Isn't it hot this summer? I know it is here in central Texas and with that said wearing foundation becomes less motivating because of the heat. So, I had to come up with a solution because I still like to wear foundation to even out my skin tone during the days I want to wear makeup, however I did not want to have my skin weighed down. My solution? My new favorite, Cargo SPF 20 Tinted Moisturizer! If you watch me on youtube you may have noticed that I mentioned this foundation a lot but have not done a full review for you yet. Well, with everything I like to wear new foundations for a while before I share.
I have been wearing my new summer favorite, Cargo SPF SPF 20 Tinted Moisturizer for over a month and I love it!! This product absorbs quickly into my skin, goes on super smooth, and long lasting. In addition to that it also moisturizes my skin well made my skin feel soft with out feeling greasy and it also protects my skin from premature aging! What more could a girl ask for, lol. The packaging is very sleek and easy to use!
More about what they say about this product:

Nude – for women who wear Cargo Liquid Foundation F-20 to F-45
Honey – for women who wear Cargo Liquid Foundation F-45 to F-70
Tan – for women who wear Cargo Liquid Foundation F-60 to F-90
Pros: Feels fabulous on the skin and you can even set it a powder! It Has an SPF 20 (20X 10= 200 minutes of protection out side) Non greasy, and offers some coverage!
Cons: The price $32. Only available in 4 shades. They say that Tan are for skintones from F60 to F90? I would be worried about putting this tone on my deeper skintone sistas out there with worries of the ashy look. I think Cargo should come up with one more shade darker.
What the tinted moisturizer looks like on. My shade is Tan, I am NC42 in mac.
Now, after apply this product I did notice that the color set to be a bit deeper than my complexion. So in order to neutralize it I decided to of course apply concealer to the needed areas of my face. For those that are curious I wear MAC studio finish concealer in NW35. After that I used my Make up Forever Duo Mat Powder (My shade in MUFE is 207 in Duo MAT) on top. The MUFE powder is a shade lighter than my skin, so it was perfect to use with this tinted moisturizer to balance of the color when wearing this product.
This product can be found at Ulta.com or any Sephora Inside JCPenney Store. Sephora Freestanding does not carry Cargo any longer. Overall great brand and I would recommend anyone to try this awesome product!!
