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.
