Year-round Winner: Nars Blush in Douceur

Nars Blush in Douceur

Douceur, in French it means sweetness and softness, is the name of one of the beautiful Nars blushes! As a matter of fact, douceur is the perfect word to describe this soft dusty brown-pink blush.

Nars Blush

It was first released as a limited-edition item from Nars fall 2010 makeup collection. It has quickly gained positive reviews and has become very popular. It's now part of Nars' permanent lineup.

I like my Nars Blush in Orgasm, which is a nice peachy pink with subtle shimmer. I love the pigmentation, color payoff and how it brings out the healthy-looking skin with a flush of color when my face is more tanned in the summer.

However, as my face returns to fair skin tone in winter, I need a cheek color that is light-pigmented and more soft-toned. Douceur is the shade that meets the requirements.

Nars Blush in Douceur is sheer-pigmented, and the color can be slowly built up to light-to-medium intensity for my fair skin tone. It gives a muted, matte and dusty finish with soft brown pink hues, which doesn't look overly pink, too cool or too warm on my cheeks.

One of the reasons that I love about this blush is the versatility of this shade. For people with pale to light skin tones, it is definitely a year-round shade for nearly all occasions when you need to tone down for a natural day look or to build up for a dramatic night look.
