Carmine Alternative?

I've not been able to source carmine anywhere in New Zealand to use in Marie Rayma's Make It Up recipes. Marie recommends a Lake dye as a substitution that I've also not been able to find. I Googled images of carmine and matched the colour to this particular Lake. Today we made cream blush which is supposed to use a small amount of carmine - we must have quadrupled the amount of colour to get a blush-worthy hue. It is not the 1985 pink we were promised but it was the most gorgeous 'natural' looking dark dusky pink which worked beautifully as a lip balm also. I'm still on the lookout for carmine.
