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:
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.
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.
