MAC Naked Honey

Mac's Naked Honey is a rather small collection comprised of two beauty powders, three eyeshadows, two "creations" (fragrances), three lipglasses, two body scrubs, and one hand salve.

Here are all the details, then I will review:
Lipglass (LE) - $14.00USD/$16.50CDN

  • She’s a Star - Light neutral gold (Repromote from Dress Camp)
  • Queen Bee - Mid-tone apricot with multi-dimensional pearl
  • Buzz - Dark copper brown with multi-dimensional pearl

Eyeshadow (LE) - $14.50USD/$17.00CDN

  • Crème de Miel - Frosty light yellow gold
  • Pollinator - Mid-tone warm reddened peach with pearl
  • Buckwheat - Dark copper brown with multi-dimensional pearl

High-Light Powder (LE) $24.50USD/$29.50CDN
A high-light powder specially created for the Naked Honey Collection. Features an embossed honeycomb pattern. Super fine, impeccably pearlized, it creates soft highlights. On cheeks, brows, shoulders–anywhere on the body.

  • Honey Light - A light peachy gold with shimmer
  • Golden Nectar - Muted golden tan with gold shimmer

Naked Honey Salve (LE) $18.50USD/$22.50CDN
Formulated from honey , organic beeswax, sunflower oil and other natural ingredients, this rich honey–scented and flavoured salve instantly moisturizes and helps recondition dry skin. Multi-purpose . Use everywhere.

Naked Honey Hand and Body Cream (LE) -$22.50USD/$27.00CDN
A sensuous cream made from bio-converted honey, shea butter, and vitamins C and E derivatives. Absorbs quickly for skin-softening moisture. Conditions, nourishes, protects. Use on all areas where ultra-moisture is called for.

Naked Honey Body Wash (LE) - $19.50USD/$23.50CDN
Formulated from bio-converted honey, this body wash cleanses the skin while providing the soothing and moisturizing benefits of lavender, narcissus, jasmine flower and blue agave extracts. Provides a sensual, calming, cleansing experience.

Creations Fragrance: Naked Honey (LE) -$22.50USD/$28.5CDN
An aromatic journey that traces honey’s fragrant heart back to summer’s sweetest blooms. Energy starts to buzz, spirits soar, light floral and woodsy notes float toward an electric finale. Sweet and sexy all the way.

Creations Fragrance: Africanimal (LE) - $22.50USD/$28.50CDN
A scent that starts with a honey-ness that’s seductive and given its dash of pepper, not without spice. Add a dark kiss of bergamot and wood, and an aromatic orgy breaks out to create a scent that's all-honey, but far from sweet. 

The highlight powders, as you probably know, have a honeycomb pattern pressed onto them. They are shimmery and actually very beautiful in real life. However, these are...well....I'd call them collector's items. They're hardly practically for everyday use and if one were to choose just ONE highlighting powder from MAC, these Naked Honey powders probably wouldn't make the top three list. 

I actually really like the eyeshadows. I personally like a good neutral eye, but they're very pretty sitting in my palettes. In my opinion, Pollinator and Creme de Miel would make for a very nice tropical eye for summer. 

I don't like the lipglasses. Queen Bee is probably my favorite, but I definitely don't reach for them and will never reach for them. I like really light pink lips or maybe corals and these colors are just not doing anything for me. 

The hand salve is actually really high quality and I got it instead of the hand cream or body scrub. It's pretty smooth and softening and has an okay smell.

I sampled both creations at my local MAC but decided not to buy either since they're so not worth it. The smells are good, but the price of this product is ridiculous. I don't recommend purchasing MAC Creations. Ever. I have the one from Rose Romance and I've used it once.
