I've been wearing this product since the summer of 1992. Back in those days, I was a Bronze Lilac girl. Now I am a Spicy Honey lover. (The only thing that I can say that is negative about this product is that I wish that Clinique would bring Bronze Lilac back!)

Every single person I know basically has bought this by now. It is such a good product and adds a great color to my lips. This stuff is wonderful and doesn't dry me out but keeps my lips looking AMAZING!

This is a great product!!!!!
I bought this product because I wanted some colour on my lips but nothing as strong as lipstick. 'Almost Lipstick' feels just like lip balm, is moisturising and has a slight sheen but isn't too glossy.The colour does not go on as thick as lipstick either. The good thing is it doesn't look as bad as lipstick does on dry lips.
Overall is has a very natural look which I love and there is still enough pigment in it. The only bad thing I can think of is the product doesn't stay on lips as long as some lipsticks can (i.e. long lasting lipsticks), instead it needs to be re-applied more often (like lip balms).
I love it and have a few different colours. I recommend this product to everyone.
Packaging: Really pretty packaging, love it.
Price: Its a bit pricey but its a really good product which I get a lot of use out of, so I think its worth it.

I love this product! It's basically a tinted lipbalm that looks really fancy and it actually works. I rate it as expensive, because, well, I don't have money and it seems pretty expensive. But as always, quality comes with price.

I reviewed the black honey version seperately on here, this one is for flirty honey. I got this as part of the gifts from bell with a $25+ purchase and I love it just as much as the black honey. Its a pretty pink, and it looks very natural but its buildable so you can make it stick out more. It looks great either way. My only issue is staying power but I can deal with it for this, reapplying isn't that bad for such a pretty color. Its like my lips are stained with a tiny bit of gloss.

I wonder if anyone can verify something for me. A friend of mine in Canada went to purchase this from a Clinique vendor was informed that it was being discontinued. Has anyone been told the same? I purchased mine from Sephora online recently and there was no indication it was being discontinued..

I got this as a present along with 2 other colors, it came in a set of 3. I LOVE this product! It leaves my lips looking great and lasts quite a while. The colors I got were not overwhelming and did not dry out my lips! It goes on smoothly as well which is great!

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.

I luv this product. I have tried this in Black Honey and I simply love it. I can wear it during the day and at night. Luv the consistency and the feel of this lipstick. Will buy again when finished!

I love the Almost Lipsticks because of the light consistency and easy of application. The slim silhouette means that you can apply this without a mirror, which is great when you're on the run. I also like the soft and glossy [but not too glossy] colors].

I wish I'd tried this a long time ago. I'm not fond of matte full-coverage lipsticks because I think they are usually aging, dry, and harsh. But, I also don't like sticky too-shiney gloss. I usually turn traditional lipsticks into this sort of product by wearing lots of clear balm underneath to make it more transparent, soft and moist. Almost Lipstick accomplishes all this in one simple tube. I love that it's non-sticky, slightly shiney, non-glittery, and very soothing. The color "Almost Blush" is beautiful. It's a rosey YLBB color with enough vibrancy to light up your face and just enough brown to make it natural. I also tried the famous "Black Honey", but it was a bit too dark for my light complexion (brown hair and eyes) - and gave me a more severe look. But I imagine that for darker complexions or fuller lips, it would be beautiful. "Almost Blush" was my second, more successful experiment. I think this is going to be my Holy Grail since it does everything I'm looking for in the right color.
