I read so much hype on this lipstick that I had to buy it. I don't feel that it's anything special. I wore it twice and it has been sitting in my makeup bag since. It feels dry on my lips and the color is just ok.

I can´t believe I finally decided to buy this! I wanted to see what all the fuzz was about so I surrender to Clinique´s Black Honey lipstick.
It has become a daily staple. Love the sheen and color although it doesn´t last too much.
Maybe I´ll try to find a lip balm similar to this after it runs out.
Update 03/23/08: I still use it everyday and still have 1.5 inches left. Still looking for a similar, long lasting shade.

I've been wanting this for a while and finally bought it. Although it looks very, very dark in the tube, it comes out a very pretty color that slightly darkens my lips, perking them up. I really love the color, but the lipstick itself was sort of dry. And it didn't last very long-gone before lunch. I've read about the comparisons to Dr. Pepper LipSmackers-one of my favorites-and I would tend to agree. I will continue to use this, and I have a feeling it will go quickly since the staying power is so bad, but I will not repurchase. I plan to use this when I am going for a fresh, natural face and my Dr. Pepper chapstick on those no-makeup days.

This lipstick was designed to bring out the natural tones on the wearer's lips. It's the most popular selling Clinique lipstick by far. I much prefer the black honey gloss with the wand because it's shinier, but I love the color!
By the way, the other Almost Lipstick colors HAVE NOT been discontinued. On the contrary, three new colors have come out recently: black plum, black raisin, and black violet. And the almost blush is still being made as well.

This stuff is WONDERFUL! I looked for a product like this for a long time, and when I received it in one of the free gifts that Clinique gave out, I gave that one to my sister and bought myself a full-sized one. I love how natural it looks on my lips. They brighten them and make them more pink without looking like full-on lipstick or lipgloss. <3

I agree with the reviewer below who compared the product color to lipsmackers-Dr. Pepper chapstick. Both products are similar in color and do not build color. The advantages of this product is that it has a more sophisticated silver tube packaging and is not as greasy or as shiny as dr. pepper. Additionally, I have always found that prolonged used of the Dr.Pepper product dries out my lips(its supposed to be moisturizing). If you are considering buying this product my advice to you would be to spend the two bucks on the Dr. pepper first and then move onto this product.

I don't wear lipstick - - but I do wear this! I bought it on a whim to complete a "buy $XX, get free gift!" purchase, and I don't regret it at all.
The color isn't in your face, and since I don't wear lipstick often, that's definitely what I needed! I wear it going out, and it's an amazing color whether I'm pale or tan.
Definitely would buy this again!

This is absolutely my HG lipstick, completely my lips but better. I wear it almost every day and it's the only lipstick in my purse. So pretty, sheer but just enough color to make me look perky. I've gotten compliments on the lipstick when I was wearing no other makeup, too.
It looks like the other Almost Lipstick colors were discontinued, a shame as it's the perfect consistency for me. Like others said, it requires no mirror, isn't sticky, but gives a glossy shine. Beautiful.

I was underwhelmed by this but I do enjoy it! It basically does about the same thing as a dr.pepper lip balm would do, adds slightly more color to the lip. I already have pigmented lips and I didn't think it did much for me. The texture is really nice, its like a gel lip balm stick, and gives a nice sheen. I don't think I would re buy this color, will try other ones, since it does give the look that I'm fond of. This would look really nice on paler ladies, I'm around nw35-40.

I have tried Black Honey before, a few years ago, before losing it in a move. However, I bought it again and I'm a little bit disappointed. The product in the tube was really hard (maybe warming it up might help?) and was hard to spread, and then I had chunks break off! :-( The color payoff is pretty slim too, my lips have a lot of pigment so this may be why I have to apply it for about five minutes to get any color payoff at all! I like the slim silver tube packaging, and the price is just right ($13ish) so I will finish the tube, but I probably won't purchase another Almost Lipstick because the color payoff is not great. Would definitely recommend this to ladies who have pale lips!
