Sneak Peek: MAC Naked Honey Collection Review, Swatches, and First Impressions

As June quickly approaches so does the release of MAC Naked Honey, an exciting new, buzz worthy (get it? buzz! I’m such a damn comedian aren’t I?) collection. I’m always quite the little fan girl for MAC Summer Collections and so far I am loving
all I have seen from both MAC Naked Honey and MAC Style Warriors.


I’ll be giving you a very brief sneaky peek from MAC Naked Honey after the jump!

With plenty of golds and bronze on the menu MAC Naked Honey is most definitely Summer-worthy cosmetic goodness. It is a small amount of color in this collection thought and most of the release concentrating on plenty of interesting body care items such as shower gels, lotions, potions, etc….

I did a quickie look yesterday using three items from the MAC Naked Honey launch that I got to test out. So far I like what I see. I tried out MAC High-light Powder in Golden Nectar, MAC Lipglass in Buzz, and MAC Eye Shadow in Creme de Miel.

Two MAC High-Light Powders are being released, Golden Nectar being the darker shade of the two. Regardless if it’s dark or not it was flattering on me. You can easily double this up as a contouring tool if you desire and even a bronzer if you want. It’s a deep, bronze shade with a hint of golden shimmer. Sadly thought the golden shimmer is only an over spray and for the most part the powder did apply matte to my cheeks. This wasn’t necessarily a bad thing as I did like the way it looked on. I used it as a blush/bronzer combo on my cheeks in the below picture.


Three MAC Lipglasses shades will release with MAC Naked Honey one of which I tried was Buzz. Another fine Summer shade as it’s a dark copper that hints at being almost brown, very nice when paired up with Golden Nectar.


And finally I tried out MAC Eyeshadow in Creme De Miel which is a velvety gold shade. This applies a tad chalky but for the most part it blends out nicely and can be paired with fabulous coppery, bronze looks. Below I used it on it’s own on my lids.


Overall, I like what I’ve seen so far from MAC Naked Honey and I look forward to testing out the rest to see what I’ll haul from this collection.


What do you think so far of MAC Naked Honey?

Beauty News: Soap and Glory Skincare Now At Target


I blogged about Soap & Glory Skincare in January being widely available in Boots, across the pond, in the far UK. I recall ranting a tad bit about how it would take two years and a mule to get it over to our side of the pond. I’m happy to report that it’s now available at Target. I was at Target last Sunday and happened across it. Joy! I picked up a few bits to review for you but if you can’t wait you can snag it for yourself at your local Target as it’s widely available as of now in the US, bless be to the Soap & Glory gods!

Anyone see it at their Target yet?

Beauty News From Abroad: Stila Go Buh-Bye


One of my favorite bloggers, BritishBeautyBlogger, has reported that Stila is officially pulling out of the UK. Seems Stila has been pulling the plug on most of the European markets and Asian ones for now. I imagine as they rebuild you may see them pop up again on your shores but for now it seems it’s become more and more exclusive to US shores.

How do you feel about Stila possibly not being available in your country?

Will you miss it?
