If Cargo was a girl in my former high school, she’d be our valedictorian. Obviously one of the smartest girls in our school, but also one of the prettiest. She had it all. Oh yeah, and she was also super sweet (so you couldn’t hate her!)
It’s that winning combo of brains and beauty that Cargo shares; gorgeous makeup meets clever ideas and pioneering packaging to give you one of the most original lines in the business. Since their launch over 13 years ago (remember the introduction of their huge dual lip gloss tins? I sure do!) this Canadian company has been in the forefront of innovative products. From the revolutionary blu-ray collection, created especially for filming in high-definition to the Red Dot Design Award winning Foundation Pouch, they continue to figure out what we need before we even know we need it.
We felt like regular beauty scientists testing four of their latest ground-breaking products…
Lash Activator Mascara – Packed with natural ingredients proven to increase the appearance of lashes’ length and fullness. You can use this as a primer or a mascara alone, but best of all? Bigger, better lashes is 30 days.
Water Resistant Bronzer – Their beautiful, natural looking bronzer gets even better with the addition of waterproofing. A silicone-coated talc helps it to stay on the skin and withstand water and perspiration. Hello Summer!
Classic Lip Gloss – How do you make a great lip gloss even better? (To me, that’s like how do you make chocolate even more delicious?!) With Timestrip, a technology that shows you when your gloss needs to be replaced. That’s if you don’t use it all first, with it’s non sticky formula and fabulous pigmentation.
Plant Love Lipstick – And just like the valedictorian, they’re sweet too! Cargo is the first prestige beauty brand to carry a ECOcert natural designation with the introduction of Plant Love. Plant based packaging materials, no use of synthetic dyes or fragrance and 2 dollars from every sale is donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The line recently branched out to other products, but we got to test their first outing, their lipstick in the Angie Harmon designed shade of Grace (an ode to her daughter).
So, how about it Review Team, are you going to write LYLAS in Cargo’s yearbook? Let us know your thoughts!
