At first, I really disliked this color, it looked dull and ashy on my NC20 skin. Then, as I used more and more of it and 'broke' the surface of the pan, the color got much more pigmented and became the rich plum that I now love. It has the perfect amount of shimmer to make it interesting but not over the top and also makes a great crease color to play second fiddle to greyish taupes or …Read more

This is the best plum colour I've ever seen! I love it. I stood at the Cargo counter for ages and couldn't decide whether to go for Ceylon or Cyprus. I'm so glad I chose Ceylon.... It's a beautiful dark silky plum (with gold undertones I think), excellent as a crease colour (still trying to find the perfect match but that's a different story). Anyway, I also tried it with …Read more

Herm. I'm disappointed. You may be confused because I'm giving it high ratings and yet I'm disappointed. That is because I'm a fair reviewer. I don't knock a product because the color is wrong for me if it's still a great product, which this is! As others have said, it looks like a straight-up grape purple in the tin. That's why I bought it w/o swatching it …Read more

This is a beautiful color. When I first opened it up, it looked like a straight-forward grape-y purple in the tin (to my dismay). When I brushed it onto my lids, it turned into an amazing bronzed plum (with the plum only a tiny bit more dominant) with a faint golden sheen (not really shimmery, in my opinion--rather, there's a subtle glow to the color). Soooo flattering with my light-warm …Read more

This is a gorgeous shimmery plum. No glitter here! It's not in-your-face purple and look either smoldering or sophisticated depending on how much you layer on. Perfect alternative to gray or black for a smoky eye and also works as liner. Even though I have a million and one plums and purples I still needed this one. For some reason I thought the color ceylon was a shade of green? I could be …Read more

I just got this shade and it is my first Cargo e/s. I absolutely love the shade. It has a perfect amount of shimmer, and is a great colour. It is also good for paler skin, which is excellent as I am rarely able to pull off plummy shades.

Ceylon is a shimmery deep plum brown. The Cargo SA suggested wearing this with Cannes (a shimmery light pink) and Halifax (matte medium dusty pink). Like most of Cargo's e/s, this is nicely pigmented and blendable.

All this time I've been searching for the perfect dark, dark brown, when all I needed was this Cargo eyeshadow. At first I thought it was a dark brown with shimmer, but I noticed the plum. I put it down and checked the MUA reviews. Went right back to Sephora the next day to get it. LOVE it. I'm not a plum/purple person but this doesn't scream purple. The plum gives the …Read more

What a gorgeous colour! A deep plummy purple with a bronzey tone to it. Very nicely pigmented and wears really well. Gorgeous with blue eyes. I've been shying away from anything purple since all it takes is the wrong nuance of colour to make me look bruised, but this has rekindled my interest in purples.
I'm very pleased to report the reviews here did not steer me wrong!
