MAC Cosmetics Naked Honey Collection

Launch Date: June 11, 2009 (North America), July 2009 (International)

Bees do it… now M•A•C 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 shade of High-Light Powder, Eye Shadow and Lipglass are all the buzz for summer.

MAC is like, not fair with coming out with amazing collections one after one. I had like a huge interest in Hello Kitty but now everything else that’s following is going to earn my money.

Aubree Avatar

Girl! I feel the same way. O_O

I’m going to get my sugarsweet stuff on monday. And I’m already eyeing the Style Warrior collection and the Colour Ready collection and now this one. I might be skipping Rose Romance though. Not entirely sure.

I’m going to be so poor! ;__; lol.

Sara Avatar

this is a reason i HATE not living within 75 miles of a mac…that honey perfume sounds good but i have no way to smell it before i just buy it. dammmnnn

Tanya Avatar

None of the actual make-up colors sound like something I would really be into wearing BUT….OMG the perfumes both sound really really interesting!! The second one sounds AMAZING! I would also like to try the highlight powder…I tend to like fair skin but once in a while for a party its fun to have a bit of that sun kissed look. I also really like the packaging.

Sash Avatar

This is like the first collection that I’ve been excited for in a very LONG time.
Maybe it’s because the promo image is so captivating!

Shefali Avatar

MAC does it again with their summer collection!!! Neo Sci-Fi was amazing and now this!! I’m so excited I can’t contain myself. If everything is of quality I might buy it all. I’m such a body product junkie and this all sounds amazing. And with my skintone, I’m sure all the makeup will look good. Damn it…I’m more excited about this than Hello Kitty.

Brianne Avatar

I must be one of the few that are not tempted in the slightest by this one! I prefer to get my bath and body products elsewhere (never felt that was MAC’s strong suit anyways) and the colors are SO not for me and my Irish heritage lol. The only thing that vaguely tempts me is the second perfume! Woot for another collection that will ultimately save me money lol!

Jennifer Avatar

Oooh this is gorgeous! I have found my next collection to save for! I loved BBR, but I haven’t really been feeling anything else… until now. I’m definitely going to get all the lipglasses and all the shadows, and probably the lighter shade of highlighter, if I like how it swatches. Thank goodness it’s a relatively small launch!

Very excited about the “honey” concept: it brings to mind fuzzy feelings in association with soothing, wholesome, nourishing, golden, warm, vibrant!!…
I like the fact that Mac has included body beauty products to a collection; it’s VERY rare that it happens. I’m all over this collection (and still excited about HK by the way). I think each and every collection has merits in its own way. And I ALWAYS rave about the MAC promo posters/pics!

sara Avatar

Aside from the fragrances, nothing else really entices me. I have way too many gold and brown shadows and highlight powders just don’t cut it (Dame Edna… anyone?) I don’t know, maybe in person the collection might appeal a little bit more but as of now I’m passing on this.

Sandy Avatar

OMG thanks for the early info Christine! I think I like this better than New Sci Fi. I love everything that smells like honey. Def very very intrigued by all of this

MissTiss Avatar

What in the world is bio-converted honey. It sounds genetically engineered (LOL), not sure I like the sound of that. Need more info.

Otherwise, I want just a handful of things, but I think this collection is adorable. The perfumes sound interesting, can’t wait to smell them.

Vee Avatar

I want the second perfume…. and I’d love to try out the High-Light Powder and the salve. I love the idea of this collection – to me, this is what MAC is about. Trying new things.

megan Avatar

I really excited about this collection. It started with the name ‘Naked Honey’ come on that just sound interesting and im glad that the promo pics didnt disappoint.hopefully the swatches won’t either but i’ll have to wait a while for that

Helena Avatar

I hate this…it sounds interesting (I love honey and have a yellowish skin tone), but I also have a phobia of honeycomb patterns. They FREAK me OUT. If these products come out in non-terror-inducing packaging, let me know. xD

Gaby Avatar

OMG… are you sireous well your safe with the lipglass and shadows if you get the powder just have to wip off da top! good luck with that maybe nows the time to get over that fear!:o 🙂

hi Avatar

I think I would seriously LOVE buckwheat eyeshadow, and one of the powderwith the last shimmer. The more silky and matte a powder is, the more natural it looks – have you ever seen anyone with natural-looking sparkly skin?

Jessica Avatar

good thing i have a mac store near me (:
i can’t wait for this one. i want a hilight powder-hopefully its not too shimmery, maybe a lipglass and the naked honey perfume sounds good.

cmferrets Avatar

mmmmm all new stuff, i wonder what the perfume creation is going to smell like? and if the packaging is going to be diff, like in black and yellow .

Sasha Avatar

Thank God this isn’t coming out until June! I’m going to be spending a ton on Grand Duos, Sugarsweet, and Rose Romance. I hate being bombarded with pretty collections!

Kirstin Avatar

Looks interesting. I’m looking forward to trying the highlight powders & I’m already lusting for Queen Bee lipglass – hopefully swatches won’t disappoint!

steph Avatar

oh you have no idea how much i want everything in this collection! i am really, really lemming the honeycomb face and body powder. Perfect for summer can we say!!!

Tracey Avatar

I’m feeling the glosses and eyeshadows but most of all I’m interested in the Naked Honey Skin Salve and the other body products. This will be a great collection I think.

Honey Avatar

Im not loving this collection, but i like it and i can wait, im not being to jumpy about it, i love the hand and salve products, two highlighters, and the lightest of the lipglass, pretty sweet!

Shawn Campbell Avatar


I love this stuff and can’t find it anywhere. I know it has been discontiued, but does anyone have it?????
