Cargo’s new Blu_Ray High Definition collection is supposed to perfect the beauty woes of actors subject to the pore-revealing rigors of HD video. That means that it also should work pretty well for the average makeup moxie…right?
Because Cargo’s “designed-for-HD” makeup smacks of masterful marketing, I decided to put the collection’s High Definition Mattifier to the test.
With its promises to refine pores, minimize lines, and mattify skin, Blu_Ray High Definition Mattifier definitely sounds like my kind of product. But does it work?
Yes, and it delivers instant gratification. While this liquid mattifier can be used over or under your makeup, I particularly like using this gel as a primer before applying my foundation.
A little of this gel smoothed over bare (or freshly moisturized) skin immediately blurs pores and fine lines while refining the skin’s texture for smoother foundation application.
Furthermore, this mattifier staves off the oilies for hours without looking the least bit chalky.
Such mattifying power, however, comes at a price. Though HD Mattifier’s perfecting abilities are addictive enough that you’ll want to apply it everywhere, this gel will emphasize any dry areas and make them appear flakey.
That means that those with combo skin will want to confine use of this product to shiny areas while dry skin types will probably want to look elsewhere for a skin primer.
But for those who deal with very oily skin and enlarged pores, I highly recommend this stuff.
Has anyone else tried Cargo Blu Ray High Definition Mattifier yet? What do you think of it?
