Simple Pleasures — How About a New Lipstick?

I’ve been hit by our economic  downturn as have most of my friends.  It’s pretty distressing to see savings and investments go down the drain.  Or to lose a job or a home for that matter.  But, do we have to live in a state of deprivation?  Well, I couldn’t get that fall Dior bag I was lusting for, but I sure could get a new lipstick!  That’s the point here.  Simple pleasures.  Small things that lift your spirits.  For me, and millions of other women, it’s a lipstick.  No wonder; lipstick is the number one impulse beauty item purchased. 

I’m have two preferences on lipsticks — in the nude family, with a glossy finish and REDS!  I can’t even begin to count my red lipsticks.  NARS, Chanel and Shu Uemura have been my go-to’s for years for perfect red lipsticks.  Right now I’m on the hunt for a perfect new red for spring.  So I’m thinking some thing bright and cheery.  More of a clear red.  Online shopping brought me to this choices:

Cargo Botanical Lipstick in Maria, a sheer Poppy Cream Red.  Sounds perfect, plus it’s organic and helps out a great charity.


What it is:
A sheer, creamy lipstick formulated with natural and organic ingredients.

What it does:
CARGO PlantLove™ Lipstick provides sheer color that is completely natural and contains a high-organic content. The innovative formula is infused with rich added-care ingredients and is housed in eco-certified packaging. Smooth and silky, it conditions and colors your pout to pucker perfection.

This product is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Synthetic Fragrance
– Synthetic Dye
– Petro-Chemicals
– Phthalates

What else you need to know:
CARGO is donating two dollars from the sale of every shade to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

$20 on a lipstick is surely a simple pleasure.  I haven’t broken the bank or my diet for that matter.  For my guilty pleasure, I’m hitting up Godiva for a truffle right after I pick up my liptick.  I don’t think one truffle will tip the scale…

    You understand! Thank you so much. I have supported myself since I was a teenager and bought any and everything I wanted. Now, I am a full time live in caregiver for my mother. My glamour girl days are gone.
