Cargo Blush in Key Largo Review, FOTD


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.

  • 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.

I found blending this a bit difficult did take some effort..It’s not rock hard or anything but take an extra minute to blend out. It has no fallout whatsoever.cargo key largo blush review

Staying power is commendable as well. It stays on me for about 7hours but by then I did note some fading around the edges.cargo key largo blush swatches

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.

Here is how it looks on my NC 25/30 skintone. I’ve applied it lightly like I would for work and outings.cargo key largo blush fotd
