CARGO Essential Lip Color & Lip Gloss Review & FOTD

I’m finally feeling like playing in makeup again. I mean, I’ve always loved playing in makeup. I guess what I mean is that I finally feel like posting makeup reviews/looks again.

It’s like a super moisturizing lip treatment with a wash of color. It contains anti-oxidants and oils to treat and prevent chapped lips.
