So the Naked Honey Collection came out last week in Thursday, and the whole collection was alright. I only purchased one of the high-light powders. I initially wanted the Honey Light, but then I saw Golden Nectar, and it was gorgeous. You can’t see it in the picture now because I’ve been using it since I got it, haha. But it had a real nice shimmery pearlescent finish.
I actually purchased it because of the honeycomb pattern (yes, I’m a sucker for pretty things). There was a light spray on it, so it looked super shimmery, but after you swatch it, it comes off. When you first apply it the sheen is noticeable and it gets less prominent after a few uses.
I don’t know if you could see the light sheen in my hand. I swatched it over UDPP, but my camera didn’t seem to catch it. I also swatched it on a piece of paper so you could see the color. I actually hoped it was a bit more shimmery (like at the beginning), but this can be used as bronzer too – its a really nice color. I think this color is more suitable for lighter skintones since I’m sure it’ll show up better on their skin. Medium to Dark skintones can probably uses this as a blush. Its an all-over-powder, so you can pretty much use this however you like. I used this on my eyes as well, and it looked great.
US and Canadian beauties, don’t forget about the MAC F&F Sale from tomorrow to Thursday! Happy shopping!
So we all know how innovative MAC is with their collections. From the creative names – to the packaging, MAC always manages to catch ones eyes. Now, MAC introduces their Limited Edition Summer Collection called, “Naked Honey”. This collection will be available June 11, 2009 in North America and July 2009 International.
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.
