Adventures at Cosmoprof North America: Doucce Cosmetics

Press Sample

Good morning, dear readers! I hope this post finds you well! For today's blog post, I wanted to share with you a new-to-me brand that I discovered while I was at Cosmoprof North America in Las Vegas this summer. I have to admit that I had never even heard of Doucce Cosmetics prior to the convention, but I was certainly intrigued when I stopped by their booth. Let's check out some photos I took while there! 
Doucce Cosmetics has a beautiful assortment of eyeshadows! You could pick out your own individual shades to design your ideal palette, or they have pre-arranged quads for purchase. I'm not sure which way I would go; as much as I love putting together my own combinations, they do have some fantastic combinations that I have my eye on!
Check out these blushes and foundations! They do look lovely although there is no way these shades cover the range of skin tones out there!
I love the colours of these lipsticks!

I was sent home with two Doucce Cosmetics products to try: an eyeliner and a lipstick. I've been testing them out and have my thoughts on them below. Read on for my thoughts on the products I tested!

Ultra Precision Eye Liner
Color | 1 | Black

The ultimate precise waterproof pencil eyeliner. The velvety smooth formula glides on smoothly without pulling or tugging, creating an easily blended finish. The semi-matte waterproof formula is perfect for use in the waterline. Once it sets, it will not smear, flake, or budge. As the tip begins to fade, follow through with a metal makeup sharpener to keep the tip sharpened and precise.

Mineral Matt Lipstick
Color | 911 | Pumpkin Pie

A pure color lipstick that glides on effortlessly giving you a rich and velvet matte finish. Infused with SPF 10 and Vitamin E, application gives off a soft texture, leaving your lips hydrated all day with a non-drying effect. Maximized color impact that provides a full-bodied coverage with incredible pigmentation. Exceptionally long wear formula that won’t feather or fade away.

Ultra Precision Eye Liner - Mineral Matt Lipstick

Apparently I never actually took a close-up photo of my eye liner application. Oops! Sorry about that, dear readers! I don't wear eye liner from pencils often because my eyes are sensitive to a little bit of tugging, and I was pleasantly surprised to see how well this eye liner goes on. It is so creamy and smooth! It also has pretty impressive lasting power, especially if you set it with eyeshadow. It has become my go-to black eyeliner, and that is certainly saying a lot!


While I felt a lot of love for the eye liner, I must admit that I loathed this lipstick. While the colour is fantastic, this lipstick is so dry that I felt like I was mashing a crayon against my lips in order to get it on, and it does not feel pleasant on the lips at all. I expect mattes to be a little on the drier side, but after reading it would leave my lips hydrated all day, I was hoping for so much more. I cannot speak for the other shades, but based on my experience with this one, I'm no longer feeling optimistic about these lipsticks.

This was my final simple look using these products from Doucce. I did add a lip gloss over the lipsticks so my lips would stop hurting.

Final Thoughts
I have very mixed feelings about this brand. I love the eye liner and recommend it over any other eye liner I have ever tried. On the other hand, the lipstick left a lot to be desired, to say the least. In the end, it seems to be the same as any other cosmetic brand. You have some winning products that come with glowing reviews and then there are those that disappoint. I'm still curious about their eyeshadows and other lipsticks and glosses.

Have you tried Doucce Cosmetics? What was your experience like? Is there a particular product you love? I'd love to hear from you!

Until next time, dear readers, have a wonderful day!
XO!

  7. I have a few of their lipsticks that aren't bad, so I'm wondering if they changed their formula? Ugh, so disappointing because it's such a pretty color on you

  8. That lipstick color is great on you. Too bad the formula was blah.
