Light Cargo

I want to know who it is over there at Cargo who keeps coming up with these great new concepts. First, Daily Gloss, the little blister packs of single use lip gloss (see my rave on this product). Then, EyePods, those cute single-serving wands of cream eye shadow. Now, something new, which undoubtedly will be resident in my purse by the weekend.

Introducing ColorCards, a little silver tin stacked with single use eyeshadows on flat cards. Each is about the size and thickness of a business card, and the pack contains 28 cards in 7 gorgeous, sheer shades. I'll be keeping some of these in my wallet for emergency purposes, thank you very much. You never know when you're going to need a little pick me up.

But let's get back to reality for a minute. On a typical day, I might touch up my eyeliner and lip gloss, but it's rare that I touch up eye shadow. Do I really need this? Probably not. But you can bet that I'm going to buy it anyway.

What will they come up with next? I'm betting on mini eye and lipliners the size of those little pencils you use to keep score at miniature golf.
