Escape to Coral Beach
If you're not the type to don a nicely hued highlight during fall and winter, now's the perfect time to indulge or add one (or two) to your stash of face products. Besides the usual bronzes and golds, there are many that echo warmer, playful shades that play well across all skin tones. I'd like to share with you one that happens to comprise four fetching colors that can be applied separately or all together. I'm talking about CARGO's BeachBlush in Coral Beach.
Coral Beach is one of six shades CARGO offers in its BeachBlush line, which combines the benefits of blush and bronzer in one convenient product. Like most of their cheek products, it comes in a tin about the size of your palm and is filled to the brim with four gorgeous strips of complementary shades that can be swirled together to create one.
The first color (starting from the right) is a light, golden peach shade.
The next one over is a pale pink.
The one next to the pale pink is a deep, copper-coral.
And the shade to the far left is a coppery, bronze-brown.
Every finely milled shade is highly pigmented, easy to apply and a breeze to blend out to your desired intensity. The finish is a mid-frost and there is not one speck of glitter in sight.
Combining all the colors together will yield a soft, peachy coral that is ab fab! With this on your apples and perhaps a darker bronzer as a contour, you will be set for the day with a radiant beach bunny glow.
If you're not too much a fan of corals and oranges, one of the other BeachBlushes may be more to your liking. However, if you are partial to such shades then this is right up your alley. Besides, you're getting like five blushes in one product! I don't know about you, but that's considered a great deal of a steal in my book. Just sayin'...
CARGO Coral Beach BeachBlush is available at Ulta and beauty.com, and retails for $30.
