I did not like the packaging this comes in since it is large but has no space for a brush. I cannot pack it into any palettes. I think it is overpriced but it is a better clone of a NARS Orgasm as the color range is that of Orgasm.
The product however is spectacular. It has the perfect amount of pink/coral/ with minimum fine gold so that it looks really natural and gives that dose of health and color we all want. It is not shiny or shimmery.
I bought two.

I am very fair NC15. I like this blush. It gives me a pretty glow without being over the top. I attempted to use the MAC 187 for this and I didn't really like how it applied this blush for some reason. But if I use a pretty big face brush I get the natural looking results I am going for. This is my favourite pink blush.

There was a 50% off Cargo sale going on at Sephora, and I thought I would make out like a bandit. Turns out all of their blushes were gone except for this one. I was intrigued by the "blu ray" aspect of it, and it looked very pretty in the pan indeed (albeit pretty sparkly). However, after swiping it on my hand I thought "No way is this going to show up on my face." I have medium yellow undertone skin (probably around NC30-35) and this pale pink, which some people have described as akin to NARS Orgasm, looked way too light. But because I have zero common sense when it comes to makeup, I bought it anyway based on Cargo's reputation for blush and the fact that it was on sale. Fast forward to this morning when I tried it on for the first time. I don't know how they did it, but this blush came out as a BEAUTIFUL subtle flush of peachy pink. And the sparkles on the surface? They show up as merely a hint of shimmer. So natural and flattering, and by that I don't mean that it's sheer or un-noticeable. It's quite pigmented and you only need to tap your brush gently in the product to pick up enough. This stuff will probably last me forever. My only gripe is the packaging. It's very sleek and minimal, which I like, but it doesn't say anywhere (on the actual compact or the box) what color the blush is. Apparently there are two, a pink and a peach, but unless you take the compact out of the box and open it, you don't know which one you're getting. I'm pretty sure I bought the pink version. If it wasn't on sale, I probably wouldn't have looked twice at it (I just can't justify spending over $30 for a blush), but I'm thankful I did! Grab this before it's gone!

I think I missed the point on this blush. It was meant to be a natural looking high-definition blush, but when I swatched this on my hand it had a beautiful light pink shimmer which I thought would show up on my skin. When I applied this, the shimmer disappeared completely. Furthermore, this did not look good on my tanned skin because it was too light and appeared chalky. If I didn't buy this on clearance at Sephora I would return it. This is better for lighter skin tones in my opinion.

This blush is so natural and the color is perfect for fair skin tones.
Age: 44-55 Skin: Normal Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
This blush is totally stunning on me...I've already purchased backups just in case they stop making it which usually happens to me when I find HG material!

I bought the pinky-peach shade and I've gotten compliments from everyone. The consistency is fantastic, and it applies evenly and beautifully; it looks so natural and as an added bonus, it really evens out the acne scars on my cheeks; I'd always been very careful with blush because of this, because I felt it would only exaggerate the scarring...but this blush smooths out my cheeks and makes them look poreless! The price ($27) is more than I've ever paid for blush, but honestly, you get what you pay for, and I don't regret a cent.

I am NW15 with naturally rosey cheeks. I have been looking for a perfect blush for some time now. I have tried Nars Orgasm, which didn't show on me at all (strange). MAC's blushes in all formulas, Laura Geller, Chanel, Smashbox, DS, you name it. Nothing has looked as natural and pretty as this. I bought this in the Pink color and really love it. I have noticed that it doesn't fade by the end of the day. The color was soft and pretty, not too sparkly or glittery. Just a hint of glow. HG for me!
This was my first purchase from Cargo. I'm impressed.
EDIT": I had to change my vote to Not Repurchase because of a newly developed allergy to Parabens. This does contain many forms of parabens so I am unable to use and it now up for swap.
*Update* Still using and still loving! My go-to blush for all occasions.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Perfect pink blush for me. First I thought the color looked too light, but when I put it on it truly gave the most natural and beautiful pink color on my cheeks. I LOVE this and will repurchase. It builds up nicely too so if I want a bit more blushed look I just put more on. AMAZING product! Best blush (better than Benefit Coralista and Nars orgasm)

Pretty light pink with a touch of shimmer. Cargo's blushes are finely milled and the color payoff with one swipe proves it. I think the whole Blu Ray line is a must if you want flawless makeup and skin in pictures. I end up looking better in photos! Pricey, but you get tons of product.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Love this blush. it is very natural and so finely milled, that you literally only need one careful swipe of product.
it's a bit expensive though, but worth the price tag. the only con about the product is the packaging. it's nice and all, however, it can sometimes be difficult to open.... maybe it'll loosen up after awhile?

