CARGO has been on the radar for many a beauty junkie. The lip gloss quads are some of my favorites, but the Beach and the Suede Blues are too-die-for. CARGO then decided to do something a little better. The CARGO PlantLove Botanical Lipsticks are friendly to the environment, contains shea butter and seed oil, but not petroleum-based ingredients. The case is made from corn and can be used to plant a seed into the earth. Literally you can plant the box and grow a flower. That is pretty cool. My pick is Majella, a sheer rose plum that works well from spring into summer and on a multitude of skin colors. Plus, here’s my favorite part – $2 of each lipstick benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Last year, the potion lady visited St. Jude’s and we decided to make St. Jude’s a part of our mission of pretty philanthropy. She was so moved that we couldn’t help but make continuous donations. So, plant a little love on your lips, as well as, in your heart by giving to the earth and someone else.
