I received the Cargo Cosmetics Essential Lipgloss in the color Umbria in my April Boxycharm (retails for $16). It’s a beautiful sheer bronze shade lipgloss.
The packaging is pretty with the Cargo Cosmetics logo imprinted on the chrome lid. The tube is plastic. The doe foot applicator is incredibly cheap and easily bends making application almost a sloppy process. This lipgloss came in a beauty box so I can get over that detail, however, if I had paid $16 for this, I’d not be happy.
The color is very sheer. You can see the swatch on my arm shows a shimmery bronze, but when applied, it sheers out to almost clear in color. It’s still very pretty when on my lips. The lipgloss isn’t sticky, has a sweet smell, it might be vanilla, which is pleasant and not overpowering. The product feels nice and moisturizing on my lips.
I like this lipgloss and will definitely continue to use it, but unless the applicator is different in a store bought gloss, I will not repurchase.
I am giving the Cargo Cosmetics Essentials Lipgloss in Umbria *** 3 asterisks out of 5 because the packaging is cool, the color and texture is pretty, and it wears nicely.
Do you own any of the Cargo Cosmetics Essentials Lipglosses? What are your thoughts?
