Nars Douceur Blush

OK, so here's the deal: this blush is strictly limited edition. We mention this because if, like us, those 6 syllables send your body racing with thoughts of "What if it's the best blusher ever? Will I need to stock up? If so, how long do I stock up for? A year? 5 years? The rest of my life? I can't afford to stock up on a blusher for the rest of my life..." then hopefully this review with give you some sense of comfort.

That is, unless it makes you want it even more.


Douceur is a sheer gorgeous soft pink mixed with light brown undertones. Definitely less pigmented than the vast majority of Nars' blushes, what this product may be lacking in depth is certainly made up for in it's incredible quality. Unbelievably smooth to apply, this powder is swiftly layered from a barely-there-subtle appearance, to a slightly punchier flushed effect.


Although the colour may come across as quite pink when presented in the pan, once swatched it translates into a more neutral, if somewhat dirty looking tone. Don't let that put you off, though - just one swish really makes the skin glow and works to create a truly natural healthy effect.

Nars Douceur blush swatched

As expected the colour holds up extremely well throughout the day and the divine matte finish sits equally beautifully over a cream or powder base. However, the depth of the blush means this is possibly a product more suited for pale to medium skintones. The dustiness of the formula makes it hard to build an intense effect which could render the product almost useless on certain complexions. Because of this, we highly recommend you swatch in store.


Nars Douceur blush applied to cheeks

All in all, this is an extremely lovely blush. We're pretty smitten because, quite simply, it's a very, very beautiful shade. If you like subtle, delicate, neutral blushers then this is definitely one to check out.

This will no doubt - and certainly deserves to be - a much welcomed addition to many make up collections.

Nars Douceur Blush is available at counters worldwide and narscosmetics.co.uk for £19.50

I'm NC44 and it gives me a beautiful and very natural flush on me. I've uploaded a vid to YouTube with me wearing it and applying more on so if anyone is interested in how it might look on a person of colour, here is my link;http://www.youtube.com/user/dianeuk01#p/a/u/1/Dt96w1G4vBQ

Apologies if I'm not supposed to put a link on here, please feel free to delete if I've overstepped the mark.

That's fantastic! We were chatting with the Nars MUA and he said a lot of customers had really struggled with the colour, but it looks absolutely gorgeous on you. Thank you so much. xx

Hi, the blusher looks really gorgeous on you. I am planning to go and look/purchase (!) this blush in London tomorrow. I wonder if you could tell me what you are wearing on your lips because it looks gorgeous with the blush and I would love to copy the combination! Thanks!

@Rachael - that's actually my natural lip colour, I'm afraid. I know Chanel do a shade that's very similar, but I can't remember the name. : (
Have fun shopping. I hope you like the blush in the flesh - it's very pretty indeed! xxx

Douceur blush looks absolutely gorgeous on you! I have med-dark skin tone and it gives me the most natural glow. The subtle effect is perfect for a heavier eye.
