The Holiday Beauty Fest continues… with a beloved Canadian cosmetics fave!
It’s CARGO Cosmetics of course! A long time cult-favourite thanks to their signature oversized metal tins of lip gloss (love!), CARGO is a multi award winner with such pedestal-worthy products as their blu-ray Collection, PlantLove Lipsticks, Lip Glosses and more.
I am so excited to feature this brand which offers innovative, best selling products for girls on the go – after all, a girl’s makeup is her CARGO!
The company recently launched CARGO blu-ray cosmetics; a revolutionary line created specifically for high-definition filming which provides up-close coverage, yet looks completely natural. In other words, get ready to achieve flawless results! The collection offers face, cheek and eye products, in addition to a pore refining, line minimizing High Definition Mattifier.
What can I say about the Lip Gloss Duo? Other than it just happens to be a favorite of beauty editor’s the world over. The glosses are sheer with a hint of colour, and there’s just something about the consistency that has me wanting to keep one everywhere (vanity, purse, car, you get it). Pictured left is Bella Bella, which includes a peachy, sheer gloss and its nemesis – a vampy, tart fuchsia. Never sticky and formulated to last, the duos boast 21 different combinations packed with rosemary extract and vitamin E.
Pictured left is The Essential Eye Shadow Palette in “Smoky”, which contains everything you need for a seriously sexy eye, including basic instructions on where to apply the shadows (each of the four shades is embossed with its function/use – Browbone, Lid, Crease, Outer Corner – to make the application process a breeze). The four shades are gradations of each other; ranging from light to dark, with a combination of matte and satin finishes.
The eyeshadow stays put. No flaking, flawless application and wonderful blending capabilities, I only need the perfect excuse to rock a come-hither eye, and have a few holiday parties lined up for just that purpose. The palette is also available in warm, cool and dark combinations.
If you’re a celebrity enthusiast like me, you’ll appreciate their PlantLove Lipsticks for two reasons: first, they’re a 100% natural lipstick, with a tube made entirely from corn! PlantLove lipsticks are certified by ECOCERT for being environmentally friendly in product, packaging, and process, and $2 from every celeb-designed lipstick goes to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
And there’s the second reason – celebs galore! Such famous gals like Angie Harmon, Denise Richards, Courteney Cox, Whitney Port and La Lindsay have all designed lip colours for the PlantLove line.
CARGO Cosmetics can be found at select Sears and The Bay locations, and online at Ulta.com.
