Re: MAC - Naked Honey Discussion
Ahem, so you all want my review right?
Overall I think this was a very manageable collection (ie not too big). The colors were very earthy, and the skincare products were solid, but not exceptional (save the salve)
Items I purchased (3 total) are bolded
She’s a Star - Light beigey gold. Nothing remarkable
Queen Bee - A little bit pink, a little bit coral. This one is actually very pretty for summer. I imagine it would look really cool with Lollipop Loving
Buzz - Dark Copper brown with flecks of red and orange. The color ends up being almost burnt sienna with sparkles. Very pretty
EyeshadowsCrème de Miel
- A frosty yellow/gold. This reminds me of Femme Fi but with stronger gold tones. The texture is everything we know and love about veluxe pearls.
Pollinator - A peachy coral. This one is very similar to Paradisco, except Pollinator has more coral/orange tones whereas paradisco has strong pink tones.
Buckwheat - A dark brown with subtle gold sparkle. This one reminds me a lot of Nars Galapagos, but with less obvious gold sparkle than Galapagos.High-Light Powder
Honey Light - Described as a light peach, but I got a bit of a light yellowy gold with slight peach tones. I think this will best be suited for medium to darker skintones as a highlighting shade. There is still a slight shimmer under the overspray. Golden Nectar
- A bronzey brown/gold. On my nw15/20 self it made a great bronzer. Not too dark or muddy, with just the right amount of warmth to make it work well. Again, like with the Honey Light there is a slight shimmer in the powder under the overspray. Very soft and pretty.Naked Honey Salve
This is going to be the star of the skincare collection. The scent is very beachy to me. Sweet with a hint of honey, but there is something else in there that just screams coconut, tanning oil, and flowers. An interesting combo that is pretty pleasant. As for the texture, it is a bit hard in the tin, and needs to be warmed with the hands. It is heavy moisture, and I am sure many will flock to it!
Naked Honey Hand and Body Cream - This one was super thick and creamy. I honestly didn't get that strong of a scent from it, just a hint of honey and something slightly floral. I would have picked this up, if I didn't have a million other creams already!
Naked Honey Body Wash- Another variation on the naked honey scent. Just lighter. Nothing spectacular
Creations Fragrance: Naked Honey So I sniffed and sniffed trying to think what this one reminded me of. I had my eureka moment and it hit me, this smells just like Marc Jacobs Daisy, but with a hint of sweetness from the honey. It is actually a very young scent, a bit strong. I like it but have myself covered since I own Daisy.
Creations Fragrance: Africanimal- This one was all spicy musk. Not a scent I am fond of unfortunately
And there you have it, my thoughts on Naked Honey!
