Cargo Blush in The Big Easy

this blush i ordered on beautybay.com (yay i found a Cargo source online! and the prices are great!). it seemed to be a safe one to try, so The Big Easy got into my shopping basket.
it contains 8.9g and cost something around 18€. it comes in a metal tin box. it's a light peachy pink with soft shimmer.
the texture of Cargo blushes are always very soft and silky, they are never powdery or chalky. the pigmentation with this one is rather sheer compared to my other Cargo blushes (i have only showed you Tonga yet), paired with the light colour it's a foolproof everyday shade. the peachy-pink also goes with every look.
applied, it's not too shimmery but has a beautiful slight golden glow that makes my cheeks look soft and juicy. the staying power is average, i haven't noticed any fading at the end of the day. it really is a "Big Easy" ;)

Cargo The Big Easy in sunlight: swatched heavily & blended out

this is how it looks applied (no contour or highlighter at all. please excuse the weird "uh - it's so bright"-expression)

this is how it compares to other peachy pinks:
NARS Deep Throat - Cargo The Big Easy - MNY 301 - Laura Mercier Orange Blossom - Chanel Espiègle
NARS Deep Throat - Cargo The Big Easy - MNY 301 - Laura Mercier Orange Blossom - Chanel Espiègle

it's like the light version of NARS Deep Throat, has much more dimension than the MNY blush, is pinker than Laura Mercier and Chanel.


  1. This looks so natural yet stunning on you. Love it!
