Stare into the blackness. Gaze into the lipstick abyss. Let’s face it: Clinique Black Honey Almost Lipstick is pretty darn scary to look at. Ignore that though, ’cause Black Honey is actually a real treat if you’re in the market for a non-staining, sheer, ‘just been kissed’ flush of colour. The lovechild of a gloss and a lipstick, the sheer balm-esque texture gives a soft veil of colour that works with my natural liptones to create something that’s better than natural.
Black Honey is a delicate rosy tint without any shimmer or glitter, and with a satiny balm-like finish. One swipe is enough to give my lips a post-make out flush, two swipes gives a classic English Rose crushed petal tint.
If you read swatchgirl.com on a reasonably regular basis this is going to be an old refrain, but I’m digging Black Honey because it’s a lazy lip colour. Not wearing a slick of makeup? Black Honey. Rocking a smoky eye? Black Honey. Hungover and ashen faced? Black Honey, Black Honey, Black Honey.
Clinique Almost Lipstick is AU$36.00 for 1.9g, available from all Clinique counters and from Clinique.com.au. Happy (almost) lipsticking!
