Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey


Black Honey is a complete cult classic beauty item. The color, though it looks scary dark, is touted to look good on everyone and layer well to build color. I had high expectations of this due to the fantastic word of mouth.

I’m just going to put it out there- I LOVE this lipstick. It is super moisturizing, doesn’t settle into lip lines, and it’s easy to apply. It doesn’t last a long time, which might be a con to some, but I have no problem with it. It lasts a few hours on me before I need to reapply, if I’m not eating or drinking anything.


The color is easy to build up, ranging from a light flush to a more full-on color. It has a satin/gloss appearance and it is very comfortable to wear. It doesn’t dry out my lips either, which is much appreciated.


Overall, I have no complaints about Black Honey and would repurchase it. I can even see this becoming one of my favorite lipsticks! 🙂

    Love how this looks different on everyone. The warmth of the color comes out on you.

  2. This looks so pretty on you! I think on me I was a bit underwhelmed by it. Not that I didn’t like it, but more that, on me, it was just kind of “meh”.
