All make up is not created equal when it comes to summer heat.  I’m sure you’ve experienced that summer melt down yourself.  I know these past few weeks have certainly been challenging.  The melted make up look is not one that’s overly attractive for anyone. These melt free make up and frizz free hair products will help keep your look put this summer.

Cargo Lip Gloss in Madrid

I received both the lip gloss and eye liner from Cargo Cosmetics to test. The lip gloss that I received were Madrid (top), Belgium and Vienna.  Madrid and Belgium are very close in color except that Madrid is slightly darker. Vienna is a fun bright pink color.

I’m really in love with these new CARGO products. They stood up so well in the hot weather.  The lip gloss is amazing. It gives a fantastic gloss with a hint of color and doesn’t leave your lips feeling sticky at all. You can see me wearing Madrid below which I think is the best shade for me.

  1. I’ve not used any of these products before but like that you can get them at Ulta. That gloss color looks great. I threw out all my lipsticks and never looked back. I tend to try the ones I get for free, lol. Allure (magazine) has sent me some winners. I should try the new Cargo line–I love them here.

  2. I’ve never tried these products before, haven’t tried many Cargo products. 

  3. I love the bright pink gloss color! I would totally wear that in the summer

  4. Nothing is worse then when your makeup just slides right off your face from the sun…these picks look perfect! Dry shampoo is a lifesaver.

  5. These sound wonderful and you look amazing in them!

  6. Wow that eyeliner looks rather interesting! <3

  7. Robin Wilson says

    I am not familiar with any of these brands. I swear I haven’t been hiding under a rock! LOL! I really would like to try the eyeliner. That and I need to find a way to keep my foundation and blush from sweating off my face in this heat! Ugh!

  8. This is my first time ever hearing of these products.  The look you created is beautiful, though!

  9. What a lovely natural look! I have a few things from Cargo and it is an awesome brand.

  10. I haven’t tried any of Cargos or Oscar Blandi’s products yet. These looks like some great products for summertime beauty! 

  11. Love the Cargo glosses!
