Cargo Cosmetics Bronzers Help Maintain Your Summer Look

I love using bronzer as it adds both depth and dimension to my face. I use it along my jawline, under my cheekbones, at the bottom portion of my nose and all along my forehead where it meets my hairline. Winter is coming and luckily Cargo Cosmetics Bronzers are a wonderful go-to product.

These award-winning bronzers offer a sheer and easily blendable texture. They are available with a touch of shimmer for a built in highlight or you can opt for the matte finish. It's up to you as it should be!


· Light Reflective Mica – Finely milled shimmer particles that give a soft and iridescent quality (exclude in shade Matte Medium)

· Vitamin E – Helps skin fight the damaging effects of the environment while providing moisture

Pro Tip: Use shade Medium Matte for contouring, shade Dark for the hollows of the cheeks and jawline, and shade Medium to contour the nose

SHADES: Medium, Matte Medium & Dark

PRICE: $29

AVAILABILITY:, select Kohl's Departments Stores and

Fashion x Function: Blazon Hairbrush Collection

Blazon, you have my attention and I love your line of fashionable and functional hair brushes! These are the type of brushes you want to put on display rather than throwing them under the sink. They are packaged beautifully well and their unique look allows them to stand out from the other brushes you may already own. I applaud the company for producing such a creative product.

Blazon’s debut hairbrush collection will make you want to showcase your hairbrush for everyone to see- on your vanity, in your back pocket, on your desk, the possibilities are endless.

The Diamond Bezel Hairbrush Collection features emblematic designs that make a statement with graphic patterns embedded into the brush uppers. The patent-pending hexagon bristle array provides increased brushing coverage, making the hairbrush ideal for diverse hair textures.

With care and aesthetic at the forefront of each design, the Blazon hairbrush comes with a matching traveling case and stand. Each collection is limited edition with Blazon offerings being introduced every 3-4 months.

The entire kit (brush, stand and case) retails for $60 however there is an option to purchase just the hairbrush for $40.

Blazon is bridging the gap between functional, stylish accessories and street culture.
