CARGO Molokai

It’s a shame that Sephora no longer carries CARGO, because their products rock. This blush is no exception. While you can’t get CARGO cosmetics at Sephora anymore (I bought a bunch when they clearanced them at 50% off), you can still find it at Ulta and online stores like* and

Molokai is a great blush for warm skin tones. I am not a makeup artist though, so take my opinion with a grain of salt. It looks like it might not be a good fit for pale, cool toned complexions (if you have this blush and fit that description, please tell me how it worked for you). The color looks like a light terra cotta in the pan, but when applied it also has a bit of a bright peachiness to it. It is quite lovely, and I bet it will really shine as a summer blush.

The blush is well pigmented, which is very typical of CARGO blushes. It has a matte finish, which I love. I like the flexibility of matte blushes because I can use it as is for a more natural/nude look, or I can add a highlighter for when I want some extra oomph. Wear time is excellent. It is there until I wash my makeup off. My typical times for me are 6 to 8 hours. I rarely wear a face of makeup longer than that. This is definitely a blush I love and recommend.

CARGO Molokai blush retails for $29 for a very generous 8.9g blush. You can also find it for a discount every once in awhile on Hautelook*. I have purchased a few of my CARGO blushes from them.
