Iím not a bronzer person because it usually looks so fake on my fair skin. But this summer I got more tanned than usual (NW25+) so I wanted to try a peach blusher to enlarge my collection which consisted of pinks only. I ended up buying this Cargo blusher because I was also interested in having a face powder that could work on my almost medium skin tone. Itís a very good multi-purpose product that Iíve been using the whole summer. I blend lightly all 4 colours on my face to unify my skin tone (insisting more on the beige/brown side), and I apply only the two pink/peach shades on the cheeks. Applied with a light hand, it enhances the natural summer glow without looking orangey. The pigmentation is good, but still sheer enough to achieve a natural look. The finish is completely matte, which is great for people like me who donít really like having shimmer all over the face. I have dry skin, and the powder doesnít accentuate dry patches, and it doesn't wear off that easily.
I find the packaging cute and compact, but the lid is not so convenient and sometimes hard to open.

I really love the natural color of this blush/bronzer. I use it across my nose and cheekbones and also on my forehead. When used alone, it gives your skin a great flush, and when used in conjunction with a bronzer all over, it's the perfect color blush too. It stays well, finishes well, and looks great on all my friends' skin tones too. I love it and I will definitely be buying again when I run out! : )

Cargo is a line that does not get the attention that it deserves. They have some standout products and this is one. This blush is matte so it gives a very natural finish. I use it as a blush mainly not a bronzer
I like to use the peachy stripe first and them warm it up a little with the bronzy part.
I love this and would buy again and again.

The "striped" configuration of this pressed powder product allows a user to easily customize the color and the combination really does suggest summer and the beach: sand, tans, dawn at the shore.
I also enjoy this product as an eyeshadow. The tan stripe gives a lovely matte shadow to the area under the brow and to the lid. I also like to mix the corals and apply over a lid primed with neutral brown shadow. The resultant terra cotta shade looks surprisingly rich on the lid and terra cotta plays up green or hazel eyes especially well. It's also nice to have this as a matte choice for eyes because so many shadows these days are so glinty.

I got this blush as a gift from a friend and it was definately my favourite one for a long while. I love how it is a combination of a blush and a bronzer in one. The packaging for Cargo products is really cute. It comes in a little tin looking thing. I would definately buy this product again.

I love this blush. It looks very natural, it's long lasting and a little goes a long way. Because of the different colors, it can also be used as a bronzer. Definitely will repurchase.

I like the idea of a blush/bronzer in one, but I find that this product works better when applied only as a blush. It's too pink for me to apply as a bronzer. I do like the fact that it's matte though as i find it difficult to find matte products anymore. I also like the fact that it has alot of pigment in it so I don't have to layer so much. In addition, it's the perfect mix of pink 'n' peach 'n' earth tones. Great product. I use this as a daily blush for work which works with any lipstick colour. Very versatile. It also lasts a VERY long time. I've had mine since summer last year and there's no dent in the product whatsoever given I wear it everyday!

i can see how this could've been a great idea - 2 matte brown shades with 1 perfect peachy shade and 1 red. on a big pan, in the right order they would've been so versatile & pretty. now they are crammed in the regular cargo blush jar, in a cumbersome order - lightbrown/darkbrown, light red/dark red - impossible to pick just one colour on a brush, and any colour combo sidebyside i just can't make work. a swirl of a brush with them all results in something quite.. muddy. so, i am pale, maybe this isn't even meant for me? so what are the very useful pale shades doing here anyway? a halfcocked execution spoils the good idea.

Product - Four matte stripes of color in one blush-sized pan: reddish coral, warm pink, rich caramel, and tan. Nicely pigmented. Smooth texture. Mixed together, it makes a peach shade, not too dark and not too bright. With the proper brush or technique, the coral and pink can be used as blush and the caramel and tan as bronzer. The individual stripes could also be used as eyeshadow. Nice combination of colors and quite wearable with my AAB/NC25 coloring.
Comparisons - Similar overall tones to Smashbox Fusion Softlights in Dimension, but Dimension is shimmery and brighter, more glowy; same size pan also. Mixed together, the overall peach shade reminds me of (but is a teeny bit deeper than) Cat Cosmetics Persian Peach eyeshadow/blush.
Packaging - Standard CARGO blush packaging with metal tin and lid. Can't tell what's inside without reading the label or opening it up. Unlike some other brands with metal tin packaging, CARGO's lids stay put just fine.
Overall - Nice matte blush/bronzer product.

Love this. When you swirl all the colors together you get a matte earthy peach. Goes on beautifully and stays all day without changing color. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the non-glam packaging (metal tin? yikes!). But, I love this blush. Go out and get it!

Beautiful! The perfect vibrant peach for me - texture is flawless. NC 30-35, tanned asian skin (yellow/olive undertones).

So pretty! This is a matte version of Cargo's popular beach blushes, which function as a combined bronzer and blush. The shades in this are warm and very flattering - I'd describe them as melon, pink-peach, caramel, and tan. On my summer-tanned NC30 face this shows up as a beautiful bronze-apricot glow: perfect for an early fall flush of color. I definitely prefer Cargo's matte bronzer to its shimmery ones, and I definitely prefer this to the regular beach blushes.
