Starter Kit By Cargo – Unboxing


cargo sarter kit

Hi Everyone! Hope you guys are doing great! Today, I’m going to share my unboxing of this Starter Kit from Cargo Cosmetics which I got recently from Winners. I’m so excited to do this unboxing with you guys.

Cargo is another proud Canadian brand with catchy motto “Be-you-tiful” and the well known eco-friendly Plant Love line.

4 in 1 starter kit cargo

Okay, it’s stated here on the box that the suggested retail price is $39.00 but I paid $24.99 for this Starter Kit. The shade I got is in Medium and I believe there is another color option.

In this kit you’ll find a travel size TexasLash Mascara, travel size One Base Concealer, a full size Bronzer and a Swimmables Eyeliner Pencil. I’ll do a full reviews on these products once I’ve tried them thoroughly. Don’t forget to check back 🙂

cargo eyeliner

First up is this ultra creamy, extreme wear, waterproof eyeliner with the feel of a liquid and versatility of a pencil. It claims to locks comfortably into place for up to 14 hours. The texture is creamy and it glides on effortlessly to create a variety of looks. I’m so excited to try this bad boy out. The eyeliner is packed with concentrated pigments and it provides rich colour payoff. Since, we’re already feeling the summer heat, this Swimmables Eyeliner Pencil will stays put through sun, sweat, swim and tears.

The shade I got is in  Black Sea with a net wt: 0.04 oz . It’s available in 6 beautiful shades for $18.00 when sold separately at Cargo Cosmetics website.

cargo bonzer

I love metal tin packaging and this Bronzer look so adorable. It comes in a huge pan and the formula is silky smooth. I got this in Medium but also available in Dark and Matte Medium for $29.00 online. Net wt: 0.31 oz

This bronzer has some light shimmer which gives a healthy looking finish without looking orange. The texture when you touch the pan is hard but it picks up the formula amazingly. I think the reason why the texture is hard is due to the manner the way it was packaged to avoid breaking. It’s very pigmented and it blends so well. A little goes a long way and the color payoff is incredible.

mascara cargo

Cargo TexasLash Mascara in Black for $20.00 a tube. I love this formula for it makes my lashes look more volume and longer without feeling smudgy or clumpy. I don’t feel any eye irritation using this mascara which I sometimes get with other brands. Image on the left is without mascara for comparison purposes.

The packaging is simple and nice and I’m more surprised to see the huge wand applicator. I noticed that the bristles are very closed to each other and very soft. It works well in holding up my lashes and extended it. Well, you see I don’t have a long and curly lashes like “Bambi” does, but I’m just as content with the appearance from this mascara on the right picture.

one base foundation cargo

Final product in the starter kit is the One Base Concealer + Foundation in One by Cargo in the shade 02. I got mine in a travel size 0.17oz but the regular size is net wt: 0.6 oz for $28.00. It comes in 7 pretty shades from Very Fair to Dark with neutral undertone.

I’ve always wished to wear a concealer with foundation in one application and this One Base seems to be the answer to my wish. I don’t usually put foundation all over my face except with BB cream but this concealer + foundation is really marvellous. I can’t stop myself from trying it the second I pulled out the doe wand applicator. Which I did and here is what I think on my first impression. It’s time saving and it gets its job done in a second. All I did is just make a few swoosh under my eyes and on the area which I need covering and I just pat them in. It blend and absorb so nicely. I’m really impressed! I can feel that the texture is really really nice and it’s smooth and so lightweight. It feels like not wearing any products at all on my skin. It gives a very natural looking finish which is not too shimmery or glossy. I just love it. Love it!

There are four products for me to play with. However, they have been quiet lately, I haven’t heard any new product announcement from them but I’m hoping for more new collection in the near future. Cargo products is in the mid-range of cost as well.

Overall, I’m super happy with this Starter Kit. There are some products above which I’ve briefly reviewed and some that I wanted to try out more before giving my final thoughts and opinion. I hope you like and find this unboxing helpful.

Which of the beauty item from Cargo that you have in your makeup collection?

Thank you so very much for taking the time to read.

  1. I received a sample pf the Cargo blush tin from a subscription box. I didn’t know it was Canadian based. It is a lovely product and your box looks like it was a good deal.

  3. What a great deal! I too love the metal tins of the Cargo packaging – some people find them difficult to open but I’ve not had any issues. I’ve used all of the items in this kit except for the liner – they’re all quite good, this is a great introduction to the brand Cargo.

  4. I had no idea that Cargo was a Canadian brand. Ulta in the US used to carry Cargo in stores but they seem to have stopped and Cargo is a bit harder to find than it used to be. Love your starter kit! I need some more Cargo in my life
