ABAD Day 6: CARGO Suede Blush in Montebello//"每日一胭脂"系列 第六天: CARGO Suede Blush in Montebello

CARGO makes extremely good blushes and I keep being impressed by their quality and range of colors. Yet they're seldom talked of in the beauty blogging world, hence I decided to feature a few of their blushes in the A-Blush-A-Day project. On Day 6 of the ABAD project, I bring you CARGO Suede Blush in Montebello!

如果你有聽過 CARGO的話, 可能知到它們的胭脂很有名. Beauty blogs甚少提及它們, 所以我決定在"每日一胭脂"系列內feature它們. 來到第6 天, 今天介紹Montebello胭脂!

CARGO blushes often come in metal tins, they easily stood out from my stash. Montebello has a marble-like surface made up of coral reds, light pinks, and bronze shades. I don't own anything with a marble-like surface until this.

CARGO 的胭脂多數使用金屬罐剩載, Montebello這顏色令人想起雲石的表面, 由珊瑚粉紅, 淺粉紅, 淡啡顏色組成. 混色胭知我有用過, 但沒有這個雲石般的設計.

The swatch came out with a shimmery pink, which looks gorgeous (also when swatched on skin, see below).

試色出來是帶微閃的粉紅, 掃在面上一樣漂亮.

Dusted on cheeks, I like how warm and the slight coral pink hue it imparts to my cheeks and the healthy glow it adds! Pigmentation is high, color is easy to blend, smooth application and contains a whopping 12 GRAMS!!!

下圖把Montebello掃在面上, 令人看下去很健康的珊瑚紅 + 微閃效果. 顏色很容易出來, 掃得均勻, 還有它有12克!!! 比一般胭脂還要多出很多呢.

Intensity: high in pigmentation
Finish: shimmery, smooth finish which adds a healthy glow
Price: $19 (got it on sale price)
Lasting power: lasted the whole day, 8-9 hours at least
Repurchase: YES, in other shades
Overall thoughts: CARGO blushes never disappoint me, no matter it is pigmentation, application, amount of product, range of colors available. Their blushes are worth the talk and the hype and the rave, though not many of their products have been talked about but they truly deserves some mention and rave!

效果: 微閃效果, 掃上時很順滑
價錢: $19 USD (應該是特價時購入的)
持久度: 整日, 8-9 小時一定少不得的了
回購: 會, 其他顏色
總評: CARGO 的胭脂從沒有令我失望, 無論是顏色選擇, 使用容易程度, 上色度, 容量方面都很理想. 即使CARGO 的產品甚少被提及, 但絕對值得令人rave 的!

What is A-Blush-A-Day (ABAD) Project?
Project ABAD was started by Elaine, Jolyn and I. On each day, each of us will present a different blush (old or new) we used each day (so that's 3 x 30 = 90 blushes), with swatches done either on face or on hand, and a short review. For my list of 30 blushes to be used in this project, click here. Don't forget to head to Elaine's and Jolyn's blogs for daily blush surprises!

我們三個(Elaine, Jolyn 和我)每天會介紹當日使用的胭脂, 3人 x 30 = 會介紹總共 90 個胭脂 (新與舊), 配以試色圖(於手上或面上), 再加短短的用評. 本人於未來30天會使用這些胭脂. 去Elaine, Jolyn的blogs看看她們在用那個胭脂吧!!


  1. like Montebello too! I love how unique it looks and how it imparts a sheen that is totally far from being shimmery. :P

  2. 12 grams?? that is huge! =D And looks lovely! seriously wanting one now..hehe

  3. Ahh I have one of these Suede blushes too! Mine is in a different shade from yours.. can't quite remember the name for now hahaha

    It's a lovely blush indeed, shame that I don't reach for it as often =.= Must be its location, I tuck it right at the back of my drawer and I usually use the ones that are scattered on my table =.=

  4. I don't anything from Cargo yet. But this is a nice blush, looks good on you. And I like the marbelised appearance of the blush too.

  5. Jenn, I love the marble finish and how it looks on you! I have never heard of Cargo before :P and you just taught me a new brand! Can Cargo be found in HK? :D

  6. I loooove how it looks in the pan! :)

  7. very pretty! i dont have this one, but I have the big easy blush and I love it!

  8. Pretty blush, it looks super interesting in the pan and very nice and glowy on your cheeks.

    Cargo used to be so popular in the past but I hardly ever see them around anymore :(

  9. that sure is a lot of product. the color is so pretty too! :3

  10. I haven't tried cargo blushes yet, thanks for the review, the color is super pretty^0^~

  11. GURL PLEASE ; D You know that you're way more pro than I am..

  12. havent tried these but it looks great :D

  13. The blush reminds me of Physicians Formula the Glow collection! I love the different colors. When you blend the colors, do they fade over time?

    Good to know you recycle! :)

  14. 呢個幾好喎,係邊度買架?

  15. I have not tried out anything from Cargo yet, but I keep hearing good things about their blushes!

    I might have a look at these once I get the chance to come across Cargo, since this brand is not available here. :)

  16. you are a devil for cargo!
    but montebello is marbleish polished!

    i find it cumbersome to twist the cargo tin cap when my hands hav moisturizer haha :( gotta battle with the cap!!


LOVE to hear what you think <3 I'll try my best to respond to every comment!
