More CARGO?... Yes Please!

So ever since I got a chance to really test out some Cargo products a few weeks ago (read about it here) Ive been itching to try more. Since Cargo is now 50% off at all Sephoras I went in to see what was left.

When I saw 1 of these blu_ray high definition mattifier's left I grabbed it along with another one of their amazing blushes in "Tonga".



Cost for the 2? $13.00 each.... regularly $26.00 each! I felt like it was the deal of the century because where can you get a primer/mattifier for $13?

The blu_ray™ High Definition Mattifier is described as a pore refining, line minimizing and mattifying, this product can be used over make-up or underneath as a primer for a camera-ready complexion.

Anyways I brought it home and immediately started playing around with the mattifier because I had read so many rave reviews online about it. I was really shocked when I opened the tube and squeezed out a skin colored gel. I had never ever seen a mattifier that wasn't clear or white so I thought on no maybe I grabbed the wrong thing... however as I rubbed it into my hand I quickly realized that the color disappeared and was non existent so there was nothing to worry about :)



after I rubbed it into my hand I noticed the fine lines were filled in and WOW my hand had never felt that soft before! I couldn't wait to try it the next day on my face and when I did it had the same effect. Fine lines and pores were blurred and minimized and my face felt incredibly soft. Right away my face looked matte even without powder and as I checked in on my face throughout the day I noticed it continued to stay matte.

The Tonga blush is a lighter matte pink then the previously reviewed Mendochino blush. It is perfect for the days when you want a touch of color without looking like you have tons of blush on! I can totally see this being an everyday blush and the fact that its matte makes it stand out in my collection as most of the blushes I own have a touch of shimmer in them.


Here you can see my completed look with the blu_ray mattifier under my foundation and a touch of the Tonga blush.



After trying out the blu_ray mattifier I'm so sad that Cargo will no longer be carried in Sephora stores because I'm truly in love with this product! However I'm told Cargo will soon be launching an e-commerce website where you will be able to order all of their fab products.

If you happen to find any Cargo products at your local Sephora store grab them because once they are gone...they are gone!

Pin It!
