Marc Beauty has recently released five shades of Air Blush Duos that claim to be ultra light-weight and will leave skin with a natural looking radiant glow. I picked up one shade in Flesh & Fantasy from the Marc Jacobs website earlier this week. Flesh & Fantasy is described as a Goddess Bronze with Ivory Shimmer and the duo colors are created so that one can customize the two shades on the skin.
I noticed a slight red undertone with Goddess Bronze when applied atop my foundation. This is my first time using this product and wished I had used equal parts of the duo for both sides of my face. I leaned more toward Goddess Bronze at first hoping to use it as an all over bronzer for this look. As I moved on with my makeup I buffed both shades together on my left cheek and was more pleased with the results.
- Ivory shimmer (left swatch): delicate shimmer that is neither overpowering or dull. I tried using this as a highlighter alone. It did not create that ideal highlight for me but added the luminosity in conduction to Goddess Bronze.
- Goddess Bronze (center swatch): is simi-matte, sheer finish and reminds me of MAC’s blush in shade Harmony.
- Right swatch: both Ivory Shimmer and Goddess Bronze combined and blended.
First Impressions: For my skin tone I will lean less toward the bronze section of this blush duo. I think that the powders feel great on the skin: lightweight, indeed, and with both shades combined the radiance or glow was subtle and to my liking. The powders are very silky and therefore do ‘kick up powder’ in the pan which makes this product very blendable and very airbrushed in finish. Below are a few captures:

Have a great day/night!
