Cargo Bronzer

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.

Hybrid Touch-up Powder
Sampled

I've never used this brand before receiving the sample this month. I didn't actually receive just the bronzer in my box, I got the hybrid touch-up powder which is a combo of bronzer and pressed powder. The first time I used it, it was about 10 hours after I applied my makeup for the day. I used it as a general touch-up over whatever makeup was left on my face and it seemed to do a good job of touching up and removing shine. The second time I used it as the powder over my liquid foundation. It set my foundation pretty well and gave my skin a good even tone. My make up stayed on pretty well that day. I wouldn't want to buy just the bronzer, but would consider buying the bronzer and pressed powder combo.

Orange!

I'm very fair skinned and this made me look orange and didn't give much coverage at all :(

Combo pack
Sampled

I got a combo bronzer/touch-up powder in my April box. Definitely gives some much needed color to my winter skin without being overpowering. Not sure I like the combo pack idea but its good for trying the products. Would purchase separately.

Bronze Bliss

Really enjoying my Cargo bronzer! The buildable color makes it easy to add just as much or just as little color. It has a nice sheen to it without being too sparkly and it blends well with other colors on your face - such as BB creams and blush.

Great bronzer

This bronzer has great color--not too orange or too dark. It works wonders on my medium complexion but may be a tad too dark on those with very fair skin.

Medium is great for lighter more fair skin tones...
Purchased

I am a light olive with yellow undertones and I got the medium. I have always shied away from bronzers in the past because they have bee too dark and make me feel like I look dirty. This one is perfect for me. One of the best I have ever used.

Also, I loath too much shimmer/glitter in my makeup and this has a slight sheen but that it is. I prefer a more matte look on my skin.

Nice Bronzer
Sampled

It looks better on than it does in the pan. I use it for contouring, and it looks pretty natural.

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.

natural wonder

Cargo rules! I love this bronzer - it feels and looks natural and not real heavy. I like that - don't look like you were in a dirty dust storm
