Serengeti

DSC_0043

Cargo Cosmetics lipgloss (Serengeti) from the December Glossybox*

I had high hopes for this product - it looked so impressive in the tube, a gorgeous peachy hue with a thread of iridescent blue and pink shimmer running through it. On the website it is described as 'tropical melon' so I thought it would be a wonderfully punchy colour on the lips. However, I was left a little bit disheartened.

A very pretty colour nonetheless, but decidedly less bright and colourful than I had imagined. The consistency is very nice though, not too sticky and it does give the lips a really glossy sparkle with a subtle blue/pink duochrome shimmer. For maximum impact I plan to layer this gloss over a bright lipstick such as Barry M 147 (Peachy Pink). I think this combination would be gorgeous together!

I get what you mean about it looking different in the tube-however, it's still a very pretty, girly colour :) xx

I really like the Cargo lipglosses, im not usually a lipgloss person so the subtleness of them is great. I think the shades they have are stunning.

It's quite pretty but you're right... It will look gorgeous over a bright pink or peach lipstick.
