Cargo doesn’t get enough love… That’s what I’ve always thought. They’re like an actress who you KNOW deserves top billing in big blockbusters but keeps getting saddled with bit parts in movies that go straight to DVD.
And I swear to Tabs they have my house bugged! It’s like they’re watching me rush in the mornings because so many of their products are designed to save time, like their new Triple Action Mascara ($20, available in a single shade called Black).
New for fall, it’s supposed to do it all, a regular triple threat, able to thicken, lengthen AND curl. Yes, actually curl, or so they claim, like a lash curler.
Is that even possible??
Cargo says it is, thanks to “advanced pigment and styling polymer technology!” — and a special brush.
I’m the type of gal who’ll use multiple mascaras to get a great lash look, but I’m not married to the idea. If a single mascara really could do it all, I’d definitely prefer that (hallelujah!).
I graced my thin, stick-straight, average-length lashes with Triple Action a lot last weekend, and wouldn’t ya know it? My beloved Cargo just didn’t come through (this time).
I like the shade (it’s black; what’s not to like?) and the smooth, lump-free formula, but honestly, that’s about it.
Because Cargo claims it curls, I tried it sans lash curler and only saw the slightest, almost imperceptible change in curl. As for thickness and length, there wasn’t much of those either.
By the end of the days I’d worn Triple Action, my lower lashline was a smudgy mess. I’m talking “please don’t feed the raccoon!” Boo!
Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: I had high hopes for Cargo Triple Action based on past great luck with the brand, but this time I think they’re only average (and comparable to a decent drugstore mascara). Available at Ulta and ulta.com. Grade: C
For kitty Christmas lists…
Thank you, Applepark, for sending me this and for MAKING MY DAY!
I wonder if Tabs will fit into one of these… He’s a little on the girthy side, so it’s hard to say.
Prices vary by playhouse ($19.99-24.99), ha! Yup, I guess tanks do cost a little more than firetrucks. Available at ThinkGeek.com.
