This is probably NARS least pigmented blush, but I don’t see this as a bad thing, in my NC20 skin it can be easily built to a natural color that defines my cheekbones like no other. This is my go-to blush when I want to look polished. It pairs beautifully with a red lip. I like to apply it with MAC 109 or 168, I find them good to build the color. And when I want the no make-up look, I can pretend I have cheekbones by using it lightly.
NARS Douceur Blush ($28.00 for 0.16 oz.) is described as a “soft pink brown.” It’s a subtly warm-toned light-medium brown with a pinky sheen. It does look a bit pinker in the pan than on my skin tone (which has yellow undertones), so if you have pink undertones, you might see those pink undertones come through on you more than they did on me. Tarina Tarantino Neopolitan Lane is similar, though a bit more pigmented and matte in finish. MAC Pressed Amber is darker, browner. MAC Darkly My Dear is darker, slightly more plum. Tarte Exposed is pinker. MAC Her Own Devices is lighter, kind of peach. MAC Prim & Proper is darker and more plum.
