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!)

What an impressive wear time! I used to be a side sleeper, but I’ve trained myself to sleep on my back ( causes less wrinkles and improves drainage), so I’m tempted to test out the 24 hr claim LOL I wasn’t considering this color, but I like the extra long wear and how you can get 3 distinct colors out of this.

This is the ONE for me. Absolutely perfect for my warm olive complexion to add something life giving to what can sometimes look like a dull, sallow face. Yes, this is on my “to get wishlist”!

My Kinks & Kisses just arrived today. I’m looking forward to trying it tomorrow! Now wondering if this shade is better for me. LOL!

This looks so gorgeous on you that despite us having completely different coloring, I’m trying to figure out a way for it to work for me. Keep this blush in your rotation!

So many blushes, so few cheeks!
This is lovely, going on the wishlist, I’ll have to see what other beauties you’ve reviewed during my days off the net. Exciting, the poor list might grow very long 🙂

Very pretty. I think Rosy Pop would be better for my fair skin but 18 hours of wear is impressive. Blush is one of the things that fades on me easier than other things. My cheeks are dry so I guess my skin just eats it.

The wear is truly impressive with this formula!

Interesting that you feel like your dry skin eats blush – I feel like I normally hear that from oily skin types!
