Cargo Blu_ray Lip Gloss, A New Favorite!

I may have found my perfect shade of lip gloss. Awhile back I got a sample of Cargo Blu-ray gloss from a Cargo Blu_ray Lip Gloss Quad. The Blu_ray line is promoted as “high definition makeup” that was designed for make-up artists to use for high definition filming. Of course, Cargo promotes and sells it to the everyday buyer too.

Anyway, according to the literature that came with the sample, the lip gloss contains hyaluronic acid (moisturizing) and peptides (anti-aging) to plump and fill fine lines. It also has transparent pearl pigments to  provide an even color.

The gloss is packaged in a four color palette, but I received a sample of only the rosy pink shade. That shade turned out to be absolutely perfect for me.  You will often read that for a natural, lightly tinted lip, look for a shade that matches the skin on the inside of your lip. The cargo shade was a perfect match for me. The gloss itself is pretty well pigmented and a bit thick, but not sticky. I’m always impressed with high tint that avoids stickiness, it is a hard combination to find sometimes.  The gloss also has a very light and pleasant peppermint scent and flavor.

The look of the gloss is fabulous. It is not too shiny, but not totally matte either. Basically it is a nice even and natural looking color that feels great.

I liked this one so much that I ordered the quad online the same day that I tried the sample. I’ll swatch it when it arrives and post up the picture. Cargo Blu_ray gloss will also be making my best of 2008 list.
