Blush Crush #5: NARS Douceur

The thing with having medium-toned skin is that a lot of the times, bright blushers can look garish. I do love my fair share but it's quite difficult to pull them off in the winter time (and let's face it, we're pretty much still in winter here in the UK). So I've been looking for a nice, muted, dusty blush for a while and the one I settled on and have not put down for three whole months now, is the coveted..

NARS Douceur



First of all, we all know I love NARS blushers, so I'll keep the formula rave sweet and short. It's smooth, it's blendable, it lasts, it has the right level of pigmentation - boom, done.

The packaging, I also love. I haven't had the misfortune of melting plastics nor powders exploding in the vicinity of my NARS blushers so thankfully the dirty is limited to my manky fingerprints (mm lovely). I just love how compact it is, and how it comes with a mirror.

Now on to the juicy bit - the colour. For fair-skinned ladies like Meg from Lips So Facto, it pulls a gorgeous peach with a tinge of brown and she uses as a sculpting blush. For the medium-skinned like myself, while it retains the sculpting qualities from the browny tones, it seems to pull slightly pinker. You can see it in action here.

The reason why I've loved it so much is that it's so understated. Unlike my NARS Orgasms, Torrids or Tarte Blissfuls, it's very understated. I'm a heavy blush user so sometimes the blusher could be the centre piece but with Douceur, it's like the LBD - so simple and understated but absolutely stunning.

  1. I have this! I adore the colour but or me it isn't very pigmented which is annoying for such an expensive product!
    One of my faves though, the shade is to die for xx

  6. I want to try Douceur but I already own Exposed which is pretty comparable. I've heard Douceur is more pigmented/deep which is great for medium skintones like yours then! x Still winter here too in the States boo!
