Hello everyone! Today I have my newest and happiest dupe find, Cargo duo in Kentucky. I was desperately looking for a duplicate of Mac's Vex in a cruelty-free formula (boo Mac for selling in China) and this duo was recommended to me. First of all I want to mention though that Cargo is discontinuing this shade and so it is only available for a limited time from them in their sale section. The good news is however that instead of $20 USD for the two colours shown above, the duo is only $10. Yay. You can check it out here!
Shade! You can see the slight pink tinge of the vex dupe in this photo.
Above is the two shadows with Mac Vex on the left and Cargo Kentucky on the right. They are both shown over Milani eye primer (review in the works). The only real difference I've found between the two shades is that the Cargo alternative is slightly less pigmented.
The thing that I loved about Mac's Vex is that it essentially has three colours to it making it very complex and unique. In some lights it appears just silvery grey but in others it looks grey-green or pink. I find it super flattering on my eyes and yet still appropriate for any situation. I like it both as a highlight or as a lid colour and it pairs with most other eyeshadows. Seriously Vex is one of my top eye shadow shades and I was so disappointed when Mac went back to animal testing status.
