Felt all forms of nostalgia while shooting these makeups from Cargo; I remember the time when I was starting with this blog and relied only on a measly budget that could only afford second- hand pricey makeups bought over at femalenetwork from fellow makeup lovers to sustain this blog; it was the time when I encountered Cargo. After 6 years, we meet again and this time, it's brand new! Started from the bottom and now we are here, Cargo! :D
Today, I'm going to swatch my Cargo loot; these are some of their best- sellers. Review below!
Magic Brush is made up of scientifically- engineered bristles; the bristles pick up and let go of powder and liquid products, readying it for next use. Brush can be used for powder or liquid makeup.
I don't know exactly how scientifically- engineered bristles work, but what I do know is this powder is marvelous with powder makeup; it indeed picks up the right amount of product in one go and the calculated diameter enables the brush to deposit the powder on the skin with minimal fallout so nothing ever truly goes to waste. This is perfect for spot powder touch- ups! The bristles are soft, have the right amount of flexibility, and doesn't shed if washed. Haven't tried it with liquid products, but I feel that it works the same as Guerlain The Foundation Brush.
Swimmables Eye Pencil is a proprietary Cargo product. It promises to stay put under the sun, in sweat, water, and tears. Sounds amazing! The shade I have is called Secret Beach, a highlighter shade.
Swimmables Water Resistant Blush apparently has a sweat- proof and weatherproof formula and comes in three shades only; wish there were more!
Cargo's blush packaging is one of my most favorite for life; it's unique, huge, and proves to be sturdier than acrylic packaging. The cover seals tightly also.
Secret Beach is a light cream shade. I use it as a water liner and as a brow bone highlighter. It is a creamy, pigmented pencil that sets efficiently, allowing me to blend the product properly before it becomes budge- proof.
Los Cabos is described as a soft tangerine shade. It's indeed a tangerine shade with soft gold overspray; how perfect for summer and warm skin! Formula is silky, pigmentation is medium to heavy, and texture is smooth.
Boundless Lashes that apparently has three different sides on the wand to amplify, volumize, and lengthen lashes. First side coats lashes evenly, second side combs through lashes, and third side lifts lashes.
The one I got is the sample size. The wand, even if synthetic, is flexible and doesn't hurt my eyes.
CARGO COSMETICS IN ACTION
I wore Swimmables in Secret Beach on my lower lash line. Been out the whole day for events and a christmas dinner; I applied it at 2pm and went home at 10pm and the silhouette of the line is pretty much still there. Wow! If you are a fan of lining your waterline, this product is for you. It stays put like cray!
I applied three coats of Boundless Lashes in this photo. I don't really know how the three sides look like and how they actually perform, but the look I get from this mascara is full and defined; I like the intense pigmentation and lengthening properties, but it's not exactly my idea of volumized lashes; for some, this kind of volume should be just fine; it's just that I want my lashes to look falsies- like with any mascara I wear. :)
Los Cabos is a pretty shade; it's a more golden version of my favorite orange blush, Nars Gina. True enough, this blush is fade- proof and doesn't budge; I haven't used it while swimming though, but it can survive a sweaty face!
Overall, the rest of Cargo's products are highly promising; but of course, the blush will always be my favorite! :)
