Swatch | NARS Blush in Douceur
Apart from lipstick, I also like to hoard blushers. A couple of weeks ago, I wanted to buy Illamasqua's Maneater as a little treat for myself. Who doesn't need another red lipstick right? By the way, the swatch for that will be up soon. I had to order Maneater online since they no longer had it at Sephora. I'm not sure how this happened, but I somehow convinced myself that I needed to order something else so that I could qualify for free shipping and save money. On that particular day, that made sense to me.
I really didn't know what to get so I decided on a new blusher. But then I didn't know which blusher to get so I perused through Steffi's blog to see if I could get any ideas. I stumbled upon her August Favorites and fell in love with her description of Douceur. I had to have it so it went right in my cart.
The blush retails for $30 at Sephora and I honestly didn't realize until now just how expensive it is. I mean for blush, really? I was on something else that day I purchased this...
I like to think of Douceur as a happy medium between pink and brown. It's not quite peach either, though it looks like it in the picture above. I've been using it everyday for the past couple of weeks and I've found that it works really well for contoruing. To me, it looks much more natural than actual contouring powder. It's also long lasting on my oily skin, which is always a plus. I give this blusher 2 very enthusiastic thumbs up!
