Round-up: Marc Jacobs Air Blush

Marc Jacobs Air Blush
Marc Jacobs Air Blush

Marc Jacobs Beauty Air Blush ($42.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a real winner across the board. I think it actually comes pretty close to living up to its 24-hour claim, which I was completely surprised by. I wore three of the five shades twice to test wear, because the length of wear and strength of wear caught me off guard. The formula also lives up to its buildable coverage and color claims, as each shade can be lighter or darker, depending on whether you lean to the left or right of the compact or just swirl altogether. The pigmentation is solidly medium and buildable, but the silky, smooth texture makes it forgiving and easy to sheer out or build-up without it looking powdery or caked on the skin. Boy, these are like night and day compared to the brand’s original blush range.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Night Fever & Hot Stuff (508) Air Blush
Marc Jacobs Beauty Night Fever & Hot Stuff (508) Air Blush

Marc Jacobs Beauty Night Fever & Hot Stuff (508) Air Blush ($42.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a medium-dark pink with subtle, warm undertones and a luminous sheen. The lighter shade is a light-medium pink with very subtle blue undertones, while the deeper shade was a rosy plum; each shade seemed similarly shimmery. Sephora Love Sick (22) (P, $14.00) is less shimmery, darker (95% similar). Clinique Rosy Pop (P, $21.00) is lighter (95% similar). Chanel Rosewood (350) (P, $45.00) is less shimmery, cooler (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Bicoastal (Bottom) (LE) is more shimmery, darker (90% similar). MAC Red Water Lily (LE, $40.00) is less shimmery, brighter (90% similar). theBalm Houndstooth (P, $22.00) is lighter (90% similar). Tarte Fetching (LE, $28.00) is darker, more muted (90% similar). Tarte Fearless (P, $28.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Warmhearted (LE, $28.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Subtle Breeze (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). NYX Peach (P, $5.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (90% similar). By Terry Tan & Flash Cruise #1 (LE) is brighter (90% similar). Too Faced Your Love is King (P, $26.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Chanel Rose Initiale (P, $45.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Hysterical (LE, $8.00) is less shimmery, cooler (85% similar). Makeup Geek Love Affair (P, $9.99) is less shimmery, darker, warmer (85% similar). Chanel Crescendo (250) (LE, $45.00) is less shimmery, lighter, brighter (85% similar). Chanel Revelation (63) (DC, $38.00) is lighter, glossier (85% similar). NARS Impudique (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery, darker, brighter (85% similar). Maybelline Just Pinched Pink (10) (P, $8.99) is warmer (85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

According to the brand, Air Blush is supposed to offer buildable coverage with a “luminous finish” that wears for “24-hours.” Each shade consists of a lighter and deeper shade, designed to be used together (each section of product is quite narrow, so it’s not feasible to use a blush or highlighting brush to get a single color). In general, I found the lighter color to have more shimmer/luminosity and acted as the “highlighting” shade within the palette, even though some variations are such that both shades are more blush-like in color and depth. Please note: It’s pretty hard to test a cheek product for 24-hours, since inevitably, most of it will end up on my sheets if I go to sleep, and I can’t tell you if or when I’ve ever pulled an all-nighter on purpose. To that end, I am rating by considering how it looked and what (if any) break down of product occurred between 14 and 18 hours of wear and then extrapolating to determine a “final” wear-time.

Night Fever & Hot Stuff is the darkest/deepest shade in the range. It had more semi-opaque coverage, which was easily built-up to opaque coverage. I think the soft, smooth, and lightweight texture made it easy to diffuse and soften the color for sheerer coverage, if desired, as well, but it seemed to have more pigmentation from the get-go than other shades in the range, though all of them were buildable for me. As the color was blended on the skin, the finish became more and more luminous, which gave it a nice sheen but didn’t magnify pores or the skin’s natural texture on me. This shade seemed to be the best-wearing, as I really couldn’t even detect any changes after 18 hours of wear, though I certainly tried to nitpick and find even the barest hint of fading throughout the day!

Worth noting, during July, 25% of sales of Air Blush will be donated to amfAR when purchased through Marc Jacobs Beauty. (I wouldn’t use it as an excuse to purchase something you’re not interested in but would consider purchasing directly vs. through another retailer if you were planning to buy. I have ordered direct from MJB a few times, and they have always packed well and shipped efficiently–no complaints!)

Flesh & Fantasy is the lightest/most muted shade in the range. It had medium coverage, which could be built-up to opaque coverage in two to three layers. The texture was soft, smooth, and a little dusty when I worked with it, but luckily, this did not translate on the skin. It still applied well, blended out easily, and produced a natural sheen that added luminosity but did not emphasize pores or look metallic on my skin. On me, it was still looking very much intact even after 18 hours of wear.

Kink & Kisses had semi-opaque color payoff that was buildable to opaque coverage or easily applied with a light-to-medium hand for sheerer coverage. The consistency was very soft, smooth, and silky on the skin, while the blush blended out with little effort. It had a soft sheen that gave my skin a natural glow, but it didn’t emphasize my skin’s natural texture or read as shimmery. This shade was still going exceptionally strong after 18 hours of wear (as long as I could wear it before needing to sleep!).

Lines & Last Night had medium, buildable coverage that had a soft, airy consistency that wasn’t powdery, but it was very smooth, silky, and blendable on the skin. The blush applied beautifully and was easy to work with without emphasizing pores or the skin’s natural texture. Despite obsessively checking (more so than usual!) for signs of wear and tear, it was still going strong after 16 hours of wear, and even after 18 hours (at the last check-in), it seemed like it appeared a little less smooth near the inner area of my cheeks (closest to my nose).
