Cargo Cosmetics Official UK Launch

On Thursday evening I was invited to the launch of the first 'Cargo Cosmetics' counter in the UK.  This is very exciting - Aberdeen aren't normally first in any thing (well maybe 30 years ago! ⚽).  

For those of you who, like me, were/are unfamiliar with Cargo Cosmetics here is some back ground information:  
'In 1996, CARGO founder Hana Zalzal set out to create a professional color cosmetic line that top makeup artists would covet, yet would be easy enough for all women to enjoy. Working with some of the most talented makeup artists in the business, CARGO launched a multitude of award-winning products, never-before-seen packaging, and groundbreaking formulas. It wasn't long before CARGO became the one to watch and garnered recognition from around the globe as the most creative and innovative brand on the beauty scene today.'
Cargo Cosmetics are readily available in the States but left the UK some time ago, thankfully they have returned with an astounding range of beautiful makeup.  They cater for everyone, top quality and reasonably priced.  Cargo's most expensive product is their 'Magic Brush'  for I think they said £24.  It is a multi task brush and it is brilliant. 

They are well known for their water resistant blushers and bronzers - absolutely nothing shifts these babies.   However, the range of lipgloss colours and eyeshadow palettes are impressive.

Only £7.50 for a lip gloss!

I love the fact that their foundation packaging reminds me of a Capri Sun!

We spent the evening eating cupcakes and getting a Cargo make over. I was really pleased with mine, the girl who did my make up is called Shazida and she is very talented.  Shazida is the counter manager for Cargo in Debenhams, Aberdeen so pop in and say hello, and ask to try out the products.  They are all extremely friendly.  

couldn't stop giggling at the girls taking photos of me.

This is Rachel, isn't she stunning.

I think the best part of the evening though was getting to spend time with fellow bloggers, for a long while I thought I was the only Aberdeen Blogger - i'm so glad that this thought was remedied when the lovely Laura from Liparazzi got in touch with me and asked me to join 'North East Blogger Events' .  I have had so much fun meeting the girls.  

Let me introduce you.

It was a really great evening.  At the end we were given some amazing Cargo Goodie bags - I almost feel off my seat when I opened mine - 

But of course I wouldn't be me without splurging a bit myself.  I bought some Cargo goodies too which I will be reviewing shortly so keep your eyes peeled. 

I am going to display a widget on my side bar introducing you to all the 'North Easties', so please take a second while having your coffee to nip over and check them out.  There are so many girls to mention in this post so if I keep them all in the one place, it will be so much easier for you to find.  

Aberdeen were the first to Launch Cargo and if you don't have a counter near you, you can buy the products online at Debenhams now.  I believe they are launching in the flagship store on Oxford Street this week which is very exciting.  

Have you tried Cargo yet?

  PS - sorry for this really long post, I had more photies than I originally thought - chuckle..
