I bought this for $7 when sephora was discontinuing the line and I love it. It doesn't leave an orange or muddy look on my face. I have nc30 skin and I use it just to warm up my face. It does have shimmer in it but I don't see it when it's on my face. I have been wearing this everyday!

I got this at first as a sample for buying the Cargo foundation, though I ended up hating the foundation I LOVE this bronzer! It's shimmery and doesn't look orange on my face. It give me the glow that my pale pasty skin needs.

best fair bronzer

This bronzer is the ONLY one I will use. The shimmer is subtle and makes my skin look flawless and glowy. The color is totally flattering, it's not dull or muddy or too orange or any of the things that make a bronzer look not so bueno. I have fair skin with slight warm undertones (basically neutral, not super yellow-y or pink-y). As someone that wears SPF 50 daily, I could never live without a bronzer and this one is my HG. I'm getting all warm and cozy just thinking about you, Cargo Bronzer. You're my bestie.

My favourite shimmer bronzer. I have pretty fair skin so alot of the bronzers in the market are pretty obvious on me, I never have been able to get a fake tan because of this very reason.
I use this as a highlighter, a blush and an all over my face when I feel like a bit of a sun kissed look. I always get comments like I look like I just came from a beach holiday when I wear this all over my face.
A little goes a long way and its easy to layer without over doing it.

For reference, I have a light to light/medium skin tone, with acne scaring and uneven skin tone. I generally stay away from blush and bronzer, because it tends to attract attention to my check area. But I really wanted something to gift my skin a fresh look. I bought this at sephora for 14 bucks. Let me tell you it makes my skin look like a sun kissed godess! There is a hint of glitter, but even in the sun, it's hardly noticeable. I wouldn't consider this a bronzer or a highlight. And for me it's just what I was after. I would say though if you have a complexion that is even medium, this will probably not show up.

This product is what I hoped the NARS orgasm/laguna combo would be. I'll admit I'm not much of a bronzer person. This is the only bronzer I've ever felt comfortable wearing, where I didn't feel like I looked like a brown streaked makeup victim. Even when SA's would put bronzer on me in Sephora I felt that the look wasn't "I'm tan and went on vacation" but was more "LOOK! I have brown powder swiped in lines all over my face." Just... yeech. Anyway, this is soft, peachy, gorgeous, slight shimmer. I feel it makes me glow. I put it right under my cheekbones as well and it adds a slight contour. Love it. I'm fair with light brown hair and freckles.

Let me start by saying that I love the packaging. I'm a sucker for cute packaging and this won me over. The bronzer is amazing as well. It didn't look like there was dirt on my face like most bronzers do to me. It had a really nice peachy bronzy glow to it. Cargo is the one brand I would recommmend everyone buying their bronzers from. Thumps up Cargo.

This does not give you a deep brown, just-got-back-from-St. Maarten's tanned look, but it does make my skin glow more and have a bit more color. I am quite pale, pretty much the palest shade in any brand, and this doesn't look the least bit unnatural on me. It's not orange and it doesn't oxidize into orange, so that's a huge plus. The other thing that I love is that it's not chock-full of sparkles. For some reason, a lot of lines with bronzers inject them with full-on glitter, and you end up looking like a disco ball. If the bronzer is not top-notch, you become an orange disco ball. This is not a classy look. While the Cargo bronzer may not be truly matte, the shimmer is so fine and sparse that the glow is extremely subtle. I have a feeling that this will last forever, too. A ton of product in the pan.
On a side note, when I tried contouring with this, it seemed almost too light and natural. Go for something a bit deeper.

This is, by far, my favourite bronzer that I have ever used. I am pretty fair, NC 15, and usually bronzers look orange or dirty on me, but not with this Cargo bronzer. This gives me a lightly tanned glowy look. I have been using it every day since I picked it up at Sephora and there's a lot of product in the container. This will likely last me for a few summers, but if/when I run out I will definately buy this again!

As far as bronzers go, this is probably the only bronzer I have that has been used plenty of times. I find that it's a nice shade, not too orangey (for my complexion). I'm not really into bronzers and I don't use it very often so I don't believe I would need this product again but if I were to ever need a bronzer I would definately get this one.

