Giveaway Break - Cargo Multi Mix Bronzer

Summer is officially over, but don't lose the glow! I've been using Cargo Cosmetics Multi-Mix Bronzer to keep a bronzed look this fall.

The Multi-Mix Bronzer is in liquid form and is meant to be mixed with foundation, primer or tinted moisturizer to customize the extent of your bronze glow. I like to mix it with just my regular morning moisturizer, turning my moisturizer into a tinted moisturizer. I literally only use one or two drops because a little goes a long way, especially when mixing.

The Multi-Mix Bronzer is paraben-free and contains vitamin E, a powerful anti-oxidant, to help the skin fight off environmental damage while providing moisture. It retails at $28, which seems like a lot for the small tube, but a little goes a long way, so I could see this lasting all winter.

CARGO CheekActivator

On Sunday, April 11 CARGO International make-up artist Renée Ryan will be featured on QVC sharing her famous “tips and tricks” and introducing CARGO’s most innovative product yet – CheekActivator™.

Plumped-up, dewy cheeks are the perfect way to show off – or fake – a summer glow. CARGO’s CheekActivator™ is the ticket! It’s a revolutionary cream blush that lifts and sculpts cheeks while providing a natural rosy look. Featuring skin-energizing minerals and deep tissue hydration technology, your skin will look and feel radiant. CARGO’s innovation doesn’t stop there: with CheekActivator™, you can actually customize your color! The more you rub CheekActivator™ onto your skin, the more intense the shade becomes!

Renee’s exclusive tip: To achieve a beautiful, sculpted look, apply CheekActivator™ to the hollows of the cheeks and blend upward. Your face will be instantly contoured. Remember, with CARGO’s professional, hi-tech formula, a little goes a long way. A pea-sized amount will do!

Cargo Cosmetics PlantLove

CARGO Cosmetics is pleased to announce an expanded partnership with the one-stop, upscale cosmetics shop CVS’s prestige retailer, Beauty 360. Beginning April 8, CARGO’s revolutionary, 100% natural PlantLove™ Collection will be available in Beauty 360 stores nationwide.

CARGO Founder and President Hana Zalzal comments, “The timing couldn’t be better to partner with such an inventive retailer. Beauty 360’s goal of creating a convenient way to shop for all beauty products is entirely consistent with our philosophy of making make-up better, smarter and easier for the consumer. Together, CARGO and Beauty 360™ will offer high-quality, professional-grade cosmetics that are accessible to every woman. We are excited to expand CARGO’s relationship with CVS Beauty 360 as our newest PlantLove™ retail partner.”

Always innovating, CARGO Cosmetics introduced PlantLove™ by creating the first-ever environmentally friendly lipstick. Even the packaging, a compostable tube made entirely from corn, is “green.” In response to the overwhelming success of the lipstick, CARGO launched a full PlantLove™ Collection, the only prestige brand to be given ECOCERT™, the highest eco-distinction. This global designation ensures that all product, process and packaging meet the strictest standards for natural, organic and environmentally friendly content.

To further reduce our eco-footprint, PlantLove™’s compostable packaging is made of Polylactic Acid (PLA), a polymer made from corn – a renewable and abundant resource. What’s more, PLA production emits less greenhouse gas than traditional plastics. Even PlantLove™ boxes are made from 100% post-consumer waste paperboard. The mill supplying this paperboard manufactures under carbon-neutral conditions, using 100% renewable energy. The PlantLove™ Collection is truly as good as it gets.

Hana Zalzal added “For us, PlantLove™ has always been more than a product, it’s a movement. As Mahatma Ghandi said, ‘Be the change you want to see in the world.’ We believe that small actions taken by large groups can change this world.”

CARGO’s 100% natural PlantLove™ Collection will be available in CVS Beauty 360 stores and on beginning on April 8, and is eco-friendly in product, process and packaging! PlantLove™ is also the only prestige brand to be labeled ECOCERT™, the highest eco-distinction.

Lipgloss Break - Cargo Timestrip Lip Glosses

Did you know that lip gloss, like food, has an expiration date? Once opened and used, bacteria is introduced to your gloss. Consequently, the product should be replaced nine months after opening.

Beauty innovator CARGO Cosmetics introduces glosses in packaging that incorporates cutting-edge Timestrip® technology. Timestrip® is a tiny strip embedded in the cap of the gloss. It keeps track of how long your lip gloss has been open.

This “best-before” date has become so important that European countries recently launched legislation requiring cosmetics companies to have a PAO (Period After Opening) time frame listed on their products.

But how are you to remember when you first opened the product? Most women have multiple glosses in multiple locations: purses, bathrooms, offices. It is almost impossible to know when each gloss was used for the first time.

Enter CARGO’s Timestrip® technology. Simply insert the strip into the cap of the gloss to activate. The Timestrip® window will start turning red, indicating the passage of time. When the nine months are over and the entire window is red, you know it is time to throw out your gloss.

CARGO Founder Hana Zalzal explains, “We are proud to be the first to offer this technology. Women can now be assured that their gloss is fresh and effective.”

CARGO Timestrip® Lip Glosses will be available spring 2009 .

CARGO Classic Lip Gloss ($22)

The same classic CARGO Lip Gloss formulation favored by make-up artists and celebrities is now packaged with a convenient Timestrip® component so you can monitor its freshness. What’s more, the iconic, award-winning and non-sticky CARGO Classic Lip Gloss formula is now paraben-free.

CARGO Classic Lip Gloss

Available in eight gorgeous colors:

  • DusseldorfShimmering Iced Amethyst
  • Venice - Sparkling Ruby
  • Alexandria - Shimmering Dusty Rose
  • Tobago - Tropical Melon
  • Big Sur - Deep Begonia
  • Cyprus - Sheer Electric Strawberry
  • Whistler - Delicate Peach
  • Luxor - Spiced Cinnamon Latte

I tried this gloss out in Whistler and really liked it. It's a soft peach with just the right amount of sparkle/shine to it. It looks great by itself or over a nude lipstick. I opened it exactly one month ago and the timestrip is accurately keeping track!
