MAC - Naked Honey

Bees do it, now MAC does it! Honey that is! As ancient and exotic as Kohl, great beauties have long revered the natural restorative powers of the Golden Elixir.
Following the example of their fabled Queen, Cleopatra, Egyptians, bathed in honey and milk. Queen Anne of England used it to silken her hair; from the Ancient Greeks to the Roman Empire, honey has never lost its regal, ever-amber lustre. We love the luxury of its sensual essence... but we also know that it's a highly efficient and wholesome humectant and healer. Introducing our limited edition Naked Honey collection- three aspects of golden warmth and sun-made sweetness for the body, layered with two decidedly different honeycomb-derived fragrances- celebrating the secret lives of Queen Bees. Complementary shades of High-Light Powder, Eyes Shadow and Lipglass ARE ALL THE BUZZ FOR SUMMER.

Lipglass ($14.00 USD/$16.50 CDN)
-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 ($14.50 USD/$17.00 CDN)
-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 ($24.50 USD/$29.50 CDN)
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

I tried Golden Nectar and it's quite the multi-use product. If you use your finger or a eye shadow brush, it's pure gold. Use a fan brush or a fluffy face brush, and it's a golden highlighter for your face or body. The texture is super fine and the honeycomb embossing is so cute.

Face Candy Grade: A

Naked Honey Salve ($18.50 USD/$22.50 CDN)
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.

This little pot has a medium-thick honey like salve. It kind of reminds me of rosebud salve but a little thicker and honey based. I like it for my lips, cuticles and feet the best.

Face Candy Grade: B

Naked Honey Hand and Body Cream
($22.50 USD/$27.00 CDN)
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 ($19.50 USD/$23.50 CDN)
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 ($22.50 USD/$28.50 CDN)
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 ($22.50 USD/$28.50 CDN)
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.

I love mac make up, it stays in place and is natural. I am actually pretty excited about this line because it is showing that mac is becoming more aware of natural beauty and is promoting it to its customers. Women need to know they can highlight their best features without using tons and tons of make up and mac is doing a good job with this bare honey line. I actually just watched a video the other day on staying young and preventing wrinkles, I think all women should know that to be beautiful they need to take care of themselves.
