Wow! As a South Indian, I have a really difficult time finding a blush that is dark enough to even show up, let alone warm enough to be a realistic color. Occasionally, I will use a little lipstick, which then makes my skin break out the next day. This beat all my expectations: really rich, saturated color with a tone that actually looks like a natural flush. Be careful though: unlike other brands which you have to pour on to even be visible, a little goes a long way with this! And it doesn't just blend away if you put on too much (which is actually what makes this fantastic).
