first up in my cargo blush collection: the big easy. i picked this shade up from sephora in jcpenney for $8 as cargo is currently on sale there. cargo is also sold in various online stores, such as beauty.com, apothica.com and beautybay.com if you were interested. they normally retail for $29.
the big easy is a light baby pink with a subtle silver sheen. it is a lighter color so i would say this is best suited for light to medium skin tones though tanned skinned ladies could still pull this off with some layering. on my skin (medium, leans warm) this color gives me a barely there pink tinge. i personally think this sort of shade pairs well with my skin tone as it easily brightens and looks very natural on. there is some sheen to the color but it isnt evident on the skin.
the texture of cargo blushes is one of my favorite things about the line. it is extremely soft and finely milled making blending extremely easy and fool proof. the product buffs into the skin seamlessly, especially with a color like the big easy. i prefer cargo's texture over nars if im being honest; nars can be a bit stiff!
i have nothing that is exactly like the big easy, thankfully. i thought deep throat was going to be very similar but it is a darker and pinker. mac's well dressed is much cooler. catalina is also cooler and much more vibrant.
the big easy is a great shade to own if you prefer foolproof natural blush shades. if you prefer more vibrant colors, you may want to look elsewhere. for me personally, the big easy is a shade that is absolutely necessary to have in a blush arsenal as it is so easy to wear and it goes with a lot of looks.
what do you think about the big easy? is it your sort of shade or too boring for your taste? until next post where i will talk about cargo's mendocino...
