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.
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.
