    The pencils don’t excite me, but I love the first two palettes. The e/s are not dark or bruisey looking. Good, fresh colors.

      the price is def part o the appeal 😀


  • 10/24/09 14:55 dina:

    so muse today in sephora i saw the shadow palette in person and it is big! square & i’d say larger than a cd jewel case. & the shadows appear to be full size – that’s a lot of product for $29! (althought not necessarily travel friendly) teh colors seemed fairly pigmented, a bit frosty :)


    • 10/26/09 9:25 the Muse:

      fantastic news dina! I think i needs it 😀 mmm the bit frosty does sway me…gotta go lookiee in Sephora this week! Thanks for the mini review hun!

    I bought the Hands of Hope palette during Sephora’s FF sale, and didn’t think it’d be that big, given the size of Cargo’s usual eyeshadow quads. The Hands of Hope palette is HUGE and a fantastic bargain–the shadow pans are definitely larger than MAC’s (probably close to being Stila’s size), and the colors are much more beautiful than the website shows. I don’t usually wear bright colors, but I adore this palette!


    • 11/23/09 12:20 the Muse:

      oooo thanks for the awesome review marilyn! I def need!!!!!!!! 😀 I haven’t indulged yet but want to!
