I think the idea of calling this an Almost Lipstick is so cute. It really is a sheer lip color and it has a glossy finish.
Black Honey is supposedly Clinique’s bestselling shade. They came up with this shade in 1971 and it’s said that today, someone in the United States buys a Black Honey lipstick every three minutes. That’s a cult classic if I’ve ever heard of one.
Black Honey is a really pretty deepened raisin shade that would look good on any skin tone.
Personally, I don’t think I’m a fan of this. I still want to give it more chances before condemning it. I think it’s just kind of patchy in the way that color is distributed. I’m also not a big fan of the shade even though I really wanted to. I just feel like on me it looks like I have chapped lips or I’ve been outside in the cold for too long. But it’s all about personal preference. I love actual lipstick with loads of pigment. Some like a more natural coverage. If you’re the latter, this is totally perfect for you.
They only have one other shade if you aren’t into Black Honey. It’s called Pink Honey and looks really pretty. You can get this at your local Sephora for $17. Let me know if you’ve used the cult-classic shade Black Honey in any kind of product!
