NARS Limited Edition Douceur Blush

For Fall 2010, NARS released one blush. The shade is "Douceur" ($26). It's described as a matte soft pink-brown. This is one of those really hard to describe colors. It does have a pink tone, but is tan at the same time. When I swatch it however, it doesn't even look very pink. One of the things I really like about this blush is that the NARS logo is engraved into the product itself, although it certainly will fade with usage.

The color itself is really lovely. I was skeptical at first, the color is very dusty and looks ho-hum in the pan. It isn't very pigmented, especially compared to its sisters. BUT, Douceur does mean "softness" in French. This blush is exactly that, a tool to achieve a very pretty soft look. I think it would work really well on those with lighter skin. Even though I have medium skin, I really like it. It's one of those shades that I can slap on as much as I want and just simply look like I have a healthy soft glow, without having heavily blushed cheeks. I'm a bit heavy handed, so this works great for me. A lot of people might not like it since it isn't quite pigmented, but I'm gonna go ahead and say this is near the top of my NARS blush list.

As you can see, it's a really hard color to swatch.

I highly recommend this if you have lighter skin, or if you have medium skin and a heavy hand and an interest in soft glowy cheeks =).
