Air is described as a "satin taupe." It's a light-medium beige with a hint of gray/brown in it and a frosted finish. It had good color payoff that had a very soft, buttery consistency and blended easily. The color wore well for eleven hours before fading slightly. MAC Fashion Beat (LE, $15.00) is darker. LORAC Navy #5 (LE) is darker, less shimmery. bareMinerals Ginger Sugar (LE, $14.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
