Go figure. Just as Cargo seems to be making an exit from Canada, I find out how great it really is. I'd been eyeing the line for a while but the prices kept me at bay. Now that they're 1/2 price at London Drugs (Western Canada), I couldn't resist giving some of the products a try. I'm really liking this! I have normal combo skin and I prefer a more matte finish, and that is exactly what this does - give a demi matte finish. I get a little shiny in the t-zone half way through the day, but no biggie. A little powder or blotting papers and I'm good to go. I'm about an NC30 and 3C works well for me. It's *supposed* to be a cool tone (hence the "C") but to my eye it's actually rather warm. I just use a pea sized amount, blend on my fingers and quickly blend over my face. It seems to set rather quickly but I didn't have any issues applying it to my entire face before it wouldn't move. It's not like a "longwear, won't budge" sort of set, it just seems to dry on the faster side. I haven't tried it with a brush or sponge yet - I'm lazy in that department, finding hands quicker to wash than a sponge or brush. The finish is smooth and even with a medium finish. I could probably go full coverage if I used a sponge and more product but for everyday, this is perfect.
Sad that the line seems to be clearing out of Canada. Not sure what the deal is and I tried to email the company but got no reply... :(
