Whitney Port: CARGO’s Newest Celebrity Lipstick Designer

fp_3431285_port_whitney_cwny_081809.jpg

Whitney Port, star of MTV’s The City, is quickly becoming the style icon of her generation. Model, stylist and clothing designer, Whitney Port is now taking her design career beyond a role at Diane von Furstenberg, to the world of beauty.

New York Post’s Page Six Magazine recently dubbed Ms. Port “The New Carrie Bradshaw” because of her extraordinary style and glamour. Always on the cutting edge, Ms. Port has now partnered with CARGO PlantLove™, the trailblazing prestige beauty brand leading the eco-movement, to design her perfect shade of lipstick. Whitney Port joins the ranks of fellow celebrity lipstick designers Courteney Cox, Evangeline Lilly, Angie Harmon and Denise Richards, to name a few. Each one of these women has partnered with CARGO because of the importance they place on protecting our planet and helping others. Importantly, CARGO will be donating two dollars from the sale of every lipstick to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, the world’s premier pediatric cancer research center.

This fall, Ms. Port’s very own signature shade of hot pink, eco-friendly 100% Natural PlantLove™ lipstick, “Eve Pinky,” will debut. The PlantLove™ line is the only prestige make-up brand to be designated ECOCERT®, a global designation signifying that all product, process and packaging meet the strictest standards for natural, organic and environmentally friendly content. ECOCERT® designated products dramatically reduce their environmental footprint.

The lipstick itself is 100% Natural, made from an infusion of Organic Cocoa Seed Butter, Organic Sunflower Seed Oil and Vitamin E. These ingredients help moisturize lips, fight free radicals and reduce the appearance of fine lines. The lipstick is housed in a tube made of Polylactic Acid (PLA), a polymer made entirely from corn, a renewable and abundant resource. What’s more, PLA production emits less greenhouse gas than traditional plastics.

Hana Zalzal, president and founder of CARGO Cosmetics, explains, “CARGO believes that small actions taken by large groups can make a real impact. The PlantLove™ brand is more than a line of make-up: It represents a movement towards beauty without compromise.” Ms. Zalzal goes on to say, “Whitney Port brings a fresh face to the PlantLove™ movement that will inspire women around the world. We couldn’t be more pleased to work with such a brilliant, young role model.”

PlantLove™ Lipstick in Eve Pinky by Whitney Port retails for $20 and will be available mid-August 2009,
at Sephora stores and Sephora.com.

NEW from CARGO, Lash Activator!

My favorite mascara for the last year or so, has been Covergirl’s Lash Blast.  It’s going to take a pretty amazing mascara to make me switch. I really liked this new mascara from CARGO, but I don’t know if it’s going to win me over.  One thing I really like about this CARGO mascara, was how it made my eyelashes look.  Each eyelash stands out on it’s own, not clumped together with it’s neighbor.  I really liked this a lot – and look forward to seeing what my eyelashes look like after 30 days!

LashActivator by CARGO is a unique primer and/or mascara that is proven to boost the appearance of lashes in just 30 days!

CARGO LashActivator™ contains a nourishing blend of ingredients that has been proven to visibly increase the appearance of lashes’ length and fullness. The formula is made with a unique, multi-faceted complex, which contains Marine Algae extracts to increase the appearance of lash density, citrus-derived Flavonoids to promote microcirculation for optimal lash health, and a Peptide-biotin complex to slow the rate of lash loss. It’s gentle on sensitive eyes and the flexible rubber wand was specifically designed to build and separate each lash for a full, fan-like effect. Finally, a safe and effective way to achieve those gorgeous lashes you’ve always dreamed of!

Does your lipgloss need a Timestrip?

My two cents: I love the lipgloss, I think it’s gorgeous.  But I’m not sure if I’m sold on this whole timestrip thing.  I think it’s a bit hokey – and not really necessary.  Other than that – the gloss is great!

Classic Lip Gloss by CARGO with Timestrip technology!

A non-sticky lip gloss formulation in a handy tube and wand that has built-in Timestrip® technology.

CARGO Classic Gloss features the award-winning, non-sticky formulation in a handy tube and wand that has built-in Timestrip® technology to show you when your gloss needs to be replaced. Its formula is now paraben free and has a silky texture that is hydrating and nourishing for lips.

Timestrip™ is a strip that remembers when a product was first opened and alerts you when it is no longer wise to use it. Simply insert the Timestrip™ into the cap and it is immediately activated. As the months go by the Timestrip™ window gradually turns red and, when the entire window is red, it is time to replace your gloss.
