im a big cargo fan.
i didn't want the matte one becz i figured it would look a bit too "dead" on me. went with the shimmer one and i found this to be a tad too shimmery.
the color, all in all, look great when applied correctly. it gives my complexion a bronzed flush with just the slightly hint of color.
i have medium asian skin with olive/yellow undertones.
however, if applied too heavily, you end up with dirty streaks on your face 9as im sure all bronzers, cargo or not, have a tendency of doing.
for the mean time, still searching for that perfect bronzer with just enough shimmery.
Honestly, I really get a glow when I wear this product, I absolutley love it! When I put it on it looks like I got my makeup done from a proffesional and I get a lot of compliments, definitley a HG for me. And the look is so natural it is amazing it is not that shimmery when it goes on my skin.
I recently made a trip to Sephora and, oh jeez, well let's just say I bought one of everything haha. Anyway..I thought I would try this it looked really great in the store, when I brought it home though it looked a little orange in the can but when I put it on that orange didn't show at all. I'm very happy with this product and my oh my it will last me forever too..gives a nice dewy, bronzed look without being over the top. will buy again! (if I ever run out!)
oh p.s. I have very oily and very very fair skin and it still looked great!
Whoa, this is really shimmery. I put it on in my house and thought it looked great, but when I looked in the mirror in my car, I was shocked at how glittery and ridiculous I looked. I applied with a very light hand, but there is just way too much shimmer in this. I will stick with my Nars Laguna.
Got the mini size as a gwp a while ago and I really like it. I use it just on my cheeks as a blush and it looks good with my temporarily suntanned skin tone. No complaints at all especially since it was a freebie:)
If you want a hint of color that is believable, doesn't leave you dirty or orange, and imparts a everso subtle shimmer, this is the bronzer for you. As a make-up artist, I'm constantly reaching for this, and it works beautifully on almost all skin tones. But with the good comes the bad, being that it can break kind of easily if tossed around too much, and you don't get that much. Despite that this a definite staple and winner in my book.
This is a little orangey on me... but it provides a decent glowy blush color. Too light to be a bronzer on me I think, but it's a good highlighter.
I can't believe how much I'm loving this bronzer. Since I started using it I've quit reaching for my Too Faced Snow Bunny which I thought was wonderful. Well this works for me even better than that or my Bobbi Brown shimmerbrick. LOVE IT!!
I just got this, and must say I really like it.Apparently there are two versions out the regular(with some golden shimmer) and matte, I should note that Im picky when it comes to shimmer but its the kind that is soft and glowy . It gives a golden/tan glow- no orange,no brown- its beautiful and I'll see how much this color grows on me, but yay definetely adds color, I know when I tan up a bit this stuff will look even better! yay!
UPDATE: I really love this bronzer! I use this for a low-key natural look. I pair it with mac hug me or deluxe tintstik in "betty",lots of mascara and Tarte TM. That's all I use and I look awake,refresh and sunkissed naturally.
This is a bronzer in a large, round tin metal package without a mirror. Thus,I took off 2 lippies for being inconveneint. I personally prefer the flip top mirrored packaging like MAC since it's less hassle. However, i think I love this bronzer over my beloved MAC bronze bronzer. Side by side, both look identical in shade but when I swiped each on the underside of my wrist, MAC had a more coppery-brown tone while CARGO had a peachy-gold tone. For reference,I'm NC30-35,Filipino,not-tanned and the CARGO gave me a natural,healthy glow. MAC was a little too much for my winter skin I supposed and maybe better used to enhance my skin tone in the suummer when I get darker. Right now, CARGO is my winter-spring time glow. Both however are slightly shimmery and not obvious,both applies nicely and intensity is buildible. I like to wear CARGO with my smashbox designer blush ( apeachy-nude shimmer) to give me a wonderful,healthy natural glow.
