description

Transparent pigment merges with the unique, natural tone of your lips to create something wonderful and yours alone. Clinique's cult classic Black Honey is more than lipstick. It's a phenomenon. This iconic shade is famous for its chameleon-like ability to flatter all skin tones yet look different on everyone. The secret is its perfect blend of blue, red, and yellow pigments in a creamy, sheer base that melts into lips, playing up their natural color. Don't be fooled by the way Black Honey Clinique Lipstick looks in the tube. Transparent pigment glides on a sheer, glossy slip of lightweight color. Allergy tested. 100% fragrance free.

I don't know why i haven't heard of it. It's obviously not a lipstick, it just like a tinted lip balm and also the best tinted lip balm that i have ever used. The color is not shown at first but...

The colour is nice for fall/winter though too dark otherwise (on my fair skin), but my main problem with it is that the formula dries out my already-dehydrated lips. Also, there's a slight...

I got this as a sample from Sephora. I was excited to try because I heard some many great reviews about this almost-lipstick. I really like the color. It's like a black cherry color, when applied...

This product is a mixture of a lip balm and a lipstick. It's pigmented strong enough to see it on your lips, but do not expect your lips to be as dark vampy red as the color in the tube. Once...

I like a really natural look but my lips are very pale and pasty looking and this livens them up but looks almost completely natural. Moistens without looking glossy or slick. The shade is perfect...

I've been wearing this since 1977, and have rarely ever been without a tube of it. Doesn't matter the season or occasion, this is the "Almost Lipstick" that always looks right. It's definitely...

I just don't get it. I received a deluxe sample of this in a Sephora Play box this month, and was initially very excited. Clinique is an old-school brand that tends to do lip products very well...

This is a very wearable color for everyone. Its not an intense color which is why its called "almost lipstick". I got this when I was starting out with make-up and I still love it to this day. For...

Absolutely gorgeous colour with the option to layer from barely-there to vampish. I do wish it felt a little more permanent, it stays slippery like lip balm until it wears off, which I don't...

My go to basic daily lip. I love this color and formulation. 'Almost lipstick' describes it perfectly. It is very sheer but it's so pretty!

Wish I could make this work for me, but my daughter told me I looked "goth". Sigh. Suitable as a staying in the house lip balm, I guess!
