Nectar of the Gods: Naked Honey from MAC
I am late to the Naked Honey party. This was a collection that was not speaking to me on paper. It was too warm and there are more than enough bronzers in my drawer. The surprises were the skin care and a little shadow called Buckwheat.
The skin care is formulated by both organic beeswax and bio-converted honey. The scent is "spot on" clover honey. The salve is quite superior to many products on the market. It is soft and workable. It actually penetrates the skin instead of just coating it in goo.
Ingredients are organic beeswax, sunflower oil and petrolatum. It retails for $18.50($22.50 CDN). Many bloggers are raving over the Naked Honey Body wash. If you can locate it, the retail price is $19.50. It contains honey,lavender, narcissus, jasmine and blue agave. It sounds very Jo Malone-ish. There is also a hand & body cream along with two scents.
Do not fear the shimmery looking high-light powders. It is an overlay. The shimmer powder is fairly weak but the colors are quite fetching. I used a skunk due to the pigment power. My bronzer brush deposited too much product and color. Use a light hand.
This comes in two shades. Honey Light is a peachy gold while Golden Nectar(pictured above) is a golden bisque.
They retail for $24.50 each.
