Before I even got a decent amount of uses from this product, I completely cracked it. The packing for this blush is SO beyond frustrating I can't even tell you. The tin would not open no matter how many times I tried to pry it open so finally in an act of desperation I threw it on the ground to try to loosen the lid. Well that worked but it completely cracked the blush inside. So now I have a really messy and cracked blush.
The blush itself is rather shimmery- which I am not a big fan of. The colors are nice but I don't think this blush is worth the cost.

Product - Four shimmery stripes of color in one blush-sized pan: golden peachy pink, pinkish brown, hot pink, and golden peachy champagne. Nicely pigmented. Smooth texture. Mixed together, it makes a lovely bronzed rose - just as you would expect of a combined blush and bronzer product. With the proper brush or technique, the hot pink and golden peachy champagne shades can be used together as blush, and the golden peachy pink and pinkish brown together 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 tones as Smashbox Fusion Softlights in Blushing Pink, though the shades in Blushing Pink are balanced differently and it wears far more pink.
Packaging - Standard CARGO blush packaging with metal tin and lid. Can't tell what's inside without reading the label or opening it up.
Overall - I expected this to wear more pink, and I am pleasantly surprised that it's more of a bronzed rose on me (AAB/NC25).

Whoa. Talk about Edward-Cullen-in-the-sun sparkle.
This is a terribly pretty brush in the pan. The four strips of bronze and pink are perfect for that summertime glow. The pigment for me is slightly lacking, but I think it's due to the fact that I'm so stingy with application, because I'm terrified I'm going to overdo it and look like a walking, smiling disco ball. So I don't use this as blush on its own; rather, I wear something subtle beneath, like MAC Melba, and then dust Sunset Beach on top with a stippling brush. That method works on my fair to medium NC25 skin, but if I were more tan... wow. This would be absolutely divine! Still, Cargo could amp up the color and tone down the shimmer.

This is such a pretty pink bronzer-blush. It is great for light to medium skin tones. It has a little bit of shimmer unlike the other beach blushes in this line which were way tooo shimmery and dark.

Pretty pinky bronzy peach shimmery blush....nothing special. The price is right and you get a lot for what you pay. It is pretty but wish it weren't so much of a sheen. Flattering and face brightening though..
Great formula. Not a fan of the tin packaging but oh well.

The color is soo pretty. It also gives a great glow but the only problem is that it is very shimmery. this blush is good for rainy or cloudy days when the sun isnt out or else u will sparkle way too much. its also great for nights or clubs. i love it as my non-sunny day blush!

For several years now I've tried to figure out how a fair-skinned person like myself could wear bronzer. I've seen some pretty disastrous attempts at it. I was at Sephora, overwhelmed by all the bronzers, and saw a very fair saleswoman. So I asked her if it was possible for women like us to wear bronzer. And this is what she pointed me to - a blush/bronzer combo. Finally! A bronzer that works for pale people! I was surprised to see that Cargo classifies at as a blush, because it is DEFINITELY in the bronzer category on my my pale face. I could never wear this as blush, but it works perfectly to give me a post-sun glow. (of course in real life I'd burn) I tried on a few others and this was the only one that looked natural. I love that it has a little bit of shimmer. A little goes a long way, which makes it less cost prohibitive.

Got this as part of the 7 in 7 set. OMG, this blush is just a big ole mess, and the worst product of the set. It's so frosty I looked like an aging disco-queen, not a good look on me :-( it made my face look dirty. Shimmer looks better on eyes than cheeks IMO. Passing it on to my 13 year-old daughter.

Love this blush. I have been using it since May. It looks very pretty, My sister got it for me for my birthday. I will buy a new one. It lasts really long too. I have had it since may, and it looks like i have barely used it, but i use it every day.

When I first looked at Cargo products at Ulta, I had no intention of buying. I saw this blush and was intrigued and after swatching it, I just couldn't say no. I like that I can use a kabuki to blend all the color together and give my face a nice summery glow without looking like I have a lot of product on. I can also use a smaller blush brush or contour brush to use one or two of the brighter colors for a bright blush for day or night. It does have shimmer to it, so I don't use it as something to wear to work as I normally use matte products for the office. It's pricey, so I probably won't repurchase it often, but you get a lot of product for the money so I don't think I will be running out any time soon.

THIS IS THE FIRST ONE I EVER BOUGHT & IS MY FAVORITE SHADE OUT OF THE SERIES. I am in love with the Cargo BeachBlush. The colors are sort of intimidating at first but once you swipe them on your skin you'll be amazed at how well it blends in, not to mention the glow your skin will have. I have gotten compliments on my skin looking "poreless" thanks to this blush. (My pores are naturally large on my cheeks' apples). Cool toned or warmed toned, your skin will look beautiful with this on.

I am really sorta disappointed with this product. I bought this thinking that it looked sorta pinkish on me, but it really doesn't...and then after reading a bunch of your reviews, several of you said it was a sort of peachy color. I am thinking that the sa put a different blush on me, because this definately doesn't look pinkish on me. I am so disappointed. I don't hate this, it's just not what I was looking for. I don't think I am going to take it back because I can use it for different looks. I don't always wear the same blush. And on that note, I don't think I am returning to that store again...it was a Sephora inside JCPenney's...JCPenney's is really just good for clothes!

