CARGO Powder Foundation

After my less than successful attempt at picking out a new powder foundation from MUFE, I went back to Sephora last week and tried again. This time I spent a bit more time and tested out a few powders on my face before I purchased anything.

I ended up picking out a pressed powder compact foundation by CARGO. I've gotten used to using loose mineral powders but it is nice to have a compact that you can throw in your purse without getting everything messy. This particular one can be used wet or dry, but I've just tried it dry so far. I use a brush first and lightly cover my whole face to cut shine and even out the tone. Then I've been using the sponge that comes with it to cover any blemishes or other areas where I want a bit more coverage. So far I like it. The color I picked is good, 20, but I still need to use bronzer since my face is so much whiter than the rest of me. All in all, I'd recommend this as a good basic powder foundation and it comes in quite a few tones so you'll probably be able to find a good match. At $28 its not cheap, but not super expensive either.

Powder Lovely!

So how do you apply it? Just smooth it on? Or buff it on?
