With many makeup brands on the market, it can be hard to find one that not only suits your skin type, but continues to push the boundaries when it comes to innovative and fresh products. Established in 1996 and still going strong, Cargo is one of those makeup companies which continues to introduce products to the market which quickly become favourites of makeup lovers around the world.

While this makeup line is favoured by many makeup artists around the world, it doesn’t come with the price tag usually associated with professional products, meaning now everyone can access products which will give them an expert makeup finish without the expensive pricetag. For the first time in Australia, we now have access to Cargo Cosmetics through Kit Cosmetics. The range officially launched this month which means there is no excuse to get some of Cargo’s award winning products into your makeup bag.

Our must-have picks are:

Essential Lip Colour (Napa and Dubai): Cargo Essential Lip Colours are famous for their rich formula which doesn’t budge so you can be rest assured that whether you are wearing it during the day, or out at night for a special occasion, it won’t end up on your teeth or smeared all over your face. Unlike other lipsticks on the market, Cargo’s Essential Lip Colours don’t dry your lips out. Ingredients such as olive oil, shea butter and jojoba oil keep your lips moisturised while plumping peptides give your lips instant fullness. For those you love a dark redy-purple, Napa is the colour for you. This rich wine coloured lippie is great for the upcoming Autumn/Winter season. It has a vampy appeal which will complete any outfit. For something a little more conservative, try Dubai, which is a burnt nude colour. This works perfectly with a dramatic smokey eye.

ColourStick (Champagne): One of the hardest working products in the Cargo range, this ColourStick is must for any makeup bag. The oil-free formula can be used on the eyes, cheeks and lips. Its velvety texture means it can blend seamlessly into your skin, but its unique cream-to-power formula means it won’t set into fine lines and will be long-lasting. Its multi-purpose usability means it makes the perfect travel companion.

You can purchase Cargo makeup products in store and online at Kit Cosmetics.
