My favorite eyeshadow primer is Too Faced Shadow Insurance, not Urban Decay primer potion.
If I have money to buy a luxury car, it would be from Audi, not from BMW nor Mercedes..
Just like that, I like Cargo blush better than NARS...
Maybe I like anything that is a bit underdog..or I don't like anything that is most popular of its kind..I don't know. ;p
Amalfi is a beautiful town in Italy, that much I know, and of course in this case it is the name of this fresh pink colored blush from Cargo. :)
Amalfi is a fairly new addition to the Cargo blush range.
It is a cool-toned bright pink with silvery shimmer that shows up glowy not glittery once applied on your cheeks. It is interesting because the shimmer is quite noticeable in the pan and you can definitely see it when swatched on arm.

Closest color in the same range would be the famous Catalina which is a matte ballerina pink.
Amalfi is cooler and brighter than Catalina, and the shimmery finish also makes a difference.
This blush is excellent in quality and the color is very flattering for me.
It blends well without much effort and the color shows up vivid but sheer.
(Don't be scared! ^-^)
I also like that it doesn't turn into some reddish unrecognizable color and it stays on for long hours.
I have seen some reviews complaining about the packaging (it's not easy to open..?), but I don't have any problem and frankly I even love that it come in a tin. (I have a thing for pretty tins. ^-^)
Cargo blush retails $26 in the U.S. and it will last forever since a tin contains whopping 8.9 grams of blush. (that is more than double of what NARS gives...)
Here I am recycling one of my recent FOTDs to show how this color looks on me. ;)
