Cargo Cosmetics ~ Swimmables Collection Review

Oh, how I love the summer months!  There is a lot to love about summer, however, there are a few things that the summer heat does not help with. Anytime we are outside enjoying those summertime activities our makeup tends to either not last due to sweat or water. Thanks to Cargo Cosmetics and their Swimmables cosmetics line, you can wear makeup that will not melt off or come off in the water.

I was thrilled to work with Cargo Cosmetics on a review, especially since I am outside so much during the summer months. It never fails I am either working in the yard, doing some sort of activity with the kids, swimming, and more. Often, within no time my makeup well, looks like I never applied it, to begin with. During my review opportunity, I received several different items from the Swimmables line: Longwear Eyebrow Pencil, Longwear Matte Liquid Lipstick, Water Resistant Blush, and Longwear Foundation. The timing for receiving these items could not have been better, especially with vacation coming up.


Waterproof, sweatproof and weatherproof beauty! Cargo Cosmetics Swimmables Collection offers waterproof blushes, bronzers, eye pencils, eye shadow sticks, brow pencils, lip pencils and liquid lipsticks perfect for summer weather. 

An ultra-fluid, long-wearing foundation that provides buildable coverage for a flawless complexion! The weightless foundation melts perfectly into the skin for a fresh and youthful appearance! Available in 8 shades.


The Swimmables Longwear Foundation I received was the shade 40 warm nude. This shade is perfect for me, especially with it being summer I’m not my typical pale shade like I am in the winter, but I am not overly tanned, simply because my body hits a certain tan shade and stops.

The foundation bottle is glass which is I think is great. The bottle offers a pump for getting the foundation out of the bottle and a nice clear cap that secures to the bottle nicely. I really like that a little goes a long way with this foundation. I am very impressed with how well it blends in and hides my imperfections. Plus, it offers a beautiful finish.

The weather has been in the upper 80’s and mid 90’s so testing it to see how it holds up to sweat and going to the pool with the kids was very easy. The foundation truly does hold up during all those times I have been outside, whereas my everyday foundation didn’t hold up. It was nice being able to see my foundation on my face even after sweating and swimming with the kids. Not having my imperfections come though is such a nice thing. This foundation gives me that, I still look nice feeling. 



Swimmables Water Resistant Blush $26

Cheek color won't streak or fade; it's sweat-proof and weatherproof! Silky powder formula glides over the skin for a subtle wash of color. The sheer powder is buildable for a customized look. Available in 3 shades.


The last item I had the privilege to review was the Swimmables Water Resistant Blush in Los Cabos. The blush comes in this cute tin case that can be reused after the makeup is gone.

The color is very cute, something that I would typically choose and am loving how pretty it is on my tanned skin. The blush blends into my cheekbones with ease and leaves a flawless natural look. As with the other items this blush is one of a kind with it being able to withstand water and sweat. 


Smudge-proof, sweat-proof, water-resistant brows! Slanted tip to achieve your perfect arch Special blend of natural waxes hold brow hairs in place Dries to a powder finish, giving brows a fuller appearance Comb through product with spoolie brush end to mimic the look of natural hairs Available in 3 shades.



The Swimmables Longwear Eyebrow Pencil works amazing. The shade I received was the light however it comes in 3 different shades: light, medium, and dark. The shade I received is perfect for me especially since my natural hair color is blonde, which makes my brows much lighter.

One end is the eyebrow pencil that twists out and the other end is the brush. Each end also offers caps to protect the brush and the pencil. The eyebrow pencil is amazing how it glides onto your eyebrows with ease. It blends in with ease and dries to a powdery finish. Which I really like. My brows look much fuller and have more definition.

I am really surprised at how well this eyebrow pencil withstands sweat and water, especially with it drying into a powdery finish. You don’t have to worry about it making lines down your face after you get wet, it looks as great as when you first put it on. This is such a must-have especially if you prefer to do your eyebrows. 

Ultra matte budge-proof liquid lipstick delivers intense long-wear color! High coverage long-wear formula dries fast and doesn’t smudge! The formula is feather proof and does not settle into fine lines. The lightweight moisturizing texture feels comfortable on your lips. The suede matte finish does not crack or flake on lips. Available in 6 shades.


The Swimmables Longwear Matte Liquid Lipstick offers a clean, smooth and lasting look. I received the Portofino color which to my surprise was beautiful. This is typically to dark of a color for me, I tend to go with a more natural light pink color but was honestly really surprised at how well I liked it.

The lipstick when applied dries super-fast and doesn’t smudge. When wearing the lipstick, it is lightweight and not sticky, which is a huge deal. Ultra-matte budge-proof liquid lipstick delivers intense long-wear color! Just as the other items I have mentioned above it does great at withstanding against getting wet.

All these items from Cargo Cosmetics from their Swimmables line are amazing. They work great withstanding against sweat and water and look great. I couldn’t be happier with the results and adding these items to my beauty must-haves especially during the summer months.
