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.

Let me jump on this bandwagon 30 years late-- this lip product is bomb!!! One swipe is like a cherry lip balm color-- you can build it up all the way to a vampy berry tone-- and as dark as it...

I just don't get the hype on this product. It's just a sheer lip gloss with a bit of dark tint to it. It's not particularly pretty or flattering. It kind of slides all over my lips too. It's just...

Deep blackened raisin color that has a sheer soft shine. Actually merges with the natural tone of my lips to add color but is not over the top. Feels very light weight but I do have to re-apply...

This stuff is very hydrating, not sticky or heavy. It just feels like a lip balm. But the colour is amazing. Swipe on a little for the perfect light wash of "my lips but better" colour, or layer it...

There is something unique about the color that really suits me, so I have bought Black Honey many times. Okay, it isn't perfect. I don't wear it alone, because it just isn't balmy or moisturizing...
