Review: Cargo Cosmetics Swimmables Matte Liquid Lipstick
Happy Sunday, my loves! I have a new cosmetics brand that I’m so excited to share. Launched in 1966, Cargo Cosmetics is a professional makeup line of innovative and creative products with a nod to the traveling free spirits. As said by the award winning brand, “The journey is just as important as the destination.” Cargo Cosmetics carries a wide variety of makeup products, including a line of matte liquid lipsticks that I have reviewed and swatched for all of you! Without saying too much more, let’s begin the review!
Official Description: Ultra matte budgeproof liquid lipstick delivers intense long wear color! High coverage long-wear formula dries fast and doesn’t smudge! Formula is feather proof and does not settle into fine lines. Lightweight moisturizing texture feels comfortable on lips. Suede matte finish does not crack or flake on lips.

Cruelty Free? Yes!
- High coverage long-wear formula dries fast and doesn’t smudge
- Formula is feather proof and does not settle into fine lines
- Lightweight moisturizing texture feels comfortable on lips.

- Sorrento (fuchsia matte)

- Portofino (red matte)
- Cape Town (dusty pink matte)
- Newport (deep berry matte)
Cape Town is a great daytime shade or even to wear to work. This shade also has cool pink undertones that give the nude hue a little boost of color.
Sorrento was inspired by the Italian seaside town (Sorrento), and is a dark berry hue that is a great shade to wear for a fun night out.
I absolutely loved the formula of these lipsticks. I only needed one coat for the swatches that I did above, and the formula’s creamy texture made it super easy to work with and to blend in. Also, when I went to wash the swatches off of my arm, it took a lot of oil-based makeup remover & cotton balls. So they passed the transfer-proof test! These lipsticks definitely live up to their description that they stay on all day long. So if you’re looking for a lipstick that won’t smudge or come off during dinner or a night out, I would highly recommend these liquid lipsticks. As of now, they only have 6 shades in this particular lipstick line, but I am definitely looking forward to the brand expanding into even more shade varieties since the formula is so awesome and unique from many other liquid lipsticks on the market.
The Cargo Cosmetics Swimmables Matte Liquid Lipsticks are available for $18 (USD) at ULTA.
