Cargo PlantLove™ Baked Illuminator

January. It's the time of year when any remaining sun and life from summer seem to have migrated from my face to Florida. Bronzer seems too harsh for winter, and blush doesn't enliven enough. But a couple weeks ago, I discovered a lovely marriage. Well, it's more like a polygamous marriage: Cargo PlantLove™ Baked Illuminator—a bronzer, blush and highlighter in one.

Pretty factor:
The blend of eight-hour-baked terra cotta colors give a natural-looking Palm Beach warmth. Moisturizing and fatty acid-rich oils from sunflower, grape seed, and rosehip prevent that chalky appearance common to some mineral makeup. Available in three shades: "Fire" (shown here) for fair skin tones, "Wind" for medium tones, and "Earth" for dark tones.

Skim your brush lightly around the entire pot—a little goes a long way

Eco factor:
No parabens, petrochemicals, phthalates, or synthetic fragrance or dyes. Comes in a cool biodegradable box.

To buy:
$28 at Sephora and sephora.com
