CARGO Blush in Catalina - Photos, Swatches and Review

Yesterday, I was getting dressed up and I since I wore smokey black eyes, I wanted a lighter, matte blush to go with it and I picked up Cargo's blush in Catalina. Its a really gorgeous pink shade and I was surprised that even at night time, this blush stayed true to its color. It lasted me the whole night and with some heavy contouring, this was the perfect blush for the evening. I had always used this for day time, since its a very natural looking shade and is great for a no makeup look. However, I totally love how versatile it can be.

SWATCHES




Cargo's blush in Catalina is described as a cotton candy pink and it reminded me of MAC's Pink Swoon. The shade is great for daily wear and looks very natural on cheeks. Its matte, so it never looks too over the top, for day time. Its such a beautiful color that I find myself reaching for this every day!
The texture of this blush is silky and smooth. Its super blendable and I never had issues applying this to my cheeks. It is also buildable, so color can be layered on for more intensity and I feel a lot of skin tones can wear it.  I could even pull this off for night time too, because I could layer it up for more color! This blush is also long lasting - almost 5 to 6 hours without touch ups!
Cargo blushes have this tin packaging, which is quite unique and I was surprised to see that there is a lot of product in there! It holds 8.9 grams of blush which is twice the amount of any other blush I own. The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly. I can pop this in my makeup bag without worrying about it getting broken or anything.

This blush retails for CAD $26 for 8.9gm so I get a lot more bang for my buck and I definitely see my self buying more of Cargo blushes. They are really amazing! You can purchase this from London Drugs. They are currently at a  discount so you could grab a few for yourself. They are available in 9 shades so there is one for every occassion.
