The Eyes Have It

Posted February 1, 2005
I have certain fashion rules, and it takes a lot to break them. Rules include: animal prints never work; no shorts; and stay away from eye makeup, especially eye shadow. It feels gross on my lids, it looks really harsh, and it always finds a way into my contact lenses. So when Cargo sent me their latest creation—their Liquid Shadow Collection with six spring colors—I said no way. But then I tried it. The creamy shadow went smoothly on my lids, the colors layered for barely-there hues or stronger shades, and after a 12-hour trial, my contacts were still clear. So I've changed my mind about eye shadow—but I'll still never wear shorts.
