The Cargo Swimmables™ Collection offers waterproof, sweatproof and weatherproof beauty! The Swimmables Collection includes waterproof blushes, bronzers, eye pencils, eye shadow sticks, brow pencils, lip pencils and liquid lipsticks perfect for summer weather! Plus, the Swimmables™ Waterproof Mascara Top Coat transforms any mascara making it waterproof.

The line has been around for several years, but until now I had only tried the Swimmables Longwear Eyeshadow Stick and Swimmables Eye Pencil. The brand was kind enough to send me several Swimmables to try and I’ve got to say, they really do live up to the claim of being waterproof!

Cargo Swimmables Longwear Foundation $34 comes in 8 shades (I’d love to see more) and is lightweight with medium but buildable coverage. It is quite thin but provides good coverage. I used a bit more on my chin where my foundations always wear off and it didn’t get cakey. I am shade 20, light beige which is a good match for me–quite surprising since the shade range is so limited.

Splashed water on my arm and it bubbles up and…
and runs off while the foundation is still in place!

The foundation is truly long-lasting and I didn’t set it with any powder. It blends seamlessly with a natural finish and doesn’t settle into my lines and wrinkles. But here’s the best part–it IS waterproof! After applying, I splashed my face with water and I had drops of water on my skin that simply brushed off but left the foundation in place! I for one, won’t wear foundation to the beach or pool, but it’s great for sweaty workouts and summer activities in the heat or humidity.

Cargo Swimmables Water Resistant Blush$26 is available in 3 shades (again I wish there were more shades) and the color won’t streak or fade because it’s sweat-proof and weatherproof! The secret is silicone-coated pigments to provide better adhesion to the skin and help withstand water for extended wear. The formula also contains L-Lysine, an amino acid found naturally in the skin to help increase the blush’s long-wearing and water-resistant properties.

I have Los Cabos, a matte soft tangerine. This shade is perfect for a summer flush and I know I’ll be using it a lot this summer. It very pigmented so a lot goes a long way plus it’s very long-lasting. I’m VERY happy with this blush!

Swimmables Longwear Eye Shadow Stick$20 is crease-proof and water resistant. You have a small window, just about 20 seconds to blend and then it will stay until you take it off. There are 8 pretty colors from neutrals to brights. I received Glacier Bay, a shimmery nude that is great for every day. These are creamy and glide on easily, even lined lids! I wouldn’t mind having more colors.

Swimmables Eye Pencil$18. I have several of these little miracle Eye Pencils and I adore them! These stay put through sun, sweat, swim and even tears! They are very creamy and glide on with no tugging. There are 12 pigmented shades and I received one of the newest, Dorado Beach, a beautiful gold bronze.

After one pass with soap and water to remove

I finished this Cargo Swimmables Waterproof look off with the Cargo Essential Lip Color $22 in Bombay, a shimmering rose shade. Though not waterproof, it does leave a bit of a stain.

Bottom Line: If you’re looking for waterproof, sweatproof makeup that can take the heat and humidity of summer, choose Cargo Swimmables!
