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
    • 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
  • 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.
