ABAD Day 23: CARGO Beach Blush in Sunset Beach//"每日一胭脂"系列 第23天: CARGO Sunset Beach胭脂

CARGO blushes are hard to get, medium-priced, but they're worth the penny. I got their Beach Blush in Sunset Beach when I was visiting Rotterdam in the Netherlands last year. My guy friend spotted a Sephora way earlier than me and told me "Hey there's a Sephora!" So we went in and the SA told me they're having a 25% off, needless to say I located the rack where CARGO was and grabbed Sunset Beach, it's been on my wishlist since FOREVER.

CARGO 的胭脂很難找, 價錢中等, 但絕對值每分每毫. 我在荷蘭的Rotterdam旅行時, 朋友(男的)竟然比我先發現Sephora的存在, 立刻指給我看. 進了店, 店員說現有25% off. 再說嫌多, 我跑到CARGO的櫃, 買下了它 - Sunset Beach. 終於可在wishlist刪去它了!

Sunset Beach consists of 4 color stripes: champagne light beige/yellow; baby pink; brown and peach. The blush carries shimmer but is not overboard with it. Housed in typical CARGO style metal tin with 9g of product.

Sunset Beach內有4色: 香檳/米黃色; 淺粉紅; 啡; 蜜桃色. 帶閃粉不誇張. 以經典CARGO金屬罐載著, 9克容量.

I have swatched Sunset Beach next to Montebello (reviewed here) for comparison. Sunset Beach is a bit darker than Montebello apparently.

我把Sunset Beach 和 Montebello 一起試色, Sunset Beach較深色.

Now is the curious part, Sunset Beach swatches so beautifully on hand and in real life on my face but the camera wouldn't quite capture it well, apologies. It shows up exactly the same as the swatch on my arm, faint shimmer and adds a warm glow to my cheeks.

很詭秘地, 相機不太能捕捉Sunset Beach在面上的顏色, 其實和我在手背上試色的一樣, 很warm的顏色.

Intensity: Highly pigmented, smooth texture
Finish: Bit shimmery
Price: $28 USD?
Lasting power: 6-7 hours
Repurchase: Yes
Overall thoughts: The 4 color combinations in this blush got me crazy, it adds a warm glow to my cheeks without being frosty, pigmentation is high and texture is so smooth.

上色度: 極高, 粉沫很柔滑
效果: 帶閃
價錢: $28 美元左右
持久度: 6-7 小時
總評: 這4種顏色很令我著迷, 很漂亮, 掃在面上會有很柔和的光澤, 不會太閃, 容易顯色, 質地幼滑.

What is A-Blush-A-Day (ABAD) Project?
On each day, each of us will present a different blush (old or new) we used each day (so that's 4 x 30 = 120 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, Vonvon's, PopBlush's blogs for daily blush surprises!
