Spotlight On: MAC Naked Lunch

nakedlFinish: Frost / Minimal pink with shimmer

Known Dupes: All That Glitters, UD Sin

Naked Lunch is a light pinky-peach-tan shade that applies very well to the lid and, in my opinion, looks best when used on the lid with a darker color in the crease. You can also use it on top of a darker shade to blend out the crease. This shade reminds me a lot of Jest, both in application and appearance on the lid. While Jest is just a tad lighter, Naked Lunch has a truly muted more tan tone to it. Although it’s one shade I do like, it hasn’t turned out to be one I necessarily love (I like Jest a LOT more).

Look #1

MAC eyeshadows used:

  • Naked Lunch (on lid, below crease)
  • Mystery (outer corner of eye)
  • Saddle (crease)
  • Blanc Type (blend)

  1. Love these looks – all work appropiate, and I now have most of these colours! ( I had a MAC birthday and did most of my shopping from the bestsellers list.) You inspired me to purchase my first set of falsies yesterday. Thanks!

  2. #4 and 5 are combinations I already wear so it’s a bit gratifying/reassuring to see them here. Naked Lunch is one of my all time faves and (not surprisingly), I prefer it to Jest (but your colouring and mine are SO different, which probably explains it).

    1. I could definitely see that, Mariella. Jest is more appropriate for warm skin tones, whereas Naked Lunch would be more flattering on cooler skin tones. Jest just warms my eye up a little better 🙂

    1. Hi Donna!
      Ah! That look is part of my Birthday Blog Contest Giveaway that closed October 25, 2011. As part of celebrating my anniversary, that look is being revealed on November 7 when the final winners of the contest are announced.
      However! I don’t mind helping a gal out – I’ll email you the info shortly so you can wear it for Halloween. 😉

  3. yeah, with silver ring, i dont know much to do what?! It does not blend ver good and not a very pigmented colour, but the last photo with Nacked and print its wearable.

  4. I just got naked lunch (had it years ago and used it up and never replaced it) I always loved it. I used to use it as a highlight tho. Nice to see it used as a lid color-love look 7 and I have all the colors again YAY!!

  5. Love the new combo. Especially since I’m expecting Carbonized any day now. 😉

    I don’t have Sable, do you think I can sub in Swiss Chocolate for a similar enough look?

  6. I know the comments are a little old here, but just as an FYI, if the question comes up again, layering Naked Lunch over NYX jumbo eye pencil in Yogurt gives it a little oomph and staying power.
