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.

Surprisingly long-lasting for an "almost lipstick". Wearable, pretty, berry color. It's always in my handbag.

I'm surprised anyone could find fault with this product. I wish they made all their lip products like this. It's a VERY good general moisturizer, for when my lips need 'topping up'. If i'm consistent with it, then it's excellent. If i've slacked on moisturizing all day, then i've already lost the battle, but that's true for me with ANY lip moisture product out there. But the mere fact that this can keep me going if i reapply once it's been eaten/drunk off, then that says a lot. It's not gonna stay on through EVERYTHING, but it is gonna give you good moisture and conditioning with appropriate reapplication. And the thing that takes it over the top for me is the sheer yet buildable colour it imparts. So when i've applied a little makeup, and want to maintain the look throughout the day (without any fuss), i reach for this beauty. And it make me look as though i'm 'pulled together'. I like it very much, and will definitely repurchase.

One lippie off because it only comes in one colour, AND i'd love it if it were a tad more slick at times.

I liked the color it was a very natural color on my lips..nothing like what it looks like in the tube. However, I won't buy this again...the consistency of the product was not even as good as a basic chapstick in my opinion. It wore off so fast I barely had time to put the cap back on before I needed more! ( ok that is an exaggeration, but not by much!) I also didn't like that for coverage I had to use 2-3 coats which left me with a splotchy looking result. I keep my lips well moisturized and exfoliated so this was surprising to me. I liked the color so well I even tried in in their gloss version and that was another bad experience so I just gave up. My 9 year old daughter reaped the benefits and I often see her with a mouth smeared in black honey.

Clinique's Almost Lipstick in Black Honey is definitely an HG for me; I've used it for over 10 years. It is super-sheer and natural looking and it moisturizes lips without feeling heavy or sticky. Black Honey is a universal shade that would work on most skin tones. In the tube it looks really deep and a bit scary. However, when you glide it on your lips you see a gorgeous brown shade with a hint of red -- a true shade of plum. I highly recommend this product!

Gorgeous! Nice burst of color, makes your lips look naturally bitten. I can't imagine this looking bad on anybody!

Perfect everyday color that doesn't look like you're wearing lipstick. Just gives a hint of color. I'm not sure if it would show up as well on someone with darker skin or more pigmented lips. My skin is pale. This has been a mainstay for me for years.

A beautiful "bitten-lips" red, but the formula is very drying. If I don't put lip balm on top, it sucks the moisture out of my lips. It could be that my tube is ages old, but I do like the buildability.

Very sheer on my lips, which have a fair amount of pigment on their own. Some shine, not overly glossy. Punches up my own natural color just enough so that my lips don't shriek "LIPSTICK!"; they just look rosy and healthy. Subtly brightens my face (fair skin with pink tones, gray-blue eyes, blond hair). A little drying; I would probably wear this more in the summer when hydration isn't as much of an issue.

Overall, a great daily lipstick, very natural.
