  • "This is my favorite lip stick of all time, I have been using it over a year now its amazing and very rich moisturizing. It does not have any scent to it. " in 104 reviews
  • "I had read in InStyle Mag that this was a universally flattering color. I tried it and I fell in love. Like the other reviewer said, it looked like it would be a dark Goth-like color in the tube, but once it's on it takes your natural lip color and intensifies it. " in 64 reviews
  • "I am NOT a lipstick girl. At all. However, I adore this shade from Clinique! It is lightweight like a gloss but goes on non-sticky like a lipstick. The color appears dark in the tube but goes on the perfect touch of color to enhance any makeup style. Somehow it matches your skin tone perfectly to not be too dark or light, too red or too pink. If you want long lasting lipstick, honestly, I say go back to the 1980s when people even wore it. This is the lipstick for women who don't wear lipstick but sometimes want to complete their makeup look with a touch of color on their lips!" in 21 reviews

Honestly, I am very neutral about this product. It is nothing like I expected it to be, which is kind of a good and a bad thing. It has a lip balm type of feel when applying and it’s smooth and easy to apply. However, the color is so transparent that if you wanted to see any color payoff at all, you would have to put several layers on.

I understand the point behind his is to be transparent - I guess I just don’t understand why you would want something that is so transparent with little to no color payoff. To each their own, but this definitely is not for me.

The shades are very pretty and not what I expected (again). I expected more of a neutral shade range when I heard how transparent this was. But I was wrong.

The one thing I will give it though - is that I like how comfortable it was on the lips. It wasn’t heavy or drying which is very nice.

Let's start off with, I am a lip balm/chapstick girl. I carry at least 1 tube with me everywhere I go. I am not usually a huge fan of clinique lip products (though I use their acne skin care), but this formula is perfect. Just a tiny hint of colour, moisturizing, and it wears comfortably. Which, for me, is huge. It's not sticky at all, super light feeling. I will be adding this to my everyday arsenal of lip products.

Review for: Black Honey more...
I received a small tube of Black Honey as a GWP. I am in love with this product. On me this pulls a soft burgundy/red wine color. I can’t explain it but it just looks amazing. I use this when I’m in a rush and don’t have time to fuss with lipstick. It’s very moisturizing and doesn’t dry my lips out at all. I will definitely be repurchasing this when I run out!

Clinique almost lipstick in the shade Black Honey has been one of my all time favorite lipsticks for 8+ years. The formula is creamy and makes my lips feel moisturized. The color is also a gorgeous berry tone, but it is still fairly sheer so it’s almost more like a tint. I will repurchase forever and if they ever stop making it I may cry.

This is one of my go-to lipsticks for everyday. It has a beautiful color that can be layered depending on how rich of a color you want. It's got a gloss-like texture that goes on really smooth. The only downside is how long it lasts. I usually have to reapply this a few times throughout the day. But it is definitely one of my all-time favorites!

I have the shade black honey and I really enjoy it. It feels very comfortable on the lips, it looks and feels like a tinted chapstick. It is nice for a day when you don’t want a heavy or drying lipstick. The color isn’t very pigmented, but it is a nice tint. It performs just as it is advertised to do and I very much enjoy this product.

I just tried this a few days ago and I bought more the next day. It’s tinted and has a good amount of pigment that’s not overbearing. Leaves a nice sheen on the lips and doesn’t feel dry AT ALL which is a problem I find with most of my lip products. When it wears it turns into a light stain and continues to look good.

I got this baby in a Sephora play box a little while ago and man oh man. I love how smoothly it glides on and the perfect tint of red appears on my lips! It was perfect for when the sun dried my lips out and couldn’t wear a heavy lipstick! I may have to purchase these in the near future! ❤️

The color looks really dark but it's not. It's like a slight tint. I would have never bought it just by looking at the color but I got a sample of it from Sephora awhile back. It goes on so smoothly and has a hint of shine like gloss. When I say I love this item... It's an understatement!

Are these drying or do they have a lip balm kind of feel?

I have been looking for new brands of lipsticks to try out. Do your lipsticks stay all day and are they matte?

Is the color actually more nude or "natural" than the color of the stick itself let on to be?

Is the lipstick pigmented????? Because it happens to me all the time that I buy a lipstick/lip gloss product and it just isn't pigmented enough.
