Let me explain: I've been searching for a nice nude blush for a while now. I've come close to finding "The One" but all of them fell short- too pink, too peach, too brown, too orange.
But Douceur is love- a soft pink-brown that's almost sheer because it's so light. I'll go ahead and warn you, I don't think it'll show up on tanner and darker skin tones. But if you're a pale beauty looking for a slight, impossible to mess up natural flush Douceur is for you.
Again I repeat, if you're looking for a bright, pigmented pop of color, stay away. Don't even look at this blush's direction. For the first time ever, the NARS logo is etched into the blush pan, in delicate double lines that disappear the first time you use the blush.
Now he's the funny part, the blush is almost matte. True, if you squint at it closely, you do see a faint shimmer, but it's not discernible once on my skin. However, I have seen swatches of this blush online that look quite shimmer, I don't know why there's swatching discrepancy. The Douceur I tried in store wasn't shimmery either, beats me.
