Cargo Oil Free Foundation Review (& day 8!)

Lately I have not been happy with the foundations that I’ve been using for the past five years.   And I think it’s because for the last year I’ve had an inside job  instead of an outside job!   I have alternated between MAC foundation in NC15 and Meow Foundation in Frisky Angora.

I saw a recommendation for this foundation for those of us who have very fair but yellow toned skin.   Typically you can’t find it sunny or yellow enough but this stuff seems to fit the bill.  It’s a little bit on the expensive side at $36 or so but I have really liked it so far.

It’s described on Ulta’s site:  “An oil-free ultra hydrating silky finish foundation by CARGO that offers the versatility of a sheer natural finish or a full coverage. The truly unique and innovative pouch packaging makes it easy to use, hygienic and highly portable!”

The color I got was F20 – sunny, translucent beige (very fair with peach undertone).   I did indeed find the color to be yellow based but also very warm and sunny.    If you are just a *touch* too light for MAC NC15, this would be perfect for you!

I took a photo of just the foundation and Evil Shades Devilista on my lips, there’s nothing else on my face.

And I also wore it here and I’m really liking it.

And here it is in a more dramatic look. It wore well all night!

I do find that this foundation has wear lasting qualities and it keeps looking good through an 8 hour work day AND yoga class.    It’s just sheer enough for daytime wear but it’s easy enough to build up to a more opaque coverage.  Although my skin isn’t oily per se, I like the finish to this foundation.   My skin still looks good and feels good at the end of the day.

The only complaints I have seen about the product is the packaging.   At first it’s a little cumbersome and I did lose a bit of the product at first but once I figured it out, it’s fine and totally worth the hassle.   The packaging *does* make for fabulous portability and ease for travel.

If you’ve got warm yellow but light complexion, you might want to give this line a shot!