As usual, I'm seem to be the lone voice of disagreement..I don't think this was all the reviews made it out to be.Grant it,it's incredibly pigmented, even with a skunk brush,which is why I gave it a 3..but on my NC15 skin, it came across as more orange then peach or bronze..Could be oxidation but it seemed to apply orange..but I wanted to give it the benefit of the doubt.. Just not a great shade.I will definitely be checking out other shades though

Love this. yes, it's expensive, but there's so much product and it's so wonderful--worth every penny. it's shimmery, but not glittery-it just gives me a nice pinky natural glow. best of all, it lasts for hours, which no other blush has ever done! and i actually like the container-easy on and off lid. one of the only expensive blushes i would buy again!

I just got this a few days ago and so far love it. It's very subtle though, but as I have very fair skin with pink undertones, it works for me. Slightest hint of shimmer, very soft and great light bronze / pink color.
First I apply my everyday MAC Pinch of Peach blush to the apples of my cheeks, then I use a very large brush and swirl it around in the Beachblush, tap excess off, then apply to my cheekbones, temples, along the forehead, and whatever is left on my nose and chin. It adds a nice bronzy color without being too dark, which is always a problem for me with most bronzers I've tried.
I find that it doesn't have quite enough pink color to wear alone as a blush for me (and that's why I use MAC on my apples), but it the perfect bronzer for my very fair skin.

Love the color! One of my fav! But hate the packaging. The tin lid is very loose so i had to twist it a bit. The color is peachy pink (like NARS DT but brighter on my cheeks). It does have shimmer so it's glowy.... I really like the quality.

Wow I love this blush - gives you a beautiful, pinky-peachy flush as if you've been playing outside on the beach all day. No shimmer, highly pigmented and very blendable. Truly one of the most natural and (I would imagine) universally flattering colors out there. This is one I wouldn't want to put all over, but is brilliant to brighten up my cheeks. I find myself reaching for this one more and more. Doesn't bother my sensitive, breakout-prone skin either. Highly recommend.

I have sensitive, acne-prone, combination skin. Every cosmetic product I try has a 75% percent chance of either enhancing my skin's oiliness or enhancing my skin's dryness. Trust me, it is not a pretty sight. Cargo's beach blush on the other hand, did neither. It made my skin look flawless, and topped it off with a glow.
This product exceeded my already high expectations. The fact that it didn't magnify my skin's imperfections was great, but there are many other things I love about this product.
Starting with the price, it is decently priced & yet of wonderful quality. I almost spent another $45 dollars on Guerlain blush before spotting this jewel on www.sephora.com. Amazing.
Then, there's the product packaging. The tin it comes in is adorable and trendy! It's silver, my favorite color. I was worried about the container not being tight enough, and thus the 'blush' could break. But I have yet to encounter that problem.
Next, is the quality. I can wear this product for over 8 hours and yet not need a single touch up. My favorite part is, the beautiful color. It's indescribable. Pinks, tans, apricots, and a tiny bit of shimmer. I am in LOVE with it. & yet it gives you a natural look, as if you just got back from the beach and you were born with beautiful pink undertones.
What most people fail to miss when consideration of purchasing this product, is that it is a BRONZER BLUSH. It works as both. I was hesitant to purchase it at first because i was worried it would be too pink, but believe me it WILL give you a slightly bronzed look also. No orange tones, either.
Whether you're a blonde like me, a brunette, or a red head - this color is sure to give you a gorgeous glow.
*EDIT*I have come to learn that it is way too shimmery, thus it makes my skin look shiny...which is also another word to describe OILY! Ughhh i love the color, just hate the shimmer. :[ I knocked off one lippie for the shimmer.

This is by far THE best product I have ever bought. I use it alone on days I feel like being low maintenance. It is a great, workable blending blush/bronzer. Yes, it's pricey, but Cargo is KNOWN for their blushes, and for good reason. I read a Lucky magazine beauty editor's tip that said apply blush or bronzer to forehead and as an eyeshadow as well for a healthy look. So I tried it, and I look like I got back from a spa or something. And the tin it comes in is so minimalist! I love this stuff. My skin is BareMinerals fair/golden, if that helps if determining if this product is right for you. The only one of the BeachBlushes that looks sketchy to me is CoralBeach (too orange). And although some reviewers wrote it was great for summer, I think a healthy glow is appropriate in winter also. I must shout it from the rooftops--this product is wonderful! TIP: Use it on eyelids for a natural color wash that can be layered and blended or simply worn alone. Like Cargo's eyeshadows, the formulation is smooth and blendable. Well worth a try-- why not get two uses out of one product?

I was initially dissapointed when I got this in the mail from sephora, I thought it was going to be cooler. But then I tried it on and I love it! It looks very natural on, and has much less shimmer/glitter than miami beach which I also love. For reference I am NW25ish with olive tones.
