I was super excited when I got a personal email from one of the staff members telling me of my prize. She was enthusiastic, warm and was gracious enough to send me one of their award winning blushes in Mendocino to test out.
Ive been wearing both the blush and mascara for 2 days now and adore them both.
According to Cargo's site the mascara stimulates the growth of lash follicles, promotes lash vitality, and reduces lash loss in just 30 days! I mean really who doesn't want stronger longer lashes?
Its still to early to tell if this claim is true however the mascara itself is pretty good. The wand is a bit like the DEFINE-A-LASH mascara by Maybelline for comparison purposes. The formula and flexible wand made my lashes long without clumping and I really only needed 1 coat to go from this....
You can see just how much it opened my eyes and made my lashes appear thicker.
I have tried mascaras that made every claim in the book and what usually ends up happening with me is I'll use them once and if I'm not impressed they never get used again. I can honestly say that Cargo's mascara will not only be used on a regular basis but will probably be re-bought!
I was really excited to try out Cargo's blush as I had heard tons of fab things about it. I was sent Mendocino which has turned out to suit my skin tone perfectly and is fast becoming my favorite blush. The pigmentation is awesome and it glides on my skin really easily. Also look at the size of this blush... its pretty generous.
I'm a sucker for packaging so I'm a total fan the simplicity and modernness of Cargo's products.
Here you can see the mascara in full effect and a light dusting of the blush.
What else I love about Cargo Cosmetics:
- They are 100% Canadian :)
- They make an 100% Natural lipstick line named Plant Love. The lipstick itself is botanical, and the tube is made out of corn. In addition, you can plant the box and grow plants from it because it contains seeds and $2 from every celeb-designed lipstick goes to benefit St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
- Amazing quality
- Available online and at Sephora
- The name CARGO comes from the idea that makeup is every woman's "cargo." - love that!
- Over sized tins
- Fab staff!
