Finally, a blush that makes sense. These blushes are packaged in oversized tins. Why is big better? The large surface area lets you pick up pigment evenly on a blush brush for a better application. These blushes are moist, sheer powders that glide easily on the skin.
I've been wanting Rome FOREVER. I saw Sam Fine recommend it a lot for WOC. It's a gorgeous orangey peach blush with a nice amount of shimmer.
You can't find Cargo in a lot of places beside Sephora in JCP, Ulta, and Beauty.com
As you'll see on my blog below, I am very impressed with this blush. At first, I thought it was too orange for me, but it settles into a nice, healthy flush on my medium Indian skin. http://www.womensforum.com/getting-cheeky.html
Cargo is one of my FAV blushes ever!!!!! i'm slightly obsessed wit the packaging =D The little tin that it comes in. I'm a lover of their bronzers as well and their HD Lipgloss with the hyaluranic Spheres & their blue ray foundations and powder. OMG i love everything cargo lol
I am in love with CARGO high def blu-ray blush and the sad thing is they don't sell it on sephora anymore and the one I have, they don't sell at all anymore and I DO NOT know why? The best blush I have used and it's so pretty. Just as Sheila Q. said "I don't have much left so I use it sparingly" ^_^
For every woman I love cargo's blushes they are smooth in texture, blend amazingly, and have a stunning color pay off. For any woman of color Laguna blush by CARGO needs to be in you makeup arsenal. This shade of blush adds the natural flush of color to the cheeks of deeper skin tones the same way raisin from Mac adds color to the cheeks. If you don't own it...you need to own it.
You can still get Cargo online!
Sephora may have stopped carrying Cargo products but you can still order directly from their website. http://www.cargocosmetics.com/products//blush
If you don't want to order online, check out this page to find a store near you: http://www.cargocosmetics.com/store-locator.php
Mendocino is sold out on the website individually, but you can still get it as part of the new Mediterranean collection for summer (and the makeup bag is super cute!): http://www.cargocosmetics.com/products/kits/mediterranean-collection
I LOVE this blush! It's a perfect coral color for the summer! It does look super bright and unwearable, but once you find the right (fluffy) blush brush, you're going to be obsessed with it. I've used the blush about 10+ times and it literally still looks new. And yes, all their blushes are super pigmented!! I'm about ready to buy another cargo blush
I was so sad when they discontinued the cargo line at the sephora here. My favorite blush is the shade tonga. It's subtle and soft, great for an every day blush. i don't have much left, so i try to use it sparingly. I love the way my cheeks glow when i use it.
I've tried it in stores and used ones that my friends own, but never been able to afford the tin myself. The colors match skin tones well, lasts a long time, and blends well. It's not overly shiny and has a healthy natural color to it.
I completely agree with Maya! This is a rather pigmented blush, and when you take that into consideration with the size of the container, THEY GIVE YOU A LOT! I honestly think it will take me 10 years+ to finish this...and by then, I should have probably disposed of it..haha.
PS. In the photo it looks SUPER bright and orange, as it did in Sephora. However, in sunlight, it looks more like a bright orangey-coral
