CARGO Essential Lip Colors!

Press Sample

Here at Prime Beauty Headquarters, we think CARGO Cosmetics is an often overlooked, underrated brand. Their Essential Lip Colors are not talked about enough. CARGO has become known for their Swimmables line: waterproof makeup, but they are so much more than that!

Case in point, the CARGO Essential Lip Colors $22 have been around a long time and I’ve got to believe that’s because they are so fabulous, yet have you ever heard of them? I didn’t think so. I want to share this lipstick perfection with you, so keep reading!

These lipsticks provide rich, intense color in literally one swipe. They are LOADED with pigment yet very lightweight and moisturizing on the lips.  The smooth, creamy formula keeps lips hydrated with olive, jojoba and shea butter plus plumping peptides offer fullness.

There are 12 shades available I have Palm Beach, Sedona and Bombay. Palm Beach is a vibrant pinky coral that is heavenly. It has a bit of a pearlescent finish that the others don’t. Gorgeous, Palm Beach is my new Holy Grail!  Sedona is described as a bright coral, but I find it to be more orange. It is simply stunning and perfect for summer. Sedona will look spectacular with warmer complexions. Bombay is a beautiful muted rose that will suit all skin tones. These are a joy to wear, they glide on effortlessly and last a decent amount of time. Even when they do fade, there is no dreaded ring, just a nice light stain.

The packaging is quite luxe looking. The silver tubes have the CARGO logo in black printed on them, but what I really like is that the lids click on and off to make sure they are never loose enough to fall off.

CARGO Essential Lip Colors can be found at,, and Kohl’s Department Stores.
