MAC Naked Honey Exclusive Sneak Peek!

Honey Light High-Light Powder

Temptalia has an EXCLUSIVE sneak peek at MAC’s Naked Honey collection! 🙂

I hope you enjoy it! You can read collection information to catch up, in case you missed it!

To clarify: the high-light powder has an overspray of shimmer, but once removed, the product still has a little shimmer/sheen. It is not chalky like the high-light powders from Dame Edna at all. It’s smooth, pigmented, and subtly shimmery.

See the goods!

Shimmer layer removed…

The shimmer is nicer – I find MSFs do tend to accentuate pores, but I didn’t think this one did it quite so much.

For decorative purposes, some pressed powder products have an ‘overspray’ (top layer of shimmer or another colour) – the actual product is underneath the overspray layer.

some beauty powders and things have an initial layer of shimmer/gitter on top of the actual powder…christine showed you pictures/swatches of the BP before and after she wiped that layer off.

Yes, you’re right, thank you! I keep getting the mixed up, because I think Pollinator should be yellow, LOL!


Dear Christine! May I post these pictures in a russian MAC-loving-freaks-community? The pictures are amazing and i surely tell them, where i got the pictures from!


It’s similar. It reminds me of Dear Cupcake, too. It might be a little less pink (and therefore even more similar to Paradisco than Dear Cupcake).

Pollinator reminds me of Dear Cupcake. How do they compare with each other in person? Creme de Miel looks wonderful… so does the high-light powder 🙂

Awwww that stinks that it’s only an overlay of shimmer 🙁 I wanted the whole compact to look like that….ah well. What do you think Christine? Do you like it without the shimmer overlay?

It’s still very pretty underneath, though. It is NOTHING, I repeat, NOTHING!!!, like Dame Edna powders.

I like it better without the shimmer overlay, because it was just KAPOW! too much shimmer for me.

ohh man this is pretty! I love pollinator!!1 What a pretty color! I was wondering how do you always get the new stuff before they come out?!?! I MUST KNOW! lol what does overspray mean? o_O

I wish MAC would stop it with the overspray’s such a let’s almost like they are trying to fool us..however i am glad that it still has shimmer throughout the powder after the overspray is gone unlike the hullaballoo powder

Drool. I want a highlight powder, its like a light bronze for the summer, I’m getting way too excited for this collection to come out!

Thanks for the sneak peak, Christine! What are the finish on these eyeshadows? And how is the texture? I’m going to be so sad if Creme de Miel is a lustre with glitter fallout!

OOH! those look awesome, thanks for posting this!!!!

Creme de Miel looks like a nice replacement for my beloved Rose Blanc that I just hit pan on.

The highlight powder is pretty!

is Creme de Miel a dupe of rose blanc? will this highlighter look okay for an nc35 (I’m always unsure about highlighters and bronzers for my skintone)? I can’t wait for your summer looks once naked honey and style warrior is out!

Hi christine
I love your site the sneakpreaiews but the best are the reviews…you really help me making my decision what to buy….I think mac wouldn

How does Pollinator compare to Paradisco and Expensive Pink? On my computer screen they seem to be quite similar.

I so cannot wait for this collection. Everything looks YUMMEH.

I don’t think I own Dazzlelight, actually! It’s not like it, though, just because it has a lot more yellow/gold in it. I’d say it’s very much like Rose Blanc. Kind of like Nylon + Goldmine.

I’m starting to save now for this!! Has my interest much more than the last 2 collections (rose romance or style warrior).
