Cargo Los Cabos Water Resistant Blush Review & Swatches

Cargo Water Resistant Blush  Los Cabos

Cargo Los Cabos Water Resistant Blush ($26) is one of those blushes that I don’t really need because it’s so similar to colors I already own. But who can resist golden peachy gorgeousness?

I feel like I’m rushing away the Holidays with this one as it makes me thing of Spring break on a beach, sipping a tropical drink, lazing in the sun, and reading a good book. HOWEVER….I’d never DO any of that. I avoid the beach like the plague (I’m more of a pool girl) and sitting in the sun? Never happen! This skin won’t take to lounging in the sun, at least not without a heaping helping of SPF and even after that I won’t expose myself to that much sun in a single sitting.

So maybe it’s best to take home this blush and have a little tropical get away right in front of my makeup mirror!

Cargo Los Cabos Water Resistant Blush is a pretty golden peach. Yes, it is very much like my beloved NARS Orgasm but has a touch more orange to the shade making it a warm orange-y golden coral. The color can be applied sheer or full on for more pop! It’s the type of color that will work on a host of different skin tones which is why I adore it. On my it goes all golden subtle peach heaven! It isn’t too shimmery or sparkly and has a smooth, satiny finish that doesn’t accentuate pores or drier areas.

Plus it wears like a champ with a solid 12 hour wear without losing intensity or fading and looking as if I just put it on 11 hours after I applied it.

It’s a little pricey at $26 since NARS Orgasm is in the same price range but none the less it is gorgeous enough to warrant a purchase.

Loves it!

    I have Cargo’s Water Resistant blush shade in Bali and I am absolutely obsessed with it. I wear it almost every day. It’s a beautiful pink with a nice sheen- not crazy glitter or shimmer, but it gives me a beautiful glow that doesn’t accentuate my pores. And it wears so well on my oily skin. It performs just as well as my beloved Tarte blushes. I can’t say enough good things about this blush, I have to try other shades!
