Cargo – The Safari Kit

July 13, 2011 at 11:17 pm | Posted in Beauty | 3 Comments

I bought this kit during one of’s 20% sales some time ago. The whole concept behind the Voyages collection from Cargo was pretty attractive to me, as I’ve got a fair bit of wanderlust in me =P

I’m quite a fan of Cargo products, especially their blushes, so I had my eye on this kit for some time before caving in.

I absolutely love the postcard-inspired makeup pouch that holds the products. It has a certain vintage feel to it that I really like. The zipper comes with a cute little swallow charm that adds a little kitschy-ness to the whole package. Awesome =)

In keeping with the safari theme, the back (or front) of the pouch is similarly printed. I love the little touches like the postmark from Kenya, Africa. It’s all in the details!

The kit itself comes with 5 Cargo products, a mini 3 Triple Action Mascara, a full-size khaki eye lining pencil, a mini lip gloss (Serengeti), a full size eyeshadow duo (a gold and khkai combo), and a full-size BeachBlush (Coral Beach). Well-worth the price indeed!

Serengeti lip gloss is a strawberry coral shade with microglitter for added shine.

Eyeliner pencil in Khaki is a olive-brown with green undertones. Fits nicely with the safari theme =)

This gold and khaki duo really caught the attention of my neutral-loving heart. Cargo eyeshadows are smooth and silky, and this is no exception. The very handy size makes it perfect for travel!

I actually already own a Coral Beach in my extensive stash (lol..), but I couldn’t resist getting the entire kit, and now I’m in love with Coral Beach all over again. I’m debating if I should sell away my older pre-loved Coral Beach to someone who would like to give this baby a try. If anyone’s interested, let me know =)

Overall this kit is extremely value-for-money and I think I spot a summer Mediterranean kit that I need =P
