I am not much for bragging, but I feel this haul was one that needed to be bragged about: I obtained a lot of Cargo products to fill my make up drawer. For those who are not familiar with Cargo, it is cruelty-free and is made from post-consumer and recycled products. The packaging also has an industrial-type look to it. Also, it is on the expensive side. An average cost of a piece from Cargo runs at about $32.00 or €23.50. Well, today, I obtained 5 pieces from Cargo. Want to know the verdict? $23! That's right, I cleaned Ulta of their discount Cargo shelf and got 5 pieces for $23. The haul that I bought would have cost me around $96 if I were to buy it full price. Here are the products:
Next, Chatanooga. This one comes in the tin and is best applied with a lip brush. There are 2 colors as you can see, and both are swatched above. The one on the left I immediately fell in love with. It is similar to Turkish Delight in color, but the consistence is more of a gel. It lasts for ever as well. The only negative is if you apply too much, it looks REALLY globby. The scent is pretty nice as well. It smells almost like oatmeal if that makes sense? I would definitely purchase this, if it comes in a wand. I love the cut little tin on my makeup table, but it isn't very portable: if you put this in your pocket, people might think you have a container of chew in your pocket. We don't want that. Color: 10/10. Overall, 8/10.
The right side was not as practical as the left. The right was glittery...like REALLY glittery. Almost like a drag queen. It can be seen from miles away. What I DID like however, is this gloss is SUPER glossy. it looks like the gloss on Maybelline commercials. You know, when it almost looks wet. It was a little too much for me, but as an accent, like a dab in the center of your lip to add dimension, this works perfectly. However, I think $48 is a lot for a "little accent dab". Color: 6/10: borderline tacky, but not awful.
I hope this review will inspire you to try the Cargo line. I am definitely a fan and I can promise you this brand wont let you down. Thanks for reading!