I love this blush!!! I wouldn't really call this a highlighter but it does have a subtle shimmer in it. I'm a NC15 and this is great on my skintone at all times of the year, even with a tan. Excellent quality and texture. I usually stick to MAC, but I'm glad I gave this one a chance. It is my everyday go to. Wish it came in some more colors. The only complaint is that because it is so finely milled that there is a ton of fallout after I swipe my brush through it. Will totally buy this again.

I really like this blush, I would buy it again.

This may be the most perfect blush ever. It is similiar, as many have said, to NARS Orgasm. I like it better, though. It just lights you from within, as a natural blush would do. It is very finely milled. Everything everyone says below is correct - this stuff is awesome and if you are on a search for THE perfect blush, this is probably it. Sparkly but not in a bad way. Very very subtle. It's really almost idiot proof. I direct that comment toward myself, since I am not an expert at blush application.

Obsessed. love it. love it love it.

I bought this blush mostly for the sheer novelty value of it. Don't get me wrong, it's a very attractive colour, but I was drawn to the whole "blu_ray" thing. I'm a sucker for anything "HD" and "blu ray".
I liked the product and used it several times but ended up leaving it on the bottom of my pile of blushes. I recently started using it again and holy cow! I'm such an idiot for not using it as often as I should have.
The packaging is a sleek black flip top compact with a mirror. It stays closed, no problems here. I like this packaging more than the regular Cargo blushes that come in the tin jar thing.
This blush is a pinky peach shade with small golden sparkles, not to be confused with frosty, which I hate. For reference, I am NC30, MUFE mat velvet #40, and MUFE HD #120. It's just a very soft and pretty colour. I use this as a blush and it is very soft and finely milled. It's not one of those dreaded blushes were you have to dig into the pan in order to get product onto your brush. One swipe and you can see a heck lot of product is on! Being finely milled means that the product is easy to blend. The product is very pigmented and buildable.
The texture of this blush is similar to the MAC beauty powder blushes. Cargo's regular line of blushes are also very soft and finely milled, though not as much as the blu_ray. I'm starting to really like Cargo blushes and I think they are becoming my favorite! I have one other blush from them, The Big Easy, and I'm probably going to get more (Tonga and Catalina :)) I like them way more than NARS blushes!
CARGO BLUSHES DON'T GET THE CREDIT THEY DESERVE!!!

I really, REALLY like this blush. It's NARS Orgasm's subtle sister. I wanted to fall in love with Orgasm, but it was just too much for my liking (aka too glittery & the colour came out very strong on me) I purchased this Blu-Ray blush after reading a couple other reviews & I'm pretty happy with it. However, if your application hand is a tad heavy, then you might think this blush IS Orgasm. My initial reaction when I applied this (with the same technique I use with my other blushes) was that it was too heavy for me. But after trying again, with a very light application this comes out perfect on me. Luckily, I get both the pink & peach tones expressed on my skin & the glitter/shimmer this blush has is very subtle on me. Pricey & the packaging can be a little annoying to open, but I would for sure buy again.

After a long search, CARGO Blu Ray is my HG blush. I have the pink-toned one. I never have a problem opening the case, I guess I lucked out with mine :) The color is so flattering, glowy and natural, and the best part is that it stays put from the moment you put it on till you take it off. No more blush fadeout in the afternoon! Also love the fact that there is no dinky useless blush brush in the pan.
The only downside for me is that you really have to be careful when swiping your blush brush on the pan since a lot of product comes off; I merely need to touch it to get the right amount of powder. Bare Escentual's 'feather light' brush is a good brush for this type of powder.

i have the pink color. i really like this product. i first got it as a sample from sephora, when the product first came out, and i fell in love. it's a very subtle pretty pink. this blush looks really nice paired with orgasm lip gloss. you'll get a healthy glow.

I got this when i was in Paris Sephora. I actually plan to buy NARS Orgasm but there is lady who work there higherly recommend this item and told me orgasm is good but the glitter is too much so i tried both at the same time and i decided to take CARGO blur-ray blush. Im simply loving it. I love this item in fact that doesnt glitter too much on my face but still gives color. the one thing i dont like about this item is the case. it is really annoying when you try to open it. somehow got so tight it can give damage on the surface. well besides that i absolutely love it.
