Waterproof and Pretty in Purple with Cargo Cosmetics

Cargo Swimmables Eye Pencil Pfeiffer Beach

We all know how complicated it can get to wear colorful eyeshadow successfully. When you’re blending multiple shades together, it’s not uncommon to use five different eyeshadows for one look.

Simplifying the process, colored eye pencils create almost the same pop of color but with a lot less effort.




Get the Look: Summer Lips Edition

Cargo Essential Lip Gloss

If you take a look at the counters right now you’ll see that the latest thing in lip products is hybridized formulas. For example: lipsticks that shine like glosses or glosses that are as opaque as lipsticks.

For the Summer, when you ideally want to wear as little product as possible, these essentially dual-purpose lippies are perfect. However, I lean towards the latter option, if only because I feel like they offer a little extra moisture for my lips.



Your Time is Up: CARGO Classic Lip Gloss with Timestrip Technology Tells You When


I know that lots of cosmetics products have expiration dates but I don’t always remember when I purchase them so that I can keep track of when I should throw anything out.

Since I usually go through a tube of mascara within three months or my foundation within 12-18 months anyway, I hardly ever have to worry about when these need to be tossed.   However, I have so many lip glosses in my beauty stash that there’s no way I can know when I need to throw out what.

Depending on the formula, I’d say lip glosses can keep up to  18-24 months before they start to smell weird or separate in texture.  Once that happens, I just chuck ‘em in the garbage. If you have as many lip products as I do, it can be a pain to go through each and every tube.

Thankfully for me I don’t need to wait for Flavor Flav to tell me when their time is up because there’s one product in my arsenal that doesn’t require any guesswork on my part – Cargo Classic Lip Gloss with Timestrip Technology.


Cargo Classic Lip Gloss with Timestrip Technology ($22 US) specifically recommends that this paraben-free lip product be used within 9 months of first usage (or cracking open the lid, in my opinion) so they created a timestrip that inserts into the cap of the gloss and will countdown until the 9 months are up.
