I wouldnt call this almost lipstick, its dark enough to look like lipstick but its not dark in a bad way. I like red lipsticks but always have problems wearing it because its too bold. This product is dark enough to look like you have some serious color on your lips but not so dark you need precise application or else your lips look deformed. It has a nice smooth texture which makes it different from regular lipstick. It is not heavy or goopy, just a nice moist coverage with excellent color. Would def buy this again but wouldnt go so far to call this a must have product. If you are like me and reluctant to wear reds out of fear of looking like a clown, try this and I think you will be happy.

I really like this lipstick because of the packaging and the fact that it's not a thick lipstick, but a very light feeling one.....however I hate the color. It looks really bad on me. Maybe my lips are a little too naturally pigmented, I don't know. When I put this on, it makes my lips look much smaller, no matter how I apply it. It also seems to wear off really fast. I've even tried layering this a few times to see if I could build on the color. It didn't make it look any better. I was looking for an alternative to wearing chapstick all the time when I'm not wearing lipstick. I'm definitely not a lipgloss person, so this would have been an excellent product for me if the color match had been good.
My lips are always dry. I did notice that this lipstick helps a great deal with the dryness. But at $15, I think I can find something else that does the job for less but yet is more high-end than chapstick. This product does feel great on my lips.....it feels way better than any chapstick yet it feels lighter than lipstick. I am so bummed.....I was hoping this would be my HG "other lipstick", but I'll keep searching. Perhaps I can find another color in this same line that will work for me.

I always end up hating the things I really, really want to love. This is such a cult favourite! I wanted it to be MY favourite, too! Let's start with the good: Love the slim packaging (pocket friendly, easy to apply), love that it's sheer but buildable, love the subtle sheen. Now, the drawbacks: Hate that it wears off quickly, hate that it dries out my lips to the point that you can actually see them shrivelling for want of hydration, and most of all... hate that it makes me look like a prostitute. There. I said it. This shade is not so universally flattering after all. Perhaps I am the exception that proves the rule, but sheer or not, it cannot be denied that this is, at it's heart, red lipstick. If you love and feel comfortable in red lipstick then maybe you'll be down for that but yeah... don't assume it will work for you just because people claim it works on everybody! Nothing works on everybody. That's the moral of the story here, I guess.

NW25, Lt. Brown, Blue/Hazel, Combo, No Breakouts. This is my all time HG lipstick! The perfect color for all skintones. Not too heavy or to sheer, just right! Love it, and have repurchased several.

I've bought this lipstick so many times that I've honestly lost count!! It's one of my standard, go to any time, go with anything trusted products. It's sheer (hence the almost bit of the name), nothing like it looks in the stick and fabulous!
I hate to admit that I've usually got at least two of these in use at any time (work bag, home, handbag etc etc) and recently had to toss one that had somehow gone bad! VERY unusual for me!!!

Wow this is a gorgeous color. I recently saw in the pictures section someone that was as pale as me (lighter than an NW10) and was wearing Black Honey and I thought the color of her lips looked gorgeous with her coloring, so I knew that I had to check out this shade (OMG where have I been as this shade has been out like forever and I never had the desire to look at it, but I finally did and so glad.) This is so beautiful and makes my lips look full and pouty and I lightly pat on the color which gives me enough color and it looks perfect. I am so glad that I purchased this today - the quality is excellent, the color is gorgeous and Clinique's pricing is very reasonable. Highly recommend this shade for PPP's.

I got this in a Clinique Gift with Purchase in the fall and I love it! It looks scary and dark in the tube but looks gorgeous on my pigmented lips and it complements my tan-coloured skin very well. It is an excellent Fall and Winter shade but might look too harsh in the summer sun. The only thing I don't like is the packaging, as the tube is not staying on very well anymore :(

Well, I have to say, this totally lives up to the hype. It goes on smooth and light, and feels fantastic on my lips. The color looks great- it comes out a light, sheer red/purple on my lips. Looks great, feels great- this is a great daytime lipstick. For nighttime I'd want something a bit darker and more dramatic (this really is sheer). Gotta say, this has now become an essential for me.

This is one of my favorites. Perfect for when you want to look done, but not DONE.

Ok, I've been wearing MAC lipstick, so that definitely biases my opinion. However, I don't find this Black Honey to be drying like some posters stated. In fact, I think it feels rather moisturizing (like I said, though, MAC by comparison is a desert). It gives a nice look without looking made up, but it does not last particularly long. In fact, I rather agree with the poster who said it put her in mind of the lip smackers from the drugstore. The color is nice and sheer but it doesn't apply evenly. I find myself with spots that are uneven in pigmentation. That is just weird. I only wear it on grocery shopping./blue jeans occasions for that reason. Also, I do NOT like the tube or the shape of the lip product that comes out. It is just awkward to apply in my opinion.
