Product Review: Cargo 100% Natural Origin Baked Illuminator

Reviewer: Suziesaurus

Brand: Cargo PlantLove
Name: 100% Natural Origin Baked Illuminator
Size: 10 g / 0.35 oz
Price: $28 CAD

Shade Tried: Fire

Another environmentally and organic product brought to you by Cargo Cosmetics.

From Sephora's website: "A stunning mixture of three pretty shades of blush, bronzer, and highlighter in one. PlantLove Baked Illuminator features three shades in one to give your cheeks and body an all-over warmth and glow."

To Purr About:
- blends blush, bronzer and shimmer into 1 convenient product
- you get a lot of product in that huge compact
- very light feeling

Claws Out:
- the scent reminded me of cardboard
- a bit too orange for my complexion
- not convenient to carry around (no application tool and compact is quite large)
- can be a bit heavy if you’re not careful applying

Final Comments:
When I first applied this product it looked very 'fake-tan' to me. I realized quickly that a very little goes a long way and it is very easy to go completely overboard if you're not careful with how much you have on your brush. Once I got the hang of it I started liking it. I had to get a bit used to the smell, but after it’s applied you don’t really notice it at all – it’s only during application that I noticed an odd scent.

I think it will definitely be a nice product to have in the spring and summer seasons as it gave my skin a nice glow and shimmer to it and was quick to throw on before I ran out the door – a one step solution.

I think next time I will definitely try the Wind colour palette as it is supposed to be more terracotta and champagne hued which might suit my skin.

Rating (out of 5):

This is what I wanted to try! I got the bronzer and some shadows. My video review will be up on Friday. I like the shadows:)
