Cargo Classic Lip Gloss in Tobago – Swatches, Pics, Review

Cargo Classic Lip Gloss in Tobago
I received Cargo Classic Lip Gloss in Tobago in one of my monthly sample subscription boxes. It looks like the Classic Lip Gloss has been reformulated and repackaged and that their new blu_ray Lip Gloss is now packaged in this Time Strip Technology packaging. There is a strip you insert in the end of the cap and it keeps track of how long you have been using your lip gloss. I think it’s kind of silly because I would never throw out a lipgloss after only 9 months if there was nothing wrong with it but it is a neat idea. I found the packaging of this gloss fairly bulky as well.

The colour is lovely. I coral pink with very, very fine gold shimmer. The effect is a sheer wash of colour to slightly brighten your lips. It is completely non sticky and light and because of this not terribly long lasting but very comfortable.

    Expiration strips in your make-up… what a funny idea. I understand not keeping things to the point that they go bad, but I agree that this is a little funny. I’ve certainly never seen it before!

    Neat idea! But like you I wouldn’t throw it out after only 9 months!

    Gorgeous gloss but I’m more intrigued by this expiration tracker thingy. Although I’m completely with you on keeping my glosses longer than 9 months (until they go funky…) it’s certainly a novel idea!
