We love a good two-in-one product (who doesn’t?), but we’re particularly smitten with this combination mattifying powder and bronzer. Why? The pressed powder absorbs excess oil and lends skin a silky finish, while the bronzer gives you a natural, sun-kissed glow. Plus, it comes in a sleek compact tin, complete with mirror and miniature powder brush for on-the-go touch ups.
At first I was not sure how a bronzer and pressed powder would go together but it actually blended well together. I love it, especially with summer coming. It helps give me a healthy glow while I am working on my summer tan. =)5
I was so excited to get this in my birchbox! Cargo always has amazing products and this is no different. My skin is super sensitive and usually turns bright red from most powders or foundations - I'm limited in what I can use. This is one of the exceptions. I also tend to flake on my forehead and nose when I use anything there because it cakes but I didn't have this problem either. I'm very pale skinned, and normally just wear a translucent tone-correcting powder that is in a rainbow of shades. It makes me look even paler but gets rid of the red spots. Well, I was able to go over it with the Cargo Hybrid, and found that with a light hand the bronzer was a perfect match for me. (I tried it on a friend who has a much darker complexion and it looked great on her too!) The powder side got rid of the oil that builds on my chin and cheeks and left me with silky, soft skin. And the whole package was a perfect size to throw in my purse for touch-ups. It really did work to touch up oily or hot/misty skin throughout the day. I looked fresh as a daisy after I used it and it never had a sense of weird build-up like some powders do.
I love the included mini-brush, too. I used a bigger one at home but on the go the mini one actually works quite well and is high quality, not cheap material that falls out or doesn't spread product evenly. Even the tin that it comes in is nice! Cargo really does make some great products and I'm just thrilled to be able to try out something as perfect as this Hybrid powder. It's going right on my favorites
This product came in my first Birchbox. I was pleasantly surprised :) it goes on so smooth the the brush applicator, not cakey at all. The bronzer provides such a soft glow. This will defiantly be on my permanent list of go to products. Thanks again Birchbox!5
I have very light colored skin so the bronzer is too dark for me, however the mattifying powder seriously is the best thing I've ever used. My skin is very dry in the mornings but by the afternoon I'm a shiny mess - the mattifying powder prevents that from happening and then if it's really hot I put on more and it goes away. It is absolutely amazing.5
