Executive Summary

Cargo Cosmetics: Niche Canadian brand takes inspiration from Mediterranean and Eastern culture for "exotic" holiday offerings. Hands of Hope Collection ($29) consists of nine eyeshadows, each embossed with the Hamsa - a protective hand-shaped amulet and "enduring emblem of peace, hope and prosperity," Cargo says. According to the company, the eyeshadow shades are among the hottest of the season, including vibrant purple, fern green, frosted cool brown, midnight blue and gunmetal gray. With the Mediterranean Nights Collection ($34), which comprises four eyeshadows and two blush/bronzer duos, "you have everything you need to evoke the glow of a Mediterranean holiday, just in time for all your holiday parties," Cargo says. Finally, firm introduces "the perfect stocking stuffer"- its Eastern Eye Pencil Collection of five mini eye pencils in a "sleek, cigarette-style case" for "eyes that pop all night long," priced at $18. Shades include exotic eggplant, sparkling green tea and burnished olive. Items launch in mid-October in Sephora doors and at Sephora.com. This summer Cargo launched what it touted as a "truly safe and efficacious" eyelash growth product, formulated with marine algae extracts (1"The Rose Sheet" March 30, 2009)
