Cargo Cosmetics Spring 2011: Please Mr. Postman

Oh please Mr. Postman bring me a letter from CARGO. The CARGO Voyages Spring 2011 Collection has the cutest travel theme!

The pouches, with the air mail stickers,  remind me of the ‘old days’ before cell phones, texting and facebook when people would actually use paper and pen to write a letter! I had a pen-pal (remember those?) when I was about 10 or 11. He lived in Germany and his name was Lutz Langenhiemer. Our teacher had assigned each of us a foreign pen pal and I was heartbroken when I got a dumb boy. We wrote back and forth for several years and somehow by the time I was 14, that ‘dumb’ boy and remarkably become that ‘cute’ boy. But even then, distance was a problem and by the time I was 15, I opted for someone closer to home. I’m sure Lutz was devastated.

Anywho, the CARGO Voyages Spring 2011 Collectionis flying (hehe) in to stores this month.

The CARGO Voyages Collection includes 4 cute  travel-themed kits—love,love, love the packaging!

  • Voyages Gloss Collection ($32 for five mini glosses)all of the shades are sheer, shiny and non-sticky with normal wear. Available at Ulta, Beauty 360, Sephora inside JC Penney and cargocosmetics.com
    • R toL:  Paris–a pale shimmery pink
    • Las Vegas–a beige nude with sparkles
    • Tokyo–a coral cream (my fav ‘natch)
    • Morocco- a plum berry
    • Serengeti–a nude peach

  • Voyages Water Resistant Collection ($25)A full-size Water Resistant Bronzer and a mini Better-than-Waterproof Mascara (exclusive to Ulta stores)
  • Voyages Safari Collection ($34)this kit contains one full-size eyeshadow duo, blush in Coral Beach and eye pencil in Khaki, and mini versions of CARGO’s lip gloss in Serengeti and Triple Action Mascara. What a great value for all these great CARGO products! If you like warm tones, this kit is for you! I know I will be picking this up at my local Sephora inside JC Penney. It is also available on Cargocosmetics.com
  • Voyages Bronzing Collection ($25)  A bronzer in Medium and a kabuki brush (exclusive to Sephora counters inside JCPenney stores)

     Other travel esseentials in the collection:

    Jet Lag Concealer ($32) - from CARGO: “Combining cutting-edge skin care with a full coverage concealer, CARGO Jet Lag™ works on-the-spot to brighten the eye area. Over time, it helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.”   “The result:  instant gratification and a nourished, repaired eye area in just 28 days – clinically proven!”  I’ve got to say I like this concealer. As you know, I don’t care for click pens, but I’ll forgive CARGO because Jet Lag does a great job of minimizing dark circles and brightening the undereye area. I was sskeptical because the consistency is so thin, but then it doesn’t get cake up on me either and that’s a good thing. Shade 01 is perfect for us fair skinned beauties.

    Cargo Jet Lag Concealer 01

    Also in the collection is Mascara-Mascara! ($20) – a collection of four travel sized best selling CARGO mascaras.

    CARGO makes some of the best bronzers and blushes ever! You didn’t think I would go on a trip and leave you behind, did you beauties? Nevah! Pack your bags and come on a virtual trip with me because one lucky Prime Beauty Reader will win the Voyages Bronzing Collection, (pictured above) a $25 value!

    1. Those have to be the cutest little bags I’ve ever seen and your giveaways rock!!!

      My favorite vacation destination? Playa Del Carmen, Mexico…cruised there…made awesome memories and learned to make shrimp ceviche…Yum!!!

      • OMG that’s my fav too! Stayed in an all inclusive right on the beach–went parasaling, snorkling, to the Tulum ruins–I wanna go back so baaaaaaaaaaad!

    2. Very clever packaging for the makeup.
      I love any destination with turquoise/blue water and white sandy beaches. WeI are lucky to be able to drive to Sandestin, FL for a long weeknd; it is as close to a “tropical’ getaway as we can get without the hassle of a flight!
      OMG…..I had a pen pal too….Jennifer in Austrailia! I remember writing to her on the tissue thin air-mail paper……..ParAvion

    3. I’m not entering the giveaway, but wanted to comment:
      1) the bronzer package is CORRECT – Kaanapali is on Maui!
      2) the Voyages Safari Collection is very tempting
      3) I try to get away to places cooler than Hawaii!
      Good luck to everybody!

    100. Since I haven’t been on a vacation since I was still living at home with my family I would take pretty much anything, but I would really love to go some place quiet, secluded and romantic with my boyfriend where we could spend time relaxing uninterrupted. I’m thinking a beach front cabana in the Caribbean? That sounds perfect.

    101. My fave vacation destination is usually someplace I have never been to before, no matter where it is. There is always more excitement that way!

    103. Holly Cunningham says:

      Depends…. if we’re talking “Bucket list” vacations, I’d have to say Australia & the Great barrier reef! If we’re talking closer to reality, then I’d say a Disney cruise w/our Kids and THEIR kids! ((1955nursehjc4me(at)myway(dot)com))

    107. My favorite vacation destinations depend on my mood and my budget. For something warm and close to home, I stick with the desert. If I just want to chill with nature, I’ll go somewhere in southern Utah. If I want to shop and play around, Las Vegas.
      BUT, if I really want to go places, I’d have to say I love going to Scotland. The sights and people there are just wonderful. (Plus they have such adorable shaggy cows!)
