Black opal lipsticks are o.k. I tried this because I was being a little cheap. I will not purchase any black opal lip stick again.
Finally, a Clinique Black Honey lookalike (not too subtle, are they) for those that Black Honey didn't show up on (like me)! This is slightly deeper and more pigmented, and possibly a wee bit browner than the original, but the closest lookalike I have ever seen. Maybelline's Sheer Berry and Drippin' Honey were touted as lookalikes but were more pink than the original IMO, while this is much closer. Very nice and glossy, no noticeable scent, really adds some natural oomph to the lips. The slim squarish tube is also similar to Clinique's, but it's under $6 at CVS. A great buy and sure to be a staple for me.
