Cargo Blush in Cannes

witness my blush obsession, friends ;) here is Cargo Cannes, next in row from my order. it contains 8.9g and costs 15£/17.60€.
it comes in a silver tin with Cargo stamped on the lid as usual.
Cannes is a matte peachy orange, the most orange blush in my collection. when i swatched it, i was afraid that it wouldn't work on me, but luckily it's less orangey on my cheeks but looks like a true peach on me, while other peach blushes turn coral or pink on my skin. it gives me a bright fresh appearance, almost radiant. it's quite pigmented but silky and finely milled, so it applies and blends evenly. i find this matte texture almost as good as from my matte NARS blushes, but NARS still has a bit more of a light transparency when blended i think.
it lasts all day without becoming reddish or fade. as the day goes and my skin oils break through, it looks even better, like a fine peachy stain combined with "natural glow" ;)

this is how it looks on me:

as you can see the other matte orange-peachy blushes contain more red pigment parts.


  1. Wow, the colour is absolutely beautyful!
    I think asians should always wear golden or brown blushes, it suits them so good!

  2. Have you tried MAC Peaches? I'd be interested to see how it compares!

  3. @ari: hi ari, i'm not an expert, but i heard that most asians would suit blue toned pinks. for my part i wear whatever i like, if it doesn't look too weird in combination with the rest of my make up. ;)

    @sophia: no i haven't, since i have gina and gilda by nars, melba by mac and now cannes from cargo, i don't think i'll need more matte peach blushes. yet. ;)
