Review for: Lovely
I received this product in a Sephora Play box and was disappointed at first because I love bold, opaque lipsticks. But when I started using this, I was pleasantly surprised! I love that I can use this lipstick for some sheer color when I'm not wearing makeup, but I can also build up the color for when I'm wearing a full face of makeup. It has become a product I keep in my purse at all times.
Review for: Tender
This is a really natural moisturizing lip color. It's great for when your lips are dry or when you what a more natural look. It's so comfortable and light I often forget I have it on and I don't feel like I need to take it off before I eat or drink the way I do with other lipsticks. It's a bit pricey but all Clinique makeup is. I recommend this for a natural look or for those with dry lips.
Review for: Shy, Chic
This is a decent tinted balm. I have both colors but I don't use them often. The pink might as well be clear on me, doesn't show on my average red lips. The black does show, it's nice, kind of a warm hue that I prefer more for fall. The formulas ok, light but not super hydrating. I love balms and have many, tinted and not tinted, so that's why I don't reach for these really a lot.
I received a sample of Black Honey in my Sephora play box and at first I didn't think I'd care for it. But this is actually a great product! When you don't want to put something on your lips that is too drying for too sticky or too much color, this is the lippie for you. I used it till it finished and purchased it asap as I felt that there was nothing out there like this!!

The only thing I somewhat liked about this product was how it made my lips feel. They did feel hydrated for a little while. I had the shade black honey and it was not very pigmented at all (pic is 6 swipes). The smell also gave me a headache. It is very waxy smelling. I would not recommend.
I got this in my sephora play box in the shade black honey. I absolutely love it. The color is flattering and subtle. It doesn't have great staying power, but it wears gracefully and can be reapplied without a mirror. I will be buying the full size when my sample runs out.
Almost lipstick is the best! This has been my go-to lipstick for years, and it never looks out of style. The sheerness of the texture and feel but richness of the color is hard to match by any other brands. This feels comfortable like chapstick on your lips, so even those that don't usually like traditional lipsticks would love this. I recommend this for anyone who is looking for an easy-to wear product in a signature color.
I'm not impressed with this lipstick. I get the point is for it to be "barely there", but it's TOO barely there for me. I do think this is a personal choice, and I can see how there would be appeal for some. But if you're into pigmented lipsticks, this will most likely disappoint.

I received this in the shade Black Honey in my Sephora Play box and I really like it. It's a nice subtle color for those days where I don't really feel like wearing normal lipstick. The price of a full size version and the fact that Clinique isn't really cruelty free are the only things stopping me from purchasing. But if that doesn't bother you, I'd say go for it!

Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey is the be-all-end-all, one size fits all, best color ever! I have yet to find someone who doesn't love this cutie. It's sheer, almost like a tinted balm, and stays on for a pretty long time. The packaging is beautiful, sleek, and sophisticated. This is my go-to everyday color.
Q & A
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?
I've heard so much about the black honey shade of this? Describe the consistency, please!
How pigmented and long wearing are these? Fav shades? Satin or matte finish?
