I do not know what made me wait to try Cargo cosmetics, I have a palette from them now, a bronzer, and now finally, this blush (seems this blush was a little popular when it first came out..? I was not so into makeup then..),

I put this right up there with Tarte's amazonian clay blushes in may respects, being this lasts all day on me (hard for me to find a powder blush that lasts on me all day all on it's own, with no 'help'), stays true to color, no skin irritation, no scent (which I love!! If I want to smell roses or chocolate I will buy some!! what is with these cosmetic companies making things 'scented' anymore..? so many of us have sensitive skin..ah is those companies' losses!!), and my goodnes,, also like Tarte, this is going to last me A LONG TIME!! And like the Tarte blushes, this container can be a pain to open. IMHO a more pricey blush should be easy to open. I know this is not high-end like Dior or anything, but still..Not really a fan of the packaging..but to me, performance matters more than a pretty compact that hardly anybody (in my world) will ever see!!

Yes, I would re-purchase this if I lost this. It just gives me a lovely natural, healthy, lit from within glow. I also think this would be more suited for light/medium and medium skin tones. Very fair gals could probably wear this, but I recommend using a light hand to start with!! Tends to be very pigmented, so a little goes a long way!!

I give this 4 lippies coz I tried it in its own first on top of foundation & by noon it was nowhere to be seen.. but when I did foundation + clinique up-lighting liquid illuminator in Blush & topped it with this, i found my holy grail! & it was still there even after the whole day + tons of sweat in the gym at night (a total of 12 hours!) I just did the suggestion of some other reviewers here to put the blush on top of my foundation & BEFORE the setting powder. Also, I add a little more of the stuff so it ends up perfectly just the right amount the rest of the day. I have very oily skin & this is the only way that works for me.

Good blush that creates a sunkissed healthy glow. Makes me look like I've been in the sun the day before. I have very pale skin and gives a believable peachy pink glow that doesn't look orange or like gross bronzer. It has a subtle illuminator (not glittery or with too much highlight). Another reviewer called this a "satin" finish and I think that's a good description. Feels like a much better quality product than I expected. The tin is huge for the price (when compared to bobby brown etc). If your looking for more of a ballerina "pretty" pink I would recommend Becca mineral blush in Gypsy which is a similar product (also very nice on the skin) but a bit more pretty pink for more of a polished look. This cargo blush gives me more of an outdoorsy flush -almost a 'not wearing makeup' look. No strong fragrance. Lasts around 5 hours on my combination/dry skin (not oily). Haven't tried in water/perspiration but seems to last a couple of hours longer than a normal blush. The colour fades back with wear through the day but the illuminator stays making skin look clean and radiant (similar to a primer with illuminator but for your cheeks). Will buy again but with huge tin it might be well in the future.

I am so disappointed with Bali.. :( Being away from home with only online shopping available for cosmetics where I am I situated, I searched and researched for a "nice pink blush". I adore blush and am a huge fan of a subtle rosy coloured blush and thought this would be perfect. The colour is a nice pink, but what made me gasp in horror was the very intense silver eye-popping sheen-I looked so silvery. It is very noticeable; the sheen doesn't seem to blend with the colour (?!). I literally gasped when I gave it another go today and looked in the mirror a few hours later-having already put a bit of powder over it AND another matte blush to try to even out the colour. My favourite blushes are Dior's Glowing Colour powder blushes, so I am not against a subtle glow, but this was too scary for me.
Thankfully I only paid 13 euros for it on Strawberrynet (the small size) and got a whole other full size cargo products with. Oh well.

I've had this blush for about six months, use it quite a bit and there doesn't even seem to be a dent in it. Lots of product in a straightforward tin (like a mint tin) and the color is as close to no-fail as you can get. I tend to overdo it with the blush but this one satisfies my love of bright rosy cheeks without embarrassing me on the street. I apply it with a good brush but a heavy hand and it's always perfect. A natural rosy flush with an absolutely beautiful sheen that keeps it from being chalky and also gives the glow of a luminizer. I really cannot recommend this enough. I think I spelled luminizer wrong. Or maybe it's not a real word. Aaanyway...this blush is an HG fo' shizz.

I was lucky enough to get this on clearance at Ulta. I have NW13 skin, but red hair and green eyes, so slightly warmer toned blush looks best on me. I absolutely love this blush. It looks very natural and goes on easily without being too dark/pigmented.

I received this in a subscription box and I really love this blush. It's a semi-sheer pinky peach that has a beautiful sheen. It's very smooth and blendable. I like to wear this in the summer time with a coral lip. It gives a very fresh look and is perfect for perking up my skin.

Love, love this blush. This came in my birchbox and I am absolutely thrilled with it. Perfect color for my skin tone. Stays put all day. I put this on with a baby kabuki brush. Gives a natural, radiant wash of color. Makes me look alive. Great product!

I love Cargo blushes, so when they came out with the new water-resistant line of blushes, I had to try one. I chose the color Bali, which is a light, soft rosy pink with a hint of beige, and I just love it. It's very natural-looking on my NC15 skin. As with all Cargo blushes that I've tried, the texture is divine. It applies smoothly and gives me a very believable-looking pink flush. As for the finish, it's hard to describe. It's not matte but it's not a shimmer either, so I guess I would call it a satin. It has a beautiful sheen to it that keeps it from looking chalky, like Catalina sometimes can. It's a much softer pink than Catalina but it still shows up on my fair skin. I don't know if it would show up on medium or dark skin tones, but it's sold at Ulta and they have testers, so it might be good to try it out first. I can't speak to the water-resistant claim other than to say it lasts on hot, humid days.
