CARGO's Pro Picks Collection is like having your own personal professional amkeupartist in your makeupbag. With it, you'll use the same CARGO products favored by top artists on Hollywood sets and high fashion runways.
The kit, an $84 value, is found exclusively at Ulta and may be purchased for $39. Here's what you get:
- Color Eye Palette in Los Angeles: The quad encourages play and experimentation! The newest additional to the CARGO Color Palette family contains four vibrant professional-quality eyeshadows in a combination of opalescent turquise, amethyst, aqua green and cream. They may be layered, mixed and blended for countless combinations of looks. What I love about this quad is it gives you the hot shades of the moment. That amethyst (mixed with the others for variety) is definitely a Spring "Yes!" and the gorgeous opalescent turquoise makes a perfect eyeliner when used wet for deeper pigmentation. The turquoise as an eyeliner is THE spring/summer "Do!"
- Blu_Ray Mascara: High definition lashes for real life, though it was created for high definition filming to provide flawless results. The mascara features a special comb that lengthens, curls and defines.
- Reverse Lip Liner: This is a makeup artist's and a beauty addict's best friend for fabulous lip definition. Line the outer edges of lips with this flesh-toned liner. The result: added definition, reduced feathering, locks lip color in place and gives the look of plumper lips.
- Classic Lipgloss in Tobago: A soft, nudish baby pink gloss features CARGO’s famous, award-winning, non-sticky formulation in a handy tube and wand applicator with built-in Timestrip® technology to show you when your gloss needs to be replaced. The silky texture is both hydrating and nourishing for lips and the Tobago shade is a fave of professional MUA's.

Be the Change You Want to See in the World
CARGO Cosmetics has announced an expanded partnership with one-stop, upscale cosmetics shop CVS Beauty 360. On April 8th, CARGO’s revolutionary, 100% natural PlantLove™ Collection was made available in CVS Beauty 360 stores nationwide.
CARGO Founder and President Hana Zalzal comments, “The timing couldn’t be better to partner with such an inventive retailer. Beauty 360’s goal of creating a convenient way to shop for all beauty products is entirely consistent with our philosophy of making make-up better, smarter and easier for the consumer. Together, CARGO and Beauty 360™ will offer high-quality, professional-grade cosmetics that are accessible to every woman. We are excited to expand CARGO’s relationship with CVS Beauty 360 as our newest PlantLove™ retail partner.”
We've talked with you about CARGO Cosmetics’ PlantLove™ Collection before, but here are the highlights:
Always innovating, CARGO Cosmetics introduced PlantLove™ by creating the first-ever environmentally friendly lipstick. Even the packaging, a compostable tube made entirely from corn, is “green.” In response to the overwhelming success of the lipstick, CARGO launched a full PlantLove™ Collection, the only prestige brand to be given ECOCERT™, the highest eco-distinction. This global designation ensures that all product, process and packaging meet the strictest standards for natural, organic and environmentally friendly content.
Can make-up truly be good for you? All products in the PlantLove™ line are free of parabens, phthalates, petro-chemicals, synthetic dyes and fragrances. The cosmetics are only manufactured in countries with solid environmental and labor records. This means that PlantLove™ is entirely in harmony with Mother Earth.
Hana Zalzal added “For us, PlantLove™ has always been more than a product, it’s a movement. As Mahatma Ghandi said, ‘Be the change you want to see in the world.’ We believe that small actions taken by large groups can change this world.”
Now, last but certainly not least ...
On Sunday, April 11th, CARGO International Make-Up Artist Renée Ryan will be featured on QVC highlighting the very best CARGO products and sharing her famous “tips and tricks.” Here’s a sneak peak at just one of the amazing products she’ll be featuring:
Water Resistant Bronzer
Turn up the heat this summer with CARGO’S Water Resistant Bronzer! Water Resistant Bronzer arrives in the fabulous and universally-popular Medium shade that CARGO fans know and love. Plus, a unique blend of ingredients including mica and powdered silicone provide the ultimate staying power. So, beach bums and poolside divas alike can relax and know that beautiful, bronze glow won’t go anywhere.
Renee’s exclusive tip: Use Water Resistant Bronzer the way you would any bronzer you love. Simply brush it on above the brow bone, under the cheek bone and along the jaw line. Basically trace an ‘E’ and a ‘3’ on either side of your face. I also love to add a little bronzer to the neck, chest and shoulder area for the perfect summer glow.
So, be sure to tune into QVC tomorrow, Sunday, April 11 at 7:00 PM Eastern time to learn more about CARGO and catch more of International Make-Up Artist Renée Ryan's professional makeup tips!
