I finally jumped on the Black Honey bandwagon, and am so glad that I did. The color is gorgeous and super flattering. I'm not a lipstick girl, so this natural color is perfect for me. It's also very moisturizing. Love it!
Sheer silky texture and a natural finish. The Clinique girl informed me that this lipstick has been discontinued in every colour except black honey, a testament to the enduring power of this time-honoured shade. It is very wearable. Don't be put off by the deep hue in the tube. It would add that it is surprisingly pink on the lip. I expected something a little more brown.
Clinique almost lipstick (black honey) is a good choice for those who are looking for a moderate and elegant look. It has a very adoptable color for everyone, but I would recommend it for women with dark hair and darker skin tone. I have dark brown hair, medium skin and geen eyes, and it fits perfectly. I would not call it lipstick but rather colored LIPBALM, because of its texture: it does not last long at all but has a beautiful tone, which emhasises your natural lip color. I would definetly buy it again, but also would very much like to have a long-lasting lipstick with the same mechanism (became darker and darker as you use more and more layers, BUT still gives a natural look), and the same color.
Gorgeous shade (black honey) - not as dark as it looks in the tube; enhances the colour of your lips, so you can create a natural looking tone, or keep applying for a rich look. There's definitely no need to buy a lipstick with more pigment when you can control the amount of coverage you want with this lipstick. I am a lipstick junkie and, as an expert at lipstick shades and brands at this stage, I can absolutely say that this brand and shade is one of the best I have come across. It looks great for work with not much other make-up on and makes you look groomed within 2 minutes of application! Very moisturising also, I don't need a lip balm underneath. It also gives a gorgeous sheen without the stickiness of a gloss. Buy it!!
Do not be scared by the dark, dark color of the Black Honey. Like the name says, it's almost lipstick. It is very sheer. The color is very pretty - red but very natural looking. It's a great everyday lipstick. The thin tube is easy to apply, almost like a gloss. You don't need to look in the mirror to apply this! My only complaint is that it seems to be a little drying. But I love it!
I have always had serious trouble finding a lipstick to match my skin tone and look natural, as I am quite baby faced, and most lipsticks make me look far too over done. In general, I favour a natural, polished look. This lipstick is a staple of mine now, having just purchased it a few weeks ago in Black Honey. I used to apply light foundation, and thinly line the top and bottom lashes, and then add some lip gloss. This look worked fine for the weekend, but when I started working, I needed a stronger lip colour to make me look more groomed. After a tireless search, I read about this lipstick in a magazine and decided to give it a go. I'm so glad I did. The colour is not too strong, more like an enhancement of my natural lip colour. It isn't overly pigmented, but can be applied numerous times in order to achieve a darker colour. The texture is moisturising and soft, without being too heavy or sticky. Although it is not a long lasting lipstick because of its sheer nature, the fact that it can be reapplied without a mirror, because of the subtleness of the colour, is perfect for being on the run. Not only do I use it for work, I find myself applying it on the weekends too, because it is so versatile, it can compliment the most casual outfits and make up to the most formal. It is honestly the most perfect lipstick I could hope for. Am extremely impressed and am convinced I will be buying this for the rest of my life.
I have this in Almost blush and its good/ok. looks like my lips but is a bit browner. looks better on my bestfriend who has pretty pale olive skin. I like this in the winter when I don't have color, but for spring/summer I really like bamboo pink.
I, too, wore this in college -- Bronze Lilac was my shade of choice. I remember liking the color & look quite a bit but, alas, having to reapply constantly. I also (like every other woman on earth) had a tube of Black Honey that I ended up giving away because it turned my lips a really unattractive rust color. It just did nothing for me.

This in Black Honey is my HG lip product. I love everything about it. The colour is perfect, the texture is balmy yet still has a nice sheen, and the tube is so pretty. This is the item i will buy and buy again and again.
