If a pinkier hue is what you’re after, go for the Cargo Water Resistant Blush.

Birchbox Breakdown

Orangey, sparkly, muddy—we’ve encountered far too many offensive bronzers. Not so with Cargo’s award-winning bronzer. It’s a natural, buildable powder that makes you look like you spent a few hours in the sun, not in a dirty dust storm.

How it Works

The flattering tan powder works for a huge spectrum of skin tones because the color is so sheer and natural. Silica gives it a smooth, blendable quality, and mica adds the barest amount of shimmer.

How to Use

Using a fluffy brush, dust a tiny amount over your forehead, cheekbones, nose, and chin. Start with a little and build the color until you get a warm, all-over tan.

Mica, Talc, Nylon-12, Zinc Stearate, Dimethicone, Squalane, Aluminum Starch, Octenysuccinate, Polyethylene, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Kaolin, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Butylparaben, Methicone, Mineral Oil. May contain: Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxides.

Cargo Bronzer

I am a huge Cargo fan. I received a bronzer and lip gloss set from a friend as a gift last year and loved both. I use the bronzer every day and have already bought a replacement. Their bronzers are long lasting and the right color for many skin tones. I also love the los cabos coral blush!

Use this everyday

I use this bronzer every day- I have fair skin and it's hard to find a bronzer that doesn't look overdone, but this bronzer is perfect. Very easy to apply and goes on very evenly

Wish it didn't have shimmer
Purchased

I like most things about this bronzer, but I don't like the shimmery specks. I am in my 30s, so I feel glitter and shimmer is a little too young for my skin, unless it is eyeshadow.

I use it every day!

my skin tone varies a lot over the course of the year - darker in summer, very pale in winter. i love this because i can use it all year round for all over bronzed look or for a sun kissed glow. absolutely recommend. never orange, stays on during a full day's work, and goes easily on top of foundation or right onto skin. must buy!!!

Dark

I have very light skin so the color was a little dark for me. It does stay on my skin for hours and is great for summer heat.

Meh

It was too dark for me and, since I'm very pale, I prefer a more subtle bronzer. It had a nice texture, though, but I'm a novice with makeup and I couldnt blend it easily

Easy and awesome

So touch up powder usually washes me right out, so this is perfect. I can adjust every time so it's awesome in the summer where I might be a little lighter, darker from week to week. I have acne and combo skin and it's important that powder feels really light on my face. A new must-have for me!

LOVE LOVE LOVE!

I loved the sample I received, and if I hadn't dropped it I would still be using it 4 months later! I am purchasing another, now!

Bronzer

This is the perfect shade of bronzer. I have oily skin and large pores so as the day progressed I noticed that this would settle into my pores. I bet it would be perfect for someone who has normal skin.
