I love this blush! I have had it for 5 years and haven't come close to hitting pan. There is barely a dent in it! It is so rich and pigmented that I just need a tiny amount. Make sure to tap off your brush! And it is a very natural flush. I think it's kind of a deep rose colour with a gold undertone. There is a slight shimmer to this but it doesn't look glittery at all. When applied it gives a beautiful flush that lights up my face. The packaging is very durable as it comes in a cute tin. Very easy too use. Lasts all day. Very good value for money because you use such a small amount to get great results! I said I would not repurchase only because I won't need to. Lasts forever!

I love this blush. Love. It. There's a TON of product in here, I've used this for a long time (like, well over a year? everyday!) and just now thinking about buying another one just in case...as a backup....
I'm very fair, brown eyes, reddish brown hair, and it is a rosy glow. The gold doesn't show up a lot on me. It's just a pretty flush color, that lasts a long time! It's my favorite blush ever.

Love this blush, great for fall and winter. cool tone blush, super blendable and brightening on the skin. Price is worth it for 13 grams of product, this will last you forever :)

Mendocino is a beautiful reddish-berry color that really gives off a natural-looking flush that is great for fall/winter. I used this to give someone various stages of an angry-face flush for a videotaped skit and it looked natural both in person and on camera. There is a subtle golden sheen to this that really becomes apparent when this is applied heavy-handed. There is a lot of product in this (8.9g), which is one reason I felt more comfortable using this for the skit rather than my precious NARS Outlaw (4.8g - discontinued) or MAC Merrily (3.5g - limited edition).

I really enjoy this blush. It looks fabulous on my NC 20 skin. I like to pair this with a smokey eye for a look that is beautiful. It is more expensive than a drug store product but you get what you pay for. There is a lot of product and its very high pigment. I don't really care for the packaging, the metal lid is loose and has a tendency to fall off at times. I don't know if it is just my product or if it cargo blushes in general.

I love this shade it's perfect for my skin color and I love the amount of shimmer it has! Not too much but just enough to sparkle! +)

I actually don't like Mendocino. I'm dark-skinned AA, and this blush doesn't have enough pigment for the raspberry color to show up on my cheeks. All I get is intense gold shimmer...that's it. Mendocino is basically a highlighter on me.
For women of my skin tone (Armani LSF #11~Becca Cognac~BB Warm Walnut), I recommend Cargo's Sonoma blush, which is the same color as Mendocino, minus the gold shimmer. Sonoma is HTF, but it's been one of my staples for years, and is my go-to color for rosy cheeks. Rock & Republic Seduce is another good option...it's highly pigmented, and the shimmer is an iridescent pink, so I get a nice pink tone on my cheeks instead of ending up with gold overload.

I love Cargo's packaging. I love the texture and their blush doesn't seem to crumble or flake or break off like alot of blushes do (even high end ones) in the container.
They are a bit more expensive than MAC (around $28) but I will gladly pay the price. I never used to wear blush (goth chick here) but I do realize that blush and highlighter or countour powder can sculpt the face so I've startying trying to incorporate them into my routine.
This is a golden raspberry shade that can be built up without making you look like Bozo the clown. It is shimmery, but not too much glitter that you look like a 12 year old playing in your big sisters makeup.
On my NC20 skin, a few stokes gives me a light, warm raspberry glow. This may not be a very unique shade, but I do like it.

I hemmed and hawed about buying this for years. Based on the reviews I wasn't sure it would work for me. I have fair-ish skin and am not a fan of having glittery cheeks.
I finally went for it when Sephora was selling out their Cargo stock and it was half-price.
While I *do* have to use a light hand when applying this, I don't find it to be too dark or bright nor particularly shimmery. On me, it's a deep rose that adds a nice pop to the cheeks. Very pretty though not particularly "unusual" - I've had a lot of blushes that look similar over the years.
EDIT: As much as I want to like this blush, it pulls orange on me. I was hoping for a raspberry flush, but it's more of a dusty warm rose. Which is fine, I guess, just not what I'm looking for.

this blush is amazing. its a darkish plummy shimmery color. its beautiful. it comes off as a subtle sheen on your face, no glittery mess. it really livens up my face. i think its more for a night out look rather than for day time because of the dark color and sheen finish. love the packaging too.

Too bad Sephora is going to stop carrying Cargo, however, I know of a few places that are going to now carry the brand...so I'm happy to say that I could repurchase this again if I need to! It is a gorgeous golden raspberry/plummy shade...very pretty and beautiful. It isn't as dark as I thought it would be but none the less, I still like it. You get like double the amount of product compared to other blushes...and it is pretty pigmented and lasts a long time on the skin without retouching. It kinda lasts better than the foundation I wear sometimes....which is a good thing! Would recommend but maybe not to someone very fair as it is probably too much colour.

Just picked this off on sale for half off since it was being discontinued at Sephora. This is a gorgeous plummy color with just the right touch of shimmer. For $12 and the amount you get, it was so worth it...LOVE!

This blush is totally fabulous. I normally wear neutral, brown/peachy coloured blushes but decided it was time for a change. Naturally, I relied on MUA members for advice so I purchased Mendocino and there is no going back. It gives me a wonderful glow with just the right amount of shimmer. I had no adverse reactions and the colour lasted all day. Definitely HG !!

I LOVE LOVE this blush i was telling the girl that was working at cargo that i wanted to try a blush from cargo and she suggest me her 2 favorite blush which was mendocino and rome .At first she was like try rome it's like a peachy coral color it's great for summer and i was like oh well it looks a little bit like Coralista from benefit and Nars Orgasm which i've already own.Then she suggest me mendocino it's a color that a don't really own ,she tried on me and IT WAS AMAZING!
The price wise i think it is cheaper than MAc blushes, i paid 26$ for the cargo blush and the MAC one is 22$ but theres less product in it.
Anyways i loved so much my first cargo blush so i got myself the rome blush.

I bought this blush about 1year ago and haven't looked back since. Its definitely my HG! The peachy color and little shimmer flecks give my skin a beautiful glow and I get complimented on how nice my skin looks all the time. Its my go to blush.

I found this blush after asking the Sephora SA to help me find my daily blush...IT WORKED!!! I love the gold shimmer and the hint of pink on my cheeks. It's a little more summery than I'd like for now....but it does the daggone job nonetheless. For now this is my HG....
*Update* I'm NC45 in MAC terms

I was heartbroken because Cargo discontinued my favorite blush, Panama. I missed the promotion on Beauty.com ,(get a free Panama blush with a purchase) ,so I went to Sephora to see if they had anything as pretty as Panama. I purchased Mendocino and I have to agree with you guys regarding the prettiness of this blush.When I tried it at home , it was cute but seemed to disappear after a while. I did like the tint and glimmer that it gave me but it didn't seem to stay that long. To be honest, I really did prefer Panama but I guess this will do until I can find something else. Don't get me wrong, it's beautiful because I love the subtle shimmer. Maybe it will grow on me.

LOVE! This is a rich, yummy berry-color blush with fine shimmer that looks great on my light neutral skin. It gives me the most amazing flush of healthy color that's perfect for winter. I already own a plethora of peachy, and light pinky blushes and was searching for something different this time. I wanted to try something berry or muave, but was afraid of the bruised effect that Nars Sin gave me. This is perfect! Really livens my winter complexion without turning purple. My new fave!

I am so glad I finally snapped this up after drooling over it for over a year...it's the perfect slightly shimmery, berry blush. It's a great no-brainer color, esp when I use my MAC 188 to apply it, and it compliments my skintone so well - no orange-potential whatsoever, which is a huge issue for my oily skin. LOVE this blush!
