Although I generally don't write consecutive posts on the same brand, CARGO's Spring 2010 collection has completely caught my eye! It boasts four vivid hues of blush, one repromote and three new shades. Don't be scared off by the bright colors. While certainly bold, these cheek colors promise to provide wearable tints that can be worn by all of us regardless of skin tone. I'm digging the product names, too! During this bout of cold weather, I like to let my mind wander off with thoughts of warmer climes.
The Blushes ($24 each):
Amalfi - shimmering hot pink (NEW)
Cannes - soft peach (NEW)
Key Largo - tropical punch (NEW)
Laguna - tropical melon (repromote)
Makeup guru Sam Fine has cited Laguna as one of his favorite blushes. He has used the color on many of his celebrity clients, including Tyra Banks, Vanessa Williams, and Iman.
All of the blusher shades are so Spring-appropriate. I, for one, tend to opt for brighter pops of color on my cheeks as the weather starts to warm up. Each can be worn intensely or sheer, depending on how light your hand is when applying the color and on what type of brush you employ.
CARGO's formula is also incredibly silky and smooth to the touch (I can speak from experience with their other blushes!) The powders also blend nicely and are long-lasting.
These blushes will be available in the Spring at CVS, Beauty 360, Ulta, and other independent beauty boutiques.
I can't wait to check them out! Have you used CARGO blushes before?
NB: I reported yesterday that CARGO will no longer be available at Sephora locations in the U.S. as well as on their U.S. website. I wanted to provide you with a list of retailers that will continue to carry the brand.
Within the U.S.:
