heavy cargo ahead

The Canadian makeup line, CARGO, is re-marketing their products, according to their PR statement:
For 2010, CARGO has begun an evolution with its relationship with Sephora that will take several months. We are focusing our brand on Sephora Inside JC Penney and we will be a top feature brand for them. By the end of this year, over 200 Sephora Inside JC Penney stores are expected to carry the full range of CARGO products.
We will be removing CARGO from the other Sephora doors in North America. CARGO products will continue to be sold within Sephora's European markets: France, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, Portugal, Romania, Turkey and the Middle East. In addition, CARGO will continue to be available at Ulta, QVC, Beauty 360, Independent Beauty Boutiques, Murale (Canada) and Boots (UK).
So, to break it down, CARGO will now only be sold at select boutiques and nation-wide through Murale which is similar to Sephora. The bad news is that it won't be as readily available as before. The good news is that all CARGO products are 50% off at all Sephora stores! As you can see below, I took advantage of this and stocked up on a few things to try out:

My collective haul from Sephora.
From top to bottom: blu ray High Definition Lip Gloss in Panama (a muted raspberry), Classic Lip Gloss in Tobago (soft baby pink) and Halifax (pale peachy pink; although to me, it's more peachy than pink.)
SuedeBlush in Montebello (a swirly mix of sweet peach, sheer raspberry and golden bronze.) I LOVE this blush! Glides on smoothly and it looks very natural. It's also very pigmented. I realized that after my first try and I ended up with very red cheeks. Had to tone it down with some concealor so it didn't look like I was sunburnt.
Colour Eye Shadow Palette in London.
Colours: matte brown/shimmering pale gold/matte eggplant and deep olive sheen
Baja: bronze sheen/light pink sheen/matte peach/shimmering beige taupe
