Product Review: Cargo PlantLove 100% Natural Origin Lipgloss

Reviewer: Cinnamon Kitten

Brand: Cargo
Name: PlantLove 100% Natural Origin Lipgloss
Size: 9 ml / 0.03 fl oz
Price: approximately $20 CAD / $20 USD

Shade Tried: Magnolia

How can you not love this Cargo lipstick? Available in earth-friendly packaging and part of Cargo's amazingly environmentally-friendly PlantLove collection, I was excited to try another Cargo product since I've had nothing but nice things to say about other Cargo products.

"Formulated with natural and organic ingredients that offer a high-shine, non-sticky finish. This gloss cares for your lips with a silky, luscious consistency that smoothes and hydrates. This environmentally friendly product is free of parabens, phalates, petro-chemicals, synthetic dyes, and fragrances, and comes in pretty, floral-inspired shades. The outer carton paper is made of 100% post consumer waste." (from the Sephora web site)

To Purr About:
- lovely, shiny pink shade
- great packaging that's papery, but very sturdy
- slanted sponge tip applicator is easy to use
- not sticky

Claws Out:
- a little more expensive that I would generally pay for a lip gloss
- the shade I tried is very light, but looks darker in the packaging
- has a slightly rubbery, funky smell
- doesn't have a very good staying power

Final Comments:
Although not my favourite lipgloss, this does come in pretty shades and the environmentally-friendly aspect will appeal to many people. The shade I tried was slightly lighter than I prefer, but was very shiny. Although the formula is light and non-sticky, I find that it disappears off my lips quite quickly.