I haven't tried had a bunch of bronzers before, just a cheap Target one and the Medium matte by Cargo, but this one makes me quite glad I waited, trying and researching them all. Yesterday I went into Sephora and was like, okay, this is it, I'm going to find it, and although I really expected to prefer the Sunset Beach bronzer-blush, which is so pretty looking, it was too glimmery on me and blended poorly. This one on the other hand worked better than the Too Faced ones, which weren't so finely milled, and the Tarte Park Avenue Princess, which has such cute packaging. For reference, I'm very pale, and pink-blue toned. Pale skin usually works quite well for me, which is why I've subsisted without a bronzer for so long. I like blush, and the reviews say that is works a lot like a blush, which I find true. It's a glowing tawny blush, though, and I prefer to use it with a standard blush for a great everyday look. HG!
Ohh, dear. Never mind. I can't wear bronzer, it looks dirty on me, not nice and tanned, at least most of the time. I'm an ivory-pink kind of girl, for reference. I'm annoyed. This was really the best bronzer I'm going to find. So that's it. I'm doing something else with this and finding a pretty blush, darn it.
Edit 2: You have to put this on properly- use a good brush and tap it off before you apply it to your cheeks, for very pale girls like me. If you do, you will be well on the way to a gorgeous summery look.

I just bought Cargo's bronzer in Light. I had a sample of the Medium that I had received from a fellow MUA swapper and I liked the consistency and the glow it showed on my skin. I do like the color of this bronzer, however, I find it's too shimmery on my cheeks and accentuates my pores and fine lines. It actually reminds me of a MAC MSF. Color is nice and it does look very nice on my fair NW15 skin. Not too tan. Just healthy. I wouldn't buy it again because it's too shimmery and shimmer does not look like a real tan.
Tarte Bronze Goddess looks exactly like a real tan and this is my HG bronzer. Cargo is more like a shimmery tan MSF.

I never believed in bronzer before. My mom had given me:
LM Matte Bronzer in light-- didn't make me look bronze, just made my complexion look chalky/dry.
NARS Laguna--made me look dirty no matter how lightly I applied.
Milani shimmery bronzer (don't remember which one)-- I don't like shimmer since I prefer a matte look.
Anyway a Sephora SA tried this on me. She put it on only one side of my face and had me look in the mirror. I was shocked. I looked positively glowing. I wasn't shimmery, dirty, or chalky. I'm on the pale side (I wear LM "Real Sand" MMU), and have issues with splotchyness, mild rosacea on either side of my nose, and dark acne spots that take a while to fade. This bronzer was more of a peachy blush with golden undertones, but perfect on my skin. I usually wear a light dusting of this on my outer cheeks and blend towards the rest of my face then add a little bit of Blush (Nars Orgasm or the blush from the Stila Guinevere palette).
I will definitely buy this again. Cargo converted me to a bronzer believer.

I always thought that I was too pale to wear bronzer. Many of them on the market look too orange, too muddy, or too frosty. What I love about this Cargo bronzer is that it has very little shimmer, which lends itself to a more natural look. The color is also wonderful. It gives a warm, healthy glow. Of course, if you are pale, you'll want to use a light hand. I use this on my cheekbones, and then dust a pop of pink or peach on the apples of my cheeks. Very nice.

Im very fair skined and this light bronzer adds some glow to my face its not over powering at all. I do a light dusting on forehead nose cheeks and chin. Where the sun would hit. Now this is not as dark as in the tin very light on.

Love this bronzer! I am a NC30 and I use this as a blush to add some colour to my face. It doesn't make me looked tanned, but it gives me a warm and healthy glow, which is just what I wanted. If I wanted to look like I had gone on vacation, then I would have opted for the medium shade. In any case, this is an amazing bronzer. Not too shimmery and easy to apply. Very pleased!

This is the first bronzer I've used and I'll probably stick with this brand. I don't have to use a lot, which makes me feel better about the price. I've had it for over 3 months now and have barely made a dent in it. I notice that if I use too much of it, I seem to have a more orange complexion with my skin tone, so I find it's best for me to use *just enough* during the day. If I'm out at night in darker places like bars and restaurants then I can add a bit more and it looks like it does during the day in the darkness.
I'm extremely happy with it. It's worth the price for the amount that you get and how you can stretch it out if you have a skin tone like me.

Looks very natural, not too sparkly. Blends in very well with my skintone and does not appear cakey or dull like most bronzers do on me.

This is my first bronzer ever, also my first Cargo product. I was looking for a natural finish, and it indeed served its purpose. It has golden shimmer, but on my Asian, it looks glowy rather than shimmery.
