MAC Naked Honey Haul, Nee's Luv-Pack & FOTD.

Hello everybody!
TGTF (thank god tomorrow's friday).

I went, after work today, to MAC so I could pick up part of my Nana's birthday present (I already ordered her Cosmedicine goodies- she loves the Megadose serum and eye specialist eye cream).
Nana LOVES MAC orange lipsticks, and their Blushcreme's.
I got her Ravishing Lipstick (cremesheen) & Ladyblush (blushcreme)- they no longer carry her favorite shade: Blossoming :(

Well, I just COULDN'T help myself, because today was MAC's release of Naked Honey!
I wasn't too fond of the "amazing" skin salve- I don't like salves because of the greasy texture- I'd rather stick to body creams.

When I first tried on the Naked Honey Hand and Body Cream- I was slightly turned-off by the scent of honey and honeysuckle (at first it was too sweet). So I passed it up. While driving home in my car, I couldn't stop smelling my hand (where I layered the body cream)- it settled in to a beautiful scent on my skin- now I need to definitely go back and get this.


So, here is what I picked up!



BOTH High-Light Powders
I am bummed about the overspray of shimmer- I wish it would be this shimmery all of the way through- but I think MAC is trying to step away from so much shimmer- and go towards more of a satin/silky finish. That is why I am still impressed with these High-Light Powders- the texture underneath the shimmery overspray is very smooth/satiny/velvety...

(from the MAC website):
Naked Honeycolon High-Light Powder
A High-Light Powder specially created for the Naked Honey collection. Features an embossed honeycomb pattern. Superfine, impeccably pearlized, it creates soft highlights on cheek, brow, shoulders – anywhere on the body. Limited edition.


Honey Light (is the lightest shade): a light peachy gold w/shimmer









Top: powder w/shimmery overspray
Bottom: powder underneath the shimmery overspray


Left: powder w/shimmery overspray
Right: powder underneath the shimmery overspray


Left: powder w/shimmery overspray
Right: powder underneath the shimmery overspray



The other High-Light Powder didn't come with a label on the bottom- did this happen to anyone else?? Weird.

Golden Nectar (the darker of the two): muted golden tan w/gold











Left: powder w/shimmery overspray
Right: powder underneath the shimmery overspray






buh-bye shimmery overspray :(





I couldn't resist not taking all 3 shadows of this collection, as I loved them alllll sooooo much!!!
Creme de Miel: Frosty light yellow gold (veluxe pearl)
Pollinator: Mid-tone warm reddened peach w/pearl (frost)
Buckwheat: Dark copper brown with multi-dimensional pearl (frost)
Creme de Miel, Pollinator, & Buckwheat

I am a HUGE fan of MAC Fragrances!
I've owned them all!
I only bought one (Africanimal) because the other scent (Naked Honey) smelled of FLOWERS and it was wayyyy too sweet.
Africanimal (love this name) is sexy and spicy! I love spicy fragrances.
If you are more of a floral person, who loves honeysuckle, then try Naked Honey fragrance.
Oh, btw, I picked up Fierce & Fabulous Lipglass because I forgot to get it last time, when I got my Style Warriors haul.


MAC Creations Hue: Africanimal
Naked Honeycolon Creations Hue: Africanimal
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. Limited edition.
20 ml / .68 us fl oz



Fierce & Fabulous







I won Mz.Nee's HK giveaway-
remember, where everyone took a picture of their favorite HK item?
I came in second- and I got some great prizes!
Thanks Nee- you are such a sweetie!



My fav, the HK frame!!

So here is my FOTD.
I tried out a sample of Hourglass Foundation in light Beige- it wore pretty well all day! Except it's super expensive! DANG!
I dedicate this FOTD to Mel.
Without her, I would never be able to show you ladies my Majolica Majorca Jeweling Eyes Palette or my Beautymaker Love Pu Pu Cheek!
(I know some of you wanted to see what the blush looks like on the cheeks)

aww i was looking forward to a review and an opinion on the honey salve because i was thinking of getting it. and thats pretty unfortunate about the highlight powders. i'd assume that they were shimmery throughout :(
