow is 3.5gr. And all of them are very blendable.
I think the most pigmentated color is the white e/s. The peachy one is a dark match of my skin, so it works very natural on my eyes as a base color for the other shadows.
The pink one really reminds me of a paler version of the NARS ORGASM, because the pale pink is not dramatic, but the gold flecks look just gorgeous.
The dark taupe color works fine on the crease, because it blends really well, and I think it works really nice to create SOFT smokey looks (not dramatic ones, and I like that, because I have very small eyes, and this color looks great and donít make them look small).
The packaging is great, and the huge mirror is one of the best things of this palette.
As for the price, I don't think it's overpriced, but I would really enjoy it if it were cheaper :)

I bought this over a year ago on sale at Sephora. I used the light brown color (also described as beige-peach) as a base and the taupe on the crease. The pigmentation is not great, but works well to give a natural look. Overall, it is a good quality eyeshadow. Unfortunately, I knocked it off my table and when it fell, the case broke at the hinges, completely detaching the lid. This was the only time I've had a case break this way, with no other damage whatsoever.

I bought this palette for I was looking for a natural look palette.Colours seemed to look very nice and as I tried them on my fingers they looked quite pigmented: not at all! When I had my make up with this product I couldn't almost see if you had some eyeshadows on the eyelid.
The darker brown and the white one are quite nice, but nothing amazing;The other two colours are almost invisible!
I paid 27 euros for this palette, which seems to me expansive if you cannot use the half of the palette!
What about the packaging? Well, it is extremely solid and it does have a very big mirror in it: that's what I like..but they could have paid more attenction on the decoration, which is just a plastic paper put under the first plastic layer ( sorry for the bad description my english is just a foreign language for me).
Anyway, I don't really care for the packaging if the product is ok, but it isn't.
If the shadows were pigmented I guess this would have been a good deal, because the size is good...I'm sorry, because I really liked Cargo's products before..next time I will look more carefully when I'm buying their eyeshadows.

It's a nice compact with four beautiful colors. As sephora.com describes them, they're white shimmer/ matte peach beige/ shimmering golden pink/ deep taupe shimmer.
It's a great deal for those who loves a natural look, and the packaging is absolutely beautiful.
I personally was hoping for more pigmentation out of this palate, but i guess it's actually ok since it was probably designated for a natural look hence I will probably not buy it again.

This palette is very wearable. It has a shimmery white, a shimmery pink, a light brown and a darker brown. I believe they all have some shimmer to them, but the browns are less so than the lighter shades. They work perfectly together and apply and blend so easily. It's a very natural look and can be used day or night. I like the white alot to use on the inner corner...really makes my eyes pop and look brighter. If this ever does run out, I will definitely by again. It was $28US. The case is lovely and protective and has a large mirror inside. I picked up their brush kit as well, and love it. ($32US) It tells you which end of the brush to use for what, which is great for me as an e/s newbie. They are really soft and no shedding. SO HAPPY with this purchase. Very much worth it!!
