The New Cargo Long-Wearing Lip Glosses: I Found Sheer and Shiny Somewhere Between Fresno, Nassau and Madrid

Wearing Cargo Lip Gloss in Fresno

Sometimes it’s all about the little things, ya know? Having a cookie, spending a Friday night at home with your cat, trying on some lip glosses. It doesn’t take a lot to make me happy. 🙂

Earlier today, as Tabs prepared for his regularly scheduled afternoon nap, I tried on three of the 14 new long-wearing Lip Glosses from Cargo ($14) — creamy pink Fresno (really, Fresno?), shimmery peach Nassau and shimmery berry Madrid.

All three sheer beauties are members of Cargo’s permanent line, and they’re some of the most comfy glosses I’ve worn in a while. They feel a lot like MAC’s non-sticky Plushglasses to me, except without the tingling sensation, and with a faint green apple flavor and scent, instead of MAC’s vanilla.

I think these are great for quick, sheer and shiny lip looks, but I wish they lasted longer than two hours, seeing as how they’re billed as long-wearing.

Eh, with these, I don’t mind having to reapply. Purse gloss status, granted! 🙂

PRICE: $14 each
AVAILABILITY: Available in 14 shades at Ulta stores, and
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+ (I just wish they lasted longer than two hours on me)

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. I hope this was a good week for you and that you get some well-deserved downtime this weekend. See you in a few.

  15. Celleste says:

    Which of the Plushglasses aren’t sticky? I heard they have a nice texture but the one I bought (Big Kiss) is the stickiest thing I own. Are there specific shades that are better?

  16. Veneeta says:

    The picture of you wearing Madrid is stunning. You look so beautiful in that photo, you have a glow and your hair is so nice.
    Great photo!!:)
