Cargo Swimmables Blush in Ibiza

The weather has been really nice here in Ottawa, the sun has been shining, and the temperature just keeps rising! While I absolutely love the hot weather, I don't love having my makeup melt off midday. I've been testing out Cargo's Swimmables Blush in Ibiza* ($29 CAD/11g), which promises to be water resistant and long-wearing.

"This longwearing formula withstands perspiration so you don’t have to fuss with reapplication while micronized light diffusers work to ensure a gorgeously natural, non-shiny glow. CARGO Swimmables Blush delivers an effortless summer glow that stays put rain or shine – perfect while lying poolside, spending the day at the beach or just being outdoors on a hot day. The silky smooth texture layers easily for added intensity as desired. Paraben-Free." - Murale

Cargo's Swimmables Blush in Ibiza comes packaged in Cargo's classic metal tins. These tins hold a massive 11 grams of product - for comparison, Smashbox's Blush Rush contains 3.7g, Clinique's Cheek Pops contain 3.5g, and NARS blushes contain 4.8g. This blush will last you years and years, even with daily use. The lid easily pops off, and the blush is housed inside without a brush or mirror. Ibiza is a beautiful bright pink with soft silver shimmer. This shade is slightly sheer, but it can also easily be built up for a more intense colour. I love this, since I can decide how bold i want my blush to be, depending on my mood, eye makeup, etc.

The formula of Cargo's Swimmables Blush is soft, smooth, and creamy. This formula looks as though it's baked in the pan, but it still has a very smooth consistency. Although this formula is marketed as being waterproof and long-wearing, I only get 8 hours of wear out of Ibiza before I need to touch up. 8 hours isn't too shabby for a powder blush, but I was expecting a little bit more out of a water resistant formula.

Cargo's Swimmables Blush in Ibiza is a very pretty cool toned pink blush with a subtle silver shimmer. I do wish that the wear time was a bit longer, but 8 hours is still acceptable. Have you tried any products from Cargo's Swimmables line? Do you like to use water resistant products in the hot Summer months?

  1. It's very lovely pink on you, wondering how it's waterproof though?? I mean stains or creams I can see being waterproof.

  6. I want some of Cargo's blushes! I was in a Murale a few months back and managed to swatch a few. While this shade isn't quite up my alley, I'm already planning on buying another one of their blushes--'Rome'! I do wonder about the science behind the waterproof claims though...
