Cargo launched a few new colors of their Gel Lip Colors ($20; shop;nordstrom.com; press sample) as a limited edition launch this summer. These are hydrating lipsticks in a gel-cream formula that are extremely comfortable to wear. The pigmentation is really nice, buildable and the colors are my kind of neutrals.
I tried out two of four colors from the range - Brookyln, a peachy brown nude and Chelsea, a plum pink, both in a cream, shimmer-free formula. The packaging is nice and weightless and the colors are quite flattering on their own with just a little bit of shine that keeps them natural looking. The formula can cling onto dryness if any, so if you have very dry lips, be sure to apply some lip balm. There’s also no strong scent or taste and the lipsticks last a good 3-4 hours before completely fading. If you like a classic creme lipstick in a lightweight, moisturizing formula, you’ll love the Gel Lip Colors by Cargo!
