Wow! This is stunning! It looks incredible with a tan (or bronzer) and the matching lipstick. I use this blush as an eye shadow, an all-over brightener, and, of course, as blush. On me, the overall effect of the color is of a warm, glowy pink (probably close to what everyone-but-me gets from Nars Orgasm). I have to be careful not to put too much Tropics over the pores on my cheeks, because, over my Balance N Brighten, this can create a greasy, glittery effect. However, as long as I apply lightly over my pores, this blush is fantastic. The color scheme of the Tropics collection seems to be created for my coloring. It's so flattering, warming, and downright beautiful, I've "stocked" up on these products. I have warm olive skin that tans easily, and Tropics blush, on me, shows up as a vibrant, hibiscus pink. The lipstick, on my light red lips, is a rose-mauve-bronze. My mother has become hooked on the Tropics lipstick as well, but it looks very different on her cool, very pale fair skin. The lipstick looks more peachy-brown on her, but it's lovely. The Tropics blush does not work on her skin at all...it shows up as a bright, fake orange, that looks nothing like the actual product, or the lipstick. Bizarre. So Tropics is one of those products it's best to try before buying. If this does work for you, I'll bet you will fall head over heels for it. This is total "desert island" material for me. My Tropics blush definitely says "Made in Italy", and it lists the Netherlands as the European distributor of this New York-based brand. My blush is a full-sized product, with slightly less blush than has been contained in other Geller blushes, but this LE blush costs nearly $10.00 less than the "regular" line as well.
