How have I never reviewed this? This was my very first grown-up lipstick, which I got when I was 14, and I have repurchased it several times in the last 13 years. The coloer is a perfect berry stain - not too bright, not too dark. It just gives my face a nice pick-up. I did take off one lippie for the lasting power - it has the lasting power of a gloss. But, the price is good, and the packaging is sleek and nice. I will definitely be purchasing this again and again.

The berry-stain color darkens a few minutes after I apply it, and can be layered for a more dramatic effect. I usually blot it a few times after application so it isn't as dark. I wear it like any other lip gloss, over a thin layer of vaseline. It's moisturizing, like a lip gloss, but is packaged like a chic lipstick. I usually reapply every 4 hours or so if I wear this throughout the day, and have to keep the skin around my mouth moisturized. The mirror-like silver packaging attracts a lot of fingerprints, and it's a bit pricey. Happily, this is one of two lip products I can use without having an allergic reaction.

I have been using Black Honey for many years now and I still love it. It truly is a colour that looks good on almost anyone's skintone.

It gives my lips a boost of colour without being too dark or heavy in texture.

A favourite in my make up bag!

One of my favourite lip colours - I will always have a tube of this in my make-up bag. Gives my lips a lovely red berry colour, is glossy and the taste/smell is very subtle. Doesn't have much staying power, but I don't mind reapplying.

I was originally disappointed with this after reading the very positive MUA reviews - but I'm not sure what I was expecting. Returned to it recently when I needed a subtle lip colour and was pleasantly surprised with how much I like it now. It's more of a stain than a lipstick. It's like normal lips, but better. Like others have said, it does deliver more pigment to dry lip areas but it is moisturising, very pretty, and it actually lasts a lot longer than I'd expect it to. Also, I love the packaging - very sleek.

I got it after reading the reviews on makupalley. Very disapointed - don't like it at all, not as a lip gloss, or lipstick or anything really!

actully, I love it and use it regulary, but will help with bit of benetint underneed... I still won't buy it again but will enjoy while it lasts!

I love this color. I don't wear any other makeup, but I commonly put this on. I guess some of the negative things said about this product are true (dry parts get more color, not long lasting...), but I'm not bothered by it too much. I have a hard time finding colors that I like, so I guess the color and comfort outweigh the negatives.

I was very disappointed in this product, it is very waxy and no gloss like I thought it would do. I love the butter shine lipsticks so much better!

It is halfway between chapstick and lipstick but I don't care. The color suits me fine for work where they frown on heavy makeup and the slim profile of the product means I can be half asleep, put it on and not go outside the lines :). It's sheer so I can't overdo the application. It is just such an easy, everyday kind of product. I'm not a clinique fan in general, but I love black honey.

This product is between a chapstick and a lipstick. It's a very pretty color with the right amount of shine. It's nice when you want a little color on your lips without looking all made up.
