The Hawaiian-inspired Cargo Cosmetics You Had Me At Aloha Eye Shadow Palette is the jewel of the Cargo Cosmetics Limited-Edition Spring/Summer 2017 collection.  This 12-shade shadow palette is brilliantly organized in three quads of color, or to be used as duos-for a more simple shadow look.  The overall palette leans purple, reminding me of a beautiful Hawaiian Orchid.  Let’s take an up-close look at these shades!
