Cargo Route 66 Lipgloss Review

Hey everyone!
I have yet another lip product review for you today! I know its been a little overkill these past few weeks, but I've just been going through my lip collection and reviewing everything that I haven't already. 

So let's start with the packaging. It's typical plastic packaging, but you are not getting that much product. There is only 0.15 ounces compared to a MAC lipglass that has 0.17 ounces. The applicator is a doe foot, but instead of the typical one, it's elongated and angled. It allows you to easily apply the gloss to your lower lip, but it is a little difficult to get good precision on your upper lip. It also has a sweet scent. I can't really place it, but I would describe it as vanillaish, but not as strong as MAC's scent. 

 Route 66 is a strawberry pink shade with very fine shimmer (almost unnoticeable unless in direct light). It is a very pretty shade, but it is also very sheer. It allows a lot of the natural skin or lip color to show through and isn't going to go on opaque, like a lot of other glosses can. I don't think this is a "stand alone" gloss that will give you decent color without a lipstick underneath it. It is good, if you like sheer to medium coverage. It also has pretty good staying power, but it has a sticky almost tacky texture as well. 

Overall, I think you could get something similar at a drugstore for a lower price, or you can get a better lipgloss from MAC, for around the same price. I will continue to use mine, but I will not be repurchasing because I'd rather get something more opaque than this. If you have this lipgloss or another one from Cargo, leave your thoughts on it in the comments below!
