I am reviewing an alluring lip gloss today from the brand Cargo. Honestly, I came to know about this brand through IMBB. Though I am not a lip gloss person, this one has changed my mind for good.
Introducing a new generation of Cargo’s lip gloss now housed in a larger package. Its super high shine gloss delivers intense color payoff and locks in moisture to keep lips feeling hydrated. This long wearing lip gloss has a slick texture that feels creamy, gliding over lips without being sticky. Ingredients such a Vitamin E and Jojoba Seed oil help increase lip moisture and decrease the appearance of furrows around the mouth while increasing lip volume to its maximum fullness.

• Super high shine gloss delivers intense color payoff.

My Experience with Cargo Rio New Essential Lip Gloss:
The lip gloss comes in a regular glass cylindrical bottle inside a well crafted cardboard box with a wand applicator. The bottle looks very similar to MAC Plush Glass. The applicator is good. I say so because I can notice the difference between pathetic ones from Maybelline and L’Oréal.
I have loved matte lip colors all this while, so buying a lipgloss has never been on my priority list until I was convinced by an SA at Nordstrom when she took all the time to make me feel more confident and create a couple of looks that left me wanting for more. I never thought a gloss would look that good on me because I have sort of pigmented lips and a bit of coverage helps to freshen up my face. 😀
The lip gloss from Cargo has 15 different shades to select from and I chose the color Rio which is a tangerine orange with high gloss finish. I tried Anguilla, Tahiti and Belgium and either they were too pale or too bright for me, I wanted something in between. This shade looked really nice with orange-coral tones and livened up my face as I had no makeup on that day. My skin got a lot of compliments from her. 😀 She was too kind.
I wore the lip gloss with the wand provided with it and it was not difficult to apply. The shade went semi opaque and made my lips look plump and glossy. The color stayed on me for 5-7 hours with light snacks in between without any trace of uncomfortable feeling. I have never felt as comfortable in a gloss as in this one. It is non-sticky yet very long wearing and it was hydrating as well even though I hadn’t used any lip balm underneath. I am happy with a non-sticky gloss as my major issue with glosses is their stickiness and weird smell and this one scores high on both the points. I would be getting another shade soon, I can say I have found my HG gloss! 😀
Pros of Cargo Rio New Essential Lip Gloss:
• Well pigmented for a gloss.
• Non sticky texture.
• Hydrating for a long time.
• Doesn’t have a weird smell.
• Long staying power for a gloss.
• An array of 15 shades to choose from.
• Makes the lips look fuller.
Cons of Cargo Rio New Essential Lip Gloss:
• Price is a bit on the higher side, but the results are so good that I am pretty much fine with it.
Would I Recommend Cargo Rio New Essential Lip Gloss?
Highly recommended to all the lip gloss lovers and even to those who are not because this is going to be a game changer.
