MAC Cosmetics Naked Honey Collection

Bees do it… now MAC does it! Honey that is! As ancient and exotic as Kohl, great beauties have long revered the natural restorative powers of the Golden Elixir.

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. Introducing our limited edition Naked Honey collection – three aspects of golden warmth and sun-made sweetness for the body, layered with two decidedly different honeycomb-derived fragrances – celebrating the secret lives of Queen Bees. Complementary shades of High-Light Powder, Eye Shadow and Lipglass are all the buzz for summer.

Lipglass ($14.00 U.S. / $16.50 CDN)

  • She’s a Star Light neutral gold
  • Queen Bee Mid-tone apricot with multi-dimensional pearl
  • Buzz Dark copper brown with multi-dimensional pearl

Eyeshadow ($14.50 U.S. / $17.00 CDN)

  • Crème de Miel Frosty light yellow gold
  • Pollinator Mid-tone warm reddened peach with pearl
  • Buckwheat Dark copper brown with multi-dimensional pearl

High-Light Powder ($24.50 U.S. / $29.50 CDN)

A high-light powder specially created for the Naked Honey collection. It features an embossed honeycomb pattern — super-fine, impeccably pearlized. It creates soft high lights on cheek, brow, shoulders — anywhere on the body.

  • Honey Light A light peachy gold with shimmer
  • Golden Nectar Muted golden tan with gold shimmer

Naked Honey Skin Salve ($18.50 U.S. / $22.50 CDN)

Formulated from honey, organic beeswax, sunflower oil, and other natural ingredients, this rich honey-scented and flavoured salve instantly moisturizers and helps recondition dry skin. Multi-purpose. Use everywhere.

Naked Honey Hand and Body Cream ($22.50 U.S. / $27.00 CDN)

A sensuous cream made form bio-converted honey, shea butter, and vitamins C and E derivatives. Absorbs quickly for skin-softening moisture. Conditions, nourishes, protects. Use on all areas where ultra-moisture is called for.

Naked Honey Body Wash ($19.50 U.S. / $23.50 CDN)

Formulated from bio-converted honey, this body wash cleanses the skin while providing the soothing and moisturizing benefits of lavender, narcissus, jasmine flower, and blue agave extracts. Provides a sensual, calming, cleansing experience.

Creations: Naked Honey ($22.50 U.S. / $28.50 CDN)

An aromatic journey that traces honey’s fragrant heart back to summer’s sweetest blooms. Energy starts to buzz, spirits soar, light floral and woodsy notes float toward an electric finale. Sweet and sexy all the way.

Creations: Africanimal ($22.50 U.S. / $28.50 CDN)

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, an aromatic orgy breaks out to create a scent that’s all honey but far from sweet.

Available: June 11th, 2009 in North America. July 2009 international.
