Props to Cargo for creating foundation in a packaging that resembles that of an IV drip.
God forbid I’m ever in need of an IV drip, Cargo Liquid Foundation would be my IV of choice.
Unconventional or innovative packaging?
Beauty Most Unusual for the most part….
What do you think?
Like this quad?
Cargo PlantLove Eye Shadow Quad contains four full-sized Cargo PlantLove Eyeshadows. Each shadow is a shimmering, highly pigmented shade that’s organic and paraben-free!
The quad is $25 bucks at Sephora but you can steal it for….
Eep! Sephora has the quad available for a mere $5 dollars right now. Shades included are Iris (deep violet shimmer), Thyme (pale golden olive shimmer), Zinnea (copper gold shimmer), and Ginger (warm orange brown shimmer).
Quite worthy of a pick up dontcha agree? I just plopped one in my cart, might as well. Swatches and review to follow!
Speaking of exfoliation….we were talking about it a few posts up and since the Muse has a one track mind, might as well stick to the topic she was on earlier….what was I saying?
Speaking of exfoliation Cargo Blu_Ray Polishing Clothes kinda butter my toast lately!
Jump ahead for a review, a babble, and some pictures!
Cargo Blu_Ray Polishing Clothes are a box of 20 facial exfoliating clothes that are meant to shrub away dead skin and polish your face up to a baby smooth finish.
And they don’t work….
At first anyway.
They do promise the world in a small box like removing makeup, preventing blackheads and ache, and reducing the signs of sun damage and honestly I can’t really say they do ALL that but they do actually make my skin buttery soft but first I had to learn how to use them.
First try they do nothing. I really seen no results at all but than….slowly…I noticed my skin becoming smooth, softer, and my moisturizer was sinking in hells quicker. If you’re as impatient as I am and want to see results double quick you’ll be disappointed as these definately do not give results right away. With patience and proper use you’ll notice a certain smoothness to your skin in about two weeks of use. I’m lucky I didn’t give up right away on them otherwise I’d have not noticed how properly soft my skin was after I used them well over a month.
The clothes are reusable so you can get plenty of use from one package although it is slightly gross to reuse considering bacteria and the likes. I got about 4 uses total from one cloth before I was feeling the need to ditch them. The best results I noticed were when I used these on a already clean, damp skin with a drop of Philosophy Microdelivery squeezed on the cloth.
I was quite frustrated not seeing results right away and I was on the verge of simply tossing the box but I was stubborn and kept at it and now I’m done with my first box and ready for a new one as I’m loving the results. One of my main problems with exfoliating products is the fact that they make my dry skin even more dry and tight. If I choose I can use these on clean, damp skin minus product so it’s a natural way to remove my dry, flaky skin without adding product to an already dry face that will in turn make it feel even worst.
All in all I think they are a fine deal and worth trying out. I liked the results and noticed a grave improvement when applying foundation and moisturizer!

Green goes glam with the new Cargo Plant Love Cosmetics Collection! Cargo’s Plant Love Collection is one of the few organic/natural lines I’ve tried that’s actually really, really good.
Normally I find that collections that embrace their green friendly side end up forsaking quality but I was pretty impressed with the quality and performance of the items I tried out from the line.
Jump ahead to hear my review!
The entire Plant Love Collection is natural in origin including it’s packaging. Plant Love is free of parabens, phthalates, petro-chemicals, synthetic dyes, and fragrances. The packaging on each item is made from polylatic acid which is a polymer made up entirely from corn! Soak the box from your purchase in water and plant it! It’s embedded with wildflower seeds. Pretty cool right?
I’m honestly not a fond fan of bronzer as you may already know from reading my past reviews however I’ve taken baby steps to embrace the bronzer world. When I tried out Cargo Plant Love 100% Natural Origin Bronzer I was a bit skeptical and worried as the shade isn’t particularly flattering in the pan. The color is a dull brown without a hint of shimmer, you know that the Muse minus shimmer is never a pretty event. However, I felt determined to give this a try and I was quite pleasantly surprised and shocked how much I loved it.
The shade is actually quite natural, sheer, and easy to blend. I actually used it conjunction with a tiny bit of my Bobbi Brown Rouge Pot. I applied a bit of the Rouge Pot to my cheeks and topped it with this. The bronzer deepened the rouge and created a very soft focused, healthy, glowing look. This is made with natural terracotta ingredients minus harmful parabens. Considering the product is so sheer it creates a glow rather than going overboard into the land of Oompa Loompa as some bronzers are known to do. I liked the overall effect and I’m actually delighted that I liked it so much.
Now the real star of the show are the Cargo Plant Love 100% Natural Origins Eye Shadow. Oh. My. God. So good. You really need to try these out. They blend like an absolute dream! The formula is so light yet manages to have sincerely great color payoff. The shadow glides onto the eye beautifully well and blends perfectly. I tried a few colors which I’ll review for you in a second post but the shade I was most in love with was Parakeet which was a beautiful orangy copper with a nice shimmer finish. The shade is ideal for a warm Summer look.
The last product I tried was the Plant Love Lipstick. Two dollars from every sale of the lipstick sale benefits the St. Jude Children’s Hospital. The formula of the lipstick is paraben-free which makes it a great find however I wasn’t too captivated by the formula. It has great color pigmentation and gives a nice rich color to lips however the texture was a tad bit too hard for me and didn’t feel too moisturizing on my lips. However, considering how natural it is I do think its well worth a repurchase. The shade I tried was Sagarmatha, a rosy taupe shade.
For my look below I used the Plant Love Bronzer on my cheeks, forehead, and face. On my eyes I’m using Plant Love Eyeshadow in Parakeet and on my lips I have on Plant Love Lipstick in Sagarmatha. I’m looking quite like Summer in the dead of Winter but I just loved how the look came out overall thanks to the great effect of the bronzer and the beautiful shade of shadow!
All in all I think the line is pretty incredible and well worth checking out for yourself especially if you’re “green” friendly. Although it’s quite natural and organic it doesn’t forsake quality in anyway. After trying out a few pieces I’m wanting to get to Sephora to explore further!
Cargo Plant Love is available now from Sephora or visit www.cargocosmetics.com for further info!
