Hello all I hope you had a wonderful Christmas for me it is back on the bandwagon,
that means back on the diet (groan) and back to blogging.
I was so busy yesterday that I didn't take many photographs at all...
so unlike me!
Anyway on with a review of Cargo Beach Blush in Tenerife,
I know this may sound odd but as Christmas is all but over my mind has began
to dream of exotic far off lands and sunshine basically I want to go on holiday haha!
I hate the packaging of cargo blushes the large chunky metal cases do nothing for me.
I despise the feeling and they are too bulky for my personal taste.
I may depot them if I can ever decide on which freedom palette to purchase.
Just as with all the Cargo Beach Blushes this has four separate blush shades
which I guess should you have a small enough brush you could use them individually
but your best option in my opinion is to swirl all four together.
The four shades are quintessentially summer tones,
a bronzed pink, a light peach, a olive based tan brown and a yellow beige.
The blush is matte formula which I feel is the best universal finish
as unlike shimmer or frost finishes this does not accentuate any minor flaws (pores/lines).
Another benefit of a matte formula blush is that you can also use it to sculpt the cheekbones.
Cargo Beach Blush in Tenerife is velvety soft to the touch but well pigmented.
I would say this formulation is on par with Mac Matte blushes which I personally
find to be some of the best matte blush options available.
It applies evenly and without any fall out,
although it is matte it does not apply heavily or look overdone.
The four shades of Tenerife swirled together produces a medium bronzed pink shade,
the only comparisons I can draw shade wise is that of Sleek Suede blush.
The shade is neutral toned so it will suit the majority of skin tones
but it could appear slightly ashy on deep skins thanks to the matte formula.
I guess it can also be said that Benefit Dallas gives the same effect, bronzed with a hint of pink.
Sometimes bronzer can look muddy and un-natural but Cargo Tenerife gives a natural effect,
it gives a healthy flush of colour yet warms the complexion at the same time.
It is the closest thing to having a real sun kissed glow without jetting off!
Round Up - A natural sun kissed pink bronzed shade which is matte and well pigmented.
Best For - Those who like warming up their complexion without overdoing it.
Pigmentation - 9/10 I have deducted a point as it would look ashy on deep skin tones but otherwise it is close to perfection in the pigmentation stakes.
