NARS Douceur Blush Review

NARS Powder Blush in Douceur - ($28 / £21.50)
Disclaimer: Product purchased by me. Post includes affiliate links.
Hello, beauties! Hope you're doing very well! Today I'm reviewing a product I had seen on other blogs many times but never thought I would actually purchase. I always loved the look of Douceur but was stubbornly convinced that it wouldn't show up on me. However, I was in the market for a natural blush that would go with any makeup look. I decided to trust all the raves and got myself Douceur. It was a great decision and I truly love it! Here's a more in depth review:
Color
I would describe Douceur as a nude. It's pinker and warmer than a bronzer (although it does make a great "contouring blush shade") but not pinker than Tarte's Exposed Amazonian Clay blush. I actually sold Exposed in a blogsale and bought Douceur as a replacement. I found that I had to layer Exposed too much for it to show up on me which is what made me afraid Douceur would be the same. Douceur has better color pay off and it shows up on me immediately. I really think Exposed is more suitable for fair skin tones and Douceur is better for medium skin tones (like mine). Although if you're fair you can enjoy both, of course. But if you're above an NC30 you might find Exposed takes too much building up.
Formula
Douceur is silky and easy to blend. It also wears surprisingly long for such a light color. I know Orgasm is NARS's most popular shade, but I like Douceur's formula better. If I were to recommend a blush from NARS it would be this. It gives a really nice warmth and it's a safe matte finish.

    1. They are quite expensive, but I think most of their colors are worth the price tag. Although I remember they used to retail for $27. Now they're practically $30!

    1. Yeah, if you already have Exposed then I don't think you need this. They are very similar :)

  22. I've been thinking about Douceur for the longest time but had the same concerns as you that it wouldn't show up on me... you just convinced me otherwise!! :)

  26. This looks so dark in the swatch, I would probably stay far away from this color, but it looks beautiful on you- that maybe I should be giving these shades a chance.
    You look so pretty in that picture- like always!

  31. Were these photos taken with your new camera? They look amazing, well, you look amazing ^^ and this blush is gorgeous, is it a contour colour? is it a blush? It's both! So, so pretty. I love multifunctional products. I guess my NYX in Taupe is my Nars Douceur hehe xx

  32. Such a pretty blush! And your makeup looks perfect. It's a color I've always wanted to try, but on a recent trip to Sephora, I picked up Madly instead. I may have to go back for this one!

  33. I need this blush so bad. It looks absolutely stunning on you!!!! xx

  34. Douceur is such a pretty shade, it looks great on you! Thanks for the little tip about Exposed. I was really drawn to it when you reviewed it in one of your past posts but I was afraid it might not show up on me.

    Did you use your new camera to take these photos? I think I notice a difference!

  36. I had Tarte's exposed on my wish list for a while, but maybe now I'll check out Douceur instead. I always overlooked this blush for some reason. Thanks for sharing!

  39. Douceur looks like a tamer version of Dolce Vita, which I'm saving up for :) Since I already have three pretty wearable blushes, I thought I'd splash out on a more "party" shade! You look really good with Douceur - it definitely imparts the "my skin but better" kinda impression!

  40. Douceur is one of my all time favourites, it looks SO pretty on you! <3

  41. Thank you for this post. I am waiting for douceur in the mail. I've heard so many great things about it for lighter complexions, and I had the same worries as you. I can't wait to get my hands on it and write up my review :).

  43. This blush is definitely on my list! Love the look of douceur on you. It adds such a pretty flush, while at the same time being natural looking and subtle :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. It looks great on you! I have Orgasm and I love it, but I don't wear it as much as I'd like to... my own natural flush catches up with me by the end of the day and I'll end up looking rather like a tomato if I'm already wearing blush :(

  45. What a great shade it is! I need to get my hands on this ASAP :). Great review, I find it very useful.
    Great blog, girl :)!
