The last few days have been a nightmare. 'Nightmare' might seem a little OTT to 'normal' people but for me and all of you a nightmare is exactly what it is. I had enough post's lined up to make sure I covered every single day this month. Even if I missed a day I could post twice the next day and it'd be even stevens but it wasn't to be - My Broadband decided to go down like a sack of spuds, I was net-less untill about 5 minutes ago. I honestly felt like I'd lost a limb, I didn't know what to do with myself. I was able to read post's via my phone but I couldn't comment which made it even worse. I did ring BT but they were about as useful as the applicators that come in cheap eyeshadow set's. Please tell me I'm not the only person who has a slight meltdown when they're cut off from the WWW. Anyway, onto the beauty that is Douceur.
Nars Douceur £21
Every once in a while a product finds it's way into my life (thanks Lina!) then into my make up bag, then on to my face everytime I wear make up. The title of this post tell's you exactly what product I'm referring to. 'Douceur' has been on my radar, and wish list for a good while now but if you've been reading my blog you'll know blush isn't at the top of my list. I can take it or leave it and more often than not I leave it.
Douceur is described as a ''soft, pink brown' on my skintone it works really well. It subtly sculpts and adds more shape to my round, chubby face. The shade is really natural. It isn't the most pigmented blush in the world but it adds just the right amount of colour to brighten/lift the face and makes a nice change from the usual shades of pink. I can wear any eye/lip colour and not have to worry if Douceur will clash - it goes with absolutely everything! I get a full 8 hours wear from Douceur which is another reason why I love it. I'm not one for fixing my make up halfway through the day, if I have to top up I won't use it (my only exception is lippy) if you have a light/medium skintone Douceur will suit you perfectly and if you're lazy like me you'll love it as it eliminates the need to apply blush and contour but of course you could still use both. Darker skintones might struggle with Douceur as it's so subtle. The texture isn't chalky in the slightest but you do get alot of fall-out around the pan. The packaging is slim and compact with a decent sized mirror. It takes up no space at all in my make up bag.
Douceur is my first blush from Nars and I'm really, really impressed. Do you own Douceur? What other shades would you recommend?
