Today I’m back with another blush review, this time from Cargo. I’d seen these blushes on foreign blogs 2yrs back and as a blush lover they never quite exited by brain. So when i had the opportunity last year, I decided to snap one of these and give it a try. Since I’m enamored with brighter shades, I picked the shade called Key Largo.
About Cargo Blushes
“Second to none” is how famed makeup artist Jackie Gideon describes our blushes. Jackie’s favorite shade is Catalina, while celebrity artist Sam Fine loves Laguna. With professional formulations and a wide array of colors that range from neutral to vibrant, our blushes have earned their place on sets of film and television and have become must-haves in makeup kits everywhere.
- Price: $29
- Packaging: These blushes come in a large tin packaging with a similar lid which has to be twisted off. It doesn’t come with a mirror or a brush. Considering this, the packaging seems kinda large, doesn’t it?
My experience with Cargo blush in Key Largo
The shade Key Largo is described as ‘tropical punch’….which kinda says nothing at all about the color.. The shade looks like a gorgeous raspberry pink in the pan and on my skin takes on a coral hue as well. It’s a pretty intense shade and must be used cautiously.
The finish looks matte but looks more satiny on my skin. Pigmentation is amazing and just a tiny bit is needed for a single use. It has no shimmers at all which makes it wearable for work as well.
Again, this isn’t a shade for the fainthearted…If you’re just starting out with makeup and blush, this would be a very daring choice for you. Wrt whom it would suit, I’d say every skintone…but it would suit deeper skintones much better.
What I like about Cargo blush in Key Largo:-
- The color is out of this world.
- A must for a blush lover
- Will suit all skintones especially deeper ones
- Pigmentation is really good
- Easy to use
What I don’t like about Cargo blush in Key Largo
- Takes some more effort to blend
- Availability is an issue
