Tarte Exposed vs NARS Douceur
Today I wanted to put out a comparison of these two blushes because before I actually purchased it myself, I wanted to see comparison swatches of the two. I found that pretty hard to do. People would tell me it was similar or different but no one actually had pictures to prove it. I, for one, am a visual person. I need to see it with my own eyes. YES I could have gotten my tush down to Sephora and compared the two, but I just don't go to the mall that often. I prefer to do my shopping from home (or swapping)!
Tarte describes Exposed as being a Nude and they don't go much further into the color description than that. In my opinion it is much more than any old nude color--it is a beautiful rosy pink with a hint of brown. The flush that this gives your cheeks is just stunning.
Nars describes Douceur as a "Soft pink-brown" and their color description is PERFECT. I couldn't add or take anyway any descriptive words. I am not sure why this finger swatch came off peachy. It is much darker in real life.
Comparing the 2 side by side, they almost look the same color one is just a tad darker than the other. They both go on the cheek beautifully and they both blend like a dream. I do think they very similar but different enough (in my opinion) to own both.
I hope you found this compare and contrast post helpful. Swatches are what make me more comfortable with online purchases and if I have helped just one person make up their mind on a purchase then I have done my job! <3
Thanks for looking!
