NARS Creme Blush - Cactus Flower

Tester: West Indian (Jamaican) about Sanna Lathan’s complexion with combination/dry skin.

“If you have ever been to the south western part of the United States -- Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada e.g. then you have seen the beautiful cactus flora that abound there. This color really is a beautiful interpretation of these.

This is a unique poppy shade (pink, orange, peach, coral are all prominent shades within it) with touches of subtle gold shimmer running throughout. Really pretty.

I usually applied it with my blender sponge, but I also had good results with my fingers as well as my cream blush brush (MAC 169). I found the color could be built up nicely, and there was great pigment color payoff. The staying power was also phenomenal. There was no running or streaking. I also loved using it along with a bronzer.

It gave me a beautiful glow I played around with it using it also on my lips and eyes. On my lips I just added a little lip balm first as the formula is dry, and then topped it off with one of my favorite lip glosses, NARS Turkish Delight. It’s a color that is really sexy and sultry to me, while still being a little unexpected.

This shade instantly brightened up my entire face, giving me a healthy "coming-from-within" swash of color. This will work on a wide variety of skin tones, best up to a Serena Williams shade.“ L.V.

I'm in lovee with the colour of Cactus Flower and I really want to buy it but i'm concerned that it might not show up on my skin.
My skin colour is caramel, think Tyra Banks-ish.
My question is, will Nars Creme blush in Cactus Flower fit my skin tone?
