Look Good, Feel Good, Do Good

CARGO's new lipstick, PlantLove Botanical Lipstick, is lovely in so many ways.

First of all, the lipstick itself is this really amazing, high-quality lipstick with an emollient-rich, smooth lip balm built in. Rarely do you find a such a nice, treatment-based lipstick with pigment this dense, but the masters at CARGO managed to pull it off. The finish is low-luster, almost-matte but with amazing softness and conditioning. And guess what else? No mineral oil or petroleum-based goo. Just natural butters and plant-based oils to soothe, smooth and beautify your smile.

Next, the packaging--well, it's sorta corny. CARGO PlantLove touts a lipstick tube made completely out of corn (but don't eat it)! And the box is crafted of something called 'flower paper'--you can actually unfold the box, plant it, water it and wild flowers will grow...from the box. I can't get over how cool this is!

Last, the heart of it all. CARGO is donating $2 from the sale of every shade of PlantLove to St. Jude's Childrens Research Center. Wow. Not only is CARGO committing to taking care of our lips, they are also helping the environment...and sowing the seeds of love for our planet's children's future. Amazing. Who knew that one lipstick could do so much? CARGO, that's who!
