And the Cargo Girl is back 😀 !!!I should become its brand ambassador, right guys? For today’s review, I caught hold of one of their mascara. To be honest, mascara does not top my list of everyday makeup essentials, unlike in the west. I’d rather step out of the house without wearing it, than subject my eyes through the torture of taking it off! To make it a lot easier on my eyes, I always go for a mascara that isn’t waterproof and can be taken off effortlessly. This isn’t a waterproof mascara, and hence I decided to give it a try!
At Cargo, innovation is always key. Using the latest technology in pigments and styling polymers, we have been able to create a triple action mascara that thickens, lengthens, and curls all in one. It’s like your favorite 3 mascaras in 1!
Features and Benefits
• Unique styling polymers and a special brush separate and curl your lashes while thickening and lengthening.
• Ultra-rich, jet-black pigments give definition and drama to the lashes.
• Contains antioxidants and 11 amino acids essential for follicle health to condition and fortify your lashes.
• Longwearing and non-smudging formula that washes off with warm water and cleanser.
How to use
• For instant volume apply one coat to the lashes beginning very close to the root of the lash line and moving the brush through the lashes to the tips. Shimmy the brush back and forth as you are moving along the lashes to coat and separate the lashes.
• For extreme volume, continue to apply additional coats until desired volume is achieved.
• To remove gently massage lashes with warm soap and water and gentle pressure.
Price and Quantity: $ 20 for 9 ml
My Experience with Cargo 3 Triple Action Mascara:
The jet black mascara comes in a familiar black cylindrical tube container. The most striking feature of this mascara, is its brush. It is made out of very small, numerous and equally spaced bristles, which aren’t too sharp or rigid. The brush itself is flexible, making the process of application easier in the inner and outer corners of the eyes. Somehow I’m finding it a little difficult to describe the brush, but I think once you see it in the picture, you may get an idea of what I’m trying to say. It coats each lash, without being too clumpy. A second application looked fine, but a little clumpier.
The end result are nice, elongated lashes, which looks slightlythick. However, it doesn’t do a great job of curling my lashes. I used this without a curler on one eye and with a curler on the other eye, which only further confirmed its lack of curling ability. It definitely makes my eyes look a lot larger and the fact that I’m most satisfied about is that it is absolutely non-waterproof. It doesn’t smudge at all, and lasts until water touches it. Also, my eyelashes don’t feel super stiff, which generally happens with a lot of mascara. To take it off completely, a gentle cleanser is more than enough. I like to use this mascara on a daily basis, but for occasions where you may have to shed a tear, this would never be your best bet! Unless one may get too upset that it doesn’t curl the lashes on its own, it is a good choice to wear for day to day business. Since it isn’t easily available in India, I’d say you may not need to fret a lot over trying this out. Maybelline mascaras do a great job in the exact manner. However, if you can manage to find it, I’d say buy it mostly because of the amazing brush.

Would I Buy or Recommend Cargo 3 Triple Action Mascara?
I may purchase it again solely because it isn’t a hassle to take it off. But because it doesn’t perform one of the major point it claims, I don’t really want to recommend it. Maybelline mascaras do a great job at a price less than this. Try it mostly because of the amazing brush.
