High Intensity Gloss by Cargo Cosmetics

Courtesy of Cargo Cosmetics
I’m always skeptical when it comes to testing lip glosses, because they are usually too sticky and come off during morning coffee.  I hate having to reapply makeup and fuss over myself throughout the day.
I recently fell head over heels for Cargo’s High Intensity Gloss – the texture was the right amount of sheer gorgeous color that lasted throughout morning coffee.  The conditioning properties kept my lips hydrated and moist all day.
I especially loved the instant pretty water-color effect, my lips looked plump and naturally healthy.
The convenient dial-up pen dispensed the right amount of product making it an easy and smooth application.  I loved being able to layer the color,  achieving  the perfect shade of ripe, rich berries.
Naturally I tested Ecuador, a deep berry red that had me in rapture.  I’m a big fan of Red Lipstick and love finding alternatives in the modern formulations of Red.
