Eyes carrying too much baggage? CARGO jets to the rescue!
I don’t know about you, but I’ve spent years looking for a holy grail concealer. Well, several types of holy grail concealers because there is pretty much a concealer for everything. I have concealers for blemishes, for redness, for under eyes, for hiding my prison tats (Just kidding about the prison tattoos, I just wanted to see if you were paying attention.) I have an exceptionally hard time rewarding a concealer with “holy grail” status, so the search is a constant in my life.
Thanks to the folks at CARGO, I am happy to report that I finally filled the position of “Holy Grail Concealer for Under Eyes”. Let me introduce you all to the new concealer in my life: CARGO Jet Lag Under Eye Concealer.
CARGO claims that this concealer will not only reduce dark circles and puffiness through concealing them, but after 28 days of continued use, it’ll actually improve the appearance of your under eye area.
At the moment, there are only two available shades: Light and Medium. For this review, the wht team received the Light shade. Typically, when I test a product that’s one-shade-fits-most-anyone type, it usually doesn’t match my super pale skin. The Jet Lag concealer actually matched my skin tone fairly well once blended – which is nothing short of a miracle. I’m curious to see how wht readers have fared with the Medium shade and can’t wait to see their thoughts in the comments (hint, hint).
The Jet Lag Under Eye Concealer ($32) is housed in a silver click pen with a brush applicator, which isn’t my favorite packaging for concealer, but such is life. A couple of clicks yield enough coverage for both under eye areas. I don’t have overly dark circles, just visible ones, so I only need one pass of this. If you have really dark circles, I recommend applying one coat, letting it dry and absorb, and then topping it with another application.
I’ve been very happy with the coverage from this concealer. As for the improvement aspects? I have to admit, I am a wee bit under the full 28 days of use, but I’m not sure if I see an actual improvement in the eye area when I am not wearing this product.
I can however vouch for how beautifully this covers my dark circles and puffiness when I’m wearing it. I also get very little creasing from this product when I apply this properly (i.e. the tiniest amount).
Better yet, the Jet Lag concealer stays put for the better part of a day and keeps my eyes looking fresh. I’m giving this one 5 stars. If it were a little cheaper, it’d get 6 stars (that’s right ladies, I would reward extra credit stars for awesomeness).
• Expertly hides dark circles and helps diminish puffiness.
• Doesn’t crease like most eye concealers.
• Light shade is a good match for the very fair.
• Free of parabens, fragrance and synthetic dyes.
•$32 for a 0.067 fl oz. tube of eye concealer is expensive. I think $20 would be more reasonable.
• Click pen is not my favorite applicator.
