When it comes to blush, one of the first brands that comes to mind for me is Cargo. Unlike Nars with their rubbery black packaging, Cargo blushes are packaged in a unique metal tin embossed with the Cargo name.
The blushes are quite generous in size, containing 9 g of product for US$24. Nars in contrast, contains only 4.54 g @ US$26 and MAC 6 g for US$22. In fact I didn't realise until writing this post that Nars gives you less than half the amount of what Cargo gives (?!)
Anyway, I picked up Catalina sometime last year from Nic's blog sale, and have not regretted it at all. Catalina is a soft matte baby pink, that warms up a bit on my (redness prone) complexion but remains neutral to cool toned on my forearm. Thus even if you have cooler toned skin the pink colour would probably stay quite cool toned as well.
Since it is a matte blush, and the pigmentation is on the lighter side, I find I can get more use out of it either on its own, or under highlighters / bronzers to get a slight flush. Here's a look with me wearing it on its own, with just some Emote to contour.
(Sorry for the tired look. I was...tired :P)
So have you tried Cargo blushes before? What's your current favourite blush?
